We stayed three nights at Hotel Metropole Bellagio, Lake Como. We had a nice double room lake view with an outdoor balcony on the 2nd floor. The room was spacious and so was the bathroom for European standards. I enjoyed sitting on the chair on the balcony and admiring the lake views in the evening and early morning. Our three kids shared a triple room with side lake views. It was perfect for them. They each had their own twin bed and shared a bathroom.
The ferry stops are located right outside the hotel area. They run early in the morning till around 8:00 p.m.
We never had dinner at the restaurant downstairs. There are many restaurants around the area. We did enjoy the lovely breakfast spread in the morning from 7:30 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. which is included with your stay. They also offer free wifi service. The hotel has an elevator and also air conditioning. They have a nice patio area on the 4th floor which is used for sunbathing and sitting around in the evenings.
