Great service, quiet, beautiful views, super clean, nice amenities, fabulous breakfast, pretty bar with great hors d'oeuvres. We had room 30 with a partial lake view but the private terrace was stunning, very private and quiet. The sun hit it in the afternoon, keeping us warm. It was the perfect place to enjoy a bottle of wine. The beds are... More

2 years ago, after a welcome hot tea & pastry here on a cold, rainy day, we had looked forward to returning for an overnight stay. We were Not disappointed! It is a charming place with equally charming owner and staff, who were very helpful and accommodating. Our view was great and will remain glittering in my memories until our... More

We went here for lunch. The terrace is fantastic. Nice open space with incredible views out over the lake. This place really should open for evening meals. We've no idea why they don't. The food was really good. Some great bruschetta and pasta dishes. Good beer and prosecco. Great staff.

We booked Hotel du Lac based on Tripadvisor reviews. We are so glad we did. This hotel has the most helpful, and lovely staff you could ever ask to meet. Nothing was to much trouble , even to the point of accompanying us to the local Post Office to send some boxes home to Australia. (They made it too )... More

What a beautiful hotel with the most breathtaking view of Lake Como! We stayed here for 4 days in late September. We had room 22, which was huge for Italy, with a wonderful step-out to a small patio with 2 chairs, with a to-die-for view of the lake, wooden floors, a big bed, A/C and a nice shower. The girl...

Only was here for lunch and what a lunch and view, just found this place by mistake, we were just walking in the tiny streets behind piazza san giorgio. A must visit for a lunch at least. Service and value were good. Pity i had already booked my stay someplace else, maybe next time over.

But we were able to walk thru and get all the details for our next trip. It is a very romantic place -a large villa, with many beautifully restored details , gleaming... More

I spent a ton of time researching hotels for my July 2013 trip to Varenna. I chose this hotel and asked for the best room with the best view. well, sometimes what you wish for and what you get are 2 different things. The room was very expensive and while very clean it was dated. The main bed was in... More

We didn't stay here, but came upon Hotel du Lac as we were roaming the alleyways of Varenna looking for someplace with a view to have dinner. The bar hostess politely apologized that they didn't serve dinner but we were welcome to come in for a drink. What a lovely, spectacular view of the lake! They had a "snack" menu... More

We loved this beautiful hotel and our room overlooking the lake. Breakfasts were really substantial, bar service was outstanding and staff took time to advise us on Varenna when needed. For service, comfort and cleanliness this lovely hotel is hard to beat.
