When we first arrived at this hotel we were hot and exhausted! The location was difficult for us to find; but once we knew where it was located, it was easy to find. It's on one of the main, long roads into town. I was somewhat disappointed that the advertised view of Lake Como was at a great distance from our room. Also, we had to step out on our balcony to enjoy this view.
The next surprise was that the hotel is located right next to a church, which rings their bells until 11PM daily. The bells are rung every half hour. The bells are nice to listen to, but not when you are sound asleep!
The couple that runs this hotel are very friendly and willing to please with each request. The wife doesn't speak English very well, but her husbsand makes a decent attempt at it. He was more than willing to meet our requests (like a large glass of ice in our room). They were also both helpful in dealing with bus schedule. It was super convenient that the bus (C12) stopped within 25 feet of the hotel. The stop to return was located right across the street from the hotel. This was very convenient. What wasn't convenient was the reliability of bus schedules in town. Sometimes we had to wait over one hour past the scheduled time.
The location of the hotel in Menaggio was great. We were convenient to the ferries that went to the other cities. You should always check with an employee as you board the ferry that they are heading for your destination..
This hotel offered a very nice breakfast, which is included in your room rate. Also, for an additional charge, they will prepare a nice dinner for you. This is an extra charge, but well worth the convenience and quality of food. All of the employees were very friendly and helpful, even if they spoke little English.
The hotel was spick and span and kept that way. The rooms are not overly decorated, but they are more than adequate. The shower was also clean.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel; and we would gladly stay there if we returned to Lake Como. The city is very central to the others on the lake. After our stay out of the main city of Menaggio, we liked the quiet setting. In town, it is more crowded and noisy. There was also a swimming pool on the premises. Our stay at this hotel added to our fond memories of Italy.
