Stay in room 25 or 26 with the little balconies overlooking the square and out to the lake at the corner of the square. I picked this tip up from another online review and asked for one of these rooms - one of the best decisions I made on my whole European trip. This is a fantastic location and so cheap in comparison to other options in the area. Booking was a bit more complex in this day of online reservations. But emails were responded to quickly and even my Babelfish translated text ended up with the right room! Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Was a great central spot from which to explore the lake on the ferries over several days. The hotel restaurant was great food simply done. Lots of other restaurant options in the area from cheaper to expensive and a nice bar on the main square to sit, Wi-Fi your emails, sip Campari+Soda, take in the lakeside mountain vista and watch the world go by. Lake Como is just so spectacularly beautiful to gaze out on! Would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone.
