Hotel Risi is perfectly located. My wife and I stayed in this hotel when I visited Colico (Italy) for business.from the 4th floor, the appearance of the mountains,seaside buildings and the lovely blue color lake is breathtaking. The staff are very warm.

Room Tip: The view from the 4th is amazing

stayed here on a business trip in August 2012 for what was suppose to be a week but was cut short to a night :)
Fantastic location, friendly staff who are very accomodatiing, i arrived late due to getting lost (several times) and the chef even made me a quick meal before he left, very nice.
i'm heading back again next month and will definately be staying here again.
the oonly thing that let it down was the decor (dated) of the rooms which could be the style for Italy (no offence)i don't know, this would still not put me off. Hopefully i'll get a suite next trip.

Room Tip: get a room (suite prefferably) with a lake view.....awesome!

My husband and I stayed here for 10 days in july. Lovely room with basic furniture but perfectly adequate. Small gripe as we were on the 1 st floor we couldn't see the lake just the trees. However the view from the restaurant was wonderful. Of course lovely Italian food reasonably priced and great service from all staff. Our WiFi dropped out a bit but in the scheme of things it didn't matter. Love Italy love Lake Como. Recommend this hotel.

Hotel Risi has the most perfect location right on the lake, however the hotel really isn't all the much. The rooms are old and need some renovation, the beds are rock hard, aircondtion not working in the rooms I had. Lake view is amazing, but if you don't get it you might as well keep the windows closed.

The restaurant has really good food.

Room Tip: Stay clear of room 101, it gets a terible smell from the kitchen in the afternoon.

My wife and I stayed here for 1 night while travelling through Italy.
We had originally booked to stay at Bed and Breakfast DaDi but decided against it after viewing the rooms as we thought the B&B quite depressing.
While the hotel generally is quite old and quite dated it is positioned right on the lake overlooking the pier.
We found the staff friendly and helpful with reasonable English.
The breakfast was just average continental.

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Risi for 2 nights last year while visiting family in the area. We got lost initially, after catching the train from Milan and walking around Colico for a while (at that point google maps had the hotel located further up the lake) although some friendly locals helped us out. The view is what makes this place, the room is spacious, open and clean.. but looking out the shutters every morning onto lake como is just amazing! The breakfast was nice and staff lovely as well. Prior to booking the staff were prompt in replying to my emails and it helped us greatly that they also spoke english. Great place!

I stayed just one night, and was on business. This hotel isn't really designed for the business traveller, but there aren't many alternatives in Colico.

Situated right on the lake edge, it's a great setting, and I'm sure in high-summer it's very beautiful, but on a cold, late October evening it didn't really do it for me, or anyone else at the place was deserted.

I had a the top floor suite, which at 160 euros a night wasn't really what I wanted, and certainly not for just one night, but it was all they had available.

The suite sleeps 4 without adding floding beds byt can easily sleep more. Didn't like the decor, but that's just personal taste, but it was clean. No bath, despite a huge bathroon, but the small roof balcony overlooking the lake was a plus.

Had to pay and extra 5 euro for an internet connection, which should really be free in this day and age, and especially when your paying 160 euro a night!
