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

We stayed at this hotel for a week in September 2014 and had a fantastic time. We had a superior room with a balcony, although it was small it was exceptionally clean and bright and had a superb view of the lake. Albert, along with the very friendly reception and restaurant staff made us feel very welcome and genuinely glad... More

We stayed in the hotel for one week. We were lucky and got a superior room with direct lake view. The staff of the reception was very service oriented and always friendly. They made our stay a fantastic vacation. When ever we needed something they made it happen. We felt like part of the family. I totally recommend the hotel.

We stayed in one of the hotel's apartments on the waterfront in Bellagio where the accommodation was basic but clean and workable, the beds really comfortable and the location absolutely fabulous- we had a terrace overlooking the lake, 30 secs from the ferry terminal and within walking distance of all of the restaurants. They picked us up in the morning... More

We had the opportunity to spend 1night at this lovely hotel due to a late change in travel plans. We got the last available room which turned out to be the best room in the hotel. The view from the balcony was post card quality overlooking beautiful Lake Como. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. Big perk was the... More

A lovely little hotel. Good value and great location. It's not the Vila d'Este but it sits on the lake and is ideal for a few nights break. The staff could not have been more helpful and the restaurant (where we had breakfast) had a stunning view. Our room was a little small otherwise I'd have given it 5.
