Overall, staff was very helpfull and gave us a welcome feeling from the moment we arived. The rooms were small but efficient and clean. Too bad the terras wasn't inviting to sit on. however the small balcony was a welcome change from our room.
The ventilation in our room was good. The breakfast was more than decent, plenty of choice, croissants to baguette and sweet and savory products. The breakfast was included in the overal price which was the main reason we chose this hotel.
The location of the hotel was ok, you have to have a car to really get arround. There are a couple of beautifull hikes in the vicinity of Il nibbio. But for each you definitaly need a car to get there. We also enjoyed the little beach in St. Giovanni, recommended to us by the hostes. Were parking was free, but you had to be there before 10 or else all spots were taken, and after that it is 1,5 euro-hour for parking in Bellagio. So parking sometimes was a problem.
It was a shame that Il Nibbio´s restaurant was closed, but thankfully there is a small Italian restaurant with homemade pasta (La Fontanella) just 5 min away. Where the staff was also very friendly and the food great.
All in all we had a lovely 7 days around lake Como with Il nibbio as our homebase. Very recomendable and a very affordable price. We enjoyed it thouroughly.
