Residence Antico Pozzo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 October 2011

My husband and I recently spent 4 nights at Residenza Antico Pozzo in beautiful Bellagio on Lake Como. We chose this residence after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. Particularly for location and the ease to get to when travelling by train from Milan. Also the fact that it is only a few seconds walk from the lovely waterfront!! We trained from Milan to Varenna, hopped on the ferry over to Bellagio and walked from the ferry dock to Antico Pozzo. There are quite a few steps - so be warned if you have baggage - it can be quite a challenge to get up. However, take your time and it's well worth it!

We were in the Blue Room (apt 2) which was a great size, extremely clean, fully selfcontained with lovely kitchenette including microwave, fridge, Coffee/Tea facilities, dishwasher, hotplate and all you would need to organise your own breakfast or cook a basic meal. The apartment is furnished with a dining room table and chairs to eat at, Flat screen TV and a pullout sofa bed should you have children with you or an extra person.Perfect!

The bathroom is a good size with lots of room and the window opens over the roof tops to glimpses of the Lake. The rest of the apartment is a good size, with the other window opening up overlooking the bell tower of the nearby church. Very pretty.

The apartments are located over a restaurant, through a security door of which you have your own key. There is a bit of noise when the restaurant is busy during the evening, however, it soon goes quiet towards midnight. So no problems for us. However, we were there in October, perhaps it would be alot more noisier during the busier holiday months.

The waterfront is the place to be to sit and have a meal, coffee, or an aperitif and watch the world go by. A beautiful spot and so relaxing with gorgeous views of the Lake. It is a lovely walk along the Lake to check out the nearby Villa and enjoy the gardens.

The Tourist Office offers a 2 hour self walking tour of which my husband and I did and we highly recommend. It basically takes you around Bellagio and a little out of the town walking you through nearby villages and enabling you to enjoy the views of the lovely countryside. Or hop on a Ferry to check out the other pretty towns and lovely houses on the Lake.

We loved staying at Antico Pozzo, the staff were relaxed and could not do enough for us. Highly recommend it and great value for money. You will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: Blue Room is great for a couple - and perhaps a small child using the pull out sofa bed.

Perfectly placed but we found the furnishings rather dark and gloomy. We had a view of rooftops not lake. It would be lovely if part of the outside could be allocated as a sitting-out area for residents, but it is all restaurant - admittedly a very good and popular one (10% discount for guests). On the service side, we didn't notice any. Unlike other residenzas which we stayed at on the same holiday, the bed was not made up daily and we had a change of towels on the first day of our four days only. Rather random!
Still, it's Bellagio so who's going to grumble when you are in such a glorious place!

Ask for number 6 with its stunning lake views.
The restaurant is also excellent, the food is reasonably priced which is a surprise when you see the quality, the food is fresh and traditional and very well presented and you seem to get a 10% discount for being a resident.
Staff are very polite, a genuine politeness not what you experience in Greece & Spain.

Bellagio itself ................................... you had best come see for yourself

Room Tip: Number 6 it has views over the Lake

My husband and I had 2 nights to spend in the amazing town of Bellagio on 22nd through 24th April. I had found reference to this place after reserching the area of Bellagio and Como for reasonable hotels. This place by far was the best with an amazing price as well.

We stayed in the blue room and had a glorious view of the lake and mountains. The size of the apartment was better than most hotel rooms in Europe and had a full kitchenette, spacious bathroom and sitting/dining area as well. Storage options for those staying for longer periods of time were plentiful.

The staff was incredible as well. Tended to our every need and also worked tirelessly in the restaurant downstairs. Although I read some complaints about noise and the smell of food in other reviews, I find that this is part of the charm of Bellagio and loved every wafting scent and bustling noice of tables and people on the cobblestone walkways.

To put this place in reference I had HHonors points to use and while in Rome we stayed at the Rome Cavalieri - 5 star hotel. The place was absolutely gorgeous, but could not match the charm and joie de vie that we found at Residenza Antico Pozzo.

I would gladly spend another trip here again and have been recommending this to everyone I know! Thank you for such a wonderful memory!

Room Tip: Definitely email to request the Blue Room.

We love this place, it's like a home away from home in beautiful Bellagio. The place is clean, safe, well kept/furnished and very well located. We particularly appreciate the good (inclusive) internet connection. Highly recommended.

We had the appt. Venta di Rosi, and everything was good. Nice view on the little village of Bellagio, but no view on the lake. Professional cleaning, and quiet. If the price would be a bit cheaper, it would be perfect. But you pay what you get for. We really enjoyed it.
