We took a trip on the funicular railway from Como to the village of Brunate at the very top of the hill. We wanted a coffee where we could enjoy the views. Most places were closed for Easter. I spotted the perfect raised terrace with tables above a hotel. Roberto the hotel owner explained that he had just arrived for... More

Firstly contratary to what I was led to believe the only actual parking is 1.3 Kms away, the owner will assist with a lift there if he is able but otherwise it's a long walk back. The hotel is clearly struggling, the water in the bathroom taps came out brown initially, the heating took 3 hours to warm up. The... More

After a trip up the Furnicular , then a hike to the volta light house you will need a cold beer . Drop into the vista lago brunate see Roberto and get a Angelo Poretti Double malt beer , but be warned ... It's 6.5% ! There is the red version as well but this is 7% !

The hotel is affordable and has nice rooms with a wonderful view of Como, the lake and some Swizz alps in the horizon. Brunate is a beatiful Italian small village, that is worth visiting. The service was good, and the staff was very friendly.

We stayed overnight at Vista Lago on a whim this week on our night in Italy. We had been at Lake Garda at our friends' house, but we need accommodations closer to Malpensa for an early morning flight. We found Vista Lago after a curvy drive to the top of the mountain, and the view was spectacular! The proprietor of... More

I understood that the hotel has a new owner. He was kind and caring and served us pretty fine breakfast every morning. Rest of the time the public spaces (etc lobby, restaurant) were closed. A little bit strange was that the cleaning lady went our room despite the sign "do not disturb". She took away all our soda and water... More

My wife and I stayed here for two days in April 2013. We learned that the Owners had recently remodeled/upgraded the hotel. We were not disappointed. The location is perfect within walking distance of the Funicular and a focal point for the hiking trails. The view of Lake Como from our balcony was beautiful. The Owner were extremely kind. We...

This was our second visit in the last 3 years, and despite change of ownership this hotel remains an absolute gem. The views are just superb, you can see pretty much all of Como and the alps.

The view from this hotel is fabulous and something I didn't think possible with a low budget. You can see the whole city of Como and the lake and mountains. The free breakfast was so good! Fresh warm crossiants and the best cheese. The restaurant seems to be family run, the cook being like the "typical Italian mother." That being... More
