Stay here! For 2 star prices you get 1.) a stunningly spectacular view from your room of all three legs of Lake Como formed by the Bellagio peninsula--Swiss Alps in the background and Italian Alps on both sides; 2.) quiet, 3.) outstanding family style attention from owners Carlo and his mother Piera, and 4.) easy access to the town of Bellagio below and the high points of the Bellagio peninsula above. Plus the food in the hotel restaurant is excellent. I've visited twice, first with my wife in March, second with a friend in August, and can't wait to return. On the second trip, we used the hotel as a launching pad for cycling in the mountains around Lake Como. The hotel is now stocking good quality bikes for this purpose that can be rented on site, although they will need to upgrade to higher end bikes for the serious cyclist attempting the very steep grades in the area. The hotel itself is located on a 14% grade portion of the famous Ghisallo climb, which is used frequently in professional cycling competitions such as the Giro d'Italia and the Tour of Lombardy, and summits at the Museum of Italian Cycling and the shrine of the Madonna del Ghisallo, confirmed by Pope Pius XII as the patroness of cyclists. The shrine contains a small cycling museum with photos and artifacts from the sport, as well as an eternal flame for cyclists who have died. Not interested in cycling? Bring some books and read from the hotel patio located on an escarpment overlooking the lake while being served your favorite drinks with hors d'oeuvres and serenaded by roosters and donkeys; or shop/dine in Bellagio; or ferry from Bellagio to explore the charming towns dotting the lake; or take in night life in Como. The cherry on top is the warm hospitality of Carlo and Piera, who can't do enough to make guests feel comfortable. There is shuttle service 2 km into Bellagio, and ample parking very close to town.
