After checking out of the Albergo Terminus we found the rooms we were looking for here at the same rate. The rooms were clean and roomy compared to what we left at the Albergo. Parking is available for 15 euros per day and nearby at their sister hotel, The Palace. We tried to book into the Palace but it was... More

This wasn't our 1st choice, we'd wanted Lake Views at the sister hotel The Palace but when they weren't available went for Lake view here. This isn't the prettiest hotel from the exterior but it is classy, comfortable & well appointed in the public areas. The staff are all professional, efficient, helpful & courteous. We had clean, comfortable ( if... More

Barchetta Excelsior in my opinion is a 3 star hotel right on the lake. The rooms are very small to American standard, but clean and beautiful. We didn't have a view of course. Breakfast was included in my tour price. Nothing fancy, just muffins, juice, coffee, fruits, etc. but the dining room gives you beautiful view of Lake Como. The... More

Dear Guest, thank you for your review. I am pleased to read you had an enjoyable stay at the Barchetta Excelsior. Your room choice was that of a classic room. Should you return I strongly suggest a lake-view room with a small rate supplement, but well worth it. Our hotel has over 60 rooms overlooking the lake, delighting our lucky... More

Room size is great. We also had a room with a balcony overlooking the water. Quite a beautiful view on the 4th fl. The staff was good too. Very helpful and always around to answer questions. You have to pay for wifi, that's fine. Had no problems connecting to it, I noticed some people have. But my connection was good... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Rooms with a lake view are awesome. Location is perfect. On a square with some restaurants and right opposite the lake where the ferries take off. Dinner at the bistro was top notch and of course the staff was one of the friendliest I have met. Would stay here again.

Our first room was disappointing being at the back (and still fairly noisy) but clean and a reasonable size. We requested a move to the front of the hotel to a (more expensive) room with a balcony for the second and third nights of our stay and this was managed well by the friendly and professional staff. Location is great... More

Dear Guest, thank you for your review. Your compliments are greatly appreciated as also your comments, that will enable us to improve our services. Please note that during your stay, breakfast was served at the Bistrò as a temporary measure, due to the refurbishment of our lake-view breakfast parlour on the first floor. Therefore our rich buffet maybe lacked a... More

This hotel is in a wonderful location, close to the lake overlooking a piazza. We had a lakeside view in a very comfortable room with balcony. Not sure the AC would work very well in the summer, but we slept with the balcony door open so no problem other than noise emanating late at night from the piazza (revellers). The... More
