I've been staying at the Metropole for the last 25 years and have seen many changes. And they've all been good, mostly. The only thing that I am not happy with is that 25 years ago you had your cappuchino with 2 pots, one espresso and one steamed milk. Now it is out of a machine. I won't even tell you my room because I email Martina or Michela and ask when it is available. Only then do I make my airline reservations. The hotel has been beautifully redone in the last few years. My lakefront room (no hint) is very comfortable and I finally did see the rooftop sun area. Bellagio is a lovely little town, with cute little shops, good restaurants. The Carillon has the best pizza ever and the restaurant at the top of the stairs that I can't remember is very good. Someone said that service was bad and the only place that we encountered bad service was in the restaurant. The ladies at the desk, Martina and Michela couldn't be more pleasant. The housekeeping staff is also very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast, other than the coffee, and it has gotten better this year, is very good. Everything you could possibly ask for. It is pretty pricey, but in Bellagio I would never stay any other place.
Our most favorite restaurant, and it is not in Bellagio but in Cernobbio, in back of Harry's bar, is the Trattoria del Vapore. We found that we could take the ferry across to Cadenabbia and take a local bus to Cernobbio. It is a real trip. Last time on the way home the bus was so packed with school children that my husband was almost out the door, but it was fun.
Hotel Metropole and staff. I LOVE YOU.
