After reading other reviews before travelling to this hotel, I have to confess I was a little apprehensive about going to stay there, but was pleasantly surprised. Yes the décor in the room was a little dated and yes the hotel website is a little bit cheeky stating that the Lake view superior rooms are on the lake as the ones in the hotel are not, but the view from our balcony did overlook the lake and was beautiful anyway!
The bed was also a little annoying as it was made up of two beds pushed together and by the morning there was a big gap in between that one of us ended up falling down! All of the above did not really bother me as the room was otherwise ok and clean.
The breakfast is great and I have never seen so much choice at a buffet before and you can just go back and forth as many times as you like! As previous reviews the bar is expensive but no more expensive than anywhere else I have been to in Italy. Some people also moaned about the parking charges but as space is at a premium its just one of those things that you have to accept whilst you are there and as I said before we have been charged for parking in other parts of Italy too!
Lastly I would like to say that we found the staff very friendly and very helpful.
All in all this hotel is in need of a little bit of modernisation and I am not sure if I would have paid so much for the same hotel in the UK but I am glad that I stayed here as it is right near a boat stop and does have some lovely views. The pool is also nice. We didn't use the spa during our stay as we were out and about too much.
Lake Como is a beautiful part of the world and whether you stay here or at another hotel you will have a lovely time!
