“I Have Now Seen Heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2012

After much research this hotel is right on the water whereas the others are across a street. What a view from the lake front rooms - "A View to Die For". Breakfast was simply great! Both restaurants were quite good with a beautiful lake and mountain view. The roof terrace was a great location for a picnic. Can't wait to return.

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Metropole for two nights in Bellagio. The hotel is in a fantastic location and you can pretty much walk to everything in the area. Our room was spotless and the view was breathtaking. We upgraded to a room with a lake view and it was worth every penny. The hotel staff could not have possibly been more helpful and the complimentary breakfast was above average. There are many restaurants and lots of shopping in the vicinty of the hotel. And the hotel has a nice area outside and on the roof for sipping wine and taking in the view. Early October was an excellent time to visit. The area was nice and quiet but it didn't feel like a ghost town. We could not have possibly chosen a better place to beging our Italian adventure and we hope to return!

Room Tip: Definitely upgrade to a room with a lake view. You will be glad that you did.

Our friends booked the last available room with a terrace, so we accepted a room with a balcony (still with lake views, though). we ended up with the better deal: The room had 2 windows with balconies - one looking out onto the lake, and the other onto the street below. Even the bathroom had a large window. Beautiful position and superb staff.

We'll return one day and ask for the same room, or the same on the 2nd floor.

Room Tip: Our room was on the first floor, and on the corner. Perfect. No noise at night-time once the touri...

My wife and I just spent four days and three nights at the Metrople and Bellagio. Bellagio is well worth the drive to it, although I think my wife chewed all of her fingernails off. The hotel is very well located, and our room was in the middle on the fourth floor. We had a small balcony, but the view was spectacular, at sunset one to die for. In the early morning, it was also great as the sun rose over the mountains and could hear the ducks and birds, just like heaven. The room was small and old, but was kept very clean. The staff was great except for one waiter that seemed to need an attitude adjustment. The staff would do all they could to help us, which is great when in a place for the first time. The lift was small and slow. Food for breakfast was great, and service was excellent. One young gent was great, made our day start out with a smile. Centrally located and the terrace for lunch was sooooooooooooooooo nice to sit and look out on the lake, we had fantastic weather, 70s in day and 50s at night, no clouds.

Just returned from a wonderful 4 night stay at the Hotel Metropole with my husband and 3 children under 11. After a very long 21hour flight from Australia and a 2 hour car ride to Bellgaio we were exhausted when we arrived but reinvigorated as soon as we stepped out of the car in front of this picturesque hotel. The staff could not have been more welcoming. The family room with a side lake view was clean and well maintained. The view from our window was spectacular even though it was only a side view. What makes this hotel, aside from the friendly staff and its wonderful lakeside location is the roof terrace. What a wonderful way to end a day of sightseeing by sitting on the roof terrace admiring the view with a glass of local chianti. The children enjoyed the extra space as well and could spread out with the numerous chairs and tables provided. Breakfast on the open terrace was delicious and plentiful. Yoghurts, fruits and many hot items on offer as well. The coffee was suprisingly good considering it came from a dispensing machine. The hot chocolate was also a favourite with the kids. I would definately recommend this hotel for families with children and for the elderly. Cant wait to return. Bellagio is beautiful and a wonderful place for a relaxing holiday.

We stayed at Hotel Metropole for 3 nights and were delighted with the accommmodation. We had a room on the 4th floor overlooking the spectacular Lake Como. The location was superb, the rooms very comfortable and the staff extremely helpful. The parking in Bellagio is a bit of a challenge but with the help of the staff we parked on the street about 4 minutes away. You are advised to pay for parking until 8.30 p.m. and then move your car. Great system and it works. Ferries and restaurants are all within walking distance. Advantage of 4th floor is that floor has the rooftop terrace which is great spot to relax and enjoy the view (and maybe a bottle of wine). The breakfast was more than adequate. Bellagio is a wonderful location and only a 1 hour drive from Como. Would highly recommend this Hotel and would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Lake view - 4th floor

Thank you to the lovely owner and staff of this family hotel in the best spot on Bellagio! One of the few, if only, places right over the water. Spectacular views. We booked a water front room with balcony which has two chairs and a little table - fantastic to watch the Bellagio world go by. Each and every staff member we encountered was delightful and friendly! The breakfast included was plentiful and extensive for the usual expected breakfast. We had a lovely half-board included meal the first night which was delightful and much needed after a long day of travelling. We have written another review about a fantastic lunch experience recommended by the hotel. The staff helped us with directions and travel arrangements for the next stage of our journey..with the owner even offering to drive us to Lecco to pick up our hire car! We would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Bellagio for the quaint style of hotel, the fabulous service and outstanding views and very reasonable cost. Do get a lake-front room though. We have also reviewed Bellagio water taxis for a great tour experience at Bellagio! Thank you Hotel Metropole Bellagio!

Room Tip: Lake front room ...For sure!
