Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Florence Bellagio
Beautiful hotel in perfect location.
Of our 14 nights spent in hotels in Italy, this was by far the nicest, and cheapest, hotel. Located right on the water in Bellagio, it's in a perfect spot. We had a large room with a GREAT view. The hotel's restaurant is also very good. The staff was wonderful and very accomodating.
We actually left the hotel next door and checked in here. This hotel has a lot of character, our room was adorable. We also had a great view of the lake. We both enjoyed breakfast as well. I highly recommend this hotel to travelers.
Really wonderful !
We stayed at the Hotel Florence for 3 nights in a room on the fourth floor with a balcony over the street. Small view from our balcony. The room was small, but comfortable. Nice bathroom ! The breakfasts were great, and the lunch on the lake-side patio was the best we had in Italy. Great location and a nice bar for evening cocktails or wine. We loved its charm !
The Hotel Florence in Bellagio was wonderful
Travelled around Italy with one of my good friends. Very much enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Florence. We stayed in a room with a Lake view -- gorgeous. Very modern bathroom, great wood ceilings and floors, professional, friendly and knowledgable staff. It is easy to get to everything in Bellagio from the hotel and the ferry stop is a quick 1-2 minute walk. Highly recommend it!
Have just returned from 4 days in Bellagio, where we stayed at the Hotel Florence. We loved the setting, loved the decor and the staff were wonderful! Their lakeside patio is the best in the town and the American Bar patio is also wonderful. The only problem - we started in a non-lake view room and were disappointed as it was noisy backing on to a walkway. We were able to move to a lakeside room but found that the sun was unbearable in the late afternoons, when we had hoped to enjoy a glass of wine and enjoy the view! You have to put up with a little noise on either side but the location and excellent mix of antique old/funky new decor made up for it!
We had such an enjoyable time in Belagio at the hotel Florence that we went back a second time and stayed at the same hotel. We look forward to going back again,staying at the Hotel Florence and having dinner at their wonderful setting by the lake.
Nice Hotel, BUT ......
My wife and I spent 3 days in Bellagio during the end of July 2003 and stayed in room #4 at the Hotel Florence. It shares a large 2nd floor deck with #5 that has a great view of the Lake to the west.
Unfortunately the outdoor metal chairs are rediculously unconfortable so you need to use a pillow. It appears that rooms 1,2,& 3 also share a similar balcony/deck slightly elevated to the North. The room was fairly small for 180 Euro and there is no air conditioning, so with a western exposure, it literally bakes during hot summer afternoons. The bathroom was very nice, but the window is directly above a busy alley and the noise comes in. The restaurant is "lakeside" right across the street and the food as well as the service was very good. All in all, this is a "nice" hotel but no way can anyone give it more than 3 stars.
The Villa Serbelloni (right next door) is far nicer (at twice the price) but watch out for getting ripped off at their fancy restaurant if you go for dinner. Since Bellagio is at the bifurcation of Lake Como, the location is great for exploring towns on the lake (e.g. we took the hydrofoil to Villa D'Este for lunch), but all in all, we enjoyed Lake Maggiore (30km west) a lot more than Como. It was MUCH less touristy, far more elbow room and had several 4* Hotels for the same price (180 Euro) as Como.
This hotel was perfect. Lovely location and room and the lakeside restaurant was the best in Bellagio.
Recommended by my Travel Agent. The Hotel is family run and is simply georgeous.
Hotel Florence in Beautiful Bellagio
I am so glad that we found this wonderful hotel in Bellagio, Italy just steps from the Ferry stop on Lake Como. Bellagio is situated at the point where the 3 arms of Lake Como come together and the 3 star Hotel Florence presents a magnificent view of the lake. The rooms were lovely and very comfortable and the restaurant was elegant and shouldn't be missed. The staff was very eager to please and they made us feel right at home. Bellagio is a wonderful place to visit and the Hotel Florence made it that much more enjoyable. Just remember to take the Rapid Ferry!

... we had found our way there, we could not have looked at it! We decide we have had enough walking for today and follow the main road back to the car. We have decided to make a big salad for lunch and spend the afternoon relaxing in our garden. We drive to the supermarketo in Bellagio and stock up. Back to Nesso and park the car and Roger has just arrived back too. We walk the 2-300 metres back to the apartment - this is another goat track with very ...
... we went back to where the sign was to find there was another smaller road heading up. We went up and it got very narrow. There were a few cars parked and then a sign we were unsure about - did it mean no entry? Or no parking? We thought it meant the road was one way and in our direction so we continued on a bit only to find it got so narrow that the car was hardly fitting. We decided that maybe the sign had said it was a pedestrian road only. So Wendy now had to ...
... she then complained she couldn't see anything except peoples backs. Hmm, lady you are standing with your back to a window - if you turn around you will be able to see the view like everyone else! It was a bit unfortunate that the weather had turned a bit. The normal haze we have been experiencing had become very thick during lunchtime so the view was not as spectacular as it could have been, but it is still very good. And we could imagine what the view without haze would be. At the ...
... did not recognise the village name. So we soldier on... We find the turnoff that the GPS shows as leading to the hotel. Up we go, and up and up and finally we arrive at a group of farmhouses. No hotel. Wrong road. So back down we go. Along a bit further and here is a road that both the tourist map and the GPS says should work. We go up again and finally reach a supermarketo and while the road does continue on, it now becomes one ...
... and I had to nurse it home. It had been giving me trouble for 10 days or so and I thought it was my fault for letting the fuel get too low and therefore the dirty stuff at the bottom had upset it. It turned out to be some computerised part that needed to be reset. On Friday we went to Ventimiglia markets. We tried going by car but after going up the mountain to the entrance to the A8 I realised I couldn’t trust it to go all that way so we drove to the ...
