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

By far the best experience we had with a hotel and its staff (even the four star rated hotels). Other writer comments are dead on with the observations on the furnishings and authentic Italian feel of the Hotel and dining room. We had a third floor room with a balcony (small but able to stand comfortably on with a beverage... More

This hotel owns an adjacent building called Ville Torretta with 6 or 8 rooms. That's where we stayed and it was awesome. It's beautifully appointed with period furniture, big bathroom with shower, dressers and an armoire. You can actually unpack and put your clothes away! The views are amazing and the little town has a ferry very conveniently outside the... More

I'm glad to see that the Hotel Olivedo has received recent good reviews, after a series of minor negative comments from customers. We spent three days in mid-September at the Olivedo. Quirky may be a good description, but the hotel is authentic, in a great location, very clean, and convenient to train station and ferry dock. Much is mentioned about... More

After a horrendous four days of trying to get our tickets due to a very inept travel planner that we hired who messed up every plan we had, Laura saved the trip for us. We arrived after standing in line 4 hours at the Milan train station trying to get new tickets, we missed our train, got on the next... More
