“Room with a view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2009

After spending some considerable time looking for an affordable 1 night stay in Bellagio, I decided on this hotel. Being on Lake Como, all hotels in Bellagio are relatively expensive, however the Hotel Bellagio did seem better value than most.

On arrival we went up to our room which was by no means large but was perfectly ideal for 1 night. The views however from the room were spectacular and worth the small addittional cost for a lake view.

Staff were friendly and helpful and gave us an excellent tip for a restaurant. The Trattoria San Giacomo in the next street and I would highly recommend it for fabulous well priced food

Did not spend much time in the hotel but was more than satisfactory for 1 night as was the standard european buffet breakfast

I would highly recommend this hotel especailly for its location and wonderful views

We came to Bellagio to check out the area before deciding to marry in Lake Como in 2008. Having never been, we were delighted with Bellagio itself, as its so picturesque.

The hotel is fairly bland but good for a base. Be aware that it is up a huge flight of steps which was not a problem for us, but for older people I can see this being a struggle.

The staff were friendly and the rooms were good. Clean, although not very large but we did have a great view of the Lake.

If you are NOT planning on spending a huge amount of time in your hotel, then I would definitely recommend booking here. It is clean and very basic which is what you would need. (Beds are very uncomfortable - hard)!

Things to be aware of when visiting Bellagio is that there is not many places you can sit (in a bikini) and soak up the sun, so if you are looking for that type of holiday, book a different hotel, something that has a pool or at least a balcony or terrace area.

In the mornings, the ferries start working at 6am and you can hear them all as soon as it starts. I loved seeing this as I am an early riser, however, if you like to sleep late, another reason to perhaps not pick Bellagio to stay in.

Bellagio itself has lots of restaurants and bars which are fantastic! And I do mean that. One place called "Far Out" was our favourite and we ate there 3 times!

It is a beauiful area, but somewhere I would only stay for a couple of days before visiting somewhere else in Como for a more relaxed stay...Bellagio is the centre of most of the ferries coming directly from Como and Varenna.

Would recommend you staying in Varenna as its simply stunning, also Lenno too!!!

Overall I would recommend this hotel for a first time stay, who wants a basic base to do site see from.

My wife and I spent 5 wonderful days at the Hotel Bellagio. Our room had a lack view which is stunning. The hotel staff was very helpful and the room was very nice.

I would recommend this hotel if you ever get a chance to go to Bellagio.

This was a nice small, clean hotel. The breakfast was good, they have a nice terrace to enjoy it outside in summertime. Location was great, just a few steps from the main street. We travelled with my mother in law and got a room with an additional bed, which was not very comfy, but it was only for one night. Room was nicely decorated, bright and clean. They have an agreement with a club facility to use their pool and they have a shuttle to take you there, which is about 10 minutes away. The pool was full of kids running around, and it was packed, not exactly what we had pictured. We were lucky to find a place to seat. We would not recommend this pool if your intention is to relax or to swim.

We stayed at Hotel bellagio for two nights and loved it. There are a steep set of stairs to reach the hotel from the ferry, but then Bellagio is full of steep stair ways. The views over lake Como are amazing so it is worth asking for lake view room. Rooms are big enough and very clean. Breakfast is included and adequate.The staff were very helpful with any request. We had a great stay and would stay there again.

We really enjoyed our stay in Hotel Bellagio. The rooms were really nicely decorated and the view from our balcony was fantastic. We had a room on one of the upper floors, with views across the lake. The bathroom was very modern, clean, the hotel had a really nice, light and positive feel to it. You do need to climb up the stairs to get to the hotel, but this is not that difficult - unless you have lots of very heavy luggage (which was fortunately not our case).
There was not a very large selection of foods for breakfast, it was mainly some cereal, white rolls and pastries, but that is quite typical for Italy. The coffee, of course, was very good - and very strong.
Overall we had a great experience and would defiinitely return to this hotel again.

OK - so if you are unable to carry your luggage up a flight of stone steps forget this hotel and move on :) If you can please read on.

We had a room on the top floor with full lake views, plasma tv, electric windows that folded all the way down to give a complete open room feel, electric blinds so you could welcome the view on a morning without getting out of bed (having a bad back from carrying luggage!).....this place was so wonderful my wife got up to go to the bathroom in the night and ended up returning with her camera to take a pic out of the bathroom window of all the roof tops.

ALL OF THIS FOR 160EUROS per night. I stayed in two hotels on this trip to Europe that are considered world leaders (Badrutts Palace - San Moritz & San Clemente Palace in Venice) but neither came close to leaving the feeling this place did. The staff were not overly helpful, you carried your own luggage and breakfast was average (but the money you save staying here can be put towards breakfast out!). But try and get a clean modern room in Bellagio for this money with stunning lake views is almost a dream - we did not want to leave. Simply stunning.
