We stayed for 10 nights at the Hotel Metropole in July, and had an amazing holiday.
Bellagio is the most perfect place on Lake Como, and the Metropole has the perfect spot in Bellagio. Straight out of the doors and into the hub of it all.
We had a room with a side lake view, which we looked out to from the Juliette balcony - still a beautiful view, even from the side. Our room was well furnished, nicely decorated and of ample size. Bathroom was roomy and the shower excellent. The toiletries were a nice added touch.
The tea/coffee making facilities and mini bar/fridge are an excellent idea, not something you would normally find in a 3 star hotel.
Breakfast is good. Plenty of choice to suit any taste. The cake was a particular favourite!
The roof top terrace is fab. Plenty of sunbeds/loungers/chairs. Complimentary towels are also a nice touch. A great place to relax after a busy day exploring.
An excellent hotel, would return tomorrow if we could!
Get the bus to Como and the slow ferry back to Bellagio - wonderful scenery.
For the BEST ice-cream in Bellagio, try GELATERIA DEL BORGO, on Via Garibaldi - it's AMAZING!
For a fab evening meal, try L'ANTICO POZZO RESTAURANT - lovely pizza and the best Lasagne, very reasonably priced.
