Hotels in Lake Como, Italy

I would like a recommendation for a good hotel on Bellagio or on Lake Como. An address or email address would be helpful. Thanks

Hi, from your travel partner. I see you found this site. I found the Hotel we saw in Bellagio in my photo album - It's the Metropole - cheap but fabulous views, nice restaurant. I think the Hotel du Lac was the 2nd hotel we saw, but it was closed when we visited - no balconies, however. See you soon

I stayed at the Metropole in Bellagio and thought it was a great value. I'm sure other hotels have more comforts etc. but this hotel was lake front and just off the ferry dock. I'd recommend it entirely.

I found it under the web site:

I really liked Hotel du Lac. There were no balconies, but great windows that opened up to a view of the lake. There was also a roof terrace that was pretty neat.

Been to Lago d'Como once, stayed at Hotel de Lac. Heartily recommend it. The others mentioned here looked good from the outside. Du Lac was great though, nice restaurant, close to everything, right accross the street from the lake. Owners were very friendly and helpful. Caio

You didn't specify price range so I will recommend the Barchetta Excelsion in Como, right on square overlooking lake. Very nice hotel (4 star), central location, nice rooms. Be sure to get one with balcony overlooking the square and lake. Hotel offers free parking if you are driving in an enclosed gargage just a few steps away. They do have a web site but I do not have address handy. Do search on Como and hotels and it should pop up.

I've stayed at the Belvedere in Bellagio and loved it. The rooms located in the main building have balconies overlooking one of the lakes--I forget which one--and the rooms in the single story annex acutally open up to the lake and shared patio. The Belvedere also served some delicious cuisine. Give it a look at

Good luck!

I agree with Kathy regarding the Hotel Belvedere in Bellagio. We stayed there in 1997 and loved it. It is up on the hill above town, and the views from the room actually overlook the fishing village on the opposite side of the penninsula.

We had a room in the main building on the 1st floor (in US we would call it the 2nd floor, one above ground level) and our room had a huge patio that was just about as big as our room. The rooms above us had regular balconies. The lake view from our room was wonderful, and we found our room to be very clean, pretty, and comfortable.

Just returned from Lake Como, where we stayed at the Belvedere Hotel in Bellagio last week. Highly recommend the hotel. Wonderful location right on Lake Como, with a breathtaking view of the lake and mountains from your room. Plus: a wonderful, wonderful staff and an excellent restaurant.
We stayed there based on several recommendations from this forum and we were not disappointed.
It's a short walk from the center of town. We felt we were better off staying here than in the center.
P.S.: The weather was wonderful last week.

Remember the words of BOB THE NAVIGATOR of this forum. I don't quote exactly, but he said, get a room in Bellagio. Which room is not so important - position is everything. I foolishly ignored his advice. This forum will recommend Hotel du Lac, Belvedere, maybe Florence. They were all full. As a backstop: I lunched at Silvio's, right on the shore on the edge of town. It was good, and too cheap. Rooms (probably not all with views, but the brochure makes it look as if they have been recently decorated) are 110,000 lire, which shocked me. This is one of the most affluent areas of Europe - how do you make a living at that price?
