“Lago di Como Vista”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2013

A very nice property right on the west shore of Lake Como with the main building across street from lake, with a tunnel access under the narrow Via Regina to two separate villas, the Ristorante Imperiale and the pool. Looks as if it has been remodeled. Easy access to Water Taxi as stop is right there. The accommodations are nice, but lacking some simple amenities like enough electrical outlets. Internet access is good. The breakfast buffet is adequate with coffee that tasted like instant Nescafe. The pool is fantastic, with the food at the Regina Pool bar above average. The Ristorante Imepriale is romantic with tables along the lake and one very romantic table in the Gazebo. Service is average but Kudos to Modi and his intelligent attentiveness. We also enjoyed the Piano playing of Sergio every night.

What a fantastic hotel, staff were great ,English good and helped us with all the info on boats and trains on departure. The hotel is across the road from the boat depo.2 doors up is a great restaurant at a lot cheaper price than the hotel. Breakfast was the best in our 5 week stay in Italy.
Behind the hotel are many steps, please climb them as the real experience of Italy begins, life is now a slow pace. The mountains set on the lake, the sea planes,cobblestone steps, the old Italian lady with a walking stick its a hidden secret. Theres a small deli up there we bought a bottle of Italian wine so bring a cork screw. Theres a gym and a spa but that's an extra price.We visited may small villages which of our whole Italy stay lake como is the best and will return. Hovever a would probably stay a few days in some of the other villages as well. The Grande Imperial hotel was the quietist of all the villages.

Room Tip: room overlooking the lake

'Scotland Monarch' says everything I was going to say! We too have just returned from a lovely holiday with Riviera Holidays based at the Grand Hotel Imperiale in Moltrasio. We thought the quality and presentation of the 4-course evening meals were superb. The waiters were courteous and friendly and were happy to supply alternatives if the options did not suit. The breakfast was excellent too.The hotel itself is lovely though the prices in the Hotel Bar are too high. The hotel management should be asking why their pianist is playing to an empty room while the Bar a few metres down the road is full of their hotel guests.
Our room was fine, though unfortunately, it it did not have a balcony (many others did, we were just unlucky I suppose) - it was a decent size, clean, towels changed daily, and the room facilities good.
The Hotel is just over the road from the Lake and the views are wonderful - it is just a pity that apart from a climb to the village (worth doing for the views but not after a 4-course meal) there are no walks (except to the nearby Bar!).
We had a lovely holiday at this fine hotel.

Room Tip: A room with a balcony and a view of the Lake if poss.

We had a wonderful stay here. Loved every minute. Good food, great service. And clean spacious rooms. The hotel is right across th road from the boats into lake Como. The food restaurant is on the lake and the view rakes your breath away. the gardens are so lush. Wonderful !!

Room Tip: The boats leave right out the front of the hotel.

My wife and I have just returned from a week’s holiday at The Grand Imperiale Hotel at Maltrasio Lake Como Italy. It was a tour booked through Riviera Travel The tour its self was very well organised with a good rep. but very tiring as every day but one there was a visit to various places of interest with early morning starts. The hotel location was not too good as there was nowhere to have a walk near the lake only one bar and three restaurants. In my opinion the hotel did not live up to my expectations. The room was fine even though it had no balcony it was a decent size, clean, towels changed daily, sheets once during our stay no problems though good but not up to four star standard. However as others have reported the dining room had a section assigned to Riviera Travel arranged so that there was always room for their party, they said. The breakfast was very good buffet style with fruit, serials, plus cheese ham, hot food juice, tea or coffee. However the evening meal had only a limited menu consisting of a chef’s surprise, a choice of two starters, two main courses one fish one meat then similarly two sweets. This was especially for Riviera guests not the normal main menu; the quantities to me were extremely small. Friends who did the same tour but at a different location/hotel had the same menu as other guests not a cut down menu. The other gripe was the bar prices, I know you expect to pay a little over the odds but not so much e.g. 4.50 euros for coffee 2.50 Euros for water 7 Euros for a glass of beer (only 4 Euros for a large beer at a bar nearby And 2 for a coffee) needless to say the hotel bar remained empty. which was a shame as there was a piano playing to only one or two guests (everyone else occupied the bar next door).

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a balcony & take plenty spending money with you.

They pride themselves with the "Grand" Hotel name, but in my opinion, this is just a "gran" (large) hotel. The service at the front desk was not really welcoming and made us wait for 10 minutes before helping us while there were three of them talking to one single customer. Rooms are large but pretty impersonal and the service is abysmally bad. I was there with my daughter for a wedding and suffice to mention that I asked for somebody to iron my suit and was told that I could do it myself in a dedicated room. I DO NOT go in a 4 star hotel to get this kind of service. On top of that, the price is really like if it were a "Grand" Hotel...

We've just returned from a great holiday with Riviera Holidays based at the Grand Hotel Imperiale in Moltrasio. I had been a bit worried - due to some reviews - that the hotel food and service for a tour group was going to be poor. Nothing could have been further from the truth. There may only have been two choices at each course for dinner, but the food, service and presentation could not be faulted. If there was nothing to suit on the menu, the staff were happy to meet individual needs - and indeed it was easy to have a larger portion of one of the starters instead of a main course at any time. The attentive waiters were friendly and eager to please. The hotel itself is lovely and the room facilities good. If there was a 'fault' it was the lack of a promenade to walk along the lake - the climb up top the village in the high temperatures was a bit much for some people. However the setting is beautiful and ideally positioned to make good use of the public ferries and buses. If you are already booked to go here, look forward to your stay!

Room Tip: Ask for a lake view - you might only get a partial view but it is worth it.
