This hotel has a beautiful garden terrace and courtyard overlooking Lake Como. We had a spectacular room with a view of the lake and the hotel gardens below. Located in the center of Varenna it is a wonderful site from which to base many walks to explore the city and the mountains. The building dates from centuries ago and yet... More

We stayed in room 216, with a view of the lake. It was a large room with twin beds on the lower level and a sleeping loft above with a bed for two. It was a Saturday night, but didn't seem crowded or busy with a wedding. Beautiful garden grounds and a nice breakfast buffet with outdoor seating. Didn't have... More

My wife and I just completed our second stay at the Hotel Villa Cipressi in the village of Varenna. All the beauty and quirky elegance (2nd floor is on two levels) we remembered of this converted villa are still present. The hotel was full of activity, as we were there during the June wedding season. Rather than being put off... More

We stayed at this hotel as part of a Rick Steves tour. The hotel itself is an old Villa with beautiful gardens and grounds full of flowers and plants, amazing views of Lake Como. Located right off the city square, close to a grocery store, pharmacy and restaurants. You have to hike a little bit to get to the ferry... More

From helping us with hiking arrangements, to helping track down our lost bag, to preparing a personal breakfast for the vegan (homemade croissants and soy cappuccinos every morning!!!) they were so generous with us.

We booked to have our wedding at Villa Cipressi along with a stay of 3 nights, and several of our family and friends staying there for different lengths of time too. We booked the whole hotel exclusively for our wedding night which was great as it meant there was no other guests lurking around. The hotel is just beautiful, rustic... More

You'll never find a hotel more authentically Italian than this. The gardens are among the best in all of Lake Como, and exploring the maze that leads to breakfast is like stepping back in time. The rooms are incredibly spacious, ours had a fantastic view of the lake. The staff is incredibly friendly & more than willing to help about... More

we stayed here in mid-May, the weather was beautiful and this hotel is lovely. It is large with a bright, open lobby with a grand staircase leading up to the rooms. But don't worry, there is an elevator! there are beautiful gardens with pathways to explore leading along the lake. a lovely breakfast is served downstairs with an outdoor terrace,... More

The best 3-star We have ever visited with a lake & garden terrace view. The restaurant was excellent. Would have said the same for the room if you have picked the right one. The first one stank like rotten anchovies but the next one was excellent. Parking was close by from across the street but will cost you 20 euro... More
