We stayed at this gorgeous property in September 2013 and I left my iPad behind. David quickly emailed me and arranged to have it sent to my aunt in Athens, where I would be visiting later. They surely went WAY out of their way to do so and we were very impressed with their help! Besides that, our stay was... More

We have stayed at Hotel Villa Cipressi at least 4 or 5 times while visiting Varenna. We just returned from a recent visit and as always we are more than delighted. Davide at the front desk always makes us feel as if we are returning home. He is the best. The service is impeccable. Whatever they can do for us... More

We spent three nights here in early October. The room was absolutely wonderful with a lake view. It had everything you could want. The grounds are beautiful and should not be missed. The staff was very helpful and professional. The breakfast was exactly what you expect to get in europe. Coffee, tea, juice, pastries and bread, salami/ham and cheese, yogurt,... More

We stayed here for two nights and liked our stay very much. The building is absolutely great with a fantastic atmosphere, very historical. The room we were staying had partial lake view and was fully equipped with everything you need. Very friendly staff. The only disappointing thing was the breakfast. In such a place you would expect to have it... More

We just had our wedding there back in August and I cannot be thankful enough for the beautiful location, wonderful food, attentive staff service and the great gardens, overlooking the scenic mountains, lush green landscapes and colourful flowers dotted around the coast of the Lake of Como. All this compiled the backdrop of the most wonderful set of wedding photos... More

My wife and I had the impression that the Management here were coasting along, relying on the great views from the bedrooms and the lakeside position. Our bathroom with shower was rather tired and on two evenings there was no hot water! Unacceptable in these times.

We were very excited to come to the Villa Cipressi since they are renowned for their wonderful gardens. The gardens are wonderful....the hotel not so much. The rooms are small and if you don't have a view of the lake it is really not worth staying. They don't offer parking, they don't help with the luggage, and the wifi works... More

Lovely location overlooking Lake Como. On the plus side: Room was a nice size and the view over the lake is spectacular, good bathroom with lots of shelf space, decent shower. Staff is friendly. Not so great: There are no places to sit outside overlooking the lake. When I booked this hotel I envisioned being able to sit outside reading... More

The Villa Cipressi was a pleasant surprise and made for a great experience. The location is very close to the old town plaza and next to the must see Villa Monastaro and it's gardens. Their restaurant rates as one of the best we had in 12 days in Italy. Be sure to get a room with a great view of... More
