Historical Traveler Reviews Metropole Suisse Hotel Como
Breathtaking views from this charming hotel. Excellent location allowed us easy access to everything we needed. Staff was knowledgable and very helpful. Great value for the price.
Great service and family hotel
had 5 days recently at this lake side hotel and the service daily from all of the staff excellent whch added to this unique location overlooking the lake.
not only was the hotal and staff friendly but also the catering staff and so with the good location for trains transport and the local shops and facilitie then this is a place to go not just in the summer but out of that season as we did. good base for exploring other areas and even wothout a csar the good value trains and buses make it good as well
As I say not a large hotel but a relatively small family facilty with the benefits that you would expect
A fantastic location overlooking the lake and close to the charming town. We stayed for a short break in beautiful late winter days and the hotel provided a great base for seeing this magnificent area. The hotel itself has undergone some renovation and was exceedingly good value.
The catering staff were excellent and went out of their way to be helpful and attentive.
DO NOT STAY HERE!!!! This is a dump.
I just returned a week ago from 2 weeks in Italy and this hotel was the worst!! It's rated as a 4 star hotel, and should be a 2 star. The rooms were tiny and very poorly furnished. Our bathroom did not have a shower, only a hand held shower wand in the tiniest bathtub you've ever seen...and not even a shower curtain around it. Taking a shower meant the floor was totally soaked and a real hazard. We had a "view" of an alley, and the rates were not cheap. Other guests that we chatted with over breakfast were also complaining and said they were going to write letters of complaint when they returned home. One of the comments heard several times, was that the people on the desk acted like you were bothering them if you asked a simple question. I've stayed in a Motel 6 that was more comfortable.
This hotel has a great location, right on the lake front and next to the main square, Piazza Cavour. Try booking through the consolidator website, www.supranational.com We saved 40% on the rate the hotel was asking. Rooms are rather dated but clean and reasonably spacious. Ask for a balcony - it's lovely to sit outside and watch the activity on the lake. For the price, this hotel is recommended.
Do Not Stay Here
While the hotel itself is nice, and location is great, I would not recommend this hotel. The maid and housekeeping staff are thieves. On Saturday, May 27, 2003, my spouse accidentally left a diamond and sapphire ring in the bathroom after a shower and getting dressed for the day. We discovered this after leaving the hotel for the day, and when we returned the ring was gone. Yes, it should have been either worn, or locked up in the safe, but it was accidentally left out in a rush to get to a scheduled tour departure. The staff and management did absolutely nothing to try to find the culprit of the crime, only blaming us for leaving the ring out on the bathroom counter. Other than that, the hotel was wonderful, but based upon this experience, I would not return to this facility.

Hello friends and family
We are not sure if you have received my blog from Cinque Terra. I really hope so as it all seems far away now we are in a totally different part of Italy and far from there now. It was an amazing journey and like nothing we have ever seen. Our day taking a train and boat along the coast was beautiful and breath taking …
... takes us over the road to place to educate us in the Italian way of ordering a drink at dinner time and getting a feed off the bar from the beautiful finger food they have kindly put out for you while you eat. Calamari, olives, breads, pastas and much more. It is amazing that this array of food is put out for anyone who is drinking. While being polite with Jenn and Don as the dinner the girls have prepared is waiting for us, we head home to enjoy a night of good food and ...
Now where are all my party people?! In the city of Milan, Italy, the night does not begin
until about 1 am. Back in Canada if someone is awake later than
midnight, it is likely they are either in bed watching a movie with a
bag of chips or bowl of ice cream (all you ladies, you know what i am
talking about. We have alllll been there so please save the trouble
of denying it!), or selling drugs in dark ...
... State School! Once the paperwork was done, he ushered us into a recently returned car and personally drove us to the car depot some 10mins away and got us into our fresh car! Talk about a small world! It took us just over an hour to get to our first destination, Bussolengo, where we enjoyed seeing my uncle and aunt and having a precious and delicious home cooked lunch! I say precious because when travelling for a while, a home cooked meal is simply awesome! As time was getting on, it ...
... people in at a time for a maximum of 15 minutes. The amazing thing about this artwork is that during the second world war the entire building was destroyed in a bombing, except for the one wall with the painting on. They have now rebuilt around it and created a high tech temperature controlled room to keep it safe from decay.
