“Reasonable value”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

I stayed here as a single traveller in August 2013 and found the room really clean, the bunk bed was comfortable and the shared bathroom was modern and very clean. The staff was friendly and the breakfast was delicious.
My only concern was that I didn't feel really comfortable in the area after dark, on my own. I would think as I single female travelling, this is worth thinking about.
Otherwise, it is a good location for the attractions of Lake Como, for catching the boats and for the Funicular.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. You made some very good points of which we would like to address.

We’re glad you found our room really clean and the bed comfortable. We take pride in our clean, comfortable budget accommodations. We’re also happy that you found our staff and the breakfast to your liking as well. Our location is one of the best in Como – only steps from the boat dock that can take you to the many enchanting villages of Lake Como, and steps to the cable car that takes you up to Brunate to get a breathtaking birds-eye view of the lake.

The safety and security of our guests is very important to us. Did you know that we have 23 security cameras installed in and around our property? However, we understand your point about walking alone on the street after dark. Como is a vibrant city and many people remain outdoors very late. We would like to remind our guests to be cautious wherever they vacation. No special precautions are required in Como as it is considered a safe place – even after dark.

Please come back to visit us – and bring a friend!

We felt very welcomed and staying at the guesthouse is worth while. The breakfast is good and offers a great variety of choice, we especially loved the brie and mozzerella. From the guesthouse you can make a beautiful walk around the lake and explore Como. The rooms are nice and clean, airco works great and we slept very well. Thanks for the stay!

Nice B&B at a good location, close to boardwalk and funicular (gorgeous views on the lake from Brunate). We stayed there 1 night last summer with friends during our trip around Italy. Nice and clean room, shared bathroom was clean as well. Very good breakfast, the best I had in Italy. The stuff was really nice, helped us with parking. They also have a little restaurant downstairs with very tasty food and good prices, it is worth trying. Highly recommend this place!

Thank you for your wonderful review! We loved having you and hope you and your friends visit us again on you next trip to Como. Our breakfast is a big hit with most of our guests and we’re certainly glad you enjoyed it. Also, thank you for complimenting the staff. We work hard to be as helpful as possible to our guests. As you mentioned, our location is about the best you can get in Como –only 50 meters from the Como Lago Nord train station that can take you to Milan for a shopping trip or 50 meters to the boat dock that can take you up Lake Como to enjoy its beauty or, as you said, a few steps to the funicular that takes you to enjoy Brunate’s breathtaking views. Again, thank you for your kind comments and please come visit us again soon.

This B&B was little hard to find first but location was good. Owner was very friendly and service very good. Owner gave us also few good tips where to visit. Rooms and showers were clean and quite comfortable and there were also free wifi included. Exellent breakfast and this place is exellent value for money.

Well a little hard to find the entrance but its basically in the middle of the El Merendero restaurant.

On arrival friendly owner greeted us and showed us to our nice clean double room with ensuite and airconditioning.

Yes there are 4 levels of stairs to the top rooms but easy if your mobile, rooms are newly decorated and spacious enough. We had a rear room looking out over neighbouring roof tops nice and quiet room G1.

Owner was very friendlyand helpful and offered advice on transport, ferries, sightseeing and even booked us a taxi to take us to the centrale station in the morning.

Yes the hotel is right near the bus station and the nord lago train station, not the giovani station, if you arrive at giovani station take the number 4 bus to lago bus station.

Would recommend this nice clean basic value for money B&B.

Stayed in room in annexe with shared bathroom. Very clean but spartan. Beds made during the day, bins emptied. Bathrooms are excellent recently renovated and spotless. Hearty breakfast included. Good location and value for money. Free Internet.

Room Tip: Avoid bunk beds. 54 steps involved to room in annexe.

We had a 4 night trip round Lake Como and chose this B&B as our first stop in Como itself. Check-in was easy and we were able to do so 30 minutes early. The guy at reception was very helpful and gave us a quick tour of the hotel and its facilities.

I'd say it perhaps had a slight hostel feel to it, but this is no bad thing and everything was perfectly clean, the bunk beds were extremely comfortable and we both slept very very well.

We were pretty pleased with our stay when we woke up the next morning but there was still one last surprise to come - breakfast. It was FANTASTIC and probably rates as one of the best breakfasts we had on the trip, including some in much more expensive hotels. The selection was very extensive and it was all fresh.

So if you're coming to Como and you're on a budget (or even if you're not) I'd recommend this place to anyone.
