“Great value basic hotel, fantastic location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2013

We were looking for a cheap place in Menaggio as a base to go hiking from and explore the town, and this was fine for our needs.
Location: very good, on a side street which runs down to the main square in Menaggio. It's only 5 minutes from the ferry terminal. Menaggio is only a small place so nothing is far.
Rooms: we had a shared bathroom room, which was small but clean, and had a sink / cupboard. There was no great view from the window.
Breakfast: corn flakes, bread, ham, cheese, yogurt, spreads, and coffee and orange juice. Overall this was good considering it was included.
Restaurant: there's a restaurant downstairs which has a varied menu, decent pizzas from a wood fired oven (around €6-7 each) and some tasty pastas. It was busy both nights we stayed there.

Overall I would recommend the Albergo Vecchia. It was only €40/night for the room, which seems great value given the location. Staff were really friendly throughout.

Location:
The best way to reach Menaggio is to take a train to Varenna (a village just opposite to Menaggio) from Bergamo or Milan and then take a ferry ride to Menaggio. There is a ferry every 30-45 minutes and the ride takes 10 minutes. Albergo Vecchia Menaggio is located at the city center, very near to the church and the square near Hotel du Lac. From the port, walk to your left to the city square passing Hotel du Lac. From the city square, walk to your right, passing through the tourist information office and then take the first narrow street on your left.

Hotel:
The ground floor of this hotel is a restaurant (great Italian food!) and you have to walk through the restaurant to reach your room. Our room was quiet, bright and airy. It was equipped with a double bed, a small sofa, wardrobe, table and a fan. The staff were friendly, welcoming and English speaking. Unlike other hotels, they didn't ask us to pay upfront during the check-in. We paid during the checkout. The rooms were clean with clean bed sheets. The washroom as a bit small but clean. The house keeping was good and efficient.

Since the hotel is very near to the church, we woke up every morning to the chimes of the church bells. Nice!

Facilities:
The breakfast was limited and very basic consisting of juice, bread, conficture, butter and fresh coffee. There was no wifi available and I guess there is no parking space. The restaurant was real good and full in the evening. One of the nice restaurant with good Italian food. Don't miss it!! The hotel don't organize any activity but you have everything at the door step, including the tourist information office.

Albergo Vecchia Menaggio is one of the cheap hotels in Menaggio (we paid 60 EUR + 2 EUR city tax for a double room) and it was fully worth the money.
