My friend and I had a wonderful stay at this B&B. The property was well-placed (near train station and ferry port, and has a beach nearby) and the rooms were very clean and comfortable. The quality to price ratio was 2: 1 for us, so we told Gianni (the innkeeper) that we would gladly pay more next time.
A couple of things to note: the breakfast was hearty but it's a traditional Italian breakfast of coffee, baked goods, and yogurt. If you're an American, don't expect there to be eggs and meat. But nevertheless, we were very full before we set out on our adventures in the morning. The other thing is that Mandello is accessible by train and ferry but not in the later hours. If you are going to stay here, email the inn and Gianni will help you figure out the timetables (like he did for us), since they are in Italian.
Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at this inn. Gianni and his family were wonderful hosts (he's also extremely funny) and our room was large and spotless. We also really enjoyed being in Mandello because it was close to the water, but there were way less tourists than on the western side of Lake Como. You get a more local feel for the area, and Gianni will give you good recommendations for places to eat that are delicious and not too expensive.
I would come stay here again, and recommend it to all my family and friends.
