This place is great! I booked 2 nights on booking.com for total $300 Euros which was a great deal for a perfect location. Personally, I glad we did not stay right in Como- it's a little over-rated there in my opinion. Instead we stayed up the mountain in Brunate and had the most wonderful view. The B&B is less than a 5 minute walk from the cable car which will take you right down to Como and cost $5.30 Euros roundtrip.
Kristina the owner was wonderful not only before we arrived, but during the course of our stay. The weeks prior us arriving, she answered all of my questions (do they have a hair dryer? Yes) She was even able to help me with my travel plans (what train station is best to arrive at in Como as there are a few- Answer: Como San Giovanni). She was also kind enough to pick us up at the train station and drop us back off (for free might I add). Honestly she went out of her way and it was greatly appreciated.
The house itself was beautiful. Very clean, the room was quite large (booked the double room with balcony) and it had an amazing view. The bathroom was also very spacious and she provided little things like a toothbrush etc. The breakfast in the morning was also great. Croissants, fruit, cakes, juice and coffee. It was just enough to start the day. There was also a little fridge in the room in which she provided water, sodas etc, all free of charge. Free Wi-Fi too!!
The only thing that I noticed that annoyed me one night was that the walls are kind of thin as I could hear the guests above us. What are you gonna do though really. Other than that, what a wonderful stay!
Would I return? Absolutely. Thanks Kristina!
