Poor hotel

Posted 10-Apr-2016 on Hotels
There was some chemical odour in our room, even the open windows didn't help. The view is beautiful, but the road is under hotel Windows, so it's very noisy. Breakfast buffet is very poor.

Quite, clean and romantic place

The hotel is near the lake. Make sure you have a proper navigation to get to the hotel. Our navigation system wasn't able to find the given street name. It took us quite a time to get there.

Overnight stop Lake Como Hotel Orso Bruno

Posted 09-Aug-2015 on Hotels
We stayed at Hotel Orso Bruno for one night while travelling through Italy. Asked for a room with a view of Lake Como, which we did have, although a very small view as the Hotel is not lakeside but across the narrow road and there are buildings opposite. The roads around Lake Como are very narrow and busy,there are only a few touristy spots along the road. Where Hotel Orso Bruno is situated there is not much else around. Parking for around 3 cars is available opposite the hotel,and is chargeable, but reception told us that there is free public parking, not sure where that is though. The Hotel restaurant serves mainly pizza and pasta dishes,there is a cafe underneath the restaurant.The staff were friendly and the room clean and comfortable. I would not like to stay more than one or two nights due to the position of the hotel.No drinks making facilities in the room.

Cozy family run hotel on Lake Como

Posted 12-May-2015
We loved our stay at Hotel Orso Bruno. It's run by a sweet couple who were very helpful. The staff were responsive and attentive and the breakfast buffet was well stocked. One thing we loved was that immediately outside the front door lay a bus stop and the water taxi pier. This made getting around, up and down the lake and to Como, really easy. Also, along the hillside above the hotel lay a neighborhood of small summer cottages accessible, essentially, only on foot. We hiked up the cobbled walkway through the charming neighborhood quite a ways up the hillside and eventually passed all the cottages onto a slope of terraces at the top of which was a small sanctuary/church. The views across, and up and down the lake were stunning at dawn. Would definitely stay at this hotel again. -Richard

Loved it

If you're looking for nightlife and shopping, this is not your place. If you're looking for a peaceful lake experience - it would be hard to beat the Orso Bruno! Easy access to Como by either bus or boat ( the stop is across the street) , and good food in the restaurant . Family owned and run, great service and clean well appointed rooms. If we ever get back to Lago Como, this would be my first choice!

Lovely owners, very sweet hotel!

Posted 28-Apr-2014 on Hotels
We were given a warm welcome. The owners are a friendly young couple and the hotel was perfect for our needs. The room was spacious and comfortable and the hotel is situated right next to the ferry stop which is convenient. The area is very quiet which is lovely for relaxing thought the difficulty at lake como is, unless you are at a restaurant, it's hard to find a place just to sit and enjoy the lake so it becomes very expensive. The hotel however suited our needs very well. Thank you!

Great Stay!

Posted 11-Sep-2013 on Hotels
This hotel is not in a town that has a lot of nightlife but if you're looking for some peace and quiet and a home base to visit other towns, this place is perfect. The owners, Antonia and Samuel were very helpful in finding our way to the other towns on the lake. There is a ferry that stops directly across from the hotel. The hotel restaurant has good food at reasonable prices. There is another restaurant across from the hotel but we did not try it. We had room 204 which was very clean and good size. . The bathroom was nicely finished and good size also. It has a shower that is much bigger than most European hotel showers. The balcony looks over the lake and was nice to sit and watch people go by.

Beware of location

Posted 06-Aug-2013 on Hotels
If you do not have a car I would advise you to avoid this hotel as the bus and boat services are limited. The hotel also kept providing us with misinformation which was frustrating and disappointing.

Beautiful and accomodating

What an amazing hotel, ran by an amazing couple. Too short of a stay, we will soon be back for a longer weekend for sure. Food was great at the hotel restaurant. We were even given passes to the local swimming area where we laid out. highly recommended.
