“Very Good Stay”
Reviewed 5 May 2012

We stayed for three nights and I'll start with the only detraction: Our room was too hot. The A/C was not yet switched on for the season and we stayed in a second floor room that was quite small and had only a door out to a shared balcony. As such, we couldn't leave the door open at night to cool the room, and it quickly became stuffy and too hot, compromising our quality of rest. This would normally be a deal breaker for me, but we still liked this hotel for a variety of reasons: First, the front desk staff were excellent and proactively helpful, offering solid recommendations for dining (ignore their suggestions for affiliated restaurants and ask for other ideas) and guidance about the trains in and out of town. Secondly, the hotel was well-located and walkable with carry-on luggage from the train station. It was also very quiet with the occasional klutz hammering up and down the metal stair case. In addition, the room was clean. Finally, the highlight was breakfast. Cereal, eggs, juices, fresh fruit, and pastries. A proper way to start a day of sight seeing. Advice: We booked through a third-party web site, so breakfast cost us an extra 10 euros a day. We learned on checkout that booking directly with them would have given us a lower rate and breakfast included in our price. Do note this.

Room Tip: Make sure your room has a window that you can open to get fresh air and to cool the room for better...

We stayed for the weekend in April 2012 in this little hotel and liked it a lot. Unlike the few hotels at the lake which look all a little bit shaby we found this hotel newly renovated and very stilish. A great plus is the that the hotel is located in the heart of the Centro Storico whith all attractions in the old town in walking distance. We also liked the small but lovely breakfast buffet. We will surely return!

Reviewed 7 April 2012

as we were doing a road trip with some friends in northern italy, we decided to stop in como. We chose that hotel because it was one of the last one which was available for us. We weren't really convinced at first because boutiques hotels are not realy the kind of places we are fond of. When we arrived there, they gave us a suite instead of a 3beds room because of bookings troubles for the same price. This litlle boutique hotel was totally new, modern and cosy. It's located in the old downtown of como. In the area, all the streets are pedestrian: very nice to walk around in this very beautiful town.

The staff and people working at the reception were very nice and helped us booking restaurants and boat trip on the famous lake. I would definitely come back in that hotel next time i come in this city.

The hotel should maybe find solutions for people coming with cars. If you let your car in aparking, you ll be paying around 30euros a day, which is quite much! Otherwise, everything was perfect!

Room Tip: Ask definitely for a suite! Don't hesitate about asking people at the reception for restaurants...

Reviewed 31 March 2012

Although the location, right in the heart of Como's old town, is great and the beds are comfortable, the concrete floors, plastic furniture, and noisy metal staircase (think stairs meant for ski boots) were not to our taste. WiFi and breakfast were costly extras. Apparently if you book directly with the hotel breakfast is included. Evidently they pass on the cost of using an internet booking site directly on to the customer by adding extra for breakfast. We left feeling like this hotel is not very good value for the money.
