Springtime at Lake Como - BLISS! This part of Italy is ravishingly beautiful, and is particularly wonderful in springtime with all the flowers in bloom. Hotel Marco's provided the perfect base for exploring all the delights of the town and the lake and its villages.
Hotel Marco's is located at the eastern end of Como town, very close to the waterfront, but about 300 metres from the main piazza and the quay. This is an advantage, as the location is pleasantly quiet. The hotel is very close to the Funicular Railway, which is a cable car that takes visitors up to the top of the mountain for spectacular views of the countryside.
Hotel Marco's is small, personalised, unpretentious and good value for money. The hotel is family owned and run, and this shows in the excellent and courteous service provided. My room was light, bright, spotless and modern. Decent bar fridge, ample closet space, and a nice balcony to sit out and enjoy the vista. A very generous sized and well appointed bathroom.
The hotel has a high quality pizzeria and restaurant at ground level, out front across the road from the water. This eatery is very popular with locals - always a good sign. Although there was some noise from the restaurant leaking into the room, the windows and balcony door are double glazed, and it was not a problem late at night. The hotel's breakfast room provides a generous and tasty continental style buffet breakfast.
I stayed two nights at Hotel Marco's and wished I could have stayed longer. It was one of the best hotels I experienced in Italy, because, although it is not luxurious, it is very comfortable. What you see, what you pay for, is what you get.
