In October, 2018, I celebrated a major birthday with my husband in Bellagio, Italy, at the Hotel du Lac. It was a dream come true for me ever since I'd read Anita Brookner's novel by that name decades earlier. Everything about the four days we spent there was perfect. We

We took a boat ride from Bellagio just enjoying the views and decided to eat lunch here and it was great. The service was excellent, they were always checking to see if we needed anything. The meal was excellent. Great place for lunch, would definitely go back.

We stayed here at the end of the tourist season, just days before the hotel closed for the winter. Even though it rained a fair amount, we loved our stay. The room was really comfortable and had a great view of the lake; the staff could not have been friendlier or more

The room we stayed in had nice views from the windows but no balcony, so no, they do not all have a balcony. However, the area used for breakfast and lunch is basically a large public balcony which can be enjoyed by all. It's really a wonderful location to stay and I think you'll enjoy it regardless of whether you have a view or balcony in the room itself.

Is there air conditioning?
Yes, the rooms are air conditioned and quite comfortable, but not really needed unless you are staying in the middle of summer. Then it can get warm and somewhat humid.

I was there in early October and there was no trouble finding a space. The parking area is very tight. As you enter the square and head down the narrow drive to the hotel, have someone get out of the car to direct. You will need those few extra inches to be able to enter a space. The lower levelis more convenient for entering the hotel. There is a daily charge for parking.

"The rooms above the restaurant (if memory serves me well, they're rooms 9,10, and 11) have full patios."
"Lake views are lovely. If you don't like stairs, ask for a room in the wing with the elevator. There are only a few rooms in that wing"
"We had a superior room with a lake view, but no balcony. AC was great too."
"Room 33 has nice water views and is the only room on the floor."
"Water views are prized rooms. Book well ahead."
