“What a delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2014

We drove up from Cannes to visit Lake Como, and stayed at Villa Mirabella. What a treat, and exactly as expected. We received great advice about the ferries and local restaurants, and Paolo even made reservations for us, making it a real pleasure to stay at the Villa. Highly recommended.

We spent four nights in this hotel at the beginning of October. We chose it based on other reviews of this hotel, and these reviews were more than accurate. The location is perfect for visiting many of the highlights that Lake Como has to offer. A few features to commend this hotel: underground parking- a necessity when roads are close to the lake or the mountains; the hotel was spotless, obviously Paolo and his family take great pride in creating a welcoming and gracious environment; the breakfast and dinner- the breakfast was more than substantial and tasty, we opted to have dinner at the hotel for 4 nights and the meals were delicious. I have left the hospitality to the end because it was so noteworthy. Paolo was always pleased to provide suggestions about places to visit and how to get there. The hotel has many brochures on the major sites. We were a bit off season, so Paolo also served us our dinner. His service was both gracious and knowledgeable- often times suprising us with a little "treat". There were many other gestures that made the stay very memorable including sheltering us with umbrellas. Room tip: we were travelling with family and we each had a room on the first floor that shared a terrace. The rooms also overlooked the lake. Beautiful. We got to see the snow on the mountain tops when we woke....yes, snow at the beginning of October, unusual but very dramatic! We have and will continue to recommend this hotel- a place to feel quite special in a very special setting.

Room Tip: See the review: Also the hotel has an elevator so the floor that you choose should not be a concern...

We stayed at Villa la Mirabella with friends and loved every moment. The bookings got a bit complicated which might have tested some hotels, but Paolo was endlessly patient and polite. We had a lake view with balcony room - it was comfortable, clean, spacious and pretty, with spectacular views to Bellagio and the mountains behind. A very good breakfast was served in a sunny room which looked out onto one of the many terraces and sitting areas in the grounds. We had a delicious meal in the hotel one night and there are numerous other places to eat nearby or in Bellagio. Paolo and his family are wonderful hosts - they make you feel really welcome in their charming hotel.

A tip about getting there without a car ... the C10 bus goes from Como St Giovanni train station and can get very full, and it goes less frequently on a Sunday.

We chose this 'Albergo' from the reviews on Trip Advisor as we had decided to spend a few days on Lake Como at the last minute. It's a family run hotel and is absolutely delightful in every way. From my initial email enquiry, Paolo was always on hand to give help and advice and he could not have been more hospitable. We told Paolo on the last day that he had presented us with a real problem......we wanted to tell everyone how wonderful the hotel is but we also wanted to keep it to oursleves! In the end, we have decided to share it with those who are looking for a quiet, impeccably run hotel which exudes understated elegance. The recent restoration of the Villa has been carried out to an exceptionally high standard and in the style of the original Villa. The view from our room overlooked the lake and mountains and the room itself was spacious and comfortable. We dined in every evening and enjoyed all of Paolo's father's cooking. The three course set menu was excellent value and cooked using locally sourced ingredients. The breakfast was superb and you really didn't need to eat again until evening! The Villa is situated in a perfect location for exploring the villages around the lake by boat and is only a short walk to the Villa Carlotta which has beauitful gardens as well as a rich history. All in all, a stay which will live long in our memories.

Room Tip: Rooms by the lake have the best view but you may hear some traffic noise. The garden side is quieter...

My husband and I chose Villa La Mirabella because of the reviews on Tripadvisor. We were so happy that we did. All of the previous reviews say it all. We spent two nights in a suite that overlooked the lake with amazing views of Bellagio. The room was decorated with beautiful hand painted furniture and shutters. Obviously the family has paid a lot of attention to detail.
The hotel is very conveniently located close to the ferries that bring you to the other towns on the lake. Although we did not use the pool it was very nicely situated on a small hill looking over the top of the hotel.
Paolo was so hospitable and helpful. He went above and beyond to make us feel as if we were his only guests. Then we noticed he was as gracious with everyone - a really wonderful host.

If you are planning a trip to Lake Como and enjoy staying in small charming hotels Villa La Mirabella is definitely the place to stay.

Room Tip: A room in the front has beautiful views of the lake and Bellagio.

The Villa La Mirabella is a wonderful place to stay. It has the feel of being at home with touches of elegance. Rooms are spacious and very clean. Common spaces--living room and dining room--are very inviting. The family operating the hotel are so friendly and accommodating. Breakfast is a treat, and dinner was extremely nice--good food and excellent service. Can't say enough good about this place. It is small and intimate but provides privacy also. The pool out back is a bonus with its wonderful view of Lake Como. Altogether lovely!

Used to stay in this beautiful hotel in September together with family and friends for 5 nights. I'm travelling a lot for both business and leisure and used to stay in many places around the globe but, believe me, Villa Mirabella earned the highest marks for everything - location, appearance, services and attitude of the Owners - Paolo and his family. We went to Como for the wedding of our daughter and whatever was required during last minute preparation was either arranged or assisted by that lovely family. I would like to take this opportunity to say big THANK YOU to all of them !

Room Tip: Please ask for a lake view room
