I booked this property at the last minute, and for once didn't check out the Trip Advisor reviews before booking. Maybe it's better that I didn't! This place has horrendous reviews - it sounds like we were lucky not to have had the same experiences as some other guests. We had an okay experience - nothing amazing, but not terrible either. To give you a run down:
- Great location, just a few minutes from the lake, the ferry terminal the cathedral and shopping/restaurant streets.
- The apartment was more spacious than we were expecting - for four of us we got a kitchenette, dining area, bathroom with washing machine, double bed and then a loft area with spiral staircase with another double bed up there. Plenty of room for our group.
- Very cheap price for what we got - value for money
- Staff member was not particularly friendly or welcoming of us to Como. Customer service obviously isn't his strength! Was only concerned about collecting our money, not being helpful or offering suggestions for exploring the town.
-Apartment was up about three flights of stairs with no lift - this could be a problem for some guests. This is stated on the booking website though.
- Kitchen utensils etc weren't fully stocked, for example we had no sharp knife and no wine glasses, which was a shame. When buying some wine at the supermarket, we'd just assumed because the apartment had a kitchen it would be fully equipped.
- Could have been cleaner.
Overall, it is what it is. A basic, cheap, no frills place to stay. Just don't expect any service for the cheap room rate!
