“Wonderful Views of Lake Como”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

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.

Room Tip: if possible ask for a room with views of the Lake.

Had a fantastic night here. Highly recommend for the location and great view of the lake. Clean rooms with nice bathroom. Simple breakfast but with a view of the lake. Hard to beat especially with discounted off season rate.

Stayed here for two night after booking direct with hotel on recommendation of a friend. Fantastic location with very genuine friendly staff. Breakfast included which was ok...coffee delightful. Room small but a to die for view. Very clean. Recommended if you are staying for say up to 3 nights and using Como as base. The view over the lake from 210 is fantastic.

Room Tip: Room 210. Balcony with fantastic lake views. Its on second floor. No lift.

Just got home from Italy and we stayed at the Hotel Marco while in Lake Como on September 28-29. It was wonderful the staff was so helpful and kind. The breakfast each morning was delicious. The hotel is right by the water so the view we had was amazing.
I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Lake Como.

Room Tip: no elevator

Overnight stop only, but if em had been here longer the room would have been too small. But comfortable bed, good restaurant and very clean. Great staff, all the ones we met couldn't have been more helpful.

We stayed at Hotel Marco's on the last night of our holiday. Lake Como is a lovely area and the Hotel overlooks the Lake. We had two rooms with a lake view and a small balcony. The rooms were quite small but perfectly adequate and had a large bathroom with good shower. The room had air conditioning. The staff were good and even took our cases to our rooms. They recommended lots of places to visit and the area is surrounded with bars and restaurants. We ate in the hotel restaurant and the food and value was excellent. Como town is also wonderful with a good range of shops, bars and restaurants. I would definitely recommend this Hotel. The only downside if you have a car is that the parking is very limited and is on first come, first served basis. We parked down the street in a metered area but it was not expensive. We had to leave in the morning before breakfast was served but they did offer us coffee and a brioche. Breakfast is served on the terrace over looking the lake which is stunning.

We stayed in hotel marco on lake como, had a front room with a lake view, very small rooms and a bit noisy, lake como wears very tired looking and in need of some sprucing up, we came from stressa on lake maggorie which is so much better, we took the ferry along the lake to Bellargio
Which is full of shops and restaurants I would not go back here
