i stayed one night in como and that it was an average hotel. i inadvertently walked passed the hotel several times looking for it and once i found it, the manager said he saw me walking by. thought it was odd he didn't offer to help as i was dragging a suitcase with me and as far as i could tell the only hotel in the area.

i also asked for a taxi back to the train station (didn't want to walk back dragging my suitcase) for a specific time, but they didn't call for the taxi until i was at the desk and had to wait.

i will not go back on my next visit.

An easy, 20 minute walk from Como S Giovanni train station if you don't mind going down the 54 steps when you exit (or take a 10 euro cab ride.) Not much 'uphill' anywhere in the city. It's an easier, 15 min walk from the Lake Como station (no stairs.) Definitely off the beaten path and away from throng of tourists, but close enough to be near everything. 5-10 minute walk to restaurants/bars and the boat launch to Bellagio. No view to speak of. Hotel design is modern. I really liked the big bed (without being twins pushed together) and the updated bathrooms. The breakfast was above average: eggs cooked to order, cold cuts, breads, pastries, coffee, tea and juices. I preferred being tucked away, but if you want the lake view and/or to be right in the thick of things, look elsewhere.

We spent 2 nights here at the start of our holiday, and it was a lovely hotel. Very modern and clean with perfect location, in the heart of the centro storico, close to the lake front. Would definitely recommend this hotel, but to note, the bathroom has a see-through glass wall, so make sure you know the person you're sharing with very well, or you may become better acquainted!!!

In the centre of the historic city of como . The reception is friendly and cooperative the only disadvantage you have to Cary luggage becouse the rental car not allowed inside the old city
The hotel are quiet and had nice Restorant close by where you can had a genuine peace of Italian pizza and pasta.

Room Tip: Rooms are small but for a couple or solo is excellence

All the good reviews for this hotel gave us big hopes and we were not let down. The location is excellent: because this hotel is in the pedestrian zone, it is very quiet but still in a very central position. The taxis can drive in front of the hotel, so you don't need to carry your bags. When we arrived, there was a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine in the room, that was a nice touch.
Our room number 304 was a corner room so we had two windows which gave good light to the room. The air-conditioning was timer-based, so it went off in the night time. However, the control unit for the AC was in the room, so we could have set the time ourselves. For us it was ok that the AC was on only for an hour or so in the night.
Breakfast was very good, every morning they asked if we wanted eggs made to our taste. Also sparkling wine was available.
This hotel has a unique atmosphere and nice architecture. Go and check the sink in the toilet behind the lobby, wau!

Room Tip: 204 and 304 are corner-rooms with two windows.

We had a 2 day stay en route to the Italian Riviera. The hotel has a great location in the middle of the old town, a short stroll to the lake.
The car was garaged by the hotel staff for a small charge (parking is a bit tricky in the old town).
The room was spotlessly clean, modern and nicely equipped.
The breakfast was very good.
The staff could not have been more helpful and friendly- special thanks to Elizabeth.
The highlight of our visit to Como was a day's cruising on the lake to Varenna, Bellagio and especially Menaggio. Bought a day ticket.

We stayed in this hotel in April 2012. We had the family room on the top floor which is quite big.
The hotel is located in the heart of the city not very far from all the attractions of the old town and the restaurants. It is also not very far from the lake if you want to cruise to Belagio or the other villages near by the lake.

When we stayed in this hotel, we were offered 2 free tickets to a very nice "mostra" of Brueghel paintings in villa olmo.

Staff was very nice and friendly and did their best to help us.
