The one bedroom suite was clean, quiet and comfortable.
Marco was very nice and picked us up from the ferry and dropped us off there when we checked out.
Great short cut path into town 10 minute walk on a cobblestone type path.
No air conditioning but the closed
shutters during the day kept out the heat from the sun.
Peaceful an quiet for a family of four.
Hotel staff was very welcoming and even had a happy hour that included drinks and some snacks that were simple yet tasty. Rooms are rustic but clean and comfortable. Hotel is located up the hill in Bellagio so you need to be sure you are able to walk up the hill (some shops and restaurants are up the hill as well so in some ways it is an advantage). Grocery store (mini market) was within two minutes walk. Kitchen was essentially a kitchenette (small) but functioned quite well. Center of Bellagio which has the ferry docks is about a 7 minute walk. Plenty of room to spread out - perfect for families. Air conditioning functioned quite well. No laundry facilities but there is a 24 hour laundromat in the center of Bellagio 7-10 minutes walk from the Bethusy apartment/hotel.
For those coming to Bellagio from the south, taking the local train from Milan (Milano Centrale station) to Varenna-Essino (1 hour train ride), and then taking ferry from Varenna over to Bellagio (15 minutes) is a better option than taking the train to the town of Como and then taking a ferry from Como to Bellagio as the Como-to-Bellagio ferry does not run more than every few hours and can take up to 2 hours to get to Bellagio. Just make sure that you purchase your return tickets from Varenna to Milan ahead of time as the Varenna-Essino train station does not have a ticket window (you can also buy them at any tobacco shop, which there are many).
Would definitely stay here again.

A Family run hotel that looks over the lake, the food was good, breakfast was typical continental, but the evening meal was a delight, but closed Tuesdays. The hotel was only a few yards from the ferry terminal and ferries ran fairly frequently around the lake. One tip I was given, having hired a car from Milan, was to take the ferry to Bellagio and go to Milan from there. A much better journey than coming from Como

My husband & I really enjoyed this hotel. Our room had a lovely balcony overlooking the gorgeous pool and the town Varenna across Lake Como. It was enjoyable to listen to the band playing in the evenings by the pool. Our room was very clean and had excellent bedding. The breakfast buffet was very good and had many choices. This hotel was in walking distance to Villa Carlotta, so great location. We took the boat to visit other towns on the lake. It rained but we were prepared with poncho's and umbrellas. Lake Como is beautiful in all weather conditions! We hope to return to this hotel in the future!
Paolo and his family provided us with the best stay. The villa has excellent location, comfortable facilities, the pool has a magnificent view to the lake and service is great! It has become our address in Lake Como. No need to look further!

The hotel is located right on the lake como, a few minutes away from villa carlotta and cadenabbia ( car ferry for bellagio ) , 5 km away from lenno ( villa balbianello ) and menaggio( car ferry to varenna) . You can walk theough the lake , which is not easy at the other villages of como. The hotel has a restaurant on the lake which is great. The rooms are old fashioned, with lake view, no air condition - not necessary in june, but we felt comfortable overall. Breakfast was ok, i recommend this hotel if you wanna stay in a good location with lake view but do not wanna pay so much for a stay.
