nice surroundings, picturesque environment and an excellent restaurant with local specialities but international wines; great views from the garden only Italian is spoken, breakfast was finished at 9.30 on a Sunday morning
Very friendly people and a fantastic restaurant with excellent authentic food.The restaurant in the glass conservatory was lovely and the atmosphere was vibrant and authentic italian,
It gives you the feeling of isolation up in the mountains and still it is cloce to the town and the lake. The atmosphere is of a big lovely family. No
Our stay was first rate in every respect. We were attending a wedding in Argegno so did not use the facilities at La Griglia as much as we might otherwise have done.
Hotel restaurant serve really delicious food with good value of money. I had the best spagetti that I ever had before. I notice that even local people come to have dinner here. Hotel location itself is on the hill with lake view and have a nice garden. Only 25 mins walk to city center.
the hotel provides a wonderful panorama to the lake comer, there is a small chapel next to it and the morning view with lake and grass is indeed mind blowing. hotel restaurant offers authenticated italian food, most of the visitors are locals, and food is great. not easy to find it, our navi almost led our car to crash.
Charming, quiet hotel about a 10 minute drive up the mountain from Lake Como. Large, clean,and comfortable room. Good buffet breakfast, and popular dinner restaurant in evening frequented mainly by locals. From hotel, great views further up mountain and also down to village of Argegno, on the lake, from which there is a good ferry service to all around Lake Como.
Very friendly and helpfull proprietor. Excellent cooking. The hotel has obviously had a lot of investment in the infrastructure and the quality really shows. It is located in a quiet location away from the busy roads and train lines around Lake Maggiore. Barking dog through the night spoiled the advantage of the quiet location.
The room was very clean and comfortable (great bed), and the staff were very friendly. Breakfast was included and was good. The bathroom was very clean and the shower had fantastic water pressure. Overall, a great place to stay for those on a budget.
We were pleasantly surprised with the accomodations at the hotel argegno. our balcony rooms on the second fllor gave us an awesome view of lake como.
The room was clean, good view of the lake from our balcony, free breakfast that was pretty good in the morning.
Good; the staff were very friendly, and Argegno is an excellent central location on Lake Como! It wasn't quite 5 star, but then I wasn't paying *that* much cash...
The owner was friendly The TV in the room is so small and old.
This place is fantastic. The day spa is superb and service tops
Grand style of decorations, yet very comfortable, No
Fantastic old style hotel with great facilites and great staff. Just about the best location on the Lake Como with great views over the lake and Bellagio. Bad Internet service and ridicoulous to pay extra given the EUR 500+ daily room cost
The Hotel looks very nice from the outside. Furthermore its situated in Tremmezo which close to a lot of nice place like Belaggio, etc.. The reception staff is very friendly and helpfull. The rooms need a lot off refurbishing, its not looked after for a long time. Also the rooms are very noisy, you can hear everything what happens next and above you. The waiters aren’t what you would expect for a 5 star hotel. Long waiting times for drinks and food. They don’t seem to enjoy serving you or answering question. The food and drinks are extremely pricy. I have stayed in many 5 star hotels but this is definitely overpriced. Also the waiters and many other staff don’t speak english. Not a problem when you stay in a 3 or 4 star hotel. It can be charming in the begging that they don’t speak English but i would prefer they would speak English
Wonderful location, great service, excellent food, elegant hotel
Location, facilities, room I was very unhappy with the service I received at the beach bar
Very nice location and facilities. outlook from restaurants and bars over the lake very impressive. Nothing in particular.
the view of the lake
great place, would highly recommend one of the finest hotels in italy i have benn too. none
free internet access
Very helpful and pleasent staff Nice large room with comfortable bed excellent location for ferry. Poor breakfast for a 4* hotel power bath and shower did not work properly Air conditioning did not work properly
Nice hotel right on Lake Como, easy walk to Villa Carlotta and Villa Barbianello. TV needs to be updated and more English speaking channels. no wifi in room.
The staff was excellent and very helpful. The room was clean and very comfortable. Parking was free. Breakfast was good. Excellent location. It should be known that there are additional costs for lake views, this information was not available at the time of the booking. Also that full board was available and what was the cost of this option.
The hotel has an excellent location on Lake Lario (Como) with easy access to water taxi services
location, lake view small television in the room
This hotel was the best....the staff always going the extra mile to help you...the view is breathtaking...the breakfast was delicious and varied. Best hotel in Italy in our trip.
The staff are helpful, but not too intrusive. The location is fantastic and it's great to have the pool as I'd certainly never swim in the lake! The rooms are a bit sparsely furnished which makes it feel a bit cold.
It's not as touristy as the other cities on lake como. It was very easy to get around since the ferry is literally right outside the hotel steps. T The wifi was terrible. This seems to be the case for most of Europe, but it as quite frustrating since that was our main means of getting around.
The lake view is spectacular. The beds were not very good. Creaky and thin mattress.
This hotel is in a beautiful setting, right on Lake Como, with the Ferry adjacent! A wonderful place to relax and breathe!
Easy atmosphere, well run, well staffed and overall very friendly place to go to. None.
It was situated in a pleasant, quiet area. The food was excellent and do try at least one evening meal at the hotel.
nice uphill location with a fantastic view to the Lago di Como, good breakfast, quiet, spacious bathroom missing mosquito net at the windows, rooms could be a little bit bigger, paper thin walls,
A very friendly hotel in a nice location just up the hills from the village.The food was very good and they had an excellent wine celler were you could taste some gret wines,
Friendliness and service were excellent. Good menu and nice wine cellar 'bar'. The location in the mountains was ideal. Air conditioning was not effective but it was not really necessary.
We liked everything about Hotel Corte Santa Libera. The hotel is very well kept, clean, modern and the room was very comfortable. The room was very spacious and we had a wonderful view from our hotel room. The owner is very friendly and tries his very best to make you feel at home. Even the breakfast was very good and it is very value for money. I will definitely recommend it to other people. The only thing is its location. If you are coming with the car, the gps will drive you from the Lugano side and it is a bit difficult to find. It is better if you come from the Como route.
views and staff helpfulness
Excellent hotel with an ideal location overlooking the Como lake. The hotel is owned by two twin sisters and their husbands who provide a family like atmosphere and are extremely freindly and helpful. The rooms and facilities are newly furnishend, very clean and comfortable. Highly recommended!!!
The hotel staff were welcoming and considerate for us during our honeymoon. The staff were well versed, new many languages and would do whatever it took to keep you happy. The pool was super, and the breakfasts were exceptional. Our bed was a combination of two singles and as a result the sleep at times was uncomfortable. The bed was firmer than I am accustomed to using.
What a wonderful hotel, in a beautiful location, the view from our balcony was breathtaking.The staff were helpful, we needed help with transport as we had no car and they helped arrange taxis and gave us directions and information on best places to visit. When we arrived and when we departed they transported us between the hotel and ferry port themselves. The hotel does not have a restaurant, but there is a good snack menu available which kept us fed on several occasions. Drinks and snacks were not over priced as is the case in many hotels. The room (suite for 4) was very comfortable with two rooms and bathroom, safe, minibar, airconditioning, flatscreen tv with sky, and balcony overlooking the pool and panoramic views of lake como. We booked this hotel because we could not get a villa at late notice, i think that eas lucky for us, as this hotel was as good if not better than any villa. Because of the small number of rooms, it never felt busy, and a few evenings we were the only people sitting on the bar balcony overlooking the lake, paradise! Please note, if you do not have a car, this hotel is about two miles up into the hills above Tremezzo. Taxi fare is 15 to 20 euros down to the town or into mennagio.
We found the staff to be consistently helpful and pleasant, and the breakfasts were very good indeed. We enjoyed our stay very much.
Very nice hotel with excellent views over Lake Como. Close to the Lake ferries and centrally located. Pleasant and enthusiastic staff. It's a steep hike up the hill from the Lake. Only microwave meals and snacks in the evening.
the service of the staff, the cleanliness of the hotel and the views from the hotel. none
The location, views and staff made our stay very comfortable. We had everything we needed to enjoy Lake Como Tiled floors throughout with no slippers
The staff/owners were amazing and friendly. Extremely clean, beautiful views.
Great hotel and location as well as staff.
Everthing, location, really helpfull and friendly staff speaking fluent English, the decking by the lake, their excellent restaurant. Noise from restaurant late on Saturday night Sunday morning
Access to swim in Lake como. I didn't care for the music all day down at the Solarium. Sometimes, I just want to relax with nothing in the background.
I stayed at Hotel Aurora with a group of friends. The staff was very helpful and friendly, the restaurant on the lake was lovely and we all felt we would love to stay there again!
Great staff - helpful - very friendly
the owner could not do enough for us and even drove us into bellagio to get the boat and also helped us to plan our days and printed out timetables nothing at all
A lovely hotel with beautiful views of Lake Como. Free parking and a beautiful buffet breakfast.
Lovely hotel and very nice staff.
A peaceful alternative to Bellagio - nice staff - new seaside building is very charming with great views and nice rooms. Breakfast could have been better - but if wasn't below average.
They were so helpful and accomodating. Ferries only in that area a few times a day but a safer way to get around instead of driving.
Good atmosphere, friendly people, lovely place Lacked a sitting room
Freindly & helpful stafd. The location
Hosts very friendly. Although we have been quite unlucky with the whether they have been busy with suggesting alternatives.rich breakfast and extremely nice staff. Good quality restaurant inhouse.
This hotel was a real find, it was more like staying in a country house with very welcoming hosts. All the staff were friendly and knowledgable and couldn't do enough for you (in a very understated way). It's an idyllic spot with plenty to do if your like the outdoors. It is only a 15 minute drive to lake Como. The hotel restaurant was a very pleasant surprise, the standard of food topped some of the best restaurants in London. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel and it's restaurant. Nothing
Breakfast, hotel design, very beautiful gardens, friendly staff Very far away from civilization, however, good location if you want sports (golf) and enjoy nature
Great staff, very friendly. Excelent break fast. No minibar available. The hotel is too far from the city and it is dificult to get there. There is nothing close to the hotel (restaurants, bars, shops, etc)
The room was excellent, the view is also nice. Quite a thing if you want a middle of the moutain hotel. Some noises over the roof in the night, SCARY!
The beauty of the property, the peacefulness and quiet, the accomodating staff, the in-house restaurant for dinner and the inclusive breakfast was very lovely. Nothing!
very quiet place, nice atmosphere, lost in the mountains, huge garden very practical for dogs, tasty restaurant , not far from Milano and Lugano not easy to reach
Friendly and helpful staff, quiet and comforatble rooms, excellent food. Country-style luxury ambience. Creaking iron bedstead
Great location - beautiful views of the Lake and right on the main street with lots of great restaurants, shopping and attractions Breakfast - the buffet was large but looked dirtly and not well presented.
close to ferry & bus stops, reception staff were helpful dining staff were glum, tired room decor, tiny pool compared to no. of guests, mattress needed replacing, broken sink, cigarette burn on bed cover.
Good breakfast, location very good Hotel room very small
The view of the lake from the balcon The shower (it wasn't mobile, fixed on the wall) The air-condition didn't work.
Convenient location close to lake transportation. Very small pool and poorly equipped (no towels/few lounge chairs), no car parking on site.
Pool and sun terrace, breakfast choice good,near to resturants and ferry,view stunning,good value if on budget,try to get corner room with balcony view as you can get a good draft through the room with window and balcony open Noise from road , no air con,
Very cetral for Lake trips Had to rush meal and leave the restaurent at 9.30 pm.on first evening-did not have evening meal in restaurent thereafter.
the vue the staff: poor reception, poor knowledge of english or french, not friendly. I would'nt recommend this hôtel
we booked this hotel but didn't actually stay there, they were over-booked and we got an upgrade to another hotel they own 800m down the road, Grand Hotel Cadenabbia, which was a 4-star hotel, with no extra charge, we enjoyed that. Excellent room, excellent hotel, we got a room with a beautiful terrace and the view was breath-taking!
very good location for different kinds of leisure on Como lake: easy to find, close to villa Carlotta, to ferry boat station. Standart room is normal, breakfast is good lake view rooms have road view as well, and not to easy to have asleep because of road noise. The same with noise isolation in rooms.
Everything, the staff, room, breakfast, and the restaurant was first class, we had a meal on our wedding anniversary at the restaurant over looking the lake, it was perfect. we wish we had eaten in the hotel restaurant more than we did as we went to a "touristy" restaurant that was expensive and the food was awful. only the position of our room .....it overlooked the main road to Como, so was a bt noisy. next time we will book a room with a lake view.
A warm welcome.The staff were excellent throughout. Wonderful position. We want to go back.
Everything was perfect!
The hotel was perfect, small, beautifully located on Lake Como, a superb restaurant lake view restaurant, adjacent parking, very friendly staff, large comfortable rooms with an incredible view of the lake. Only the rainy weather kept our stay from being totally memorable, but even then it was still a special visit.
Excellent staff offering great service. Wonderful stay by the lakeside with breathtaking views.
The staff were amazing- so friendly, so helpful and forthcoming with information on the area. Couldn't ask ask for a better location for a holiday on Lake Como with the room having an uninterrupted view over the lake. The dinners downstairs were amazing. Both nights we ate spectacular meals and could just wander upstairs afterwards.
Whre had a perfect room right on the water. The staff was attentive and the dining room was also great. We want to return.
Staff excellent, food good, room modern and well appointed. Lakeside rooms Ok. Roadside rooms - same quality but noisy. (like most hotels along the lake)
Good location for Ferry and Buses
We have just returned from a fantastic honeymoon where we stayed at La Dersena. From the moment we arrived at the hotel to the moment we left we were made to feel so special. Without hesitation I would recommend staying here. Everything is just perfect. None
Family run hotel makes you feel at home. Very Clean, great view of Lake Komo.
Great staff and lovely views over Lake Como. Simply furnished but adequate rooms with comfortable beds The breakfast croissants had jam inside! Not too good, plain would be better
Swimming pool not in use until June - big disappointment.
Helpful "manager". Local Trattoria. Wooden floors everywhere made it noisy. Could have done with new soap etc. during visit. First night had some noisy guests which when coupled with "echo"/door closures delayed sleep for a while.No previous reviews.
Good location and excellent views The flooring in the rooms and corridors meant that sound carried into the rooms
The view and the cleanliness of the room The noise level at this hotel was absolutely unacceptable. From snoring neighbours, people with digestive problems talking very loudly in their sleep to screaming children at all hours of the day and night. Wooden floors and heavy doors and thin walls make it an impossible place for a sound nights sleep. Spoilt the end of our trip in Italy :-( Would not suggest this place to light sleepers.
The poolside room was lovely (big, great shower). The location on the hill away from the traffic was perfect. The staff had great tips on where to eat and helped us with planning our transport. The breakfast buffet was very basic for the price. Some fruit and eggs would help.
The location. The pool, friendly staff
friendly, nice location, excellent wine selection pretty noisy in the morning
The view!!! No
It was a great hotel just in front of the lake and very convinient location if you have a car, very nice resto, clean, value for money!
Loction was excellant with fantastic views. Local transport to the main town was good.Staff at the resort was very helpful,room was very well furnished and the meals were great.
The view to the lake was fantastic, the food in the restarant was very good and the staff was very sweet. Breakfast: no bread left when we arrived for breakfast at 9.00 a.m. Location: a bit far away from everything, would only recommend the hotel as a one night stopover.
Well situated. Very noisy room under the kitchen. Also lot of noise coming from the street. Poor breakfast and very bad pizzas.
It well-suited our requirements for comfort and ease of access. The breakfast was good and plentiful and the staff were very helpful. However, if travelling there from Como by local transport (20mins journey) be sure to ask for Hotel San Marino, Laglio bus stop directly opposite the hotel - (follow the route by a local map). We had a very unco-operative bus driver who told us to get off 1.5km beforehand and placed us at a very vulnerable location (extremely busy, unwalkable road) in a serious thunderstorm. Thank goodness we had the hotel telephone number who arranged for a taxi to come to find us. No
Cleanliness Breakfast, not enough
The views, the dining room and an extremly nice and helpful couple running it! It's situation is a little isolated but served by a good bus service. The road infront of the hotel is very busy but did not spoil our stay.
everything,except the "new" part of the hotel yes, I booked because I liked the rooms and the atmosphere inside of this hotel, like the pictures on the website, but when I arrived they gave me another room in the "new" part of the hotel, round the corner
Hotel staff is very nice. The breakfast was very good. The room was not vacuumed when I arrived or during my visit. The street noise was very loud. If you don't have a car, getting around is a drag.
Andreea’s hospitality and friendliness, knowledge of the area and helpfulness in providing directions, traffic details and area events, etc; Location- up in the mountains but only 7 km from Lake Como, great view of the surrounding mountains ; excellent restaurant and service; private parking- very rare feature for most of the hotels in the area. The rooms facing the mountains are the best, where the rooms facing the road(great view from the balcony!) may be affected a bit by the noise of the traffic. Noisy bathroom exhaust fans!!!( in process of being fixed!)
Great place, excellent staff and service. Very reasonable prices in the restaurant. The recommended direction to reach the hotel coming from Switzerland leads you via very small and winded mountain roads. Difficult for larger cars and easy to get lost. Much easier to come up from Como - even if 10 km longer.
Too many to mention, the hotel, staff, accommodation, food, scenery, room, decor, value for money all excellent, will reccomend highly and look forward to staying there again None
Analisa , the hotel manager is an amazing woman !!!!! the rooms are clean , the food ( breakfast and dinner ) is tasty , to make this short : this the place that I will come back
Good hotel, the manager really wants you to feel at home and will do her utmost!
The rooms are very clear.The dinner is delicious.The manager,Anna-Lisa is very polite and helpful.We made a new friend.We'll strongly recommend this hotel to all our friends.The place is unique.We promise to visit it again. It would be much better if the price of appartments included cleaning service.
+ The friendlyness of the hotel manageress is first class + Room No. 4 is very "tranquillo" (silent room), we can recommend the hotel to everyone. Safe car parking warranted. Nice garden with pool. The italian style food in the restaurant made our mouth water.
Our stay at La Torre was made special by the wonderful and energetic hostess who speaks multiple languages fluently and who takes time to chat with each guest/group of guests individually. The room itself was spacious and clean. Our room was at the front and this can make it a bit noisy due to the road that runs right in front of the hotel. However, it's a mountain road, so not too busy during the night.
The restaurant is excellent as well as the hotel staff. Breakfast was also good. Good value for money and the staff really do their utmost to make your stay as convenient as possible.
Beautiful location, very children friendly, excellent food, friendly staff, clean,nice room with fantastic view. After 8 straight holiday-days with rain in Norway, we wanted to escape to somewhere warm and nice, where our kids aged 2 and 5 could enjoy themselves. This hotel was the perfect choice. Now we are back in the rain, wish we had stayed longer. No.
Loved everything about this place. Stayed in a superior room with a fireplace and small balcony. Great views of the mountainside, especially on the hiking trails. Dinner at the onsite restaurant was great, fresh ingredients and romantic atmosphere. The breakfast was a typical Italian buffet breakfast but with special touches like the fresh grapes and honey. Staff/owners were very friendly and accomodating, including their bear sized dog. Definitely use the coordinates in your gps, the roads on the way there a veeerry small and twisty. Although the drive is difficult, it is more than worth it!
Great Service, great food, great views, I enjoyed every aspect of the stay. I recommend taking z good walk around the farm to meet the animals :) It is a long drive to the Hotel but the road is a nice adventure.
The ambiance of the place is just wonderful, owners and people who work on the farm are friendly and really kind and a great laugh. Position is just fabulous right up in the hills around Como. You can't see the lake but there are great walks starting very near the B&B that take you to great views across the lake (you have to be a bit fit), with little refuges where you can get a good coffee (of course!) and a bun. The food in the B&B could not be better almost all sourced from the farm, home cooked and fantastic value. The breakfast with its homemade cakes yum yum.. Its 5 steep miles uphill from the lake and when your on a bike thats a bit of a disadvantge :o)
the location is more than great, the staff is nice and the rooms are great. the fact you had to pay extra for the fire place and that they charge 7.5 (!!!) euro for wire less internet.
Friendly personnel, with nice rooms and a good atmosphere. Nice fresh products (from the farm). A nice place to be.
Staff people The bed was "double bed" but it had two mattress, therefore it was not confortable
very friendly, good people, lovely local food , very rural but non the worse for that. good value for money, room was warm and cosy, not too fussy- just right.
The hotel was in an interesting area in the hills surrounding lake Como. However I feel that this hotel would have been better described as a working farm. Unfortunatley you get things that are associated with farms such as flies and other unwelcome noises and smells. However there was a good atmosphere with very helpful staff.
Rare location for disposal of hotel, very beautiful scenery, nice view, pretty wild place. Kind hosts, who served homemade and delicious food. Pleasant conditions in the hotel section. Very difficult access to the hotel, especially at night, a narrow road with many bends.
The view is very beautiful, the place is quiet and peaceful, breakfest is homemade and very good, the location is close to Como lake (about 10 minutes by car). The room is a bit small.
