                                  • Lovely location friendly staff and Como Nord train station 2 minutes away. A very nice hotel and very convenient to lake. Helpful men at front desk and the employee just said sorry. Room were very good and breakfast was excellent.

                                    Italy may be improved by installing screens on the windows.

                                  • We liked the location and the ferry port is 1 minute away. Hotel staff is very polite and speaks good English, immediately across the road from Lake Como is perfect. Rooms are clean, breakfast is well presented.

                                    I traveled to other places in Italy, furniture old and no "casual" bar snacks as opposed to restaurant meals could be taken.

                                  • The location is perfect and restaurants etc. Short taxi ride to railway station. This hotel is amazing, our room on the sixth floor overlooked beautiful Lake Como and the staff are all friendly and well services. The bathrooms are updated and clean, food and Bar are always exceptional.

                                    Very poor value for money and amenities for a lesser price. Interior a bit dated and reception were not helpful simply told us to write to the manager.

                                  • The location was perfect, train station was not very far away and nearby I found good restaurants. The hotel was very clean and the staff were helpful &. Bathrooms were large for Italy and bar and reception were welcoming.

                                    The lake view rooms can be noisy at night and the internet is not free can be obtained for a fee. The elevator is also dirty and quite small, the owner could very well take a bank loan and refurbish a little bit.
