I stayed there for 1 night only with my small family. The hotel looks actually very nice, it's quite modern, spacious and clean, including the rooms. The internet was surprisingly good (compared to other hotels I've been to) and the parking place is next to the hotel. The location is pretty good, it's not exactly in the city center but close by so only 5 minutes walk and you have arrived to the perimeter of the city center and after 5 more minutes of walking you are in the heart of Como.
However, not everything was so good. There was a buzz, probably in the AC, at all times which made my fiance super annoyed. I didn't really notice it but something that should be taken into consideration. For me, breakfast is the most important when I'm traveling. A good, proper breakfast to start the day in a new city where you don't know where the next grocery shop is highly important. The biggest reason why I chose Lizard Hotel was because it was said to be "varied buffet" and not sweet breakfast which is common for Italian hotels. The photos of the breakfast looked also great, so I was sold. Oh boy, what a disappointment. The breakfast was a disaster; the bread was like the ones that you buy in a bulk for half a euro in those plastic bags (dry, disgusting bread full of preservatives and taste like toilet paper), the croissants were like the ones you buy frozen and are super dry and hard, then the cereal was made up by fake Cornflakes and some chocolate muesli which would have been OK had the milk (if it was milk, I'm not sure) not completely made the cereal absolutely uneatable by its horrible taste. So, my breakfast consisted of boiled eggs and yogurts. And it was the same with my fiance and little boy, eggs and yogurts was the only thing we could consume or wanted to consume. I also asked the servant if he could give me more natural yogurt but he didn't understand me, which I find strange since I spoke English and if a worker in a hotel doesn't understand simple request in English, he shouldn't be working in a hotel. So the whole experience with the breakfast made the stay kinda disappointing.
Owners of Lizard Hotel; please, consider to either raise the price of the hotel room by a couple of euros or make the breakfast optional and charge accordingly, just improve the breakfast instead of trying to save money on something so important.
