“Best value for money in great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

We arrived in Como by car and temporarily parked outside the B&B. Beautiful building with secure entry, with the B&B on the first floor. We were met by a very friendly welcoming and helpful host Camilla, she showed us to our room which was modern, spacious and spotlessly clean with tea/coffee facilities and a very comfy bed!! Then Camilla directed us to a nearby car park (we parked overnight in a roadside car park as we were leaving very early next day and it cost 5/6euros!!) but there are 3 nearby multi story type car parks for around 25/30 euros per day which seems to be the norm. Cavour has a great location by the lakeside and restaurants and definitely the best value for money we have stayed in, in a tourist hotspot! The one slight down side was that our room did not have air con although there was a good quality fan provided, we would recommend and stay again if we are in Como

We chose Residenza Cavour because of its proximity to the lake and to the ferry terminal. We arrived around noon, dropped off our bags and headed t a nearby cafe for lunch before getting the next fast ferry up the Lake. Back before 8pm to find a restaurant nearby. The owner and her daughter live on the floor above and wee very helpful - we could go knock on their door to seek them out. The room was modern and up-to-date,tastefully decorated with period furniture and colors, comfortable bed. Tea and coffee in room, bar fridge in the lobby for our use. Would have been nice to have had breakfast at b&b rather than go to bar for it. But arrangement worked well and bar staff very accommodating. Parking for 20 hours cost about 28 euros. Would go back. Thanks for a nice stay.

Room Tip: We had a room on internal courtyard - very quiet!

I can't really add much to what has been already said about this place: Charming and accommodating hosts; spotless clean room; facilities like kettle, available fridge, tea, tv, wardrobe, nice and new bathroom, comfortable bed, central location, etc.

Only "downsides", just as a piece of information: Because of being so central, finding a parking space is not easy unless paying good money for it. Breakfast is ok in nearby restaurant: choice of coffee, a croissant or another piece of pastry and a juice. A bit noisy, but did not bother us.

On top of it all, we went with a baby and he was very welcome indeed. We'll go back!

Arriving in Como by train, we were delighted to find the B&B only 2 minutes walk from the station
.
The room was large, spotless and very charming. The bathroom looked brand new with splendid shower and thick warm towels.
There was also a kettle in the room for that much needed tea and coffee on return from a day out.
Milk and water can be kept in the fridge right outside the door of your room.

This B&B is in the heart of Como with the boat dock right across the road. Ideal for catching the cruises around the Lake.

Plenty places to grab a bite to eat or drink all around in every direction..

Breakfast was good in the café across the road, coffee and a croissant.

Simona and Camilla were wonderful hosts, making us feel very welcome and offering us ideas to make the most of our short 2 night stay.

There is some noise from the road around 6am when the buses seem to start.

I would thoroughly recommend this charming B&B with the reservation of some road noise.

Room Tip: The Blue room is ideal for two friends sharing. Plenty of space, wonderful comfy beds and a great ba...

Location - Just great. Just a couple of minutes walk from the lake and city centre
Owners - They are very friendly, just living one floor above the rooms. We got great advices from them
Breakfast - Vouchers are given for breakfast in a cafe nearby. It includes coffee/juice and one croissant
The room - Comfortable beds. Very clean room. Very old building with some personality ( I would definitely prefer a room like this over a standart hotel room)
Price - Very good deal compared to the other hotels in the area

The only disadvantage of the rooms is that it was quite loud at night. We could hear every single noise coming from outside at night.

Room Tip: The rooms that have window looking to the main street are very loud

We were blown away by this residenza. The hosts were truly amazing and went above and beyond to make us comfortable. It was a real treat to be staying in a luxury lakeside residence which had a sense of old school Italian living about it with the benefit of hotel facilities.The location was spot on and if we are in Como again, we will definitely book here again. Congratulations on delivering a perfect stay for us!

This lovely 3 room B&B is run by a charming Mother and Daughter called Simona and Camilla. They have decorated their 1st floor apartment with strong stylish paint shades (we chose the blue twin-bedded room), chic modern shower rooms, real wooden floors and comfortable beds. The bedlinen and towels were good quality and bright white. Shower gel and shampoo are provided. A kettle and a selection of teas are provided. A small flat screen TV is mounted on the wall. Our room had French doors opening onto a Juliet balcony. I was very comfortable throughout my stay and only mention the traffic noise for the benefit of light sleepers. You are given breakfast vouchers to redeem at a (very) nearby cafe. Fresh coffee, fresh juice (try the peach or green apple) and pastries were a simple but adequate start to the day. The location (adjacent to Piazza Cavour) is very central and convenient. €110 per night for 2 guests sharing a room is good value for clean and stylish accommodation in such a popular location.
