“Group Buying Site Deal. So Glad I Bought!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

We stayed here second week in July 2014. Saw a deal online, checked the other reviews and arrived with an open mind as we were only here for three nights.
Firstly there is an easier route from the train station to what google maps advise. Just walk out the front of the station towards the lake, then turn left so the lake is on your right. Keep going until the Piazza with Suisse Hotel facing you then turn left onto the Piazza make your way diagonally to the right side and and go left. You can see the TreRe sign now on the right about 100 paces. All in all 5 minutes walk.
The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately we had to change rooms but the first room was more modern, recently refurbished. Our problem was there was no hot water coming through that room, so the receptionist was more than happy to change our room. The second was older, but to be perfectly honest, it was very clean, it had everything we needed. Big wardrobe, nice bathroom.
Buffet breakfast was very good. We had dinner the first night as there was an electrical storm and torrential rain, so didn't fancy wandering. The food was really good along with the service.
The location of this hotel couldn't be better, right in the middle. Opposite a large department store with a small supermarket underneath it.
We discovered a market near the Tower and more independent shops further out.
The choice of bars for coffee, and Pasticceria for cakeis is great.
However, the next evening we did find a great place just 5 minutes walk, La Vita Bella. Huge portions, really good food at reasonable prices. We even went back our last night.
The lake ferries are easy. Just look at the timetable and pick your preferred times, there are different speed boats. We went to Argengno on a boat that took about an hour, lovely day, lovely views. We went up the cable car to Pigra.... Fab! Our return ferry was going to be a long wait so we paid a small supplement to return on the rapido, it took about 25 mins and was fantastic. If you're a little iffey about boats and water, don't worry the lake is pretty flat and the boats don't seem to dip at all.
All told we would definitely return and stay here again. Can't fault it.

A good choice for a quick stopover in Como. Located in the old centre of the city, it is easily accessible by car, in a short walking distance from the bus and train stations, and just a hundred yards from the cathedral square and lake. Spacious rooms, good service, efficient staff.

Staying there makes an interesting experience as the hotel occupies a historical building of a convent dating back to XVI century, and preserved some of its original structure.

The service is really good as is the food! They were busy with lots of business locals and still went out of their way to ask if we wanted our 1 year old to eat right away and prepared food for him very quickly. We didn't ask for anything but they were very child friendly. The decor inside is nice (especially the ceilings) and the food was extremely good with a nice variety of local dishes. We had a dark pasta and a gnocchi, both which were excellent. If you only go for lunch during a day of shopping then this is a must stop!

We arrived in Como by train on August 19th 2013 and just a short walk down a path about ten minutes we were at our Hotel. We checked in with a very pleasant greeting and had someone take our luggage up to our room. It was huge and very very clean my wife was very impressed that is her pet peeve to have a clean room. It's not a large town and everything is very easy to walk to in any direction. We enjoyed great food, experienced their flea market and took an excursion on Lake Como for the day. You have to be there to appreciate the wonderful view. The Hotel bed was fantastic we had a great sleep after a very long day. The breakfast was amazing we did not expect the room to be so big and so well designed in the Italian styles of long ago. I have nothing negative s\to say about our stay and would go again as well as tell all my friends.

Room Tip: We were on the fourth floor and judging by how they kept it so clean I assume they are all very nice...

Judging from the variety of photographs on this page, some of the rooms in the rambling Tre Re have been refurbished and refurnished. Ours was a little tired, but clean and pleasant with a view of nearby rooftops and terraces, as well as the entry courtyard below. Teeny CRT television with only one English channel (BBC) -- and placed high up close to the ceiling. Normally this wouldn't matter too much, but we were there as the US govt shutdown was beginning and more US news would have been welcome. Good breakfast buffet. Excellent location, close to the main square, lakefront, etc. Free WiFi. Best times to visit are when the food market is operating just steps from the door. Within walking distance of the railroad station -- downhill on the way to the hotel and a short uphill (steps) back to the train.

From the first moment we arrived I knew this was going to be a very enjoyable stay . Very friendly welcoming polite and professional staff to the charming interior of the hotel , the excellant comfortable room with wonderful air conditioning and fantastic shower, to the excellent choice at breakfast and the simply wonderful dinner in the restaurant, this is a wonderful place to stay I wish I could have stayed longer . Thankyou to all the staff I shall return hopefully sooner rather than later.
