Beautiful property in the quiet town of Varenna on Lake Como. Everything in town is walking distance from this lovely boutique style hotel. Breakfast on the terrace was exquisite- fresh and neatly presented. Our room had a terrace over looking the lake. Staff was very helpful for any thing we needed for our room and making arrangements for an early... More

We stayed in room 32 in late August. Not a sweeping view of the lake, but a spacious room by European standards and a small balcony that had two chairs adequate to sit and read. There was plentiful shelf space for clothing and other needs, but the closet could have used a few more hangers. A safe was provided for... More

Hotel Du Lac is wonderful, it is situated on the lake edge in a lovely quiet part of Varenna. It is a bit of a hike from the station. Lake view is a must. We had 2 rooms during our stay as we decided to stay an extra night after our initial booking. The first one (33) was large and... More

We booked this hotel in March for our September 4 night stay in Varenna. We were told no full lake view rooms were available and agreed to a booking of a partial lake view at 200 euros a night. The hotel is beautiful with a breakfast terrace overlooking the lake, attentive and helpful staff, and waterfront location. Our room left... More

My wife and I spent four nights at Hotel du Lac at the end of August/beginning of September 2014. As the name suggests, the Hotel is located in a lovely setting directly ON the lake. With our windows open at night you could hear the waves gently hitting the shore....so much so that I had several dreams of the water!... More

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!
