“Awesome Family Run Hotel with Heart!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We spent 5 nights at this lovely old hotel situated in the heart of the watrfront! The owners were amazing and always remembered us by name. Any requests were met with speed and kindness. Our room overlooked lake como with a little terrace. So clean! Room was not overly large but had good cupboard space, good sized bathroom with shower large enough for two! Hotel always smelt clean and fresh. We loved our stay here and would highly recommend if you like small, charming and personal! Thank you Hotel Metropole for making our trip wonderful! Ciao! Xox

Room Tip: Ask for a lakeview!

We had a wonderful time at the Metropole - we stayed in a good sized first floor room with a terrace overlooking the lake. Very clean and pleasant room with great views. Staff could not be more helpful, phoning for restaurants and taxis and giving advice about locality. Very friendly and prompt service for all requests - greeted and remembers as if we stayed there regularly! Hotel has lovely setting. Only one slight negative is the fact that the bed was hard! Must be the best located hotel in Bellagio. In response to previous review about tea or coffee facilities we just went to the bar dowstairs which looked over the lake and they remembered that I liked my tea so much they just checked that was what I wanted and started just bringing it over whenever we sat down! We hope to come back.

3 Star , 5/10 (8/10 view and location)
Old hotel partially refitted (Bathrooms). Some Balconies some just windows.
Only the road seperates you from the water and the restraunt where you have breakfast has excellent views. As do a fair percentage of the rooms.
Airconditioning , Minibar , Firm Kingsized bed but only average pillows.
No Tea / Coffee making facilities which was dissapointing.

The staff and the view make this hotel great. The hotel itself is average with large very clean rooms. The view onto Lake Como is remarkable and can be seen from the restaurant, cafe, and rooftop terrace. The complimentary breakfast was well worth it, but skip the restaurant for dinner as there are much better options in the town. The seasonal staff worked around the clock and were very helpful and friendly. We stayed here in mid-June and there were no crowds.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a full lake view!

What a great hotel. Great view and really lovely staff. Right in the heart of Bellagio. Very comfortable. Has a small balcony but was enough for the two of us. One of the very best stays in all our travels. The cafe and restaurant are both great. Arriving there in September we had just missed the summer crowds. Weather was still good-t-shirts and light pants. Would stay there again.

Room Tip: We had top left room and had views up and down the lake. The best room in the place but any top floo...

Stayed here for 3 nights last summer on our first visit to Lake Como. We took the boat from Como to Bellagio after getting the train to Como from Milan Malpensa airport. Hotel Metropole is situated right by the water in the middle of Bellagio near the boat jetty so we saw it the moment we arrived. Check-in was quick and staff were friendly. We'd requested a room overlooking the lake on a high floor and our request was fulfilled - we had a beautiful view of the lake and a balcony - worth paying the extra. Bathroom was clean with plenty of towels and toiletries. The hotel decor was perhaps slightly dated but this is often to be expected of a European hotel. Breakfast was brilliant as the restaurant terrace is right next to the water with breath-taking views of the lake and mountainous backdrop. There was a choice of eggs, bacon, bread and conserves, cereals, fresh fruit, yoghurt and everything you'd expect from a buffet breakfast. Location couldn't have been better as was only a short walk to all the shops and restaurants. Bellagio in July was really hot and we had a wonderful time.

The Metropole is very well situated on the water front and within the heart of Bellagio. Service was excellent and the food good, We enjoyed our lake facing balcony enormously as well as the open patio for sundowners. The staff were always friendly and efficient, The room, although pretty much the norm for much of Europe, was a liitle old fashioned and on the small side compared to what we are accustomed to in the southern hemisphere. The Metropole however definitely offers great value.

Room Tip: Lake facing rooms with juliet balconies are great to watch the sunset from.
