“first timer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

This was our first trip to Italy, a family wedding. The Hotel was lovely, well decorated, well furnished and very tastefully presented. The staff were helpful and very pleasant. The courtyard at the back was excellent for a little privacy and a relax at the end of the day. Our room was at the front, top floor and was a good size with a large king size bed and well equipped bathroom. The hotel itself is only a short walk from the Lake and city centre. It was a good base to explore Como itself. All in all we both loved this place and would stay there again.

We stayed in Como for 2 nights but only managed to book this hotel for one (we originally were only going to stay in Como for one night as part of our European tour, but loved it so much!) then moved to the hotel next door, which was also lovely.
The room was at the back of the hotel and up one flight of stairs. It had a double bed downstairs, then a spiralling staircase led up to the second bedroom with a double bed also. This room had a balcony overlooking the room downstairs (open plan). The room was huge and gorgeous, as was the courtyard. Staff were friendly and attentive without being over-bearing.
Spotlessy clean, airconditioned and beautifully decorated.

The restaurant directly opposite was excellent and the bar further down on the same side was fab. It had a studenty feel and welcomed all ages. The walls were covered in beer mats that travellers had written messages on. It had a great vibe and ver friendly bar staff.

Como itself is absolutely stunning. It has plenty to offer and is quite a large town yet it has the relaxed pace of a much smaller one.

I can't wait to go back and I will most definitely be booking this hotel!

Room Tip: The room with the stairs leading directly from the courtyard is excellent. It sleeps 4 so is excell...

For a few nights this is a good find. A short walk form the centre of Como (10 mins) and only 5 minuets form the lake. The restaurant 2 doors down is excellent. As with all small hotels only one person on the front desk, but is is manned 24 hours, with bar service and good English. As with all city hotels, rooms are small, but adequate. Bathroom is clean and functional, but the shower did leak onto the floor (which is designed as a wet room).
Breakfast good by continental standards, and has the option of eating in an open air courtyard, which was very pleasant.
A small hotel on a back street of Como, which I would use again.

My wife, daughter and I loved this hotel. Its quiet, close to the station and city centre and there are some very good places to have dinner close by. Breakfast was above average, there is a very nice rear courtyard, free WIFI and the staff are great, especially Lino who was just so helpful and gracious. All in all a charming hotel with reasonable rates and close to everything that beautiful Como has to offer. We would happily stay here again.

The location of the hotel is a short 5 minute walk from the train station in Como, and another 10 minutes walk to the busier parts of the city centre. The location is one of the main reasons I chose to stay here.
I arrived at 12.30pm, and when I got to the hotel, it was 'closed' as they were still cleaning the rooms (I presumed). The front door was locked so you had to press a bell to be let in. The guy who greeted me was allowed me to wait in the lobby until my 2.00pm check in time, and I actually didn't mind the wait as I was glad to have a rest before settling into my room.
My room was adequately equipped, and it was big enough and comfortable for just one person. The wifi speed was good; no lag issues. And while there were not a huge selection of food at breakfast, the staff was quite attentive to all the guests' coffee/hot beverages' needs.
Overall, for the price I paid, and especially during peak season, I enjoyed my stay and would happily recommend this to anyone considering a good accommodation in Como.

Hotel Borgovico in Como was a very nice surprise for me. Usually I do stay in Milano, but this time my favourite hotel in fashion city was booked and I decided to use this opportunity to discover Como and I was not disapointed. The location of the hotel is very close to the train station, just 5 minutes walk time. The room was very spacious, very clean, with two floor, wi - fi free of charge.
The staff was very nice, kind, helpful.
I love morning time, and breakfast in the garden with fresh juice, hot caffee, and nice pastery , enjoying sunshine and nice music was just the best.
Looking forward to come back

we had been unable to come to the Borgovico in March due to circumstances out of our control and the staff had kindly offered to give us a discount if we came again, so as our path again crossed Como we decided to give it a try. The hotel looks a tad shabby from the front, but inside was much nicer. We had a room beyond the pretty internal courtyard which was quite small but nicely furnished. The real problems were out of the hotels remit - it was very cold and very wet - unseasonable weather for the end of May. I went to complain and was lent a small electric fire which did warm the room up. The location was good, a ten minute walk to the railway station (a good place to park in a town which is almost impossible to park in), and the breakfast was good if not memorable. I would definitely recommend.

Thanks for your review.
We are pleased that you enjoyed the hotel and we're also sorry for the unlucky weather.
During this period there was a record of cold and because of a law of the town of Como we can't turn on the heater in this month and we had to remedy with the small electric fire.
Thanks a lot for the recommendation to other users of the site
