“Need a car”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

This hotel is basic, it felt a little like you were staying in a room in someones house rather than a hotel. We were in a room that was for three with a balcony overlooking the lakes, nice views. Only two of us stayed but would have been quite small if three people was staying in it. I noted that the shower doors had a lot of soap marks, like it had not been cleaned in some time. this didnt impress me.
The pool was lovely, clean, but quite deep!!!
The breakfast was average, no toaster for bread in the mornings, also no fridge in the bedroom. No air con. safe has a key to lock which kind of defeats the purpose.. would rather one that you can set a code on.
However, the main problems with this hotel is it is quite far from menaggio and the walk downhill (20 mins) involves having to walk along a busy and dangerous road in part. Due to the dangerous road, walking uphill to the hotel is simply not an option at night.
The hotel is also situated beside a church that rings its large bell at 7am every half hour until 9.30am making it impossible to have a lie in.
The hotel staff were very pleasant but have very little english, however we got by.
I would not return to this hotel.

We spent a week at this hotel on our journey trough Europe.

This is a family run hotel on top of the city of Menaggio. Just a short drive from the center.
We booked a room with balcony and had the joy of a beautiful view over lake Como.
We had a room for three so it was large, with a spacious bathroom.

It was so warm during our stay, and the room had no air-con (we were provided with a fan after some days, I'm sure if we`d asked we would've got it immediately). The swimming pool saved our lives i think!

Free wifi and parking!

We had a fantastic stay, i must say that the level of service and friendliness the staff provided was excellent!

They served home cooked food of high quality.

Thank you so much for a perfect stay!

Room Tip: You must have a room with lake view!

This year was our 4th stay and we will come back. Our two children of 9 and 12 years loves to come to this very friendly little place with Giagomo and his wife.

Vi er en dansk familie på 4 som kommer på dette dejlige lille familie drevne hotel. Vores børn føler sig hjemme, og nærmest bor i poolen og selv betjener sig med is. Super mad og meget rent hotel af høj standard til prisen.

Stayed on May.

Hotel is really clean and comfortable. The couple who run it are extremely nice & helpful.

Few minutes driving to the center, and about 20 minutes walk.

Breakfast was good, great coffee..

Can only echo what everyone else has said about this hotel. It's such a lovely welcoming place and the owners are what make this hotel a special one. The room was large, bright and clean and a lot of them have great views. There isn't any air-con and you can hear the traffic (and the church bells!!) if you leave the window open but we survived with the window closed and the fan that was provided switched on low. I would imagine heat will only be a problem in the height of summer and even then it cools down greatly at night. It really wasn't a problem for us all the same. The pool area is nice and the view spectacular. There is car parking and if you don't get a space, as they are limited, there are some public ones right beside the hotel which are free at night. We took the car down to Menaggio as the hill is VERY steep and it's relatively far. We considered walking (briefly!) but in the heat, the thought of climbing back up wasn't the most appealing!
I honestly can't recommend this hotel enough. I was sad to leave and would definitley stay there again. :)

A fantastic family run hotel where you felt welcome from the moment you crossed the doorstep. The hotel showed flexibility and friendlieness to two families of 5 and all requests were answered with a "nulla problema" attitude! Even though the hotel is a steep walk from Menaggio centre, it is an excellent starting point for exploring both Lake Como and Lake Lugano and at night it was a perfect retreat from the "busy" downtown area

Room Tip: Try to avoid rooms facing the main road, busy from 0530!

The family run hotel is a gem. The warm and welcoming hosts made sure we had a wonderful holiday. The breakfast is very nice, but try to have dinner there - it is truly a great experience. Everything is home cooked and tastes delicious. And the wine was excellent. There is a very nice pool area.
