  • About this holiday

    The Grand Hotel Imperiale Resort & SPA on Lake Como is a charming and historic four star hotel in a beautiful setting. Distinctly Art Nouveau in style, with a new Rationalist wing (a style which originated in Como), the comforts of this hotel are in stunning contrast with the vast sublime natural phenomena that sit on its doorstep. Its proximity to Como and Cernobbio make it a popular destination for clients looking to fully experience the pleasures of the lake.

    Client testimonial: "Excellent choice of food and very good service."

    Our opinion

    The Grand Hotel Imperiale Resort & SPA in Moltrasio offers period Art Nouveau grandeur in a splendid lakeside setting.

    Hotel description

    The Grand Hotel Imperiale Resort & SPA in Moltrasio is a four-star hotel of great charm and historical character, set amidst a luxuriant garden looking directly on to glorious Lake Como. Dating back to 1926, the Imperiale – originally the Hotel Regina – was built in late Art Nouveau style and whilst it has been extended and refurbished over the years, it has retained its period atmosphere. The Imperiale has 120 rooms and suites including 11 deluxe rooms in the exclusive Villa Imperiale, a hotel within a hotel. Many of the rooms overlook the village of Moltrasio and Mount Bisbino, whilst a select few face directly on to the lake. Elegantly styled and furnished, the rooms feature a wide range of amenities and some are particularly spacious, rendering them ideal for families or longer stays. Rooms in the Villa Imperiale offer additional seclusion and privacy with the Regina Lakeside Bar situated on the ground floor offering views towards the pool. Ristorante Imperialino enjoys a refined gastronomic reputation serving innovative interpretations of traditional Italian dishes. The Garden Restaurant serves Italian cuisine with Mediterranean flavours whilst the Regina Bar boasts original period furnishings and overlooks the inner courtyard garden. A newer addition to the hotel is a new wing where the SPA building resides, with its Deluxe spa rooms and I-SPA, the wellness and beauty centre. As well as the seasonal outdoor swimming pool set in the middle of the garden, the Grand Hotel Imperiale also features a tennis court, nine-hole putting green, two driving ranges and a variety of water sports available nearby.
