I was alittle worried booking this hotel after reading some of the previous reviews, but as a experienced traveler in Europe I have seen it all was knew I could handle the good the bad and the ugly...This was our first trip to Lake Como and after reading up on it I decided to stay on the "Peal of the Lake" Bellagio. One thing that I did not take in to consideration is that this is a popular tourist town on the lake so the restaurants were quite a bit more costly than those found in cities like Como. The nice thing about this little hotel is that a beautiful little breakfast is included each morning in their Restaurant. Speaking of restaurants, this Hotel is really a restaurants with 7 rooms for rent up stairs. We had 4 in our party so we rented the two lake view rooms on top. There were alot of stairs to climb to get there but well worth the climb. Also the lake view rooms are a must, why come all this way and not wake up to the sound of water each morning. I found the room to be lovely, it was simple, hard wood floors a comfy bed and yes I had the room with the wooden toilet seat that had been repaired, (batched, big deal...) Some one spending more time looking at that rather then the view, really? Anyway back to more important things, the employees the ones who also work in the restaurant where you enter from were most kind and helpful, even arranging a day trip to Switzerland for us. We loved our stay at this little gem and plan to return soon...

Room Tip: Lake view is a MUST

We made the booking for an apartment for our stay in LAKE COMO, BELLAGIO at Hotel Suisse via bookings.com

From the minute we got there the hospitality from the staff at Hotel Suisse was great, they made us feel very welcome. Our apartment was a one bedroom villa amongst the old town and pebbled steps. The villa had been updated and looked amazing the terrace was beautiful with views of Lake Como from our bedroom.

This really gave us a better understanding of how people live in the villas old & young and so peacefull amoungst each other.

The only thing to look out for, make sure if you get someone to carry your bags up to the villa you tip them well, they will ask for Muncha Muncha (which we believe means money/tip).

Brilliant loccation overlooking Lake Como and the boat stations. Reception in Restaurant - No Lift - not so good when you are on third floor (like we were) - great room with views - did not notice the 'Ants' till later - all over room - we did complain but they were full so could not move us (they did not seem to do anything to get rid either !!) - we did stay two nights so wasn't that bad. Staff very helpful (and amusing) - breakfast was OK.

Room Tip: Try not to get third floor - but get Lake View they are tremendous

The rooms at Hotel Suisse are fairly old fashioned and basic (no air-conditioning) although tastefully decorated and our bathroom was a good size. There are also no lifts but staff are more than willing to help with luggage. However, what it lacks in modernity it makes up for in ambience. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. We had a lakefront room with balcony on the second floor and the view was sensational. This hotel is right in the centre of Bellagio - a gorgeous little township. The ferry is almost at the door making it easy for sightseeing around Lake Como. Also memorable was the very attractive and modern restaurant downstairs with wine bottles lining the walls and the outside patio always beautifully set up with white linen tablecloths and fresh flowers. This restaurant is absolutely 5-star . The food was exceptional and the service impeccable. Be sure to make reservations for dinner - sensational!

We arrived on a holiday afternoon and were lucky to get any room at all. This is really a one-star hotel. From bare light bulbs to marginal cleanliness, it was just what you'd expect. It's one good feature is its location right on the water.

This is a nice hotel with decent rooms on the waterfront. The hostess was extremely helpful and very accommodating. The room was spacious and clean. The breakfast was fine, typical Italian continental. Our room with a view was a little misleading as it was back in the village up a few flight of stairs with only a sliver of a view of the water. Nice bathroom. A little pricey...but it is Bellagio.

This was the final stop on our 2 week vacation through Italy and it was our favorite place of all. My nieces & I loved the Hotel with its lakeside location and views to die for! We dined at the Hotel and it was a memorable experience too. Our room was spacious & quiet, except for the cooing doves outside our room.

Room Tip: We didn't have a view room, which would have been very nice, but the Hotel offers lots of "...
