A short stroll from San.Giovanni railway station you will find the Borgo Antico Hotel. Literally down the steps in front of the station (I'm sure you can walk around if you have a heavy bag... but beware there are quite a lot of steps), then turn left and you are there! Top tip, leave plenty of time to get your return train ticket as there was only one machine working and there were lots of people queuing for tickets.
The hotel is small and perfectly formed. The old building has been beautifully restored with modern touches but still retaining an old world charm. The reception staff were helpful although not overly 'happy'!
The room (304) was very clean with air-conditioning, hair-dryer and safe. This room was at the front of the hotel on the one-way street side. It was silent and there was no need to open the window as the air-conditioning was working perfectly.
The breakfast room was very clean and the service was excellent. A good choice for a light continental breakfast... you could also boil your own eggs.
Would definitely recommend this hotel as Como is so small it only takes a maximum of 10 minutes to walk to the lake and the town centre.
