We stayed there early June 2015 for 3 nights. We were supposed to have 3 nights in a balcony but because our travel agent stuffed up our booking we ended up with 2 in a balcony room & one in a standard room. The hotel rooms were very clean and in great condition. There was a quaint balcony that is... More

The hotel du Lac is so worth your while, so romantic, cute - lovely rooms, in a totally spectacular setting. Do book a table at the terrace for Dinner: it's a must! This place is simple but fantastic. You should take it in consideration - worth your extra cost.

We started our 2 week Italy vacation in Varenna at this quaint hotel on the water. The location is so easy to get to from Milan by train. The room was very large, by European standards. Comfortable beds, nice bathrooms and well appointed rooms. We had a balcony overlooking Lake Como, breath taking day and night. Everything is in walking... More

Dropped in to terrace this afternoon for a cocktail on terrace. The British women who says she has been working in Italy for 30 years who served us was so rude and unwelcoming. Lovely place for a drink in the late afternoon overlooking the lake was spoilt by someone who obviously didn't want to be there. Suggest you get out... More

We travelled Italy for our wedding anniversary starting in Sorrento then upto Rome and finally Lake Como for 3 nights and were blown away by the hotel and its location. We arrived very late on our 1st night and we were given room 30 which is next to reception. Our second night we went to bed early and couldn't sleep... More

Hotel Du Lac is a classic enchanting hotel in Varenna. Varenna is a quaint romantic town with beautiful walkways, lush tropical foliage, narrow streets and steep stairways. Hotel Du Lac is located right on lake Como with magnificent views of the lake from the dining room, outdoor seating areas and terraces. Upon our arrival we were warmly greeted by Gaetano.... More

We visited Varenna for a short trip and decided in Hotel du Lac based on previous reviews. It did not disappoint. The room was a little dated but very clean with a good range of toiletries by Fragonard. The room did indeed have a lovely view of the lake but beware that some rooms may have partially obstructed views as... More

After a long flight this was the perfect destination to relax and replenish tired bodies and minds. The quaint room opened out onto a profoundly beautiful lake vista. Very easy access along the lake front to a number of lovely little restaurants and also to the ferry service to enjoy the rest of beautiful Lake Como. Definitely a place to... More

Very unassuming from the outside but a real jewel! We had the room with an attached terrace overlooking the Lake. It was a very good sized room and had a breathtakingly beautiful 360 degree view of the Lake. The breakfast buffet was a nice spread and had some cooked items as well. The service at the Reception was good and... More

We really enjoyed our 2 days at Hotel du Lac. Lovely room with a balcony overlooking the lake. Nice amenities and attentive and helpful staff. Small Italian feel and close to the ferry and the train station. Lovely breakfast area overlooking the lake. We would definitely go back to this hotel.
