“Great start to our Italy vacation”
Reviewed 8 October 2011

Good room, good location, good breakfast with a view. We booked a partial view room since no lakefront rooms were available. We were happy with it. The fog horns did not bother us that much, maybe because we were still recovering from jet lag and slept like logs. One morning, however, my husband said there was quite a lot of noise coming from garbage trucks early in the morning. I didn’t notice much diesel smell except on the last day when we opened the windows. Usually we used A/C so the windows were usually closed. Breakfast was great. Loved the self-service coffee machine although it was slow so there was usually a backup.

I recommend eating at Bilacus which is on the pedestrian staircase. If coming from Malpensa, I recommend driving up the left side of the lake and taking the ferry from Cadenabbia. The road is straighter and less narrow (except for a stretch in Colonna).

Stayed for 5 nights celebrating friends' 60th birthdays. The hotel is ideally situated on the lakeside very close to the ferry terminals (which are in no way intrusive). The staff were absolutely excellent, very attentive and went out of their way to meet our needs. Wifi was free throughout hotel. Our room had the most fabulous view across Lake Como. Breakfast, taken on the terrazza with fantastic views across the lake, was excellent including fresh fruit, yoghourt, cereal, eggs bacon and omlette cooked to order and included in the cost of the room. The hotel offers 10% off other meals taken in the restaurant. There is a lovely sundeck with loungers and umbrellas on the upper floor. The bar and restaurant terraces also have great views. I would go back tomorrow!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony overlooking the lake or a room on the first floor with a terrace. If...

Stayed for 3 nights (extended our stay by 1 night because we enjoyed the hotel and Lake Como region so much). Beautiful spacious comfortable room with terrace overlooking the lake; delicious breakfast; very helpful friendly staff who couldn't do enough for us; lots of dining nearby. If you plan a trip to Lake Como, would definitely recommend you stay in Bellagio at this hotel.

Recently stayed 3 nights in this lovely hotel to celebrate a friends 60th birthday. It has the prime spot in Bellagio being right on the lake and our room looked over the street and the lake.
The staff were wonderful and so helpful with giving us directions and advice of how to get to different places. It has a wonderful roof area where we were able to have a celebratory drink overlooking the lake. The room was small but adequate and there was free wifi throughout the hotel. Breakfast was pretty basic. Another nice touch is the 10% discount in the hotel restaurant. All in all I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone coming to Bellagio.
An alternative way to get to Bellagio from MIlan is a train to Verenna (65 minutes) and then a 10 minute ferry to Bellagio. Much quicker and cheaper than via Como.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the lake

We had a very enjoyable stay at the Hotel Metropole Bellagio. It has an excellent location right on the lake just a moment's walk from the ferry terminal. The hotel is in the middle of town and close to lovely cafes and shops. The breakfast room has a great view of the lake and the food for breakfast was acceptable but not outstanding. Just a little more money spent on better coffee and other ingredients would have raised my star rating to five. The only other negative (and really, I'm just being a bit picky) is that our lakeside room did not have wifi. I could catch a signal if I walked into the hallway of the lake front rooms and then return to my room and sit on the floor at the front door. That's not really a prime place to spend time writing emails! But coffee and wifi aside, this hotel has excellent staff and is a great base for exploring Lake Como.

We stayed at the Hotel Metropole for 3 nights and loved it! The staff were all fantastic. Reception helped us find free parking for our entire stay and the bar staff went above and beyond feeding us bar snacks continuously while we enjoyed drinks on the terrace. The view from our lake front room had us speechless on arrival and we couldnt have asked any more from a 3 star hotel. The roof top terrace is terrific, good wi-fi speeds, and good breakfast. We would definitely book this Hotel again. Thank you Hotel Metropole for looking after us so well and making our stay so special :)
