Very Good8.0
Nice location with very good view to the lakek
Best location in Como, with good sized rooms, and perfect view to the lake, rooms need renovation and you cant switch on the heating system before the winter season as its centrally controlled by the hotel, can get a bit cold due to that.

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.
