Highly recommended, this B & B had it all. Centrally located: close to buses, trains, shopping, entertainment, museums and lake. The BEST BREAKFAST was provided & catered for all nationalities! Carmelo and Mario were most engaging & wonderful hosts and helped make our stay memorable. Rooms and bathroom were nice and clean. Thank you Carmelo for all your kindness and...

This hotel is nice and clean, with a good location. The breakfast is good except for the coffee, which is very bad indeed. There are also rules about how many croissants and yoghurts each person can have. Our main problem was that we were told at checkin that guests at the hotel got a 10% discount at their restaurant. When...

Two words: Amaz-ing Breakfast. Meat, fruit, pastries, and juices galore. It's a 10 min. hike from the main como train station (but there's a local station which is right next door) but it's very close to the lake and ferries. This is my second stay here and i was once again satisfied although this time there was construction going on...

I recently stayed here for a few days on a holiday to Lake Como. It's in a great location if you catch the train to Como Lago - you just have to walk out of the train station, turn right and walk past the bus station. The rooms were clean, but are very basic (no TV, and no carpet) and...

Extremely friendly and helpful reception. Close to train station, boat tours, shopping and points of interest. Clean and modern facilities. Great restaurant on site! Secure and private parking close by. Very convenient for day trip to Milan by train. Very good value for the price!

Girlfriend & I stayed at In Riva al Lago in weekend and it was clean and, whilst not glitzy, totally fine for what we were after in a hostel and very central. Best 2 things were: 1) that it was so central - near lake, one street away from supermarket, near bus station, near LeNord Train Station (main train station...

Our stay at In Riva Al Lago went smoothy, except for one thing - the staff made a mistake with our quote, overcharged us and would not offer a refund on that portion of our fee, apologise or negotiate on this front. It's a shame, because it soured what was otherwise quite a pleasant experience. I'm going to focus on...

You get what you pay for and this was no better or worse than the website led us to believe. Breakfast was good too. However the owner/manager was the rudest hotel proprietor I think I have come across. He refused to let us have our passports back and said he did not have time to register them as he was...

Great location for walking to the old city and riding the funiculare up to Brunate, or taking the tour boats on the lake. We booked the four person, shared bathroom, but upon arrival the desk person would not let us stay in that room because we had children. Fortunately they had a room for four with a private bathroom.
