First impression of the hotel and lobby was not very good, but fortunately the room was much better than expected. It was quite big, clean with nice bathroom and balcony looking at the cathedral. Location is quite good, 5 min walk to the lake and to the center and if you are coming by car there is a parking available.... More

Initial impressions weren't very good when I arrived at the hotel. Looked to have seen better days but we were taken to another building further along the street which had just been completely decorated. Lots of space, comfortable bed, power shower. A fair amount of road traffic noise so take some earplugs. Definitely worth paying the extra €5 per day... More

It's not quite a hotel but offers a clean room in a good location just minutes away from Lago Nord Railway Station and the lake. The room was a little strange as the shower and wash basin are in the bedroom and there was nowhere to put toiletries so it was a bit impractical. Having said that, it was a... More

This "hotel" really didn't feel like a hotel. No one was ever there. Only a couple of hours a day to check in / check out. Luckily I was with my Italian cousin and she was able to call and make sure someone would be around. The place was always dark and we never saw anyone. It was like having... More

I booked this property at the last minute, and for once didn't check out the Trip Advisor reviews before booking. Maybe it's better that I didn't! This place has horrendous reviews - it sounds like we were lucky not to have had the same experiences as some other guests. We had an okay experience - nothing amazing, but not terrible... More

I paid for the apartment for one week and could not move in for 2.5 days. No compensation or apology. Had trouble getting baggage transferred. Very unfriendly management and especially owner Raffaele. Only got caffe one morning and that was because Raffaele was in the cafe and we insisted. His restaurant, skip it, better places to spend $. No caffe... More

The location is very good, but the manager was unfriendly, unhelpful and aggressive if you made any request, such as two sets of keys so we could come and go separately. Furniture in the room consisted of a wobbly table that was a pre-cast toadstool, and stool to match, plus one other chair. Matching toadstool in bathroom. There was a... More

This bed and breakfast refused to give us any information about breakfast until I complained to booking company. No one is on property except for 2-3 hours per day. Phones don't work, alarm didn't work, hall lights go out every 30 seconds unless you wave your arms, very dark halls are dangerous, and staff is unhelpful and downright unfriendly. Office... More

Fantastic separate apartment, although there was not any air conditioning it was ideally located for Como; just five minutes walk away. There isn't a lift and the apartment is on the third floor, but you soon get used to the walk. The apartment is well equipped with cooking utensils and a dishwasher, although a washing machine would have been useful.... More

The only good thing in this hotel was the location. Everything else was terrible. Never chose this hotel to stay in Como. They do not accept credit card, only cash. There was not hot water in the bathroom which was located in the entrance hall and we should go out of the room to use it. There was not TV... More
