Reviewed 21 September 2013

I really have a thing for piazzas, and other forms of town squares, and the one in Menaggio has a lake-side view of Belaggio and Veranna. Hotel GC is right on the the piazza, and our lake-view room overlooked it. Everything is close to the hotel, from parking along the lake to the lovely lakefront, restaurants, bars, shops and gelatto. The ferry terminal is just a few blocks down the road, and the water taxi is right out front.

Our room looked freshly redone and full of light. Really large by European standards too. We didn't have any trouble with noise. I made reservations a few days in advance, and was very comfortable with the value of the room for it's very reasonable price.

Room Tip: We were in an end room on the second floor, so we had a little balcony off the bathroom, which suite...

We have just spent 3 nights at this adorable hotel. The location is perfect, uninterrupted views of Lake Como, restaurant underneath, bar next door, close to quaint town square & only 5 minute walk to the ferry. The breakfast room is lovely, sitting facing the lake, enjoying the view. Menaggio is by far the better option to stay in, having seen other villages, we were happy going back to our little slice of heaven.

We have just returned from spending a wonderful holiday based out of the Hotel Garni Corona. Our room was ideal, situated at the front of the hotel with a balcony providing uninterrupted views of Lake Como.

The location of the hotel could not have been better - providing convenient access to the numerous local restaurants and bars and also for access to public transport (buses, boats and Trenino!).

Excellent breakfast provide by friendly, welcoming and helpful staff.

Would definitely return - and recommend.

We stayed here for one night on our European Road trip. We had camped the night before (at Lake Piano) and also climbed to Refuggio Menaggio above the Lake in the mountains that day so the warm welcome, great shower, huge spotlessly clean room with balcony overlooking the lake and massive bed with crisp white sheets and were a real boon :o) We even had a Juliet balcony in our bathroom! Really liked this hotel and surprisingly good value considering where it was - over looking Lake Como in the centre of Menaggio. Great little town and great little hotel. Breakfast were superb and plentiful and the little table we had by the window was very romantic. It really felt like a taste of Italy - but without vast amounts of tourists! Loved it and would definitely recommend. Don't let the dated lobby put you off either as it's not an indication of the rooms AT ALL :o)

Room Tip: It's definitely worth paying the few extra euros for a balcony at the front overlooking the lake...

All the buildings in the area are of an old world style. This is just the same with the added features of old style furniture. However, the facilities although old in appearance were comfortable and modern under the façade. Car access is difficult and there is no private parking. We parked on the road outside which is free overnight and reasonably priced during the day. The problem is finding a space within walking distance of the hotel. The hotel overlooks the lake with wonderful views and is on a pedestrian square in the centre of the village. The hotel has no restaurant but there are plenty of restaurants in the surrounding streets to suit all pockets and tastes.

Hotel location was excellent, overlooking the Lake. Some nice restaurants nearby.

Room was not very well ventilated and the floor was very hot to walk on from something below. There was a fan, but sleeping was difficult, I appreciate the time of year that we went, but even on a cooler day with rain, the room was still uncomfortably warm.

We stayed here for two nights in August. We were amazed how central the location was for seeing the Lake and being in the bustle of the town. The price of the hotel was extremely reasonable for where this hotel was.

Parking for motorbikes was free locally and parking was plentiful.

The hotel is located with a restaurant underneath and did not pose an issue for noise.

The rooms were a good size with original wooden floorboards. Due to the time of year and the heat our room also had a floor standing fan which came in very handy throughout the night. The bathroom was small and compact but was not a problem as we spent little time in the room when the scenery outside was so good.

Breakfast was continental and there were many choices. The fruit bread was definitely a favorite! Staff offered tea and coffee but as myself and my partner did not drink hot drinks we stuck to the juices. The staff picked up on this so provided us with a small jug of juice for our table to stop us from going up and down to the buffet. The following day when we entered the breakfast room the jug of juice was bought to us. This was a nice personal touch.

The hotel is a family run hotel and everyone is happy to help. The receptionist spoke fantastic English and was very helpful when we consistently asked questions about the local attractions.
The hotel has WiFi access which can be used in the individual rooms and was free.

This hotel is a must if you are going to Lake Como. The area is perfect and the hotel I could not fault. We had a great time here and when we go back to Lake Como we will certainly book to stay at Hotel Garni Corona.
