“Worst breakfast I ever had”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

This place is not worth staying at despite the great view. Everything about the place is below average to poor. A shower that could win an award for the smallest shower ever. Impossible to wash your hair because you can't bend your arms. Better hope your not staying on the 1st, 2nd or 3rd floor because you will have to carry your heavy luggage up there all by yourself. The breakfast is the worst I have ever had. There is plenty to choose from but everything tasted horrible. The whole hotel and everything in it is getting run down and old. Big regret for booking my holiday here.

the view from this place says it all really!
located about 5 minutes drive up the hill from the main centre of Bellagio, it is with a picturesque and quiet location.
The B&B is run by a mother and son, and they are very friendly, welcoming and helpful.
The rooftop terrace for a drink is a must for the view.
The room we stayed in, the junior suite which isn't attached to the main building, has a balcony also. This room has bedding for four (it is a bit of a squash but not too bad). However there are no tea or coffee making facilities ( this can be ordered in the coffee shop) but is a bit inconvenient.
The breakfast which is included is great, including freshly made croissants.
We have already recommended this place to family visiting Bellagio, we don't think they will be disappointed!

Dear Sir/Madame, thanks a lot for this wonderful review.
Your comments are a real suggestion for us and you confirmed something we are thinking about:
adding some coffe and tea facilities in the rooms...
We will surely do for next year!
Still your review makes me leave the note for everybody: we are a 2 star family run hotel, please do not forget this!
Hotel is more a home hosting rather than a Classical fancy and big hotel.

Thanks a lot and hope to welcome you back here in the future!
Carlo

Loved the large room with a balcony and marvelous view over Bellagio, Lake Como and the south Alps. Staff was very helpful, the breakfast was OK, and the simple evening pasta buffet actually quite nice. Definitely a good place to stay if you are heading to Bellagio, rather than staying in the expensive hotels down in the village with limited views.

Room Tip: The rooms with a view are definitely worth the extra price.

The view from this place was insanely beautiful. I've never been so taken away by anything like it. There are no words to describe the feeling of astonishment each time you wake up in the morning and see that view just outside your window. The room was extremely clean. The owners were pleasant and the breakfast was a nice bonus. Of all the places we saw in the area, Il Perlo had the best location in terms of view and accessibility to the center of town - just 5 minutes by car. Plus, they provide free parking. Bellagio is the best part of town to stay in on Lake Como. Don't waste your time anywhere else.

Whilst the view at II Perlo Panoramico is unquestionably good, this is it's only selling point.
The interior decor is ugly and distasteful with a great deal of unnecessary wiring and sockets in the room. The breakfast was very mediocre in quality and this was not helped by the unenticing presentation. Although the staff were friendly this establishment could be so much better with more thought and care.
What is also not mentioned is that the hotel is positioned next to a road which although is seemingly quiet it is actually quite a busy and noisy road, this is exacerbated by the having a 'Garden' side room which has no view. Although the staff were friendly this establishment could be so much better with more thought and care.
In conclusion not to be recommended.

Dear Sir, we are so sorry you had a bad experience at the Hotel. From what you wrote about the room you chose on booking it looks like you would have preferred having a lake view room, but at the time of booking it was not possible.... I would love to welcome you back here in a lake view room: I promise you a special rate for that... I am pretty sure this would make you post a better review.
I do anyway thank you for all your all comments: they are always very important to help us getting better

The staff here are so helpful, the guy on reception arranged for us to be picked up and dropped off for free by a local restaurant even though they offer food themselves at the hotel. The view from the room was magnificent, we had room 12 on the 2nd floor corner. Il Perlo Panorama really is an apt description. If you can, have breakfast outside overlooking the lake, you probably wont get a better view! The rooms could do with a bit of sprucing up and some new towels but apart from that will definately be coming back!

The views are nice, but location does require a car. The rooms are not great - quite smelly when we first got in, but that was solved by keeping the windows open. Could use a refurbishment. The shower pressure was poor. Most importantly: no AC. We should have known ahead of time, but didn't realize. Difficult to keep windows open, as right next to the road, which is hilly and winding, which means quite a bit of road noise.

All-in-all, Bellagio is over-rated. Stay across the late at Mennagio, or further north. Much nicer and better accommodation selection.

Room Tip: Away from the road
