The rooms and bathrooms were very clean. The bed very comfortable, and the sheets and linens were thick and clean. The breakfast nice, typical euro hotel breakfast (altho, it ended at 10am which is still kind of early for some vacationers like us). Hot water never ran out. Really polite, multi-lingual, friendly, helpful staff.
I'd stay there again if I had to go back to Bellagio. (Which I probably won't because I found Bellagio and the other towns on the lake kind of boring.)
My favorite thing:
There are deck chairs and tables on the roof - nice view. Take a bottle of wine up there and watch the sun set. We brought pizza up there one night too for dinner. Nice.
The wifi was weak, like one bar. And, they give you one set of credentials per room so if there are 2 of you you both can't be online at the same time. Not a big deal really if you are on vacation.
Really didn't like:
Live band with a PA system outside our window at the cafe next door playing for several hours for 2 nights while we were there. (And cheesy lounge music too.) The front desk people said there was nothing they could do because the band had a permit from the city to play there at those hours. One night they played pretty late which was annoying because we were trying to sleep.
Also, be aware that this hotel is smack in the middle of town rather close to the large car ferry dock. So, when your windows are open you get lots of noise from people shouting on the street, the occasional car (not all Bellagio is car-free), and most annoyingly the car ferry and its fumes. It was a little noisier than we'd expected. However, overall, it is a nice, clean, well-run hotel so it's worth the minor annoyances IMHO.
