I wanted to stay in Bellagio on this trip to Lake Como, and I chose this hotel due to the favorable reviews on Tripadvisor. I was not disappointed! I was only here for one night, and I really lucked out, as I was given a walk-out terraced room, with 2 lounge chairs and table facing the lake. I liked my room location so much that I tried to stay a second night, but they would have to move me to a room without a lake view, and I decided that I would move to my next location in Lugano.
My room itself was very average and basic, but the bathroom and bedroom both had walk-out french doors onto the terrace, which made all the difference. I felt like I was in my own private lake house. The room was also amazingly affordable.
The location is perfect and within walking distance to the entire town, which is picture perfect. The shopping is fantastic, with many boutique shops, and a locals feel overall. I will make sure I can stay longer next time, and I will definitely request the same room that I enjoyed on this trip.
