Recently, friends preparing for their first trip to the Lake Como area asked for a hotel suggestion in Bellagio. Since we have stayed twice at the Hotel Metropole most recently in June of 2011 for a week, the Metropole was at the top of our list. On both stays we found the Hotel to be clean, convenient with a very courteous staff. We are planning to return ourselves in 2013.
By far the Metropole is the best value of any direct waterfront hotel in Bellagio. We would suggest a corner room for a bit more space and a direct view of the lake. Breakfast is included in the price and we found the view from the dining room spectacular, the buffet style offerings were of very good quality. The location is unparalleled, as you can essentially walk out the front door and be at the dock or a local restaurant in minutes. The staff at the front desk is among the best that we have encountered on our many trips to Italy. They are friendly, professional and helpful. They will always steer you in the right direction, figuratively and literally and will offer great suggestions in planning your itinerary. Within minutes they had us mapped out for boat and bus ride to Lugano Switzerland without problem.
Be sure to enjoy the roof top terrace that is open for guests. It offers a great respite for travelers and very relaxing spot after a long day cruising the lake. Purchase a bottle of wine and cheese from a local alimentari and sit an watch the weather come across the lake and mountains. A remakable view from a great hotel.
