This was the friendliest and most efficient hotel we have ever been in. Stayed for a week for our daughter's wedding and it was all wonderful. The staff could not have been more helpful or friendly. This added to what was already going to be a memorable occasion for us.

My husband & I stayed at the Hotel Florence for 4 nights in September and thought it was wonderful. The staff was very accommodating. We had a side view room with no balcony but were very happy with the room and still had a beautiful view of the lake and the mountains. The only drawback was the “shower” which was really just a handheld showerhead in a very narrow tub. Other than that we loved our stay at the Hotel Florence and totally recommend the hotel. As for Bellagio and the rest of Lake Como, it was our favorite part of a 2 week vacation that included Portofino, Cinque Terre, Siena & Rome.

We stayed 3 wonderful nights at the Hotel Florence. It is a charming, family run hotel right on the banks of Lake Como with magnificent view across the lake. We booked the last room in the hotel and so for the first two nights did not have a view of the lake. Our room was still lovely, roomy and decorated with antiques with views of the garden and a large bathroom. Our last night we moved to a room with beautiful views of the lake and doors opening onto a terrace. Across a very tiny road is the hotels terrace restaurant. We had many delicious relaxing meals, snacks and drinks here under the wisteria covered pergola. Thoroughly recommend a mojito and the caprese salad. Breakfast was very good and great to have a hot breakfast on offer. The staff were helpful and friendly. Free internet was available in the lobby. This hotel was excellent value. Booking can be a little difficult as emails are not always answered. We ended up phoning. Bellagio is the most beautiful town and the people welcoming. We caught the ferry up from Como which was a great scenic way to see the lake. On leaving we caught the train to Milan from Vareena which only took about 45 minutes. Walking around the tiny stone streets is an absolute pleasure as are the walks around the town along the lake. Villa Melzi and its gardens are worth visiting as is taking a private boat ride to Villa Del Balbianello. The shopping is surprisingly good and actually turned out to be better value and so much easier than Milan. Silk is locally made so ties, scarfs etc are very reasonably priced. We had some great meals at the local restaurants. Absolutely loved every minute!

Old hotel that, depending on your point of view, is either charming or badly in need of an upgrade. Great location right on water front directly across from boat service. Front side rooms have a spectacular view of Lake Como. No wireless internet, decent breakfast. Our room was by the elevator so we could hear the elevator and hall conversations at all hours. We would recommend requesting a room away from the elevators. The most disturbing problem was the offensive, septic sewer smell coming from the bathroom. At the front desk, we were told this is problem common to all Bellagio hotels - we do not know if that is true.

Spent 2 nights in the hotel Florence and Bellagio. We stayed in a room which I believe was called corner room with lake views and cost us 200 euros / night.
The good - the rooms are really beautiful and romantic. The location is also ideal, on the waterfront and near the ferry stops.
The (less) good - we knew about this before booking from other reviews but I did think that the lack of any sort of proper shower was rather pathetic. You had to make do with a feeble handheld shower thing. Considering size of bathroom and cost of room I really don't see why no proper shower has been installed.
That being said - taking all into account would stay at the Florence again.
We also ate one night in the restaurant - lovely location, good food, quite high prices (10% off if you are staying in the hotel) slow service so not for those in a rush.

We were looking forward to our five day stay at the Hotel Florence. We had a corner room overlooking Lago Como and Villa Serbelloni. Bathroom was dark and very poorly lighted. Tub, which included the shower, was so narrow it was almost dangerous to use. Staff was indifferent, never warm or welcoming. Breakfast never changed. No additions or variety. It became boring day after day. Would not stay here again.
