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!

... I walked back to check things out and he was proposing!!! "Can you marry me?" (not email me!!!). He was down on his knee and the girl was still saying "Are you serious?". They were very cute, and our children were being so well-behaved that we don't think we've scared them away from pro-creating. We then saw a wedding group approach; the Aussie bride, bridesmaid and father of the bride approached by boat and walked up the hill to the Villa. Their pictures will be amazing! ...
... ceiling. We called our room "Grandma's attic" because I had to duck to get around to my side of the bed (as well as to use the toilet). The commode and bidet were unlike anything we'd ever seen before - there were tall and really narrow, so much so that Caroline couldn't put her heels on the ground when using them. She says it felt like sitting on a "tall tree stump."
It was a 10 minute walk from our apartment to the center of Bellagio, which was ...
... frigid lake for my daily ceremonial swim. Finally, a bit further, the gorge opens up a bit, and there are big patches of grass interrupting the endless forest. It's quite refreshing to see... it seems like it's been forever since I last saw open space. On this side, again, abandoned stone houses, but on the other side of the river there's a villages that's still inhabited. This is really starting to feel like the Alps that I read about in ...
... up the narrowing gorge for a ways... then finally spot a pedestrian suspension bridge far below... I go to check it out and... sure enough, on the other side there's a magical trail winding up the gorge, with mysterious abandoned stone houses and rushing rapids squeezing between the giant boulders. It's not long before I reach my first mountain village: San Giagomo Filipo. A sizeable village built along the steep slopes. It doesn't seem to be just ...
... opt to set up my camera along the railing of the bridge and run down to pose with the guitar on a walkway along the river. Probably a foolish decision--as a somebody could bump the camera... and there'd go all the pictures and videos I've taken over the last couple of days... I continue on through the town, past a refurbished castle and an open area where you can gaze up at terraces and houses perched high up on the steep mountain slopes. This ...
