We stayed one night. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was nice. The location is great and the price very reasonable. There is WiFi free of charge. The annexed restaurant is good value for money and has a quick and efficient service. What else do you want from a B&B for a short stay? I think some of... More

Conveniently located near the bus station. The bedroom was very compact, but the bathroom was large. Very basic in terms of amenity, lack of table, chairs in the room. There was a ceiling fan and a small TV. There is no lift, so hauling heavy suitcases is hard work but the maid helped to carry my heavy suitcase. Breakfast was... More

We stayed here for three nights towards the end of October. Our room was basic, but clean and comfortable. The main benefit of the hotel from my point of view is the location, a five minute walk into the center of Como and the lake cruise boats, a 30-second walk to the funicular to Brunate, and it also offers parking,...

Thank you for staying with us at In Riva Al Lago! We’re very happy you found our rooms clean, comfortable and a good value. But, we’re sorry you experienced some confusion as to our breakfast buffet. This is a good time to remind our guests that our buffet breakfast is served only during the summer season (from June to September).... More

First of all i want to say, that ive booked via venere.com the room with a private bathroom. Can you imagine, how i was surprised, when we saw, that we have a shared bathroom with 4 other rooms.

We stayed three nights while exploring the area and relaxing. Both employees that assisted us went above and beyond normal service--one carried my husband's suitcase up to our room; the other called, the night before we left, for a taxi to pick us up for an early departure to the train station the next morning. Clean, large, quiet bedroom and... More

This hotel offers good value in the city centre of Como. Everything is in walking distance. Rooms are clean and spacious. Internet works fine. Parking garage available around 100m away. Pizzeria in the ground floor offering basic food. The breakfast was actually good for Italian standards.
