All About Lake Como Cheap Hotels
Lake Como is generally not cheap, nor are Italian hotels in general with the rise of the Euro! Most people will pay on average 150 EUR a night for a hotel right on the lake with first class service. The high season in Lake Como lasts from April to October and prices are highest in the summer months of June and July which also gets the most tourists.

However, this does not mean that budget hotels do not exist. In fact, many Italians have decided to convert their homes into mini-hotels, or bed and breakfasts offering cheap rates to visitors who may be interested. So you can do budget Italian travel in style! Also, in the north you can find agriturismos which are farm holiday houses, offering quiet, rural environments for their guests at attractive prices. See bbplanet.it to search for them.
English is sometimes not spoken at many of these Lake Como cheap hotels so communication may be a little difficult. Here are some phrases you should know to help you book a room:
Avete una camera disponibile? (Do you have a room available?)
Quanti costa una camera per notte? (How much is one room per night)
Camera doppia, camera singola (double room, single room)
