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.

We are two females in our mid twenties who stayed for 4 nights. We loved our stay here, it was like a home away from home. Emilia and Roberto were lovely and very generous, they even drove us to the airport at 4am! The flat was clean and a good size, and is a 20min slow walk to the centre of Bellagio (welcome exercise after all that gelato!). There is a very nice sport complex with pool, sunbeds, bar and tennis 10min walk away which we would recommend and Supermarket 3min walk away. Would definitely stay again. Diolch Emilia!

A great hotel in a fantastic setting right over the road from the ferry terminal. The view from the breakfast room and 5th floor terrace is stunning. Nice loungers and a shower to cool you down. Really nice to take lunch on the ground floor terrace in the midst of things and buzzing.

Hidden in a true Italian mountain village, is this gem with the most outstanding views. You can't help but to sit every minute on your balcony, soaking in the view from sunrise to well into the middle of the night. With a lovely shop 10mins up the road to get fresh bread and pastries in the morning and a great 'locals' Pizzeria, I had found the perfect Italian getaway for my family. The pool was a reasonable size and again swimming with the beautiful surroundings, you struggled to pull yourself away to visit other areas. We were lucky to experience both types of apartments and they were equally perfect for anyone’s needs, there was nothing needed and all the utensils in the cupboards to cook your favourite dishes too. Sarah was so friendly and even though there was a freak, once in a life time, incident, it was dealt with so efficiently by both the owners of the property and the local services, everything was back to normal within hrs of daybreak and on a Sunday too! A must is to hire a boat, save your pennies and even if for a couple of hours it is a fab experience, head south where the water is so warm and the towns and houses are extraordinary. Recommend 'Boat Hire' in Dongo. If I was to throw a negative in it would be the restaurants around the area we went to, all had the same menus and I didn't get to introduce my husband and daughter to quiet the food heaven I have experienced on my other travels to Italy. This is not to say what we did eat wasn't great.
This is one of the best B&B we stayed so far. Marco and his wife are very nice hosts. Breakfast was very good and the room was very clean. From the terrace, while you drink your morning coffee, you can have a magnificent view of the lake. Their garden is a little paradise. We will definitely go back in the spring as Marco suggested and we strongly recommend their villa.
