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
Stayed here for a couple of nights with my wife. It is probably the most impressive hotel I have ever stayed in. Old world charm and luxury set of the banks of lake como. Staff were lovely, room was immaculate. Breakfast on the terrace overlooking the lake is a must as is the pool in the lake. Also loved the pool and hot tub in the spa which also look out over the lake. Just amazing. Hopefully return sometime!!!!!
This hotel is stunning. The pool, floating on the lake, is beautiful and fun. They have a very chic pool bar as well. The hotel rooms are regal- we had one overlooking the lake and it was worth it. Looking out at that scene is breathtaking. They also have a great pool in the mountain as well that’s more kid friendly with good pizza. We also did the private boat hotel boat tour around the lake, and that was so much fun! A very pretty boat. Also- the hotel is right near the ferry to different towns so it’s easy to get around (and you don’t have the pay to take water taxis to get everywhere). I dream of this hotel! Heaven.
we have been three times to this stunning hotel in Tremezzo. Two times we had lake view rooms and once a room with no view on the first floor which probably was the “worst room” in the hotel since we booked almost the same day. Still the experience was mesmerising. the fine cusine restaurant is very good and has a bit of romantic atmosphere. there are other two casual restaurants including a pizzeria close by one of the two amazing outdoor swimming pools. one has even a beach lido club. the service is impeccable and the management (including family which owns the hotel) is vey attentive to the needs of the clients. the spa is well sized and enjoys beatutiful view of the lake. the indoor pool is cosy and just in front of the lake as well. the hall is grandieuse . we felt pampered everytime we went and always had the sensation of the first time surprise. spa service are very good as well. we also had activities including renting the wooden motorboat of the hotel to discover the surrounding from the lake. we will be back 100pc. i have been to few of the majestic belle epoque hotels in lake Como but so far this one remains my favourite indeed. ps. i believe that October is the magic season to enjoy the lake and this hotel
I hope to be back there very soon. Such a beautiful place, impeccable service.. Breakfast i guess like it will be in heaven. We really recommend this place to everyone who is traveling around the area. We hope to back very soon!
What an amazing place to stay. Everything was exquisite. The view over the lake from the balcony in our room is something that will remain in my memory forever. The staff are extremely professional and friendly and breakfast in the terrace overlooking the lake is a wonderful way to start the day. The most magical place I have ever stayed. Will hopefully be back some day.
