“Lake views...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

Chose this hotel because of location by ferry building for returning to Como, then Zurich. Arrived by bus which was an experience! 50 minutes on an ordinary city bus full of passengers with no place for suitcases which weren't as large as some others. Pleased to use hydrofoil on return. Hotel rooms o.k. My son's had a bath & a balcony which he appreciated. There were no english channels on television. Very good breakfast in pleasant room with lake views. Helpful staff on reception. Hotel next door to shops and restaurants. Pleasant stay.

Beautiful old style hotel with modern amenities. Staff was very helpful, and the views of the lake are awesome! Hotel is in center of town. Rooms were quiet and comfortable. I'd gladly stay there again.

The Hotel Du Lac is a wonderful place to to stay in Bellagio. The location was in the heart of town and right across from the ferry building close to stores and restaurants. The view out our window was nothing less than spectacular showing Lake Como surrounded by the snow covered Alps...breathtaking! Our room was clean and spacious with a very comfortable bed. The Manager and his top notch staff are friendly and efficient. My husband needed copies of a PDF for work and Sylvia was right on it. She even provided a highlighter. The Manager (I'm sorry I didn't get his name) is a kind man with an easy smile. He gave us several tips on how to get around which saved us several Euro. We will be back!

Room Tip: As others have stated..ask for a view of the lake when you book your reservations. You won't be...

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. The location was perfect, room was spacious, staff was accommodating, and our lake view room was ideal. The lake view was requested when we made reservations---a MUST! Dinner at the hotel was very good. Plus, ideal location for ferry or water taxi.
I'm a sucker for huge tubs and soaking after a day of walking, and the bathroom did not disappoint. The breakfast was okay. I'm giving our room 3 stars only because switch plates were loose or hanging----however, huge bed, clean clean clean and comfy!

We arrived at the hotel to check in only to discover that I had accidentally booked our lakefront room on the wrong dates! The front desk staff didn't miss a beat though - they called a few nearby hotels and arranged for a similar room (lakefront) at a nearby hotel for one night and booked a lakefront room for us in the Hotel du Lac for the rest of our stay. The location is outstanding and views are almost unreal. It's a classic, old hotel with a classic feel, but clean and well-appointed. The restaurant downstairs was hopping and a fun place to hang out and people-watch. We really enjoyed the pastries in the attached coffee shop too. It made our first Lake Como experience just perfect.

First time we went to Bellagio was in 1987. Fairly undiscovered except for the Italians who summer vacationed there. It was a very good experience and we wanted to see how things had changed since being discovered.
We picked Hotel Du Lac because it was right next to the ferry landing and in the center of town activities. We arrived late (missed flight from Frankfort) but hotel staff was there waiting for us. The helped find a parking place, carried our luggage to our rooms, and generally most gracious hosts. The have a restaurant upsstairs on a balcony (not owned by hotel but owner made us feel like we were his best friends) that fed us a very good late dinner with local wines. Our rooms were large with private balcony, a/c, with electric shade to mask the ship docking and chruch bell ring on the hour. The town had excellent shopping and numerous other very good restaurants. If you are going to Bellagio we recommend this hotel (priced fairly) and very good staff to make your stay most enjoyable.

Room Tip: We like the private balcony rooms to sit and have coffee looking out on the lake.

We had a superb dinner on P. Mazzini in Bellagio at Hotel du Lac. Food was exquisite and service exceptional. Just perfect! The pastas and fish (tuna from the Med.) were prepared perfectly and were delicious. While this restaurant might appear to cater to tourists, our dinner could not have been better. Great location, too.
