My wife and I stayed for a week at the end of May at the Hotel Belvedere in Bellagio, Lake Como. On arrival we were quickly checked into our room which was in a great location (room 501) which had an outdoor patio area which we preferred to having a balcony room. This allowed us to lay out on the sun lounger on the grass in front of our room and move around freely and still have a great view looking across the lakes and mountains, it really was a stunning view!
Our room was fine and maintained well and kept very clean by the staff throughout the week.
Breakfast was good, plenty of options, buffet style, cooked, lots of fruit, cereals, pastries, juices etc.
With regards the evening meals, I must admit I'm a bit fussy and awkward with what I eat so we ate in the restaurant 4 nights and ate out 3 nights just purely down to there not being anything I fancied on the menu the nights we ate out. That's not to say the food wasn't of good quality because every night we did eat there it was good quality. The service from the staff was also very well organised and ran like clockwork and again the room, cutlery, and surroundings was spotless.
I always require access to a gym and Wifi when I am away. The gym was just about adequate, it had two bikes, one treadmill and a weight machine but no free weights. Luckily hardly anyone else used the room so I was able to get on with what I wanted to do. If a cross trainer and some free weights were added that would make it better but again it was kept very clean throughout our stay. The wifi on the first day was very poor, it hardly worked to start with, the staff tried a few things but it was poor. The next few days it was good then again on the last day the signal seemed to drop out frequently so maybe they need to look at that.
There was always someone readily available on reception if you needed to ask anything and they were also always very pleasant which was nice and on the day we checked out we were given some free bottles of water for our journey which was a nice touch (also had a free refreshing juice drink on arrival I forgot to mention).
The hotel was situated just a 5 minute walk from the town centre and the ferry ports. This meant it was in a nice quiet setting just far enough away to avoid any noise but close enough to walk to the centre easily enough. Also we found a small alleyway by the side of the hotel which went all the way down to the waters edge and we sat on a bench next to La Pergola restaurant/hotel which was lovely (very tranquil, no noise, just the sound of the water lapping up against the wall, the birds singing and the sun shining nice and warm down on us).
Overall we were very happy with our stay at the Hotel Belvedere, especially for a three star hotel, I think their standards are high and we would recommend it.
