Hotel Tre Re
Travel Blogs from Como
Well here I am in Como, Northern Italy and have already been to Gavirate on the shores of Lake Varese staying in a fabulous B&B. I completed the nursing program in England with a great result and flew to Milan and onto Lugano (right at the bottom of Switzerland) where I spent the weekend with my wonderful Italian friends Elisa and Marco. We …
... Riarena in Cugnasco, Switzerland. Lovely site, has free wi-fi everywhere and the toilets/showers are spotless. Only problem is that we are parked under a bloody Oak tree which is dropping acorns everywhere and they make a hell of a noise when they hit the van! Parked next to two other British couples. Haven't seen many Brits on our travels - thought there would be more. Tomorrow off to Ottenbach. Night ...
... didn't really have much in the way of brekkie food so headed out about 10.30 in search of coffee. Being Sunday, the local village only a few bends down didn't have anything open, so we headed north once we got to the bottom. Only a few minutes later we found a bar and restaurant for coffee on their waterfront balcony. No food available at that hour, so we just sat watching the water activity for a while, and the para gliders we could see coming down somewhere further north. Only ...
... better and went off on the day tour today.
I had several hours free in the middle of the day. I had seen a market from the taxi on the way back from the hospital so being a real sucker for markets I went back to find it. It was mostly clothes and very extensive. I bought a shirt to wear to La Scala tomorrow. Clothes are great quality and relatively cheap here, by Aussie standards.
My next adventure was a trip on ...

How has this hotel rated in the past?
Great position, very close to the lake and Como Lago Nord. But bed and pillows are like bricks, so ask to change for softer ones - they changed mine with no problems.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Tre Re Como
First class all the way
stay from SEPT 9 -12 ,2006 -very convenient location.in center como -close to everything -shops and cathedral. Family athmosphere, very clean & comfortable rooms. Nice restaurant, unfortunately our schedule did not allow for dinner there - one of our regrets. But we did enjoy the lovely buffet breakfast, I will definitely recommend this Hotel to all my friends who are anxious to visit Lake Como.
Excellent hotel and location
This is an excellent hotel with all the ameneties you would want in the best part of the city. It is in the heart of all the pedestrian area restaurants and shops and 2 minutes walk to the waterfront and restaurants. I was considering the Best Western and am happy I selected Hotel Tre Re. The staff is great, the rooms are spacious, clean, and comfortable. The breakfast is pretty good. The location can't be beat. I will visit and stay in this hotel again!
Very Central, yet quiet
We are a couple with one child and our objective was to spend a long weekend in Como, staying at a central location but without the typical outside disturbances like street noise from bars or cars.
Hotel Tre Re was just the right choice since it is right in the center of Como, but also on a very quiet corner. It is also a very clean place and our room was very spacious. Breakfast was good and the personnel very attentive. So, no complains at all, except it is maybe a little bit too expensive for the facilities. But, after all, the location compensates for that.
This is not a bad stay, particularly if you want to be in Como for shops, tour boats, etc. However, I'm motivated to look elsewhere for any future stays in the area.
Overpriced for what it is
Paid Euro 114 for a "superior" room for a weekend stay in mid November. Room basic and furnished with old tatty furniture. Very poor value for money compared to other hotels we have stayed in around the Italian lakes. Main positive is the central location and the fact it is away from road noise.
Hotel Tre Re is in a great location, less than 5 minutes walk to the Lake/Ferry and main square and about 10 minutes to the main Railway station (Como San Giovanni) A typical, traditional Italian style Hotel with shuttered windows, tiled floors, old heavy dark furniture and thin 'tea-towel' like bath towels. Modern features included cable TV and air-conditioning. We had a triple room which we booked directly with the Hotel. We were quoted 135 Euros with breakfast 110 euros without. (October 2004) We found the staff helpful when asked but not very friendly.
We were very happy at Tre Re. Central location, friendly service. We had a triple room and it was spacious and clean. It was also a good value for the price at 120 Euros.
Nice, good location and Air Conditioning
Situated in the old town, a few steps from the lake. Hotel has modern AC with remote control which is extremely important in Como during the summer. Also has parking if you come by car and is close to the train station as well. If come by car, make sure you get a good map because you can't drive inside the old town and you must come around it. Restaurant is good and they speak English and German. The only thing I did not like were the beds, which were a little too hard for my taste.
A Hidden Gem
Whilst it may not look much from the outside, nor does it have lake views, this hotal was in a fantastic location in the heart of Como just a few steps from the Piazza's and the lake. The rooms were modern, clean and airconditioned. The staff were exceptionally friendly. The complimentary car parking in the courtyard was an added bonus.
Overall exceptional value for money and a superb location.
Worth a second visit
In June 2001 we drove into Como on our way to Umbria. We had not booked anywhere and were desperate to find somewhere with rooms free and at a reasonable price. When we found two rooms at the Tre Re we took them gratefully and then were delighted when we saw them - extremely clean and furnished in a modern, minimal way - very welcoming. Extra bonus was being able to park in the small courtyard and also being so close to the Lake. Staff also very friendly.
