I was travelling through Italy for three weeks with my parents aged 69/70 and Bellagio was our last stop on the trip. We did not want to spend a lot on the hotel, as we knew we would be out of the lake everyday. We had read the bad reviews and were prepared for the worst when arriving at Albergo Europa. I have to say, it was pretty bad, but we grinned and bared it. A triple room cost us Euro 105 a night, as opposed to our only other option: Hotel Splendide at Euro200 - a significant difference over three nights. Here are the facts:
Positive: very well located and a 5min walk to the ferry. Parking for those who need it. Room was clean and light.
Negative: Beds were uncomfortable, sheets were thread bare. THere was no duve, but hand crocheted blankets which we could only guess at were never drycleaned. The bath mat was pink and dirty and the towels were old and grey. The worst part was the bath. It was the weirdest thing I had ever seen. Like a tiny little bath you had to sit in with your knees around your ears. It was stained and not clean from manyy years use. No shower curtain and so the floor was wet. I tried to stand up to shower but as the base of it was designed for sitting it was hard, and dangerous. It was, I have to say, worse than camping.
Lake Como and Belllagio are a beautiful place, but this is not the place to stay. Splurge on a nice hotel. We will next time.
