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

We found this place simply trying to find a cheap room in Como for the night. Tucked just behind the bus station and bang next door to the COMO LAGO train station, the location is perfect, tucked into a little side alley. The guy on the front desk was very irritating (but maybe we had just had a long hard... More

Location is perfect, parking outdoors as well as indoors can be arranged. Rooms are spacious, clean and very basic. Breakfast was included in our room price, was basic, but ok. Owner was extremely helpful and friendly upon our arrival We stayed for one night, spend a lovely day and night in Como before moving on. Would stay again.
