Locanda Milano 1873
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Brunate
Reviewed 24 June 2012

Not easy to get to, especially if you have a larger car. Simple place, not elegant but clean. Really nice gentleman who checked us in, served breakfast, and got our car out of their tiny parking area like a professional driver. Would stay here again, though I might consider splurging for a few more amenities next time.

We stayed at the Locando Milano in October 2011 and found it to be good value, rather than very good as the rating implies (there is no good). It was clearly not tourist season and we had to call to get someone to come and let us in (this is poorly signposted by the way). After that hiccup the experience got better. Our room was quite spacious, if not a little dated but perfectly comfortable. The breakfast was very good and plenty of it and the hosts are charming and attentive. Probably due to the time of year it was really quiet and the bar and restaurant were closed so we had a great dining experience at Bellavista

Good side: Great atmosphere, great hosts, nice town and views, good breakfast, free WIFI.
Bad side: small rooms with no AC, tiny shower, noise from the road if you sleep with window open.

Funicular to Como is close by which is nice, also great view if you go up the hill with car, there is a place to stop and enjoy the view.
I stayed for one night and it was pleasant and nice.
Not sure I got the best price, waiting a bit longer might have saved me some $$

Room Tip: get one with a balcony.

Facilities are basic. The owners are friendly and attentive - but don't arrive on a Wednesday (restaurant closed). You have to phone Frederico/Massimo on arrival, which is disconcerting if you get routed to an Italian voicemail...

Rooms are small, but OK. En suite is a struggle if you are a 6ft 200lb rugby player.

Restaurant is not cheap - but so are all the others in Brunate... Bar is frequented by locals (since it has TV sport), which does add some charm.

Other reviews mention parking problems - don't worry. Leave your keys at the desk and they shuffle the cars around as needed.

This charming hotel is located close to the venicular from Como. It has great charm, in no small part due to the Italian family that runs the place, neither Freddy or Massimo were never too far away (from the bar) at any stage which along with the local soccer supporters (visited during an overcast weekend which coincided with several seria A games) lead to a cosey bar atmosphere. The rooms were adequate and bed was very comfortable, expect it could get quite hot in summer and no sign of air con but wasn't an issue when I was there. There is also a tidy restaurant attached to the hotel which served up some pretty delightful local cuisine.

Room Tip: 2nd floor rooms have balcony and a nice terrace area, 3rd floor has the internet station

The hotel is quite old, but the rooms are renovated, though small and dont have Airco.
Our room was on the second floor and had a small balcony.
Their is a computer with internet on the second floor, which works slowly.
Possibility to park your car at the premises, but as parking place is very limited you are asked to leave your car keys if you leave the building.
Breakfast is continental and good.
Restaurant is also recommended, but not special.
The road to Brunate, which is situated on a hill near Como is quite small and with a lot of small curves.
We staid here 2 days and visited como. While we were there the funicular was out of order and replaced by a bus, which also costed 5 eur for areturn ticket.
