My husband and I had stayed at Hotel Silvio in April several years ago and really enjoyed our stay. When we decided to go back (end of October) and take his Mom, we thought we would stay here again as it was so lovely the first time. I'm not sure if it was just the end of the season, or... More

No matter what your thoughts are on the minimalist modernist rooms or the 20 minute walk uphill from the centre of Bellagio or the simple but nutritious breakfast - it really is ALL ABOUT THE VIEW. We stayed in Room 5 and this had 2 balconies. Just bring along a candle , a bottle of prosecco and some nibbles and... More

We stayed for five nights - room 10 on first floor with side balcony. The room was very good but foliage could have been trimmed back to improve view. Excellent location with lovely view over Lake Como. The food was very good but the front part of the restaurant with the best view was closed of most times at breakfast... More

Stayed here a couple of nights ago on our way back to the UK from Tuscany. Lovely hotel and in a lovely position - slightly set back from the lake and in an elevated position. The reception staff were excellent - particular plaudits should go to Albert, Sabrina, Monica and Guila for whom nothing was too much trouble. The hotel... More

My review is based on Hotel Silvio being a 3 star hotel. We don't normally book anything less than 4 star hotels, but so pleased that we gave this a try. The welcome and information we were given on arrival was exceptional and Albert in particular was most helpful, courteous and pleasant. Yes, the hotel is a 15 minute walk... More

We enjoyed our stay at the hotel because of its wonderful location and the very professional and accommodating reception staff. Albert and Sabrina were so friendly and welcoming that we returned at the end of our holiday for some extra time at the hotel. The restaurant however is run very differently and really lets the hotel down.The restaurant staff enthusiastically... More

We thought we had found a 'boutique hotel' but how wrong we were. Our room 14, we were assured by Alberto on the phone was amazing just a little smaller than the one we first booked. The room did have lovely views but was so small with only a tiny wardrobe and a couple of shelves that we could not... More

The room and bathroom was minuscule. The shower was smaller than on our small sailboat. Way too uncomfortable. The walls were thin--we could hear our neighbors at 2am! The hotel personnel is wonderfully helpful and friendly and caring. Breakfast was OK but the room was exquisite--overlooking Lake Como--so the view made up for the average food selection.

We stayed here many times between 2000 and 2007, when it was still run by the whole Ponzini family. It was always a wonderful, homely place to stay, where Elena and her mum made you feel part of the family. Sadly, after a seven year gap, we returned to find it had changed, but sadly for the worse. Yes, it... More
