“Wonderful Little Hotel and Restaurant”
Reviewed 20 June 2011

We stayed 4 nights at the Hotel Silvio. I had made arrangements very early and got a newly renovated suite with balcony with a wonderful lake view. Everything was fresh and clean. The hotel lobby was cozy, and the staff was so gracious. We loved being able to walk through the estate gardens just down the hill into town. It was 3 Euro each per day and worth every penny. The gardens were so well tended, and we saw a different part of them each day. Back to the hotel, we wanted ice for our room when we checked in, and the lady at the front desk got it for us although the bar was not yet opened. We had heard from friends how good the restaurant was and decided to try it our first night there. It was so good that we ate there every night, something that is really unusual for us. And the bonus is that if you eat at least 3 meals with them, you get a 10% discount off the restaurant bill! The breakfast was included in the room price and was excellent every morning that we were there. If I am ever in Bellagio/Lake Como again, I wouldn't stay any other place. This was perfect for us.

Room Tip: Ask for a suite with a balcony facing the lake

Albergo Resaurante Silvio Overlooks the western arm of Lake Como from the "suburb" of Loppia in Bellagio. The views from the hotel are sublime, and our room (exacatly as boooked online and promised) had the best of them. The hotel is at the southern end of the gardens of the Villa Melzi rather than in the Bellagio town centre, but the 10 minute easy walk is a delight, especially if you take the route through the villa gardens along the lake edge as part of your day ticket for these. Silvio is, in a way, a restaurant with some rooms, but this does not do justice to the quality of the accommodation: we had a large luxurious bathroom, a balcony, comfortable lounge chairs and ample space in our "suite" (room 3). The location of the bed in the middle of the room is utterly logical when you consider the view afforded.

The restaurant is good and moderately priced by Bellagio standards, with the interesting and substantial wine list a particular bargain. The specialty is the local lake fish, mostly delicate white flesh but also pike, all of which are done the local ways. Special mention for the wait staff is appropriate: they were great.

Special mention also for Elena at reception for her local knowledge and assistance. Wifi access cost a few € extra, it would be great if it was built into the room rate

Albergo Silvio is a beautiful spot: classic European chic style and a magnificent location. We'd be back in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Ask for room 3 or a similar view

All communications during reservation process timely and helpful. Elena and Silvia were very pleasant and genuinely helpful with all questions about the area, hotel, restaurant. Great suggestions for the time we had. Our balcony lake view room contributed to an epic trip. We had dinner on balcony twice as there was no better location. The area is fantastic and the hotel added to the whole package for us.

Room Tip: Reserve the superior lakeview double. #12, a gem.

Initially staying only one night at Silvio's. We had a loft room off a spacious lounge area. Views of the snow capped mountains from our window. We had selected Silvios after reading restaurant reviews of this hotel. The food was excellent with variety and quality. Normally we would not select to eat where we stay, I am glad we did. The staff and owner of the hotel were very helpful and pleasant at all times. They assisted with other bookings and language issues we had experienced. We departed for Verona only to return a day later for another three nights. Our experience at this hotel was so enjoyable we just had to spend more time here. On our return a balcony suite was made available for us, with views across Lake Como. In our six weeks in Europe we stayed at other good hotels, none were the complete service package we experienced here.

We loved Hotel Silvio so much we returned - on the same trip!

My husband and I did a road trip of Northern Italy and Hotel Silvio in Bellagio was our hotel of choice when visiting Lake Como. The hotel is small and is run very professionally. The room was a superior double so we could have a balcony with a view of the lake (which were stunning) and such good value! The room was a little small but the view (and balcony) more than made up for that. Location: Bellagio is beautiful and where its at. The hotel is a 15 min walk to the restaurants and ferry port but the walk is through gorgeous landscaped gardens... (euro12 for 3 day pass) a pleasure to walk every day. If you prefer, the hotel have a car that they shuttle people to and from the 'centre' - a great (and free) service.

The hotel restaurant is where a lot of Italians come especially to eat (you must pre-book a table, its that popular) the food is exceptional and again GREAT VALUE with the service and atmosphere of an expensive restaurant. Wine on the cheap end of the wine list is cheap and delicious! (euro 13 for a delicious white wine)

Wish we didn't have to leave to continue on our road trip but we did.... and returned one week later on our way home. As a treat, we booked a suite and got the same view as a superior double except you get two balconies and a very spacious bathroom and bedroom. Our suite was room no. 5 - only negative is that we had a tree obscuring our view (a little) so get a suite on the other side (room #3).

Cannot recommend enough and wouldn't stay anywhere else in Bellagio (there are luxury hotels in Belagio centre that I'm sure are very expensive but give you the same view!). I cannot wait to go back!

Room Tip: Superior Double room # 15 has a huge balcony

We looked through every hotel website in Bellagio and for our early season trip found many of them to be shut, too expensive or just not answering the phone. Then we found Hotel Silvio - rang them up and reserved. We set off from home not really having any idea where we would be staying but just knew that it was roughly where we wanted to be and was at the right price. On arriving outside we thought "Ok things are looking good" - parked the car and checked in... our room was Room 5 with dual aspect & spacious balcony, a good size room with the bed facing a superb view of the lake (not sure how much the tree once in leaf will obscure the view but not a lot I think) TV - large shower and plenty of space in the shower room, good lighting - obviously the hotel has undergone a lot of refurbishment - it is modern, clean and user friendly - the only down points I could find are that the sofa does not face the TV ( but then the view is all you need to watch) and there is a good size wardrobe but no place to put other stuff - we just used our suitcase on the stand provided - not a hardship.
The restaurant offers great food - try the Perch & Rice dish - we had it twice! With very resonable prices for the quality of the food. The staff are all helpful and friendly but not over the top.
The hotel is situated at the top of the hill along a busy road but then so is everywhere else ...but they offer a free shuttle service to take you into town for the boats etc or you can get a pass to walk through the gardens of Villa Meltzi - unfortunately we found out about this too late. We were on a short break with our dog - she too was made welcome - there is a great grassy walking track right by the hotel which was a relief - if we had been down in the town it would have been hard to find a spot of grass for the old girl...
All in all I highly recommend this hotel & restaurant for anyone travelling to Bellagio

Room Tip: be sure to book a table for dinner
