“You can go back”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

First time we went to Bellagio was in 1987. Fairly undiscovered except for the Italians who summer vacationed there. It was a very good experience and we wanted to see how things had changed since being discovered.
We picked Hotel Du Lac because it was right next to the ferry landing and in the center of town activities. We arrived late (missed flight from Frankfort) but hotel staff was there waiting for us. The helped find a parking place, carried our luggage to our rooms, and generally most gracious hosts. The have a restaurant upsstairs on a balcony (not owned by hotel but owner made us feel like we were his best friends) that fed us a very good late dinner with local wines. Our rooms were large with private balcony, a/c, with electric shade to mask the ship docking and chruch bell ring on the hour. The town had excellent shopping and numerous other very good restaurants. If you are going to Bellagio we recommend this hotel (priced fairly) and very good staff to make your stay most enjoyable.

Room Tip: We like the private balcony rooms to sit and have coffee looking out on the lake.

We had a superb dinner on P. Mazzini in Bellagio at Hotel du Lac. Food was exquisite and service exceptional. Just perfect! The pastas and fish (tuna from the Med.) were prepared perfectly and were delicious. While this restaurant might appear to cater to tourists, our dinner could not have been better. Great location, too.

The perfect old-style hotel right on the quayside in this beautiful town on Lake Como. We had hoped for atmosphere and good service - we got loads of both.
The staff are warm, friendly and efficient - a broken bathroom light-bulb was changed in minutes, parking our rather large car was sorted efficiently, the Receptionist was delightful.
We loved the constant coming and going of the numerous ferries and water-taxis and the views across the lake are marvellous. There are other hotels in Bellagio, but none so well located.
Breakfast was the best of all the hotels we stayed in on our trip; we chose to eat dinner elsewhere as there is so much choice in Bellagio.
Next door to the Hotel du Lac is a lovely coffee/cake-shop - perfect for glasses of Prosecco and people-watching. Top Tip: Sit outside, but make sure you have a look inside!

Room Tip: Make sure you get a Lake View room - its incomparable! If taking a car, pre-book your hotel parking

Stayed here for one night in mid September after spending three nights across the lake in Varenna. Hotel seemed clean and well kept. Room and washroom were reasonably spacious and well put together. Our room unfortunately looked out onto a laneway and dining area of the adjacent building - so no view. The few available lake views at the front of the hotel are brighter and far superior.

The complementary breakfast was excellent. Didn’t dine in this hotel due to the large number of great alternatives just minutes away. Spent several hours late in the day on the roof top terrace that offers a great view of the shoreline and lake. We had the terrace all to ourselves for some time until a few other couples came up to watch the sunset.

Location of the hotel is excellent - at the heart of the Bellagio shoreline. One of the ferry terminals is just across the street from the hotel. Overall found the room rate a bit high but quite honestly I’m not sure there are any good yet inexpensive accommodations in Bellagio. Check in and check out was seamless and staff were very friendly. Wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again on our next visit to Bellagio.

Room Tip: Try to get a room at the front of the hotel over looking the lake.

my lasting memory of eating here was the amount of times the waiter thank us for coming.
Must say that the meal was average but the wines selected by the waiter were excellent
but thank you for coming rings in my ears

A great hotel on the waterfront at Bellagio. Would have preferred a lake view room. Had to make do with one overlooking a narrow lane way that goes up the hill with lots of little restaurants & shops. This was quite noisy during the day however, this somehow added to the atmosphere of Bellagio. Lovely breakfasts overlooking the lake & there is a rooftop balcony that looks over Lake Como. Lots of reasonably priced restaurants around about with great food & wine. Bellagio is a must visit whilst in Lake Como we had long leisurely lunches on the waterfront & the views are to die for. Be warned this is a popular venue book early.

Room Tip: Book early for a lake view room

It is a 3 star hotel in the best location you can imagine. The rooms are fine for this level of hotel. The service is very friendly and, as everyone else has said, the location is perfect. All of the shops are right next to the hotel and the waterfront is only a few steps away.

Overall, the hotel was everything I had hoped. I would definitely stay there again.
