“Very nice hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

The hotel is lovely, for its view (amazing), the look, the care for detail. The position is perhaps not the best one: the hotel lies directly on a narrow street where it is not possible to park, thus parking is only possible in the little space in front of the hotel (which does not have a proper garage). The town is at 10 minutes walking distance, but the narrow street mentioned before (with no pavement for pedestrians) is the only way to reach it during the night (better to take the car, as there is some parking space after the "Lido"); during the day it is possible to walk to the town through the Gardens "melzi d'Eril" at a price of 8 euro: a bit expensive, but worth it. In turn, Inside the hotel is an excellent restaurant (apparently one of the best in the area), and quite close (definitely closer to the hotel than to the town) is the only freely accessible lake river, in case you want to swim or sunbathe: on the contrary, the "Lido Silvio", which is the fancy beach belonging to the same owner of the hotel (and accessible at a price to pay) is closer to the town than to the hotel. To sum up: perfect for those who want to relax and plan to have a (romantic and) relaxing experience with little walking: just few steps to the restaurant, and some steps more to the free beach. For any other movement, it is strongly advised to use the car.

Room Tip: If you are interested in the view on the lake, take care that the room has a balcony and that it is...

My husband and I recently stayed at Hotel Silvio and couldn't have been happier with our choice. From the moment we were greeted at the reception by the most wonderful Monica who then showed us to our room which had the most spectacular view. We were blown away!
The hotel and restaurant were always accommodating where we ate in at the restaurant one evening and then had room service another evening (as the view from our balcony was second to none).
Breakfast was excellent as was the coffee.
My parents are now in Bellagio (unfortunately they booked their accommodation before us and are not staying at Silvios) and we wanted to treat them to a really nice dinner and Monica was extremely helpful and arranged it all for me so that we could treat them - they had a wonderful time and thought the food and views were amazing.
The walk through the park is so lovely and well worth it - it is not strenuous at all.
My husband and I will definitely go back to Bellagio and stay at Silvio's again.
Thanks for a wonderful holiday.

We have just stayed 3 nights in Como. Hotel Silvio is a little family run gem. The room was fine, with good air con & balcony but what made it so special was the atmosphere. We ended up eating there all 3 nights. This was largely as the hotel is a bit of a way out of Bellagio (& I can't walk very far at present). In the mornings we used the free shuttle provided by the hotel but unfortunately they couldn't accommodate a return journey and taxis are hard too come by. The other option is to buy a tourist train ticket which is rather steep (€9) which goes past the hotel. To be fair the restaurant at Silvios is one of the best in Bellagio and we had 3 great meals. The highlight was the white lake fish with buttered sage rice, which will be one of my life time favourites! Service is great too. A lovely touch at breakfast is a bowl of oranges delivered to your table for you to juice in the machine. Another bonus of staying here is free entry to the private beach, the only one in Bellgio which is man made but a good place to relax/have a dip from. Don't hestiate to stay or eat here!

We recently stayed at Hotel Silvio and had a wonderful time. The hotel is clean and modern. Our room had a terrific view of Lake Como. The staff was most accomadating and quick to respond to our needs. The breakfast was excellent and well organized.
We had dinner in the restauant one evening which was in an outdoor setting. The food was excellent.

We rented this Albergo at the last moment before leaving home for our month long trip in France and Italy. When we arrived at Hotel Silvio we were just amazed. It was perfect in every way. The staff was wonderful and friendly. We had dinner in the dining room with a view on the lake. The food was fantastic. The hotel is walking distance to the centre of town. We were offered a shuttle service to and from the hotel. All in all a wonderful stay in Bellagio.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view.

We had prebooked 3 days at Hotel Silvio for July 2013. We were given a room on the top floor with a very low sloping ceiling. We had to bend for every step we took in the room. E.g. walking around the centrally positioned bed, getting in or out of the couch andentering the bathroom. But we still hit our heads at time!! This was not good for your back either.
