“Fantastic find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Spent one night here before going further up the lake for a week home rental. It is charming, comfortable, and very clean. Staff was very helpful about eating and seeing Como. Breakfast was very good with a nice variety. I would definitely stay here again.

Lovely renovated building with delightful rooms, nice courtyard and really helpful staff. Conveniently close to the station but a little walk from the medieval centre and waterfront, its a great gateway to an Italian lakes getaway

Room Tip: Ask to be on the other side of the courtyard from the main building.

We stayed at Hotel Borgovico earlier this month for 5 nights while we attended the Italian Grand Prix at Monza. The hotel is ideally located for the San Giovanni station in Como; no more than 5 minute walk. The rail line to Milan goes through Como and Monza. For those interested in accessing the Grand Prix this way, I would recommend this hotel. The room was simple but comfortable. Breakfast was typically continental. Staff were friendly and helpful. There is a decent restaurant next door. Free Wi-Fi.

Room Tip: We stayed in the outbuilding which was more private.

We stayed at Borgovico Hotel for one night in Como.

I found the booking system on their website quite confusing. After entering all my details (including credit card details), I did not receive any confirmation of the booking. After a few days, I emailed the hotel directly to follow up and they advised that my booking was not confirmed as they required my credit card details. I was hesitant to provide my credit card details again via email, however I ended up providing again for the booking.

The hotel is just down the road from the train station and you are able to hear the train as it goes past. So if you close the windows, you can hear it. It's about a 15 min walk to the ferry terminal and the town square.

Our room was clean, but a little hard to get to from the elevator with our suitcases. The staff were nice enough to let us leave our suitcases at the hotel before and after checking in and out while we were out and about.

A beautiful place to stay. It retains some lovely character features while still having all your modern equipment. I stayed in room 310 & was very pleasantly surprised at the high standard. And as the weather was very warm, the air conditioning was extremely welcome. An easy walk to the lake as well. Staff were very courteous & friendly. Highly recommend.

Clean, good location, wifi that really worked efficiently (its not the case for many establishments..) I strongly suggest the rooms 311 and 309(?) as they are beautifully decorated and bigger, and 20 euros more..but especially if you travel with a kid you will like it as the bed is on a small attic. Breakfast in the back yard is better than the front dining room. Service was fast and to the point although we didn't have any particular request or an incident to test them in a "difficult" situation. I would go again knowing in advance that is a budget hotel for spending 2-3 nights at maximum.

Room Tip: 311 with attic

This was our first trip to Italy, a family wedding. The Hotel was lovely, well decorated, well furnished and very tastefully presented. The staff were helpful and very pleasant. The courtyard at the back was excellent for a little privacy and a relax at the end of the day. Our room was at the front, top floor and was a good size with a large king size bed and well equipped bathroom. The hotel itself is only a short walk from the Lake and city centre. It was a good base to explore Como itself. All in all we both loved this place and would stay there again.
