“Can't wait to return!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

We had the most wonderful experience at the Hotel Florence. Perfect location and amazingly attentive staff. The room was spacious and offered a perfect view of the lake and mountains. We were in room 24. See attached picture for the view from the balcony. Timothy cheerfully welcomed us upon arrival. We felt he had been waiting for us! Georgia remembered us each morning for breakfast and brought our coffees with a smile. The breakfast spread had many wonderful options and we never went hungry. So happy Hotel Florence was recommended by our friends.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Our room was number 4. The smell mentioned earlier was gone. Lucky for us. It was a little small but what a view. It had a large terrace the size of the room and a new bathroom with tub and hand shower.
When we first arrived, I was a little disappointed. The interior has a little age on it and looking back we had just left a hotel in Verona that was a large corporate hotel not a small family hotel. This skewed my judgement. But by the end of our trip I really liked Hotel Florence. Friendly staff, great restaurant by the water and amazing location.

Room Tip: Lake view, ask for a tub if you want one, and a large terrace

Hotel was in a superb spot with amazing views. The staff were great and friendly and all spoke perfect English among many other languages.

The room was very large but a little old in its amenities but that didn't worry us much as most of the time was spent walking along the front enjoying the view.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

We stayed at this hotel several years ago. It was decent, nothing more.
The genesis for this. Review was the bartender who took care of us in the hotel bar.
He was very helpful with dining options we would not have considered, and also suggested
Places we had on our list to avoid.
If you are here during the summer months, an Aperol Spritz is quite refreshing between 5 and 6 pm.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in front, and preferably a corner room with two balconies.

We stayed in room 1 and loved the terrace access, but weather was very hot on one day and we couldn't sit out there as too hot (an umbrella would have been useful). We enjoyed the breakfast, large room and location - the view down the lake was stunning.

Room Tip: Room 1 or 3 to get terrace

We really enjoyed our stay - we had a second floor rear room which overlooked a pretty courtyard but you can also see the village climbing up the hill to the church, so we didn't mind that we weren't facing the lake. The pillows are a bit hard and they don't have an alternative, and there is only a shower attachment in the bath but those two small negatives couldn't take away from the charm of the hotel. The decor is lovely with a lot of rustic antique furniture, and the lovely high beamed ceilings, shutters and soft lighting really made it feel romantic. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was nice ( fresh fruit, croissants, bread, and scrambled egg and bacon) . We would definitely stay again.

This hotel is a little gem within a most beautiful Italian Lakes town. The staff are exceptional and greet you like old and valued friends, nothing is too much trouble. We enjoyed a weeks stay in a 4th floor balcony room with a stunning view of Lake Como. The town of Bellagio is a very popular location, which boasts an excellent ferry service that supports visits to any of the other lakeside towns, I can recommend Varenna and Tremezzo (if only for the Villa Balbianello).
There is free WiFi in the hotel, although we were warned the signal was sometimes weak, we had very little trouble using it.
The spa was intimate but very good, large jacuzzi, steam and sauna. You need to book in advance but we had it for the full afternoon to ourselves and it was pure luxury, with a delightful view onto their private garden.
We booked this holiday without the need for a travel agent and have to say what a good experience it turned out to be, taxi transfer organised through the hotel was very efficient. Surprisingly for this day and age, no deposits were required, which made us nervous initially, but we needn't have worried - and a 10% reduction for paying cash when we finally checked out! What more can you ask for? A really good find and to be recommended for anyone who wants a genuine Italian experience in a truly charming and welcoming family run hotel.
