4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

It is situated right in the centre of Como. You can walk from it to just everywhere. Parking is a block away in a hotel nearby and is convenient nevertheless. Rooms: A bit dated but very comfortable. Bedding is good. Toilette is perfectly adequate. TV selection is also good. Facilities: I didn't have the breakfast included in rate so I can't say. Wifi was free and of quality. The hotel has good and helpful staff, and there are dozens of restaurants and cafes within easy walking distance enabling you to enjoy Como. You can even walk to the Foniculare to get a wider view of Lake Como and surroundings. I would recommend this hotel without hesitation.

Room very clean, clean sheets every day. Beautiful view. Staff very helpful. Excellent breaķfast. Ideal situation in centre of Como, close to shops, bars and restaurants. This hotel is beautifully run,something you dont find very oftern in this modern age where the customer is the main priority. Carry on with this fantastic service. We will be back again.

Spent 3 days here for Christmas. The location of the hotel is perfect with its view over the gorgeous lake. There was a skating ring and the Christmas markets in the square directly in front of the hotel before the lake. We had a junior suite at the top of the building which was spacious and nicely done. It was a little cold but beautiful clear blue sky every day. Enjoyed a lovely Christmas eve meal in their dining room. Recommend Lake Como at Christmas with the lovely laneways and alleyways lit up for Christmas. Very special

checked out of here today. It was super central and has large rooms. The breakfast is good and the beds comfy. We had a room overlooking the water and it was lovely. We had enough pillows without having to ask.

Staying there as a guest of the Noir Film Festival I was truly surprised by the high service standard and the friendly staff ... I certainly hope to come back soon to this enchanting place in amazing city of Como!

We stayed for a week-end in Como and booked the Hotel Barchent Excelsior. Staff is very friendly, rooms are clean and have everything you need for a good stay. Perfect location, just in front of the lake, behind the central place and as it was Christmas, just in front of the market. We enjoyed the stay. The price is excellent, we will be back again!! See you soon there

The hotel is nice, the room is spacious, the terraces are outstanding, allowing guests to absorb soul-cleansing, picturesque views of beloved Lake Como. Breakfast is ok with room for improvement, staff are friendly. Location is close to walks around the lake as well as to the old city in the back. You're also three minutes away from the train station, which is a big plus.

Upon arrival at the hotel with our Trafalgar group, we were handed our keys to our room. When we entered the room we were pleasantly surprised as were were allocated an a room facing Lake Como - What an amazing view to wake up to each morning. The hotel is very central to shopping & restaurants in the region. Our breakfasts each morning were very filling and enjoyable. Rooms were extremely comfortable

Eleven friends and I had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful hotel in September of this year. We were a group of some old friends and some new and everyone was very pleased with this hotel. The location is superb, overlooking the head of the beautiful Lake Como. Walking distance to wonderful restaurants and shops. We all had a great time in Como and as this was my second visit to the Lake but my first to the town of Como, I can highly recommend this location to all. It is simply beautiful.

Very nice room overlooking beautiful Lake Como. We chose to wander around the area and eat dinner out, however, there was a dining area adjacent to the Lobby. The front desk was staffed by very pleasant people. Was surprised in the morning to see 15 or so canopies across the street in a plaza each with wonderful Italian items like wine, sausages, cheeses, breads, cookies; so wished we could have brought something home. The hotel breakfast was wonderful with many, many choices.
