This hotel is situated in a very good location. It is surrounded by shops and various restaurants, take outs like Mac Donald's and also a pharmacy close by. The train station is also located round the corner. This hotel is highly recommended if one is thinking of visiting neighboring villages such as bellagio, varenna etc since the boat trip to...

When me and my girlfriend next visit Como which we hope to do in the Summer of 2014 we will 100% stay at the Barchetta Excelsior again. It is centrally located and within easy walking distance of all the local bars, restaurants and attractions, you genuinely could not hope for a better location. The room was excellent and extremely comfortable,...

We stayed here in early October, 2013. Our room was at the back of the hotel, which disappointed us at first.

I can't imagine a better location in Como for a hotel. We had a lake view room which overlooked the lovely Piazza Cavour and had an amazing view of the lake. Ferries leave from just across the piazza, and many other beautiful sights in Como are just a short walk away. I had hesitated about choosing this hotel over the...
