We spent 4 nights at this wonderful family-run private hotel and have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone else looking for a base in the central Lake Como area. Being set well back from the busy lakeside road, it is extremely quiet and encourages a slow pace. The owners (all multi-lingual) took extra time to make sure that we had all we needed and to give advice on the best places to visit.
Our bedroom was spacious and comfortable, providing access to a private balcony with views out to the lake. The toilet/shower room was clean and everything worked without fault. The air conditioning was efficient (once we realised there was an over-ride link to the balcony door) and the TV delivered programmes in a wide range of languages (although we used it very little).
Breakfast was from an eat-all-you-want cold buffet with a good selection of cereals, yoghurts, fruit, meats, breads, rolls, juices, etc. It could be taken in the dining room or on the terrace overlooking the lake.
We chose to leave our hire car in the garage (out of the baking hot sun) during the day and made full use of the free minibus service which the owners run to and from the ferry terminal. At 15 euros, a mid-lake day ticket allows you to hop on and off any of the ferries to Lenno, Bellagio, Varenna and Mennagio.
The car was then put to good use in the evening when we returned to the lakeside to explore the local restaurants. (I'm afraid we can't recommend the hotel evening 'snacks' - there is a much wider range of excellent dining available down in the town).
Other than this very minor criticism, Hotel La Perla is faultless and we wouldn't consider staying anywhere else if we return to this particularly pretty part of Italy.
