My husband and I spent 3 nights in the Cheap and Charm apartment located in the old town of Como, Lago di Como, Italy. We arrived late on a Saturday evening by train (Como Lago Nord station) from Malpensa airport. Stella had sent us directions on how to walk to the apartment from the station, but we had so much luggage we were going to get a taxi. But couldn't see a taxi on arrival at the station, so started to walk. Immediately we felt comfortable when we saw hundreds of people strolling through the Como old town. It only took us 10 min. to walk to the apartment where Stella was waiting for us.
We found the apt. very spacious with every amenity you could ask for. She had prepared a welcome basket of goodies for a breakfast, plus water and milk in the fridge. We were very hungry, so she phoned for a pizza and ran along the street to pick it up for us. Stella is such a very friendly and helpful person.
The apartment is centrally located in the old town just a short walk from cafes, bars, shops and grocery store, plus the wonderful lake front with newly renovated promenade. The apartment itself is one floor above the ground floor, 2 sets of stairs and no elevator. It has a small balcony facing an inner area, but very pleasant for enjoying breakfast or just getting some air.
We enjoyed our stay in Como very much and would certainly recommend Cheap and Charm apartment for 2 or 3 people.
