“A comfortable place to stay”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

I stayed in Borgovico for one night. The room was spacious and it was nice and clean. The bathroom looked quite new and very clean which I always appreciate.

The rooms do not have a great view which is due to the location of the hotel and it is about 15 - 20 mins walk to centre which I didn't mind as I could walk most of it along the lake. The breakfast was good and I liked their coffee. The staff were helpful when I asked them about train times etc.

Overall a pleasant stay.

Great little hotel for what I wanted. Good sized single room with a double bed. Good sized bathroom, all very clean and everything worked well. The breakfast was a good typical buffet breakfast but very adequate for a day of travelling. In a nice quiet street close to the ferries to the other towns. Would definitely stay here again if I'm lucky enough to get to Como again.

Room Tip: I was travelling with my cousin and she had a room on a different floor. Both our rooms were very q...

Clean rooms, nice bathrooms within easy walk of San Giovanni railway station. Via Borgovico is a reasonably quiet street with several good restaurants, bakeries, cafes, and bars. Hotel staff were welcoming and helpful; breakfast is typical buffet for Italian hotels of this caliber; small bar has grappa, etc for late night drink. Hotel is about 10 minute walk to lake front and old town center.

Nice sophisticated , well maintained property. Relaxed atmosphere, lovely little hints at the heritage of the property in ways of leaving walls bare in small areas , found it very interesting!
Rooms are small but well maintained, good modern bathrooms. Good mix of comfort and staying true to the beautiful town. Staff if friendly, breakfast was decent...and the Lake is 10 min walk, one of the main train stations is also 5 min away.
Can come here again for sure!

Very classily done up property....has a hilly cottage feel. Excellent rooms and bathrooms. Extremely friendly, polite and helpful staff, typical of a small town like Como, very unlike the usually brusque big towns. Loved our stay.

We stayed in this hotel for one night as an inexpensive place from which to base our exploration. The room was really small but immaculate and modern. Even the bed, which didn't look comfy, was perfectly lovely and cozy. The complimentary breakfast was delicious, and was more than just pastry and coffee! The staff was incredible, spoke English well, and helped us map out our day. They even made calls to tour companies for us to get our more complex questions answered. They held our bags ALL day, called a Taxi for us (just a 7 Euro trip to the Train Station) and made our last day in Como excellent. An 8 minute walk to Ferry station and 15 minutes to main Piazza. A perfect inexpensive hotel!

Rather disappointing this hotel which with a few small changes could be a lot better.
It is convenient for and just a few minutes walk from the station, but about 15 minutes walk from the main town and lake area. However there are some nice restaurants a short walk away and some in the same street.
The niggles. The room we had was very dark and needed more lights. The access stairs were also very dark even in the daytime, apparently they are on a timer but they need to be on all the time for safety. It was dusty under the bed, I didn't go checking this but I had to retreive something that rolled under there. Finally the provisions/toiletries were the most minimalistic with just two small shower/shampoo gels and nothing else. These were not always replaced either and I had to go and ask for them on one occasion.
Despite the niggles, the staff are all (except one) extremely friendly and helpful. The room we had was well decorated, the linen was very good and the bathroom was to a high standard.
Hence with just a few changes this hotel could jump a star in my rating.
Until they change a few basic things I could not recommend it.
