We always hope a hotel will make us feel at home when we are exploring the world and were so happy when we checked in at il Vecchio and got a friendly greeting!!! We got off the train from Milan and started looking at the map to see where il Vecchio was located. Lo and behold, I looked to my... More

Staff are fantastic and friendly. A wee bit hard to find but once we found it we have had the best greeting and service. Booked a Superior room with plenty of room, very happy considering some of the places we have already stayed at. I highly recommend this place, more than happy, perfect location, perfect restaurant, perfect room. 👍🏻 to... More

This hotel was a disappointment. The room, although well furnished (and with an excellent shower room) was small and noisy (street, neighbouring room, restaurant below). The rooms are situated in a block containing other properties, and are reached by two steep stone staircases and two heavy security doors. The big problem about this place, however, is the lack of parking... More

The check-in to Il Vecchio Borgo Relais is rather unusual. Wheel your bags around the footpath and look puzzled. Eventually someone waves you into the bar of the ground-floor restaurant of the same name (but without the "Relais"). Fill in the forms, hand over your passport, and a waiter guides you around the corner to a side doorway, where a... More

It is not that this hotel does things badly, but it does not do them particularly well. We paid for a superior double room with lake view. The room was up two flights of steep stairs and there is no lift. A staff member carried our cases up, we carried our cases down. Ours was a small room, clean and... More

AMAZING customer service!!! This place has a VERY convenient location in Como, close to everything and the staff goes always the extra mile to make your stay the best ever. We even got into a car problem and everyone did everything possible to help us get the car started so that we could get back on the road and continue... More

This small hotel occupies 7 rooms on the first floor of the building which also houses a restaurant on the ground floor which you simply have to try as it has great food and service. The rooms are really comfortable, nothing too fancy, but spotlessly clean and the shower was excellent. Toiletries are provided (including disposable toothbrushes and toothpaste) and... More

Spent 2 night here and was very impressed. Friendly attentive staff. Great standard of room. Lots of nice little touches....free water and soft drinks in the minibar, little packet of homemade biscotti. It is on a busy intersection, but the noise level did not disturb us. Breakfast was great......excellent selection of meats, cheeses and homemade goods. Ate in the restaurant... More
