Located right next to the ferry terminal but not noisy at all. Great soundproofing. The rooms are quite large and clean although we found the bed and pillows very hard. The breakfasts were adequate but we didn't eat dinner there. The staff were pleasant although Laura, though well spoken and educated, can we quite harsh at times. Great location to... More

Having flown 26 hours from Australia, then two trains from MXP, it was with great relief we arrived in Varenna. Our host saw us walking down from the station, and welcomed us into her wonderful hotel. The rooms were fantastic, with great views of the lake. Our rooms were clean, comfortable, each with recently renovated bathrooms. I would recommend this... More

We spent 2 nights in Hotel Olivedo, Varenna at the end of May 15 and were just sorry we couldn't stay longer. The location is terrific because it is right on the wharf so you just walk from the front door of the hotel on to the wharf from where you can embark unto one of the many small ferry... More

We caught the train from Milan Central Station and within an hour were in Varenna. Just a 5 minute walk from the station was our hotel with the ferry port right outside, which I thought would be noisy. We were staying in a Lake view room at the front of the hotel and the view was magnificent. With the windows... More

We stayed here 3 nights and overall would rate it a good stay. Our room was roomy with a decent sized bathroom. We also had a nice balcony that looked out over the lake. The bed was a bit too hard for my liking but was suitable. Staff was attentive and friendly, especially at breakfast. If in Varenna would stay... More

If you enjoy curtness, bluntness, rudeness, scowling, frostiness, downright obtuseness, stale cigarette smoke & rickety old brown furniture, then you will be right at home in this hotel. If not, you will be forced to spend hours and hours on the naughty step if you don’t fall into line! One star for good location and the other for cleanliness (my... More

We spent a week in June at this hotel and we were looked after royally by Laura and her staff. The hotel is close to the ferry terminus and was a great place for watching the world go by and also visiting other towns on the Lake. We were given a great room with a stunning view over the Lake...

We had 4 nights at the Olivedo and loved every minute. Varenna is a delightful location and this hotel is in a prime location about 15m from the ferry wharf. Our room had a view over the lake, was very comfortable, quiet ( double glazed shutter windows cut out all outside noise), spotlessly clean and though not decorated in a... More

Hotel Olivedo sits on the shore of Lake Como with a ferry stop at your front door. From here you can explore the entire lake with complete ease and comfort. Ferries run all day to Mennagio, Como and Bellagio from Varenna. Each of them deserves a day to enjoy all the pleasures and wonders of the lake. The hotel is... More

Thank you Laura and all of your staff for another wonderful and memorable visit at your Hotel Olivedo. I return here a couple of times a year, this time with a small group of women from Australia. Once again our visit was made fantastic by Laura. The rooms as always were immaculately clean, the furnishings and decor warm, friendly and... More
