Spent an excellent week in September at this typically Italian hotel. The room (no 64) was excellently situated at the front of the hotel overlooking the car ferry terminal and all the activity of the resort with fantastic views of the lake. the room and hotel in general was spotlessly clean and,yes,a little dated but this all added to the...

We stayed at the Hotel Excelsior Splendide in October with our adult daughter. It was difficult to find hotels that would accommodate 3 people but this hotel was one that would. After reading reviews I was a bit leary, but it was awesome! We parked our car in Varenna, ferried across and had a lovely weekend. The location is great,... More

Great location. Good size room. But...be aware that this hotel is geared up for unfortunate package tour holidaymakers. At first glance the hotel looks great. But problems with the room included: view onto flat roof, noisy air conditioning, horrible little soaps and shampoos...Food: breakfast was awful. How they can serve up such poor quality is totally beyond me. Not helped... More

Definately go for the sea view rooms, and to be honest the ferry noise is not an issue, it's all part of the holiday experience. The Staff are friendly and made us feel welcome, the room was large and comfortable and I guess the ensuite had been recently refurbished. The views over the lake first thing in the morning are...

When we walked into our room and opened the curtain we were greeted by a spectacular view of Lake Como. The room is clean and well presented with heaps of space and good furnishings. You walk out the front right near the ferry terminals and main strip of shops and cafes. Fantastic staff also - very pleasant.

We had 4 wonderful days in Bellagio, mid September, staying at this hotel. We could not fault it. We had a beautiful room on the front (room 39) overlooking the lake. The room was large and spacious with a comfy bed and a clean large bathroom with shower and plenty of hot water. The view from our balcony was magical.... More

Great location, room was very good and spacious. Staff less than helpful. Toiletries not replenished daily. Breakfast was less then ordinary and staff very unhelpful and two mornings had to ask for the food to be replenished in the buffet.

Fairly large hotel overlooking the ferry stop. They have a nice restaurant across from the entrance that is outdoors and covered right on the lake. The room was large. One drawback was that this is right downtown and it got noisy fairly early when the first ferry arrived at 7 am. There is no parking.

I visited Bellagio in early June and this hotel was everything and more in terms of location and comfort. Although I have read reviews saying the hotel is dated, I felt otherwise especially after staying in many other hotels in Italy throughout the trip. It had everything I needed, was very clean and we had an incredible view from our... More

This hotel is in a beautiful location. The views of the lake and the alps are stunning and romantic. The room was spacious and clean and the bed and pillows were comfortable. However, The staff were rude and openly showed their intolerance and impatience when serving breakfast. Breakfast was from 7.30 to 9.30am, however at 9.15am, for the four mornings... More
