I can't stress enough just how good the staff have been. Laura and Valentina and Luca for front of house were excellent. Always... More

My family all enjoyed our stay at the Barchetta Excelsior very much. The rooms were in good order with quiet air conditioning. The towels and sheets were changed every day, which was great as the weather was so hot. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location was the best we could have asked for - right near the... More

I booked this hotel having stayed there before and I knew what I was booking. I had three rooms this trip and two were with balconies facing the water and one was not, it made me realise that the real big thing this hotel has is its location. The staff were helpful. The breakfast was good. You are right on... More

A great hotel right in the centre of Como with great views overlooking the lake and very good breakfast. We stayed for three nights. The only downside was that we had to pay for the wifi which was only available in the lobby and was very slow and unreliable. We only discovered on our last day that we could access... More

stayed on business in Lake Como and this hotel was already picked for me, however, I would go back every time. Staff very friendly and pleasant to deal with. Breakfast not the biggest choice, but all seemed very fresh and room clean and tidy. Lunch in hotel was very nice. Choose the dish of the day which was excellent. Hotel... More

Ideally located beside the lakeside and within the ancient Roman walls, this hotel was a superb base to explore Como, its ancient town and expensive shops, and the beautiful towns accessed by the lake boats. The hotel itself was very comfortable with largish fully equipped A/C rooms including a mini bar but no tea and coffee making facilities which we... More

My husband and I decided to close our Italian vacation with a couple of days at Lake Como. This hotel was moderately priced and conveniently located for our planned activities. We enjoyed a lake view from the small balcony of our 5th floor room. The king bed was comfortable with a full mattress instead of two twins pushed together as... More
