Panicked like mad once we'd booked the Excelsior on Expedia as others spoke of bed bugs etc! It was lovely! We got a lake room, no 24 and the huge french doors swung open to reveal the lake and mountains. It's a great hotel. The breakfast was basic but included in the cheap price (100 euros a night I think we paid) but we got hot drinks,juice, yoghurt, dried fruit, fresh fruit, cereal, bread rolls and croissants - more than enough for us thank you! The bathroom was a bit basic, no shower curtain or anywhere to hang the actual shower, but really hot powerful water supply so nothing to grumble about really for the price.
The location is spot on, you couldn't ask for better. The swimming pool is a hidden treat - you get to it on the 1st floor and its set in a pretty private garden with railings. Really nice place to sunbathe away from the town.
We took someone elses review advice and went to the Metropole for the lakeside meal, lunch or dinner is fab... and the Florence Bar does excellent coffees, panninis or champagne!! We also went to Il Baschia up the cobbles towards the hill which has a grape vine growing all over the outside, and the meal was just wonderful and really reasonable.
The most spectacular hotel in Bellagio is the Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni. All the others can't compare but are very good as its such a classy resort.
We took a boat trip down to Como itself to have a nose around, but it isnt a patch on Bellagio - I can see why they call it the Jewel of Como.
