Regina Olga Hotel
Ranked #7 of 7 Hotels in Cernobbio
Reviewed 11 August 2010

We stayed at the Regina Olga for a week prior to our wedding in Lake Como. I wouldnt class the Regina as a 4* hotel, more like 3*. We were disappointed with the size of our room & also it had a strong smell of cigarette smoke. Our friends and family were also staying in the hotel and some of the rooms have been freshened up with new flooring and decor, so it seems a bit hit or miss! Our main decision for choosing the Regina, was the swimming pool, however when we arrived we were told it was closed and wouldnt be opening until mid-June (after we checked out!), which was a disappointment for the children in our party.
The bar in the hotel closed at 12 every night, regardless of who, or how many people were there, and we found that the bar staff could be a bit abrupt and unhelpful.
The continental breakfast was nice, with a variety of breads, cheeses and hams. I did however avoid the cooked breakfast as it didnt look so appetising!

The hotel facade & location is the saving grace!

We found we ran out of options for evening restaurants for dining out and found a hidden gem: Albergo Restaurant Pizzeria Della Torre. It was actually recommended to us by a local. The food, service & views were exceptional,and it wasnt too expensive either (It is a 5 minute taxi ride from Cernobbio)

Delayed review, having just used trip advisor to book a holiday I thought I should make some contributions…

We stayed in this hotel on a driving holiday last summer, staying one night only. You can imagine how this hotel was once very grand but I don't think it has been re-decorated in the last 40 years.

It is in a nice location within a few metres of lake Como and there are some restaurants nearby (beware that these seem to close quite early). The room we had was nice and spacious with a small balcony overlooking the entrance (prime location would be the other side of the hotel facing the lake); it was nice to be able to sit outside.

Breakfast is ok, nothing amazing, but adequate. We didn’t eat anything else in the hotel

The hotel seemed to have one song playing on auto repeat in the public areas; this drove us mad during breakfast and is now doing the same trying to remember what the song was!

Free parking available in front of the hotel, though this got very full and people were having trouble getting their cars out in the morning.

I would recommend this hotel as a good stopover but not for anything more than a couple of nights.

Our room was smelly and the staff was unfriendly. Their were people living at the hotel / motel hanging their laundry out the window.
Hotel Regina also charged for internet service at 3.00 euro an hour and bottle water for your room.
This is not a four star hotel-we paid $338.00 usa a night-
Very Disappointing compared to the other hotels we have stayed in Italy.

Returned to this hotel for the third time, and we had a lovely room with a balcony and lake view. An easy walk to the nearby conference centre, and to the quay for regular boats to Como and other towns on the lake. There is a pool with an attendant, and wi-fi is available throughout the hotel (including pool-side) for €10 per day. Free car parking is an asset.

The only thing I don't like is the Dining Room - I find it quite a depressing room, so we tend to use other local restaurants like nearby Harry's Var

The reception staf was never very friendly. Although the bar staff made us food after hours one night and was very firendly. There was hair on the bathroom floor when we checked in and smelled as if it was unclean. the sheets had obvious stains on them. Overall, we didn't think this hotel deserves 4 stars. To us the staff friendlyness is the most important thing.
The location is very nice with a great Tratoria right accross the street. It's only a short and very beautiful boat ride to Como.
Unfortunatly, my wife and I don't feel it's worth the money

A nice hotel for Lake Como visitors. The views are lovely as long as you ask for a room with lake view and balcony. The service at the front desk is excellent. The ladies there were always gracious, smiling and helpful. The location is also excellent with restaurants and shops right outside the door. The downside is that the breakfasts, which are included in room rate, are only okay. Cleanliness is not great. Maid services is sloppy. Single rooms can be small.

I've read the reviews that say this hotel is tired, or in need of an facelift. Ultra modern it isn't, & I too was a little disappointed with the standard of the breakfast, but I found it to be a charming hotel, memorable and full of character. It was quiet, clean and comforable, the staff were polite and friendly and all the amenities worked as they should. I slept well, and the lake view (recommended) was just breathtaking. What more could you ask for? I rated this hotel 5 for location, but it really should be a ten!
