We chose this Hotel via online reviews for our trip to lake Como. We initially wanted to stay right on the waterfront in the Bellagio township but everything within our price range was booked out. We drove from Venice to Bellagio and survived the extremely narrow roads and opposite direction traffic to arrive mid afternoon. We later discovered it would have been better to catch the car ferry from Cadenabbia on the other side of Lake Como directly opposite Bellagio. The ferry trip is only 10 minutes and costs only around 11 Euro.
The Hotel itself is located just above the township within a 5 minute easy walk and the lake view rooms look across the lake towards to east. The views are breathtaking!
The hotel is very comfortable offering free WiFi internet and free transfer to Bellagio to catch a ferry service. Hotel parking is available and free.
We had the breakfast and dinner package and were delighted with the high standard of food on offer in the hotel dining room.
The service at this hotel was second to none. The hotel staff are friendly and are more than happy to offer advice and assist in booking tours etc.
I highly recommend staying at the Hotel Belvedere if you are lucky enough to visit this beautiful part of the world.

Room Tip: If you can fit it into your budget, ask for a lake view room with a balcony.

This hotel was great value, booked on expedia, we paid approx $aus250 per night and that included dinner and breakfast. The dinner was not pasta buffet as I had expected but a very good 3 course meal with about 4 choices for each course. It couldn't be faulted. On the first night I mentioned I was vegetarian and from then on I got my own special menu to choose from. The service was impressive, thank you Monica. While the hotel is a 5 min walk above the village, this meant it was in a quieter location, although kids in the pool could be noisy during the day. The room was adequate and the bathroom had a view of the lake from the bath.. Beautiful, we also had the same view from our bed when we left the balcony doors open. This hotel has been the highlight of our stay in Italy so far. I heard an American woman remark to the barman that it was her fav hotel in the world and she had been there 14 times.

We found this hotel when driving past (I was taken by the old Astin MArtin in the driveway) and saw they had a terrace with amazing views for a coffee. So we decided to stop and see take this in.

Complimenting the view are expansive grounds with walking paths.The hotel service was ok, but I am guessing that we had 2 small children with us and wanted to have a coffee on the terrace so we received the level of service one would expect.

The view and serenity was to die for, it was quiet, away from the tourist hordes in bellagio, and the coffee was ok. We had to hunt down staff to serve us and when we did it came over that we were an inconvenience to their day. Shame really, as we were considering staying here, but would reconsider based on the service we received.

We spent the entire night exclaiming, "I can't believe this view!" The hotel sits on a small hill and has an amazing view of Lake Como. It was drop dead gorgeous. Complimenting the view are expansive grounds with walking paths and a swimming pool/jacuzzi with plenty of seating and lake views. We have been disappointed with swimming pools on recent travels, but not so with this hotel. The jacuzzi has a disappearing edge view of the lake and a bench seat to make it quite the comfortable experience to relax and absorb the surroundings. It was truly the icing on the cake to end our Italian vacation with a bit of relaxation and quiet beauty.

The hotel service was good. They checked us in promptly, answered questions about where to eat, and brought us towels as soon as we walked into the pool area. Literally, we had just asked ourselves, "where do we get towels?" when someone walked up to us with a stack of pools and explained the pool/jacuzzi rules to us in relation to children. (They bent the rules to allow the children in the jacuzzi since the pool was freezing with it being the end of the season -- very nice and well appreciated by my munchkins!)

Our room had a view, as requested, and we enjoyed being able to sleep with the window wide open. We were traveling with our 3 children (aged 13, 11, and 8) as well as our labradoodle dog. We had asked for rooms near each other, and the hotel provided a 2 bedroom suite with a shared bathroom -- my husband and I got the view of the lake, while the kids had a street view. it was a perfect solution for us. The kids appreciated that the beds were made as three singles as opposed to a double and a single. There was definitely less bickering.

The interior of the rooms was more in line with a 3 star hotel and didn't seem to match the beautiful grounds and buildings. (I figure the star rating is an average of a 5 star exterior and a 3 star interior, but perhaps other rooms are more updated.) The furniture was outdated, and the bathroom was tiny and not well maintained. Only one person could be in the bathroom at a time -- you couldn't even squeeze past another person, not that there would be anywhere for you to stand once you did squeeze past. The toilet was shoved into a corner behind the door. The open door touched the toilet seat, so you needed the door completely closed to have enough room to use the toilet. The shower was a small square with retractable doors. By the end of the shower, several inches of water were standing in the basin. My children took showers after each other, and we were quite worried that the bathroom would flood from the standing water. The bed looked comfortable, but both my husband and I woke up with back aches. These aches could have been compounded by the drive from Florence.

Even with the basic rooms, we would return to this hotel in a heartbeat. We loved the view, grounds, pool, and proximity to town. Town was an easy 5-10 minute walk from the hotel. I had been worried when other reviews mentioned that it was an "uphill walk" but it is really a walk that anyone can do. The stairs in town are more strenuous.

Room Tip: Definitely ask for a lake view.

Nice hotel in a wonderful location. Very helpful and gracious staff. The scenic views of the Lecco side of the lake were terrific from our corner suite on the fouth floor of the main building. Had lunch on the terrace upon arrival; never ate anything but breakfast there again. There are too many choices down the hill in town. This was the most expensive room we had during our two week stay in Italy. $515/night.

Room Tip: We had room #314.

By far the biggest advantage to this hotel is its location. Views from the balcony are absolutely amazing and overlook the quieter Lecco side of Lake Como. Our room was in a separate building a short walk from the main lobby/building which gave us an extra sense of seclusion. The room itself was clean and extremely comfortable although somewhat basic. The hotel is a short walk from town so the neighborhood is quiet at night. Unfortunately there was a construction project about 2 blocks from the hotel which made things a little noisy during the day but obviously this is not the hotel's fault.

Very friendly and helpful staff for arranging tours or for navigating around the Lake Como region. Breakfast buffet each morning was well stocked with excellent choices.

Tip: Trains to Milan leave every 2 hours from the Varenna train station a short boat ride from Bellagio. Very convenient.

Nice hotel in nice location- Just far enough from town to be quite, but close enough that it was a 5 minute walk to town. The rooms were just fine, the pool and lounging areas adequate but the best part of this hotel was the staff. They were to a person very friendly and very helpful. The front desk was flawless! Picked two excellent dinner choices, gave us great tips about where to go and what to see. We would stay here again anytime. Breakfast buffet was what you would expect from a hotel of this quality, first rate.
