We had a wonderful time here. Manuela and her daughter Mikaela were so friendly. The view from our balcony overlooked the lake. The breakfast was very varied and delicious. Best we had in all our stays in Europe!!!
Would definitely come back to Lake Como and stay at Hotel Garni Corona again

Room Tip: Ask fior a balcony with a view of the lake

We stayed here 7 nights (1-8 October) and were more than happy with this hotel. We noticed many hotels on the western side of the lake (Tremezzo etc) were situated close to the busy main road - no road issues here, it's well set back from a very minor lakeside road. Menaggio is an excellent location on the lake with good boat and bus connections. No need for a car! You can also get the bus to Lugano in Switzerland. The hotel has several good restaurants and a splendid gelateria right nearby. It's only five minutes walk to the lake boats, and the extremely helpful tourist office is next door.

We had Room 24 on the 2nd floor - large comfortable room, large comfortable bed, large balcony overlooking the attractive piazza with a fabulous view across the lake to Bellagio. We wish the weather had been warm enough to use the balcony more often! Everything was very clean. Good breakfasts - cereals, fruit, home-made yoghurt, cold meats, cheese, eggs, fresh rolls and cakes. Room safe. Free and fast wi-fi in the communal areas and plenty of sitting room on the landing to use it. I can't understand the previous reviewer's complaints about the staff. We found them friendly and charming. Booking with their website was easy and efficient.

Any problems? The bathroom could have been slightly better designed, toilet was very close to the shower, a bit of a tight fit! In the height of the season you could possibly get noise from the restaurant below, but when we went, most people were sitting inside.

If you like a friendly small hotel, excellently located with a great view, this could well be the one for you. It's not expensive, so do pay a little extra for a lake view room.

Room Tip: Make sure you book a lake view.

We were on a motorbiking trip through the Alps and Italy in Sept - at the there is a good place right in front for motorbikes which is good. It is a very short stroll to the edge of Lake Como. The room was a decent size. That is about the only good things. The main thing that let the Hotel down was the reception we received. Considering they advertise themselves as a family run establishment - the reception and general welcome was Very basic, no friendliness or even an attempt to offer any assistance/guidance to the surrounding area. No info given on the hotel amenities either. Breakfast was basic. I would not recommend this Hotel if you want warm friendly staff.

We stayed in a lake view balcony room, no 4 on the first floor. The view from the balcony is amazing. The room and bathroom were spacious with a great shower. It was cold and rainy when we were there so we didn't use the balcony but it would be lovely to sit out in good weather. We appreciated coming back from a long day to a centrally heated comfortable room.

We did miss not having tea/coffee facilities in the room but this is a very minor thing. The bed was very firm (which seems to be the norm in Italy).

The hotel is central and easy to get to by boat or bus and overlooks a piazza. It might get noisy in the balcony rooms in the height of the tourist season as there is a restaurant directly below the hotel and seating outside. We can highly recommend the restaurant, excellent food and service.

The hotel staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast provided was good.

Overall, a very comfortable hotel and room, fantastic view, friendly staff, and good value.

Room Tip: Would recommend a lake view balcony room.

We spent 5 winderful nights in this delightful hotel on piazza in Menaggio overlooking Lake Como. Small balcony perfect for evening drink before wandering to one of many great cafes on piazza and close by. After visiting many villages close to Menaggio, we were extremely happy with our choice and would definitely return. Sisters who run reception and breakfast are very helpful and friendly. Not a shiny modern hotel, but extremely comfortable, clean and great breakfast. Highly recommend.

This is a really nice place, small family run hotel just off the promenade with a spectacular view across the lake.

Located in the pedestrian area on the charming small square with cafes and restaurants, it is convenient for those coming to Menaggio by bus and boat as their stops are only a short walk away.

If you are looking for a place that combines tranquility and pleasure, look no further.
