Bellagio's icon.

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 26, 2007

This hotel is Bellagio's icon and it sits proudly on the waterfront of Lake Como. The hotel is absolutely beautiful in an traditional Italian way, oozing with charm and character this hotel has had some incredible famous guests. In the hall way leading to the restaurant a display of who's who have stayed decorates the walls. Former guests includes Winston Churchill, Roosevelt, the Rothschild’s, J.F. Kennedy; Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks, Maria Schell, Clark Gable, Robert Mitchum, Al Pacino etc.etc.... and of course a couple from Australia !!

If you can afford this luxury hotel then why not spoil yourself with stunning rooms and beautiful gorgeous sumptuous position overlooking the divine Lake Como.

If you cannot afford to stay here then at least treat yourself to dinner or lunch at one of the restaurants in Hotel Serbelloni.

Unique Quality: The waterfront position.

A Star on Lago di Como

by written on August 19, 2006

Widely considered the most famous and fabulous hotel on Lago di Como, the Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni began its life in the mid-nineteen century as a holiday villa for a wealthy Milanese family. The family sold the villa in 1872 and the following year the villa began its new life as the Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni (not to be confused with the "Villa Serbelloni" owned by the Rockefeller Foundation). The same family has owned the hotel for over a hundred years and now the 5th generation of the family, headed by Gianfranco Bucher, is the owner and manager of the hotel.

The hotel occupies a wide expanse of the peninsula overlooking Lago di Como enjoying one of the most perfect locations in Bellagio. There are gardens, pools, a lakeside terrace, several beautiful dining rooms/restaurants, lounges, a spa and so much more to explore. There is a very lovely, and cozy bar area for an apperitif or nightcap.

I did not stay at this hotel but did enter the lobby and can only give you my impressions. A check of the current website seems to indicate that a refurbishment of the hotel has been ongoing. Some room suites seem to be opulently furbished while others may be considered vastly more modest. When its magnificent location is taken into account, the room rates are still exceedingly steep.

NOTE: The room rates below have changed. Please check their website for current prices.
Standard Doubles - 4/29 - 9/23/06 ~ 250 Euros per night; Fall ~ 215 Euros
Deluxe Doubles ~ with living room~ 535 Euros per night summer; Fall ~ 460 Euros
Executive Doubles ~ with living room ~ 730 Euros per night summer; Fall ~ 680 Euros
Senior Suites ~ 935 Euros in summer and 880 Euros ~ Fall
Third or fourth persons are extra; above prices include only taxes & services

Unique Quality: This hotel's public rooms, staircases, dining rooms, lakeside terrace and livings rooms are palatial and are filled with the finest frescoed ceilings, carvings, marble staircases, Murano crystal chandeliers and so much more. From the exterior, the hotel seems to be on a scale with palaces throughout Europe and worth viewing.

However, in my opinion, unless your pockets are very deep and you can afford the finest rooms here, you may be somewhat disappointed with only the standard double rooms and their minor amenities. The furnishings of the standard rooms leave something to be desired unless you are privileged with a view of the lake. The Senior Suites on the other hand are marvelous to behold and probably were occupied by the likes of Winston Churchill, Franklin Roosevelt, kings and dignitaries, and many movie stars during their various stays at this hotel. That being said, I would be happy just being able to explore this hotel and its lakeside vantage point, have a drink at the bar or a meal in their restaurant, but stay somewhere else.

Luxury on Lake Como

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 28, 2006

Originally constructed in the 1850s for a wealthy Milanese family, this neo-classical villa became a hotel in 1873. Luxuriously decorated throughout with high ceilings, magnificent chandeliers, massive chandeliers and wall and ceiling frescoes. It has played host to a huge number of diverse individuals over the years from the Roosevelts and Winston Churchill to Clark Gable and Al Pacino. The cars in the parking lot are indicative of the tone of this 5 star hotel.

Unique Quality: Positioned on a slight hill overlooking Lake Como, the hotel features painted ceilings in the guest rooms, a magnificent dining room, and overlooking the lake a terrace and a swimming pool. Facing west, it offers views of the far side of the lake at sunset. There is a free carpark, crucial in Bellagio. The hotel is surrounded by well-maintained gardens and now has a fitness center.
