When you enter in the main building, you discover the interior décor in Venetian stylewith a touch of modernity: the attention is captured by the Murano glass chandeliers, precious fabrics and operas of Venetian artists.

Metropole and Suisse Hotel Como

The Metropole & Suisse Como is a traditional property owned by the Cassani family. Guest rooms are air-conditioned and decorated with wood furnishings and classical artwork. Guests can enjoy a drink in the wine bar or dinner at the Imbarcadero Restaurant which features a beautiful terrace overlooking the lake.
