We have just returned from a short trip to a water and pump exhibition in Milan and enjoyed three lovely evenings at the Hotel Marcos on the edge of Lake Como. This is a small family run hotel, the staff were extremely friendly and hard working. English is spoken. Rooms are basic however more than adequate.
Our room had a fantastic view of the Lake with a balcony which looked magical at night with its twinkling lights.
A good continental buffet breakfast is served not just cakes, bread and jam.
The hotel also boasts an excellent restaurant where they offer 5% discount for guests and 10% discount off a sister restaurant. They have a wood burning pizza oven which unfortunately we did not try as we made the mistake of having a pizza elsewhere. They make their own bread and focaccia which was excellent and each morning we were awoken by the glorious aroma of freshly made bread.
Views from the restaurant overlook Lake Como which we are certain would be highly sort after during the summer months.
There is limited free parking for guests which was no problem for us as it was mid week.
Not suitable for disabled as there is no lift.
The hotel is easy to find just head for the funicular, in fact the restaurant is called The Funicular.
We would certainly recommend this hotel and will be going back in the near future.
