“Road side hotel with clean rooms and nice views”
Reviewed 25 June 2012

This is not a 4 star resort hotel: it is a small business hotel which happens to be located in a building overlooking a public park on Lake Como in a small town (Abaddia) with no real tourist attractions or anything to do nearby. Most people staying there are business people.
Rooms facing the road and noisy and horrible. Rooms facing the lake have great views, with a small terrace. Bathrooms are nice and functional. AC works OK, but TV did not (digital channels in Italian only kept coming in and out, freezing...). No news channels at all. Terrace was never cleaned. Breakfast was minimal. Coffee was horrible. Dining room is small and noisy and stuffy.
As the very nice young girl told as tat the reception: there is nothing to do here, best go to Varenna if you want any dinner.
Public beach in front of hotel is a plus if you want to swim in the lake with all the local teenagers. That is actually fun, but this is not a private beach of a 4 star hotel; and there are no facilities.
So do yourself a favor and stay in Varenna and take boats from there or stay in Bellagio.
One plus we found: the village does have (if you climb up - a 10 min walk) a hidden restaurant called "il Vicolo" with rather expensive but good food; the typical local pasta and lake fish, you can not drive there but can walk there easily). Try that if you are stuck at this hotel - nothing else at all to do in Abaddia anyway.

Room Tip: You pay much more for lake front rooms but road side rooms are really too noisy.

We loved this hotel, lake and beach close at hand, the only drawback is that we were not able to access the Internet, a restaurant nearby, a good breakfast on the terrace. There is parking, beautiful views of the lake.

From the road this hotel is very uninspiring, however the rooms are modern, spacious and have fantastic views of the lake. When the weather is good breakfast is served on the terrace overlooking the lake. Could not be faulted on any level. Also the reception recommended a nearby restaurant, Il Vicolo which was a highlight of the holiday.

Room Tip: Ask for a lake view room, it is slightly more expensive but well worth it

The hotel's add was very misleading, it gives the feeling of a villa style hotel in open spaces but it is a main road hotel. The room we where given had twin beds and was next to reception so it was very noisy. We paid extra to get a lake view and seeing we were on the ground floor the view was only visible if you stood on your toes.
The women on the reception desk were lovely but the manager was very arrogant and treated my husband like an idiot when he asked how to open the huge window/door in our room. (It had a big sign on it indicating we would pay for damages so my husband took no chances and asked.)
The room had mosquitoes in it so they buzzed and bit all night. For the price and the add, it was sadly disappointing.
Apart from all that, the area is stunning with huge mountain cliffs falling away to the beautiful lake Como.

I used to go to this hotel for business reasons In Mandello.
When I last went there I had the most disappointing surprise, the managment changed.
No more family friendliness, no more charm, cold rooms, sad faces and no eggs, juice or hams at breakfast.
So so sad. I'll never come back!

You can't beat the scenery at this location. The breakfast was outstanding with views of the lake while eating. The rooms were clean and comfortable, very roomy, great bathroom. The only thing we had a slight problem with was the train. It was close to the station but could've used more frequent stops. If you had a car, it would be perfectly fine to stay here. Very convenient to take the ferry to Bellaggio and Menaggio, anywhere really. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Very nice stay.

We stayed for 3 nights and found the hotel to be very clean and with good sized bedrooms. The views are stunning and it is only a very short walk to the lake front and lovely public park area! We had breakfast on the terrace with wonderful views of the Lake! The breakfast was more than ample, with good choices. The hotel appears to be family run and the staff are very helpful, giving us times of trains and places of interest. The train station is only 5 - 10 minutes walk from the hotel which allowed us to visit other towns on Lake Como. The restaurant next door to the hotel is excellent and well worth a visit! We did not have a car while in the area and found it was no problem using the public transport and would return to this hotel again.
