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
it's a magic place, just perfect for intimate and luxury weddings.
Attention to details and passion of the people that work here create a incredible experience.
I can't wait to work here again.
One of the best places in Lake Como
This is a very old hotel and if you look closely you can see it is... That is why it’s so special.. we have been twice now. Once as a couple and once with family & friends as a present for a 50th.
The hotel, staff and of course the lake are as it has always been - world class 😎
This place is beautifully located and stunning. The building and the decor have so much history however it has been beautifully kept and the rooms to the reception are beautifully maintained and offer a perfectly relaxing and romantic getaway.
The staff are very friendly and a fantastic concierge.
Would HIGHLY recommend.
We would rate this hotel a 5 if the bathtub whirlpool system worked. It's a beautiful place with wonderful views of the lake area. Service is great with caring, considerate staff. The buffet in the morning is well stocked with the obligatory tacky guest picking the food from service tray to mouth - but oh well - the masses. They have a nice collection of movies if you can't find anything on the television to watch. It's quiet and romantic. But we visited in April when there was still snow in the mountains -- loved it. I imagine when the masses arrive later in Spring and Summer it can get more challenging, especially if you are an introvert. Wished the area had more cafes to visit, but that's fine. It's an expensive hotel.
Just stop looking af hotels in Bellagio and Varenna- they’re great but this place is everything. It’s so modern and chic but also has this cool vintage vibe with the decor and style and the staff is so beyond exceptional. We stayed at a fantastic hotel in Venice and Tuscany wine country and both didn’t hold a candle to the place. It’s beyond anything you can explain in a review or in pictures just go and you’ll see... enjoy the views, spa, gardens, the spacious rooms, poolside vibe (on lake como! Or private pool in back of hotel) food, drinks. The view of the lake towns is best from this hotel and you can take the ferry quickly to all little towns at all hours. The people that stayed there were so happy and friendly as if we were all in on this secret spot- oasis. Ha. It’s true though
