“Very Good but.....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2012

The best location in Bellagio...without a doubt. Only one directly on the water. Simple, clean, and reasonable...a 3 star rating is what it gets, but that is a push.
Very tired. Needs new pillows, bed spreads and new carpets....then it would be a true 3 Star. With some work it could even become a 4...with that location.

Room Tip: Be sure to get a room with a balcony overlooking the lake...you begin to forget the room behind you.

We stayed at this hotel in August,
The position is just perfect, we had lakeside rooms and the view was just beautiful, rooms very clean and comfortable and the bathrooms large and also very clean. Dining is by the Lake again with a gorgeous view. Breakfast was very good and the dinner menu quite acceptable but prob ably not as good as nearby Restaurants. Staff very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay there again if we visited Bellagio.

The excellent position of this well-established hotel, offers its guests a marvellous view of Lake Como, from the small balconies. Our room offered us additional views of the street adjacent to the lake, from the large side windows, including a French style glass door to a decorative-only balcony, from the bathroom!! Curtains offered privacy (when needed) in the bathroom.

The room was reasonably large and tastefully furnished. It was clean and generally well presented.

Staff was friendly but at the time we were there, the waiters at the Hotel restaurant were somewhat disorganised. Our meal at the restaurant was not great - a pity because the view was magnificent!
A small disadvantage... Rooms situated above the restaurant were affected by the cooking odours, especially fish frying, at times. Well, nothing can be absolutely perfect but this hotel came close to perfection.

Stayed here for three nights with my husband and we loved it. We had the corner room and although the room was a bit dated, it was lovely and very clean. The location is perfect as it is right on the lakeside. Breakfast was adequate. Highly recommended, but do pay extra for a room with a terrace and preferably the corner room!

Room Tip: Get the corner room

We were there for 2 nights and the hotel was exactly what we expected, very clean and comfortable and the service was very very good, the breakfast in the morning was a lot better than most of the places we have stayed....by far, is very well worth getting up for, I would recommend getting up at 6:30 am and go for a walk in town, no one around and superfantastic for picture taking....I would recommend this place to anyone.....enjoy

PS.....Sept. or early Aug. is the best time to go.....

Room Tip: Always try for a Lake view room and pay extra....it will make all the difference in the world....tru...

We booked a room in the Hotel Metropole for our Ruby Wedding Holiday on the advice of a friend who I must add, had only seen the Hotel from the Lake.
We paid extra to have a Lake Front View Room with balcony on an upper floor .
The room (apart from the view) was a disappointment. Two single beds and not enough room for two of us to pass at the foot of the beds. I know there is a mark up for Bellagio but I'm afraid the room wasn't worth what we paid and then we had to pay another 20 euros tax for staying for 7 nights.
The Terrace restaurant was beautiful but beware the Maitre d' . I was not allowed to join my wife at her table unless I followed him all around the restaurant. The other waiters were quite embarrassed by his attitude and we were moved by them to the best table in the restaurant.
The food was fine but not outstanding like the view.
The balcony was also very small . Just room for two very small stools and hopefully like us you will have pleasant 'balcony friends' on the adjacent balcony about 1 metre away.

The Metropole is very handy for the ferry office and landing stages .

Room Tip: Don't pay extra for a lake front view and some of the Lake side rooms do not have a balcony.

This was our first of nine hotels on our recent 2 week trip to Italy. We stayed here for two nights. The location in Bellagio is perfect - it can't get much better. We had a gorgeous view overlooking Lake Como and the main street in Bellagio. The bed wasn't the most comfortable, but it was comparable to every other hotel bed we had during our trip. The room was clean. The breakfast was one of the better breakfasts we had. We purchased a bottle of wine and sat up on the rooftop deck. It was very peaceful and relaxing. Be sure to check out my other reviews of hotels, shops and restaurants in Bellagio and other cities in italy.

Room Tip: Rooms that overlook the street offer a beautiful lake view at a good price.
