Albergo Breglia
Ranked #1 of 3 Plesio B&B and Inns
Reviewed 5 June 2013

The staff here were very friendly and helpful. There is a lovely terrace to sit out on and restaurant was good. It is in a village so a bus ride away from Menaggio, but a great quiet place if you are hiking etc. Rooms and bathroom size fine and clean. Staff made us lunches to take on our walks.

We didn't stay at the Albergo, we went for lunch on a very hot slow day. And what a surprise! Fresh baked pizza with a crust to rival fresh bread at 5 am on a city morning, covered with excellent tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella and prosciutto crudo. Amazing, what a find. Only open for the summer season, well worth the trip up the mountain.

This hotel was a surprise. It is a delightful place to stay, although well above the town of Menaggio, so it might not suit if you want to be right down near the water. The staff are friendly and helpful, the food at all meals plentiful and delicious. My room was spacious and comfortable, with a lovely outlook and little deck. The bathroom was also good and very clean.

This hotel punches well above its 2 star rating.
Our room was spacious and spotless, the dining although a limited menu was very well done and the chef took great pride in serving us.

We were booked into this hotel by a walking group and the information provided said we would be staying in Menaggio so we were surprised when we got to Menaggio that we turned up a side street and travelled up a narrow winding road for 30 - 40 minutes until we got to Albergo Breglia. Breglia appears to be a small community of about 20 or so houses, this hotel, a church, cemetry and a public phone box. At some time in the past, the hotel may have had a view to Lake Como but houses have been built in front of the hotel and these block any view that may have been there in the past.

While very clean, the rooms are fairly sparce. There is a TV and a phone but no laundry facilities, no wi fi or internet facilities, almost transparent window covers that let the light into the room from early morning, minimal hot water at peak times, in-room heaters that operate intermittently in the mornings and evenings (sometimes they need to be reminded to turn them on) (early May). The rooms do have en suites and there is a hair dryer. Staff are friendly but have limited English. Buses to Breglia cease running about 7.00pm so you're stuck with paying a taxi if you decide to have a night out in civilisation and don't have your own car.
Breakfast and most evening meals were provided as part of our walking tour package. Breakfast was quite adequate but the evening meal lacked substance or presentation and was priced similarly to cafes and restaurants near the lakefront, though not as appetising.
It is difficult to imagine what would encourage people to stay here, although there were other guests there at the time of our group's stay. To have to negotiate a long narrow winding road each time you wanted to travel to or from the lakefront and having no view of the famous Lake Como would detract most people from staying here. Price would appear to be the only incentive.
