first of all, this hotel is located right across from the ferry, so you don't have to carry your things very far. i only stayed here one night, but found it to be a charming, clean hotel with a great location in the heart of town. breakfast on the terrace facing lake como was amazing and i had time to make use of the pool facilities (located at bellagio sporting club, a 20 minute walk away) as well, which was great on such a hot summer day. would definitely stay here again!

My husband and i stayed at Du Lac for 2 nights in July. We asked for a room with a balcony, and wow was it worth it! Room 60, ask for it. HUGE closet and very nice balcony with a perfect and breathtaking view of the lake and mountains. Having a glass of wine on the balcony before dinner was possibly the best part of our time there. The staff were very friendly and helpful, breakfast was included, and the hotel was clean and nice. The only issue we ever had was just the last day the bathroom had an odor as if there were some sewer issues, but this was just a minor note that didnt bother us since the rest of our stay was so great there. We highly recommend it. By the way, it is steps from the ferry stop, which makes traveling with luggage so much easier...

Great location facing the lake, good restaurant downstairs, rooms are average, very basic decor and bathroom fixtures. Heard from other travellers staying in similar price range hotels in Bellagio that they all are like that.

We stayed for a week, and we definitely chose a good hotel. The location is convenient - right opposite the ferry dock.

Our room was at the rear of the hotel, with only a side view of the lake from the balcony, but it was a very good size, with plenty of storage space and two desks. The decor was very simple - white walls with green and white patterned upholstery on the chairs. Free wifi was available, and worked well.

Breakfast is a buffet in the first floor restaurant, with a good range of choices. We also had dinner on the ground floor terrace one evening. The food was very good (though not the best we encountered in Bellagio).

The staff were very helpful.

I would thoroughly recommend this hotel. Just beware of the birds when eating on the terrace - they have no fear!

We were relieved to get off the ferry with luggage and see Hotel du Lac right THERE! We were worried about transportation. The staff was amazing and helped a lot with all requests. We did have a suite with a terrace, so our view was out of this world! The only downside was the quality of the breakfast. The fruits were mainly canned, and the options were limited. I did ask for an omelet, and they did bring it to me every day.

Room Tip: The pool and fitness center are a ways a way if that is important to you. We were not concerned wit...

We stayed for the entire month of June, 2013, and loved every minute of it. Luca Leoni, the owner, sets the tone with exemplary aplomb and skill and a wonderfully positive attitude ... This permeates its way down though the management and staff team ... Best of all, it is a family business that knows the value of making guests feel right at home ... My suggestion is to pay the extra few Euros for a view of the lake ... But even is you don't, you'll have great views during breakfast, up on the roof garden, and at their street level Bellagio Restaurant, where the food is well worth the price and the quality is high ... After a month at the Du Lac, I almost feel like family myself ... Suggestions from Graziano Gandola, the Du Lac manager, were spot on ... Everything from finding the best steak, the best pizza, and great places to visit on our excursions around the lake to our more adventurous day trips to Switzerland and nearby hill towns and valleys ... I would characterize the Du Lac as clean, comfortable, no-nonsense service with a flair for the personal touch that give a guest that extra little smile to start their day and a relaxing comfort of "coming home" at the end of a day after galavanting about and taking in the beauty of Bellagio and Lake Como ... When in doubt about where to eat, the Bellagio Restaurant always came through with good food ... They even went out of their way and prepared a picnic lunch for us and a late night dinner after their regular kitchen hours ... It's tough to find a place that does these things ... So, kudos to the Du Lac, and to the wonderful people who make it so nice. Best of all, it's conveniently located.

The location is great in the centre of Bellagio overlooking lake Como, getting there by car is a nightmare due to one way system and narrow streets full of pedestrians.
Would recommend reserving a garage which are a short walk from the hotel.
The staff are very friendly but the hotel needs a refurb particularly the bathrooms which in our case was dark and poorly appointed.
Breakfast was not inspiring but no worse than many European hotels.

Room Tip: Ask to see bathroom first
