This hotel is typical of European hotels in 'the old city' areas - small rooms, tired decor.....however, this hotel is an exceptional 'stand out'. The staff were very friendly and helpful with great local tips (including being able to buy tickets for the funicular up to Brunate at the hotel to avoid the queues at the station). And they make a great cappuccino as well! After 3 days we felt like a part of the family. The room was comfortable and an easy walk to the piazza, promenade and train station. The hotel is easy to find from the street and a great base to explore the Lake Como region. This hotel is located almost on the edge of the lake and a short walk to main piazza in the old city. It is within walking distance of Como San Giovanni train station (there are some steps to navigate). Buy a Day Pass on the lake and head to Bellagio and Vareena, or up to Brunate via the Funiculare.

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.
