The value for this hotel is just alright considering everything.
We opted to stay outside of the central part of Bellagio owing to the fact that we had a car.
We were in lakefront double room #5. The best part of it were of the views of the mountains and the lake, absolutely spectacular. The room itself is quite small and there was not an ounce of extra space not even to place/open suitcase (you have to place it on the bed to open and retrieve items). Visualize nightstand-double bed-nightstand only (no more) for the width and length of bed plus about 2 feet max at the end of the bed before the door of the bathroom/wall. Redeeming was the balcony to open it up some with 2 patio chairs and the VIEW, otherwise it would have been extremely small and closety. Like all thing in Italy there are always quirks. The ever present low level lighting that you always experience in hotel rooms of this caliper. The bathroom was modern however the toilet was the most uncomfortable either one of us had ever experienced (not standard issue and the rim of the bowl seat was about 2" so you can imagine sitting on a thin, narrow hard plank. I don't know how anyone would ever be able to use the bidet (not that we do) as the left side of it was bump up against the wall just like the toilet's right side - so the visual for this facing the plumbing , the left side bidet against the wall about 1-1/2 foot between that and the toilet - toilet -then the right side of the toilet is against the wall, the bathroom is about 4 feet wide in total (if that). In other words, don't expect anything that would be comfortable for anyone taller that about 5'8" (be slim and fit, too) and you should be OK. The breakfast was bad. We arrived one morning and it appeared that the coffee in the urn was cold and they were attempting to re-heat it up by plugging it back in. Selections of items was miserably bad. The parking lot is small and parking could be an issue if you return at dinner time after being out as it is shared with the restaurant. We never moves it at night past 6-ish. To go into town one should drive as the alternatives are to walk through the gardens by paying an admission. The gates of the garden close at 6 or 630 so don't stay in town too long -or walk by the side of the curvy, narrow road that has no sidewalk and risk being taken out by an Italian driver that doesn't see you in time who is driving way too fast.
