“Basic Accomodation with great view”
Reviewed June 17, 2006

As other reviewers have said, the view from the hotel is stunning. The rooms are basic and fairly clean, although there were a number of ants in our room that we had to ask the cleaning staff to look after. The breakfast is quite good, however, there is a coffee machine only, not fresh made coffee as we were served in other B&B and family run hotels in Italy. The shower was very small - you could not move in it at all - it made showering very difficult!! For the Bellagio area, Il Perlo was very reasonably priced. I would consider it average value for what I paid. I would not stay at Il Perlo if I were to return to Bellagio (which hopefully I will, Bellagio is wonderful!). I would stay at a slightly higher standard and likely more expensive hotel or B&B.

Bellagio is a beautiful spot and Il Perlo is a quaint and charming inn/Bed and Breakfast. Lake Como is wonderful and from the terrace of the inn as well as from many of the guest rooms you can view the entire Lake. Our room had a shared walk out terrace on which you could sitt and look at the vista. Room & bath were comfortable and clean. Our bedroom had two comfortable loungue chairs so reading was not a problem. Breakfast room was comfortable and service was quite good.... Excellent homemade
preserves and flavored honey! Hotel staff was attentive. Having a car in this area might be helpful but we were able to manage quite well without one. Staff recommended several very good restaurants. We loved this area of Italy and we were more than pleased to stay and enjoy Il Perlo. Would like to visit again in the future.

My wife and I and two friends have just had 5 nights with the best view in town.

The hotel is 5 minutes out of town by car and walking is not reccommended while Italy still has Italian drivers (you need to experience this to understand what I mean) but the hotel runs a cheap shuttle service and will even do return trips to local restaurants.

The family who run Il Perlo are wonderfully helpful and have excellent English. Although they suggest that they only do B&B they do have a bar and can provide limited snack meals. Just as well because when you see the unbelievable view from their terrace you really don't feel like leaving it to go out.

At circa 100Euros and both easy to find and with free parking I can't see why anyone stays anywhere else.

Il Perlo is perched on a hill facing the town of Bellagio and Lake Como. The view was spectacular. The staff was extremely friendly and very helpful! The room was a little outdated, but was very clean and the bathrooms were newly renovated. We also had a private balcony which was great to have a bottle of wine and enjoy the view. We highly recommend Il Perlo!

Nice hotel with fabulous views of Lake Como. We were actually stunned when we saw the view from our room for the first time!

The proprietor was very nice, and helped us with our early checkout and driving directions to the Torino airport.

Breakfast was great - definitely take it on the terrace overlooking Lake Como!

Spent two nights here while touring the area during the day. Hotel is family run, well-kept, and offers a very good breakfast. We had a large room with kitchenette and veranda with the most incredible view of the Lake Como and surrounding mountains. Would strongly recommend for the view alone. We padn $105 Euros/night. Wi-fi internet available in room for 5 Euros/hour. Make sure you log of of the internet provider, otherwise you're charged even though the computer is turned off! The lady in charge (don't remember her name) was delightful. We had to leave early, before the breakfast hour, and she surprised us by getting up at 06:30 and making us breakfast. Although the rooms are 'standard', I strongly recommend you chose this family hotel over some of the monsters down in the city itself.

We had a wonderful 10th anniversary celebration on Lake Como and more specifically in Bellagio, because of Il Perlo. The family that runs the B&B sets a wonderful example or family owned and operated businesses. They provide shuttles upon arrival in Bellagio, you either have to call for them or follow the schedule. It is walkable, but with luggage could be a terrible experience. You can also walk into town (downhill) its beautiful and you can go throught the Melzi gardens on your way.

It is worth the short shuttle ride when you see the view from your room! Unbelievable! We had a corner room with a huge balcony that we watched the sunset from nightly and used for most of our meals. The B&B is clean, comfortable, quite and very reasonable. Breakfast was nice (especially since they allow you trays to take your meal to your room on or on the terrace) with a standard "european" breakfast.

The B&B also recommends a wonderful restaurant called Salice Blu. We went and experienced the most wonderful cooking class, it was a special thing the restaurant was doing and we were lucky enough to participate. There are a few other places worth noting, Ad Hoc a store in town with a beautiful selection of leather and silk goods. We compared prices to those in Milan and they were almost 20 to 30 euro cheaper and Carlos' also in town with beautiful pipes, maps, artwork, jewelry and antiquities.
