My husband and I arrived at this hotel in full health on 23rd December 2021. On 27th December 2021 a local chemist advised we both tested positive for Covid and were highly contagious. This was the date we had hoped to travel home. We returned to the Barchetta to collect our luggage and advised the receptionist that we both tested positive. From that moment we were treated no better than Lepers. The receptionist quickly called the manager and we were asked to leave the hotel immediately. The receptionist's hands flicked at us to get out. I was refused the use of the bathroom. We were told not to tell anyone we had Covid nor where we had stayed. The receptionist advised that as we had a green pass we should just go elsewhere. We were a problem she definitely did not want. This hotel was happy to take our money but never offered any assistance, help or understanding to 2 strangers to the Lake Como area who were now placed in a horrible situation through no fault of their own. Shame on you. You have lost our custom forever.

Dear Susan Z, with regards to your review, we are very sorry to hear such bitterness in your comments. Please allow me to clarify the situation for fellow readers. When you returned to the hotel after testing positive, you had already checked-out. Therefore the colleague at reception suggested to you to look for alternative accomodation as our hotel was closing after the New Year's festivities and we could not risk having guests in isolation once closed. Nothing more. The rest of your accusations are false. Nobody "flicked" their hands at you to leave nor did we say "not to tell anyone were you stayed". We did offer assistance to find you alternative accomodation where to stay but you declined. Yours faithfully, Robert Webber General Manager

Amazing location right on the lake and special mention to Michela and Matteo who were very helpful with useful info abt restaurants and needed tourist info. The view from the hotel was also amazing. We got the junior suite which slept our family of four very comfortably.

We only spent one night here, but the hotel was fantastic. Great rooms, bar and breakfast. But most of all the service was above and beyond. When our driver didn’t show up, Michela and Ilaria went out of there way to find us another driver. They solved our problem very quickly and with a smile. Give these women a promotion😊

Our stay here couldn't have been nicer as the hotel location, staff and foid where excellent. I would highly recommend staying here than elsewhere on the lake as the easy access to the lake boats and old town provide a much broader range of scenery and restaurant options than staying in a town like Bellagio. Spend a bit more for a balcony roim, it's well worth it.

We would like to thank the staff for a terrific vacation at your hotel, especially Michela and Mateo. They were always very friendly and accommodating, from directions to recommendations to printing travel documents, they were always helpful. The reason for 4 stars is that the hotel has just one iron and ironing board (poor condition, inexpensive to replace) for the whole hotel. To use it you have to take your items to the luggage storage room in the lobby, and possibly wait your turn.
