Ideally located overlooking the square (Piazza Cavour) and the lake. You are 5 minutes walk from the Como Nord Lago railway station, 2 mins from the lake ferry departure points, and 2 from the Duomo (cathedral). Around you is the historical, tourist part of Como - perfect.
Lovely spacious room with views over the lake (at the front) and the funicular (at the side). Large double bed. Clean sheets every day. Spacious room. Bath as well as shower. First class breakfast in a room with a lake view - wide choice, including chopped fresh fruit (kiwis, mangoes, etc etc), and very efficient staff. The hotel is not an attractive building but the neighbouring buildings around are nicer to look at. There are some cafes/bars on the side of the square, and buses go right past the hotel on 2 sides, but the double-glazing/soundproofing is good.
Shame that they charge so much for use of the hotel wifi. [You can use the free Como wifi, in the square in front of the hotel, but not inside the hotel.]
