You will love this hotel. Car and people ferries back and forth all day long starting at 5:30am and ending just short of midnight basically bookend this property between Pontile 2 and 4. It can get a little monotonous and diesel smelling when the winds blow toward the hotel. If you book a lake view room with a terrace the ferry thing is the only drawback to this wonderful property. I second the other reviews about killer views of the lake. Postcard! Also, staff and breakfast were wonderful, and the bed was very comfortable. The French doors and heavy metal shutters blocked out the whole world, but be careful not to sleep through breakfast as it ends at 10:30. A big shoutout to the gal who manages breakfast - always smiling and happy.
A couple of suggestions for Bellagio: take the fast boat from Como and snap a quick pic of the Star Wars/Casino Royale villa, and Clooney's villa. The slow boat is really really slow. It's still Italy with all of the in your face reality, not Lake Lucerne. Bellagio is a beautiful tourist trap, and so is Varenna, but I'd rather be trapped in Varenna. The La Fontana in Bellagio was a relative great value (see pic of three table line up of 'well-heeled' Americans). Hope to be back someday.
