I had the pleasure of staying at this hotel after a pretty rough one at a nearby, similarly rated place. Particularly if you are from North America, I highly recommend staying at this hotel as the service, room size, and amenities are terrific. The place does not exude an 18th century charm, but nor will your senses be assaulted by... More

Excelkent location minutes from the waterfront, variety of restaurantsband shopping area. Walked wherever we needed to go, excellent service from hotel staff. Lovely large room and not an issue that we did not have a waterfront view. Would not hesitate to stay here again and I wish that could be soon.

Como was our fourth stop in Italy and all along we had stayed in four star hotels. Four star ratings must differ in Europe and the US and Canada, because Im not sure I would have ranked several of those hotels as 4 star hotels. This hotel was different. From the front desk to the reception area to the rooms... More

I have had the chance to experience this grand hotel and can honestly say it has been a pleasure. Staff and especially the cleaning staff deserve a big pat on the back. It is one of the cleanest hotels I have stayed in. I would definitely stay here again. Restaurants, ferries and shops are all in short walks.

We stayed here in May in a fourth floor junior suite or family room. The room had 2 balconies overlooking Lake Como. The views were spectacular. The room was quite comfortable though a little crowded with 4 adults. The beds were comfortable enough, the bathroom good, the food in the restaurant very good as was breakfast. The hotel is in...

Had a lovely 4 nights in Barchetta Excelsior with my wife last weekend. Staff were very friendly and helpful, especially in the restaurant. Food was delicious and reasonably priced too. No complaints whatsoever. Rooms are good and very clean.

We recently returned from a wonderful week at the Hotel in Como. Our lake-view room (#331) was ready for early check-in, which was wonderful after a long night-flight. The room was simple but quite comfortable; the best part being that it had a balcony with a splendid view of the Lake. The staff were friendly & helpful. The location is... More

We were very happy with our stay here. Sitting out on our balcony overlooking Lago Como was memorable. The room was fine (bed was far too soft for my liking - time for a replacement I think). The reception staff were, at times, helpful. Other times they could be a bit surly. Location was the highlight of this Hotel. However,... More
