This hotel in Brunate is perched high on the cliff overlooking Lake Como. Our room had a fabulous view over the lake and city. The hotel is about 2400 feet above Como with a hair-raising drive through narrow winding roads up to Brunate. There is a funicular beside the hotel which, unfortunately, was not operating during our stay. However, there is a bus that runs to Como every 30 minutes. It is expected that the funicular will be back in operation within the next 3-4 weeks. The restaurant is great - not many choices, but the food was excellent. Breakfasts also were very good. The rooms are really well decorated with the use of glass, mirrors and painted frieze work. We really liked this hotel.
"Exceeded expectations and very pleasantly quaint"
With a need to stay near the Swiss boarder and Como on business I had a quick search for a functional hotel. I had no idea the hotel was perched three quarters of the way up a mountain, overlooking Como, but was smiling all the way to the hotel. The location is very accessible to Como and absolutely idyllic. The hotel is a small privately run affair with a busy bar. My room was clean, comfortable and had doors opening on to a small veranda. The staff were very friendly and excused my poor Italian. Breakfast was excellent. I would certainly stay there again and would have to hesitation recommending the hotel at €50 a night.

We stayed two Nights. Personal is really friendly and the rooms are clean. Breakfast also exceeded our expectations. the village is quite and nice with a lot of nature around. Como is reachable by public transportation in 7 minutes. overall a good deal for the money..
Fisrt, I need to let you know that it pays to research places a little more than I did with this hotel. Because I failed to do this, I didn't realise that the taxi ride (and the gouging taxi drivers) would be so expensive. But it didn't need to be; I just failed to research it.
As for the hotel, I was welcomed by a young an who was expecting me. He gave me excellent service and even provided me a meal at a good price when I realised that the local restaurants closed a little early... at that time of year anyway.
The view goes without saying; it's drop-dead gorgeous.
The hotel owner has excellent friendly staff working for him and he is also very hands on too. He provided me with a ride to the funicolare (look that up, it is essential you use that cable car in Brunate) with my very heavy suitcase.
The room was clean and cleaned each day. The net connection fast and reliable. The breakfast also excellent.
The rate was very good value too.
I was on my own, but I can imagine this being an ideal place for a very romantic getaway for a few days.
The only (very minor for me) negative is that the pool needs attending to, although I suspect the owner will have this fully sorted by the summer.
Overall, an excellent stay and I would thoroughly recommend this hotel. just be prepared for the walk frmo Brunate to the hotel, but I believe the hotel will provide a ride to the hotel from the funicolare.

Love the place which is clean and artistic. The hostess is friendly and social and willing to help. The view from the B&B is magnificent.
We had a great time and definitely will be back if there is a chance to go back!
