The Barchetta Excelsior is one of Como's newer hotels. It is quite comfortable with spacious rooms and quaint balconies that overlook a pedestrian piazza followed by the major thoroughfare and then the lakefront. The hotels upper floors above 3 truly provide uninterrupted views of Lake Como. The hotel truly has nothing to rave about except for its location which provides... More

As part of our honeymoon in northern Italy, our travel agent booked this hotel for us, and I'm so glad she did. We had a lake view room which gave us a lovely view. We enjoyed eating lunch and drinking prosecoo from our balcony as we watched the people in the piazza and watched the ferries and boat. This hotel... More

Stayed at the Excelsior for 3 nights. 7th flr room overlooked the Piazza Cavour and Lake Como. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful with very good English. Breakfast was excellent with wide variety of continental and hot options. Hotel is close to everything in Como - shopping, restaurants and ferries. Only (minor) criticism was service from the American Bar... More

Chose hotel from TripAdviser for location which did not disappoint. Easy level walk to all Como tourist attractions. The hotel is plain and lacks the Italian grandeur that some 4star hotels have but it is clean, is fully functional, has high speed wifi (log in once then constant connection), front desk staff spoke English, all staff helpful and pleasant. Stayed... More

Brilliant hotel in a fantastic location. We paid a little extra for a room with a view and we were glad that we had. Staff very helpful and rooms very co for table with a lovely little balcony where it was possible to while away the hours.

Only had one night here. On arrival we had been upgraded to a suite, but it was on the side of the building. Decided we would rather have the smaller room we had booked with a view of the lake. The staff were very accommodating. The rooms were not as grim as I had expected from previous reviews. Quite small... More

The staff organised on a Sunday morning for us to see an English speaking Doctor. After that we had to stay extra nights at the... More
