6/10 Good

Beautiful view
The owners are very friendly and courteous. The rooms are rather simple but they have gorgeous views on the mountains and the lake of Como because the hotel lies above Brunate which lies above Como. Excellent starting point to do walks and hiking. Good bring and fetch service - free of charge - to the furnicular between Brunate and Como.

think twice before booking this hotel
the hotel is located on the very top of the mountain and it was real mission to drive up there. though the view was indeed very nice. the room was very basic and had no bathroom/wc. you have to share them with other guests on the hallway. the walls was so thin that we could hear everything what the next room was doing...the wooden floor was cracking so loud from every footsteps. I wouldn´t come back to this hotel.

8/10 Very good

Beautiful and hospitable, if out of the way.
This hotel is in such a beautiful location, and the proprietors so helpful and welcoming, that we decided to extend our stay. Its view is worth every penny, and inexpensive home-cooked meals are available. You should be advised that it is at the top of a mountain, and is not a convenient base for access to the city of Como. But if you want a quiet place to stay, it is a gem.

A lovely place to stay
We arrived at the Capanna after having driven down from Holland the same morning, and got rather lost on the incredibly narrow and windy road up to Brunate. At one point we got so stuck we didn't think there was any option other than to reverse the car all the way up a single track road. We finally arrived at about 10.30pm, the owner was very smiley and welcoming, and made us some sandwiches as we were so hungry. Our room was very clean and cosy, the toilet opposite our room and the shower at the end of the corridoor were exceptionally clean. Breakfast was of the same standard as our 4 star Rome hotel - a good selection of pastries, toast, jams and nuttella, juice and coffee or hot chocolate and cheese and meats - very nice. A very lovely view of Lake Como from the outside seating area. We would highly reccommend the Capanna - just be well prepared for the drive up there!!

Perfect for Alpine hiking
The hotel is quite basic but extremely clean- new showers and the rooms are cleaned everyday. The couple who runs the hotel are such nice people and they pampered to all our fancies. The breakfast is hearty with plenty of freshly made coffee, juice, croissants, fresh bread, cheese and ham (yum!), and jam and honey. The location of the B&B is one of the best on the lake or one of the worst - depending on what you are after. They are perched on the very top of the mountain that towers over Como. You get absolutely stunning views of the lake and it is so peaceful up there. The location is perfect if you want to do some hiking as there are hiking paths leading right from the hotel across the peaks all the way to Bellaggio. Having extolled the views and the peace you get up in Brunate, I have to mention the extremely windy and extremely narrow road that leads up there. If you're planning on staying up in Brunate for most of your stay than this isn't a problem, but if you, like us, have a car and want to explore the lake, you have to take into acount 1/2 hr spent going down and then up the mountain. The Lonely Planet guide says that once you've driven from Como to Bellagio, you can drive anywhere in the world. Well, they obviously hadn't driven up to Brunate. The drive to Bellagio is really quite easy in comparison with the Brunate climb. But I have to say it gets easier everyday as you get used to the roads. My boyfriend was driving like an Italian at the end of the holidays:)

2/10 Poor

sehr dreckiges hotel
das hotel sieht in der realitãt ganz anders aus als auf den fotos der homepage. es war sehr schmuddelig und dreckig. das zimmer nicht geputzt und im lavabo hatte es haare und mäusedreck, kleine esswaren usw von den früheren gästen. das bett war nicht frisch bezogen und das wurde trotz nachfrage unsererseits auch nicht in betracht gezogen. (im gegenteil wurde behauptet es sei bereits frisch bezogen) sobald der wasserhahn des wackligen lavabos betätigt wurde, überquoll das lavabo(abfluss verstopft). der aussenbereich war alt und verlottert und wenig einladend zum verweilen. der hotelmanager(besitzer) wirkte krank oder betrunken. er war zudem nicht freundlich. wir werden eine schriftliche beschwerde einreichen, damit die angaben im internet aktualisiert werden.
