“Beautiful Apartment and Exceptional Hospitality”
Reviewed 25 July 2017 for a stay in June 2016

As the title states, La Mansarda is truly in the perfect location of Como. The apartment is not only within walking distance to all of the most important tourist attractions, shops, and cafes, it is just a few feet from the lake itself.
We stayed at La Mansarda twice. The first time was around Christmas in 2014 and the second time was in June 2016, so we were able to get a sense of the apartment in two different seasons. In the winter, the apartment was cozy and warm, and in the summer, the AC was a welcome respite from the heat.

The apartment itself is beautifully decorated with modern furniture and filled with light from sunny windows. In addition, it was spotlessly clean. We were also happy to have amenities like fast Wi-Fi, plush towels, and a hair dryer. Most importantly, Marcia is a lovely and generous hostess who speaks perfect English. She consistently went out of her way to make us feel welcome, provide us with everything we needed and direct us to the best attractions in Como. We have stayed in many vacation homes while traveling but felt that La Mansarda surpassed them all in terms of cleanliness, comfort, hospitality, and location. Grazie, Marcia!

“Great location and great apartment”
Reviewed 9 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

My husband and I spent 4 nights at La Mansarda at the end of May. The location is amazing - right across from the lake (and tour boats) and within minutes walking distance of all the major sights. We parked our rental car in the Centro Largo underground parking garage during our stay (about a 5 minute walk from the apartment) - very convenient. Marcia is a great host - speaks perfect English. All of our communications (and the check in and check out procedures) were 100% PLUS. We are seniors and really appreciated the elevator as the apartment is on the top (4th) floor - we also appreciated the air conditioning (it was extremely hot during our stay). The apartment was spotlessly clean and well maintained. The shower is not very high for tall people but my 6' 3" husband managed OK!!! There are no views from the high windows but this didn't bother us at all because the apartment is bright and cheerful. We really enjoyed our stay in Como and are glad we chose La Mansarda - we couldn't have picked a better place to stay. It was a real pleasure meeting Marcia and we hope to come back again.

“Just steps from the water's edge”
Reviewed 27 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Arriving at La Mansarda was made so much easier by the very kind Marcia coming to collect us at the station. The apartment was very well appointed, the washing machine was particularly appreciated and well used during our stay. Marcia has thought of everything from traditional espresso maker to extra towels. The lift to the third floor was also very much appreciated as many Italian apartments don't have lifts. The location is very close to the ferry terminal for trips all over Lake Como and there are many good restaurants nearby.
Would recommend this apartment for people of all abilities. Thank you Marcia.

“Perfect Location, Wonderful Owner/Manager”
Reviewed 18 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed at La Mansarda for a week at end of Sept. 2015. It truly is the perfect position half a block from the lake, right in the Old Town, across the street from the ferries you will take to Varenna, Bellagio, etc., close to all the restaurants, an easy 5 min. walk to Como Nord train station. We love just being able to walk out of our pied-à-terre and allowing the adventure to begin!

The apartment is clean, light, has a separate one bedroom with the best bed of our 3 week trip, great hot water & water pressure, strong wifi, and an elevator, which we are starting to appreciate more and more. There is an excellent pizza place right below on first floor, and we took advantage of that the first and last nights.

As mentioned in a review below, we usually look for a place with a washing machine, but the lack of one was greatly outweighed by all the other advantages of the apartment.

The very exceptional thing about the apt. is Marcia herself! She offered to pick us up at the train station, met with us going over the apartment and recommendations for restaurants, to-do's, etc., anything you might want to know. At the end, she picked us up at 6:30 a.m. to take us to a more distant train station. Marcia is an incredibly caring landlord, and we were the fortunate recipients.

“Fantastic Apartment in a Como”
Reviewed 25 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at La Mansarda. The apartment was very well equipped. Marcia had even supplied a bottle of wine for us. The only suggestion we could possibly give was to make a washing machine available. In saying that, we had no trouble taking care of our laundry at the laundromat after receiving directions from Marcia. We would be more than happy to stay at La Mansarda again.
