“Great Hotel!”
Reviewed 25 May 2013

Hotel Florence is in a great location on the waterfront close to the ferries. Our room was on the back side of the hotel, but very nice with a large bathroom. Lots of church bells ringing. The breakfast was very good. The front desk can arrange tours of Bellagio and other areas. Definitely recommend staying at this hotel.

a gem of a hotel. right on the lakefront, a few steps from the ferry launch. it's got the 'authentic old world' charm without the kind of drabness and mustiness that too often accompanies such descriptions. Spotlessly clean and stately in a casual way. we booked four nights.. the first in tthe only available double room at the rate we wanted, and the remaining three in a preferred lake view room with balcony. when we were taken to our room after check-in, we were pleased with the room, but it was smallish and, upon enquiry, learned a suite with a sitting room was available for the whole four nights. we asked to see it; it was 40 euro more per night, and we jumped at the chance when we saw the room --- two balconies with doors opening on to lake views, plus a wide tall windw opening for a side view. scenically, Bellagio is beautiful, but overall the town was too touristy for us. but what made our stay really worthwhile was staying at hotel Florence --- we had elegant accommodation and a priceless view of beautiful Lake Como and would gladly have relaxed at hotel Florence for a few more days!

Room Tip: go for a lake view room with balcony....the extra dollars are worth it.

Family owned for many years, this hotel is just beautiful. Each room is different (we stayed in 3 as we booked very late and it was a busy time), and each room had its own special charm. Many colours are used but they make it work to perfection. This was my favourite hotel in Italy, and we travelled Italy for one month. We stayed here for 7 nights, and we really did some relaxing as well as sightseeing. The rooms were very homely especially when a big storm came over Lake Como one night. The two young brothers who are in the family who own the hotel were super friendly and willing to have a chat. They were open to giving advice on the best things to do around the place and explained the interesting history of the hotel. Bellagio is a wonderful town and we enjoyed every minute. Thank you Hotel Florence for helping to make our honeymoon so good! Leanne and Mark, Australia

Room Tip: The corner suites with lake views are spacious and very nice. A smaller room we had later in the wee...

We stayed at the Hotel Florence during a whirlwind 2 week vacation through Italy. Our only regret about Bellagio is that we only could stay for one night!
The hotel is absolutely beautiful and is located directly on Lake Como and only steps from the ferry dock. The little hamlet of Bellagio is not very big and you can easily tour all of it by foot from the hotel.
Front desk staff was exceptionally friendly, helpful, and spoke excellent English. The rooms were very clean and spacious, with four-post beds in most of them. There is an elevator to reach the upper floors.
Breakfast was served in a beautiful dining room and included in the room rate.
Special Note: If you are coming from Milan to visit Bellagio, consider taking an inexpensive train from Milano Centrale Station (they run hourly) to Verenna. Then walk from the Verenna station down the hill (there are signs pointing the way) to the ferry dock on the lake. From there take a ferry 10 minutes to Bellagio. The whole trip can be done in 2.5 hours and costs less than $20USD per person.

We stayed here for 4 nights and had a fantastic corner room on the first floor with 2 balconies that had fabulous views across the lake and the town. It was difficult to tear ourselves away from relaxing with a book and watching the world go by!

We often go to bed relatively early and were slightly concerned that we would find the hotel noisy at night given that we wanted a lake view which meant being directly on the lakefront with the road and restaurants beneath. We need not have been concerned it was fine - the hotel is located at the end of the lakefront that seems to be the quietist and there didn't seem to much passing by later in the evening.

The hotel is only a couple of minutes walk from the ferry terminals so it was very convenient to cruise up and down the lake to Como, Villa Carlotta etc. Breakfasts at the Hotel was very good and the terrace on the lake is worth considering for a meal - we had lunch there one day. We only used the Hotel restaurant once in the evening, it was OK but nothing special to be honest (and we had found Restaurant Bilacus by the second night!) . Although we didn't require much information the reception staff were very helpful when called upon. We would certainly use the hotel again if we return to Bellagio

Room Tip: Has to be a lake view if possible, we found a front room quiet even though it overlooked the road an...

Quite hotel on lake como. Difficult to get to by car as its on opposite side of town with one way access. Our room looked over the lake and it was breathtaking. Very convenient to ferry boats which is primary mode of transportation. Good breakfast included. The restaurant was closed for the season so did not eat there. Convenient yo shops and other fine eating places

We stayed in the lovely hotel's suite for 1 night in September. The room was large, tastefully decorated and with spacious bathrooms. The two balconies opened onto the vast Lake como. The staff was friendly and eager to help with our lunch reservations at a hotel of our choice. The helpful night desk manager also suggested an important change in our travel plans to Milan. Breakfast spread was nice with warm scrambled eggs.
Definitely a great beginning to our wonderful holiday in Italy.

Room Tip: The suite is definitely worth it if you are travelling with kids but was an indulgence for the two o...
