“Good clean room for a great price”
Reviewed October 15, 2013 via mobile

We stayed three nights while exploring the area and relaxing. Both employees that assisted us went above and beyond normal service--one carried my husband's suitcase up to our room; the other called, the night before we left, for a taxi to pick us up for an early departure to the train station the next morning.

Clean, large, quiet bedroom and private bath came with a sitting area outside our room that we did not use, but would be great if two couples or a family were travelling together.

Laundromat, bank, and good restaurants close by. And reasonable price!

Stayed October 2013, traveled as a couple

Thank you for taking the time to write such a fine review. We're so happy you mentioned the outstanding service provided to you by our staff. This hotel is family owned and we want to treat all our guests as "one of the family." As you mentioned, our location is perfectly situated for exploring Brunate by way of the funiculare, taking a train to Milano for shopping or a boat up Lake Como to discover the many quaint villages along the lake. Restaurants, laundry service and the Como boardwalk is right at our doorsteps too. We're so grateful you stayed with us and hope you will come back soon. Remember, you always have friends at In Riva Al Lago! Please join our community on Facebook and share some of your pictures. Grazie ...a presto!

This hotel offers good value in the city centre of Como. Everything is in walking distance. Rooms are clean and spacious. Internet works fine. Parking garage available around 100m away. Pizzeria in the ground floor offering basic food. The breakfast was actually good for Italian standards.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel and for your comments on our service and breakfast. In Riva Al Lago has a reputation for being a good travel value and we’re glad you commented on this. Our guests can always expect clean, comfortable rooms at a fair price. Our breakfast buffet is considered one of the best in Como. Just as a reminder, our breakfast buffet is served only from June-September during the summer season. We have a snack bar-restaurant that is open year-round. As you stated our hotel is within walking distance to the historical center of Como, the Come Nord Lago train station, the funicular to Brunate and Lake Como water transportation. We hope you will stay connected with us and share some of your photos on our In Riva Al Lago Facebook page. Thank you for choosing In Riva Al Lago as your vacation accommodation and we look forward to seeing you again on your next visit to Lake Como.

Three of us spent a few days in Milan before coming up to explore Lake Como. The hostel is the perfect place to do so. Close to the main town square and where the boats depart and also a 2 min walk from the funicular railway. Clean rooms and bathrooms and all at a very reasonable price. Includes a decent breakfast. Highly recommend to all.

Room Tip: Try to avoid a room overlooking the front as can be noisy in the morning with road cleaners/ buses.

The best hostel I have stayed in. Room rate included an excellent buffet breakfast (croissants, bread, cold cuts, cheese, cereal, good coffee, etc etc). Very reasonable room rates, clean rooms which were tidied every day. Good shared shower facilities and air conditioning. The hostel also runs a restaurant/bar (where breakfast is served) that serves decent food, wide range of beers and bottles of wine for 10 euros. Shared bathrooms are well kept and modern, hostel is a stone's throw from the lake and next to the local rail stations Como Nord Lago (or a short 15 minute walk from Como S. Giovanni). Mario who runs the show speaks good English and is very friendly.

I stayed here as a single traveller in August 2013 and found the room really clean, the bunk bed was comfortable and the shared bathroom was modern and very clean. The staff was friendly and the breakfast was delicious.
My only concern was that I didn't feel really comfortable in the area after dark, on my own. I would think as I single female travelling, this is worth thinking about.
Otherwise, it is a good location for the attractions of Lake Como, for catching the boats and for the Funicular.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. You made some very good points of which we would like to address.

We’re glad you found our room really clean and the bed comfortable. We take pride in our clean, comfortable budget accommodations. We’re also happy that you found our staff and the breakfast to your liking as well. Our location is one of the best in Como – only steps from the boat dock that can take you to the many enchanting villages of Lake Como, and steps to the cable car that takes you up to Brunate to get a breathtaking birds-eye view of the lake.

The safety and security of our guests is very important to us. Did you know that we have 23 security cameras installed in and around our property? However, we understand your point about walking alone on the street after dark. Como is a vibrant city and many people remain outdoors very late. We would like to remind our guests to be cautious wherever they vacation. No special precautions are required in Como as it is considered a safe place – even after dark.

Please come back to visit us – and bring a friend!

We felt very welcomed and staying at the guesthouse is worth while. The breakfast is good and offers a great variety of choice, we especially loved the brie and mozzerella. From the guesthouse you can make a beautiful walk around the lake and explore Como. The rooms are nice and clean, airco works great and we slept very well. Thanks for the stay!

Nice B&B at a good location, close to boardwalk and funicular (gorgeous views on the lake from Brunate). We stayed there 1 night last summer with friends during our trip around Italy. Nice and clean room, shared bathroom was clean as well. Very good breakfast, the best I had in Italy. The stuff was really nice, helped us with parking. They also have a little restaurant downstairs with very tasty food and good prices, it is worth trying. Highly recommend this place!

Thank you for your wonderful review! We loved having you and hope you and your friends visit us again on you next trip to Como. Our breakfast is a big hit with most of our guests and we’re certainly glad you enjoyed it. Also, thank you for complimenting the staff. We work hard to be as helpful as possible to our guests. As you mentioned, our location is about the best you can get in Como –only 50 meters from the Como Lago Nord train station that can take you to Milan for a shopping trip or 50 meters to the boat dock that can take you up Lake Como to enjoy its beauty or, as you said, a few steps to the funicular that takes you to enjoy Brunate’s breathtaking views. Again, thank you for your kind comments and please come visit us again soon.
