After a month long hunt for a place to stay in Lake Como, we had at lqst decided to stay at this hotel, which had a very nice view of the lake in front. The hotel is situated just around the corner on the main street from where supermarket and Macdonald and a departmemt store is easily accessible. We stayed... More

The view from our room was breath-taking, morning and evening. Not only could we see the lake but the ice rink below and the Christmas market. We were close to pleasant places to eat, the markets (Christmas and local), pleasant walking areas and the terminal for catching the ferry. The room was extremely comfortable in size and appointments with large... More

This hotel was a 15 minute walk from the train to the hotel, but there is public transport if you need it. It is also very close to the marina to take the boats out to around Lake Como. Nice clean hotel with bar and breakfast. Also quite close to a few nice restaurants in the heart of Como.

As part of a Tour Group this property exceeded all expections from location to magnificent views of the lake and mountains. Check in was organised and friendly and the reception staff helpful with information about the local area. Rooms were spaceous, well layed out and spotless and bedding was extremely comfortable.

Dear Melvyn C, thank you very much for your recent review. Your positive feedback is most welcomed and appreciated. I will gladly share your comments with my cherished team.

We were fortunate to be able to take advantage of the hotel's "Spring Package". From our comfortable room, we had a lovely lake view. The package also included dinner at the hotel, a delicious dinner which was one of our best in Italy. The breakfast buffet included a wide array of hot and cold offerings. I would be delighted to...

Such a wonderful break here at the Barchetta Excelsior that a return visit is on the must do list. Exceptional staff and a room with incredible views up Lake Como. Exploring the many restaurants in the old town became a favourite event in the evenings. For those with a head for heights then the funicular railway is a must with... More

I stayed at this hotel as part of a tour group, staying in a room by myself. Of the five hotels we stayed at during our tour, this was, by far, the nicest in terms of room size, front desk friendliness, and cleanliness. It was also the only one that did not provide free wi-fi - you had to buy... More

Great waterfront locale in Como though during the time of my stay there was a huge tent erected in the piazza just in front of the hotel room so that the lake view I paid for was mostly a tent view. Being one of the last weekends of the summer getting a room change to a higher floor was impossible.... More

The hotel has an amazing location with fantastic views over the lake. The service at the hotel was excellent, with a great breakfast spread. We bought a package which included late check-out and dinner in the restaurant, which was excellent. I would give this hotel 5 stars, except for two things- the room decor looked like something out of the... More
