Not your typical business stay, predominantly because waking up to Lake Como is spectacular. The Hotel Barchetta Excelsior is a classic Italian hotel, basic by comparison but perfect for enjoying Como. I'd recommend this hotel for its location, which couldn't be any better.

Having a fairly large balcony with an unobstructed view of the boat docks, 2 chairs and a table was probably the best thing about this place. Also easy walking to old town. The room was comfortable, air conditioning great, and the staff was very helpful. Anyway, we didn't spend much time in the hotel, except in the evening sitting out... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed ambience. Staff very friendly and helpful. Nice lounge bar for coffee or drinks. Room very clean with bedding etc changed daily. Lovely views of lake and so central for railway and loads of restaurants. Would stay here again.

We stayed at this hotel in July for my birthday and our fifth wedding anniversary. We had been to lake Como in 2015 to check it out before we invited all our friends to come with us this year.

Double room with fantastic, unobstructed view of Lake Como (Room 325). Sweet balcony, efficient bathroom and cozy room. The front desk staff was courteous and knowledgeable. Nice breakfast but sadly only Americano coffee. Short walk to Duomo and old city.

Fantastic location situated right on the lake directly opposite the ferry terminal. A short walk to the Duomo and shopping in the beautiful maze of streets in the old town. the rooms are very clean and airy although a kettle with tea or coffee facility would be an advantage. Breakfast was good although a little chaotic. Disappointed that it didn't... More

We came in late in the day to Como and had no reservations. Big mistake as many hotels were fully booked. We decide to go for a nice hotel on the waterfront. Room 114 for 249 € per night. The parking was kindly included at a sister hotel a block away and yes, the lady in the reception said there... More
