Overview

Lake Como Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 double bedrooms, 4 people -children not allowed except teenagers

Welcome to Classico apartment.

Classico is one of Blustella apartments (the other ones are Romantico ref.no.397454 and Artistico ref.no.3014296).

This apartment newly refurbished consists of one dining/living room, two bedrooms , one bathroom and is located in an historical building overlooking the seventeenth-century Piazza Mazzini formerly known as “Piazza del Duca”. Classico apartment is on the second floor (out of three).

At the entrance behind the security door there is the kitchen/dining room : it has dishwasher, microwave oven, fridge, coffee machine, kettle, toaster and four ceramic hobs. There is a table with four seats and a very comfy sofa. There is a ceiling fan providing a good circulation of air during summer.

Each bedroom has a double bed with a very spacious wardrobe and ceiling fans too. In one of the wardrobe there is a safe. One of the bedrooms is overlooking the Piazza Mazzini while the other one has a window over Via Diaz.

The bathroom has shower, hair dryer and heated towel rail (linen and towels provided).

Heating is provided by a gas heater placed in the kitchen.

All in all the apartment is very bright; a palette of natural colours and a hint of British style are distinctive characteristics. It is particularly suitable for couples in their honeymoon or married couples with adult sons.

White furniture, sliding glass doors and ceramic hobs make this apartment not suitable for children of any age. (please kids are not allowed).

Wi-fi is available for guests and included in our rental fees.

We treasure our guest's suggestions and/or criticisms in order to improve year by year the quality of our service by doing necessary maintenance and/or needed changes in any apartment.

Further details indoors:

In the apartment there are some fliers, maps of the town and a selection of books also in English about Como and its surroundings.

Weekly change of linen and towels is provided.

Finding free parking places in Como old town centre is quite difficult. Actually they are all with parking meters with coins.

We might suggest then to access Parking Centro Lago which is the closest parking lot to our building. Weekly fares are recommended.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our stay in Como was very enjoyable made more pleasant by this well positioned, modern, spacious and light apartment.

We had clean directions on how to find the apartment from the station and contact with Giovani was easy and he was here to meet us and help us settle in.

The apartment worked well for us as two couples and we loved the central location for walking, day trips and shopping.

If there could be a negative it was the lack of any laundry facilities - machine, iron and ironing board.

We will be certain to recommend this apartment to others for future stays.

Many thanks.



N.B. Self service laundromat can be found at Via Cadorna which is a 10-15 mins. walk NW of apartment outside city wall

Beautiful apartment in central Como location.

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely 3 night stay in the apartment. It's in a great location, in central Como, overlooking a lively piazza. The apartment is beautifully kept and it was a real bonus to find somewhere with two double-sized bedrooms. Giovanni, who showed us into the apartment, was very helpful and gave us tips on how to get around and what to do around the lake. Would definitely stay again.

Comfortable, beautiful apartment in Como

  • 5 of 5

The apartment easily met my "3Cs" requirement of clean, comfortable, and convenient! Communication with Gillian before our trip was prompt and helpful. Once we arrived, Giovanni was very helpful and informative. My husband, two teenage children, and I stayed in Classico over a chilly Easter weekend. The apartment was warm and the beds very comfortable. It is centrally located, and an easy walk to many restaurants, historical sites, shopping, a grocery store, Como Nord and S. Giovanni train stations, and the lakefront. We had a very nice dinner at Il Solito Posto. We enjoyed the funicular ride to, and a walk through Brunate. We took a boat ride around the lake and visited lovely and picturesque Varenna. When he realized we were fascinated by Roman ruins, Giovanni recommended the ruins preserved under a recently-built parking garage in Como. A man from the Italy Touring Club gave us a very informative tour (in Italian). It was a treat that we hadn't seen listed in any guide book. We would highly recommend Blustella-Classico and the beautiful town of Como!

amazing apt in como!

  • 5 of 5

we stayed in the classico for 9 nights including the weekend of the italian grand prix. the apartment was in the most fantastic location in como. 5 min walk to the como san giovanni train station, even quicker to the other one. about 2 mins to the lake where we went every night to just sit. the apt overlooks a little piazza and its heavenly. great winds come thru the windows. the pizza place downstairs had the best pizza and our fav coffee shop was in the square as well. the apt itself is very updated and modern. very spacious, bigger than the pics make it look. the bathroom was great, very large for european standards. giovanni was very helpful upon check in and helped us call a cab on the way home, as we had lots of extra bags by then! i would highly recommend this apt to anyone going to como! we will stay again if we get back!

Bluestella Classico - Fantastic!!

  • 5 of 5

Just stayed at Bluestella Classico. What a tremendous experience and fabulous apartment! The location was perfect the condo has been updated with a modern feel and more spacious then the photos show. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this apartment to my family and friends. Giovanni, who checked us in was very pleasant and knowledgeable making our stay more enjoyable with his recommendations. The location allows you to comfortably walk to any and all locations in Como, even the San Giovanni train station.

Sauber zentral gelegen, leider recht lärmig

  • 4 of 5

Wohnung bietet alles was man braucht für einen Aufenthalt in Como. Negativ ist nur der Lärm von draussen welcher das Schlafen bei offem Fenster verunmöglicht.

Impecable y en situación inmejorable!!

  • 5 of 5

Hemos pasado unas maravillosas vacaciones en este precioso apartamento!!! La situación a pocos metros del lago, muy cerca del centro, de las estaciones de tren y en una plaza muy animada con muy bonitos bares y restaurantes. El apartamento está en un edificio rehabilitado, situado en una 2º planta con escaleras muy cómodas, con impecable decoración, entero exterior y con mucho sol, calefacción individual, muy cerca de supermercado y panadería.

Fuimos con nuestras 2 hijas y estuvimos los 4 muy cómodos en nuestras habitaciones con camas muy confortables y muy buenos armarios. El piso está equipado con todo lo necesario en cocina, bonita vajilla (y condimentos, azúcar, café, aceite), baño muy cómodo, buena ropa de cama y muchísima información de folletos y libros sobre Como y los pueblos del lago, villas, jardines, historia, transporte etc..

La única crítica sería la falta de un pequeña aspiradora o una simple escoba y un recogedor.

Agradecemos el recibimiento de Giovanni con una botella de delicioso vino y todas sus indicaciones ya que estuvo pendiente en todo momento de nuestro horario de llegada.

Lo recomendaremos a nuestros amigos y repetiremos sin dudarlo!!!

Lombardy ( Lombardia) is one of the twenty regions of Italy. The capital city is Milan. One-sixth of Italy's population lives in Lombardy the most populous and richest region in the Country and one of the richest in the whole of Europe.

The climate of this region is continental, though with variations depending on altitude or the presence of inland waters. Lake Como weather is generally mild. It is known for its Mediterranean-like climate where tropical and sub-tropical plants can grow year-round. In the winter, the lake helps to maintain a higher temperature in the surrounding region.

Old town centre of Como is only for pedestrians so that you can enjoy strolling about the small streets (via) or sitting by cafeterias in the squares (piazza), steeped in the town's every day’s real life.

Como is really picturesque: shaped as in a grid inside the medieval walls, everything is at hand though, from restaurants to shops and supermarkets.

During Summer you can enjoy bathing at Villa Olmo's swimming pool (Lido) which is at the left end of the lake promenade at 15-20 mins walking distance from the apartments.

In two minutes walking you can get to the lake promenade, boat jetties, railway and bus stations and Brunate's funicular (cable-rail). There is good train service to Milan (about every half hour) as well as major exhibition centres such as Fiera Milano Rho.

There is also a good service from Malpensa Airport to Como (Malpensa express train): change at Saronno to Como.

In town there is a wide choice of typical restaurants, pizzerias and shops and also markets, museums, banks, pharmacies, and supermarkets.
