“Stunning location, some reservations”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

We felt very fortunate to be shown to our lovely room with a balcony overlooking beautiful lake Como. Marta who checked us in was welcoming and efficient and the hotel is in an idyllic spot. Breakfast every morning was very good, particularly with the inclusion of muesli! The room was clean and well-equipped, even containing a small fridge, but the mattress was hard and cheap. We have a couple of reservations though. The first is that one of the best things about the hotel is its lake views. Unfortunately the restaurant terrace has the same position so that noise and cigarette smoke can be an issue. The French doors are very well sound-proofed, but then you sacrifice the views you're paying for. Secondly the hotel is not in the most convenient position for those who spend a lot of time in the town centre or catching many ferries. The walk to the town and ferries is steep and up many steps, those with mobility problems would have a tough time. Lastly parking is not ideal. We were lucky to bag a spot right outside the hotel which we then just left the car in, but otherwise parking is quite a distance away.

Room Tip: If noise from restaurant might bother you, ask for a room without a lake view, the lane has very lit...

Stunning views, beautiful location, great price... However, there's nothing quite like arriving at a hotel to be met by scowls and sour expressions, especially when you've travelled literally half way around the world. No lift, that's fine, I'll carry my wife and baby's stuff upstairs, I'm used to that. I'm not used to trying to get a baby through a spring loaded door in a pushchair while the proprieter observes me from his seat 2 metres away... I was doubly impressed when a couple of Italian nationals rocked up and he carried their bags upstairs for them.
Breakfast was dreadful that's all there is to say about that.
In short a beautiful hotel in a beautiful spot wholly spoiled by people who clearly didn't enjoy running it, or interacting with visitors. I would be the first person back following a change of management.

This is a beautiful hotel on the shores of Lake Como. The rooms themselves were beautiful and had an authentic old italian feel with beautiful large armoires and dressers. Marta was warm and accommodating when we discovered our rooms were not exactly what we had expected from booking.com website as only one room had a full view of the lake while the other was a partial view.The restaurant on site had a gorgeous view of the lake however and the food was delicious. Breakfast the next morning was plentiful with lots of choices and again with the stunning views of Lake Como. It was a very short pleasant walk to the center of Bellagio and the value of the hotel being just a short walk away was so worth it. The decor was lovely, the beds comfortable and the view out our window was priceless. Thank you Marta for your excellent service!

We've stayed several times at La Pergola. Our tastes include: the Beauty of Nature, Authenticity, Simplicity, Serenity & Wellness. La pergola is a 15' hike from the village and well worth it. We enjoy to eat well and the short walk is a pleasure after dinner or any time of day. It's stunning actually with those ancient steps. And the possibility to swim directly from the hotel (away from ferry boats) is a plus. The rooms are simple and the VIEWS spectacular.

Hope this review is helpful. And we would love to hear from you when you find simple jems! We love it because our Chalet in Wengen, Switzerland is such a place. Wengen is similar to Bellagio in that it dates back to the Belle Époque, also very well preserved. Let us know if you'd like info on Wengen or our chalet (available on occassion for rent. We screen our renters carefully) dating back to 1885, with unobstructed views, sunny southern exposure, private gardens, balcony, winter gardens & spectacular views. If you like La pergola, be sure to plan a skiing or hiking vacation in Wengen. We also loved Cinque Terra, especially staying in Monterosso al Mare.

We have just returned from an eight-night stay in the heart of Bellagio. On our second day whilst out exploring we came across La Pergola, a beautiful little hotel right on the edge of the lake. Such a beautiful location that we almost talked ourselves into returning to Bellagio later in the year and staying there. We wont be! We went through to the terrace just to sit and admire the view and have a coffee, the owner was extremely unfriendly, not a single word of greeting to us, and very hostile stares, and we felt really uncomfortable. However, we thought maybe she was just having a bad day, so decided to return a couple of days later to give it another try. Oh dear, we arrived about 10.30 and ordered our coffee and asked if we could have croissants. No, there aren't any! My husband then ordered a pannini, which very grudgingly arrived about 30 minutes later, (after reminding the pleasant little waitress that we were still waiting), by which time our coffee was cold. I have never actually come across such an unwelcoming place, everywhere else in Bellagio was the total opposite and we had a wonderful stay there.

Gorgeous lakeside location, go to sleep to the lapping of the waves! Oh and a wee bit of restaurant noise! Bellagio itself is a "few step-es" away (according to the very helpful young waitress) - make that 180 steps! We stayed 5 nights and loved it - very clean, spacious room, and breakfast on the terrace was a treat. To get there we hired a taxi which was an hour's trip with the great Claudio who gave us a commentary - so much easier than getting a bus from Linate, a train from Milan, a ferry from Varenna!

Reviewed 20 July 2013

I was worried about this hotel after the horrible reviews about the service; I was pleasantly surprised. The people who run the hotel are not particularly friendly, but they were fine. The hotel is clean and the rooms are bigger than many in Europe. The price was excellent. Breakfast was minimal but enough.

The location is on the other side of town from the ferry landing, so it's quiet and away from the main drag. The negative of this is you must walk up and down a big hill every time you want to go into town - if you have problems with your knees or hips, it would be better to stay at one of the hotels closer to the ferry landing.

Room Tip: The lake view rooms are worth the extra money
