This aging hotel is right at the ferry dock. Many people speak about how wonderfully convenient that is, but it is also incessantly noisy. There are lovely views of the lake from the hotel, but the restaurant is on the ground floor and the views are not particularly good from there. The proprietor, Laura, is a key feature of the...

Wife and I celebrated an important anniversary here over four days in late May 2015. We actually stayed in room 8 in the Villa Torretta next door, part of the same complex. Our room, while not large, was comfortable, with big French doors leading out to a balcony overlooking the auto ferry dock and the lake. It was, however, 41... More

Perfect charming atmosphere, like stepping back in time. The antiques inside give it a homey feel. Staff are lovely and very helpful. Breakfast was great and served outside if warm enough. Secure car park. Location is right in front of the ferry terminal so after a long day sight seeing it was great to step off and grab a cold... More

We reserved a superior double with lake view. The room was spacious with a fantastic view of the lake. We had two door size double windows overlooking the lake. One had a small balcony, but big enough for two chairs. The windows face west so you an see sunsets over the lake. The location was excellent - right at the... More

Pros: great location, overlooking the beautiful lake, Menagio city and the Alps! A 10 minute walk from the main station and next to the ferry station. Clean, posh and great lake views (if you choose to stay in a room with a view) Cons: very slow elevator. One person at a time can enter the elevator and it takes forever... More

My wife and I spent a few days at the Hotel Olivedo and were very pleased. The room was large, clean, and the mattress was soooo comfortable. Oh, and WHAT A VIEW of Lake Como from our balcony. In addition, we had an early departure, but the host went out of her way to assist by setting up the taxi... More

My husband and I visited the Lake Como area in April and we stayed at the Hotel Olivedo. It was wonderful! I saw this hotel on tripadvisor and knew that it was the place I wanted to stay. It did not disappoint! We had a wonderful room with a balcony looking out onto the Lake and Ferry Dock. Yes, it... More

We loved our stay in this charming hotel. Laura the proprietress was so very attentive and made sure we were happy with our stay. We will definitely stay again. We also ate in the hotel restaurant. The omelette was fantastic and wine selection and prices were outstanding. The views of the lake are wonderful and access to the ferry was... More

This is a fine old hotel that's convenient to the train station and ferry, but about a 10-minute walk from the Varenna's old town center. So whether you prefer it will be based on your priorities. Everybody who visits Lake Como rides the ferry, and the hotel is right at the loading area. But that also gives the location a... More

When we arrived I thought the noise from the ferry was going to be an issue, but it was fine we were out sightseeing during the day and the boats stop running at night. The room had good double glazing. The view of the lake from our room was wonderful. I would recommend booking a lake view room. We had... More
