Hotel Du Lac
Via Mazzini 27
22017 Menaggio
Lago di Como

A true find, this place is a keeper. Clean room, very clean bathroom and everything worked. The bedding was comfortable, the balcony overlooking Garibaldi Square and Lake Como from the room was over the top.
Here is the bonus, the hotel rooms are above a café bakery and the aroma from 5 AM on will drive you nuts. The coffee is the best. The hotel is an easy 5 star location and the family that owns it runs it. They are kind, very efficient in all you ask. The price for the stay w/breakfast was very reasonable. We have made new friends here.

Room Tip: Ask for the Balcony over the square, but I'm sure all the rooms are great.

Perfectly located in the heart of Menaggio with an outstanding view of the lake. We were fortunate enough to get a room (309) on the top floor that had a private balcony overlooking the plaza and Lake Como. The hotel itself was very nicely appointed, spotlessly clean and comfortable. There was even some English speaking TV channels!
The parking situation is well managed, with a private and secure lot available within walking distance. (There is a fee)
Highly recommended.

Nice cafe situated right on Menaggio . We had lovely pizzas and pasta . Quite expensive for what it is ! Nice views and you are close to the ferry terminal to Varenna and Bellagio. Lovely tables and chairs to sit outside in warm weather .

Went over on the ferry from Varenna. Nice little hotel on the main square overlooking the lake. Also serves as a bar with tables and chairs to the front and rear. Ideal for people watching. Best pint of lager & pizza I had in the Lake Como region. Reasonably priced too. Very chilled spot and the service was good. Would recommend.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The location was excellent, we had secure parking for our car and our room had lovely lake views. The top floor terrace was a really perfect spot for photos too. I had to be up early and get the ferry to Varenna to catch the 8.35 am train into Milan and the staff were helpful with giving me all the info. The town is fun, very lively, lots going on. We enjoyed strolling around in the evening and watching the world go by. Wifi worked well.

My father & I shared the top floor double for 4 nights. The lift worked great! We had a window view down to the Piazza Garibaldi on one side. The other side had a private door to the outside onto a private rooftop deck. We could see Bellagio directly across the Lake. We sat out here most nights and watched the lights come up along the Gulf of Venus. It was perfectly enchanting and beautiful. We parked our car in one of two garages owned by the Hotel, and this worked out fine. The outdoor café on the Piazza Garibaldi was great for watching people and the ferries going back and forth. The Hotel is family owned and operated, and they couldn't have been more professional and helpful The food from the Hotel's Café Centrale was delicious, authentic and affordable. I would not hesitate to recommend Hotel du Lac, and will stay here whenever I visit Lake Como.

Room Tip: The top floor double has a private rooftop deck with a fabulous view of the Lake.

Stayed about a week in August. Agree with the previous reviewer about "the owners trying a bit, but not hanging out the bunting". If you want a quiet room with balcony and lake view, book room 208. We've stayed there twice and it's very nice, well decorated and spacious. The room was clean upon arrival and maintained reasonably well during our stay. Avoid the hotel breakfast, it's poor and not worth the money! The best food is found at DiPaolo's - avoid texting your reservation and reserve a table well in advance if you want to eat outside.Their fish, especially, is excellent!

I swam practically every day in the lake - other than that there's not a lot to do in Menaggio. For sightseeing use the boat service, which is good, and make sure you visit Belaggio.
