We stayed a week in room 10, a superior room with large terrace. The bed was comfortable. Hotel staff is very friendly, helpful and speaks very good English. As others have said, the hotel sits in a marvelous location for panoramic lake views facing Bellagio. It is handy for walking around town and close to many restaurants. Breakfast was very... More

I wish I could give his hotel a double rating-- it's in a beautiful location, their hotel staff were very helpful and polite, and terrace for breakfast has a fantastic view over Lake Como. BUT, and it's a big but, we booked a double room with lake view and small balcony, and while we did get that it was on... More

My wife, daughter and I just stayed at the Hotel du Lac and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The room on the top floor had a full lake view balcony and our daughter had a separate part of the room to call her own. Not only was the hotel itself full of charm, but Varenna was great and the service from... More

Our first trip to Lake Como was made special by the wonderful location of Hotel du Lac. We had a room on the top floor with a small balcony overlooking the terrace and lake, we couldn't have asked for a better view. The staff was friendly and helpful and the room was nicely furnished and very clean. The buffet breakfast... More

Situated in a fairly central location. Everything is close by. View from our room 24 stunning. Room was comfortable and clean and decor quite quaint. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We stayed in the old part of the hotel which does not have a lift so if mobility is a consideration you should check out the new part.... More

Hotel du Lac is a quaint hotel just steps away from the village square. The staff is friendly and full of helpful hints for your stay in Varenna. The hotel serves a very nice breakfast (included) on the terrace overlooking the lake. In the evenings, you can sit on the same terrace and order a drink. It will be served... More

We stayed a week at the du Lac and it was top class in all respects: lakeside location with great views, very friendly staff (have Janet in the bar mix you a famous du Lac cocktail, as you relax on the Terrace). Rooms are a good size with balcony. A short walk down to waterfront cafés and shops or up... More

This was our second time to Hotel Du Lac in Varenna which says a lot in itself. (See our previous review in 2012) This is a family run small hotel but we found that it was of the highest quality for the price. The view from our bedroom were second to none and we spent a great deal of time... More

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...
