Returned yesterday from a very enjoyable week's stay at the Hotel Metropole. Our lake view room was described as compact which indeed it was however it was perfectly adequate with comfortable beds, very quiet efficient aircon and a modern shower room and of course a lovely little balcony with breath taking views. We were on the 4th floor with easy access to the delightful roof terrace perfect for an afternoon rest. Breakfast on the terrace was good. We had dinner here one evening and with the resident discount of 15% not overly priced (by Bellagio standards that is!), the food was okay but not good enough to make us want to return. All staff were friendly and helpful.
We spent our week pottering around the lakeside towns and particularly liked Varenna. As suggested by others we took the hydrofoil to Como and meandered back on the slow boat. Como has a pleasant water front and a trip on the funicular is worth doing. In Bellagio suggest you take a trip with Luca on his beautiful mahogany speed boat to the Villa Balbianello (you will find Bellagio Water Taxis next door to the hotel). Also pick up a leaflet from the tourist office at the ferry station and try the walk around the Bellagio area, it takes you over to Pescallo which is a lovely spot and returns via the Villa Melzi gardens (a 3 day ticket is better value than one day and you don't have to use on consecutive days). Overall a great holiday in a good hotel in a beautiful part of the world
