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

What a fun, cozy, clean, awesome place Riva Al Lago is!! I will definitely go back when I find myself in Como again... This was a spur of the moment trip (one night only) with 4 people. Even last minute, the rooms were available and affordable and clean and in a PERFECT location. We had never been to Como before,... More

Close to the lake, the bus stop, the train station (Como Nord Lago, not the main station), the funicular. Plenty of restaurants around. So perfect location. We had a room at the top floor, actually one of two adjoining rooms with joint entrance. The ceiling is high and with wooden beams (old attic, probably), the room is small but not... More

This B&B (unfortunately without the breakfast part until June!) is ideally located near both bus station and lake. We could see the lake from one of our bedroom windows. The room was large and clean with both double bed and bunk beds - and a shower with lots of forceful hot water - and two windows overlooking the street. Our... More

After a long day of train hopping, I needed a place not far from the train station in Como. The location of the hotel came as a live saviour and above all the cordial attitude of the staff came at a needed time. The breakfast was nice and then came its location near the lake to add to the overall... More
