Hotel and B&B in Lake Como
Before you start looking for Lake Como hotels, here are some things to consider.
When are you visiting: Many Lake Como hotels close during the low season and are only open between April and October – November. Many restaurants and shops in smaller towns might be closed too. If traveling in low season, it’s probably best to just stay in Como town.
How long are you staying in Lake Como: If it’s just a short visit, you may want to stay in town with the best transport connections. Whereas if you are at Lake Como for a holiday, you may want to stay in a quieter place by the water and look for a hotel with a swimming pool.
Which places are you planning to visit and how (by car or by boat). If you are planning to do lots of sightseeing by boat, staying in the middle part of the lake (Bellagio, Varenna, Menaggio) will make it easier to commute every day. You may want to take a look at the Lake Como Boat Map to get a better idea of how Lake Como commute looks like. If you are driving, you may want to stay at different hotels along Lake Como (make sure they have parking!) in order to avoid driving up and down all the time.
Are you driving to Lake Como or are you coming by train? If you are arriving by car, you can stay pretty much anywhere, as long as there isparking. Whereas traveling by train, you probably best stay in one of the towns that have a train station.
Now, let’s take a look at the best towns to stay in Lake Como and the best Lake:
Como: is a destination in itself, but it’s also a good base for exploring Lake Como. Because it’s a bigger town, Como is somewhat cheaper to stay in than many of the other towns along Lake Como. It also tends to offer less expensive dining options. So it’s a good choice if you’re traveling on a budget. Transport connections are good, but the town is located at the far end of the lake, which means that it might take you several hours to get to some of the main sights of Lake Como.
Cernobbio: offers you the best of both worlds when you visit Lake Como. It is close enough to Como town to enjoy all the attractions that it has to offer. At the same time, Cernobbio is far away enough from the bustle of Como to have a unique charm all of its own. In general, accommodation prices are somewhat lower in Cernobbio than in Como. Furthermore, this small town has a good boat connection and is also served by Como taxis. So if you miss your ferry or bus back to Cernobbio, you will still be able to get back to your accommodation easily.
Bellagio: Bellagio itself is quite small and it’s not as easily accessible as Como or Cernobbio, but once you get there, its location is perfect for sightseeing. This is the main reason why I list Bellagio as one of the best places to stay in Lake Como. Set right in the middle, at the point where Lake Como splits (the lake has a reversed Y shape), Bellagio is an ideal place from which to explore the entire area. A good network of passenger and car ferries provide easy access to all the other towns and villages of Lake Como.
Tremezzina: The area is ideal for walkers, with easy access to the beautiful Greenway del Lago di Como. This 10.5 km walkway from Colonno to Cadenabbia brings you across gorgeous villas, Roman findings, charming restaurants, and breathtaking views. A car ferry connects Griante to both Bellagio and Varenna. While smaller places like Lenno or Tremezzina are served by the Centre Lake shuttle ferry and the high-speed hydrofoil.
