“Very nice hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2011

We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 nights at this hotel. The staff gave a really good and friendly service - Rosanna, Rosy, Giovanna, Marco and Gloria just to pick a few of the names I can remember. But all the staff were excellent, I really can't fault them in any way.
We used the pool, jacuzzi, gym, sauna and tukish bath and they were excellent facilities.
My wife and I had a room with a lake view and our two children shared a room on the other side of the corridor. The rooms were fine, the only disappointment was the size of the bathroom in our room so my wife and I used the shower in the children's room which was so much bigger.
The breakfasts and evening meals were lovely, we really enjoyed the food. However, considering the cost of the holiday and the fact we were half-board, I think not having water included with your evening meal is a bit insulting.
The hotel setting is magnificent with breathtaking views over Lake Como.
Car parking was good with the hotel having it's own private car park.
All in all, a really nice place to stay.

Just returned from a lovely weeks holiday in this charming, friendly,spotlessly clean hotel, The room we had was quite small with a tiny bathroom. which were both adequate but the terrace and the lake view were fantastic. would recommend it anytime. there are far more grand places to stay in Bellagio but the Belvedere suited us and was just what we wanted, Be warned its a ten minute walk up hill from the town, you will need it to walk off the fantastic dinners.
A point I would like to make is booking meals and drinks to the room should be signed for. we were a little suprised at check out with the bill, wouldnt have thought water at dinner should be charged for.

Room Tip: lake view is worth the extra

As with other reviewers we loved the location, view and quiet relaxing atmosphere of the Hotel Belvedere. The hotel interior, the grounds, pool etc. were perfectly kept, very clean and comfortable there was very little to fault and we would definitely visit again. This is a beautiful, calm and tranquil place to stay when visiting the gorgeous Lake Como area.

The least favourable aspects of our stay were that our room on the fourth floor, with a beautiful lake view, was quite basic compared to the rest of the hotel. There weren't any pictures on the walls and it lacked a mirror, other than the one in the bathroom which quickly steamed up due to lack of extraction and air conditioning, both these items could easlily and inexpensively be provided and I am sure would be appreciated as much on the fourth floor as they are in other rooms in the hotel. The mini bar fridge was a very basic brown metal appliaince that should have been fitted into a cabinet but there was no furniture to house it and again it rather let the room down when the rest of the hotel was so stylish and the tariff far from the budget end of the scale. Extra pillows were available and were needed but we found the bed to be very comfortable, unlike some other reviewers. We were staying in what we felt was quite an expensive hotel e.g. £9 for a bottle of Peroni beer, £4 for a coffee, £25 to have a dress ironed but our overall experience was not as enjoyable as that of other guests paying these same prices at the bar or restaurant and for hotel services who were in far superior rooms. Our room was only serviced once in the evening during an 11 night stay and received a "lick and a promise" some days but the maid seemed very busy so we didn't mind. Some reception staff were decidely frosty although quite efficient - smile... you're working in hospitality! The delightful family owners were friendly, efficient and are running a beautiful establishment. Congratulations but please listen to guest's suggestions and requests to make your hotel even better and worthy of it's relatively expensive tariff which ever room they happen to be staying in.

Room Tip: If we were to book again I would prefer not to stay on the fourth floor as our room was rather disap...

We found this hotel to be a nice place to stay. away from the busy lakeside roads and ferry points. We stayed on a halfboard basis. The breakfast was buffet style with fruit, cereals,cakes and bread. The evening meal was a 3 course option with usually 3 options for each course. The evening meals were of good quality.
It seemed to thunder storm most nights at 6pm but on the days the weather was fine they insisted on the evening meal being outside. The view was great but it attracted wasps and flies which was off putting and we dreaded the meal if it were outside.
The pool was small so with 6 people in its full. The bed was very hard, like a slab in the morgue and the shower had no hook to hold it to the wall which is basic .
BEWARE...the hotel don't tell you that the water you are given at evening meals is NOT free and when we checked out they asked for 40 EURO (its 4euro a botlle) I found this cheeky as no where it states that it is chargeable nor do the staff tell you.
They even charge you for mobile phone Wifi 5 euro an hour.
If you want to go to Milan don't use the travel agents they charge about 50euro per person. Get a ferry to Verrena and walk to the train station. Its a 15min steady walk with a slight incline (just follow the statzione signs) Once you get to a crossing with a bar on the corner go inside the travel shop next door and get a first class return to Milan. It cost 17euro and takes 1 hr to get to Milan, one stop along the way and you dont have to change trains. Make sure you pick the carriage with a 1 on the side or you'll be in second class with no air con!

We had the good fortune of staying at Belvedere last week. The experience was wonderful. Cant find one bad thing to say about the hotel. We had a deluxe room in the main building facing the lake. The views were breathtaking. We used the restaurant every day. The food was outstanding and the service was exceptional. The hotel also has a terrific wine list and interesting wine cellar. I would recommend asking for a tour if you are a wine lover. Valentina, Marco and Oskar gave us exceptional service at Reception, the restuarant and pool. The clearly understand customer service.

Room Tip: Request a Deluxe room in the main bulding....Room 414...panoramic views of the lake

Great position in Bellagio and lovely views. New & updated facilities really nice. (pool, jacuzzi, fitness centre). However rooms appear to vary a great deal.
We paid extra for a lake view, but our ground floor room was was noisy from the restaurant terrace above and the patio with the room was not private at all, but on a busy walkway used constantly by staff and guests.
The bathroom facilities were poor. A small bath with a shower attachment, however no hook or fixing on the wall for this. So we had to stand on a small slippery bath surface while holding shower attachment - not very safe!
Staff were pleasant and polite but we noticed very few staff smiled much at all, with the exception of pool staff Oscar and Andrea who were very friendly and helpful.
The restaurant apparently has a good reputation and the A La Carte menu looked very nice,however for a week's half board stay the evening meal was a bit disappointing and service not consistent. Service to A La Carte customers was however very attentive!
Snacks available at lunch time very limited for a hotel like this, lunch in town much more choice and better value.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms below restaurant terrcce are noisy, although has a lake view, patio with this roo...

This is probably the best hotel in Bellagio. Having said that I have two suggestions. First, do a massive upgrade on the quality and number of bed pillows and second, upgrade the chaises on the room balcony to something that has good quality cushions.

The other suggestion to travelers is to request a quality room with a lake view. The lake and the view is to die for so a room overlooking the roadway is going to take some of the luster off.

Last but not least, there are a few good restaurants in Bellagio but we tried the hotel restaurant and it was excellent. The food, the service and the view were unsurpassed in our opinion.

I'd stay here in a heartbeat but if the hotel manager is reading this - my suggestions above would put you head and shoulders ahead of anyone...
