checked out of here today. It was super central and has large rooms. The breakfast is good and the beds comfy. We had a room overlooking the water and it was lovely. We had enough pillows without having to ask.

We stayed for a week-end in Como and booked the Hotel Barchent Excelsior. Staff is very friendly, rooms are clean and have everything you need for a good stay. Perfect location, just in front of the lake, behind the central place and as it was Christmas, just in front of the market. We enjoyed the stay. The price is excellent,...

The hotel is nice, the room is spacious, the terraces are outstanding, allowing guests to absorb soul-cleansing, picturesque views of beloved Lake Como. Breakfast is ok with room for improvement, staff are friendly. Location is close to walks around the lake as well as to the old city in the back. You're also three minutes away from the train station,...

Very nice room overlooking beautiful Lake Como. We chose to wander around the area and eat dinner out, however, there was a dining area adjacent to the Lobby. The front desk was staffed by very pleasant people. Was surprised in the morning to see 15 or so canopies across the street in a plaza each with wonderful Italian items like...

With no control over our arrival time, we got to the hotel at 11 a.m. No problem! They let us check in early and were given a corner room with a great view of the lake, even though we had not requested a view and did not have to pay for it. The room was very nice, very ample in...

We found the hotel without any trouble, registered, and took our car to their sister hotel’s (Palace) garage, where she was parked automatically in (we were told) a seven-story deep garage with eleven cars per floor for 16 euros. The hotel was an older hotel and very nice. The lights on either side of the bed could have been brighter,...
