How to get here
If you’re coming by car, take the A9 motorway (autostrada) in the direction Como-Chiasso and take the exit Como Sud. Then simply follow the directions to the city centre and you’ll find the hotel in n.1 Piazza Cavour.
After leaving your bags, you can then park your car in the parking at our Palace Hotel, just a few metres away. You won’t be needing it for the rest of your stay.
If you use a GPS, please use this street: "Via Bianchi Giovini". Piazza Cavour and the Hotel are at the end of this street.
Access to the Hotel - new Restricted Traffic Zone (RTZ)
We inform our guests that if arriving by car to the Hotel Barchetta Excelsior, the access from the streets named Via Pretorio, Via Rodari and Piazza Roma are now part of the new RTZ of Como.
Our guests have unrestricted access. If you should be stopped by the traffic wardens, please inform them that you are a client of the hotel.
Upon check in, we will need to register the model and the registration plate of your car, in order to avoid any fines. Thank you.
In arrival, if you need a taxi from the airports, just give us a call and we’ll arrange one for you.
If you’re coming by train, your point of reference is the central station of Como San Giovanni, which is only a 15 minute walk away from the hotel.
If you’re travelling from the north (Germany or Switzerland), your train destined for Milan, will probably stop at the Como San Giovanni Station, so you can simply get off there.
However, if you’re coming from the south, you’ll need to go to Milan first and from there take another train to Como.
Como and Milan are connected by the northern line.
For example from Milan Malpensa airport, take the Malpensa Express on the northern line and change at Saronno, where you can take a train for Como Nord Lago.
From Milan Linate airport you’ll find the bus number 73 which will take you to Piazza San Babila. From there, take the metro (line M1/red) until the Cadorna stop. Here you’ll find the northern line station where you can take the train for Como Nord Lago.
