Hotel Cruise, Como and Centrale
These three comfortable 4-star hotels have a long-established conference vocation, also due to their magnificent and strategic position on Lake Como, whose locations are an international tourism reference point, as well as providing a unique experience thanks to idyllic natural settings and a rich cultural heritage
Lake Como area is undoubtedly one of the most popular and exclusive international tourist destination: the infrastructure efficiency, the outstanding landscape and the richness of historical and natural features of its locations are the main factors that have been luring not only leisure tourists but also a large number of top MICE professionals, providing in a refined beautiful environment a wide range of services, to ensure successful and prestigious events. In this regard, a reference point is definitely the Sampietro Hotels group, an Italian-Dutch family-owned company. The group’s textile division was founded in 1926 and is one of the leading fabric companies both locally and internationally. Over the past 30 years, the Group has also invested in the hotel industry combining dedication, love, quality and style into a unique hospitality experience that characterises the 3 hotels, all four stars, included in the Group: Hotel Cruise, Hotel Centrale and Hotel Como.
The Hotel Cruise has the well-earned reputation of being the largest design hotel in the Como province. This four star property features 218 spacious rooms, 4 meeting rooms with a maximum capacity of 200 seats and a large free parking. Located in Montano Lucino, it’s 10 minutes from Como and only 2 minutes from the A9 Como-Chiasso highway. The hotel successfully hosts all kinds of events and meetings, in particular medical conferences in cooperation with nearby hospital structures, as well as major sporting events taking place in the area and working in close collaboration with prestigious sports facilities located on Lake Como and its surrounding area. This year, the hotel has installed in the Double Rooms with Private Garage 6 charging stations for electric cars: a plus benefit particularly appreciated by the North European clientele, that has long favored this elegant design hotel and its “green” philosophy. For many years now, Hotel Cruise has been emerging as a reference point for gathering of vintage car lovers and for golf enthusiasts, due to its proximity to one of the most beautiful golf courses in Northern Italy. Located at a 2 minutes drive from the Hotel Cruise is the Mokart go kart race track where guests can enjoy a thrilling racing experience. Definitely an engaging solution if you are planning adrenaline-fueled team-building activities.
Hotel Como, fully renovated in 2016, is today one of the most contemporary design properties in Como. Renowned for its gorgeous rooftop pool, it features 79 spacious and modern rooms, complimentary fibre optic broadband WIFI, a 75 seats meeting room and an exclusive restaurant situated on the ground floor only open to groups. Situated down town Como at a 2 minute walk from Como Borghi train station and a 20 minute stroll from its stunningly beautiful lakefront, the Hotel hosts a large number of events organized by the Polytechnic of Milan, detachment of Como, located nearby. This year, the Hotel will inaugurate the new season on March 1st 2018 with a total refurbishing of all spaces, in particular by providing an additional seating area in the lobby bar and fully renovating the breakfast room with a brand new modern minimalist style.
Finally the Hotel Centrale, historical villa dating back to 1906, a retro-chic boutique hotel boasting a complete refurbishment. Located in the heart of Cernobbio at only 50 meters from Lake Como, the Hotel features 29 rooms, meeting facilities up to 60 seats situated in the exclusive 19th century tavern, banqueting facilities for up to 100 people on the outdoor terrace or in the authentic stone wine cellar, a large complimentary onsite car park, lounge bar and catering services available exclusively for events. The three star Hotel, that will reopen on March 1st 2018, will be upgraded to a four star this year, thanks mainly to the complete refurbishment of the 17 Classic rooms, located in the two storey 20th century villa. Its unique and romantic atmosphere makes this hotel the ideal venue especially for small intimate weddings. During summer months, the beautiful outdoor terrace is the right place to start your wedding day by hosting a memorable and totally unique ceremony of up to 60 guests.
