My wife and recently spent 5 nights on holiday in Varenna, on Lake Como, staying at the Hotel du Lac. We would thoroughly recommend Varenna in general as a holiday location and the Hotel du Lac in particular. Its location on the waterfront could not be better – a room with a balcony and lake view is a must. The... More

The other reviewers singing the praises of this hotel are right on the mark. This place was perfect for our three night stay on Lake Como. We had a corner room with a gorgeous view of the lake (room 25). Breakfast in the morning was great. The outdoor terrace where many guests come in the afternoon to have a drink... More

During our recent vacation in Northern Italy we stayed in large 5* star hotels each night, but when we arrived in tiny Varenna we were looking forward to a different type of lodging experience. This small, down to earth B & B/hotel did not disappoint. The beautiful lakeside location is perfect. The hotel is tiny, quiet and low key, modestly... More

We found it to be a jewel on the lake! Balconies with views across the lake to the Alps from the hotel terrace with a hearty breakfast and several rooms enjoy that same view. Varenna is a special place and Hotel du lac is a special place within Varenna. If you stay a few days everything is within reach from... More

We loved this place. We had a small balcony on the 3rd floor and the view was fabulous. Varenna is a small and quaint village which we found very friendly, relaxed and enjoyable. The people at the hotel were always very helpful and informative. They even helped us with restaurant choices and reservations. Highly recommended!

We had a four day stay here and it was amazing. Drinks on the Terrence with divine appetizers are the best. Room 25 is large with a small balcony but a good bathroom with a tub. Staff was friendly, helpful and great when you have a train strike. We had to leave very early because of the strike so they... More

We had a wonderful time in Varenna, room 1 was like our own little apartment right on the waterfront. Falling asleep with the sound of the lake and every morning we had a spectacular view of Belaggio, the lake and the mountains. The staff was very friendly and the lunches delicious.

We had a wonderful room with a view of the lake. We could sit on the balcony and watch the ferry coming in. Very gracious staff and comfortable room. The adjoining restaurant was ver good as well. English was spoken.

We had a great stay at Hotel Du Lac. It is surely one of the most romantic hotels in Como Lake. We spent three nights in room 1. From the small balcony we enjoyed an unforgettable sunset. The staff is always helpful and friendly. We will definitely go back to this small gem in Varenna.

stayed in this hotel for 3 nights, the room we stayed in was comfortable but smelt of sewerage, they should really get the drainage looked at, not very approachable or sympathetic to complaints, there are many other lovely hotels closeby, so stay somewhere else Car park is expensive, and dangerously narrow to negociate
