“Breathtaking Bellagio”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

Arriving after a spectacular ferry trip, Bellagio is a village perfectly situated lakeside at the junction of all three legs of Lake Como, and the Hotel Silvio is the perfect place to stay. We had a well-appointed room with a private balcony overlooking the lake, where we enjoyed a spectacular sunset each day with a glass of red in hand. The restaurant was superb, starting with a welcoming Ciao and breakfast buffet each morning that was hard to beat. So much so that we found ourselves returning night after night to enjoy the evening's dazzling dining experience, and chef's recommendation. The village is an easy and picturesque walk lakeside, so it was great to leave the hassle of driving/parking behind and just enjoy all that Bellagio delivers: great local shopping, traditional italian coffee in the morning and Aperol Spritz & snacks in the afternoon at the many cafes and restaurants that line the shore. The staff at Hotel Silvio's were always friendly and helpful with any enquiry. What a spectacular introduction to the location!

Good food, good staff, great place to stay with a $$$$$ view of the Lake.Stayed for 3 nights, staff were very helpful and accommodating, food were all good for breakfast and other times. Just a little hot in the room since the fan broke and the aircon wasn't cool enough other wise it is a great place to stay. I plan to stay there again if I will be back.

We were two couples staying in this apartment which is in a perfect location overlooking the lake and across from the ferry terminal. The large terrace area had a magnificent view and was a great place to relax at the end of the day. There were lots of restaurants and shops up the many lane-ways nearby. The apartment was a good size but was sparsely furnished and could do with a little more to make it comfortable. Although our handover was quite rushed, staff at the Hotel Silvio were very responsive to any queries,

Spotlessy rooms, hotel & restaurant. Fabulous views from our room and great start in the morning with a superb breakfast. Helpful and friendly staff, both at the reception and at the restaurant downstairs. Free parking (a plus in Bellagio) Highly recommended !

enjoyed 2 nights at this hotel away from the town but within walking distance. Helpful staff & a very good breakfast buffet complete with your own fresh orange juice.If you phone the hotel when you arrive in Bellagio they will come & pick you up & also return you to the ferry terminal on departure although we weren't aware of this prior to our arrival. Restaurant dining at the hotel is expensive for what you get. Better eating places in Verenna.

Room Tip: So many beautiful views in & around Lake Como you don't really need to pay extra for a room...

Whilst the room was spotless, and the staff friendly, we were unfortunately left with a less than wonderful impression of the hotel.
Be warned!! If the temperature is less than 25 degrees outside, the air con is switched off- with no way of turning it on! To top it off, our ceiling fan was broken, so we could not use this. If we were to open the window, as previous posts have suggested, we were either kept awake from the noise of the road (although not busy, any vehicle noise was more than enough to wake us), or eaten alive from the mosquitoes. We had a very early start to the airport, made much less easy by having a sum total of 3 hours very restless, sticky sleep.
The position of the hotel is slightly out of the town- a walk through the gardens is beautiful, but costs €6 each a day. Other than that, you have to face a narrow road, with no path in places.
Overall, not a hotel we would return to. Disappointing.

We had enjoyed staying at Silvio's and beautiful Bellagio for a few years so it seemed the logical choice for my daughter's wedding when she became engaged. In conjunction with Lido, which they own as well, we created the most beautiful and special wedding imaginable. This was thanks to Christiane the owner of Silvio,his staff and the wonderful Manuele Beretta the manager at Lido. So many of the staff including Laura took such a personal interest in making the day incredible and every detail was perfect. They all made sure that every effort was made to make guests welcome and turn both venues into magical settings. We started with the ceremony at Lido overlooking the water and surrounded by sandy beach. Afterwards the staff whisked away the chairs and supplied a wonderful DJ for the reception. Dancing, drinks and canapés and then away by boat for dinner at Silvio's in the dining room with the most incredible view of Lake Como. After the wedding cake we all returned by boat to the Lido which was very beautifully set up for our champagne party with their Italian revival band getting everyone up dancing and celebrating not only the wedding but Italy and Lake Como. It was a day to remember. Most guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been invited to. Beautiful Bellagio gets a lot of credit for that but so do all who contributed to making it very special at Silvio's and Lido. They put their whole hearts into realising the vision we had of the wedding. We thank them with all our hearts.
