The 2 highlights for this place are : 1) The superb breakfast of a large selection of many cheeses & meats together with croissants, cakes, pastries, fruit, juices, cereals and even drinking chocolate. (Even better was that it was a complete surprise as Booking.com’s summary showed that breakfast was not included – but the hotelier insisted that we ignore Booking.com’s... More

We were immediately stunned by how helpful the front desk was during our check-in and then during our stay, such a nice person. The hotel itself is fantastic value, in a great spot near the river. We had a twin room with a shared bathroom and it was always kept clean, with fantastic working aircon and WiFi. There is a... More

This hostel is a good choice when staying in Lake Como. Rooms were nice and the bathrooms were great, especially compared to the usual standard of shared bathrooms. The WiFi was good and breakfast was also excellent. Good location for anything you want to do in Como. My only complaint is the excessive hours that the bathrooms and toilets are... More

The bed and breakfast had a good location with a bus station and train station metres away. It was a good location to walk around lake como and explore the town. The B&B itself was a basic room with a shared balcony, the room was tidy, presentable and secure. The shared bathroom was also very clean. There were a fair... More

Stayed here in the guesthouse adjacent to the hotel with shared bathroom facilities. Although shared facilities are never my first choice, I was late with booking and this was the only affordable option. And it was a good choice, the shared bathrooms (separate men's/woman's) were big and very clean. The rooms are functional and equipped with air conditioning. There is... More

I stayed here for 4 nights. The place was clean, the staff was super helpful, breakfast included was great. There was even ac in the room. And the location could not be beat! Usually spots near train/bus stations feel a little sketchy, but this was not. It's so close to the lake and there are always people walking around here.... More

I can't recall the name of the bloke who runs the show there, but he was a legend. The place wasn't too expensive considering where it is and what you get. The breakfast buffet was included (obviously) and it was pretty nice! Close to the funicular and lake. Cosy as anything.

We had a family of 5 (2 adults, 3 children). The hotel is in a great location & serves breakfast, but is very basic & a but run-down. If staying here, use it as a place to sleep but it is not the sort of hotel where you want to sit around in the rooms, but then it is Como... More

So many positives about this place and only one negative. Let's get the negative out the way... My negative is about one of the men who works on reception. His name is carmelo! He was rude, abrupt and patronising! I felt like he was telling me off every time I asked him something. Needs to have a lesson on good... More

As other reviewers said, this is a great location (noting that this is near como nord station - there are two and we got to nord from milan cadorna stn). Our room, for eu70 with ensuite, was clean, large and well finished with tiled floors and a good bathroom (good strong shower). Enough power points, a full length mirror, cupboard,... More
