“Very noisy - take earplugs!”
Reviewed 25 July 2011

We paid extra for lake-view room, but had not appreciated that we would suffer from loud disco music every night from the hotel restaurant across the road until midnight or later. Early morning starts with more noise from car-ferries 100 metres away. Take earplugs or book room at back of hotel. Hotel decor is very basic - tiles missing in bathroom, no washbasin plug, stair carpet rods undone (dangerous). Food was OK, but breakfast choices disappointing and queues for coffee machine. Staff friendly, and nice swimming pool & garden to rear of hotel. Only the delightful ambiance of Bellagio made up for this rather below average 3 star hotel of faded elegance.

Room Tip: Front rooms v. noisy - take earplugs!

I chose the Hotel Splendid for my first trip to Bellagio, Italy. It was like a pension on the 4th floor with windows that opend up to the Lake and all the wonderful boating activities....not a jet ski to be seen!
The staff at the hotel was so helpful when I asked questions before my arrival. Need a florist, they sent the names. Elevator, air, small and very clean. Wonderful breakfast. It was all about the location. You just walked out the door and everything was at your feet. Cafes,shopping, people watching, buses, trolley and the breathtaking view.

Don't hesitate to put this wonderful piece of heaven on your travel list...at the top.

Last July, around now actually, me, my sister, her husband, her two sons and my daughter all got the plane from Dublin to Milan. There was a terrible landslide and we had to take a coach through the awful road between Como and Bellagio. The driver was a complete nutter. But then we arrived at this stunning hotel with live music in a bar to the left of me and a grand reception through the door to my right. The locals were friendly, the rooms were nice, the hotel employees were very obliging and helpful and the facilities were amazing. We went half-board and whether it was spaghetti and tomato ketchup or risotto or fried cheese sandwich, the hotel food never failed. We went on a package holiday with Crystal, and we went on all the trips- Lugano on the first friday, Villa Balbellino on Sunday, St. Moritz and the Bernina Express on Monday, Milan on Tuesday, a Villa boat tour on Wednesday, Lake Orta and Stresa on Thursday, Bergamo on the second friday and even a cookery lesson from a chef in Varenna on our last day!!! Definitely worth going back to and the Lugano, St. Moritz, Milan and Bergamo trips were definitely worth it!!!

Room Tip: Although only the front rooms have balconies, it is more noisy because there are usually matches on...

We stayed in one of the newly renovated rooms at front of the hotel. Fabulous comfort, seriously fabulous view. We took half board option - restaurant food was great on the nights the chef was working. When he/she wasn't on duty, food was good but you could tell the difference - so lunch on chef's night off would have been better choice. We were very late in so missed dinner that night - staff offered us a replacement meal unsolicited. Reception staff were also helpful re organising our excursions and especially when return taxi from venue in hills behind Bellagio fell through ... I called the hotel, explained situation and replacement taxi was dispatched immediately.

A bathroom you couldn't stand up in. only 1 towel and still after 2 requests and 1 hour no extra towel so had to share with my husband. Safe instructions that did not match the safe in the room. Broken soap dish holder in bath with jagged plastic bits sticking out. Plus you could only sit and had to hunch over to get in the bath. This room was on the top floor in the roof area and should only have been used as a storage area. We had to move the bed so we could get out one side without hitting our head.
We were part of a tour group and the other rooms on the lower floor that people got were fine. No, the hotel was not full there were rooms next door to our friends.
The corridor leading to the rooms on the top floor had steel supporting poles running from the roof a third of the way down the wall so if you did not walk close to the wall you would hit your head. I am sure this top floor would not be allowed to operate in Australia

Room Tip: refuse any room on the top floor

Could not fault hotel for food (too much ) Italian style,clean towels every day,staff very helpful,bar staff friendly.One or two things needed renewing and enlarging ie Shower cubicle. But the view from the windows overlooking the lake were fantastic and watching the car ferry come in was so interesting.Noisy in the day but quiet at night.

Room Tip: Must have lake view

We flew into Milan to begin our group tour of Italy and were taken to this hotel on Lake Como.
It was a wonderful wonderful place; impeccably clean room with comfortable beds, pleasant staff and the best part of all, a little balcony overlooking Lake Como.
There was a small restaurant next door to the hotel where we indulged with daily Cappuccinos, pastries and the best pizza!!
Will return in future.
