The only negative thing we have over this hotel is their tiny elevator and dark hallways. Everything else is very good. Not modern but very charming hotel. Spacious room, very clean and perfect location ! The staff is friendly and helpful. Will stay here again for sure.

Fine for one night.
+ve: the location, right in the middle of the square. enjoyable al fresco breakfast. Friendly staff. Wifi. Private Parking in their own garage round the corner.
-ve: noisy as our room was 1st floor facing the square so quite noisy until early hours and then people up early. Rooms were tired and could have done with a lick of paint.

Room Tip: We asked for quite too but didn't get one so assume all the rooms are noisy due to its prime lo...

Highly recommended - the location is right on the water as one of the 5 or 6 main hotels along the piazza mazzini. As the whole town works on a very slow one way traffic loop, there's no problems with car noise along the front like you find in some of the lake towns. This is a family run hotel and the people couldn't have been friendlier. With a great restaurant too, the Hotel du Lac is highly recommended and we're already planning our next trip!

Located on the water in the central of Bellagio. This is a solid 3 star hotel.
Pros: location, view of the lake (if your room has one), good service, clean, basic

Cons: old and dated decor/hotel. No frills for sure, service very basic, a/c mediocre, garage a 10 minute walk away, coffee not that great.

Room Tip: the room numbers are very strange and out of order. Request a room with lake view. Be careful of t...

The rooms which front on the lake and have a small balcony are fabulous! This is Italy so it is not the Marriott, but who wants that when in Europe? This charming hotel was very clean, the staff was friendly, and location could not be beat. Bellagio is a fantastic town to visit. We were so glad we had booked the hotel for four nights. The ferry is directly across the small street from the hotel. The rooftop deck has the greatest view in town. We took a bottle of wine and some cheese up there in the evening to enjoy that view...and of course, met other Americans doing the same thing! They have a lovely outdoor porch for breakfast. We arrived by train to Varenna across the lake, but the ferry is a short ride across to Bellagio and very convenient way to travel and visit other small towns on this gorgeous lake. Make sure to take advantage of this mode of transportation to hop off and on visiting other towns. It is so easy! That was a highlight of our trip. You can also see the Swiss mountains in the distance when out on the lake. We highly recommend Hotel du Lac and Bellagio!

Room Tip: Get a room with two windows and french doors that open onto the lake view from a small flowered balc...

The location of the hotel is amazing, right on the lake, and in the center of town.
The views from the hotel are beautiful.
You can find parking right outside the hotel (but it's not free). Free parking is available in town along some streets but around 10-15 minute walk from the hotel.
The hotel is clean, but it's old and worn out..in need of renovation

Hotel du Lac was a great place to stay. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. Rooms were simple and basic. No frills, but clean. Slightly older/dated furnishings. It was very hot during our stay, and the air conditioning wasn't as strong as it could have been. There are shutters on some windows, which helps. Breakfast was a highlight--great selection, and you can eat outside, overlooking the lake. The pool is not on-site--there is a cute trolley that takes you there and back. Can be a bit confusing, but it worked out fine. The location of the hotel is unbeatable, and really what you are paying for when you stay here. We did not eat at the restaurant, but the food looked very nice.

Note: Bellagio is somewhat difficult to get to by car. The drive features a narrow, curved road. Getting to the hotel was a little tricky, but once we were there, parking was fine. Now we understand why not many people drive to Bellagio! Had I known before, we may have taken the ferry...however it did work out OK in the end.

Room Tip: Some rooms are bigger than others, but hard to tell what size room you'll get. The main differen...
