A note from Hotel Orso Bruno
Updated 06/05/20


Travellers' Choice
Hotel Orso Bruno is located on the most romantic shore of Lake Como, right in front of the boat dock, an intimate and familiar environment, where our 10 rooms express all our passion for hospitality. Our hotel is in the heart of a truly rich area from a historical, artistic and naturalistic point of view, and it is an excellent choice for a holiday in the name of discovery. You'll get the tranquility of Lake Como just two steps away from the main towns. Our Hotel is easy to reach by car, boat and bus (which stops in front of the hotel) and very close to Como, Bellagio, Varenna, Villa Carlotta and many others highlights. Our ten rooms totally renovated in march 2019 are all cosy and elegant: we know that after a day spent outdoors all you really need is relaxation, welcoming space and comfortable beds. And if you want to add a touch of class to your stay, book a room with a view. We also love to pampering our hotel guests at our restaurant pizzeria with genuine and traditional dishes

This is such a lovely and great hotel to stay while visiting magnificent Lake Como. The owners are so kind and hardworking, staff are lovely and competent, breakfast is superb, so is the coffee. The restaurant has a great menu and nice wines. And in a couple of steps you are by the lake, where there is an wine bar, and the ferry stop Urio. Walk max 5 minutes and there is a private beach with bar that guests of the hotel enter for free.

The hotel is in a small village near a bar/cafe and the Acquadolce restaurant. Only three parking places for cars. The staff is very nice. We visited it in time of CoVid so the restaurant was closed but we had all the necessary for breakfast in the bedroom and were upgraded with a room with balcony. Perfect location for a short stay.

Some would call it a boutique hotel, we call it an Italian hotel with charm. We like the setting right by the jetty. Makes it so easy to explore the lake. Only issue is that boats back from Como, as they stop running after 20.00. But we had a nice quiet room, beds comfortable and clean room and bathroom. Best is that the rooms are having aircon, well needed in the summer. Breakfast in the next door restaurant good with a great view ( if you get table by the window). The local lido is just a walk away and easy to spend a nice day by the lake. The car park infront of Hotel a further plus. So, we will be back.
