We stayed at this hotel for two nights at the end of a trip to lake Como. Our room was pretty standard for a hotel in this price range, but our view of the lake from the 4th floor was spectacular. The staff were quite helpful at different times. The only disappointment for me was the quality of the breakfast area and the food. The breakfast options were ok, but not great. The breakfast room itself felt crowded and quite dated. Overall, it was a reasonable place to stay with its major asset being a fantastic location.

This is part of a hotel in central Como overlooking the attractive Piazza Cavour towards the lake. The tables on the elevated front ( protected by glass panels) are small and don't encourage larger groups. We had Insalata Nizzarda and Club Sandwiches, both plentiful, fresh and tasty. The service seemed a bit rushed (two waiters to cope with inside and outside) yet efficient. A place to be recommended.

Great location with a beautiful view of Lake Como. Located very well for walking about this wonderful area. Rooms are small but adequate. We did not dine at the hotel as there are so many options within the area. I would return to this hotel as the staff was welcoming and friendly.

Stayed: May 2018

My room was on the fourth floor at the front with a fabulous view of the square in front and the lake itself. The room was a good size and the bathroom had a shower over the bath, unfortunately the hand held shower head hook was broken and it had to be held by hand to be used. That was my only complaint, the tv was excellent and had English stations as well as the usual (boring) CNN. The room had a balcony with a small table and two chairs. The breakfast was more than adequate, with nice tablecloths on the tables. The staff were friendly and helpful. The metro and buses and ferries were all really close and the railway station just over 1 km away. You must do a ferry trip to Bellagio and take the funicular up the mountain nearby. Many restaurants nearby.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the lake

We stayed two nights at he Barchetta Excelsior and enjoyed the experience very much. Our room faced the lake and we really enjoyed the fabulous location. The hotel is not the newest or most modern, but the friendly staff and over all cleanliness of the property make up for the squeaky floors and 60's era decor. The hotel restaurant (Bistro and American Bar) is very good and the staff there is professional and helpful. I would definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: Choose a lakefront room for sure! Preferably one with a balcony.
