5-star wonderful stay at Hotel Barchetta Excelsior
Fantastic stay at this lovely hotel situated on the shore of Lake Como! Classy and spotlessly clean hotel with extremely kind, professional, helpful front desk staff - amazingly wonderful! Plentiful breakfast buffet each morning with various coffees made to-order. The location of the the hotel is perfect - right at the shoreline and at the edge of charming, historic Como Old Town. Short walk to the funiculare up the mountain. The boat docks of the various ferry boats that traverse Lake Como are steps away. We loved our stay here at Hotel Barchetta Excelsior and plan to return soon!!! Thank you to all of the wonderful staff. We couldn't ask for more!

Great location 3 star location 4 star food
Hotel was in the best possible location in Como right on the square a block from the church square and plaza. Hotel is vey old and in need of upgrade to be called 4 stars which it falls short of. Food in the restaurant rates extremely high but the hotel is a bit run down. Hotel people from restaurant to front desk perfect attitudes and service. Great advice from hotel what where and how to spend your time in the city and Lake Como. I would recommend the hotel just not 4 star.

It's located on one of the best location in como. Hotel staff was very nice and helpful. We loved stayed at this hotel. The only tricky issue is parking as you have to park at sister concern hotel at 4 mins walk. Staff at parking hotel was great and really helpful too. They need to update a bit to be more competitive. I rate this hotel 5 out of 5. If you want a place where you can walk around any time this is the place. There is a halal restaurant at
