Built in 1910 (and remaining open even through both world wars), the Grand Hotel Tremezzo is one of the best still-standing examples of Italian Art Nouveau architecture. To walk its stately halls and climb its grand staircases is to be transported to an era of glamour, when wealthy Europeans regularly roamed these halls at the turn of the last century. The 90 guest rooms are richly decorated in distinctive shades of yellow, blue and green, and they feature high ceilings, molded stucco, antique furniture and large bathrooms. The rest of the hotel is similarly decorated with opulent chandeliers, heavy, ornate drapes, a classic billiards room, fine crystal stemware in the dining rooms and large vases overflowing with flowers everywhere. But, remarkably, there’s nothing stuffy about the place. The exterior may look like a museum, but the interior is hardly quiet or snooty, and the staff is fun and friendly. During the summer months, Monday night pizza parties in the garden by the pool are a favorite among the guests, who munch on classic wood-oven Margherita pizzas by candlelight. For fine dining, you can head to La Terrazza, where the menu changes with the season to make the most of local produce and fresh fish. And tucked away downstairs is L’Escale, a classic fondue establishment set in a wine cellar. The outdoor spaces are equally magnificent, including a beautifully maintained two-acre park and even a manmade beach, right on the lakeshore, where you can kick back on a chaise longue under the sun.
How to Get There
Disappointed. Price does not always guarantee quality!
After having stayed in previous years, I returned with my Fiancé to an upgraded corner lakefront room. ( 2000$$ US PER NIGHT). Problems with having room cleaned problems with late night noise ( after midnight) just one thing after another..
given a choice I would not return to this property. Not what it used to be
Came here for four days to celebrate my wife's birthday. The staff was eager to help and as friendly as they could be. The rooms were well appointed and comfortable with all the amenities you'd expect in a 5 star hotel. We upgraded to a lake view room which, while nice, was actually smaller than our friends room across the hall. So keep that in mind. Nothing was cheap, but cheaper meals and supplies are available all around the area. The location was great for mid lake attractions. Lastly, the included breakfast buffet in the morning was superb. Can't recommend this place enough and if we're ever fortunate to return, there's no question where we'll go.
Stay here if you want your trip to Lake Como to be exceptional. Great staff and service from parking cars, travel advice, food and transfers. Amazing water view rooms on the lake side and an atmosphere of opulence. Breakfast is amazing!!!
