We stayed three nights at the Barchetta Excelsior and were extremely happy with our choice of hotel. The location is perfect! Our room overlooked the lake and it was fun watching all the boats go by. Just a short walk to the boats that take you to other towns on the lake. Also just a 3 minute walk to the... More

This hotel has good lake views, and easily accessible from the train station. Located central to everything. I am afraid it is a little dated and worn and needs an upgrade. Room facilities very basic indeed. Breakfast is reasonable but limited in variety. The staff were not overly attentive or helpful. Dollar for dollar not too bad a hotel if... More

I just got back on Sept. 10 from Lake Como with a large group of friends and it was FANTASTIC! Look no further for another hotel, really! The Barchetta Excelsior is right on Lake Como, facing the main piazza, across from the marina for the ferries, one minute from the Duomo, a short walk to the funicular to Brunate, and... More

We stayed one night of October 14, 2014 in this hotel. It was supposed to be a stopover driving from Bregenz via Lugano to Como, leaving Como the following day. A major requirement was late check-in as it was not known how much time crossing of the Alps and seeing Bernardino Luini frescoes in Lugano would take; we did not... More

The location is perfect ! the Como lake is beautiful, the Como town beautiful, some small improvements can place this hotel at much higher rating. In 2014 free internet is a must. What is more annoying is that the town provides free internet but this hotel blocks and requires payment. The food is average not more, rooms are clean and... More

Dear Shay P, thank you for your valuable feedback. We greatly appeciate your positive feedback regarding location, fabulous view and excellent service. Sorry about the wi-fi, but as an outsourced service we must charge for it. We prefer not to include the service in the room rates as not all guest request internet connection. The free wi-fi in the square... More

We found a comfortable sized room that was clean, quite and comfortable. They have a good free breakfast and the staff is helpful. Good location near everything. Across the street from the on and off boat, very near Cathedral, old town, shopping and many restaurants

Stayed in a Junior Suite for 7 days in August. The area was compact but air condition units tucked under benches no remote controls hard to operate. Bathroom lacked that there was no hangers for the second towel so had to drape in over a chair in the lounge could do with a grab rail as one has to hop... More

We stayed recently with a group of friends. The hotel is in a great location, across from the lake and not far from the train station. We all upgraded our rooms to lake view balcony, what a treat! We were on the 5 th floor and it was awesome! The view of the lake is terrific. The rooms are very... More

Beautifully positioned. Whilst our room was small and not a lake view room as such we were able to view the lake through one of the windows. Front desk reasonable but after coming from The Giorgione in Venice where the benchmark was set I can only give this 3.5 out if 5. Mostly because one guy was not overly friendly... More

We have now stayed twice at this hotel. Each time we are greeted immediately and quickly processed and moved to our room. The best rooms to get are always lakeview. All the comforts of home and if eating out is too much trouble, you can always dine in at the in house restaurant. It's close to ferry services and all... More
