Bed and Breakfast Storico
Ranked #49 of 58 Como B&B and Inns
Reviewed 4 April 2013

The b&b Storico is a cosy albergo located in the historical section of Como within the walls. The room meets all of your requirements and the owner, Marco and Santo can't do enough for you. They provide info about what to do and see in Como and in the other towns around the lake. They provide substantial breakfast, meats, eggs, cheese, juice, coffee etc which gives you a good start to the day. Marco also owns the L'Antica Trattoria which is close by. I can tell you that the meal was perfect. We had tenderloin with pancetta and a fantastic sauce. The server recommended a fantastic wine from this region. We are staying here as I write this review. I highly recommend this hotel.

I had to visit Como for a research collaboration in the area. I was very fortunate to have a local friend find B & B Storico for me. The rooms were very nice and extremely large, especially relative to my other experiences in Europe. The owner was very helpful in working with my early meeting constraints and accomodating my students who were traveling with me. Como is beautiful, the food was great, and B&B Storico allowed me to really relax.

Room Tip: If you have a large party there is a 3 bed room with a full kitchen.

We stayed a week at B&B Storico and had a very enjoyable time. Marco is very enthusiastic to make sure his guests have the best possible experience, and he puts together a nice breakfast every morning. The rooms are spacious, modern, and give good views of the Como streets. The location is great too - just inside the Como wall, it's centrally located between the lake/Duomo and the train station (all are within about a 15 minute walking radius). I imagine you'd have a hard time finding better accommodations in Como for the price. We'd stay here again without hesitation.

Room Tip: I didn't get to see the other rooms, but we stayed on the 4th floor which I think was a bit quie...

My husband and family enjoyed a night at B&B Storico. Owner Marco was very accommodating making our one-night stay enjoyable. He made us espresso as soon as we arrived and the next day when we left he let us leave our luggage in one of the rooms while we did a last-minute train ride to Lugano and back before heading to Milano.

Pros: Location was perfect and rooms were clean and nicely decorated. Owner was very accommodating.

Cons: Bathroom towels are old and room smelled a little musty at first. Maybe because it was raining so hard in the area.

Tip: There is no elevator, however, we had no problem with stairs.

Me and my wife spent just a single night at B&B Storico, but we could experienced a cool atmosphere, very well located, confortable, very clean and cozy room. The owners, Marco and Ticiane are so kind and friendly. The breakfast is simple, but very nice and good quality stuff. If you are looking for full service Hotel, this is not the place, but if you are looking for something afordable and cool, but still with good quality and friendly service, B&B Storico is your option in Como.

We stayed at this B&B for, what we regretted only one night before heading up Lake Como to Bellagio and 4 further days.

Our room, which was the budget double, was perfect and charmingly decorated, and the B&B itself in a lovely location with all of Como's charms in easy walking distance. The room was full of character with exposed beams, view over a typical Como old town street, and up onto the funicular railway. That said, the room was quiet even with the day to day bustle in the morning. The room had plenty of little extras to make our stay relaxing and enjoyable, including a small cupboard with cutlery, plates, glasses. The bathroom was also very nice with a good shower, and also seemed recently decorated to a high standard. Quite rightly the owner, a lovely man, is very proud of his restoration/ decoration

The real star was the owner who was more than helpful and friendly, from pre-arrival emails, through to general local advice, to allowing us 4 days later to store our luggage at his B&B whilst we had an afternoon further exploring Como before heading to Milan. That went beyond the call of duty however is a perfect example of why we always try and use smaller family run businesses for our travel accommodation - he really wanted to make sure we had a great, easy time.

We do now a month on regret only staying the one night given how nice this B&B was, how much we enjoyed the atmosphere of Como, and look forward to retuning and staying longer, using Como as a base for Milan along with the Lake

Given the room rate and all of the above this is probably the best value for money stay we have had

Our stay in storico was not as expected. Ratings on the booking website were very good and we expected something fabulous. It was actually very average as the famed owner was absent. Breakfast place was cramped and the room was just ok.
The location was however very central and makes this an ok choice for A week-end in Como
