We stayed at the Royal Victoria Hotel for three nights. The staff are very friendly and the service is great. The breakfast was excellent, but we didn´t try their restaurants for lunch or dinner. The location is good, right in the centre square, but it´s also right next to the church that kindly gave us a wake up call at...

This is a lovely hotel but the room we were given which was the last one available, was very small and though it was billed as a view room one had to hang out the window to see the view. I would only warn people to ask to see their room before agreeing to stay. The breakfast is pretty mediocre...

Dear Guest, Since you didn't mentioned your name, we could not know who you are and in which room you stayed in. As you told, if it was the last room available and you're talking about a window, we can suppose you stayed in the only room with window we have, all other rooms have balconies. All lake view room...

Lake Como is a incredibly beautiful. We stayed at the Royal Victoria and during our stay I was sending pictures back home of what it was like to eat their complementary breakfast while looking over the lake and the responses I got were the lack of belief that we could be doing anything so cool. and that is exactly what...

I did not stay overnight in the hotel but just enjoyed the terrace for an evening drink with a snack. The coffee and all the drinks are quite expensive and so is the price of the rooms which made me decide not to sleep in the hotel. You can really enjoy the evening (the terrace is facing to the west)...

This is a stylish hotel right in the main square in the town centre and overlooking Lake Como. It is a 10-15 minute walk from the train station and about the same from the boat jetty. We had a double room at the front of the hotel overlooking the square. It was of a modest size with a fairly small...

Whilst the pool and bar area are lovely, it is these amenities that you're paying a hefty price for. My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights in September. We were paying £300 per night and this was the most expensive of all the hotels we stayed in during our two week holiday. We were shown to a tiny...

We selected this Hotel for a special Birthday treat for our Parents while visiting Lake Como.

Very clean and pretty hotel. Staff is courteous but in a business like way. There is free wifi in lobby but 4 euro for 24 hours in room. No type of lotion included in bathroom supplies.

Reception staff are all friendly and exceptionally helpful. The location is superb and the views from the breakfast restaurant of Bellagio and the lake are to die for! Best views on Como. Breakfast buffet very good. We had a room facing the piazza and it was a standard size (a little on the cosy side) but was a bit dark,...
