This is a modern hotel right in Piazza Cavour on the lakeside. It is very well located at the edge of the old city and across from the boat landing for the boats up the lake. It is a modern hotel, with adequately sized rooms. Very clean. The breakfast buffet was good and even had soy milk which my husband needs. The real plus, besides the location, was the staff which was warm and extremely friendly. They readily answered our every question and were always ready to help. We had to get from Como to Malpensa airport near Milan (no direct transportation) and they looked up the schedules for us with no problem. The hotel is within walking distance of everything, the boat landing (1 minute), the train station (5 minutes on the clock), the Duomo, old town. I would definitely recommend it.
