While we were in Menaggio, we were recommended to try il Vapore in the town centro. The Ristorente reminded me of days gone past, with home made pasta and Italian bread. The service was second to none and he menu was first class. the prices were not to high for this location and we were very happy with our evening

This restaurant was recommended by Tripadvisor, as well as our Travel Rep. You were not wrong. Family run, with a good menu offering an excellent selection, pastas, meat and fish dishes, all freshly cooked. The family treat you as a friend rather than a customer, table for the night, and you can make a reservation. Well worth a visit, and... More

Stayed here with a friend last week and was pleasantly surprised. The room was clean and the hosts were very friendly and helpful. Although the bathroom was a bit small, the room itself was spacious and the bed was comfortable. The location can't be beat for menaggio; it is right off the main square. For the price, Albergo Il Vapore... More

There are things to like about Albergo Il Vapore. The host is friendly. The rooms are clean. Towels are changed every day and the bed is made for you every day. A nice touch. It’s close to Lake Como and it’s close to shops and restaurants in the pretty town of Menaggio. Unfortunately there are things that can’t be overlooked.... More

As a 1-star hotel, I was happy to see previous reviews were right - family-run hotel, very friendly, and very Italian. Right next to good quality, inexpensive restaurants and 2 minutes from the ferry dock. The town is a quiet place to stay and very pretty to wander around, especially at night (after the people staying at the other villages... More

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. They have a lovely restaurant with that we are twice at with good Italian food and coffee. The family owners are genuinely happy, caring and very helpful. Simone... More
