We loved this hotel. The room was lovely and we had a balcony with a view of the lake and mountains. The breakfast was delicious. We ate dinner at their restaurant both nights of our stay and enjoyed it very much. We would definitely recommend as it is just a short drive to Bellagio.

We were in Lezzano 3 nights and we thoroughly enjoyed our entire stay. The family-run Villa Aurora was exceptional with accommodation, and a restaurant with awesome food (especially the pizza,pasta, and believe it or not - "to die for" french fries). We were able to take advantage of their travel advice for exploring the Lake Como area (a must by boat). Could not have asked for more!!!!

This hotel is a true jewel case and rooms too. They are very welcoming despite their relatively small size and the amazing view make one feel it's larger. I would recommend it for either lovers or family travelers. proximity to the lake with water sports, restaurant by the water, a cool and cozy atmosphere, the best place to stay for leisure and rest.

This is one of the best hotels I have stayed in Italy, it's only 3 stars but it felt more. The owners are lovely and helpful. Rooms are very clean, the bed and pillows were so comfortable. The breakfast was great, the restaurant across the street was wonderful with great food. It is very quite little village and it's so relaxing and also easy to get around the lake with the ferries or if you have a car you can get around quite easily. I definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. This is the first hotel I have ever posted feedback on because I think it deserves it. I want to return one day soon and stay longer than I did last time.

The hotel was very kid friendly, and had a great restaurant right across the street with a beautiful lake front view. The local food served there was fantastic. Short walk to the ferry dock. Not much to do tin Lezzeno but you are very close to the ferry and a short bus ride from bellagio. They had a dock with lounge chairs and a swimming area out front with a water trampoline. Kayaks and other water toys were included. Boat rental was available for an additional charge, we did so and it was totally worth it, we got to explore the lake at our leisure. The breakfast was outstanding, with local cheese and meat, a variety of fruits and fresh pastries, hard boiled eggs, coffee/tea/espresso/hot chocolate. The chocolate croissants were incredible. You could sit on the terrace and eat overlooking the lake. Service was excellent, they provided helpful recommendations and set up the boat rental for us. Outstanding overall.

This was our first stop in Italy. Thanks to the friendly staff, especially Critina, we had the most amazing stay. Critina was from Heaven for us...she explained water taxis, bus schedules, train schedules, and important things to see. Without her help we would have wasted lots of time. This hotel is in a most beautiful spot, near Bellagio,( 10 minutes bus ) but quiet and out of the main city. Hotel had awesome breakfast for us, and when we left early to catch a bus, they kindly packed us a breakfast to go..The views from our hotel were amazing.. Would have loved to stay a month or more!!!

Thoroughly enjoyed every minute at Hotel Aurora. Beautiful hotel in a beautiful setting away from the business of Como and other towns where you can't help but relax. Classic, clean and spacious rooms. Friendly and very helpful staff who made you feel at home. Restaurant attached to the hotel was brillant and great value for money with some of the best food I have had throughout my travels in all of Europe. Breakfast at the hotel was fresh and very adequate. Would definitely stay here again and reccommend this hotel to anyone coming to Lake Como.

Great location, not far from Bellagio and Verrena. Staff are very helpful, and volunteered to move us to a lower room [no lift in the hotel] as my wife had trouble climbing stairs. Front rooms get more street noise. No restaurants around, other than the Aurora's, which is nice, so have to plan ahead. The breakfast area is large and the selection quite good. Views from the hotel and restaurant are quite good, specially at sunset. Be sure to save some time for a day in Varenna.

We were first shown to the room where there was no view to the lake and no balcony, however after checking price range for our room ( we booked 4 people bedroom, but there was only 3 of us), we were offered to see 2 more rooms and those were amazing! We chose room in the building thats next to the lake, 1st floor, so you could just open the window and jump into the lake ( not in this seson tjough:)) Sound isolation is very good, room was cleaned every day, owner provided us with bus and boat schedules, breakfest waas really good! I would definitely stay there again!

Hotel Aurora is a beautiful place to stay with friendly staff and a great breakfast included with the room price. My husband and I highly recommend the risotto and perch at the Hotel Aurora restaurant. The rooms were lovely and clean and we had a great view of Lake Como and the Swiss Alps from our balcony. My only complaint is that there is little to do in Lezzeno so you need to drive or take a bus to Bellagio to do anything.

Wonderfully located right on the waterfront although Hotel and Restaurant are bisected by the main road. This did not cause us any problems. The owners and staff try their hardest to ensure that you have an enjoyable stay and nothing appears to be too much trouble. We had a room with magnificent views of the lake and mountains and it was wonderful to sit at our window before breakfast to take in the serenity of it all. The continental breakfast was delightful with all manner of treats to choose from. The restaurant served up wonderful pizzas and fresh, locally caught, fish dishes and had an extensive menu. The service was first class on both evenings of our stay. A wonderful experience that we would love to repeat.

I thought we had reserved a balcony room on the water but I probably mis-read the website information. We had a smaller, less expensive room with a lake view but not a balcony. The room was small but that is typical of Europe. The hotel staff were, however, superior in every way. We were delighted with the owners who operated the desk and concierge duties. They seemed to know what we needed before we even asked. They had suggestions and directions for all kinds of sights. The restaurant was along the water with a lovely view of the lake. The food was good and a few items especially pleasing. The wines available were also very good. My husband and I were both happy to have stayed at the Aurora Lezzeno.

The hotel initially was not how we pictured it. Somehow we saw it as an old world resort hotel. In fact, it is more of a charming B&B atmosphere with an excellent restaurant right on the lake with food so good that we met people that came from several of the other resorts in the Belagio area. One thing that sets the Aurora apart is there are actually piers and floats in the lake where you can swim in Lake Como. That is not the case at even the big resorts. I swam all three days we were there! Secondly, our room had french doors looking out onto the lake with a very small balcony...but also, there was a big window in the bath...when you looked in the mirror, the lake was behind you ...amazing. Best of all, the owner and all of her staff were so welcoming and cheerful and helpful. Every morning you came down she would say 'I think you should go to Lenno today, because the villa is closed tomorrow and there is a farmers market today by the waterfront. Here is the boat you take. etc....' Loved the visit! I will go back to Hotel Aurora. Without a doubt!

My wife and I stayed for four night in the latter part of May 2011. We loved everything about the hotel for what it is (small boutique hotel in a little village beside Lake Como). We loved its location, the facilities of the hotel, the quality of the food for both breakfast and dinner, and the hospitality of both management and staff could not be any better as far as we were concerned. We had dinner at the Hotel Aurora three of the four nights during our stay. Tried the second night in Bellagio (had a car) but realized we could do no better than the restaurant at Hotel Aurora. The Hotel Aurora was our fifth destination during our recent trip and we both thought it was the best overall hotel we stayed in, although the others were fine ranging in price from 125 - $250 euros per night. To add credibility to my assessment, I have been in the hospitality and tourism industry most of my life. I am also a professor at a University in Canada teaching courses in this same industry. As Italy is our favourite destination, I suspect we will re-visit the Hotel Aurora in the next several years.

We spent 3 nights at the Aurora Hotel and from the first minute we stepped into the hotel we were greeted in a very welcoming manner. As the hotel was not fully booked because it was at the end of the season we were given one of the new villas over the water. It was absolutely gorgeous and it was the highlight of our trip. The breakfast buffet was really nice and all the staff very really friendly. We ate at the hotel restaurant every night and the food was delicious and very good value. I would love to go back in the summer to take advantage of all the water activities. The hotel is only a short drive to Bellagio which is a lovely town.

An attractive hotel-well run family business-lots of character.Popular restaurant with great views over the lake serving good value tasty pizza and reasonably priced house wine,-(other more expensive mains were poor in quality and value I'm sorry to say- especially fish mains)and service rapid to the point of rushed which could be forgiven due to peak season and hungry diners waiting.The hotel boasts beautiful views of the lake, and is close to pretty Bellagio, thoughthere are no other bars or restaurants in walking distance,making you something of a captive in the evening if like us you wouldnt want to negotiate the narrow winding roads after dark.I dont wish to sound negative;on the plus side kayaks, bikes etc are provided and there is a sun deck (a little tightly packed high season)over the lake. All said, a special place you can feel part of and I wouldnt hesitate to recommend or return.

After arriving into Como by train I waited 1.5 hr for the C30 bus to take an hour ride to Lezzano. As it turns out the bus stop was right at the hotel and the staff was very friendly and welcoming. There was also access to the ferry within walking distance of about 10 min. The breakfast was very good and the restaurant on property was good with a grand view. Great place to stay if you want to waterski, etc. Also this is a quieter side of the lake out of the touristy pace. Only drawback was no air conditioning.

This is an excellent hotel. We received a warm welcome from every staff member we spoke to. The standard of english spoken was excellent. The room was modern and clean.It had a large, quiet ceiling fan instead of air conditioning, but we found this to be more effecting against the heat than the air conditioning in the other hotels we visited on the same holiday. The bathroom was clean and new. The shower was spacious and didn't leak water over the floor (why do so many hotel showers do this?) The hotel photos on this website are representative of our room. The hotel restaurant was excellent and we ate there every night of out three night stay. The men was extensive and reasonably priced. The restaurant was full every night so booking was necessary, however, the staff saved us a prime lakeside table every night without us requesting this. The breakfast was the best we had on our holiday in Italy. There was everyhting you could want for breakfast, including a god selection of fresh and seasonal fruit (this seemed to be lacking in most Italian hotels on our stay). The reception staff were hugely helpful and gave leaflets and recommendations. We found this overall the best by far of the five hotels we visited on our trip to Italy and would recommend it to anyone.

Let me start by saing that we had a great experience at Aurora and would like to return one day. We stayed here for 2 nights in May 2009. The hotel is nice, clean and family-run. Our room and bathroom were small (to be expected in Italy) but functional and clean. We had a balcony overlooking the lake with an amazing view, but the balcony was also very small (could fit just two small chairs). One thing to note is that the hotel is located across the street from the lake, not directly on the lake. The street, while not a highway by any means, is the main thoroughfare along the shore, thus lots of cars, motorcycles, and buses pass through. It wasn't a problem at night, as there was less traffic and you can't hear any noise when the windows are closed, but it did spoil our peaceful enjoyment on the balcony somewhat. That being said, this is an excellent hotel for the price, and the staff couldn't be more helpful. When we missed the ferry going across the lake, they arranged a trip to a gorgeous Villa across the lake by their private boat for us- not to be missed, we only paid 5 euro a person for the transfer. They even agreed to hold our wine and cheese in their kitchen fridge since there wasn't a fridge or minibar in the room. Their restaurant is exceptional- one of the best I visited in Italy, and we saw locals from all over the lake arrive here by private boats for dinner. The restaurant is directly on the lake and offers killer views. The hotel location is great- away from the major tourist traps yet very close to Bellagio where you can catch a ferry to anywhere else on the Lake. If you don't have a car or don't feel like driving, you can reach Bellagio quickly by very convenient public bus that stops right next to the hotel- ask the staff for bus schedules.

Our stay at Hotel Aurora was a highlight of our month-long trip to Italy. We stay 3 nights and wish we could have stayed longer. The hotel is a family business capably handled by Margherita , her husband and many others. It is a charming little hotel conveniently located a few kilometers from Bellagio. Our room was spacious and clean and had a great view on Lake Como. The breakfast room was huge and pleasantly appointed. Classical music played in the background and the breakfast selection was fantastic. There is a bar on the first floor of the hotel and a nice restaurant across the street with a spectacular view. We ate all our dinners at the restaurant as the food was excellent and the service friendly. Many locals eat at the restaurant and we felt like we were part of them. Margherita provided us with all kinds of useful information on the area. She is there morning and night to attend to everyone's needs. We would highly recommend this hotel and the Lake Como area.

This is a great bang-for-your-buck hotel in Lake Como. It is a short walk to the boat transportation in the area and local bus stops. Just a warning--it does take quite a bit of time to get from the train station in Como to the hotel (and it's a windy bus ride)--no one really speaks english there so make sure you know WHICH bus you need. Otherwise, a pleasant stay. The restaurant across the street was casual and perfect for an affordable meal.

This hotel cannot be faulted if you want a quiet holiday on the Lake. The service from Margahrita was exceptional. She spoke excellent English & provided every detail you needed for travelling around/ across the lake. The service provided by other staff except the family was efficient but not friendly. The food in the restraunt was fine, but there was no other choice in the town, unless you wanted to walk on very narrow roads which could be dangerous with cars and buses. The rooms with the balconies and lake views were fantastic. There was waterskiing available on site. Public transport was restricted on an evening so if you wanted to dine in Como or Bellagio you would need to return via a taxi which were expensive. Overall it was good value for money.

This is a great hotel in its class. We had a lakeview room which was spacious with modern bathroom.The welcome and help from the hotel was first class.The restaurant opposite owned by the hotel was fairly priced and very good with a great view.Parking is a slight problem - you leave your keys and they shuffle the cars around in the hotel bays - but best to leave the car and take the boats anyway.Lakeview rooms a little noisy from the road and locals saying goodbye in Italian style outside the restaurant.Overall a great hotel -we would use again.

Senora Marguerite is wonderfully hospitable (esp.to a single traveler practicing her Italian). Service from everyone was just fine. Breakfast was ample and fresh. The hotel is on the busy road to Bellagio(and right on the lake)but there are quiet hillside places to walk and easy access to ferries and buses.

First time we have been and will definitely return and strongly recommend this hotel. Marguerita, the owner, not only was excellent at corresponding prior to the stay, but was very welcoming, helpful and very friendly and pleasant, the best service we have ever experienced. Although there is not alot to do in the area, the views are spectacular, the hotel pizzeria restaurant directly opposite the hotel was great, there is a lovely sun terrace with sun loungers and it's a short drive to the beautiful town of Bellagio. Marguerita provided us with plenty of information about things to see and do and how to get there. We wished we had returned for another couple of nights at the end of our trip around Como. For a 2 star hotel, it is really lovely and should be at least 3 star. We recommend a mountain view room with balcony for only €10 per night more than the other rooms. If you request parking, there should not be a problem and it's free - best to email Marguerita before you could just in case as the car park is not very big. Fabulous hotel!!

Small family run hotel with Lake Como view or forest view rooms. Comes complete with a dock. Adjacent restaurant overlooking the lake offers a great selection on the dinner menu. Margharita runs the place and made us feel like part of her extended family. She went out of her way with travel/driving tips, ferry and bus schedules, and making phone calls (to Rome) for car rental information. Would and plan to visit again. Very much enjoyed our stay.

We stayed at Aurora Lezzeno for one week and the weather was a bit unreliable but we were well looked after at Aurora. Signore Gregoria was extremely kind and helpful providing maps and suggestions for places to visit. You need a car or you travel by bus or boat some times. The boat is not very frequent tho in April. We preferred to use the bus most of the time. Great sightseeing and we also did Milan by train from Como. Reccommend Bellagio, Lenno and Varrena

This was our first visit to the Hotel Aurora and Lake Como and although the weather was appalling the welcome we received from Margaritta and her staff was exceptional.We took our evening meals in the restaurant by the lake side and enjoyed excellent food and drink at reasonable prices.

Aurora is on the shore of Lake Como and very close to the tourist destination town of Bellagio. The owners are very helpful and always on site. Margherita speaks at least 4 languages and is very helpful and a gracious host. We ate at their on site restaurant twice and were very impressed with the quality, variety and price of the food. The breakfast served was also one of the best on our entire trip in Italy. We also recommend taking a ferry ride across the lake to other cities and sites.

Our stay at this hotel met our expectations. It was very clean and the room was very small. We had a beautiful view of the lake on our little balcony. The restaurant provided a lovely candlight atmosphere at night and the breakfast in the morning have a vary wide selection of cold items. Our stay was brief but the staff was very friendly in helping us with train schedules and so forth. Would not stay there again because it took all day to get there. We had come from Rome to Varenna by train. Then we had to take a ferry to Bellagio and then a bus from Bellagio to Lezzeno where the hotel is. It's a lot of work. Next time we will just stay in Varenna - it is so beautiful there! Lezenno is pretty but there are no sidewalks and nothing to see.

We were welcomed very friendly by the owner Margerita and she gave us any information available. The rooms were very clean but as we were three the space was not too much. All in all the hotel is very quieit. About a celebration of the football team we were informed before our stay so that we had the opportunity to change the hotel. For breakfast the hotel offered a variety of food and beverages and nobody will leave hungry. It is a must to try the restaurant. The food is excellent.

We loved our stay at the hotel Aurora. Margherita, who works the front desk, welcomed us by name as we exited the bus and could not have been more helpful and accomodating. The breakfast buffet was delicious and ample. I have already recommended this place to my friends and to anyone else who wants a quiet relaxing stay on the lake. Our room with the balcony was fine but when we were moved to another room it was huge and still had a view of the lake.

This family run quaint hotel is the best. We stayed in room 3 with a balcony and could see the lake from our bed. Margherita, the owner, created an atmosphere that made us feel like family by the time we left. She is helpful in any aspect a traveler needs. Everyone who works there is beyond helpful and courteous. The room, while not fancy, was clean and extremely adequate. My husband said it had the best shower of our entire vacation. The restaurant has a wonderful, moderately priced menu. The breakfast buffet has extensive choices including the tasty hot croissants. Their deck with numerous lounge chairs is the perfect place to spend an afternoon just relaxing and taking in the beauty of the lake and Italy in general. I will tell all my friends about this spectacular, homey, comfortable hotel. We loved it!

Nice room with a great view of Lake Como. Clean and spacious. Patricia(hotelier) was very friendly and gave us a lot of local information. The Aurora Restaurant across the street from the hotel had excellent Italian cuisine. My husband said the pizza was the best he had in Italy. Lezzeno is well located, around 10 mins from Bellagio, another pretty, quaint town.

Muy buena atención. Los dueños son cálidos y muy amables. El restaurant del mismo nombre y de los mismos dueños , frente al hotel es excelente tanto por la calidad de sus comidas como por la gentileza de quienes lo atienden.Las reposeras frente al lago permiten tomar sol con gran comodidad, solo faltaria mejorar el acceso al lago para poder nadar en él. El desayuno excelente y el lugar del mismo cálido y acogedor. La disponibilidad de Internet libre a un precio adecuado fué otra gran ventaja. Creo que merece más estrellas

We loved the Aurora! Beautiful surroundings, great accommodations, friendly, helpful people, delightful food and drinks. The only problem we had was getting to the hotel. Signage in Como was non existent for the lake road (SS539 I think) and the town closest to the Aurora wasn't even on our map.

A small, friendly hotel on the banks of Lake Como. Good restaurant serving classic Italian food, and great pizzas in the evening. Stunning views from the restaurant over the lake. Great facilities for water ski-ing and wake boarding, with a World Champion as a coach! Careful when crossing the road though! Ferry terminal about 100 yards down the road where you can take fast or slow boats to different towns and villages around the lake. Villa Balbianello worth a visit in Lenno: it's where they filmed the last scene in Casino Royale, as well as the kiss in Star Wars.

I was a bit concerned having booked the hotel to read in a guidebook that Lezzano never got any sunshine - complete rubbish the hotel terrace & sundeck were bathed in glorious sunshine all day long. The service - particularly from Margerita - was first class. The food was excellent and the home bottled prosecco at 6 euro a bottle was quite the best I've ever tasted. The location was stunning. I will definitely go back.

This is a wonderful place to stay. The staff are friendly and helpful, the food is great and the location is quiet and beautiful - a great place to relax after a day exploring some of the busier places on the lake. Please do not believe those who have said you can't get about easily - Lezzeno is well served by the slower boats, the fast boats and the buses. I had a quiet room at the back of the hotel; some of my fellow guests said that the rooms at the front were noisy at the weekends due to the road outside and the restuarant over the road. This hotel represents excellent value for money and nothing is too much trouble for the staff who will help you find your way about and seem to know everyone in the area. Highly recommended.

The excellence of this hotel and its location within glorious Lake Como cannot be understated. Firstly, if you are an independent traveller arriving at Como's San Giovanni train station, you can get to the hotel for about 3 euros by using the C30 bus which is located outside the station. Tickets for the bus can be purchased at the newsagents located in the corner station, and the journey is approx. 1hr 10 mins. You recognise Lezzeno by passing an ornate cemetry on your left, then you pass through the town with a yellow & white church & tower, you see a sign for Hotel Aurora on your right-hand side & then you actually pass the hotel, but ring the bell at this point. The bus stop is a few meters away. The rooms and views are quite magnificent, so I would recommend a lake view with balcony. There is a very good restaurant affiliated with the hotel, conveniently located across the road. The menu and dishes are really good and at very reasonable prices. Lezzeno is quite unlike other towns on the lake in that it is very small and apart from the hotel, does not cater for tourists. Therefore, you can have a really quiet, relaxing time there and feel assimilated with the local Italian people. You can, of course, visit several other places around Lake Como, but I always found it so nice to return to the quiet of Lezzeno after being in the buzz of places like Bellagio and Como. You can use the boats to travel the lake. There is a ferry stop in the village, a short walk from the hotel. There is 1 slow boat pre-12 pm which goes to places along the bottom of the lake towards Como. There a several fast boats post-12 pm that take you to places to the north of the lake. Buses run about 1 per hour, so all in all, you have the ability to travel about and see the magic that is Lake Como. Margherita at the hotel, along with the rest of the family are quite superb as hosts, making you feel welcome and they help enormously with any queries. They speak excellent English.

This is a lovely old hotel in a splendid location on Lake Como. It has a small beach area with beach chairs and ample parking. It is also very close to the embarcadero making boat outings simple. We had a room with a balcony facing the lake. The balcony is small but sufficient. However, the noise from the street below is very loud during the day especially the noisy motorcycles one finds in Italy. However, the noise died down at night and closing the shutter and door certainly helped. The breakfast and restaurant are wonderful. The owner is extremely helpful and goes out of her way to ensure a good stay. We had a lovely stay at this hotel and highly recommend it especially since it is such a good value compared to other hotels on Lake Como.

Margerite has to be the friendliest, most competent owner/manager we ever met. Helpful, warm and yet professional, one couldn't ask for more. The entire hotel seems to be a family operation, but everybody was so friendly and warm that even the best trained pros couldn't have done a better job! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to come back, even though the bus connections to Como and Bellagio are not as perfect as one might believe reading the ad. The stops are indeed close, but the schedule leaves a lot to be desired, same goes for the boat connections.

The Aurora Hotel in Lezzeno was a real find! Lovely location, wonderful views from the bedrooms, a great restaurant on the waterfront and first class service from Marguerite the hostess, who even drove us to the ferry terminal. Add to this a very nice included breakfast in a large well appointed dining room plus convenient off street parking and we would not hesitate in recommending this property.

This was a lovely family-run hotel right on the edge of the lake just a few minutes sousth of Bellagio. Two things that made it outstanding: 1) Margherite who helped us with daily travel arrangements around the lake and even into Switzerland 2) the wonderful on -site restaurant. We could eat right next to the lake, the food was very good, and the prices were reasonable. Would definitely stay there again.
