Have just returned from 3 nights at the wonderful Hotel Silvio in Bellagio. This is truly a gem. I have stayed here before and it has now been totally renovated making it a very elegant home away from home. The staff from Christian, the owner to Elena, Sylvia and Sabrina on reception were exceptional - nothing was too much trouble. The rooms although small offer stunning views of Lake Como. The restaurant is probably the best restaurant for seafood in Bellagio. The restaurant staff could not be more helpful and the prices are great. I was part of a small group and everyone in the group absolutely loved the hotel. It was the highlight of our tour. The hotel is only 10 minuies walk away from downtown Bellagio, but a million miles away from the noise and crowds. It's position on a hill affords one the best views of any of the hotels in town. This hotel is definitely worth visiting.
