“Perfect for a slower pace & take an extra day just to relax & write & simply breathe in the beauty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

We've stayed several times at La Pergola. Our tastes include: the Beauty of Nature, Authenticity, Simplicity, Serenity & Wellness. La pergola is a 15' hike from the village and well worth it. We enjoy to eat well and the short walk is a pleasure after dinner or any time of day. It's stunning actually with those ancient steps. And the possibility to swim directly from the hotel (away from ferry boats) is a plus. The rooms are simple and the VIEWS spectacular.

Hope this review is helpful. And we would love to hear from you when you find simple jems! We love it because our Chalet in Wengen, Switzerland is such a place. Wengen is similar to Bellagio in that it dates back to the Belle Époque, also very well preserved. Let us know if you'd like info on Wengen or our chalet (available on occassion for rent. We screen our renters carefully) dating back to 1885, with unobstructed views, sunny southern exposure, private gardens, balcony, winter gardens & spectacular views. If you like La pergola, be sure to plan a skiing or hiking vacation in Wengen. We also loved Cinque Terra, especially staying in Monterosso al Mare.

We have just returned from an eight-night stay in the heart of Bellagio. On our second day whilst out exploring we came across La Pergola, a beautiful little hotel right on the edge of the lake. Such a beautiful location that we almost talked ourselves into returning to Bellagio later in the year and staying there. We wont be! We went through to the terrace just to sit and admire the view and have a coffee, the owner was extremely unfriendly, not a single word of greeting to us, and very hostile stares, and we felt really uncomfortable. However, we thought maybe she was just having a bad day, so decided to return a couple of days later to give it another try. Oh dear, we arrived about 10.30 and ordered our coffee and asked if we could have croissants. No, there aren't any! My husband then ordered a pannini, which very grudgingly arrived about 30 minutes later, (after reminding the pleasant little waitress that we were still waiting), by which time our coffee was cold. I have never actually come across such an unwelcoming place, everywhere else in Bellagio was the total opposite and we had a wonderful stay there.

Gorgeous lakeside location, go to sleep to the lapping of the waves! Oh and a wee bit of restaurant noise! Bellagio itself is a "few step-es" away (according to the very helpful young waitress) - make that 180 steps! We stayed 5 nights and loved it - very clean, spacious room, and breakfast on the terrace was a treat. To get there we hired a taxi which was an hour's trip with the great Claudio who gave us a commentary - so much easier than getting a bus from Linate, a train from Milan, a ferry from Varenna!

I was worried about this hotel after the horrible reviews about the service; I was pleasantly surprised. The people who run the hotel are not particularly friendly, but they were fine. The hotel is clean and the rooms are bigger than many in Europe. The price was excellent. Breakfast was minimal but enough.

The location is on the other side of town from the ferry landing, so it's quiet and away from the main drag. The negative of this is you must walk up and down a big hill every time you want to go into town - if you have problems with your knees or hips, it would be better to stay at one of the hotels closer to the ferry landing.

Room Tip: The lake view rooms are worth the extra money

The hotel itself was pretty good and in a great position though our room was very sparse & we had a tiny bathroom and no balcony that we had booked. But that was about the only good thing I could say about it. To me there was so many things not right BUT above all it was the attitude of the owners that has made the decision to say 'don't go.' No smiles, no welcome, no apologies, huffing & puffing if we dared asked a question & looks to kill! After 3 nights we were glad to go, which was a shame as it could be a fantastic place to stay as you are on the other side of peninsular from centre of Bellagio, it was so much quieter. It was only a 5-10 min walk over the hill to Bellagio.
I could mention many more things but really, we would have been happy enough if we had felt welcome. Also compared to other places we have stayed it was overpriced for what we
had, assuming because it was in Bellagio?
One more thing you need a taxi to the hotel, unless you would like to clamber up and over the hill and steps with suitcases. Would have been really helpful to be told that by the hotel before arriving as when you arrive in Bellagio you realise that there are very few 'taxis!' A few luxury cars are the taxis BUT very hard to find one!! We had to go into a hotel & plead for them to call one for us & we were just lucky there was one in town as they do day trips etc.
So if you don't mind very unfriendly hotel staff, go.

This is a family run restaurant/hotel located on the shores of Lake Como and the rooms look out across the lake, of course, a big plus. This is a converted convent and as such is an interesting building with lots of features. We didn't realise that there was a bar to the right of entrance where we could get coffee/drinks anytime we wished. No one explained the facilities to us. The restaurant is popular and very busy at week-ends so don't expect an early night and if you arrive at this time don't expect a car park. The staff and service is dour but adequate with the exception of the younger daughter who was friendly and helpful. A typical Italian breakfast is sufficiant. The restaurant is expensive. The walk into Bellagio requires a steep climb - but of course coming back is down hill. Recommended with above reservations.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony.

I've seen a lot of criticism of Pergola regarding the service. Perhaps these reviews are coming from people expecting five-star service from a two-star hotel. Unfair, I think.

We had a basic double bed overlooking the lake. The staff were attentive and breakfast can be taken lakeside. The buffet breakfast itself was pretty limited, though; You should get there early to ensure the better food items are still available.

Also, note that the hotel is quite a hike from the ferry station and town center. Not for folks who aren't able to carry luggage some distance uphill. Also leaves you wanting to only leave the hotel once a day to avoid lengthy round-trips.
