Reviewed 30 May 2012

Family owned and managed, Hotel Europa was the highlight of our three-week travels in Italy. We originally picked it for its location in Sorico on the north end of Lake Como with easy access to both sides of Lake Como, and where the topography opens up into the Pian di Spagna and Lago di Mezzola Nature Reserve. Located off the main road, Hotel Europa is in a quiet location with a spectacular view of Monte Legnone.

We were warmly greeted and shown to our room with balcony and view. Hotel Europa's rooms and bathrooms have been newly renovated and modernized, are well lit, and comfortable in all respects. New digital TVs are in each room, and we were particularly delighted in a having new, enclosed shower. Free Wi-Fi is available in each room and throughout the hotel. Hotel Europa has installed solar panels on the hotel roof in its policy to incorporate energy-efficient, environmentally-sound systems in its modernization plans.

Hotel Europa has a full restaurant and we decided to eat there on our first evening. We were in for a treat. Son and hotel manager, Mattia, seated us said he would check with his mother what specialty she was cooking that evening. Freshly made ravioli was the answer, but we could have anything on the full menu. It was delicious and was the best of all the pasta dishes we had in Italy. At breakfast the next morning Mattia came in with a basket of newly-caught fish from Lake Como that her mother was cooking that evening. It, too, was absolutely delicious and we ate every dinner at the hotel.

Mattia and his family are very knowledgeable of the entire region and what there is to offer and will give you valuable tips, hiking, kayaking, mountain biking, paragliding, fishing, sailing and day trips to all of the interesting towns around Lake Como among them. Relaxing along the beach shore and park next to Hotel Europa just adds to its quiet pleasantness.

We highly recommend Hotel Europa and look forward to staying there again soon, and for a longer stay.

You are really very kind, this review it's even better than a professional presentation of our hotel, so thank you very much!
If I remember well, during your stay you found an afwul weather, however I'm happy and proud you appreciated our hotel, our lake and above all our homemade pasta! :-)
It is always a pleasure to accomodate American guests, cause you are almost always such nice and polite people, so that we hope to see you soon again...

Ciao e grazie,
Mattia and family

This was just a stop-over for us and we were lucky to be first in the redecorated room. Very clean and perfect family room for 4. Bathroom clean and new. The view wasn't brilliant, garden still a bit of a building site, but very friendly and lovely homemade pasta for evening meal. Breakfast a bit sparse, but maybe we should have asked for more. Good value for money.

Room Tip: Family room for 4 had a great pull-down bunk bed - although not suitable for very young as no sides...

Thank you very much for your stay and your good review, you really are a beautiful and kind family!
I'm sorry for the breakfast...but yes, if you had asked us for more, we would absolutely have tried to satisfy your requests! It's always difficult to guess all guests' needs and tastes, especially with foreign guests...
Unfortunately, the neighborhoods's garden is (only) temporarily in a mess due to refurbishment works...

Best regards and thank you,
Mattia

Very hospitable - great food, always fresh and often surprising - beds ok - pillow a bit hard - ask for a softer one. The view from our room with a terrace onto the lake and the mountains was beautiful. We had planned two nights and ended up staying five days! Great area for bathing and walking - start from your hotel.
