“Very disappointing - go elsewhere.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2011

After traveling Paris, London, Rome, Cinque Terre - was looking forward to Lake Como, but the hotel was a major disappointment. Tiny bathroom, walls marked and dirty, king bed was two twins that had seen better days. Several requests for air conditioning resulted in no improvement. Leaving early as any other hotel will be better.

Even a shop owner in town shook his head when we mentioned our hotel.

Wish others had been more accurate or discerning with their reviews before we selected this hotel.

We stayed here in mid-May, 2011. The rooms were a bit small but updated as well as the bathroom. Comfortable with gorgeous views of the lake. Recommend floors 3 and 4 for the best views. Floor 3 has some rooms with small balconies. The windows scroll down electrically which is great for letting in air, but keep in mind the mosquitos will love you. We didn't have A.C. as the electric company hadn't turned it on yet, but it cooled down late in the evening and we were quite comfortable. We found all the bed in Italy no matter where we stayed were very firm and the pillows not as full as we have at home in America typically. But all in all, comfortable, quaint, nicely decorated, updated. The little town itself if very charming. Breakfast was basic stuff but nice and good coffee. The hotel itself was easy to find once we got off the boat. Make sure to wear flat shoes on the steps.

Room Tip: Get a 3rd or 4th Floor Room

Lots of good things about this hotel: great location, very clean rooms, helpful staff, decent breakfast (although no meat or cheese).

But, although the hotel has air conditioning, it wasn't 'turned on yet' (it was only the last weekend in April). This was fine during the day, but at night, when we had to close the windows, the room got really stuffy. Even with the windows closed, we could still hear the birds and church bells early in the morning, so needless to say, not a great nights' sleep.

Now, to be fair, it would seem like this could be a problem at any other hotel in town, so perhaps I'm being too harsh.

We stayed in Bellagio just before New Years 2010. We headed there from Switzerland. What a fantastic introduction to Italy. Bellagio was quiet when we arrined, being the middle of winter and all. The hotel was very easy to locate as we had used Google maps and this website etc. It is just a short walk up some stairs to reception.

The man behind the desk was very welcoming and spoke excellent English. We booked a lake view room which we would recommend to anyone because, lets face it you go to Bellagio to see the lake. The room itself had electric blinds and a massive window that was also automated. Cleanliness was of a high standard and the ensuite was not huge by Australian standards but it was reasonable for Italy.

Breakfast was probably the best of all the places we stayed in Italy, with coffee that actually had milk in it, not just an espresso!

We left early the following morning so when paying our bill the night before we asked what time the kitchen opened and we were told at 0700, which suited our worked for us as we were catching the ferry to Como. However when we went down to the kitchen before we left we found that it was not open. Do not let that one fact turn you off this hotel as it was by far the best one we stayed in in Italy!!

Room Tip: Book a room above the 4th floor for the view.

I'm never sure when I book if the hotel will be a good fit, but I sure was lucky on this one. Loved the charming location, a bit off the main street but in the heart of everything. 5 min walk max to ferry. My guess is most rooms have views of Lake Como. Rooms are spacious and very cheerful and bright. Breakfast was outstanding, cereals, fruit, yogurt, pastry, rolls, etc. Everything was very clean and well attended by an efficient staff. Front desk (Graziano, Suri) were outstanding...helpful, knowledgeable. The day we expected to leave there was a train strike and Graziano helped us figure out how to travel. Earlier in the week he helped us figure out how to get trains so we could day-trip to Bernini Pass in Switzerland. Staff even packed us a breakfast. We planned four days at Hotel Bellagio and joyfully extended to six.
My only minus on the hotel was the hard mattress for my pleasure, but that could just be me.

Room Tip: The higher the floor the more beautiful the view..

Bellagio (and all the surrounding towns) indeed lives up the hype, and the Hotel Bellagio is a great way to enjoy it at a very reasonable price. Yes, you have to climb 38 famous shallow stone steps to get to the door, but it is literally across the street from the ferry. The staff is pleasant, English speaking and knowledgeable.

The room we had, while small, was more than pleasant,with a window and balcony overlooking the lake. The bed itself was wonderfully comfortable, literally as comfortable as any hotel bedroom I have ever slept on. The bathroom is small, without a tub if that is a deal breaker for any, but was clean and featured an excellent adjustable shower.

Breakfast was included, featuring croissants, a variety of cereal, juices, fruit, cheeses, etc. Great way to fortify for the day!

Finally, while we did not partake, the hotel has a sports facility with tennis, pool and beaches 10 minutes away (also a restaurant).

The desk is unattended at night if that is a concern, but the door is locked and accessed by your keycard. Absolutely no reason not to consider this spot if you are on Lake Como.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the lake are priceless.

Clean, cozy room with and incredible view. We loved it so much that we extended our room from two nights to three once we got there. We sat on our balcony every morning and enjoyed the peacefulness and beautiful view. The room is basic...we had a "king" bed (2 twin beds pushed together), there was a small tv, a desk and a closet. My only complaint was the quality of the pillows, they were hard. Everything else was fantastic. We were treated very well by everyone who worked there. The complimentary breakfast was nice and included fresh fruit, yogurts, breads, croissants, coffee & tea. The hotel is very near the ferry and bus stops. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: It is absolutely worth the upgrade to a lake view
