Reviewed 13 September 2017

We stayed here as part of a group. The owners spoke little English but everyone got by. Breakfast was a continental type with add ons. Plenty of cold meats and cheese, bacon, hard boiled eggs and thin mini ?omelettes. Cereals,yoghurts, fruit juices, breads etc. Dinner comprised of local dishes which you ordered the night before. Some nights the dining room was full to bursting others it was not busy.
Our accommodation was in the annexe on the first floor. . The beds were comfortable. There were shelves but only one drawer and only one hanger for trousers. There was a safe. We had air con but the only natural light came from a glass door out onto a long narrow corridor/ balcony out through the roof. We could get fresh air through the door but the air con was in the roof space so it was noisy when on. The air con was aimed down at you in bed which was uncomfortable.
The bonus was a fridge, the downfall was the plumbing. No separate shower just a hand held shower head on a long hose in the deep bath. No way of taking a shower without soaking the bathroom. The bath plug did not work, no plug in the bidet. The sliding toilet seat was soon mended. Not a good bathroom for a couple of oldies like us.
The swimming pool looked good. They had a few towels to borrow.
Very few comfortable chairs for evenings. Plenty of tables and chairs near the bar.
Having said that we enjoyed the hotel despite its idiosyncrasies.
We used a variety of transport whilst we were there. The bus stops outside( buy your tickets before your journey). Some members of the group walked down the hill to the town through the fields and came back by taxi or bus.
There is a mini market nearly opposite .
The advantage of this hotel is that it is out of town up a winding road. It is in a quiet position with plenty of green space and good parking. We were glad we were not driving as the roads in the towns were very very narrow and twisting with little space to park. The scenery is idyllic particularly when you can see the lake.

Room Tip: Ask for a shower cubicle. The road is 50 yards away and not really busy.

The Hotel Merloni is a nice place to stay if you visit Menaggio. We had a car so the 15 minute drive up the hill from Menaggio was no problem and there is a large free car park. The Hotel is arranged on 3 floors and is set back on the main road from Lake Como to Lake Lugano. Many of he Hotel staff are all the same family and are super friendly, especially Columbina the multi lingual receptionist.. The pool area is a nice place to chill with a drink following a busy day site seeing. The rooms are pleasant and very clean but the shower cubicles are a little small, especially for fat chaps like me. There was always plenty of hot water. The continental breakfast is nice with a good selection that should please all tastes and the coffee is fantastic. The Dinner from the a la carte is excellent both in quality and value. Ricco the good looking waiter is delightful. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this hotel.

Hotel Merloni is a clean family run hotel with a nice view. It is situated about fifteen minutes up the road from the lake, making it the ideal hotel for those who want to stay away from the busy centre but close enough to the lake. The food is delicious but the hotel's largest asset is the staff. All were extremely kind and helpful. Colombina, the receptionist always had a smile on her face and did her utmost to accommodate the residents. Rocco the waiter made sure that everyone enjoyed their meal. We also appreciated when Giuseppe went out of his way to help us. We had a flat tyre and he arranged for it to be fixed while we were out for the day on an excursion, saving us the hassle of trying to find someone ourselves to get it fixed. This meant a lot to us as our holiday was not interrupted. I would like to say thank you to all the staff! I would definitely recommend the hotel to others.

Just got back from a trip to Lake Como..and a weeks stay in this very friendly family run Hotel .We have really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend to anyone who likes the not so busy Como shore lined hotels ..Very quiet ..Very friendly..Very clean ..and very good traditional Italian Food ..If you do not have a car the way down to Lake Como is simple ..buy your ticket from the Bar 100mtrs down the road an use the local bus C12 you buy your return at the same time an it lasts all day if you want it too.We have enjoyed all our holiday in everyway.The trips to Bellagio./.Cruise around the shores of Como./Lugano./ Bernina Train journey up the Alps to St Moritz is a must ..Breath Taking Scenery ..So yes gotta say this Holiday has been amazing

Room Tip: Room 9 has veiws over the pool an the mountains at the rear of hotel ...

We stayed at Hotel Merloni while visiting Lake Como and overall we found this was a comfortable and affordable option for a one night stay. The hotel is roughly a 10 minute drive away from Menaggio, and although it's more elevated in the mountains we found it was far less expensive than hotels located on the lakefront. The owners were very warm and welcoming and we were upgraded to a more comfortable room overlooking the mountains and swimming pool. Our room was spotlessly clean and included air conditioning, a small TV, reliable WiFi, and a bar fridge. We found it was an old but well maintained hotel, you cannot view Lake Como from the hotel but if you have a car it could be a convenient option (free parking is also included). My only nit-pick was the breakfast was a little meagre, but aside from that I would happily stay here again.
