Having seen the hotel on The Tourist – we decided we must stay here – though actually just the main lobby and reception actually featured in the film! Regardless of this it is a beautiful hotel – we had booked a deluxe room with breakfast for 3 nights – and was upgraded to a lagoon view in the main original building above the Tourist suite – which was a nice surprise. They had booked a few restaurants for me that we had read about on trip advisor- though in the end we cancelled 2 of them having had a look whilst in the areas. Just Tratatoria Johnny (reviewed) we ate at of which we were so glad we did.
From the moment you enter the hotel you know you are going to have a wonderful stay. Breakfast on the terrace on the 4th floor has the most spectacular views of Venice and the grand canal. We ate under the huge canopy – that runs the length of the terrace and protects you from the strong sun and heat. Everything was delicious and breakfast was a wonderful start to the day.
The hotel is located a few minutes walk from St Marks Square and the river bus stops right outside.
We opted for the river bus from the airport – which in retrospect I wish we had taken a taxi. The river bus is 15 euros pp and can take about 90 mins with a number of stops before arriving outside the hotel. It is quite a slow ride.
The river taxis speed past and are about 100euros for a 40 min ride. The walk from the terminal to both the river taxis and river bus can take about 10 mins zig zagging to the lagoon from the terminal.
The hotel offers a free taxi to a Murano glass factory which is well worth it. We had a walk around the island after the glass blowing show and inevitable hard sell of the most amazing glass chandeliers, objects and glass. then walked back to the factory who then arranged for a free taxi back to the old Jewish ghetto rather than the hotel.
I found our room felt a bit on the small side due to the porthole style windows behind a stone balustrade. The bathroom is quite compact with rainfall shower in the bath, bidet, all in beautiful marble. The room is richly appointed with period furniture, drapes and lights with a large standing wardrobe, dresser and super comfortable huge bed with delightful pillows as one comes to expect from Starwood premium hotels.
One criticism was that our room was not serviced on the Sunday of our stay between leaving at 9.30am and returning at 4.30pm. They sorted it out immediately after I pointed it out.
Despite the hotel being very busy as it was the middle of the film festival – we never felt standards had been sacrificed on the other guests.
Apart from the cleaning oversight – if you can push the boat out and stay here – you should. A wonderful experience.

Hotel Bellagio (Italy) – 2016 Hotel Reviews #cransley #hospice

#bellagio hotel


Stayed here for 7 nights August 2016.

Very comfortable stay, great location in central Bellagio. Our first visit to Lake Como and we could not have chosen a better base.

Stayed here for 7 nights August 2016.

Very comfortable stay, great location in central Bellagio. Our first visit to Lake Como and we could not have chosen a better base.

Staff exteremely professional, very helpful and willing to offer advice to ensure you make the most of your stay. All staff speak excellent English and were very polite. We travelled with our teenage boys so had a double twin room which worked very well. Our rooms were at the rear of the hotel so no lake view but that was not really a problem.

The 39 steps are not very steep and should not cause any problem to able bodied travellers.

Rooms were very clean, continental breakfast was included in our charge and this set us up nicely for the day.

The hotel arranged transfers from to Bergarmo airport (app roc 1 hour 40 minutes), I recommend this arrangement.

To access the main shops, from main entrance of the hotel, turn right, left and right again (it saves going down and then up hill again!)
Buy ferry tickets early to avoid queing up.

Make sure you take time to see the older parts of the area such as Loppia, San Giovanni and the lovely fishing harbour of Pescello. All of these can be reached easily on foot (obtain directions from the hotel). These places offer a peaceful retreat when things become overcrowded in central Bellagio.

Walk to villa Melzi to visit the lovely grounds alongside the lake (small entrance fee).

The Sporting Club is approx 15 minute walk and offers good facilities which are free for residents of Hotel Bellagio (take your room card for discounts of food drinks).

The best pastries are from Pasticerria Castelli,
Best ice creams (Gellato) from Gellataria Borga
Make use of the 10% discount for Ballagio Ristorante (Hotel Du Lac), food is very nice.
Best pizzas (and other local dishes) from Baba Yaga (5 mins from hotel)
Antico Pozzo also provide very nice meals and good service.
Best boat hire: AC Boats in Menaggio.
Best live music we found was in the lake side restaurant of the Hotel Splendide

The refurbished steam ferry Concordia offers a mid lake tour on Thursday Sunday (mid summer only), very enjoyable 1.5 hour excision on a sunny day! Tickets available on the day.

We enjoyed visiting the local towns of Varenna Mennagio.

We recommend the following villas which can be reached by ferry:
Carlotta (Tramezzo), Del Balbianello (Lenno), Monastera (Varenna), all have their own characteristics. When visiting Carlotta, leave your pictures from the font of the villa until later as everyone tries to take photos as soon as they arrive. It gets much quieter later on, there is also a nice cafe in the grounds with good views of the lake.
