Paolo and his family provided us with the best stay. The villa has excellent location, comfortable facilities, the pool has a magnificent view to the lake and service is great! It has become our address in Lake Como. No need to look further!
Built in the mid-19th century as summer residence on the western shore of lake Como in Cadenabbia, the Villa "La Mirabella" …More
As soon as we arrived, Paola greeted us to sit on the lake shore patio with a glass of wine and some cheese. She is a marvelous host and made an exceptional stay in Lake Como extra special. The town of Griante, where the hotel is located is very convenient with a picturesque short 2-300 yard walk to the ferries to Bellagio, Varano and Menaggio. We had a car so we drove to Como. Free hotel parking is available across the street. If you are not use to driving on the narrow streets of Italy; It is a harrowing experience. There are some restaurants to walk to near the hotel. My wife really enjoyed the dinner at the hotel Alberghetto La Marianna restaurant, I did not wish to eat dinner there a second time but that is personal choice. Also the menu has only one but changing daily fixed dinner choice on the menu. The excellent breakfast had scrambled eggs offered as well as yogurt, cereal, meat, cheese, fresh fruit, juice, jams and pastry.
We were in Lake Como area late September, some lake activities were not available.
ONE IMPORTANT MESSAGE if you are driving to the hotel from the north or southeast using a GPS make sure to check the NO FERRIES option OR you will be on the wrong side of the lake needing to take a car ferry

My husband & I really enjoyed this hotel. Our room had a lovely balcony overlooking the gorgeous pool and the town Varenna across Lake Como. It was enjoyable to listen to the band playing in the evenings by the pool. Our room was very clean and had excellent bedding. The breakfast buffet was very good and had many choices. This hotel was in walking distance to Villa Carlotta, so great location. We took the boat to visit other towns on the lake. It rained but we were prepared with poncho's and umbrellas. Lake Como is beautiful in all weather conditions! We hope to return to this hotel in the future!
Having read previous reviews, we were fearing the worst. However, we were pleasantly surprised by our large two-level family room with spectacular views over to Bellagio. Our kids loved breakfasts and the afternoons spent watching the sunset from the bar on the fourth floor. Overall, we had a superb stay and can highly recommend the nearby restaurant Rodrigo's.

A Family run hotel that looks over the lake, the food was good, breakfast was typical continental, but the evening meal was a delight, but closed Tuesdays. The hotel was only a few yards from the ferry terminal and ferries ran fairly frequently around the lake. One tip I was given, having hired a car from Milan, was to take the ferry to Bellagio and go to Milan from there. A much better journey than coming from Como
