My husband and I stayed here on a last minute decision. Not many affordable options in Bellagio with parking included. This one happens to have free parking and is in a great location. It is actually the Apartments above the Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni's Fitness center which is just an alley behind the Hotel. We stayed at Residence #10, the smallest apartment but was very spacious! It was the corner unit, all the windows have lake views from a distance but still very nice. There's a kitchen, dining table, sitting area, TV with English channels, strong wifi!(only 1 device per code) The bathroom is very clean, not a lot of counter space but it's workable. We got the same toiletries they use at the Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni. Very short walk to the promenade and all the shopping areas and restaurants. There's a balcony with several tables and chairs, good for relaxing in the afternoon. Wished we could've stayed longer but we were only in Lake Como for a night. We thought this place would be perfect should we decide to bring our kids and parents next time. Everyone would be more comfortable here vs a hotel. Too bad, we didn't get to use the pool but next time I hope to book one of these apartments again.

After some research we found out about these appartments and immediately it appealed to me. The apartments are just behind the beautiful Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni but at a fraction of the cost to stay in the hotel. You have full use of all the facilities of the hotel, pool, restaurants etc while there and the staff treated us as if we were staying in the hotel. Our appartment was perfect for us (two people) it was very spacious and the bed was very comfy. We had a small kitchen with everything you need and a wonderful balcony with sun beds and chairs and an amazing view. The view was absolutely beautiful and the balcony a lovely sun trap. We absolutely loved staying here as it gave us the freedom to cook a light breakfast and have a full size fridge for our stay. My only warning to anyone one who is not driving is that the appartments are up a steep hill but it was a great way to keep fit from all the wonderful food we were eating. There are steps to bring you down to the gardens (which are absolutely beautiful) and the swimming pool. The prices for the drinks at the pool were much higher then what we paid around the town but I did expect that. There was side exit from the apartments (instead of going through the hotel) and just outside there was a lovely restaurant and lots of shops where you could get fabulous cheeses and fresh rolls etc. I really can not fault anything about our stay here. The concierge in the hotel were so helpful to me when I was having a problem printing my boarding card and when I said we wanted to go to Switzerland they printed off times of trains and lots of information for me. We are already planning a return trip and looking forward to staying there again.

The property, even though claiming on popular booking sites that it has a free cancellation policy, will charge you on the day you decide to book and then take ages to refund you. Bear in mind, you will wile booking with free cancellation, you will loose money on the currency exchange and the fees, so the cancellation will not be free. It took them 2 weeks and 2 phone calls to finally issue the refund.

Furthermore, the amazing pool they show off on every website? It's actually from another hotel and while you do have access to it, it does not belong to Residence L'Ulivo.

Bellagio is a most beautiful village/small town located midway up at the very tip of the inverted "Y" shape of Lake Como. The scenery, everywhere you look, is breathtakingly stunning and this resort is full of beautifully preserved and maintained buildings and gardens.
The apartments are positioned just behind the fabulous Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni. Our apartment was spacious with good sized bedroom and very comfy bed and had a small balcony with 2 sun beds and 2 chairs with a small table and views of the lake and mountains.
It was a very short walk to the village centre with a big choice of bars and restaurants and the dock area where there are ferries running constantly to take you to the other towns and villages on the lake.
With free parking and the right to use all of the facilities of the main Grand Hotel next door, we really enjoyed our 5 night stay.
Our only criticisms of the accommodation were that the lighting was not great and was not very contemporary and the furniture in the living room, comprising an armchair and a sofa bed settee, we're not very comfortable to sit on for any length of time and the bathroom was not up to modern standards, albeit that everything worked, but, for example, a small shower curtain rather than a glass shower screen, is no longer what I would really expect to find.
So, to conclude, we had a great time and the apartment worked well, but it would benefit from a bit of a makeover to make it really first class.

I picked this place for the location. I wanted somewhere walking distance from the action in Bellagio, yet in a quiet area. The grounds are beautiful. We enjoyed swimming in the pool, and even took a dip in the (chilly) lake. A highlight of our stay was a picnic dinner on the terrace, overlooking the lake.

I was impressed with the honesty of the house-keeping staff. Upon returning from our morning walk, we were greeted by the house-keeper and her managers...both with very solemn faces. We wondered if some one had died. It turned out that while cleaning a cell phone had been bumped off the bed, fell to the floor and cracked. There were smiles all around when we explained that the crack was old, from a previous fall. Although the housekeeper had done no damage to our phone, we were very impressed with her honesty.

Some of the reviews below gave me pause, by their comments about being treated inferior to the guests of the sister hotel. This was not at all the case for us. Our group of 12 arrived in 2 vans, exhausted and cranky from the flight from Chicago. The bellman was wonderful, driving with us to the Residence. The concierge and front desk staff treated us very well, as did the pool staff.
TIP: Driving to the hotel through the pedestrian area is a bit tricky the first time. Fear not, and drive through.
