Nested in a beautiful green private park on the shore of Lake Como, the Sheraton is the perfect place for everyone looking for a peaceful and luxurious hotel near the city center of Como.
The experience starts as soon as you pass by the entrance. The staff demontrates a perfect sense of hospitality when welcoming you and you can only be in a hurry to discover the cosy cocoon on which you will stay for a few days.
The property proposes different types of room such as the Deluxe Room with its king-size bed overviewing the mountains and the pool from the window front or the Terrace Guest Room including its private terrace with sunbeds to enjoy the sun.
I chose the 1 Bedroom Suite with terrace and I can easily say that this room lived up all my expectations! When opening the door, I entered directly in the living room, it is bright and spacious and comprise a dining area as well as a setting area with a high quality flat screen television and a cosy sofa. As someone who enjoy writing everywhere I go, I was very pleased to a find a huge desk on which I could work and prepare some tea and coffee on the morning. The bedroom has a king-size bed, a flat screen and a little balcony. The room features a roomy marble bathroom with separate tub and walk-in shower. In my opinion the real plus of the suite is the huge terrace with a dominant view on the mountain.
The first storey is where you will take your breakfast each morning, unless you prefer it to be deliver directly in your room (my guilty pleasure…). The buffet offers a great selection of breads, pastries and pancakes as well as delicious italian charcuteries, cheeses and hot dishes! For the healthiest of us, a wide range of cereals, seeds, yoghurts and fruits! As for drinks, you will be proposed numerous fruit juices, teas and coffees. I especially enjoyed the juicer to make your own juice, a big glass of mixed apple, celery and ginger for me, yummy!
The Sheraton features a seasonal heated outdoor pool, free gym with cardio-training and weight training equipment and a wellness area. On the 1st floor of the hotel there are spaces on which you will be able to relax, reed the news and drink excellent cocktails at Bar Fresco.
Finally, if you are wondering where to eat, the hotel offers three restaurants. The first ones are Kincho, a grill restaurant next to the swimming pool and Gusto, an Italian restaurant on the first floor of the hotel.
Looking for something exquisite and special?
Then Kitchen Restaurant is your best option! Located in the middle of the park, a location with a convivial yet intimate atmosphere. Just in front of the entrance, a biodynamic garden created by the chef and on which vegetables and aromatic herbs are grown. The latests are used on the dishes of the menu, proposing an Italian cuisine with a modern approach using local products and paying attention to the raw materials.
My weekend at Lake Como was marvellous and if you have the luck to visit this beautiful region of Italy, I can only recommend you to book your room at The Sheraton to sublimate your journey!
