Our side view window was really a great view and all that we needed since we traveled much of the day during our stay. Our welcome was friendly and sincere. We arrived from Como by hydrofoil and the walk was minimal from the ferry to the hotel entrance. The room was clean and the bath was large. We had a tub / shower combination however, sitting in the tub is not very comfortable. Hot water. The room was nicer than we anticipated. Seemed to have been recently updated. We visited Villa Balbianello and Villa Carlotta in one day. Loved them both. Had lunch on the lakeside in Lenno. We took the little motorboat (when you exit the ferry you walk to the left and the other side of the lake to get to the small boat) to the entrance of Balbianello for 6E which included the return ride. Then reboarded the ferry to Tremezzo to visit Villa Carlotta. Although the ferry dropped us at a convenient spot the return ferry was directly across from the Carlotta. We had dinner at the Grotto just up the hill from the entrance to the Hotel Metropole. Very nice people and good food. The travel agency up the hill from the ferry landing helped us with our train tickets for the remainder of our trip. The breakfast buffet was more than enough and the view on the lake in the breakfast room was a plus! The morning we left the porter allowed us to enter the breakfast room a little early so that we could have something to eat before they opened. We took the car ferry from Bellagio to Varenna to take the train to Milan. The walk up the hill was not difficult for us even with our luggage(carry on suitcase and tote). If it were raining it might have been unpleasant but we had a beautiful sunny morning. I researched TripAdvisor all last winter for our trip and all the advice I found truly helped to make our trip so much easier. Our only regret was that we did not allow more time in this beautiful location. Our visit was really a great welcome to Italy for us.
