Location is great with walking distance to the lake and touristy, shopping areas. The hotel staff is friendly but their local knowledge is limited to normal routine areas of knowledge and anything beyond that you have to do your own research. We once asked for recommendation of a German restaurant and they sent us to an Italian one. The rooms are decent and minimal. Breakfast is minimal but sufficient. The safe instructions are all in Italian. Probably the key cons is that our rooms face the street and it can be noisy starting at 5:30 am in the morning.

Very warm welcome at this hotel and the check-in staff gave us lots of information about the local area. There is a promotion for all hotel guests in the region to get a Ticino Ticket, which gives free public transport and discounts on many attractions. So factor this in, as you could save one or two days on a Swiss Travel Pass.
Hotel is a little old but is still in great condition. We had breakfast and lunch at the restaurant. Again, the staff were very nice and food was lovely. Room was fine, on 4th floor with lovely views over the hills. It was just warm enough to sleep with the balcony doors slightly open and curtains open, so we could see the stairs and smell the fresh air.
The hotel also provided a cot for our baby which was good quality. One thing we would have liked would be proper shampoo and body wash in the bathroom, as what they supply is a bit too cheap. Also, you get paper cups for tea/coffee, which didn't have any coffee whitener or milk, though they supplied coffee/tea/sugar. But these are just minor things and we would more than recommend this hotel and stay again.
The hotel is 5 minutes from the train station but it's on very steep slopes. Good exercise. Also, it's less than 10 minutes walk to the lake/town centre where all the restaurants and shops are. If you want step free access (i.e. push chair users) to the lake, turn right out of the hotel. Else, turn left and you have a few steps via the church.

The staff member gave us an upgraded room with a view of Lake Como without charge at check-in and without our asking. We appreciated that! The decor is dated, but the comfort of the room was fine. The lobby was dark and gloomy, yet the bar area was comfortable enough for a relaxing drink. The bartender had the most enjoyable mood music playing. We were given good directions for the area, so we have no real complaints.

The hotel is convenient to the train station and within easy walking distance to the center of town and the ferries for lake travel. We had a room in what I would call the rear annex which was through a courtyard from the main part of the hotel. We had a large room along with a unusually large bathroom atypical of many European hotels. Good breakfast (especially the cappuccino) served in a spacious lobby. Staff was helpful and friendly and language was no problem. This hotel and another on the same street are owned by the same people along with an Italian restaurant situated between them. Has a small bar in the lobby where you can get something to drink at any time. The lobby is staffed 24 hours.
Note; As you are walking down via Borgo Vico from the train station it is the second hotel. The first is Borgo Antico. Their restaurant is in between. All on the same side (West) of the street
