“An oasis of peace in an animated city”

Reviewed 14 Nov 2012

The apartment is charming and very large with two bedrooms, a comfortable living-room, a dining room for at least 6 people, a kitchen very well furnished with a nice space for breakfast, and a vast entrance hall. All this beautifully decorated and punctiliously clean. Our hosts were very kind and offer all the help we needed for a 2-week stay in Como. Casa Margherita is in the vicinity of all the interests and facilities in Como: train and bus stations, Duomo and Theatre, markets and shops; however it is an oasis of peace, with a charming garden, for recovering at the end of the day.

Dear fiends thanks for your stay and for your nice review. We are very happy that you have liked Como and our apartment Best wishes Gigliola

“Lovely apartment in a great location”

Reviewed 15 Oct 2012

I stayed in this lovely apartment for 4 nights in September along with 3 other adults. We all enjoyed our stay immensely and have no hesitation in recommending this apartment to others. We found the owner, Gigliola (and her husband) to be extremely helpful and caring and were on hand to offer assistance if required. After full days of sightseeing in the beautiful Lake Como area it was great to come home to this charmingly furnished, spacious and light-filled apartment. The location was perfect - on the side of a hill just a 10 minute stroll from the town centre. The small streets in the immediate area offered a number of shops where items such as milk, bread, fruits, cheeses etc could be purchased and all the shopkeepers were extremely helpful despite a language barrier in some instances. Our stay in Como and Casa Margherita 2 was a wonderful experience.

Dear friends thanks for your stay and for your review. I hope our thalks help you....very clever. Best wishes Adriano e Gigliola

“Great place”

Reviewed 13 Apr 2012

We were a family with three kids (7, 11 and 13) who stayed one week in Como. Both the kids and parents loved the place. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The appartment is located near city center, close to everything and in a very quiet and charming area. I can recomend this place and loved to come back.

“Memories from a heavenly place”

Reviewed 5 Jan 2012

I am one of those fascinated about Italy and this one was my eigth trip to this charming country. We have already stayed in basic accommodations ( a chain hotel for budget travelers ), normal hotels (70-80 euro per night ) and a luxury grand hotel in Sorrento ( I’m ashamed to say the price). Now I can say that from all those places we have stayed, we have felt the best in Casa Margherita 2. We are an adult couple and shared the house with an other couple and an old lady. We were five adult persons. The price was so good that I had some worries before going there ( the photos are showing old furniture, there was no photo with the bathroom, the prices in that region were usually much higher )… It was a great surprise for me. The apartment wasn’t very big but big enough for us , very clean, classy, with much light and fresh air . I have found in the kitchen EVERYTHING you could imagine, probably there are things I don’t have in my home. The bathroom was similar to those from 4 stars hotels ( including a hydromassage shower cabin, a bidet toilet seat ), all new and clean and furnished with washing machine. I was astonished… I have carried in my suitcase lots of things I have imagined we’ll need , because we usually have stayed in hotels and this one was the first time in a self care apartment. It was good for nothing, as we had everything at the place.We found in Casa Margherita 2 everything we needed. We had felt very much the same as we were in a visit at some very close relatives. I’m afraid we were a bit too noisy, as we actually have forgotten we were not at our home. I can’t pretend it is a 4 stars hotel but, after all, for us it was better. The house is really close to everything (center, port, bus station via Giuseppe Gorio 17), in a silent place. We arrived by train and took the number 5 bus from the station .However, I don’t recommend the bus for those who can’t speak Italian because the driver runs very fast , usually stops at request and there is no notification about the next station. A taxi would be better : when we leaved the house mrs Gigliola called one for us and the fee was 10-11 euros for five persons and lots of luggage. The last 20 meters before getting to the house were a little steep but with no stairs. We found right at the crossing of via Zezio with via Maurizio Monti a little grocery shop with everything we needed, as we were preparing our meals at home. Last, but not least, we found very special property owners. They are very discrete and still always present and kindly available when you need an advice. I can’t thank them enough, especially to signora Gigliola !! My advice for other travelers : stay there at least a week, our trip was shorter ( 4 nights ) and it was definitely too short for so many wonderful places you can visit.

“This apartment suited us perfectly and we hope to return next year!”

Reviewed 2 Sep 2011

Great apartment, the owners were very helpful and friendly. The apartment was huge with lovely big windows in every room. Very close to all amenities and some good restaurants but it is situated on quite a steep hill which was fine for us but would perhaps pose a problem for some. The apartment had all the facilities we needed for our stay and internet access was the only detail that could have been of benefit and wasn't available. We would definitely stay here again.

Good Day!We would like to thank you for your review,We are looking forward to see you again on your next visit.Regarding internet we also provide wi-fi internet connection.Bye then and were waiting for you and your friends to visit again,Your always welcome.
