The hotel looks fantastic from the outside and is almost as good inside.
The staff are very helpful.
Food is okay ,not amazing,but plenty of choice.
The setting is lovely and has great views of the lake.
There are a few nice bars locally.
A quiet place to stay compared to bellagio but that's what we were looking for.
A great spot to be and easy transport either by bus or boat to different villages.

First time at Como and stayed at this hotel for a week, very old and grand but nice, restaurant all ok, always something to eat, staff hit and miss some friendly others not- but no bother. Hotel in on the roadside so handy for lake ferries, buses and the noddy train. Sun terrace always had beds- no towel leaving or up early-great! No tea or coffee in the rooms, rooms a little tired but adequate as we were always out. Needed more than a week to do what we wanted, went to Como on the bus and back on the ferry, Balagio visited on the ferry ( 10 minutes) and looks the most lively place ( opposite Cadenabbia)/ we did a lake tour on the ferry - visiting mist of the ferry ports but not disembarking the ferry boat. Weather was excellent, not much to do in the evening at Cadenabbia, we visited Menagio twice on the noddy train and had dinner there one evening- great meal. Restaurants all very busy with huge queues outside. Used the local bar most days next to the hotel, went into local village and found a bar that was very cheap €4 for two large wines! Excellent - when at the hotel or local bar usually €10 or €12 for a beer and wine. Will go again and would recommend- one of the nicest places we have ever been!! Fantastic.

Lovel old building but inside the rooms were very modern. The restaurant was lovely and the staff very friendly. Couldn't fault the food. Fantastic views over lake como. Very handy for the water taxi.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the lake.
Stayed: October 2017, travelled with friends

The four star rating belies that this hotel is superior to some luxury hotels I have stayed in across the globe. We fell in love with everything. The old world grandeur is still in evidence in the late 19th century lobby and the sweeping staircases. We asked for a lake view and could not have been more delighted. The room and bathroom have a breathtaking 180 degree terrace view of Lake Como, taking in Lenno and Bellagio. Breakfasts on the top floor were delectable - not to mention that starting your day staring at the mesmerising view of Lake Como is without compare. The piece de resistance though is, undoubtedly, the terrace - with 240 degree views across Lake Como. If this were a painting, you would question that it was sketched from reality. Probably the best place on earth!

Stayed: April 2017
