Modern rooms with good bathrooms. A bit small (we were in one of the cheapest rooms), but very clean. Good bed and pillows. Breakfast good and nice eating area. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel has a restaurant and there are two others within 5 minutes walk on the same level. We tried the Trattoria down the street and it was great! Nice cozy pool and wonderful views of Lake Como from the patio both day and night. You can pay to park, or there is a public lot about 80 yards away.
A bit difficult to get to as the streets are tight and up above Cernobbio, but well worth the effort. GPS got us there, although there are signs in town.
This was the best hotel experience we had in Italy. It is truly a beautiful location. And only 45 minutes from MXP airport!

"Beautiful location with easy access to Lake Como"
A most enjoyable weekend stay in this quiet, beautiful location away from the centre but with easy access to Cernobbio and Como. Sergio and the rest of the hotel staff were very friendly,helpful and accommodating from the outset e.g. agreeing arrangements for a late night return. The Superior rooms were nicely furnished, WIFI connected easily and we slept well in the relaxing setting. The breakfast was excellent and our one regret was that we weren't able to try the highly rated restaurant because of family commitments elsewhere. Definitely worth a return visit.
Because this small older hotel does not have an elevator, we requested a room on a lower floor. Our room was on the third floor. Room was nice and breakfast was good.
Despite the third floor room, we would come here again.
"Comfortable appartment, Beware of check in times"
We waited at a reastaurant to arrive within the short check in window. Nobody was there when we arrived. We had to call and wait 15 minutes. They said they send me an email asking for arrival time. I never received. Instructions indicate to call if you plan to arrive after 6 PM. The fact is, you need to call to schedule your check in because these are appartments and there is no desk. Other than that the appartment was good, it had a kitchinet and a washer machine (no dryer, shame we got wet under the rain and had no way to dry our clothes).
The other issue was the swimming pool. They include a swimming pool picture and we thought it was part of the facility. The pool is by the beach, a few blocks away from the appartment. This is not a service included in the rental.
It is a historical hotel with a great past. However, it is an overvalued operation. Outdoors are beautiful. Interiors are not exciting. The room we stayed looked cold; we felt cold. General indoors areas were not enough; did not have enough seating. We enjoyed food at the main restaurant and the Grill. Personnel is friendly; they know ehat they are doing. However, I do not think it is a money well spent.
Wonderful location on the shores of Lake Como.Only 50 minutes from Milan Malpensa International Airport and 1 hour from Milan …More
Overlooked by Monte Bisbino, this steamer point on Como’s southerly shores has an attractive old quarter, but is principally famed for the ultra-grand Villa d’Este, a celebrity haunt with a chequered and colourful history. Built in the early 17th century, it is now a luxury hotel full of marble staircases and priceless antiques. The elaborate gardens sweep down to a raised swimming pool above the lake, amid folly temples, forts and pavilions.
