We stayed here for one night so we could explore Como before getting the boat to Menaggio for the remainder of our trip. From Milan Malpensa airport we caught the airport express train and changed at Saronno for the train to Como Lago Nord. This station is on the east side of Como and just a couple of minutes' walk...

I chose Hotel Quarcino for my recent 3 day stay in Como in August because of the generally favourable reviews in Tripadvisor and I was not disappointed. I was travelling alone and wanted somewhere close to Como Nord Lago Station and somewhere I would fell quite safe walking back to after dinner at night and I did not want to... More

While the rooms are a bit small and monastic, the hotel is great value for money - the staff are incredibly helpful and friendly. Breakfast was good and the coffee to die for - close to everything worth seeing.

The hotel has had some great reviews and I can understand why, but I did wonder if was in the same hotel. Breakfast is much like any other Italian breakfast, except they seem to only want to have enough croissants for a third of the guests, most odd! Our room was quite dated and so was the bathroom and didn't... More

We were quite pleased with this hotel. The location was excellent as was the price. Especially considering the alternatives. I didn't find the bed overly comfortable but the room itself was really nice and the bathroom was great. The price was great and included a pretty nice breakfast each morning. One of my favorite things about the hotel was that... More

We were awake before the church bells rang (7:45am on Sunday, 7:30am on Monday), so that was not an issue for us, but the bells were quite loud. The only real negative was that the bed and pillows were not very comfortable. Location was convenient to the funicular, the ferries, and many restaurants. Owners were friendly, helpful, and accommodating. The... More

Our flight to Malpensa from London was delayed by over three hours. We had to find ourselves a hotel in Como in the late evening. By good luck, we found this lovely hotel. The double room was large and very clean and the bathroom was very good. Our double bed was comfortable. Parking was adequate and off road. The breakfast... More

Brilliant hotel - glad to know places like this still exist - family run but get it all right. Super great value, no complaints. Yes, the bells are loud and there's a bit of street noise but you'll probably get the same everywhere in Como (and that's why ear plugs are essential travel items).

we chose the Quarcino because it was near a train station (yes), and wasn't too expensive. It's on the east side of town, near the secondary train station. It is better to catch a train that puts you into the other station, and then either walk across town, or take a cab. You'll have more choices that way, and fewer... More

Stayed for one night with my fiance on a road trip round this part of Europe. I was only able to book a triple room online, but was told on arrival I should have called as they had doubles free, so worth a call even if showing as booked & one of the four staff I encountered spoke good English....
