Negative Reviews

Parking frustrations abound

Being located in the midst of lovely Lake Como's pedestrian section is absolutely delightful, unless you drove to the hotel In that case, finding a place to park could become a minor nightmare The hotel does offer a pay-to-park garage, but getting in and out can be complicated Make sure you ask for specific instructions.

Staying connected will cost you

Although the hotel allows guests to connect to Wi-Fi or wired Internet, it does cost as a premium service This may put off some travellers who are used to courtesy Web You may wish to check on rates or try to survive on smartphone use or a hotspot.

Bustling downtown may seep into your room

Some guests of Barchetta Excelsior Hotel have noted that--due to the active central location, lively foot paths and thin walls--the cacophony outside tends to penetrate into their lodgings Guests with sleep issues or put off by noises may wish to request top floor accommodations and make sure their balcony doors are securely closed.
