“The most terrible hotel I have ever been”
Reviewed 1 August 2013

The only good thing in this hotel was the location. Everything else was terrible. Never chose this hotel to stay in Como. They do not accept credit card, only cash. There was not hot water in the bathroom which was located in the entrance hall and we should go out of the room to use it. There was not TV in the room, wi fi was too slow to use it. The breakfast was served in the bar in 5 min walking distance and was 1 croissant and coffee. There are not reception service after 5 p.m. so you have to call the owner for check in. The elevator is small and claustrophbic, better not to use it. This hotel has not been renovated since it was built.

Room Tip: Never stay at this "hotel"

A very good location, near the centre and the lake. The building is not well identified so a little difficult to locate. A friend and I had 2 rooms with a shared bathroom. The rooms were quite nice but the bathroom appears to be only half renovated with a shower curtain covering a back wall, no window covering and all in all not very pleasant to use. My bed was very comfortable but my friend did not find hers very comfortable at all. The area we had also had a small common area which led onto a balcony and we were advised when we arrived that this whole floor which had its own entry was all ours but we weren't there very long when the entry door was unlocked, someone walked in without any explanation and removed some towels from a cupboard and left??? The breakfast was very poor, at the bar on the corner across from the hotel, and consisted of a croissant and coffee. Expect a much better breakfast from a B & B. The reception area is also not very inviting and you can only pay in cash. Also, sound proofing probably non existent. This is a great building in a very convenient location and could be a fantastic place to stay but definitely needs some work to get it right. Wouldn't stay there again.

The B&B is near the history center and the restaurants by the lake edge (just 5min walk). We had the Maryline room: it was clean, and the bed very confortable. We also had a balcony. However, the bathroom was not directly in the room but next, even if it was a private bathroom. It is not very useful. The staff man was a little weird. You do not feel safe with him even if we do not have any problem. But he is not always at his desk, so for the check-in you can wait for him a while.

Room Tip: before the chek-in, call or send an email to the staff to tell your arrival hour. Otherwise you can...

(+), Location is good, just across the rail tracks and you are at the Opera and Cathedral. There is a lift (tiny one, 3 people max) up to third floor. Wi-Fi was good and there is also a parking place for 5euro per day. Maurizio is very nice, friendly and he does his best to help you.

(-) No reception, you have to call an Italian mobile phone. No credit card, only cash. We booked and paid for the studio (since a family with a young kid), but when we got there, we were told that the boiler was broken and the flat was flooded. We didn’t receive any email about this change. So they put as in a double bed room with the bathroom outside the bedroom in a shared flat (one entrance but two different bedrooms). Anyway, we didn’t’ have another option, so we accepted it (for the same price, they only offered the parking for free, 3 nights x 5euro= 15euro “compensation”). The first day till next morning, no heating and no hot water, so no shower, not able to clean the 2 years old kid either. Next day they fixed it, lasted for 2 days, and on Monday (check out day), it was broken again, so no shower once more. The room was small, no TV, they were kind enough to bring us a microwave to warm up the kid’s milk and a small fridge to keep the milk cool, but it didn't work so we left everything on the balcony (temp around 4-7 degrees end of March). I think this is a budget place, where everything is dated, and not working properly. But heating and hot water is a MUST. Most likely we are not going back, as this wasn't a place for us. By the way, also breakfast is very poor, just a coffee with a croissant.

The location could be the best you can find in Como, near the Duomo and a 5 minute walk to the lake. The host was really friendly helpful and you should try is restaurant with great food, wine at affordable price. Everything was perfect.The breakfast was really good too.

Althought the location was good and the rooms spacious, nothing else was good. The electricity went out our first night which also meant no hot water for a shower. The breakfast was just sad and the towel situation was ridiculous. They don't even give you a bath mat so the floors were all wet and slippery after a shower. I would strongly recommend some changes and disclosing more about the property before marketing this to people.

Basically my experience looks like the latest comment. Although my friends spoke several times to the owner before booking, nobody was aware that rooms hadn't private bathrooms. Nowhere I saw any notice or warning that the breakfast was outside: just a coffee and a croissant in a common bar nearby! No wardrobe, just one towel for person and the last night we couldn't get nor find any additional toilet paper: is that what I get for 90 euros a night? Never again. Generally speaking, good position but it fell short of all expectations and my experience was very disappointing.
