“Nice hotel in Bellagio where the cheapest is still expensive.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2011 via mobile

Nice "cheap' hotel in Bellagio where the cheapest is still expensive. Old building and fornitures but clean and with everything working. The position on the square make it noisy in the night for people talking under your window. No elevator.

Yes, it's old fashioned, but you cannot beat the location & the staff were amazingly friendly.
It isn't cheap, but it was significantly cheaper than anywhere else in town. What makes it unbeatable is the first floor terrace overlooking the lake - heaven! The staff even gave us glasses and an ice bucket so we could enjoy our own champagne with the glorious view - you won't get that anywhere else in town! Would definitely stay here again if I'm lucky enough to get back to beautiful Bellagio.

DO NOT stay here!!! There are other hotels in Bellagio to stay at. This one had holes in the sheets, mold in the bathroom, the worst bed I've ever slept on. TERRIBLE. Plus all of that we had items stolen from our rooms - sweaters and mascara. Their only plus is the view from the lake side.

I bet this place was incredible back 50 years ago. As it stands, it doesn't seem like it's been updated much since then. It's like Motel 6 housed in an pre-war art deco villa. On the plus side, it's smack in the middle of town, reasonably priced, clean, and the on-site restaurant is quite good. On the minus side, it feels a bit neglected, and the only hotel staff to be found are the restaurant waiters.

This is very expensive for a one star hotel and the room and bathroom were really quite shabby but the location was absolutely superb. We booked a lake view room and we quite honestly had just about the best view/balcony in town. Inevitably any stay in Bellagio is going to be expensive and this is no exception but if you value the location above the hotel facilities then we thoroughly recommend it. The associated restaurant is also expensive but it offers a 10% discount to guests and the food was absolutely superb. Unreservedly recommend both but don't expect four star trimmings

The hotel is easy to find....we got the ferry up from Lecco (slow boat takes 1.5hrs ) and the jetty was directly opposite the hotel which was great having flown into Bergamo that morning.

Paid extra for junior suite - big room with a double and a single bed in it.
Great bathroom with steam bath with small balcony - no lake view.
Art work on the walls 'very interesting' and slightly outdated.
Check in was effecient and imformative.
We ate in the restaurant that night (10% discount for residents) - had to remind them to take the discount off. Food was nice but not outstanding. Service was a little slow and badly managed. Breakfast was enough to break the fast but not to set you up for the day. Very nice coffee!! If you had a room at the front of the hotel, the views are lovely and there are some lovely shops around - it is a tourist trap so prices are inflated.
