I recently stayed in the Posta Design Hotel for three nights on a trip to Como with my partner and would definitely recommend it for anyone intending on visiting the area. It is ideally situated just a few minutes walk from the lakeside, Duomo Square and Como Nord Lago station.
The hotel has been recently completely refurbished to a very high standard by the current owners who also have one or two other hotels in Como. The rooms are modern and clean, the open plan design with the sink and mirror being part of the main room may not be to some tastes but the excellent walk in wet room style shower and toilet are set off to the side and are independent of the room itself.
The very comfortable bed, substantial wardrobes, stylish decor and lighting all compliment the room perfectly, although it should be noted that there are no tea or coffee facilities provided in the room and everything has to be ordered from the bar or reception, a bit inconvenient if you fancy an early morning coffee in bed but not an insurmountable problem.
The bar and patio area downstairs, with views over the local square, are very welcoming and relaxing. The bar gets quite busy on an evening, mostly with locals, it was a nice place to sit for an hour soak up the local atmosphere and plan the evening ahead although it does shut at 10pm on the dot whether people are still in there or not.
The staff were extremely friendly and very helpful, there was a Trenord train strike on the Thursday of our stay and we were worried about our transit to Milan on the day of the strike but the manager printed off a comprehensive list of options for the journey and left it in our room the night before which was very much appreciated.
We would definitely recommend the Posta Design Hotel to others and hope to visit again one day.
