This hotel is very modern and nice, with friendly staff and a good location in the center of the historic pedestrian zone of Como. We had a 2nd floor room that was on the corner of the building. Our room was large and comfortable and the bathroom was very nice.
Our bathroom had a clear glass door on it with some opaque stripes that you could see through, but it isn't really as big of a deal as some other reviews have made it. The way our bathroom was laid out you couldn't see the toilet through the door but you could see the shower. This didn't bother me. If you're comfortable sharing a bed with someone, getting a quick peek of them getting into/out of the shower shouldn't be that big of a deal.
We found our room to be very comfortable and we had free wifi, lots of TV channels and a nice bed. There was some street noise outside, as there are a few bars that were opened late on the weekend we were there. It's a pedestrian-only street so just people noise, which isn't a big deal for us and I actually kind of like hearing some street noise when I'm in Italy.
The hotel offers valet parking. They have a garage off site and will gladly let you drive up to the hotel for loading/unloading, but driving down the narrow pedestrian street was fairly intense and challenging in the afternoon when it was full of people. The hotel is only a 10 minute walk or so from the train station, however it was a little tricky for us to find the first time. It's also a close/easy walk to the ferries that take you all over Lake Como.
This hotel does not have any views of Lake Como and doesn't have much historic charm, but it is in an interesting pedestrian historic zone and is a very nice, clean and modern option. I would stay here again and recommend it to friends.
