Away from the crowds A review of Hotel Silvio
We stayed a few nights at Hotel Silvio in May 2003... and were generally happy with the visit. The location on the lakeside gave great views from the large dining room windows.... I couldn't see the lake from my bedroom on the side of the building unless I leaned out of the window, but if you had a lakeside room it would be great.
Not sure about the other reviews... but I definitely remember having a menu available in the restaurant ... and the food was good (but no pizza).
Yes, we too walked uphill from the ferry stop to the hotel, which I wouldn't recommend with luggage, and there's no pavement in places... and taxi would only cost about 5-10 Euros. The same (10-15mins) walk without luggage was very pleasant though.
There's a bus stop right outside the hotel and we caught a bus to Como one day (scenic route, but scary road experience, and glad I wasn't driving).
