B&B Casa Gentile is located in a quiet residential area of the town and has the rare quality of being 5 minutes' walk from the historic centre and from the lake; it also offers free access to a large garden, parking spaces and a garage.

It is located on the raised ground floor of a late 19th century building, which has always been owned by our family.

Hey from Lidia

Member since May 2014 | 30,255 hits
Hi, I'm Lidia and I manage with my family a little B&B, in the Centre of Como.

I am lucky to live in a very quiet and green place, a few steps from the lake, the old town and the main connections to Milan and airports.

In the past I have traveled a lot and now I am happy to host the world in my big house.

I know perfectly all the most characteristic corners of the lake and mountains that surround it and are very happy when my guests ask for advice and information.

My house is your house!

We really enjoyed our stay over to Casa Gentile. Lidia was incredibly helpful and joyful. The property itself was very clean with everything we needed available to us. Breakfast prepared by Lidia, tasty, Italian and many options to choose from. We stayed in Ortensia room, I would assume it could be a bit cheaper given the fact that we shared the bathroom with another person but thats the only "negative" comment I could make. The location of the property is very close to the funicular and hiking paths around Como. You have just a bit of uphill to climb when walking from the center to the property.

We were staying two nights in the Casa Gentile and enjoying every minute! The lovely villa is situated close to the city centre, but in a quiet area. The rooms are lovely decorated and the beds are very comfortable. Breakfast was utterly delicious with freshly made fruit salad, crispy bread with ham and cheese and self made tartes – the best way to start the day, exploring the beautiful area of Como! Lidia, we thank you and your family once again for the extraordinary stay in your home. You're just the perfect host and we'll return with great pleasure!

We stayed here overnight on our way to Tuscany and were very sorry we couldn't stay longer. Lidia, is a very nice lady who was very helpfull in helping find our way in Como (it was our first time there). her B&B did not steal his name! Above that the property is very beautiful and clean. The location of this beautiful house also couldn't be more perfect. In a quite area of Come, but with only a 10-minute walk to both the lake and the historical centre. Just about perfect. The breakfast is without a doubt one of the best we ever had in Italy. Very fresh and elaborate. With fresh fruit, pastry, great coffee, lovely bread and above all a nice chat with the other guests and Lidia. In short, we were very glad we discovered this gem. We have found ourselves a 'fixed' stopover to the south. Although truth been told, we hope to hope to be able to stay a bit longer than just one night next time. Thank you, dear Lidia for having us.

A 5 mn à pied du Duomo de Come, la Casa Gentile est installée dans une belle maison entourée d'un jardin où on peut stationner sa voiture. Le lieu est parfaitement calme. L'accueil de Lidia est charmant. Elle sait être présente sans s'imposer. La chambre Rose est très confortable, avec de beaux meubles et une décoration soignée. Propreté impeccable. Le petit déjeuner est excellent, copieux et complet. Avec les conseils de Lidia sur Come et sa région ce B&B est parfait. Merci.

Beim liebevoll zubereiteten Frühstück von Lidia fehlte es an absolut nichts, es war alles reichlich da! Die Unterkunft liegt ca. 5 Geh-Minuten vom Altstadtkern entfernt, ganz ruhig, hat einen eigenen Parkplatz und einen tollen Garten. Alles in allem: jederzeit gerne wieder und sehr zu empfehlen! Vielen Dank nochmal an Lidia.

Das Casa Gentile ist ein sehr liebevoll geführtes kleines Bed & Breakfast, Lidia Bianchi Monti eine ausgesprochen freundliche und hilfsbereite Gastgeberin, die eine entspannte Atmosphäre schafft. Ich habe mich in ihrem Haus besonders wohl gefühlt. Die Zimmer, Bad und Frühstücksraum sind geschmackvoll und individuell eingerichtet ohne überladen zu sein und alle Räumlichkeiten sind ausnehmend sauber. Das Casa Gentile befindet sich im Privathaus von Lidia. Es gibt einen schönen Garten und zum Zentrum von Como sind es nur wenige Minuten, die Lage ist also perfekt. Gebucht hatte ich diese Unterkunft unter anderem, weil beschrieben war, dass alle Gäste gemeinsam an einem Tisch frühstücken. Und tatsächlich war das besonders schön, heiter und bereichernd. Lidias Frühstück ist perfekt: fein und seeeehr appetitlich. Nochmals vielen Dank für den schönen Aufenthalt.

Die Unterkunft Casa Gentile macht ihrem Namen alle Ehre. Die Besitzerin ist ausgesprochen freundlich und zuvorkommend, so dass man sich von Anfang an sehr wohl fühlt. Das Frühstück an einem gemeinsamen großen Küchentisch ermöglicht Kommunikation mit den anderen Gästen. Auch außerhalb des Frühstücks stehen Getränke gratis zur Verfügung. Unser ruhiges Zimmer war sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet, die Betten und das Bad waren einwandfrei. Wir waren nur für eine Nacht dort, könnten uns aberauch einen längeren Aufenthalt gut vorstellen.

stayed from 08/26/2019 to 08/29/2019
The answer from the host:
Gent. ma signora Russo, grazie per la sua recensione e le sue gentili parole riguardo la mia persona. Ci dispiace molto per la sua critica che, sinceramente, faccio un pochino fatica a comprendere. Non è previsto nei B&B, al contrario degli appartamenti, che sia l’ospite stesso a fare le pulizie. Ogni giorno mi occupo personalmente del rassetto e pulizia delle camere, dei bagni e delle parti comuni. Pulisco ed igienizzo i bagni ogni giorno. Nelle camere pulisco e lavo i pavimenti giornalmente, spolvero e vuoto i cestini. Il cambio completo degli asciugamani è ogni 2 giorni e delle lenzuola ogni 3 giorni. Ad ogni cambio d’ospite igienizzo anche le maniglie delle porte e faccio la polvere ovunque. Lei ha soggiornato solamente 3 notti quindi ovviamente il cambio delle lenzuola non c’è stato. Non so cosa intenda per “strumenti”, ma sarebbe bastato chiedere e sarei senz’altro venuta in contro al meglio alle sue esigenze. Cordiali saluti, Lidia.

Abbiamo trascorso un weekend sul Lago di Como e siamo rimasti piacevolmente sorpresi e soddisfattissimi non solo per la bellezza del lago e dei suoi paesini ma soprattutto dalla gentilezza di Lidia, veramente ottima anfitriona di questo B&B che offre tutto ciò che si richiede in un tipo di soggiorno come il nostro. Lidia cura personalmente tutti i minimi particolari dalla perfetta pulizia e comodità delle camere alla colazione ottima e abbondante e ancora alla sua piena disponibilità a suggerire e consigliare la miglior fruizione di questi incantevoli luoghi. Insomma una padrona di casa pressoché perfetta e un B&B da consigliare per un sacco di motivi. Sicuramente se torneremo a completare la nostra visita torneremo a soggiornare a Casa Gentile.

B&B Romantico: un soggiorno molto piacevole a casa della signora Lidia, accogliente e premurosa, in una bella camera dal sapore romantico, linda e molto curata. Abbiamo gradito molto le ricche colazioni con pasticceria fresca di giornata. La comoda posizione consente con una breve passeggiata si raggiunge il centro storico, l'imbarcadero, i locali dove mangiare la sera. Siamo stati veramente bene. Grazie e complimenti alla Signora Lidia e alla sua famiglia per la loro ospitalità e un arrivederci a presto, Simona e Renato.

Ottima la posizione a pochi passi dal centro storico ma isolata da confusione e rumori.
