Reviewed 15 July 2013

Well travelled friends reccommended we stay here and we are very glad we took their advice on board. Most people visiting Lake Como tend to stay in Bellaggio, however we found the smaller lakeside town of Menaggio (where the hotel is located) to be a far more relaxing and authentic experience.

The hotel is located on the lake in the main square in Menaggio, surrounded by great little cafes and restaurants. We had a gorgeous lake facing room with a balcony on the third floor. The rooms was clean and spacious. There was no air conditioning, but a fan was provided. The bathroom was clean but a little cramped.

Our only criticism was that the wifi didn't work in our room, only out in the hallways and restaurant, but that wasn't a big problem.

The breakfast, served in the level 1 restaurant, was excellent and the staff were very helpful, providing some great restaurant and activity recommendations and arranging our travel for us when leaving.

Room Tip: Choose a lake front room, we loved our room with double sized balcont on the third floor.

It's located just in front of the lake at menagio. Clean, simple hotel. They got nice coffee for breakfast, bread, cheese. Nice lake view while eating. You have to request for wifi password when you checked in the hotel, then only they will pass you the user name and password. The fan in the room is a bit noisy. And you may heard shower sound from the room next door. So, it's quite annoying when heard any weird sound. Other than that, everything is alright. But, I may choose staying at belagio instead if menagio in future, maybe belagio seems more shops or happening when we doing day trip.

We requested a room with a lake view when we booked our room. Little did we know that our room also faced the road, the motor-bike parking area and the outdoor restaurants and bar seating areas. With no air-conditioning in June, it was warm enough to need the windows open at night and it was so noisy until midnight and later that it was difficult to sleep. The noise of delivery trolleys, leaf blowers and motor bikes leaving commenced around 7am in the morning which made sleeping in also difficult. If noise isn't an issue for you, this is a great hotel. The breakfasts are good, the room generous and comfortable, there is a lift and the staff are friendly and helpful. There is no parking on-site but we found a free parking spot on the street about 5 minutes walk away.

The location was lovely—situated on a quaint lake-front square in Menaggio. Our room didn't have a lake view, however it was clean although fairly basic. The breakfast was excellent. A perfect home base for exploring Menaggio and the other towns along the lake.

We have just come back after 4 nights at Hotel Garni Corona and enjoyed it immensely. We had a great room with balcony overlooking the Lake, complete with chairs and table. With the french doors open we were home from home. The location is fantastic being right in the square, a choice of bars, restaurants and an ice cream parlour literally within metres of the hotel door. Our room was light and airy with plenty of storage space and an enormous bed. If you want to explore Lake Como by ferry the main terminal is 5 minutes walk away and if you just want to sit in a bar and 'people watch' it couldn't be better placed. I liked the fact that you were in such a central position but by 10pm it was so quiet. We slept with the french doors undone as it was very warm when we were there.

Room Tip: Ask for a Lake View Room. even if it costs more its worth every penny (Well Euro)

The Hotel Garni Corona is beautifully situated on a small square fronting Lake Como. We had a room for three nights with two "French" balconies (We could open the french doors for the view and breeze, but there was no outside balcony.), and the views were spectacular. The room (#25) was simple and very clean, with a decent bathroom - no bidet, but a shower you can turn around in! Staff was courteous and pleasant, when answering our questions or dealing with a request.
We loved Menaggio. There are plenty of places to eat there, from restaurants to pizza places, and nothing beats being able to sit on the square in the evening and have an digestivo - we had lemoncellos at adjacent Cafe del Pess for 2 euros each - with a beautiful view of the lake and the people strolling the walkway along its edge.
The lake ferries are frequent on the Menaggio/Bellaggio/Varenna circuit and the station is less than a 10 minute walk away from the hotel. Bellagio and Varenna are a 15-20 minute enjoyable ride away. And Hotel Corona was a good value for us at 110 euros per night (with a 3-night discount). We definitely recommend this hotel and Menaggio as a base for exploring Lake Como.
Ferry note: the "fast" ferry takes an hour or so to go from Menaggio to Como and arrives a couple of blocks from the Como Nord station for trains to Milan. Fare is 13 - 16 euros, depending on day and discount.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the lake.
