“Pretty good place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

Views, Amazing! We stayed in a mountain view standard room and it's on the small side, newish bathroom, but smallest shower I have ever seen in my life. You can't even bend your elbow without touching the fitted shower curtain that's used like a sliding door. Breakfast is fabulous, lots of variety and there are always baked goods from their own kitchen. Staff are very helpful and friendly. They have and free shuttle available a few times a day to take you down to Bellagio, or else you can pay 2 euro for a lift on demand. My only criticism is the smell in the hotel you encounter when you enter the lobby each day. They have 2 dogs that live inside during the day so this may be the source of the smell. We are not dog people so that's why we found it a bit confronting each time. You don't smell it in the breakfast area or in the rooms though. Overall great little Hotel!

Room Tip: If a teeny tiny shower doesn't bother you, the standard mountain view room is very good value

My husband and I had reserved a room at the Hotel Il Perlo Panorama based on the overwhelming pleasure guests seemed to take in the terrace overlooking the mountains and lake. I do not overstate it when I say that the reality far exceeded my expectation with regard to this view. It was absolutely breathtaking! My husband and I were both tremendously pleased with the service as well. Carlo is an excellent host who, while catering to a very full house in the form of a large party of cyclists and assorted guests, and in spite of having to contend with the complications of a power outage caused by a severe rain storm, remained gracious, good-natured, and resourceful enough to provide us with a warm welcome, surprisingly cold beer, and a delicious and hearty hot meal. The young woman who works as cook and server, and whose name I've sadly forgotten, deserves a mention too. Her efforts were quite heroic, yet she remained composed, pleasant and humble through it all. The lake and mountains proved quite dramatic in the midst of the lightning storm, but the true beauty of the panorama revealed itself once the clouds parted. Incredible! The single element which prevents me from assigning Il Perlo Panorama the full five-star rating is the quality of the room. Ours was very clean and certainly adequate, but definitely in need of an update. Nevertheless, I recommend this hotel without reservation, and would return without hesitation.

We stayed here for 2 days of a 12 day tour of Central/Northern Italy. It was by far the best accommodation and location.

Evening meal delicious on the patio overlooking the lakes. My vegetarian daughter was surprised to find the vegetarian pizza had courgettes on it, a vegetable she hates so that ruined her meal but it was not the hotels fault and it was a lovely pizza all the same. Also the mixed salad had chopped ham on it, so watch out if you're vegetarian too! Breakfast was fantastic, buffet style with boiled eggs and hot chocolate and many more things to chose from than other hotels we stayed at.

The family rooms are more like apartments, very spacious and ours being split level with 2 single beds downstairs and a double bed at entrance level. The view from both the room windows was spectacular seeing both Lake Como and Lecco. The owner was very helpful and told us the best places to park our hire car, even where the one-and-only public beach on the lake was. Swimming in a fresh-water lake is an experience I will not forget either!

I will return another year, this time staying for a week and maybe use the town's shuttle service to get there from Linate airport as the lake road to get there was a bit scary at times for someone not used to left-hand drive, very narrow in places.

Room Tip: room with lake view if you can get one! book in advance.

After getting out of the cruise coming from Corsica and 4 hours driving up half way to come back home, we stopped at Bellagio. It was late in the evening and it was dark already. We could feel on the way around the Coma lake that the lake was on our right and the mountain on ou left, but that all. After arriving at the hotel, we were welcomed by the owner and we got our room. In the morning, we went to the beakfast and it was unbelleivable....The most beautifull vue I've ever seen, a very nice terrasse where you can eat and have a 360° wonderfull panoramic. The service was excellent, the reception was very friendly and the room was exactly what we wanted. we were 4 and we got a room with a king size bed and 2 more signle beds for the childrens.

It's hard to believe this hotel only received a 2 star rating. We were so pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The parking was free, the reception was warm and the room was ideal. We have a four year old and asked for a bed for him - we received just that. The service from everyone at the hotel was superb. The food was delicious (dinner and breakfast) and the hospitality was genuine. Of course, the view from the seating area/dinner area was truly spectacular - I don't know what could match.......We would definitely recommend to anyone and everyone.

We found this charming hotel on TripAdvisor and was positively surprised by the friendly reception that we received along with the charming and welcoming atmosphere of the hotel. The views are excellent and seems to be either of the mountains or of the Como lake; providing an nice view of the two "legs" of the lake, surprisingly to us it was rather difficult to spot Bellagio itself from the hotel. If you are OK staying a bit outside the city center (which is a short drive away with relatively easy parking), I'd highly recommend this place for a nice and beautiful getaway.

The owners were so helpful and attentive to our every need. The view from our rooms was stunning. Take advantage of the shuttle to town or walk to San Giovanni to the ferry. Wish we would have stayed longer. Trying to find a way to get back some day.
