small charming studio in a medieval street in the heart of the city center in a beautiful '600 palazzo.
At walking distance to all amenities such as bars, restaurants, the lake and the train stations.
Charming studio in a beautiful 16th century "palazzo" in an old medieval street in the heart of the city center. It consists of an open space with queen size bed in the mezzanine + a sofa convertible in a double bed plus small toilet with sink, wc and shower in the mezzanine.
Fully equipped kitchen with fridge, electrical kettle, small electric oven and washing machine.
An old wooden ceiling, old open walls, old carpets and an old marble fireplace plus a collection of old tools and objects and of course its great location make this little cozy place really special!
The place is ideal to discover the beautiful city of Como and its lake with the confort of been in the city center.
All amenities such as bars, restaurants, the lake and the railway station and a supermarket are all at walking distance.
Due to the steep staircase and because of the tiny bathroom with a low ceiling (cm174 heigh) it is suitable for adaptable people who appreciate to be in an old historic building.
Since I no longer live in Como but abroad one of my friends is taking care to welcome the guests and help them.

With a last minute change of plans I am unable to give feedback on the apartment, however the hosts made other arrangements for me. They were amazingly generous and helpful, picking me up at the station, offering me a wonderful meal, free access to wifi and anything I needed at their home. I am sure the advertised apartment would be everything and more they said, and I would definitely recommend staying at their apartment.
Sandy, Adelaide - October 2013
We stayed at Elenas studio for 5 nights in October 2013. We had a wonderfull time there, because we really enjoyed the nice location in the middle of the historic center in Como. Beside the location, the studio offers everything you need including full kitchen equipment, a small but entire bathroom, nice bed, couch, hot water and a well temperatured heater. We would totally recommend this studio for people who appreciate an authentic italien style of living and the central location.
Because of the difficult parking situation in the central we recommend the covered and monitored autosilo where via castlenuovo crosses via palestro which costs 5€/24h.
Wundervolles Erlebnis in Elena's romantischem, kunstvollen Studio. Mit viel Liebe und Geschmack eingerichtet, zentral gelegen, ruhig und stimmungsvoll. Ich würde dort am liebsten leben....
In the best case, go and see yourself before renting...
My solution was having to stay in a hotel for one week then until I fortunately found a truly nice appartment.
I can only suggest to anyone here on airbnb to leave a fair description of what they offer and to at least make sure that the accomodation is in an acceptable situation/condition.
The apartment was very comfortable and its location in the heart of the old city made it a great place to stay. The only drawback was that we couldn't manage to turn on the shower in the bath, which made bathing a bit of a challenge. Overall, a pleasant experience.
A great apartment in a wonderful area of town!
Perfect location to visit Como. We were so fine in "our" little cosy apartment in the old town!
We couldn't meet Elena but her very nice friend Miyanda welcomed us. Thanks to her.
had some special days in elena's very special appartment - being in the middle of a city with all comforts like gelaterias, pizzerias and of course the lake and even the hills reachable in a few minutes and yet living that quiet and originally is really something special :)
My visit to Como coincide with a very complicate personal moment. While I was in the house, I received some very bad news from home. Elena was, in these moments, not only a host, but a friend. Helped me and gave me support, and saved the worst moments. With an attitude like this (generous, warm, respectful, human!), nothing else is necessary.
But of course you need to know a little bit about the studio, apart from my stories :) The studio is small, sure, and the toilette is small, true. But the price is really good, for being in such a super centric street (from Vittani street) to the lake there's two minutes walking. If you want super luxe commodities, search for an hotel. If you want the heart of the city and authentic building from Lombardia, then that's your place.
Thanks again for these days at Como, Elena.
Have fun at your trip to Italy, Airbnb readers!
