The hotel is tired and desperately needs updating. The mattress on the beds were 30+ years old and springs dug into our backs. We couldn't sleep a wink and when we politely asked to change rooms to a newer mattress the manager was absolutely rude, was incredibly difficult and

Contrary to what some of the comments here say, we actually enjoyed our stay here. We stayed in one of the Lake view rooms on the 2nd floor which had amazing views. The reception was helpful whenever we have questions. The bed was ok and wasn't hard at all. I mean, for a 3 star

The hotel is dissapointing, with outdoor noisy restaurant in front of entrance. Loud music and screams from restaurant at night make sleeping impossible. Front desk is rude, poorly trained. Do not advise to stay at this hotel. Broken shades kept room vindow closed. We were

We came on the ferry to the Bellagio as we had visited here 47 years ago. We had a meal at this restaurant on the waters edge. We were not impressed. We were quite late for lunch so we're told to order quickly and then others came in and were accommodated. The service was ok to

What’s not to love about Bellagio on Lake Como. This was our 2nd visit to Bellagio it is just so beautiful. We did a day trip from Milan. Train to Varenna then across on the ferry. We had lunch at a table on the lake at the Excelsior Splendide. My hubby had the seafood pasta and

If you are arriving into como then thw ferry is best way, but try and time your arrival so not waiting too long. From milan you can get train to Varenna via lecco and then a short ferry to bellagio, hotel is less than a ten minute walk from ferry stop. Hotel splendide very nice, especially if you havr a front view, Food ok we would go B&B next time as we dont eat fish, staff really pleasant. Spend a bit of time checking ferry times as they vary but a lovley way too see the lake and saves taking a trip back down. You can buy a montn pass for less than a week pass and will cover the main stops in ghe centre of lake but not como.check this as it might be seasonal .the road from como to ferry point is very narrow and windy and the coach we were on got stuck a couple of times and narrowly missed a couple of accidents. Pool is nice and great after A day of sightseeing. Milan via varenna is best option but dont forget to get a ticket when you arrive into Milan and scan it at station by train to get back on or ticket is invalid. Have a great time

No idea! Bellagio is in Italy and St. Moritz is in Switzerland.

We travelled from Bergamo airport to Bellagio. It took 70minutes and cost 96 euros each way for the taxi so I suspect Monza will be similar

We stayed here for a week but only ate breakfast in the restaurant. While the restaurant is good it lacks the atmosphere that you would want for a special night to remember. There are several beautiful restaurants along the lake shore in Bellagio that I feel would be a better choice for a last night on Lake Como.

I agree with other reviews - food is good but not enough to be memorable. We had dinner every night of our stay and enjoyed most of them but we only had lunch once and found it very expensive.
