“Hotel La Darsena - a piece of heaven on earth!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2014

La Darsena wowed us with its breath-taking view of Lake Como against the backdrop of the gorgeous snow-capped Italian alps. The hotel is located on the edge of the lake so we were able to enjoy the boats and ferries going by, the beautiful sunrise and sunset of each day that went by, the dazzling and romantic twinkling lights from the islands across at night, as well as swans and ducks frolicking in the water right in front of our coveted corner room which had two balconies!

Breakfast selection was of very good quality, with Parma ham and melon included in the spread! Having breakfast with a first class view of Lake Como was like experiencing heaven on earth. Dinner at the highly rated hotel restaurant was also one of the best dining choices we made in Italy. Their lamb rack and desserts are exquisite!

Another major plus point is that Hotel La Darsena is located just next to the ferry terminal, which makes it very convenient for us to hop onto the ferry and visit nearby islands like Bellagio which is just across the hotel.

Moreover, parking is free of charge.

If you want to stay in an intimate, personal, clean and good quality hotel which is a family-run business, Hotel La Darsena is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing holiday. During our stay there, we received personalized and impeccable service from the family and were also given a private tour of the kitchen because we wanted to praise the chefs for the delightful dinner we had.

Book early as both the hotel and restaurant are very popular with tourists and locals!

This is the best hotel I've ever stayed. From the moment you arrive Ezio and Tiziano make you feel like a special guest. They are very attentive to your needs. Our room had a balcony overlooking the lake. The room is very clean, comfortable and well appointed. Ezio's son, Giuliano, provides you with great information to help you make the most of your visit and also is very attentive to make your stay wonderful. Breakfast is excellent with many choices of quality food. The restaurant for dinner has wonderful views of the lake, ambiance and an excellent menu. The hosts make you feel like a guest in their home. I hope I will be able to return in the future and stay again in this charming and inviting hotel.

Room Tip: Our room had a balcony with a view of the lake and the Alps in the background. I would recommend thi...

Our fourth stay at La Darsena and it never disappoints. We feel at home there - Ezio and Tiziano are wonderful hosts. Everything about the hotel and restaurant ticks the boxes for us - the rooms are comfortable, a good size and spotlessly clean - with wonderful views across the lake from the balcony. We always have lunch and dinner there at least twice during our stay, and enjoy trying out the new menu each time we visit. It's terrific - I can't think of a better place to stay on Lake Como, regardless of how big your budget. We are already planning activities for our trip next Spring.

Room Tip: Go for a lake view - it's worth it.

Hotel La Darsena is a fantastic place , my wife and I stayed five nights in April and had a large attic room overlooking the lake, the views are stunning, the hosts are extremely welcoming and nothing is too much trouble, The choice at breakfast is varied and plentiful. Location is excellent with the ferries stopping just along the waterfront and several bar/restaurants nearby.
The Hotel restaurant is of a very high standard and is regularly used by both guests and local
residents. A perfect base to explore the lake.

This hotel is a gem and I definitely want to go back. My husband and I went for one night on our way to Switzerland and loved it so much we made a detour to stay there another night on our way back to France as well. La Darsena is literally sitting in Lake Como we looked over our balcony and there it was directly below us, completely overwhelmingly breathtaking panoramic views of probably the most beautiful place in the world! I use a wheelchair and there was a disabled parking space right outside, good access into the building and a lift wide enough for my chair. I did not stay in a disabled facilities room as my husband can help me but the room we were in was gorgeous. I also have the most delicious steak of my entire life in the restaurant! I am going to back as soon as possible! 11/10! Bravo for La Darsena!

Room Tip: go for a lake side room

Traveling 200 days per year.
This is the best value for money ever. Large room on the waterfront. Excellent genuine cuisine. Family run business. Cleanliness and service in top.
Location is perfect for exploring what Lake Como has to offer.

Stayed at La Darsena first week in April with my husband and 5 yr old daughter. Had a lakefront room with balcony over the water and the views were breathtaking... Sat out on the balcony every morning to watch the sunrise over the mountains. Breakfast is served in the restaurant with a panoramic view over the water & mountains once again, both inside as well as on the terrace. Cappuccino was terrific, fresh made pastries and jams, assorted platters with plenty of options. Also ate lunch/dinner in the restaurant which is well known and highly regarded by the locals-- food was outstanding. Both the host as well as staff have 5 star etiquette, and spoke fluent English with us (also observed them speaking French to others). Very happy with the location, you could walk along the water to many restaurants, short walk to ferry to go anywhere, and next to hotel is a park (added bonus for kids). They also have their own dock, so you can hire a private boat service to pick you up from the hotel. Absolutely enjoyed our stay here, and we look forward to our next visit!
