“Nice hotel in a perfect little town.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2011

I wanted to stay in Bellagio on this trip to Lake Como, and I chose this hotel due to the favorable reviews on Tripadvisor. I was not disappointed! I was only here for one night, and I really lucked out, as I was given a walk-out terraced room, with 2 lounge chairs and table facing the lake. I liked my room location so much that I tried to stay a second night, but they would have to move me to a room without a lake view, and I decided that I would move to my next location in Lugano.

My room itself was very average and basic, but the bathroom and bedroom both had walk-out french doors onto the terrace, which made all the difference. I felt like I was in my own private lake house. The room was also amazingly affordable.

The location is perfect and within walking distance to the entire town, which is picture perfect. The shopping is fantastic, with many boutique shops, and a locals feel overall. I will make sure I can stay longer next time, and I will definitely request the same room that I enjoyed on this trip.

Room Tip: Ask for a terraced room or balcony room on the lake-side.

We had a lovely stay here. Important to get a full lake view room. Our room was small but perfectly formed, with a balcony on to the beautiful lake view and very good bathroom. Very good breakfast on the delightful terrace overlooking the lake. The staff were helpful. Dinner on the terrace good, but Bellagio is full of good places to eat! There is a nice sun roof which proved to be an asset

Room Tip: Ask for full lake view

This has to be the best place to stay in Bellagio. Just returned from a 6 night stay at the Hotel Metropole and it couldn't have been better. The position on the edge of the lake is superb. Pay a little bit more for a room on the lake with a balcony, the view you wake up to every morning is worth the extra. If you can get a room on the first floor with a large terrace, even better. It was great to watch the ferry come and go. The staff are very helpful and friendly with lots of advice. We arrived by car and were shown exactly where all the 24 hour free parking was. The free wifi throughout the hotel is an added bonus. The roof top sun terrace has the most amazing views and is a real sun trap. Breakfast is included in the room rate and is all you need, from fried egg and bacon to various breads hams and cheeses, along with fruit, cereals etc etc. This is a great place to stay, I would recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: Lake side rooms have view to die for !

Lovely hotel in picturesque setting, convenient for transport, dining and shopping. Good food, first rate, friendly, English speaking staff and clean, well appointed rooms. The best Italian hotel we have stayed in.

Room Tip: Superb lake views from the front of the hotel

Excellent hotel, superb location in the centre of beautiful Bellagio.

Three of us stayed 10 nights up to last Friday in Double Room with balcony plus Single Room which had double bed. Both rooms had plenty of space, comfortable big beds, big wardrobes, flatscreen TVs, and splendidly modern and spacious bathrooms.

Views were superb from our top floor rooms, and the spacious and well-fitted Roof Terrace was magic. Reception staff were efficient and helpful in all regards. Bar staff were most obliging and helpful throughout our stay : Kim is a gem. Terrace Restaurant overlooking Lake Como was exceptional, with excellent food at all our Dinners some of the best we tasted during our heavy-eating and well-lubricated stay – and each morning, we enjoyed one of the best European Buffet Breakfasts we have ever experienced. Maitre d’ Ivan was world class, mixing the right level of friendship with efficiency : decades of experience at top London restaurants including San Lorenzo shows.

Full marks all round – and the bill at the end of it all was correct to the Euro, and surprisingly economic for such 5-star Service and Quality in a 3-Star Hotel.

Well done, Hotel Metropole. We will be back !

Oh, and a hint. Don’t just arrive via Milan Malpensa like the crowd. Fly out to Zurich, catch the EuroCity EC6 Express to Chur, stay overnight – and then travel to Italy on the Bernina Express on one of the world’s most impressive and scenic rail lines.

Change at Tirano onto Italian Railways to Varenna, and then take the ferry for your final approach to Bellagio, dropping you right in front of Hotel Metropole. A memorable journey, to a memorable place and a memorable hotel.

We came with my daughter and her husband. They gave us both an extra room attached to our room which was great for suitcases and clothes. The dinners on the front balcony of the restaurant was great with the maitre D, Ivan, entertaining us with his quick wit.
The reception staff was always very helpful and friendly. If you cant afford the Serbelloni, this is an excellent choice with lovely views.Make sure to visit the towns on the lake by ferry. Barbanello is not open on a Monday and Wednesday.

The hotel was brilliant! The room we had was huge and lovely with a little balcony with a side view of the lake. The bathroom was a little small as was the shower, but it was still very good and very clean. The bed was 2 single mattress put together on one base and a little hard (but we found this is most hotels we stayed in for our honeymoon)

The staff were very friendly and helpful. We had breakfast included and it was excellent. Yummy, fresh and a wide variety to choose from. You also had a great view of the lake while enjoying our breakfast.

We would definitely stay there again. Great view, great hotel, great location.
