You cannot beat the location of this hotel, it is right in the middle of things - it is on the water, the ferry terminal is right across from the hotel. There are many hotels on this strip - the Florence is steps away, next to that is the Serbollini, there are many hotel options.
Our check-in went smoothly, and we were satisifed with our room, however the decor could definitely use a boost, it is a bit tired for this class of hotel. Our friends who we were travelling with were not happy with their original room, there was a smell (like a sewage type of smell) coming into their room and they had quite a to-do before they were settled in to a room that had no problems(ended up being right next door to ours). It is really unfortunate to have to go through something like that. I think the hotel really needs to think about room renovation. Until they do this, I would hesitate to book again.
Having said that, we still had a good time. Our room had a balcony on the side, but we still had a nice view of the mountains and the lake. It was great to relax on that balcony with a drink, and feed the little bird that we got to know! We had a room on the top floor, we were above the noise of the street, and had a great view from the large terrace just down the hallway. A beautiful place to relax.
The dining was very nice - the dining room has windows facing the lake, and again, one can enjoy the view. We ate out a lot, but we did have a dinner and breakfasts at the hotel. All very good.
The hotel had a pool which is not on site, but can be accessed by a shuttle. Travelling with an 8 year old, I thought we would have used it at least once, but we were so busy travelling around the lovely Lake Como region that this did happen. It is a bit inconvenient to have to organize oneself to get there and back, when there are so many things to do.
Bellagio is a beautiful town, it is wonderful to stroll, and discover the terrific restaurants and shops. Spend some time on the ferries, and stop by the many towns around the lake. We had a wonderful visit in this area, the views are stunning, and there are lots of things to discover.
