Il Perlo Panorama

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

There were 6 of us, thus requiring 3 rooms. We booked all lakeview rooms. We would have expected that all 3 rooms would be close together but they were not. 2 of the rooms were on the upper floors and one was on a lower level under the reception area which required going outside to get to. We had an upper room which was very dated and in a huge need of an upgrade. The shower stall was very small which made it difficult to turn around in and I'm a petite person. The included breakfast was minimal but sufficient. The owner lady was very sweet and helpful. We booked this hotel based on the many great reviews on this site. Unfortunately we were all very disappointed. And the price we paid was not "cheap". We had arrived quite late and left early morning so we could not get the view that so many raved about. There is no elevator so it's best just to pack a small overnight bag if staying just the one night.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel upon the recommendation of an article in Pez Cycling Magazine. We were not disappointed. Great location, comfortable room with amazing views of the lake and convenient access to a bike shop with top notch rentals. We came to climb the famous Mt. Ghisallo route from Bellagio and enjoyed our stay immensely.

I rented a road bike from Carlo, the proprietor of the hotel and bike shop, for two weeks in late October. Excellent, professional, friendly service!! Great bike, great terrain! I’ve cycled several continents and this area around lake Como is unbelievably beautiful and challenging. Carlo set me up with two guides from comolagobikes, Massimo and Luca, for a great, fun day’s ride. They were accommodating, congenial, experienced riders and took me on roads I may have had difficulty navigating/finding on my own. They get two thumbs up. I’m looking forward to my next visit and would highly recommend them to cyclists of any level of expertise.

Truly spectacular view from our lake facing room. Hospitality from the family Sancassano and their staff was exceptional. It may be a 2 star hotel but definitely 5 star + service. Simple but great quality food and drink happily prepared for you on request with a good breakfast included. The bike hire and shop was flawless and both bikes were set up perfect and waiting for us both days with great tips and info on the already famous and classic routes in the surrounding beautiful countryside freely available. Will definitely be back at a warmer time of year so i can enjoy the stunning patio more and cycle with a few less layers on and a with few more beach bar stops included in my daily rides - can't wait to return. Grazie Mille

A very beautiful B&B, even in november, very quiet and not so far from Bellagio downtown. Staff was extremely pleasant, the breakfast (both italian and continental) complete, the hand-made pies simply fabulous. Really reccommended.

Stayed for 2 nights here in this friendly family run hotel as a family of 4 in a family room which turned out to be a duplex in an annexe of the hotel. The space was huge and our boys (4&6) loved sleeping downstairs on their own, but it may not be suitable for younger families. The room itself on first glance could probably be best described as rustic Italian, not modern but absolutely no issues with cleanliness and added a certain charm. I could go on for hours about the view from the room, just stunning. Breakfast ticked all the boxes, the only thing was it was at the back of the hotel, which doesn’t show of the beautiful views. Maybe in summer you can take breakfast out on the patio, it was October and chilly in the morning. We ate in the hotel one night, very tasty, simple Italian fare, reasonably priced as well. This is a cycling hotel situated in one of the regions most famous climbs, unfortunately I didn’t get out this time but I really hope to be back in the near future and would certainly make this hotel my base.

Fantastic cycle crew great expertise and brilliant position very willing hotel staff an ideal place to base yourself for a week of serious riding around the stunning lake como with electric car shuttle to and from belagio...superb

The hotel is absolutely amazing. Cozy atmosphere,gorgeous lake and wood view,friendly staff,delicious breakfast,really good coffee at any time,parking on site. It was great experience to stay there. Would definitely book it again

Il Perlo, the San Cassano family and the staff are absolutely wonderful to their guests! I can only echo what others say here because we eagerly returned again to Il Perlo in September 2017 after our 2016 visit. The view is of course everything you would expect and more but Carlo, his Mom and the staff work hard to make you feel at home. Add all that to the fact Il Perlo is a bike hotel via their guide and rental service ComoLagoBike and you have a winning combo for cyclists. Bring your bikes as we did or let them fit you a rental but don't miss the beautiful cycling the lake has to offer! Hats off to you again Carlo! Room 14 again when we return!

The view from my room shocked me. The Como Lake looked even better than what I saw from town center in Bellagio. There is five-minute driving distance from hotel to town center. It makes me feel so quiet. Some people riding bicycles choose this hotel. Maybe I could try it next time.
