My wife and I were on a tour of Italy and this was first stop. Hotel room was decent. No free wi-fi, not even in lobby. When asked about free wi-fi, staff pointed to the open area across the street from the hotel, where it was misting and drizzling, on and off all day! Thanks! No water heater for coffee... More

Recently stayed with my grandmother, mom and aunt. While we did have a lovely stay due to the central location we were all disappointed that the hotel did not offer free wifi. The city of Lake Como offers free wifi (not able to connect in the hotel), yet the hotel doesn't offer it. The staff was kind and accommodating. I'd... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in 2013 and had a wonderful stay in Como. The hotel is very clean and staff was helpful. The location is perfect for seeing the area and several nice resturants within walking distance. The only con I can comment on is my husband's leather jacket (a gift) was stolen while we were...

I chose this hotel for our four night stay after reading the great reviews on Trip Advisor. I have to say, it didn't meet my expectations at all. The location was excellent, right by the lake and lots of restaurants nearby. However, we had a lake view room on the first floor, which was very noisy! We could hear all... More

Our travel agent recommended this hotel when our first choice (recommended by a business colleague) had no availability. We were pleased to discover its prime location on a piazza with a lake view, when we arrived after an overnight flight from the U.S. Elena greeted us with an enthusiastic "Buon giorno!" and, after checking us in, informed us that, due...

We found this hotel online, and were very happy with our choice! The hotel is in a great location...close to restaurants, bars, stores and a beautiful church, and the best part it is very close to the beautiful Lake Como. There is a small bar in the lobby with a very nice bartender who provided extra treats even though we... More

We stayed in this hotel as part of a Trafalgar tour group. The rooms were clean and roomy with larger-than-average bathrooms, which was appreciated after what we had in Venice. It is also a very modern hotel with nice amenities (I still have their complimentary slippers). The location of the hotel couldn't be more convenient to doing things in Como... More

The position opposite the Lake Ferry Terminal is first class.The Piazza, the Bus stop zone, the close proximity to all that the lake has to offer, and, all outside the front door is just perfect. The Funiculare Railway is within 400 metres walk as is the Nord Railway Station and the Bus Terminal. There is also a multitude of shops,... More

Great location, high standarts, reasonable rates, what else? Regarding a stay in Como whatever the purpose of your trip is barchetta excelsior is the right place to choose. Choose a room having lake view with balcony you will experience unforgettable time.
