Liked: A very convenient place - just next to the lake, old town and many nice places to have dinner at.

Disliked: The bathroom cannot be used after 10, the room was somehow tiny. The price was a bit higher compared to other faciities (for the standard of Italy).

Liked: close to the city centre, very clean rooms

Liked: In Riva al Lago was a perfect place to stay in Como and great value for money. My sister and I arrived in Como after staying the previous night in a 8-bed hostel dorm and were told that we had been given a free upgrade into a private double room with a private bathroom which was fantastic. The room was impeccably clean and towels were provided. The building was perfectly situated, a five minute walk to the lake, 15 to the boat terminal and ten to the funicular, surrounded by fab restaurants in all directions. The staff were friendly and helpful. The weather wasn't great for our visit but I hope to return to Como in the summer and will definitely stay at In Riva al Lago again

Disliked: There was nothing I disliked, but if you are looking to stay somewhere with nice views of the lake, this may not be the hotel for you.
