Traveled in mid-june 2014 which proved to be an excellent time to visit Menaggio and lake Como. We were very happy with Albergo il Vapore, it's conveniently located right in the centre of Menaggio, close to boat rentals, small shopping area, and all the restaurants. Hotel is family run and has a cozy, relaxed feel. Our room was spacious for... More

If you want to visit Lake Como on a budget, this is the place to stay. Very friendly family run business, gorgeous food and coffee, It is in the perfect location, just off a lovely square and minutes to the lake. Our rooms were cleaned on a daily basis and we were given new fresh towels everyday. The beds weren't... More

As our corrupt president slowly sends our currency down the toilet value for money for exchange challenged South Africans is vital to survive. The Albergo II Vapore proved to be just that. Situated in a pretty little courtyard looking onto the lake surrounded by resturants I almost felt like a normal Pound/Euro/dollar rich traveller. The rooms are clean beds great... More

The location & staff are wonderful. That's where it ends. We had room 21 with a great view of the lake, and being directly above the kitchen gave us the unbelievable noise in this old building. There were sounds like someone was prying open a stuck door followed by what sounded like them hauling the door back as far as... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for 3 nights. This simple hotel is comfortable and relaxing. Our room had a good bed and a balcony with a small view of the water.

This area is very expensive for lodging. Il Vapore was a great price and did the trick. The beds were comfortable. The WiFi worked. The staff was very, very nice. You are one block from Lake Como, surrounded by fantastic restaurants. For the price, this place certainly can't be beat.

I stayed here with my family (we are all adults now!) for a week. We took over three double rooms. All were at the front of the hotel, and had incredible views of the lake and mountains. This is a charming place, which is family-run by a very welcoming mother and son team! They gave us some great local tips... More
