“Impressive for the price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

We were pleasantly surprised when we entered the room to find it was better than the photos. The way they had taken the photos showed the room to be old, but it was actually a descent hotel and the price was cheap. The room was about 5 x 5 metres and had an American queen sized bed and a good sized clean bathroom. The bed was comfy enough. There was an armchair, a desk and a good sized wardrobe. The view from every room (except possibly the garden suites), was superb. It was about 2 or 3 kilometres from Bellagio and you can take a private mercedes taxi for 10 euro total. We walked to Bellagio town one day and it took less than an hour, but that was all down hill. Parking is free at the hotel. The breakfast is buffet style and is better than most low cost hotels in italy. The hotel owners are quite helpful. We ventured to como town as well as down the other sides of the massive lake but the Bellagio area was by far the prettiest. There are ferries and hydrofoils that go to just about everywhere on the lake and these were fun to catch. The nearest restaurant is in Bellagio and there are plenty to choose from, but don't just eat on the foreshore as the restaurants a few metres up the hillside are cheaper and have some tasty food. All in all for the price you pay and the Bellagio location this hotel stacks up well. It also has free wifi.

me and my mum have just returned from this hotel. we were on a special holiday to celebrate her 60th birthday. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful and the room was spacious and very clean. we had an incredible view from our balcony and also the view from the front veranda of the hotel is breathtaking. I would definitely recommend this hotel, eve though it is a distance out of the centre of bellagio it is worth it for the peace and quiet and the views. the shuttle service into town is reliable and walking into town is pleasant enough.

...the hotel itself is at most average. The breakfast was a joke. The room was okay, but after paying 100€ per night and reading all the super-positive reviews here we expected a better standard concerning cleanliness and interior. During our two weeks trip through Italy we have stayed in much better places for half the money. And if you can, don't book breakfast. however, the people are nice and helpful and the view from the terrace is amazing! therefore three out of five stars for this place!

My wife and I stayed at Il Perlo for one night on a trip to Bellagio. From the moment we set foot on the property, the owner (it's run by a mother and her son--she was apparently away while we were there) was super friendly and accommodating. This is a small, family-run hotel, instantly endearing (the son's adorable young daughter was playing around in the office and helped to check us in on the computer). There's something hard to describe about the ambiance, welcoming and informal, clean and inviting. We had reserved a suite for 120 euros that looked out over the lake, and I must concur with all the reviewers who have commented on the view: it's absolutely stunning, well worth the price of admission. The lobby area has all sorts of information, and the owner took time to explain how to get to the town, where to park, and so on. Our room had a small balcony on one side and doors on the front side the accessed a large terrace overlooking the lake, where we sat and sipped a nice prosecco (a mini-fridge would have helped a lot). The room was clean, the bed was very comfortable, and the windows had shutters that could be closed on the outside for more darkness in the morning. The bathroom was spotless, and we had a full-size soaker tub, so anyone who worries about the size of the showers (based on previous reviews) should just kick in the small amount for the larger room. In the evening, the owners serve a light dinner for a reasonable price, but if you want a full dinner, you'll need to go downtown (check out the hotel's shuttle service if you don't have a car). We were dying to try an amazing restaurant *up* the hill from the hotel, which serves farm-fresh food (much of it grown on their own property): Trattoria Baita Belvedere, but it was closed on Tuesdays. The free breakfast was terrific--lots of choices, and a great espresso maker. Free Internet and free parking as well. This is one of the most romantic spots imaginable. If you like glitzy Hilton-type hotels, Il Perlo may not be for you, but we'd take it any day over a five-star, slick, cold, formal hotel. In comparison, this hotel will stay in your memory forever.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front of the hotel looking straight out at Lake Como. Unbeatable views--like a...

Excellent location: avery lucky position well above the village of Bellagio. Peaceful, first of all! But the panorama form Perlo in "the" reason you will want to go and stay and come back again.
The hotel furniture is perfect, rooms are comfortable, people is friendly, they can very well communicate in English (and maybe also in some more languages...I wonder).

What an amazing venue for a romantic active stay. Carlo is an incredible host friendly helpful and engaging. If you want a really great cycle Carlo will rent you a bike and an ex pro to take you around the entire area. We went with Fabio (FABULOUS FABIO!!!) and we had a ride to remember forever with Fabio as our guide.... Got to go back there; thats all we know. Bellagio (the little town) is a short (but steep) walk away and is a great place to sight see and shop !!! Hotel Il Perlo is just an amazing place to stay. All round. oh and the room was spotless and so comfy much needed after the tough cycling and walking. thank you Carlo... so very much.

Room Tip: lake facing a must but mountain facing also awesome... :)
