Score from 147 reviews Wonderful
we liked the small hotel, friendly, helpful staff, lovely room, with views of the lake, good restaurant, beautiful area.
The couple managing the hotel are genuinely nice. They spoke English fluently and were very helpful with advice on the transportation alternatives. Simply furnished but clean and neat. We had a room that one can look at the lake from lying in the bed!
Our usual complaint on the ubiquitous foam beds that get hot.
Room was wonderful, breakfasts delightful in a most attractive dining room with stunning lake views. Best Wifi in two weeks in Italy, very friendly and attentive hosts (yes they were consummate hosts, not staff)
Nothing not to like
Hotel Orso Bruno offers excellent value in Lake Como. The staff is friendly, professional, and speak excellent English. The rooms are clean and spacious and ours offered a balcony with superb views of the Lake. The breakfast included with the room rate provided a good variety and plenty to eat, although it was the same every morning. The on-site restaurant serves excellent food and has a very comprehensive menu offering everything from seafood to pizza. The location is away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist crowds in a very quiet and authentic town right on the Lake.
As mentioned, the town of Carate Urio is away from the tourist attractions on the lake. While this provided an opportunity to experience a "real" Lake Como village, it meant you had to drive to reach restaurants and major ferry stops. We had a car so this wasn't a problem, but if you do not have a car, you have to rely on the bus to get anyway. There is a ferry stop right outside the hotel, but stops are infrequent.
Beautiful location friendly and helpful owners
Bed was comfortable
Decor, facilities, food, closure of restaurant on Tuesday with no other convenient option in the area.
Excellent location and friendly helpful staff. Very good breakfast. Great pizzas in the restaurant.
The views from our balcony (room 202)were super. Samuele (owner) was extremely helpful in organising bike hire. The restaurant stayed open for us when we arrived late on the first evening which was greatly appreciated and the food was very good. Nice, large bathroom and well cleaned every day.
The room decor was a bit tired I guess and the bed didn't have a headboard which looked a bit odd. However this was a small price to pay for the fact it was cleaner than some of the 4* and 5* places I've stayed in and the views from the balcony were lovely.
While travelling with a small son, he does not take well to eating late and we generally eat early. The hotel's restaurant was very accomodating to bring up our food to our room so that we could feed our son quitely without giving him other distractions which greatly eased our needs.
When booking my stay at the Hotel Orso Bruno, I had booked a two room hotel room because I was travelling with small children and wanted a quite room for them to sleep in and a seperate room for us while they slept. On booking I had asked for a crib and was notified by the hotel staff that because the beds could not be moved from the one room, they recommended a better option that would permit cribs to be included. I expressed my concern about enough space to which I was assurred there would be plenty. On arrival, we got our room, which was a single room, with two cribs, and an adjoining washroom. Which, was a lovely room by any other means but there was not enough space for all of us and we were not able to put our son to sleep in a seperate room from us which is my biggest concern. What was more concerning is that we departed the hotel early the next morning because we realized that the accomodations were not suitable to our needs and that we really needed to shorten our vacation. To my disappointment, the hotel Orso Bruno preceeded to charge me for the entire two night stay none the less. This is troubling because I do believe they easily could have let the room that night to another traveller. To summerize, I am disappointed that I was not given a room that met my needs or enough space we required and secondly, I am disappointed the hotel proceeded to charge me for a full two nights intead of just one which I stayed and charged me for a quadruple room that I booked but providing me with only a double.
Good service Good restaurant Great view on the lake
The bathroom did a really strong and unpleasant noise when using. Maybe a bit too expensive.
The terrace is fantastic for both breakfast and dinner!
The location of this hotel is excellent with the dock directly across the street. All the staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. Our view was perfect of Lake Como and the dinner at the hotel restaurant was fantastic. Do not hesitate to book at this charming hotel.
The lady who (owns the place?) received us was very good, helpful and spoke excellent english Location was directly opposite the water taxi/boat so very easy to go and see other places around the lake Very good restaurant also
Antonia and Samuele were terrific hosts/owners. We checked in very late after a long drive from Zermatt. They made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. Instead of having us check it at first, we were welcomed to have dinner and then check in well past 11:00pm. The rooms were great with a wonderful terraced view of the lake. We would definitely stay here again if we are fortunate enough to get back to Lake Como.
Everything was terrific. A suggestion would be to offer down pillows.
Great value for the money
Very friendly & professional staff, good room, beautiful location, good (small) wine list, excellent breakfast.
Red wines served would benefit from a wine-fridge (particularly in summer).
What's not to like? We have never been so completely satisfied with a hotel stay! The couple who own and operate Orso Bruno could not be more delightful, professional and helpful. They run a very nice little restaurant on site as well. We had one of the lake view balcony rooms. It was perfect!
We don't travel that much but enough to know a very good thing when we've found it. It is rare when there is nothing negative to say about a travel experience but that is the case with Hotel Orso Bruno. We are surprised to read that the average review score is only 8.5. Based on our experience it should be 10!!
Lovely small and friendly family run hotel. Nice room with small balcony and view over lake Como, good well equipped bathroom.. Our first holiday without a car, a good move as roads are narrow, parking can be a problem but with lake boats and a bus stop outside the front door getting about was easy. Meals were good and varied with also a wide range of good reasonably priced pizzas. A super plus, on our 50th wedding anniversary we were presented with a home made strawberry gateaux for our dinner sweet- scrummy! A lovely touch.
This is a well-run and well-maintained three star hotel located on Lake Como. The husband and wife owners are attentive, friendly, and made us feel very welcome. Our room with windows looking on to the lake was spacious and comfortable with all modern features. The buffet breakfast was wonderful with home-made baked goods. Dinner in the restaurant was very good both evenings we dined there.
Friendliness of service
The hotel is lovely. It is one the water and has a beautiful view! There is a very nice glass restaurant for fine dinning across the street and the hotel has a lovely resturant, bar & pizzeria. It is adorable for travelers looking for a nice place to stay. The room was very large and very safe. The parking was available and secure. The staff was most friendly and welcoming. We came from the USA and landed in the morning, they checked us in early and were extremely accommodating. The elevator is great for luggage and again the staff was so kind at breakfast and checkin. Defiantly a great place to stay!
The location is fantastic and everything was done to make us as comfortable as possible. We had a lake view room. Well worth the extra!
We really enjoyed the simplicity, size and charm of the hotel. The breakfasts were delightful with wonderful baked goods. Everyone we met was sweet, helpful and welcomed our dog, Ella.
