We knew Lake Como was expensive - but this hotel was reasonably priced and included breakfast. The location was great - 8 minutes walk from the train station (bus and train only cost 16 euros each return from Bergamo/Milan airport). Very easy walk (pretty level) for all the restaurants and bars and right near the ferry port for other destinations.
The staff were very friendly and helpful - when we knew we were going to be late in (after midnight) they gave us a phone number to call so they could come and let us in the front door and we were leaving early on our last day and they made us a breakfast bag of orange juice, croissants and apples to take on the train the night before.
The place had real character and fantastic views of the lake.
Small downsides were if you are on the 4th floor as we were its long way up - still it works off the ice creams we'd had and the beds were very firm, but we just folded up the spare blanket to go under the sheet.
