I was charmed with the photos of this hotel when I was just looking for a place to stay in Bellagio. And I was really happy with the choice I made! Now in detail:
LOCATION &VIEWS. Wonderful! It’s just on the waterfront, close to the boat and ferry landing (don’t worry about the announcements or noise – they’re not disturbing and if you close the windows are not audible at all). The panorama from the rooms with a lake view is gorgeous – believe me, you’ll take a great number of fantastic photos of the lake just from your personal balcony or terrace.
ROOMS. Good and clean. The style is not outstanding but very pleasant and there’s everything you need. The beds are comfortable. The a/c in our room was working well. One thing I missed was a good safe with a digital lock. The bathroom was big enough and it was funny to take photos also from there – we had a corner room and there was a little window in the bathroom too.
BREAKFAST. I liked it! Very tasty cappuccino and croissants!
STAFF. Friendly and always available.
SURROUNDINGS. I haven’t been to the hotel’s restaurant preferring to dine at Terrazza Barchetta in Salita Mella. It’s a very romantic restaurant with candles, flowers, good wines and tasty dishes.
Visit Villa Carlotta with its magnificent botanic garden and take a boat trip to Como (or you can go there by bus and return by boat). The northern part of the lake (Lago di Colico) is less popular with tourists so it’s quieter. But to my mind the most beautiful part is the central one, around Bellagio. The city of Como is not so beautiful but it’s worth going up to Brunate and from there to the viewing point in Parco Marenghi.
P.S. They say, Franz Liszt and Mark Twain stayed here... Not a bad company!:)
