I, myself used the train to get to Como and then caught the bus to the hotel. The cost was about 15 euros, one way. I found the rail station staff very helpful and although there were two rail journeys involved it was an easy trip.Although the buses are quite frequent there is no facility on the bus to store suitcases and the driver I had didn't want to open the underbus storage compartment. As there were a lot of people with cases it became a bit of a problem and the cases were sliding all over the place. I think next time I will insist on storing my case in the underneath storage. I had heard someone mention that the cost of transport supplied by the hotel was about 100 euros each way. I thought this was a bit steep. I thoroughly enjoyed my journey from Malpensa airport and saw places that I wouldn't have seen if I had gone by road.
