Hotel is walking distance to all Como. Clean and helpful staff. Good room size. Breakfast was included and was very good. Wi-Fi internet was very slow, good only to get mail. Towels were just enough, could have used an extra one. Overall, at good price, I would recommend it.

It is the cheapest place to stay in Como and in an excellent location to access the train station and the lake. Lovely views out to the Church and mountains too. The hotel is very clean and was visited daily by the maid. The only downside in August is the lack of air conditioning in the attic room, although the fan did provide some relief from the 35 degree heat.
Superficially an ideally situated place but noisy. Hotel front desk over assertive and aggressive in contrast to charming and helpful room staff. A demand for payment upon entry was most surprising as the hotel held credit card particulars beforehand. The hotel senior staff might benefit from 'charm school'. It is a hotel that but for its noise problem has the potential to excel.
"A lovely hotel with very helpful & friendly staff"
Our room was a good size and kept very clean by the chambermaids.
We ate in the restaurant every day. Breakfast was a feast: everything you could imagine (even chocolate cake!). Our breakfast set us up for a hard day of sightseeing! We ate our evening meal at the hotel almost every night, mainly because they produced a very interesting, tasty and varied menu every day.
The staff were always on hand to answer our questions, suggest interesting places to visit and generally make our stay a very happy time.
My family all enjoyed our stay at the Barchetta Excelsior very much. The rooms were in good order with excellent air conditioning. The towels and sheets were changed every day, which was great as the weather was so hot. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. The location was the best we could have asked for - right near the ferries and the Duomo. We would definitely stay at this hotel again.
Excellent hotel with brilliant staff, who were so helpful and attended to our every need with a smile. One lady in reception in particular was superb, and even remembered our room number when we asked for the key!! Breakfast was very good and the waiting staff in the dining room were really very efficient.
