TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Merloni Menaggio
Reminds me of a 70's family hotel. Which is great by the way. Mainly I am talking about the set breakfast and dinner hours, your room number on your table, which is the same tale every meal. Like a Flag Inn back home in Australia.
The room was clean and functional, although very small. Not enough room to open 2 suit cases.
The pool is great though, there is air on and tv and bar fridge in the room.
And the staff where always helpful and pleasant.
Getting to and from town you have three choices: taxi (€15), bus (~€2) or walk. The walking path is great actually, and obviously easier to walk down to Menaggio than back up. Takes less than 30 minutes down.

... bread rolls. And a spritz. (Made with prosseco (sparkling wine) Apple juice and water). Bellissimo! What a magical spot to have lunch, out on the balcony. Lake and mountain views. Beautiful! After lunch I walk through the hotel's gardens. Beautiful again! Back to Varenna for a spot of last minute shopping (bought some prints of the area) and a huge gelato. Back to my room to pack up. Scraps for dinner ...

She says she will give me an injection, and just before she puts it in, asks if I have any allergies. I reply in the negative and away she goes.
And, after the wait for the local to numb my mouth, she removes the tooth. In fact, the only dramatic thing was the dentist’s chairside assistant getting a sore head because she banged it on the X-Ray ...
... is on Lago Di Como (lake Como). It's across the lake from Bellagio (of George Clooney fame). Took an hour to get there and Greta, my air BnB host was waiting for me. We drove to the BnB. Oh no! It's up 2 flights of stairs. No lift! Greta and I struggled up with my suitcase. I don't know what will happen in Paris. I think it's 8 floors up and no lift. ****! Anyway, got organised with info etc. The Internet is a bit hit and miss. Then went out to ...

... Stews parents were also joining us in Lake Como & they had the drive to deal with too. When we arrived at our new digs in Menaggio, the entire apartment and building was in a blackout from the bad weather. We met the old lady downstairs who kindly brought us candles and little gifts for the kids (we later learnt that her daughter owned the local toy store). We awoke to a sunny Sunday morning and took in the gorgeous views from our 4th ...
