“Deposit does not save reservation”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

This hostel did not save our reservation, despite the deposit we had already paid. The manager of this property was extremely unfriendly and difficult to deal with. He emailed us at 11pm the night before our arrival date and then, because we did not respond (we were travelling), he gave our room away the following morning. There is no security in booking this hostel, so we would not recommend it to future travellers.

We liked this place. The very busy gentleman at the front desk took the time to lug my big suitcase way upstairs for me and went off with my husband to help him park. The location is super and breakfast very good, if a bit pricey. Breakfast is optional, however, but you must say whether or not you'll have it each day at the beginning of your stay. Our room was quiet and comfy, the bathroom VERY nice. We were on the top floor in the room nearest the stairs.

Disappointment starts already at the desk. Even if you booked a room without breakfast you will have to pay for it, nice... There is no elevator so, if your luggage is heavy you will be very glad. Rooms are basic but clean and recently refurbished, the bed is not very comfortable. Breakfast is low quality and there aré restrictions: only one piece of fruit, one croissant, one yoghourt,... Location is excellent but despite of that I would not recommend it, too expensive for what it offers and you feel cheated.

We were very impressed with this late booking in Como. The location is just off the lake front, but was very hard to find. It took us some 20 minutes to find and had to ask two people.

The rooms very basic but very clean and had no issues with this at all. Not many of the rooms have a view of the lake so dont expect an amazing vista. The beds are good and kept very clean.

The rooms are very narrow, i was staying in late may early June and the air conditioning only comes on at certain times and isn't even cool, it blows hot air to the already tiny cooked up rooms I couldn't sleep it was so humid and stuffy. Not to mention the fact that if you open the balcony doors it is VERY noisy you won't be getting any sleep as there is a busy bar that opens and people are very loud!!

We stayed at In Riva al Lago for 3 nights over Easter. We arrived by train from Milan Malpensa airport and it was really easy to find to the B&B, literally 5mins from the station. The staff were friendly and helpful and gave us some good advice on the upcoming weather forecast and which day looked best for a day out on the lake. We stayed in a double ensuite room which was basic but comfortable. The bathroom was clean with plenty of towels, but bring your own shampoo and hairdryer. It was quiet at night, but we found the noise from other guests in the mornings to be a bit disruptive, particularly families using the shared bathroom next door. The location close to the lake and the base of the funicular railway was really good. It will be even better when they finish the refurbishment of the waterfront area.
We were pleased we stayed in Como because it's a good sized town with a lovely old town and lots of places to eat and shop. The walk from Como around the west bank of lake Como is recommended but we thought the walk between Lenno and Tremezzo was a lot prettier and more peaceful.
