Certificate of Excellence
Majestic and prestigious, the Palace Hotel faces the lakefront and perfectly combines the Liberty style of its main building "Plinius" with the classic lines of the "Pianella" wing; two styles, yet one soul defining the Palace and its history, making this property unique. The hotel features 94 rooms - the majority of which completely renovated - and common areas where the elegant atmosphere of the art deco blends with the modern facilities of the highest standards.

room is great but feels like it would need soon a renovation job. wood furniture and rugs are starting to show heavy ware. Not sure how the word "Palace" is relevant anymore. Unless you are ok with leftover broom and cleaning materials spread over the hallways, some 1970s

Dear guest, Thank you for your review. Apologies if we were unable to meet your expectations. We normally pride ourselves on the excellent comments we receive about our hotel, especially for breakfast. Every 4-star hotels have set times for the breakfast service. Should guests arrive later than the closing time, we happily accomodate them at the bar and provide a full breakfast. I am happy to announce that the wing of the hotel you stayed in will be completely renovated this coming winter, bringing the total count to 94 new rooms. I hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back to the Palace in the future. Next time I am confident that we will exceed your expectations! Kind regards. Robert Webber GM

Rooms have just been upgraded everything was so clean fresh & new. The reason i’m Only giving 4 stars is NO POOL & water pressure in showers is very low. I have long hair & decided I would not be able to wash as pressure is so low

I must preface my review with the information that it was my travel companion's last minute decision to stay at this hotel and that he picked it based on the average TripAdvisor review + the cost + its location near the lake front and without much comparison research. And the

Stayed for two nights in late November with friends. Views of the lake from our window/balcony were spectacular. Older hotel but well maintained. The breakfast provided could offer more choices for a luxury hotel. Great location in the small town of Como - close to restaurants,

Dear Noreen, if the airport is Milan Malpensa (MXP) we can suggest the train as the station is just 200 meters from the hotel. Travel time is 1 hour 15 minutes. Bear in mind that you must switch trains in the station of Saronno. This could be hectic with children and luggage. With a driver (that the hotel can arrange), travel time is 45 minutes and obviously more comfortable. The rate is proportionally higher by car. Please send us a mail with full flight details on our "info" address if interested in arranging a driver. We will send you a quotation. Kind regards, Palace Hotel

"Pay extra for a balcony."
"request a lake view.."
"Front facing to get view of the Lake although back rooms look out onto a nice square lined with trees"
"The Pianella wing is the more economic wing, but very clean and quiet"
"Always opt for a lake view room - more expensive but definitely worth it."
US$128 - US$352 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
