Hotel Excelsior Splendide offers good value for money and is a popular choice. It’s on Bellagio’s promenade so the location couldn’t be any better. You’ll be surrounded by the town's boutique shops and charming little cafés, as well as being close to the ferry port for days out.

The hotel fits in really well with its surroundings. The exterior of the building has classic Italian design and there’s an old-world elegance about it. Inside the décor is simple and there’s a nice pool out back to cool off in when it gets too hot. The hotel’s got their own gelateria so you’ll have a constant supply of ice cream if you want. For dinner you’ll be treated to some classic Italian dishes at Ristorante Splendide. They've got a nice indoor dining room and some tables on the lakefront terrace. To get the best seats, head here for a lovely a la carte lunch.
