“Fantastico!”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

A fantastic welcome from a lovely family in an idyllic village. Mama made our dinner which was outstanding and the family were just lovely!. We were on motorcycles and there is secure parking in the car park opposite which has the best view I have ever had from a car park. Great value and a great place to stay!

Touring Europe by motorcycle can be a challenge, finding good accommodation with bike storage at a reasonable price, yet allowing one to visit all areas, not just the main tourist towns.
Albergo Rosa in Cerenno is a gem. Almost hidden from the main routes, yet right on the main thoroughfare through Carenno at the S.E. end of Lake Como.
This older style property is a family concern and the welcome and service are superb.
Opposite the hotel there is a large tiled terrace with a smaller covered areas for seating and enjoying the view.
The view of the terrace was a tad different when we arrived as the terrace was given over to our 12 motorcycles and the owners chained and padlocked the terrace gates for our machines' security... not that I think there is any particular problem in this area, but it was just one illustration of the owners desire to look after us.
The hotel has a restaurant within it and the fare is tasty and local. What folk might not know is that "Mama" as we called her, does the cooking. She professes to be a cook not a Chef, but like Mama on the Dolmio Adverts, she rustled up a wonderful dinner for 13 giving us all several choices and providing a three course meal with wine/beer and coffee, all for €25 including a tip!
I had a triple room overlooking the terrace (see picture) and this had a large bathroom with sink, w.c. and bath with integral shower. Everything was clean, worked well and was in keeping with the vintage of the hotel.
This is one place I will visit again if I am in the area... do not overlook this for some main-stream hotel by the tourist infested lakeside. Enjoy real life with the real people.

Room Tip: Get a room overlooking the terrace... fine to keep an eye / ear on the bike and the view os super.
