“La Darsena - June 2013”
Reviewed 1 July 2013

Absolutely excellent. Perfect location barely steps away from boat to Como and elsewhere. The friendliest and most helpful staff you could imagine. Excellent dinner at the restaurant too. And no, I'm not related to the owners. I just had a wonderful time there.

Room Tip: I stayed in one of the rooms with a small balcony facing the lake. It was like being on a ship.

For such a small and quaint hotel on the water in a likewise small and quaint town on the lake, this hotel does far better than its rating as a 3-star hotel. It feels and seems much nicer. The staff is very friendly. The room (we stayed in the only one available - facing the hills) was simple, but clean with a good desk, simple bathroom that worked, and a semi-hard bed. We were pleased with the amount you get for a pretty standard rate in the Lake Como region. Their breakfast was ample and is situated on their terrace, which, with good weather, offers a beautiful view of Bellagio and smaller towns down towards Como. As for those driving there, as we did, there are only 3 spots reserved for free parking next to the hotel. If you get one, it is very comfortable as it is right next to the entrance. If you can't, there are other paid ones next to it, and some more spots down the road on the way to the hotel. Just be ready to improvise a bit. We had to scoop it up when some people eating dinner were finished. Overall - this hotel was great and very much worth the price.

Room Tip: It is small - so if you can get a room facing the lake, that would be nicer. But the one facing the...

Dear Sir,
we thank you for you review and we would like to clarify that yes, we have the 3 private parking places on the yellow lines but our guests can park on the paying parking places (blue lines) free of charge too since we buy some special permits from the municipality.
Kind regards.

No, we weren't sure what to expect, but the location of La Darsina simply astounded us, - the view, the convenience, the staff & the restaurant were all first class.
We had the room with two balconies, one south facing, one east, so the sun was always nice regardless of the hour.
There was no chance of finding somewhere closer to the lakefront, as La Darsina is built up from an old boathouse originally founded IN the lake!
Located in Tremezzo, the proximity to the various ferry terminals & tour boat wharves makes it very easy to move about the lake & visit other villages.
We'll be returning soon.

Room Tip: The dual balcony room is the best.

This is not a luxury Hotel.It is better.The location is the best on the lake,the owners and staff give personal and friendly service.The spotless rooms are basic but have all you require.We stayed 7 nights in a corner room with a large balcony with some of the best views over the lake you could have.The perfect place to have a glass of Presseco which the owners gladly bring to your room.The breakfast has a good range of all that you would need to suit all taste. And great coffee .And of course you have the view from the terrace .The owners gave us some great ideas for day trips as we had our own car.The restaurant (separate review ) is the best in Tremezzo.For the price this is one of the better hotels we have stayed at.and we travel 3 times a year to Europe from Australia.The owners deserve the good reviews.

We stayed there for 1 night in May, very friendly management, nice and cozy hotel. The room was ok, clean, bathroom was spacious, clean... Tremezzo is a quiet place compared to Como and Bellagio. We took a boat ride accross the lake to Bellagio, it was more touristic... We also ate at the restaurant of hotel Darsena, again a very nice restaurant, very frendly owners and decent food. It was a saturday night and the restaurant was fully booked. Try to go there before sunset to enjoy the scenery. The hotel has free & convenient parking. I think it was good value for money...

Just got back from a week at La Darsena. Our room was spacious and clean, with a balcony overlooking the lake. We were very pleased there was air conditioning as it was very hot. The staff were lovely, and the breakfasts were great - taken on the terrace every morning with the wonderful views over the lake. What more would you want. Food in the restaurant wasn't bad either!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony.

We stayed at La Darsena for 8 days in June, to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary.
There are not enough superlatives in the book to describe both the hotel and restaurant.
The rooms are spacious, furnished in traditional Italian style, exceptionally clean with huge comfortable beds, our room being on the corner of the building, benefitting from two balconies, one of which jutted out over the lake with views that were straight out of a travel brochure. The air-conditioning unit could not be heard at all.
The wonderful breakfasts were taken on the outside terrace, which also looks over the lake. We ate in the restaurant for two evenings, and without exaggeration, the meals were as good as it gets. The staff could not be more pleasant or helpful, and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
Tremezzo has the advantage from the western side of the lake, of being able to look over to Bellagio and Varenna, just to name the more well known villages, and really it was hard to drag ourselves away.
Don't let the 3 star rating put you off, this was 5 star in every way.

Room Tip: Pay the little extra for a lake view, it was worth every penny.
