We did not stay at the hotel but we spent an evening having drinks and admiring the wonderful views from the hotel's bar. Definitely something to do when staying in Varenna. Drinks were great. View was amazing. Very romantic.

There are enough well-deserved raves about the location of this property, its beautiful waterfront breakfast and light lunch terraces, etc. that it's hard to say anything new. Granted that much of Varenna and Lake Como revolves around tourism these days, but even so, I would like to compliment the staff, who were unusually and uniformly gracious, fluent in English yet...

Location in. Varenna is ideal. On the water, with lovely patios. Close to the nightlife area but also tucked away from it. Staff could not have been more helpful with restaurant reservations, car service, box breakfast on departure to airport. Very clean and quiet. The cons: don't drop the soap in the shower because it is too small to bend... More

We had room #1 which had a private entrance next to the hotel. The room itself was large and a nice bathroom with large shower and 8 body sprays, which was really nice. The balcony off our room had 2 small chairs but it was really too small to sit on and there was an odor from the lake near... More

The location of Hotel du Lac is perfect. It's serene, quiet, a views that cannot be beat. We took advantage of the views and requested a lake view with balcony on an upper floor. Our room was very comfortable and quite large. The balcony was larger than the rooms on either side of us so I think perhaps the room... More

We stayed 3 days in this lovely hotel. It was obvious that it had been fairly recently refurbished as the room, and downstairs were lovely. It has probably the best situation in Varenna right on the lakeside with its own landing stage. You can swim from there but whilst we were there a moorhen had taken occupation building a nest...

Great hotel in a stunning location. We had one of the superior rooms, which had a king size bed, a "living room" and a HUGE private balcony which was right on the lake. You could hear the water lapping in the room. This hotel is about a 10 minute walk away from the ferry station, and as such is SUPER... More

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.
