We stayed at Albergo Firenze for 4 nights. We had requested a room facing the square but ended up with one on the side of the hotel looking down to a small street. While not as good a view as the square it was still ok. Our room was on the 2nd floor. It was clean and comfortable, not super modern but more than adequate. We had shutters on the windows to keep out light and noise at night. The area was very quiet at night. There was a fridge, wardrobe and table. Free wi fi. The young girl at the front desk when we arrived was delightful and extremely helpful. The breakfast room was light and airy and we found the staff very pleasant. There wasn't as many choices of food as some of the other hotels we stayed at in Italy but still more than enough - yogurt, cereals, toast, jam, fruit, croissants, cakes etc. The hotel is located midway between the 2 railways stations - there is the local station and also the station Como S. Giovanni which was the station we arrived at from Milan. From here it was about a 10-15 minute direct easy walk to the hotel. The hotel is 2 minutes from Lake Como. Como is a very pretty little town with lots to see. We caught the ferry and visited Bellagio. We also caught the local bus to Menaggio one day for different views. There's a lovely walk along the lake where the locals go for a walk in the evening. Plenty of restaurants, shops, supermarket etc. and a couple of great gelato shops. Also a big market on Saturday near the old city wall. If visiting Como again we would probably stay at the Albergo Firenze.
