Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 August 2013

The reception was incredible. Valentina - office manager checked us in very efficiently
provided us with information on the area. And recommended activities for 2 days which were
right on!!!..every one in the reception area: Valentina ( another ) and Elena were totally helpful
visiting Como is a great decision....more than other areas at the lake...pricewise is effective...
and you can move from point a to b to c very easily.
We highly recommend this hotel...and would certainly come back if we are in the area!!!!
Bartender was very friendly as well....you can't miss coming to this hotel..
Breakfast included in the price makes it even a great deal!

Room Tip: definitely pay a little bit more for the Lake View....

In the middle of the piazza overlooking the lake, Barchetta has an excellent location. Spotless rooms and bathrooms. The front desk staff are extremely pleasant and helpful. They helped us with all sorts of questions from places to dine, places to visit and how to get there. Breakfast buffet is also greaat. WiFi is for a fee, however, there is a public free WiFi network in the piazza. We were lucky since we were able to connect to this network from the balcony of the room.

A great stay that is worth the money.

Room Tip: Pick a room with lake view on level 3 or above.

close to both stations in Como- ensure you ask for a lake view on 4th floor upwards- overlooks square which is heaving at night (in a good way) close to large choice of restaurants (Eastwards are better than south), close to ferries- wonderful views day and night. Rooms good-could have more space between twin beds. Wifi expensive but sit on balcony and you can connect to city wifi for free, Reasonable bathroom & toiletries. Good tv and choice of channels. Enough plug points for re-charging and lamp controls convenient. Excellent choice of breakfast although e
scrambled eggs were tasteless. Fruit was very fresh and there were good alternatives of juice, teas/coffees and croissant

Room Tip: facing lake above 4th floor

We stayed in a 5th floor room with balcony and a lake view. Fabulous! The unobstructed view if the piazza in front of the hotel and down the lake was worth paying for. Bought in dinner and wine from the local supermarket rather than eat at a restaurant, as we had the best view in town! The room was comfortable, slightly old fashioned for a recently renovated room, but large and with a comfortable king size bed. The breakfast was adequate but had limited selections. Reception staff were very friendly and welcoming and spoke good English. Secure parking at a sister hotel 100 metres away cost 15 euro. Would recommend this hotel.

thank you for your review. We are very happy to read that you appreciated our beautiful lake view and the quality of the staff at the reception. I will refer your compliments to them.
We hope to welcome you back and we remind our guests that our restaurant will be more than happy to serve lunch or dinner directly in your room, on your balcony, so you can enjoy the view while eating.

We are a family of 4 from Australia and recently stayed at this hotel. Everything about it was wonderful. Location, rooms, staff and service. We had only organised to stay for 2 nights and will be our biggest regret of our overall Italian holiday, wished we stayed longer. We had the suite which offered 2 balconies with amazing views.

This is a modern hotel right in Piazza Cavour on the lakeside. It is very well located at the edge of the old city and across from the boat landing for the boats up the lake. It is a modern hotel, with adequately sized rooms. Very clean. The breakfast buffet was good and even had soy milk which my husband needs. The real plus, besides the location, was the staff which was warm and extremely friendly. They readily answered our every question and were always ready to help. We had to get from Como to Malpensa airport near Milan (no direct transportation) and they looked up the schedules for us with no problem. The hotel is within walking distance of everything, the boat landing (1 minute), the train station (5 minutes on the clock), the Duomo, old town. I would definitely recommend it.

My wife and I stayed for 4 nights at this hotel with unbeatable location. We had a lake view room on the 5th floor. Just beautiful. Loved the renovated rooms and the breakfast was great with lots of variety. Definitely worth the money to get a better room.

Room Tip: High floor Lake View
