The Hotel Barchetta Excelsior is a member of the Villa d’Este Group and has a superb location in the heart of historical city centre of Como, with the best view of the lake in town. Located in the main square facing the most romantic lake in the world and a short walk to the old town with its cobbled streets and impressive Renaissance Cathedral. The hotel is a very comfortable base from which to explore the area. It was built in 1893 and quickly became the most important hotel in town, as well as a meeting point of the local aristocrats. After a huge 2013 refurbishment, with modern and contemporary public areas, and traditionally decorated rooms, the Barchetta is a comfortable and very welcoming hotel. There are 84 rooms, 80 of which are twin or double bedded. The are also three junior suites and one suite.
