Our first trip to Lake Como last weekend and my boyfriend found this gem of a hotel. The location can't be better right on the lake! And right in the heart of the teeny romantic town. Get a room with a balcony to wake up, step outside and overlook one of the most beautiful sights in Europe. The balconies are just large enough for two chairs to enjoy Prosecco in the evening and watch the ferries come and go down below in the warm afternoon sun. The noise was not bothersome at all but good to know that the ferry dock is very close, which is a really good thing when you want to get to/from Bellagio. The hotel is beautifully antique but the rooms and lobby are renovated, so there are new floors, no old dirty rugs like in some older European hotels, and new appliances including a cute little flat screen, and fresh paint. Breakfast in the dining room with huge windows looking out to the lake is a perfect way to start the day. I hope I'm lucky enough to go back to Bellagio and if I do I will stay again.
