It is situated right in the centre of Como. You can walk from it to just everywhere. Parking is a block away in a hotel nearby and is convenient nevertheless. Rooms: A bit dated but very comfortable. Bedding is good. Toilette is perfectly adequate. TV selection is also good. Facilities: I didn't have the breakfast included in rate so I...

There was a skating ring and the Christmas markets in the square directly in front of the hotel before the lake. We had a junior suite at the top of the building which was spacious and nicely done. It was...

checked out of here today. It was super central and has large rooms. The breakfast is good and the beds comfy. We had a room overlooking the water and it was lovely. We had enough pillows without having to ask.

We stayed for a week-end in Como and booked the Hotel Barchent Excelsior. Staff is very friendly, rooms are clean and have everything you need for a good stay. Perfect location, just in front of the lake, behind the central place and as it was Christmas, just in front of the market. We enjoyed the stay. The price is excellent,...

The hotel is nice, the room is spacious, the terraces are outstanding, allowing guests to absorb soul-cleansing, picturesque views of beloved Lake Como. Breakfast is ok with room for improvement, staff are friendly. Location is close to walks around the lake as well as to the old city in the back. You're also three minutes away from the train station,...

Very nice room overlooking beautiful Lake Como. We chose to wander around the area and eat dinner out, however, there was a dining area adjacent to the Lobby. The front desk was staffed by very pleasant people. Was surprised in the morning to see 15 or so canopies across the street in a plaza each with wonderful Italian items like...
