The Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni

A luxury hotel with tradition that stands the test of time.

Tradition, elegance, and good taste, a discreet touch of exclusiveness: these are in short, the credentials that make the Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni in Bellagio one of the most sought after destinations in international tourism, and is the only 5 star luxury category hotels in the town of Bellagio, Como, Italy.  The central part of the building dates from 1850 and was originally intended as a holiday villa. But only two decades later, in 1873, the two lateral wings were added and the house was transformed into a hotel. From that moment the Grand Hotel became a “holiday home” for the cream of European aristocracy, as well as for royalty, who would come with large entourages of friends and servants, and would alternate picnics and trips on the lake with sumptuous balls in the splendid salons with their frescoed ceilings.

The Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni enjoys an enviable location in the centre of Bellagio. One of the most suggestive towns on the northern Italian lakes, but at the same time, being distant from the roads means that the hotel is surrounded by peace and tranquility. To the rear the private park and the hillside give protection in a haven of greenery, while the front of the hotel looks over out the lake, from which it is separated only by the swimming pool and private beach. A landing stage is available to those guests who wish to organize boat trips departing directly from the hotel.  The hotel offers 95 rooms (73 rooms & 22 Suites), all with views of Lake Como or hotel’s private park. The ultimate in comfort is guaranteed by these spacious rooms with all the necessary accoutrements.

Inside the hotel there are small secluded lounges for conversation, large salons for parties or receptions, a high class bar service, and two restaurants:

Mistral”, Allow yourselves an evening in the magical atmosphere of our MISTRAL Restaurant, located on the main terrace, with its wonderful view of the Lake.
