Reviewed 8 August 2014

Wonderful location on the lake. We found everyone at the hotel to be friendly and helpful. Our room on the 4th floor had a superb view of the lake and was well worth paying extra. The breakfast was excellent, a wonderful start to the day. My only disappointment was the restaurant in the evening, the décor was a little plain and uninviting, it could do with a make-over. We chose instead to eat elsewhere in Bellagio where there were plenty of good restaurants and bars to choose from.

Room Tip: A lake view is a must.

Hotel could not be better located, right across from the ferry wharf from Como.
we had room 43, lake view with balcony. The catch with balcony rooms is that the old French doors don't keep out the rain. There is a motorised shutter that does stop the weather, but then there is no lake view - and, on our first night, the shutter got jammed closed. very helpful staff got a tradie in who pushed and pulled and muttered curses in Italian. End result, after a couple of hours the shutter was open, and we could look at the lake lights all night. Some people talk about noise, being by the wharf - that didn't bother us at all.
Breakfast is adequate for Italy, and better than our experience in Venice or Como. we had 2 nights, but adding in trips to towns and villages around the lake we could easily have stayed for 7.

Room Tip: lake view rooms are far preferable - level 4 is best.

Our room had a partial view of the lake when you stepped out on the small balcony and I was glad we did not choose lake front because the restaurant was very lively and I think the noise would have bothered me. This is a small hotel and it exceeded my expectations. I searched high and low for a hotel and was extremely disappointed by the traditional look of all the places. The room though was very clean, the bed was very comfortable and the linens were soft and good quality. The rooftop is cute with nice views. They even have an outdoor shower if you are sunbathing and want to cool off. We did not use the sister hotel's pool because it was raining. The staff was helpful and the ferry is right downstairs. Shopping is right up the steps. This is a great area to walk around during the day. It gets a bit quiet at night and restaurants all close by 10 except for places in hotels. Breakfast included is a nice touch. It was basic but so convenient!

Room Tip: If you want peace and quiet do not book a Lake Front room unless it is on a higher floor.

The Hotel has a great location, right in the center of Bellagio. The view is beautiful.
We booked a room without the lake view and it had a huge bed. The room was big and clean. Bathroom is not so modern but clean as well.
Breakfast is OK, " american style" as they explained.
What bothered me a little was the wifi. It didn't work properly in our room and you had to login every time. Also the keys at the Hotel are very outdated.
The best part was dinner! The chef was so friendly, he came to our table every night and explained the menu etc etc. Delicious risottos and scallops!
Ps: To arrive at the Hotel with a car you have to drive through some narrow streets! Dont be afraid, it's the right way

The hotel is in a great location in the centre of town, lovely atmosphere around the hotel which feels safe. We booked on the day and got a great price. The room was basic but covered our needs. Our room was beside an alley overlooking restaurants which was very noisy at night if the windows were open. We had dinner at the hotel which was really nice, overlooking the lake and mountains. We thought it was expensive but worth it for the experience. Breakfast is somewhat poor, it was included in our deal. The cheese offered is processed wrapped cheese! Not what you would expect from a hotel with a lovely evening restaurant.
The hotel has a roof terrace, nice to relax, take in the views and have a glass of wine.
The hotel has no parking, parking is available around Bellagio but you need a parking ticket between 8am -8pm which can be expensive. There is free parking around the back of the small town but this is generally busy, we did find a space so keep looking.

I love this hotel, and will definitely be returning. The location is perfect, with a stunning view over Lake Como, and the hotel feels both classy and friendly. The staff are very welcoming and helpful, and I did not need to worry about not being able to speak Italian. The restaurant on the terrace is my favourite restaurant anywhere - with magnificent food and wonderful service. In addition, the roof terrace is the perfect place for peaceful reading.
