“Great Hotel!”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

Stayed here for three days. Close to the Como San Giovanni train station. The room was a nice size, great bathroom with a large shower, and a plus, had an elevator. A twenty minute walk to Lake Como and the sights. The included breakfast had a great selection.

Stayed in May 2014.

Great experience, especially our housekeeper would introduced herself to us and told us if we needed anything to let her know (in perfect English). We felt comfortable for our 2 night stay. Our room was kept very clean. The walls of the rooms could use a little TLC due to some scuff marks.
Breakfast was good, could add a hot item.

We enjoyed staying away from town center, but less than a 10 minute walk to the center, lake, and train station.

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and hope to return sooner rather than later.

Room Tip: As for a 2nd floor room - we had a corner that looked out the side and pack of the property, and eve...

What a delight this hotel was to stay in. An old building that has been refurbished well, it is a short stroll from the town centre and S.Giovanni station. Our room was fairly well sized with a comfortable bed and a modern bathroom with a great shower. Double-glazed windows to keep out any noise was an added bonus. Staff were friendly and helpful, breakfasts were plentiful and 24 hour reception was also handy. Would definitely recommend.

Really liked this little hotel. The rooms are small but comfortable and cute. Looks like they have been newly appointed. The bed was exceptionally comfortable with a lovely soft white quilt - refreshing after the dubious looking bedspreads we had encountered in other Italian hotels. Breakfast was nice and staff in the dining room and reception friendly. It was walking distance to the train station although be warned there were stairs and cobblestones on the way. The rooms on the street side were a bit noisy with traffic at night. The rooms tended to be quite warm and opening the window meant an increase in noise. The ones at the back were quieter. It would appear that the hotel is being extended as there was building works going on directly adjacent to our bedroom but it did not bother us.

Room Tip: Choose one at the back so that you don't have street noise.

I am really disappointed. I read the reviews here and I thought this hotel would be a good option. The hotel just "missed" the little detail of informing us that the house beside is under construction from 06.00. It is very noisy and uncomfortable. My relax plan was just a dream!

Dear Jose,

we are very sorry if you didn't find what you expected but we are not responsible for the house beside that's under construction. In any case you won't here so much noise with the windows closed and using air conditioning if needed. Anyway, usually thay start working at 8.00 a.m.

Best regards

Carlotta

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.

Borgo Antico is on a small street a short distance from the touristy town center and a great place to base yourself in Como. The room we had was clean, updated, and very comfortable and even though we were on the street side of the building the double pane windows kept any street noise out. It is a short walk to the train station if planning a day trip to Milan. Also a short walk to the ferry docks for the ride to Bellagio or other places on Lake Como.

On the same street we found a great trattoria, (ask at the front desk), a small Spanish restaurant with great food, and a beer bar with some great Italian craft beers.

Breakfast is included and provides a wide selection for you to choose from. The staff working the breakfast room provide tea and coffee service right to your table.

Compared to some of the other hotels we have stayed at while in Italy the price is very competitive and you will not regret staying here.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the small elevator in the event there are some late partiers coming in late...
