Fantastic hotel - very wel kept with a small pool and sunbathing area. Tennis courts for the crazy people and a front garden with the most stunning view ever. A family run hotel with that very feel. Everyone is helpful and accomodating. the bar is very well priced and the restaurant was very good and well priced - quite a hearty menu so be aware. Tjis hotel has without a doubt the best view of the lake but that come at a price - you may see the terms "hill" or "slope" being used when describing the location - dont be fooled it is "HIGH" up. I would say even for the fittest it is not do able on a daily basis. Car hire would be recommended not just for the "Hill" but to explore stunning lake Como. The hotel were very supportive and picked us up from the bottom of the "Hill" on several occassions so please take there number and call them when you arrive (we walked it!!!). If you are a light sleeper i would recommend ear plugs as the walls are paper thin - serioulsy. Great owners, great hotel, amazing views not to be missed and fantastic price.

Room Tip: Room number 7 - views are stunning.

Beautiful hotel, great views, wonderful staff, nice pool, tennis courts, and superb dinner. Get a room with a view. Huge bathroon my Italy standards. A bit of a drive from the lake but worth it if you want quiet. My only complaint is about the breakfast with prepackaged baked goods. A minor point, but it was strange because eevrything else was top notch.

Room Tip: Get a view room.

Our stay at the Rusall was extremely relaxing,the staff were all very friendly and the manager was reasonably multi lingual and was always very helpful, his advice in regard to where to get a train to Milan from (Griante) was extremely useful. The location, although not right on the lake has to be one of the best on Lake Como with unsurpassable views. Our room was comfortable and of a generous size by Italian standards and although we were in the new annexe we still had excellent views, although not over to Bellagio. The food was of a reliable and good standard, we normally followed the managers / owner's reccommendation and were never dissapointed. The atmosphere was very welcoming and represents very good value for money
Breakfast was of a good standard, cooked eggs were always available, with a good selection of cheeses, cold meats and cakes.
It really is best to have a car, as the hotel is a good 1500metres up a steep hill from the main road and although there is a footpath down to Tremezzo and the Villa Carlotta you need a pretty good level of fitness to do it, parking is generally available on the lakeside.

Room Tip: This hotels location is all about havinga lake view, so try and have such a room. If not possible d...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hotel Rusall - we were in Como for a wedding and decided to stay in this hotel as it had been recommended by the wedding coordinator. The views from the hotel, garden and pool are absolutely stunning - you really couldn't ask for better. We had a room on the second floor on the corner with a double aspect view so really couldn't have asked for better.

The staff were fantastic and spoke a multitude of languages, they even came to pick us up when we were struggling to find the hotel on arrival and dropped us off at the ferry link when we left too.

It is quite a walk down into Tremezzo - it's not that it's far but the steepness of the incline was a bit of a killer. Don't let that put you off though.

We ate in the restaurant of the hotel a few times during our stay and each time went with what the owner recommended rather than looking at the menu and we were never disappointed. The mushroom pasta at lunchtime was quite possibly the best I have ever had and the four course evening meal is very good value compared with prices in restaurants in the area.

Our stay at Rusall was extremely relaxing. The staff and manger especially were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The location, although not right on the lake, is one of the best in the Lake Como area with unsurpassable views. The room was comfortable and the food was of a reliable standard. The atmosphere was also very welcoming. It is also very good value for money.

Room Tip: Go for a room with a lake view.

A nice hotel with a fantastic view over Lake Como, try to make sure you get a room with a view as there are a couple that don't.

The walk up the hill is a good walk up the hill and will burn the gelato off you had during the afternoon.

The breakfast is OK, they had these pre-package croissants that your better off leaving be. But on a high note they do serve fresh eggs. We had dinner there one night and it was good, reasonably priced, and the wine list s decent.

There's also a nice sitting room off the lobby which is nice if it's raining.

Our room didn't have a safe which we knew about before hand but was still annoying so FYI. Bathroom was huge in our room could have added some to the room proper.

Above all else it was quite which was great.

Room Tip: If you don't go for a room with a view your missing the point of being there.

This hotel is located about 5mins drive up the hill from Tremezzo in a little village called Rogaro. The lake and mountain views from the hotel grounds were fabulously superb and the owner really friendly and helpful. The garden areas were well kept and really nice with lovely little olive trees. The pool area absolutely perfect - a good size, well spaced out with uninterrupted views of beautiful-ness over the lake and mountains (also the pool area was in the sun until the evening). At the pool side, large soft towels were provided and there was a new changing/toilet block - all kept extremely clean. The whole hotel was clean and tidy. We were in room 32 which had a 'mountain view' and if you craned your neck out of the window the lake could just be seen. Our room was clean and had everything we 'needed', but quite dated and basic. Although there was a lift to all of the floors, there was no air con, which we really missed in 30-35oC heat! The bathroom was very small with a half sized bath/shower. Breakfast was really nice with a good variety of fruits, breads, patisseries, yogurts, cheese, ham, choice of eggs etc - we sat outside for breakfast every day overlooking the wonderful views. The evening meal in the hotel restaurant was really, really good - it smelt and tasted delicious and was apparently local produce / fish from the lake. There was an underground car park - which was great as it kept the car cooler and safe. A tennis court / rackets etc could be booked/hired for use too. Overall, this was a fab hotel to stay in mainly because of the location and pool/communal areas, as our room wasn't the best.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room with a lake view / balcony
