Hotel Barchetta Excelsior
We chose this hotel for it's location , we spent 4 nights here for our honeymoon, the hotel was perfect , staff were very friendly & nothing was any trouble I would stay at the barchetta anytime
Steve, gbOther trip
Hotel Barchetta Excelsior
Fantastico! Great location and great view. We had 5th floor room with balcony overlooking the lake and surrounding hills. Perfect for easy access to lake ferries (beware of the queues at weekends, Monday much less busy). Cathedral and funicular both within easy walking distance. Staff very friendly, food and drink very good. Really impressed with cleanliness everywhere in the hotel. If ever staying in Como again would definitely stay here.

Would stay here again.
I had seen the negative views for this hotel... but it certainly was a very good experience for me on this visit. Very clean, bedding clean and comfortable. Twin bed with balcony and lake view was good size and great experience. Reception, cleaning and catering staff are all very good. Breakfast choices and breakfast dining area are very good. The room service breakfast menu carries extra charges for some items... like cereal... bit confusing because if you go to the breakfast room rather than room service delivery you can eat what you like without extra charges.
