When we arrived at Hotel Florence in the early evening, we were very tired from a long journey by car from Cortina d"Ampezzo. However, the tiredness left us as soon as we walked through the front door and were greeted enthusiastically by the owner, Timothy. Following a big hello, he grabbed our bags with both hands and took us to our rooms, refusing any sort of tip, telling us that "carrying our bags was all part of the service". From there, it just kept getting better.
Our room was 1, and our friends' room was 3, with both rooms sharing a spacious terrace looking out at Lake Como, with a table and chairs for each couple. Inside, the bedrooms were colourful and stylish, as were the bathrooms. Yes, we knew we had made the right choice in booking in at the Hotel Florence. Excellent buffet breakfasts provided us, with drinks being served by the delightful Giorgia, was a great start to every day. Inside the hotel, there are numerous lounge areas, both large and small, and all furnished with great flair. Service from Timothy, Christian and other members of staff was always friendly and helpful - a great team. The hotel also has a lakeside restaurant across from main hotel. As we came to expect, the food and service was excellent.
What more can I say? Perhaps a few words about Bellagio itself. A handsome town bordered by the lake on one side and the hilltops behind - beautiful and atmospheric, with some high quality shops and restaurants. From Bellagio, you can hop on and off ferries that take you to other lovely towns and villages on Lake Como. All very easy and most enjoyable. My sense is that it is better not to have a car, as parking is at a premium and driving a bit difficult for we tourists who don't know the area well enough to drive with ease.
