“Very nice place indeed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2011

The hotel mixes an old building and newer accomodation. Actually I prefer the old one, the new one has bigger room but not much sound proofing. It is a familly owned place and the owner are charming and always ready to help.
Very familly friendly
A bit too far away to walk to the center of Bellagio. However, it's only a 6 hours round trip to Monte St Primo (1800 meters I believe?) and while my wife goes shopping I go mountaineering. Great combination.
We have been there 3 times and may go again...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2011

We stayed at Il Perlo during the first two nights of our honeymoon, and we were astounded with the few. We sprung for the "superior lake view," only $20 more per night, and our terrace opened out into a 270-degree view of Lake Como and the Alps. We also had a side view over the western part of the lake. The hotel was clean, modern, had cheap wifi, and breakfast was typical European hotel fare but satisfying nonetheless. Concierge was also very nice and helpful. Only qualm was the shower - there is a movable nozzle in the tub, but no curtain, so it's pretty impossible to take a standing shower. I know this isn't uncommon for European hotels, but it's the only thing that prevented us from giving 5 stars. We would definitely stay there again, in a heartbeat, and will be recommending it to anyone that is traveling to Bellagio.

We spent the last two days of our trip here and it was just what we needed. We arrived late in the afternoon on a Sunday, and were informed that it would be difficult to go into town for lunch (as it would be very busy). However, they made up a big salad for us, which we shared on the terrace. Very refreshing -- and the views are just amazing. Our room was nice and large and we could hear a stream running below in the hills. Very easy to get from the hotel into town. Breakfast was simple, but very nice and the staff couldn't be more pleasant and helpful. Be advised, however, if you are a tall person, or a bit .... bigger -- the shower is quite small. No room for shampoo or soap (my husband and I assisted each other - the one outside the shower would exchange soap, etc with the one inside the shower). If you're traveling on your own, you will need to be creative. But overall, great place to stay!

Best lake views I've seen and easy to see the sights with this as a home base. Get a lake view room and ask for a large bathroom/shower. If you stay three nights, you can see all major sights on the lake with a decent pace. Don't bother staying in Como longer than a walk through the doumo. Bellagio really is the best city on the lake due to it's accessibility to all the sights via ferries. Also, Il Perlo has a car that will pick you up and drop you off in Bellagio. €1 per person at at three scheduled times each day. Or €2 per person any any time you request, call from town and they will pick you up.

My wife and I live in the Boston area and have traveled to many parts of the world as part of our work. We have a special affection for Il Perlo and how Piero and Carlo have treated us. They've made us feel as if we are part of their extended family. My son and daughter have also visited, and In mid-April of 2010 my wife Shirley brought her two sisters, Nancy and Lois to see for themselves this magical place. The view of Lake Como, the Alps and Bellagio from above the town is always in our memories, but it is Piera and Carlo whose kindness has touched us and made us want to return and be guests in their restful and beautiful spot. I hope we can get back again someday soon. Take a look at their website for a sense of the view: http://www.ilperlo.com/en

Room Tip: Ask Peira about rooms with mountain view from bath

The hotel is in very nice location. specially if you have a car. The view is amazing!!! The owners was nice. Didnt charge me for using internet and printing. If you have questions or you want info about town - you will get it in very good english. Probably I was expecting the breakfast bit more better, but this is two star hotel ( I would give them 3 stars as a minimum).
The price for room worth it!

We chose this hotel from this website, and were absolutely delighted. The view from our balcony must rank up there among the most beautiful in the world. The establishment is owned and run by Carlo and his mother Piera, who made us feel welcome from the start. Nothing was too much trouble. Aside from the excellent buffet breakfast, which was included, we ended up eating Piera's tasty lesagne every evening, which she kindly brought up to the room so we could enjoy it on the balcony. A shuttle service to the old town is provided for a small fee. At the end of our stay, which we extended by two days, it felt like leaving old friends behind. We heartily recommend this accommodation to all who want old style hospitality together with a million dollar view.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the northeastern side
