Let me say right up front that this hotel is not the most expensive in town, but it is definitely not cheap. But it is worth every dime!!! Great location, great service, and a great breakfast - - - on a beautiful patio overlooking the lake. On the floor below the lobby is a balcony where we drank prosecco and... More

Room was spacious, pay the extra money for the view. Amazing views. Great lunch. Probably the biggest mussels I HAVE EVER HAD. Location is perfect. Right on the promenade and in front of the water taxi.

The hotel is a bit expensive but its worthy, every morning when you wake up and look at the lake, it is like living in a dream, the town is small but there is so much beauty you just want to walk around, the hotel is clean and the staff is friendly, the breakfast can be a bit better

Stayed here at tail end of summer season (October) and it was very quiet. Hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating. Room was two singles on first floor with master upstairs in a loft - a little hard to get used to. Views were great at the hotel but not essentially from our room.

My husband and I enjoyed 5 days in Varenna at Hotel du Lac. It was our first visit to Lake Como and we traveled by train. Varenna is very convenient from Milan, and the hotel is a short taxi ride or accessible by foot from the train station. The town is small yet full of restaurants and cafes, many of... More

This is a wonderful place to stay in Varenna. It is a long walk down the main road in town upon arrival with luggage, but very doable. The hotel booked us a taxi for the return trip back to the train station. The front desk was wonderful about giving us an overview of the town and helping us to book... More

I just returned from my very first trip to Lago di Como and choose to stay in Varena & at Hotel Du Lac. This hotel was fabulous! It is located right on the lake. I was in room 324 which had a balcony and spectacular view of the lake. The room was comfortable and the bathroom was a bit small,... More

Hotel Du Lac was a lovely retreat for the start of our month in Italy. Situated on the lake with a beautiful view, the hotel wins praise. The staff was helpful with our suitcases arriving at our door right after check in. Breakfast is served over looking the lake where diners can eat inside or outside. There's a lovely patio... More

We arrived in Varenna after a hectic few days in Milan, and couldn't have picked a better place to stay. From the moment we arrived, each member of the staff was friendly and helpful. We had a room with a small balcony and it could not have been a better view of the lake. The balcony was small, but the... More

Spent our first night in Varenna at this hotel. Arrived tired and jet lagged but the huge patio off our room woke us right up! We didn't want to miss a second of lounging on the patio soaking in the beauty of Varenna and Lake Como. Our room was large, clean and nicely decorated. Breakfast was great. The staff were... More
