Reviews for Albergo Terminus
Unlike many who reviewed this hotel, we got lucky with a nice room with a balcony view of the lake. The complimentary breakfast was good and that staff was so nice and charming. The front desk staff was anything but helpful. They were quite off-putting. The dining room and outdoor bar staff was so awful we chose not to dine there. We wanted a place to sit outside and perhaps order something to drink and we received only a dinner menu. We were directed by the front desk to sit in a dismal back area in a courtyard. The maitre'd looked angry that we were sitting there and yelled at one of the waiters in front of us. He was rude and unkind. Although the room was fine, the hotel is dated and the carpeting and furniture are dingy and old. Overall, in spite of a nice view from our balcony, we were very disappointed.

Fantastic people, beautiful hotel and the best dining in Como. Do yourself a favor and stay here. Besides the beautiful hotel itself, the secret is the food. You can't dine here if you don't stay here so don't miss the opportunity.

Staying here as a couple for several days, we had a nice time in Como. The staff was very welcoming and warm, always helpful and zealous. The hotel is situated nicely by the lake, right next to some touristy locations. We had a room to the lake side (lake view). The room was very small and a bit too loud. There's the hotel restaurant and bar on this side, and piano music plays till the late hours, and traffic on the main street starts early. Sadly, the hotel has bad windows, so this side of the hotel is nothing for folks with a light sleep - which was not a big problem for us, so we stayed in that room. The room was always clean and the bath room (equipped with shower, bidet, basin, hair dryer) was surprisingly large and modern. The breakfast was nice with a selection of bread, cold cuts, cheese and sweets, but we found it confusing to get served some sort of barley coffee first (actually a mix from coffee and barley coffee as we were explained), when there was actual coffee (espresso, americano, cappucino etc) available for free upon request. We've seen more exhaustive buffets in other hotels, but we didn't miss anything fundamental. We didn't use any other of the hotel's conveniences, just tried the restaurant and found the service there rude. Too rude to go there twice (we've addressed this in the respective review). The bar is very overpriced - 12â‚¬ avg. for a cocktail, 6-7 at the bars just round the corner. My suggestion to the managers: Promote the wonderful lady in the breakfast room to become the restaurant's maitre d', promote one of the zealous pages to the breakfast chef and let the current maitre d' care for the luggage. If he's unfriendly there, the suitcases won't mind too much. And, buy some new windows.

We stayed for 4 nights and had a room adjacent to the parking/hotel entrance area which is also adjacent to the restaurant and lounge. The room was very spacious for Italian standards, however our shutters are barred so the there is no view from the room and it can be noisy late at night. The staff, breakfast and location are the main plusses for the Terminus. Late night and early morning noises are the minuses. There was also construction in the interior courtyard that began around 7 a.m.

We have just spent 5 nights in Como at the Albergo Terminus. Superbly located by the lake, 200m from the ferry terminal. Very comfortable rooms, traditional yet modern. Very helpful staff especially Mattia at front desk and Grace and John in the breakfast room. We would love to return.
