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

We enjoyed our stay here and were especially happy with the location. We paid a bit extra upon check-in to get a view room and it was worth it! We had a fantastic view of the water and the plaza below. The employees were very friendly and helpful.

We were booked in for a 3 night stay during our recent Holiday, the location of the Hotel is excellent right on the front of the Lake. The staff were very accommodating and friendly, spoke excellent English and the rooms were big and airy with the bonus of air conditioning, and spotlessly clean. The buffet breakfast was better than most... More

We, mature couple, stayed two nights in this hotel during a tour of Italy. It has an excellent location very near the lake, most shopping and places worth visiting are in easy walking distance, as are numerous cafes and restaurants. Breakfast was reasonable, somewhat limited in choices. The room would benefit from a coffee/tea maker.

The hotel is located about 150m from the shore of lake Como. Normally we don't pay extra for a view but I'm glad we did for this visit. The room was typical size for Europe which means a little small by American standards, but with the balcony, with chairs, overlooking spectacular Lake Como the size of the room didn't really...

We crossed Swiss-Italy border to see the beauty of Lake Como, with its colorful resort-style buildings and boats all around. That night we check-in at Hotel Barchetta Excelsior, conveniently situated just across the street from Lake Como. There is a large open square in front of the hotel. So we can enjoy ourselves with a nice view of lake Como... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in mid-May 2016. The hotel is well located on the main square just a few steps from the lake ferry terminal. The tourist information office is in the square too. The hotel doesn't look much from the outside but the rooms are a good size and surprisingly quiet. Our room had a sunny balcony... More
