Shabby Chic hotel, friendly staff, food ok. But what a location! Views out over the lake, boat terminal across the narrow road. Room are very clean, TV too small and no way to cast Netflix to it, as there are no English channels. Only 6 parking spaces so pre-booking parking is a must. Over all a pleasent place to stay,...

This is a family run hotel and very friendly. The decor is a little bit old fashioned but it's extremely clean and well cared for. Other half was too mean to stump up the extra € for a lake view but our room over the restaurant had an oblique one. There was air con and a TV in the room... More

This hotel has special memories for us. We honeymooned here nearly 20 years ago, and when we decided to come back to Lake Como for our wedding anniversary, there was nowhere else we wanted to stay. This is a small family run hotel, and the owner is very professional and welcoming. The hotel is impeccably clean with glass and metal... More

Enjoyed our stay on Lake Como very much! The hotel is a small, family owned hotel. We were in the family room, which was a great size for our family if four, including 2 teenagers. The rooms each had small balconies. The restaurant was lovely with delicious food and a gorgeous view. Breakfast was very tasty with a good selection.... More

This is a hotel near the water of Lake Como. Though photos look like it is on the water- there is a street and a decent space between the hotel and lake. There are good views of the lake if you're on the front end of the hotel. The hotel also has a restaurant that is pretty decent. The owners... More

Had eaten a few meals at Hotel Orso Bruno on our last trip to Lake Como and decided to stay for 4 nights with family. The hotel is situated right across the street from the ferry so no need to drive anywhere. The hotel is clean and the restaurant is wonderful. All the rooms have air conditioning and are very...

This is a small , boutique hotel with views of the lake, an extraordinary and eco minded staff, and a swimming beach. We were so happy here that we extended our stay!

I don't normally write reviews, but felt as this was such a small independent hotel that it would be worthwhile. To be honest I wasn't expecting much. A little, independent, European 3-star (so 2-star really)! However, I was so very pleasantly surprised. The room was excellent, the bathroom extremely modern. The staff courteous and friendly and the location absolutely perfect.... More

Having reviewed the Orso Bruno here before - we've just returned from our fifth,annual week-long stay, at this excellent family-run hotel. Located 30 metres from the lake shore, with extensive ferry links to Como, Cernobbio and elsewhere; the restaurant remains great value, with lots of fresh dishes and locally prepared specialities. Best to book a lake-facing room, on a higher... More

Breakfasts was very good too. Rooms are small but clean and simple. They have only several parking place so book it in... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
L'albergo lo scoprite dopo infinite curve dagli scorci sempre diversi ed emozionanti, arrivate accostando comodamente l’auto sul piazzale di fronte e scendendo vi accorgete dell’incantevole posizione di questo piccolo albergo che si specchia orgogliosamente nel lago ed è avvolto dal rassicurante abbraccio delle montagne. Se arrivate di mattina il colore predominante è azzurro dalle sfumature d’oro, il tramonto invece è rosa.Ad accogliervi troverete sempre noi e sempre un sorriso e dopo un celere check in potrete andare direttamente in camera o rilassarvi un attimo nel nostro bar o nel nostro salottino sbirciando attraverso le vetrate l’animata quotidianità che si svolge al di fuori. Dicono che non ci sia panorama più affascinante del lago visto dal lago e per i nostri clienti più curiosi l’imbarco della navigazione proprio di fronte l’albergo sarà un’ irrinunciabile comodità per una gita in battello. ... more   less
