“Excellent place to base your holiday in Lake Como”
Reviewed 2 July 2012

This really is a hidden gem in Lake Como. Beautiful setting right on the lake with pool, water sports, an amazing wine feller you can take a tour round and blissfully peaceful. The owners are very welcoming, run by a few generations of family. Bedrooms are basic but more than comfortable (you are not going to be in your room for long!).

Few tips - you can get a bus ticket from the bar a short walk left out of the hotel which would take you either to Como or Bellagio to pick up the ferry and do a day trip. We went from Como to Cerbino, Trezzmeno, Melagio, Verena and finally finished in Bellagio for dinner later that day and caught a taxi back later that evening to the hotel. I would be tempted next time to change it round and end in Cerbino for dinner, it was beautiful!
There are a few good restaurants near the hotel, particularly Hotel Auberge a short drive left from the hotel, beautiful food.
You will need a car to get to the hotel from the airport and is handy for trips out for dinner

Only improvements (and these are minor I must stress) is breakfast is very basic, would be good to maybe offer eggs as an option and although others are saying how great the restaurant food is I have to say I wasn't overly impressed, but these really are just minors!

Do not hesitate to book this hotel, most other hotels we saw didn't match the character, location and charm of this place

The staff were fantastic and made us feel very happy and comfortable.
The facilities were great with amazing views from the poolside area and restaurant.
The food served in the restaurant was of a very high quality.
I was taught how to wakeboard on the lake.
The location of the hotel was in a very quaint, picturesque area that was not too close to any real busy, crowded tourist thriving places. This gave us a taste of true life on the lake.
The value of the stay was extremely reasonable and I will be returning indefinitely in the future.

We stayed here for a long weekend in June 2012 after deciding to visit Lake Como. The Crotto del Misto is a wonderful family-run hotel on the banks of Lake Como with a wakeboard/ski school attached! The service was warm, welcoming and first-class. The food was local, authentic and delicious. The rooms were clean, spacious and simply furnished and the wakeboarding was great fun with excellent coaching included.

The hotel is situated in the small village of Lezzeno on Lake Como. Emphasis on small. It is a 20 minute walk to the nearest ferry in the centre of Lezzeno (main way of getting about the lake) and there is a bus connection north to Bellagio (which has better ferry connections) and south to Como.

Overall we would definitely recommend the Crotto and would definitely return.

Room Tip: Not all rooms have lake view
