We stayed at this hotel for a short Spring break. The staff were inordinately helpful and I have nothing but praise for them. However the facilities left much to be desired. Our room was positively minute and the bathroom whilst just about adequate in size had a tiny corner entry shower. My wife and I are both quite slight in stature but anyone being even a little above average size would have had great difficulty getting in the shower and would not have been able to move around once in. There was no complaint regarding cleanliness. The bar was always closed because of a staff shortage and although the reception staff did their best to serve drinks from the very limited stock available the situation was far from ideal. The hotel is located in a somewhat dingy area with very few restaurants close by and it is a fair hike to the town centre. The breakfast buffet was quite adequate and the whole package was competitively priced but I would recommend paying extra for a hotel with better facilities nearer the town centre and it's restaurants.

It was pretty good and cosy, but in general the room is small, as well as the bathroom. The windows are two in the room but also small, closed by jalousie and uncomfortable to open them. It was cleaned every day. The breakfast is simple, but a lot of sweets, bread, cereals, etc. there were no vegetables. Check out time is early at 11.00 what was not comfortable.

Handy location just before the Swiss border. Like the family room 1 main door two bedrooms..good for teenagers. Breakfast good value for Monday. Bathroom worked well bit crAmped and could have been cleaner. Parking difficult.

Great hotel in Como town. Set back from main part of the lake , but only a 12 minute stroll centre and cathedral. Rooms spotless, complimentary breakfast and staff wonderful. Really friendly place to stay. A few bars and restaurants in immediate area. Also a Carrefour supermarket about 5 mins walk. Cannot fault location and welcome.thank you

It is not so easy to find a good hotel in the Como lake area in November, since many hotels close down for the winter season. We decided to stay in Best Western Continental and we were not disappointed. It is a very nice hotel with comfortable rooms, garage, wifi, good location, great breakfast. We even had a very nice view from the room. The staff were very kind and always ready to help. I must say I do not understand the bad reviews. The rooms and the hotel look absolutely the same as in the pictures. Como is a lovely place and a great base to explore the lake. We were very satisfied with our stay. Recommended!

This hotel was a short walk from the San Giovanni train station. When you walk out of the train station, you walk straight ahead, down a set of stairs, cross the street at the street light, walk about a half of block and take a right into what looks like an alley. The hotel is about a block down this alley/street. A very easy walk that takes about 5 minutes. The Best Western is located about a 10 minute walk from the lake and other attractions, but out of the chaos and noise of the street traffic. We had a king bed room and found the room to be a comfortable size. There was a view of the Cathedral from the bathroom window. I know, who stands in the bathroom to take in the view; however, at night the Cathedral is lit and it was a nice view. Other than that, there is not a view. The room was a good size, clean, quiet, with a convenient location. They had a good buffet breakfast for 3 euro. The staff was very helpful and friendly. All-in-all, this is a good choice when visiting Como.

Stayed here as part of a group of 7. After reading mixed reviews we turned up not knowing what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised. Lovely comfortable bed with good pillows. Lots of clothes storage and mini fridge. Also air- conditioning, just as well as it was still pretty hot for October. Our bathroom was nicely tiled with cubicle shower. Little selection of toiletries for those who may have forgotten something. Buffet continental breakfast was vast in way of choice. Mini chocolate croissants are to die for. We were glad to find there was a small selection of breakfast items that we're gluten free that were suitable for my sister who sometimes struggles. On the whole, a great stay in Como for a very reasonable price.

Not the most modern but service is excellent and at any time of the day. Rooms are clean and neat but deco needs to be freshened up. Good location and wide choice at breakfast. Staff is very helpful and Polite.

As we planned to arrive around 6:30pm, unfortunately, there was traffic jam from Luzcern to Como (by Flix Bus), maybe it was Friday, many people drive to Milano. finally, we arrived at train station around 8:30pm, . Within 10 min from train station (Como San Giovanni Train Station), Hotel was not located in the centre of Como and quiet area, but around 15 min to centre. The room was little bit old, there was no kettle. The breakfast is standard buffet. Luggage was just left in the hotel lobby, without any luggage tag issued.

Stayed in this hotel for 4 nights.... double room - the room was soo small you couldn't swing a mouse in it never mind a cat!!! We had a wedding - i needed to iron a few shirts - in order for me to get the ironing board in the room i had to kneel on the bed to use it!!! Breakfast was extra and horrible too..... never seemed to have much and what they did have wasn't ateable in my opinion. I would NOT stay here again - not even for free The bed was like sleeping on a slab of concrete - located on a busy road
