The best view to Como lake! Wonderful peaceful little hotel, owners are a lovely couple. A trip from Como town is a real experience recommended for everyone. Car is a must.
The views of the lake and mountains are superb, especially the sunrise Limited evening meals available, but nice resturant nearby. Our room was obviously owned privately and was not very clean, despite being no smoking the room smelt strongly of smokers. The room, plates and cutlery were dirty. Be aware that the bus service from the funicular only runs on Sundays at end of season - there were no signs stating this at the hotel which meant a long steep walk back to the hotel
When we arrived the staff were very attentive and showed us our rooms and offered us complementary drinks. The door to the hallway was difficult to shut and the doors were thin, so any sound in the echoing hallway, including other guests with loud televisions, carried to our room. It was not very quiet.
No information that I could see on the exact location of the hotel. It was about 8km into the mountain.
Location, unbelievable views, corteusness of staff It has sofa beds rather than regular beds. Sofa beds are less comfortable since they have thin mattresses
Great location but no view of the lake. However, it is only a short walk away. Everything else was excellent, including the breakfast.
The view over Como Lake was terrific. The staff is extremely patient and helpful and pleasant. We had a great stay at the hotel. The road to get up there is tricky though. But one can use the Funiculario.
Fantastic location on the top of mauntain. Room is simple, but nice and clean. Very nice quait plase and staf is very friendly. We spet there very good time! I'll recomend this place for romantic trips. Thank you!
Nice View, nice rooms. Long drive from Como
The hotel is beautifully placed, the view from the room is great. Also the manager (owner?) was very nice and helpful. The bathroom floor was covered with the hair (after previous inhabitant probably). Yuck... Also getting to Brunate might be a problem -- there are two roads and our GPS guided us via the narrow path between the buildings... Not for SUVs for sure :)
The location of the hotel is fantastic! True, you have to drive uphill for 7 km, but it is worth that, the picturesque landscape and the wonderful fresh air you get is the best prize. The staff was totally helpful and gave very good suggestions for our future travel.
the view from the balcony was amazing restaurant not open due to staffing problems
The views of lake como and beyond are stunning. Staff really friendly No tea/cofee facility in room
Vista Lago was great! We stayed in October. The price was right. The location was above the main part of Como, but 1 block away from funicular (tram going up/down mountain). We will definately sttay again.
We were pleased to find the hotel - a long climb up - with superb views of Como below. The Sat Nav delivered us to the door - where we awaited a warm greeting. We had dinner there & we eat well - the staff had a good knowledge of wines & stocked some good ones too! We were made very welcome by the staff - who couldn't do enough for us. Well worth the climb out of Como & served very well by the funicular - just some 4/5 mins walk. Do make sure you book your car in if you are staying there. We found it very good value for money
all new - lovely views, friendly staff breakfast was not so good - not much choice but ok. Great coffee!
The Vista. Great view of Como None
The view from the top room was just stunning. The hotel was clean and quite. Breakfast was perfect and the staff where friendly and helpful. The Funicular down to Como is just 100 metres from the hotel and there are a couple of nice places to eat out in close by.
Away from town but next to the funicular makes this the perfect spot. Breah taking views. Wonderful local restraunts.
The view was amazing, really amazing. The room was modern and clean. Brunate is amazing and the hotel is very close to the fernacular so easy to walk with bags. We had the best dinner of our trip (twice actallly) at Bella Vista Restaurant adjacent to the hotel. I think the breakfast could be improved and the walls are quite thin if you have roudy neighbours!
clean, mordern there is no pool, dinner was pricy and not that great.
Very comfortable room , friendly staff , good gym , good restaurant , both for dinner and breakfast . great location for motorway I had to wait 20 minutes before giving up attempting to check out . not enough capacity to handle the number of checkouts when busy
modern room decoration, clean ,well located, friendly staff
A nice, modern hotel with a surprisingly good restaurant. Location is exellent if you travel by car.
Very good Hotel with big parking and nice rooms.
Nice room Room, equipment was good.BUT Our bed was terrible, it was dirty -with blood and hair!!!!!the sheet wasn't changed!
clean, quiet, comfortable, friendly staff bar closed at 11pm! not all facilities operational yet (gym e.g.)
Clean modern and comfortable. Detailed directions from the main roads could be improved.
Clean simple and well-designed faciliies, easily seen from the motorway, large bathroom, good cooked buffet breakfast Location is on a commercial retail park
Cleanliness,decor and parking a big hotel with no proper Restaurant, located in an industrial estate and we found it difficult to locate. A car is a must.
The location of this hotel is one of the best in Lake Como and very close to the 2 Train stations for Como and the docks, our room was overlooking the lake, amazing views, highly recommend it if you visit Lake Como. Pepe Nero Restaurant is the one to go to if you visit Lake Como... No Iron in the room, they charge for ironing starting from 3 euros and up, depending on what you iron. TV was paid and so was internet access and music. Do not be put off though, this is a great hotel, affordable, best location in Como, amazing lake views, spacious and clean rooms and very helpful staff, i would go there again and again...
location is wonderful, hotel staff especially breakfast staff really helpful,old style but comfortable hotel. decoration,needs refurbishing.
We had stayed at this hotel once before and found it met all our needs. The staff is very accommodating and helpful. On our last visit our room overlooked the square and had a balcony and had great views of the lake. On this visit our room faced the lake and was gorgeous. Very attentive staff at the restaurant and the food was great too.
The view Small room, Old bathroom,
Ok, old fashioned hotel. If you're lucky (we were) you get a small balcony facing the square. Good restarurant at hotel, adjacent to square. Uncomfortable bed (pillows), generally ok, but a bit run down and old fashioned. Small bathroom w shower.
Excellent location and fantastic view from room No air-conditioning and road was noisy with window open
Had this hotel been renovated and modernized it would be a jewel because of the perfect location . The windows are new and you can't hear the noise of the traffic outside. The bathroom is fine but the rooms need an upgrade. No carpets please. The location is the best, waterfront and historical center right there. The staff were amazing , friendly and calm. Some parking available. The breakfast was average to disappointing, but we only stayed one night . The room we had needs a designers touch,
The possibity of parking, the staff speak french, the location vue on the lack Anythings
Big beautiful rooms, perfect location, very nice helpful staff. Beds are not very comfortable.
location rooms too small
Central location, beautiful view of the lake. Room was quite small, bathroom in serious need of renovations.
You had to pay for a wifi connection - unbelievable considering how much you pay per night
Great room and facilities perfect
beautiful site of hotel. we had a room overlooking the lawn and a view of the lake. the maitre d'hotel at the restaurant helpfull and efficient. the quality of the bread was not so good. 15 euro per day parking fee felt a bit steep considering the hotel rates;
Bar staff was wonderful, friendly, prompt, attentive etc. Relaxing in the bar was very comfortable and enjoyable.
The location is excellent. Right on Lake Como. Staff was very helpful. Piano bar made the nights much more fun. Great restaurants, we had a fantastic dinner.
Nice hotel and setting I found the hotel very impersonal. We weren't informed about the boat which goes around the lake as a form of transport, when we asked the best way to shops etc., we were told to use a taxi which cost €30 for a short trip. There is a stop for the boat, which is much cheaper to get around and far more pleasant, just in front of the hotel.
We had a marvellous time and were well looked after. The staff were attentive without being pushy.The lakeside restaurant is a particularly idyllic setting. Not a dislike, but a suggestion - an individual daily paper delivered to the room (albeit a day behind if English).
The hotel staff were excellent in all egards. The location was spectacular. The food and bar service were of particular enjoyment. The hotel could use better signage regarding what to do with your car upon arrival. I initially used a pay lot that I thought was connected with the hotel only to learn that the hotel has its own parking structure, but it was not well marked.
The hotels location and the Imperiale restaurant The hotel arranged the transfer back to the airport.It was the most hair raising experiance we have ever had
Great cocktails in beautiful bar Beautiful views of the lake and gardens Very well located close to Cernobbio and Como All services available All amenities were functioning well. Comfortable spaces. Quiet rooms. Outdated style and decoration
The view was what I expected... sweeping views of the lake and mountains from up on a hillside.(if you get a balcony room) We got lucky and did get one. Friendly staff. Clean and the wireless worked well. By U.S. standards the room would be considered sub-par. The mattress was a joke and I could barely turn around in the shower and I'm a skinny man. For a European room it was pretty nice.
The lake view and the new swimming pool Friendly staff restaurant was closed, room was very small and was very expensive
Wonderful view of lake Como. Very nice staff. it takes exactly 15 minutes to walk down to the city... its not that bad but don't book this hotel if you hate walking. Taxi is about 18 euro.
The good service and professionality of the management. We felt very welcome.
We were made to feel very welcome The only complaint was that we could not use the pool. One of the main reasons we booked it (having 4 children) was for them to have a swim.
friendliness of staff , willingness to accomodate
Lovely location, helpful staff, quiet, small rooms -some bathrooms extremely tiny and no baths. Bathrooms
The setting and view was spactacular. The breakfasts were ample and the restrurant was great. The pool area and the pool were kept very clean.All of the staff made you feel that they really appreciated your choosing to stay there. Another nice feature was getting the direct sun rise in the morning. Some of the hallways need updating
Sevice and nice panoramic view Small shower size
The view is great and the swimmingpool is perfect Rooms are too small, shower did not suit for my pregnant wife (too small). The matrasses and beds are too old. Breakfast is too standard. This hotel deserves only a four star for its view, the rest of its services is (far) below a four star quality.
The free use of the bikes was a nice touch - a good way to explore Como. The roof top restaurant was lovely too.
Very warm welcome from most of the staff. The breakfast had a good selection of food and the rooms were very comfortable. Hotel was bit further out than we had been lead to believe and bar closed too early.
The hotel has a swimming pool and a good parking place. The location is too not far from the city centre. The room size and the breakfast (including a high chair for my daughter) are also good.
The location The hotel does not have a good service and quality at this moment everything is close there I mean the solarium, restaurante, swimming pool , they do not have even a bell boy. you only can sleep there. the breakfast is poor although the breakfast time is until 10:30, if you go around 10:00 AM everything is finish.
The staff The location, the environment (a builing in construction nearby), no view of the lake,
The small TV set was so small I could not see it from the bed. It must be the smallest TV in the world.
Good location,free parking,good size room,fair breakfast, efficient service,furniture/equipment new and in good condition.It was one of the few hotels where special requests were actually taken into account(e.g:we were a group and some of us requested twin beds others one double bed and we did get what we asked for) thin walls,view not very enticing:a construction site right in front, wi fi -5euros per hour, no vegetables and just apples for breakfast,lake is quite far from hotel
It is a pretty hotel, very clean, excellent room, good breakfast. Maybe a little bit expensive in the price quality relation. But it would stay again there. A little far from downtown and the lake
Great breakfast. Good base location to explore the lake district. The pool was not heated. The robotic cleaning machine was left in the pool.
The reception staff were very helpful with a great attitude. It is quite far back from the lake side and historical area (a 15-20 minute walk), however, the walk is through the high street and you don't really notice the distance.
Loved the position in Como, close to centre of the town,and found the staff very helpful. We were not in an expensive room but were given a corner room with views over the lake and the mountain. A little tricky connecting with internet.
The location of the hotel is very convenient - it is on the shore of the lake, and 20 meters from the railway station Como Nord Lago, which connects with Cadorna station in Milan. Also there are some nice places to eat nearby as well as the city center. Also the design of the dining room is nice, makes the impression of a real castle! And the breakfast was fine: all the typical buffet food + salmon (which is not common at all for many 4 star hotels) + plate of different kinds of cheese + good selection of fruits! The room was a bit small and nothing special indeed. The dinner was expensive - we were offered 35 euro per person offer (that was already discounted price) including 3 meals from the menu and a bottle of mineral water. At the same time, u can find in nearby restaurants 18 euro per person touristic menu, including also 3 meals.
Staff very friendly, beautiful views of the lake. Room was very small for the price.
good location, great views, staff excellent bed quality was below expectations
Location Reception staff very friendly Room small - not even a desk in a 200+ eur room No free wifi in rooms eventhough advertised (only in lobby free) Breakfast very basic - even an omelette or orange juice has a surcharge of 8 eur. Too crowded in breakfast area due to a too small buffet All in all not worth the price - place would be good for 125 eu max.
Breakfast and the localization. horrible rooms
Nice hotel and i recomended it.
Ease of registration at start and at check out, garage car parking arrangements and efficient car retrieval at end of stay, room with a view of the lake + large picture window. Self service breakfast. Would have liked tea/coffee making facilities in room. Beds are hard. A swimming pool/outside lounger area would be good - other hotels on Lake Como have this facility and it is appealing to tourists.
great location and fantastic view of the lake! the furniture where a little bit dated, but in good condition overall.
arrived late to be greeted by a very helpful night receptionist, n/a
I have booked this hotel for my daughter for her wedding reception Nothing that I know of
Gepflegtes Hotel im alten Stil an bester Lage. Gute Parkiermöglichkeit.
Central location and very nice room for the price. It was quiet, even though our room overlooked a bus stop and main intersection. Very large bathroom for Italy - we had a triple room - and the off street parking was very convenient. Quick check-in and service in the restaurant. Very small television in the room - need to replace with a small flatscreen.
The room was really good for us with four kids (two babies). It was good value for the price considering the breadfast was also included. some people say it is loud. It is not really quiet but it is in the middle of the city and keeping this in mind it was fine.
a typical italian hotel in the centre of everything the restaurant was very good only the manager was not so well dressed every day the same trousrs and sweater.
Charming Central stylish and good food. Nice old style None
Room was comfortable, space was adequate, quiet. Food service was excellent. Water damage stains on ceiling. the tv english channel, CNN did not show a picture--sound was ok
The service was very good. I only stayed one night and I warmly welcomed and accomodated. Could improve the WiFi and internet access.
Quiet and well placed in Como. Bar not open during evening - not sure why.
Good location & comfortable hotel Cleaners missed out parts of bathroom Could not ger a coffee mid afternoon
The restaurant was very good. The hotel was surrounded by one-way streets and it was difficult to go from/to the parking which was actually located in another hotel.
Nice central position with great views of Lake Como and the mountains, convenient for exploring the whole area with good access from airports.
nothing. Breakfast staff were very rude and surly. Accounts charged incorrectly this problem has now been resolved by E.mail.
Very good location. clean room. nice breakfast Hotel need urgently a renovation
lake view room was breath taking it needs renovation
Location, Great Lake view Bec
I found the staff friendly and helpful. Room was comfortable and clean.
good time, good location, helpful staff
the view is fantastic decor tired in rooms and lobby and restaurant/bar , the view saves the day ! comment, the hotels location means they dont have to try and impress ! I guess !
the location and staff were excellent
I loved its location (Barchetta is situated at the central plaza of Como) and the kindness of the hotel's staff. Everyone was very friendly and receptionists gave us very helpful information about the city. The breakfast buffet was not very impressive, given the fact that Barchetta is a 4star hotel.
rooms: it was modern, well decorated, clean. location is at city center. breakfast can be improved. it may include some vegetables. but it is ok.
We liked the central location of the hotel, both to the town, and to the stations. The hotel was clean and well run. The staff were friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was was very good.WE Were extremely happy with our entire stay, so much so that we returned before flying out. Would have appreciated if the bar/coffee bar were open during the day/evening.
noise from ventilation shafts
The hotel was right in the centre of Como, which was perfect.The rooms were nice and clean and had everything we wanted. The staff were professional and helpful. The only thing that let the hotel down was its breakfast. We have been to Italy on numerous occasions and it's the first time we have ever got bad coffee. I didn't think it was possible The coffee was terrible, and the bread rolls were stale, on both mornings which was disappointing (although we were saved by fresh croissants)
Friendly staff. I wanted to exit the hotel to go running at 7am one morning and could not get out (the door was locked). I had to wait 15mins before a member of staff opened the door for me.
close to train station and town, large room (and bed)and bathroom. breakfast was basic and could be improved, hotel internet computer was not working and they didnt seem to care
Location in the centre Was no new soap after room cleaning, very poor breakfast
breakfast and the clean rooms no
its central location and helpful staff
The location, relaxing atmosphere and restaurant The restaurant closes on a Monday and there is nothing of the same quality near by
Fantastic view of the lake, especially at sunrise. Restaurant was amazing. No pool, someone else's hair was in the bathtub, and the parking spots in the garage were almost too small to park in and cost over 20 EUR to park. There are better locations in rthe esort towns with more frequent transportation access.
Nice hotel and nice room The AC didn't work and I told them to fix it and nobody did. Terrible two nights of sleep
Staff were friendly, helpful and the restaurant excellent. Our second stay here.Fabulous views of the lake. car and road noise quite intrusive but little can be done to reduce this.
The view was amazing! Excellent hotel and food. A good 30 minutes walk from the center but worth it.
Perfect view, perfect restaurant When I tried to cancel a second room on my second stay, no discount for variable cost
The location as a direct view to the lake Hotel services
Staff were very friendly and obliging.
cleanliness and firiendliness and helpfulness
Waking up to the view of the Lake, quietness of location. One very snippy waitress at the morning buffet.
Very easy to catch the Funicular Railway down to Como so as to avoid driving and parking in the City
the hotel is very-very far up on the mountain, the view is spectacular!
The location was fantastic! Distance from a variety of shops/restaurants. Food was very expensive and lacking quality at the local restaurant.
The food! Heard from the gentleman @ railway station while we're asking for info on how to get to Locanda Milano from the station, that we should eat there. Indeed it was so good that we had our dinners there for 2 nights.
Manager very very unpleasant. Any eit from my room had to be through the bar.not close to any shops or cafes
Frederico and his staff did a wonderful job in making our trip so memorable. The assistance provided during the stay was very greatly appreciated. It was well worth the trip up the mountain from Como!!!!
The staff were lovely, welcoming and genuinely friendly. No negative comments, it was a gorgeous little place to stay.
Lovely panoramic views of Como from the hotel room. Excellent food at the locanda in the evening - worth the price. Drive to Brunate rather nail biting. Italians drive as if they own the road. However, the hotel is not to blame. Some lobbying to widen the roads to accommodate the increasing number of vans and 4x4 vehicles would do great benefit.
Local, authentic, used by locals. Restaurant excellent, wine cellar, modern facilities. Freindly service. Excellent location. no
The staff was friendly and accomodating. They let us check in early upon arrival and made sure we had a place to park the car. Breakfast was very good and plentiful. Opportunity to explore a quaint village that we may have otherwise missed. We liked the slippers in the room. Could have used luggage stand in the room.
