Almost had a bad start as we had cancelled and rebooked the accommodation, the B&B didn't realise we were coming. That said, they bent over backwards to accommodate us. Lovely, clean and thankfully air conditioned and fanned room in the perfect location to explore Como. It is a bit more rustic than some of the upmarket hotels in the area... More

Stayed for one night. Excellent location. Near to the water front restaurants, shopping, landmarks, bars, and ferry terminal. And bus & train stations. Rooms are spacious, basic and very clean. And secure. We booked a double room with private bathroom. Excellent air con in the room, which is a must in the summer heat. Great base for exploring Como and... More

We stayed in Como for 1 night. The property is very clean and very secure, we need to open 4 doors (2 at the entrance downstairs, 1 outside our room and the one of our room) until we get into the room. Lighting in bathroom is not enough and the room light produce noise. It really close to "Como Nord... More

We stopped off here on our way back from a stay in italy and had some probelms finding this hotel as it was not on our GPS, it is on a little street leading off the bus station so very central, near to the lakeside for a drink with a view. We also asked for a parking place (fiercely fought... More

This is definitely more of a hostel than a hotel. The management restricts times when you are allowed to use the shower and bathroom during the day from 10-2pm. We also came back at one point during the afternoon (not during the restricted hours) and were not allowed into our room OR the bathroom because "the floors were being cleaned".... More

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.

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
