I pretty much agree with everything said by the review before this, 'putting the Bella in Bellagio' We are from the UK and have just returned from a week here. We decided to stay at the Belvedere as a treat after a difficult year with illness and the hotel surpassed our expectations; it's not cheap but boy was it worth it. You must have a lake view or you'll regret it, the view is stunning. Lake Como is beautiful and this hotel was the icing on the cake for us.
For some reason I hadn't quite clicked that the hotel wasn't actually in Bellagio and was a little disappointed initially (for about 5 mins!!) but soon realised it was a bonus as you have an amazing view and you also have peace and quiet with the birds singing in the morning, and efficient and professional staff making your stay a delight. It is only 5 min walk into Bellagio. Bellagio is the place to stay on the lake and you can see why as it's very pretty, but gets very busy during the day.
The staff at the hotel were all great, all very professional and very helpful - a particular mention for Elise who was so cheerful and friendly every night in the dining room. Housekeeping kept the rooms and the hotel simply spotless.
We had the half board menu for supper and the food was good. The Italians do their classic dishes like no one else can so we tended to choose dishes along those lines and thought a pasta dish in the main course section would have been good. On the whole there were 4 choices for each course. Breakfast was buffet style and there was so much choice, it was very good.
Our room (501) was spacious and the walls were so thick that it meant we stayed very cool in the incredible heat that they were experiencing (plus there was aircon) and also we didn't hear our neighbours. It was just something else to wake up and look out of your room at that view every day. We had table and chairs and sunbeds outside our room which was really nice.
Overall, a great area to visit and the best place to stay! A lovely hotel for couples, you can't get much more romantic than here.
