We stopped in this hotel because their was a torrential downpour with severe thunderstorms & lightning. We needed to seek cover or risk getting struck by lightning. Our hotel we were staying at was a 20 minute walk from the ferry and we were on foot. We had read about this hotel Olivedo and the owner and thought we would... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in late August, we were given a room on the top floor, the lift only goes to the floor below so we had to drag our cases up a flight of stairs, we were not offered assistance. We could not stand in the shower as the roof was too low so ended up kneeling... More

We stayed in this hotel for three nights. the room was at the end of the building on the top floor and was a good size well furnished with a good sized bathroom. The view from our room over the lake was impressive. The breakfast was basic but did the job. We ate at the restaurant for the 3 nights... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in October. The first impression of the hotel was the very strong smell of smoke (we are non-smokers). I think this was coming from the bar but it was all through the hotel common areas. Our room was on the 3 rd floor overlooking the lake and was entirely adequate. It was large and... More

We originally booked a 4 night stay at this hotel, but at the last minute we increased the booking to 5 nights. Due to changes in travel plans (rail strike in Italy, we decided to cut short our stay to 3 nights and leave early. We paid for the original 4 nights that we had booked. The Manager/Owner (Laura) was... More

We moved to the Hotel Olivedo after spending two nights at another hotel in Varenna. We were so pleased with our room at the Hotel Olivedo after spending two nights in the very smallest of rooms at the other hotel. Our room at the Hotel Olivedo was located just down the alley from the main hotel and was very spacious.... More

We stayed with the lovely Laura and staff for 4 nights in late August 2014. My wife, two kids and I enjoyed an amazing break at this great hotel. First of all Varenna is the place to stay, Bellagio is too commercial and swamped. The location of this hotel is perfect, right by the ferry with which you enjoy an... More

My wife and I spent 3 nights at the Hotel Olivedo. We were in the room 5 minutes and my wife said, "Oh, we have to spend more time here!" The hotel sits right on the edge of Lake Como, with beautiful views out the front and side windows of our room. The room nicely equipped, with all the necessary... More

This is our favourite place to stay in all of Italy. Laura, her family, and staff are always so attentive and helpful. We've been coming back to stay for a week or so every year for 23 years! The Olivedo is a perfect example of a small family-run traditional Italian hotel. The location is perfect, rooms are fabulous and the... More

I just spent a delightful week at the Hotel Olivedo in Varenna. At the beginning, I couldn't decide whether to stay in Bellagio or Varenna, but I'm so glad I chose Varenna and really pleased that I picked the Hotel Olivedo. Firstly, the location can't be beaten - right opposite the ferry terminal - and when I say opposite, I... More
