“Very Nice Hotel”
Reviewed 16 August 2008

We loved this hotel. helpful and polite staff, clean, airconditioned and chaming room, nice breakfast and nice lake view from the restaurant, free parking. internet was 6 euro for oneday. We stayed road side room but there was no noise.You can go to bellagio by ferry from near the hotel. The return ticket is about 17 euro. If you are driving there, be careful about Italian drivers. Some of them are not patient.

I can only agree with the previous reviews that this is a lovely place to stay with helpful and friendly service. Clean, cool and comfy rooms. We got a deal through the hotel website (part of Centro Hotels) for a two night stay in the smallest room but included entry to Villa Carlotta which is just down the road (and is well worth a visit - fantastic gardens that go for miles....)
The room was a reasonable size with a good bed, air conditioning, and double glazed windows which was helpful as our room did not face the lake but rather the road - however the street noise was no issue at all as the windows kept out any noise. The bathroom was large and no bathtub but a great shower and really nice fittings in the bathroom, with basic soap and shampoo included although I prefer to use my own.
We drove to Hotel La Darsena and really enjoyed the windy roads to get to the hotel although at one point we thought we would have to back up to let a large bus coming the other way get past us at a narrow stretch of the road! Parking at the hotel was no problem as they provide passes for the public parking area just outside of the hotel. The food was fantastic for breakfasts (included) and dinners which we were able to sit out on the terrace both nights we ate there. In the late afternoon after returning from a short ferry ride over to Bellagio, we walked down to The Grand Hotel Tremezzo to sit on their elevated patio and have a glass of wine or champagne and enjoy the view (friendly service there too - and nice bar snacks!). Then back to La Darsena for our lovely meal on the terrace and another fantastic view while the sun went down. We hope to be back to stay here again some day.

  • Liked — Comfy rooms, quiet, spotless bathrooms with big shower. Excellent restaurant.

We have just returned from spending 9 nights at the Hotel La Darsena on beautiful Lake Como. We had the best room which had 2 balconies overlooking the lake and with this being the only hotel on the lakeside of the road around the lake the lake view rooms were peaceful. None of the other hotels in Tremezzo enjoyed this type of location. We were only a couple of minutes walk from the ferry to all parts of the lake and a 2 minute drive to the car ferry. The room was large, well fitted out with a large modern bathroom. With one exception (weather) our excellent breakfasts were eaten sitting on the veranda overhanging the lake, watching the boats go by and throwing scraps to the ducks and fish. The restaurant was of the highest quality, again taken (if booked in advance) on the veranda and clearly had a high reputation because a number of guests came by (big!) boat to eat and using the restaurant's own landing stage. The owners and staff were always smiling and attentative to our every need and we were really sorry when our stay came to an end. If you want somewhere to stay which is intimate with high levels of service and cuisine this is the place. Recommended unreservedly - we shall be going back!

I agree with all the previous reviews. What makes this hotel stand out is that the owners/family are always there, right on site; they are absolutely charming, extremely welcoming and helpful in every way, and really care about guests' opinions, suggestions and comfort. There's no bar and no lounges, but a lovely restaurant (serving some of the best food in the area) and terrace overlooking the lake. The rooms are spacious with modern bathrooms and the location is beautiful (note: near a busy road, but this did not bother us). Breakfasts are outstanding. We loved it.

My sister and I visited Lake Como in April and decided to stay in Hotel La Darsena, having read reviews on Trip Advisor. We were very impressed with the friendliness of the owner/managers, Ezio and Tiziano and Maria at reception. They were efficient, helpful, informative and hard-working every day and in the restaurant every evening. The food, both for breakfast and evening dinner was very good and was always served efficiently and with a smile. They made us feel welcome and ensured that we had a very enjoyable stay. We were quite sad leaving this little gem of a hotel, its lovely staff and the beautiful Lago di Como. We will be back hopefully before the year's end. We highly recommend the La Darsena and have very happy memories of our stay there.

We spent a wonderful three nights at Hotel La Darsena. We had the end room with two balconies, one with a table and two chairs and the other overlooking the lake. The room was spacious and comfortable. The bathroom was also large, although there was only a tub with a hand-held shower - not what we're used to. We arrived after the kitchen had closed for lunch but the staff very kindly put together a cold plate of delicious meats and cheeses for us. Breakfast included cereals, meats and cheeses, yogurts, fruit, hard-boiled eggs, juices, pastries and pots of delicious coffee. The meal at the restaurant was one of the best we had during our trip. It was wonderful to wake up to the sound of the waves under our window. A couple of early mornings we were treated to the sight of a great blue heron at the side of the lake. The location is perfect - close to the ferry and within walking distance of Villa Carlotta - a beautiful palace with lovely gardens. In sum, a great place to stay!

The hotel is, to all intents and purposes , hovering over the lake, so when you step out onto your balcony you look down over water and across the lake taking in Bellagio and south. Wonderful.
The room is very pleasant and the Restaurant, as previous commentators have mentioned, is excellent.
The staff were all very friendly and helpful.
Book it.... pronto !
