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

Dear Jewelsworld, thank you for your review regarding your stay with us at the Barchetta in September. I am surprised to read your negative comments about our service. We normally pride ourselves on the excellent comments received regarding service and hospitality. The young blond lady you describe as being "incredibily rude" has NEVER received such as comment as yours but... 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

We stayed 1 night here in October and were upgraded to a Junior Suite. Room was extremely clean and comfortable with great views over the lake from the verandah. Staff were really helpful and friendly. Hotel is right in the centre of Como and only a 10 Euro taxi ride to the station which we took when leaving but on... More

Good room, cleaning was ok and staff nice. The view over the lake is stunning. The only minor point is the breakfast, despite the fact that it was not bad in quality, the variety was a bit short and the room not very warm. Will recommend and will return.

The hotel has great location right in the heart of the Como, across from the entrance are departing all the boats for touring the lake. Rooms are barely 3 star with no blanket just sheet and the bed was very small for couple. One night at this place to sleep was enough, but I booked the top floor with direct... More

Very well located hotel in the centre of Como with reasonable sized and very clean rooms, specially the lake view ones I stayed on but don't expect much more of the rest. Breakfast is not brilliant but reasonable but some of the reception could do with some service lessons and being more friendly with the clients. The worst for me... More

The views are what this hotel is all about. The rooms are clean & comfortable. We stayed as part of a touring group. The staff were friendly & helpful. Not sure about the breakfast as we were in a separate room & the food we had was not the best (this more than likely could have been because of the... More
