Although we did not plan to stay at the San Marino (we were moved there when the hotel we had originally booked, the Grand Hotel Britannia Excelsior, lost our booking) we were so glad that we did. The hotel is located above the village of Laglio (where George Clooney has his villa) and meals are served on a terrace overlooking the lake. The food is very good - a selection of pizza, pasta and meat dishes cooked fresh to order, the pizzas in particular are amazing. We saw a number of locals come in to the hotel for dinner, which we think speaks volumes for the quality of the food. The rooms, though basic, are comfortable and clean with a daily maid service. There is also a garden area with gorgeous views of the lake, which includes a pool and sun loungers. Although there is not too much going on nearby, the transport links are great - there is a bus stop immediately outside the hotel (bus number C10) or you can take a walk down to the lake, through Laglio into the village of Urio to catch the ferry. The buses and ferries serve various destinations around the lake (Bellagio in particular is a must see) - it is very easy to get around. Getting to Lake Como from Milan airport is also fairly easy and cheap too - we took a train from Malpensa airport, changed trains at Saronno and came straight into Como before getting the C10 bus along the lake. The staff at the San Marino were faultless - the family work extremely hard and will do absolutely anything for you. For us, it was a taste of the real Italy and we would highly recommend it.
