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

We're staying here now. Can't say enough about how great all the staff members from the front desk, management, breakfast/aperitivo room, housekeepers. The place is spotless, rooms generously sized and well appointed (although would have liked coffee/tea facilities in room). Fabulous view over the lake from our room (24) with a small balcony. Also great view of lake/mountains from breakfast... More

The Hoel Du Lac, Varenna, is a small hotel right on the lake, about a block from the town square. It does offer paid parking at 16 Euro/day (There is also a city parking garage 2 blocks away, so you might leave your car there for less. In Varenna and the local area, you don’t really need a car, and... More

Five stars is not enough to describe the remarkable experience we had staying at Hotel du Lac in Varenna. We usually stay elsewhere, but were "forced" to change to this hotel. We will never go anywhere else!!!!! Absolutely perfect location right on Lake Como with stunning views, especially from their patio which also served as part of their breakfast room,... More

The hotel has a lovely terrace with nice lake views. Unfortunately we did not know that room #1 received bad reviews in this otherwise well reviewed hotel. Room one is almost right at water level - outside the main hotel building. The room is damp and has a lake smell. We asked to change rooms and were told that the... More

Friendly and helpful staff. The hotel sits directly on Lake Como with a view of the mountains and Bellagio. The patio bar ( also used for breakfast) also has a great view of the lake and makes for a good start before going to dinner. All shops , restaurants and the ferry dock are all within an easy walk.
