“Ideal place to stay in Como”
Reviewed 30 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Stella's apartment was in the centre of the old part of the city. It was close to the cathedral, the lake, shops, cafes, bus station and only a few minutes walk from the funicular.Stella was at the apartment to greet us and show us around, she was most helpful and welcoming. We very much enjoyed our stay there.

We loved our stay at House in Old Town. Everything we could possibly want was supplied including milk and butter which was greatly appreciated.The apartment was spacious and clean and the location was in a quiet street but only 50 meters from all the action. The bed was comfortable and the wifi worked well. The terrace was a wonderful space to relax in with a glass of wine after a long day.
Stella is a beautiful & friendly lady who made us feel very welcome. Stella kept in touch the whole time we were in Como, checking to make sure we were okay.

“Stella's beautiful place - the perfect base for Lake Como”
Reviewed 2 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We were greeted on arrival by the lovely Stella who showed us how things worked and she left a contact number in case we needed her during our stay. The apartment was spotlessly clean and very tastfully decorated. It felt very homely and the little balcony was an added bonus. The apartment had everything you needed for your stay including detergents, dishwasher tablets, an endless supply of mini toiletries, towels, linens and every kitchen utensil you would need. It was perfect. The decor is lovely and Stella certainly takes pride in her apartments and customer satisfaction for her guests. The apartment is a short walk from the lake and from two train stations, Stella couldnt have done more for us, she was the warmest and loveliest host you can imagine. We were very sad to leave. We will be back again in the near future.

“Little gem in beautiful Como”
Reviewed 14 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed at this centrally located apartment for a week while attending a wedding in Como, the owner Stella was extremely helpful, even with hairdressers in the area for my girlfriend! Stella was a wonderful host, the apartment was spotlessly clean and supplied with travel sized toiletries and a welcome basket which included pasta, milk, butter, tea, coffee, jams.

The apartment is only a 5 minute walk to the lake with shops and restaurants along the way. We ate at the restaurant next door to the apartment also called Stella (no connection to apartment owner)!!! It was mostly fish on the menu to our delight and was excellent.

The only downside to this apartment is that there is no air conditioning - while we stayed there was a heatwave, 38 degrees. Stella contacted us and called over with a fan which was most helpful.

Overall I would highly recommend this apartment for your stay in Como and would gladly stay again if given the chance.
