Lake Como has been an escape from urban life for Italians since Roman times, but Enea Gandola took it one step further in 1910 by opening this, Como’s most palatial hotel.
It is one of the oldest and somptuous Hotels on Lake Como, with a rich tradition of luxury and impeccable services.
On the ground floor, the hotel plays to its traditional strengths with a series of salons and terraces facing the lake – and you’ll still find a billiard table and a library, while the reception rooms have been pepped up with furniture in striking sherbet colours.
Of the 98 rooms and suites, the most prestigious is the Greta – named after Ms Garbo – which has two bedrooms and a large terrace.
There are three swimming pools, including one on the lake surrounded by an artificial beach.
Unparalleled Italian dining experiences will make every day at the hotel seem like a celebration of refinement and good taste. Superstar chef Gualtiero Marchesi, who has three Michelin stars, oversees the main restaurant. So whether you choose to enjoy a snack by the pool, a traditional Pizza in the garden, or a romantic dinner at La Terrazza Resataurant, your gastronomic experience will definitely be a memorable one.
