Liked: The secureness of the property and the directions given from the train station were absolutely spot on. As others have mentioned the breakfast buffet is excellent. Apparently they house foreign exchange students for the local university consequently there are a lot of folks participating in the breakfast buffet. Students are from all over the world. Bathrooms immaculate.

19 March 2010 Frances would recommend this property

Liked: We love that it is right next to the lake and walking distance from the Duomo and all the lovely bars and restaurants... and the bus station. We could also park our hire car there easily which in Como is a bonus. The guy behind the desk is always helpful. The room we were in was very clean. We haven't tried to eat at the bar downstairs yet though. This was the second time we have stayed here and we will definitely be going back.

Liked: In particolare ho apprezzato la pulizia delle camere e dei bagni, la disponibilità del personale e la posizione, vicina sia al lago che al centro. Lo consiglierei sicuramente a chiunque volesse soggiornare a como per un po' di giorni. I lati negativi sono stati l'assenza di un locale cucina in cui poter anche solo scaldare il cibo e quella di uno spazio comune.
