“The best little hotel on Lake Como”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2012

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.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms at the front of the hotel. They all have larger balconies than the rooms with side ba...

This lovely hotel deserves all of the rave reviews it gets. In an expensive town like Bellagio, it was a treat to find an affordably priced, family-run inn that was impeccably clean and well managed. The lake view from our room was delightful, the restaurant was excellent, and the 15-minute walk into town through the glorious Villa Melzi gardens was a real treat. What set Silvio apart, though, was its staff: Everyone went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that our stay was perfect. We received excellent, detailed advice on places to see on Lago di Como, which is truly the most beautiful of the Italian lakes. And Bellagio is exquisite -- the jewel in the crown. Would we return? In a heartbeat.

The service at this hotel is AMAZING! They helped us arrange several day activities, explained ferry schedules, and the restaurant service was also excellent. The only complaint my husband and I have is the room we got. We decided to save money by going with the cheapest room, one for two that doesn't have a lake view. The problem was the room is right above the kitchen so every night we could hear people doing dishes and talking in the kitchen until midnight. It was hot so we had to keep the window open which made the noise louder. The walls are really thin as well, and unfortunately there was a crying sick baby staying in the room next door that we had to listen to. Also we could hear people in the reception area talking in the mornings when we were trying to sleep in a little. Bottom line, I'd highly recommend this hotel but spring for the nicer room.

What a wonderful experience! Had three nights here while in Bellagio. The hotel is clean, fresh and the staff could not have been more helpful! Try to get the rooms on the right hand side of the building or the dearer front rooms. The view is worth it. Rates are extremely reasonable anyway. The restaurant is excellent. Wine selection is extensive and prices are cheap and again that view. 15minute walk to Bellagio central but keeps rates very reasonable. There is a shuttle for convenience if required.

Room Tip: Get a room at front (facing the lake) or on the right side as the build faces the water

We stayed at Hotel Silvio for three nights in April 2012, we ate in the hotel resturant on the first
night and the whole experience was so good that we did not eat anywhere else during our stay,
the food is excellent and the service is first class ,and the resturant is situated so that it has a
fantastic view across the lake.The hotel staff are really helpful and friendly,we will most certainly
go back again, our room was very clean and had a fabulous shower,we also had a lake view balcony. Nice!

Room Tip: The rooms above the resturant have the best views across the lake, but they are all good.

We stayed at Hotel Silvio last year and in need of a bit of down time we decided to pay another visit. We did toy with the idea of staying somewhere else or even in a different town but came to the conclusion that it was just a better idea to go back.
The hotel was as good as we remembered - comfortable, clean and with ultra friendly staff, plus the bonus of a good restaurant serving local dishes and a great value wine list. We stayed in a Suite with lake view then moved for our 3rd & 4th nights to a mini suite - a large room with a bath by the bed - not sure if I like that idea or not, as I like a bit of peace and quiet with my bath - but it was modern and very well done in any case.
The breakfast has improved greatly since last year - cold meat, cheeses & eggs, good cereal choice, great coffee, croissants and bread and the usual Italian choice of cakes plus the freshly squeezed orange juice - I sincerely hope that they do not bend to the wishes of international clients anymore than they have...I would hate to see pancakes and eggs & bacon on offer as this would be globalisation gone mad.
