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.
