It was a bit tricky to find, but we were able to walk to it from the train station - approx 10 - 15 mins walk. Some of the decor is a little tired but the staff are helpful, the breakfast was lovely, and the location is very handy. And it was clean. Yes, we would stay here again.

This hotel is located in the center of Como, just a few blocks from the lake on a large open plaza. Very convenient to shopping, cafes and restaurants. In the afternoon and evenings the plaza is filled with lots of activity. The rooms are very comfortable and large for Europe. The breakfast was served in a well decorated second floor... More

We stayed here for one night while traveling with our teenage daughter. We had an apartment with a separate bedroom and kitchen. The accommodations where spacious, but there was not a lot of character to the room. It needs a bit of TLC and updating. It is a bit difficult to get to the room, especially traveling with numerous suitcases.... More

In a great location 10 mins from train station, one block from the lake (with some views from higher floors) and on a lovely square with plenty of bars and restaurants. The 'very good' rating I've given the hotel really reflects the location and how lovely the staff and management were - they were so friendly I feel bad giving... More

Rooms are basic; beds are hard; showers don't work (extremely small and they leak); sink backed up; door handle broken. Furnishings are old and cheap with lots of chips. Breakfast was mediocre at best, however the coffee was good. Shall I go on. The staff are indifferent and not friendly at all. Way overpriced and the 3 stars on the... More

Albergo Firenze occupies historical building on Piazza Volta, local meeting point lined of cafes and restaurants. Short walking distance from the Como S. Giovanni railway station, the Duomo and the tourist pier make it an ideal place to explore the city and the lake.

We made a last minute online reservation for this hotel, as we spontanously decided on making a road trip to Southern Switzerland and Northern Italy. As it was last minute, this was one of the last "payable" hotels available in Como. The hotel is perfectly located in a lovely Piazza in the historical centre of Como and just two steps... More

A classical 19th century Italian hotel in a beautiful traffic-free old piazza in the city centre, only a couple of minutes' walk from the lake. Our large room was on the third floor with a fine view of the piazza, but was quiet, and comfortably heated in this cold March weather. Super clean. Towels and sheets changed more often than... More

I had a nice experience at Albergo Firenze. I stayed there for 2 nights in July. PROS: They gave me a password to use the WI-FI with no cost. The room was huge with a nice view for the Piazza.

A lovely hotel on the Piazza Volte. Our room was on the second floor at the front with a view over the piazza and Lake Como. The staff were very helpful and their restaurant served a good variety of pastries and hot and cold dishes for breakfast. Very central location. Great restaurants on the piazza too!!

Hotel Firenze is located at walking distance from the Como S. Giovanni railway station and from the FerrovieNord railway station, both important for connections between Como and Milan.

Hotel Firenze offers its guests the best services: the large hall overlooking Piazza Volta – where breakfast is served every morning – and hosting business appointments as well as meetings with friends for entertaining moments; free internet wireless connection; 44 rooms equipped with digital TV, direct telephone, mini-bar, air-conditioning and hairdryer.The kind and reserved staff, the welcoming and familiar atmosphere, the quality services complete the offer and guarantee a pleasant and unforgettable stay. Hotel Firenze is an excellent starting point to visit the town of Como.
