Hidden Gem - Hotel Silvio A review of Hotel Silvio
If you are looking for a place to stay in Lake Como, we would highly recommend Hotel Silvio. The same family has run this hotel for 4 generations. They continue to take pride in running the hotel and ensuring that their guests have an enjoyable, relaxing stay. When we arrived, we had trouble locating a taxi. Upon calling Elena, she cheerfully said that she would come pick us up. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The bathroom was also very clean, with a hairdryer and a phenomenal shower! We had a balcony with a view of a church and the lake. We stayed for four nights and dined at the Hotel three of those nights (although we wish we would have dined all 4 at Silvio). Christian (part of the family) catches the fish himself every night. He then works in the restaurant for dinner, his suggestions on entrees and pairing of wines should be taken! The hotel is about a 15 - 30 min walk, depending on how fast you walk, from town.
All in all, we had a fabulous time and cannot wait to visit Hotel Silvio again!
