The Lizard Hotel is a little bit outside the old part of the city but it's only a 10 minute walk. Our room was on the third floor and was very comfortable. The restaurant served a very good buffet breakfast. In my opinion the best thing about the hotel were the staff, who were very friendly and suggested places to... More

I ended up here against my will as my original hotel was overbooked. Was not too happy about that... Location is quite distant, room very basic and unfortunately not very clean. It's quite surprising to read other reviews saying this hotel is clean. Maybe I was just unlucky but this really was one of the dirtiest hotels I have ever... More

Easy to find - room good and clean. Breakfast reasonable buffet selection. Quite a long walk into the centre - however very easy once you use the local buses. Buy a ticket from one of the bar/table outlets as buying on the bus is dearer. Restaurant was closed for renovation, but not a problem with some very good restaurants in... More

We spent 2 nights at this small hotel in the back blocks of Como. We were relieved to have air conditioning and a nice comfortable queen sized bed, not 2 beds pushed together! Although not the most modern décor, it was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was very clean and adequate. The steel stair case was very industrial chic, unfortunately... More

What more do you need for a quick stop-over! Rooms were basic, but clean and comfy. Breakfast buffet was extensive, and high quality. Interesting staircase was an architectural feature. And they recommended a great restaurant for dinner too, and was just a walk away.

The accomodation was ok, al little dated. The service was very good. When we arrived we got a coffee. The sfaff was very friendly. To the center it is a ten minutes walk. Breakfast was good. They didn't charge the parking, so that was extra service.

We stayed there three nights. We had a very warm welcome. Our room was quite big, the internet was very good (better than in other hotels I've been) it was very clean, also the breakfast was okay the buffet was kinda cute. They say it's 10-15minutes to the lake and the old town. Actually it took us a little longer... More
