My wife and I spent a week at La Darsena in September and loved every moment. La Darsena is right on the shore of Lake Como. We stayed in a room with twin balconies and were able to feed the fish and ducks from the balcony immediately above the lake.

We were made to feel welcome by Ezio and Titiano from the moment we set foot in the door and they and the staff continued to look after us all through our stay.

We took the room on a half-board basis and were really impressed with the quality of the food. - You can't do better and we would really recommend that you do the same.

Thanks to all the staff for making us feel welcome and looking after so well. We will certainly return to La Darsena on another occasion.

Room Tip: Choose one of the rooms facing the lake and away from the road. The end rooms with two balconies ar...

This hotel should be your number 1 choice at Lake Como. If you want one of the best locations on the whole lake; top notch service from a very friendly staff; clean, functional rooms; a magnificent view; and an onsite restaurant, then there are very few competing hotels which can match Hotel La Darsena. This is the only hotel in the greater Tremezzo area that is smack on the lakefront. I have stayed on Lake Como several times in the past, and in my opinion, the area around Tremezzo is the most convenient to the most interesting attractions. Villa Carlotta is one of the highlights, and it is just up the road. The lake ferries going to Bellagio, Menaggio, and Varenna, or the ones headed north or south to all of the towns in either of those directions, all leave from the terminal a short walk from the hotel. There are several restaurants and cafes a short walk away as well. But you must definitely eat dinner at least once at the hotel. It is wonderful. Terrific views from the porch tables looking across the lake, or the cozy, attractive furnishings in the room inside, make either dining option a wonderful setting for the delicious and innovatively prepared food offered. Oh, and we loved the breakfasts too. They were better than in some 4 star hotels. I can't recommend this hotel enough. But my suggestion is to choose a room overlooking the lake. We rented the south corner on the first floor for our daughter and her husband, and one of the balcony rooms for ourselves. Loved them!

Boutique hotel on the water's edge. My husband and I enjoyed 3 nights in a balcony room looking across to Bellagio. Everything was just perfect! The hotel is spotlessly clean and the service excellent in every way.
On the first evening we enjoyed a meal in the restaurant. Food was delicious and reasonably priced.
A great place to stay or enjoy a meal!

We loved this hotel - the staff were lovely - very helpful! We had chosen this hotel because it was a small family run hotel, and it was perfect. The room was wonderful, with a view overlooking the lake, and a balcony. It was a lovely light and airy room. The food was fabulous - we ate there both nights we were there. The dining room also had a wonderful view overlooking the water of Lake Como, and was a bright and well presented environment. I would certainly recommend this hotel, and would definitely stay there again.

We have been looking to stay at the Darsena for some time, when we spotted a booking possibility late Sep/early Oct. Stayed six nights half board. Wonderful hospitality from the family, really excellent food and service, both dinner and breakfast. Very clean comfortable room overlooking the lake, with the ferries passing close to the window and a wonderful view across the lake to Bellagio. Location excellent for the ferries and local buses, we forsook a hire car for a change. Access from Linate easily accomplished, using buses and trains. Beautiful area, we will be going back to explore further some time in the future.

Room Tip: Lakeside rooms a must.

The best thing about this hotel is that everything you read in previous reviews is true. It is an impeccably run boutique hotel and restaurant right on the waters edge. We stayed 4 nights and dined in 3 of those, it is best to reserve a table early because even though the restaurant is quite large it is often booked out by locals or other tourists, it's that good. It is family run and nothing is to much trouble, the included breakfast is a delight, the free wifi is good, the bed was very comfortable, the room was spacious and very clean. The bathroom was a little bit tight in a wheelchair, it had a wheel in shower with a shower stool, a good vanity basin and toilet but there were no grab rails. Unfortunately there is only the one wheelchair accessible room (room 109) and it is at the rear with a double glazed window on to the road, you do get a little bit of noise but not enough to make it uncomfortable or stop you sleeping. The ferry stop is only about 150 metres from the hotel and is accessible via a footpath which is very narrow in parts. Villa Carlotta is about 500 metres away and is completely wheelchair accessible if you have a narrow chair. In all our stay at Hotel La Darsena was a highlight of our holiday in Italy and we would love to stay here again. The only other advice I can give is book in early.

Read previous reviews and decided to book here for 2 nights. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in attic room 222 which has a small window looking directly over the lake. Room very quiet, spotlessly clean with good Wifi signal in the room. If we came again would definitely try and secure lakeside balcony room on the first floor.
Ate at the restaurant on our first night on the balcony. Excellent food and service with a thoroughly relaxing view. Hard to beat watching 2 white swans and their young cygnet feeding just below us and then watching the quite large lake fish feeding the following morning at breakfast.
The restaurant prices are a little higher than some of the other Tremezzo restaurants but this is more than made up by the quality, service and the excellent wine cellar.
An excellent choice if you are staying in Tremezzo.

Room Tip: Try and secure a lakeside balcony room on the first floor the extra cost is well worth it
