Stayed here for 3 nights. Rooms with a lake view are awesome. Location is perfect. On a square with some restaurants and right opposite the lake where the ferries take off. Dinner at the bistro was top notch and of course the staff was one of the friendliest I have met. Would stay here again.

Our first room was disappointing being at the back (and still fairly noisy) but clean and a reasonable size. We requested a move to the front of the hotel to a (more expensive) room with a balcony for the second and third nights of our stay and this was managed well by the friendly and professional staff. Location is great...

Dear Guest, thank you for your review. Your compliments are greatly appreciated as also your comments, that will enable us to improve our services. Please note that during your stay, breakfast was served at the Bistrò as a temporary measure, due to the refurbishment of our lake-view breakfast parlour on the first floor. Therefore our rich buffet maybe lacked a...

This hotel is in a wonderful location, close to the lake overlooking a piazza. We had a lakeside view in a very comfortable room with balcony. Not sure the AC would work very well in the summer, but we slept with the balcony door open so no problem other than noise emanating late at night from the piazza (revellers). The...

Hotel Barchetta Excelsior is a mid-range hotel where the staff is friendly and very accommodating. The rooms, which have views of the beautiful Lake Como, are expensive but properly managed despite the age of the building. Internet access is limited and very expensive. The breakfasts are good. However, the evening meals were excellent and the service in the restaurant-bar is...

What a fantastic hotel. The location was absolutely perfect. The hotel itself was spotless. So very pleased with all they had to offer. The breakfast had quite a bit to offer and the room had a perfect view of the lake. Would certainly stay there again if travelling back to Como.

The location of La Barchetta is with no doubt excellent, the fron desk service also. The breakfast can not be classified as excellent, but rather as mediocre standard. The room although with a great view smelled horribly (Room #569) and was overheated. Above all I think that a hotel in that category should not dare to offer 40min. internet access...
