Stayed here the first night after flying into the country. Maybe a bit jet lagged so didn't really take time to appreciate the gardens. It is a ways from the train station so arrange a taxi. Clean room. Breakfast room is a fun one to find. Would stay here again.

After a long flight and a train ride we arrived in Varenna on Lake Como. The Villa Capressi was a pleasant surprise. Our room was large especially by European standards, but very bland. The extra space and the view made up for it. And the gardens were magnificent. It was easy to walk around town. The breakfast was one of... More

I have the best room at the hotel as it has a balcony and view of the lake. The staff is really nice and helpful. The hotel was built in 1400 so it has a weird old smell (yes - they need to change the carpet). I stayed directly above the restaurant and the garden area where they host lots... More

The rating may seem a little harsh to some but this is a review of Villa Cipressi from the perspective of a Hotel guest. My reason for visiting this property was to attend a wedding and as a wedding guest I thoroughly enjoyed the wedding. The wedding reception, food and service we all very good and if that had been...

Amazing property with gorgeous gardens. Rooms are very very bland and average. Would expect better for this hotel. Beautiful lake views. 5 min walk to town center. Didn't eat at restaurant. However the included continental breakfast was good. This hotel does have an elevator which is a plus for luggage. Most hotels in Varenna do not have elevators.

A lovely hotel with beautiful gardens to relax in, right on the lake. The town is also lovely, it has a ferry terminal to other parts of the lake, lots of places to have a drink near the water. The dinner we had at the hotel was fantastic, and the service all round was great.

My husband and I were married here 2 yrs ago and have returned each anniversary. The service is impeccable. They go above and beyond to help you with any outside reservations or adventures. Easy access to restaurants and the ferry. Beautiful views and fantastic restaurant!!! Can't say enough.

We attended a wedding at this Villa and stayed for four nights. Our room had lake stunning views and was clean and very comfortable. The staff went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. The wedding was wonderful and the small town provided ample bars and cafes for all our needs. The villa is set within 5 minutes... More

We arrived via train into Varenna to spend a few days in Varenna. Hotel Villa Cipressi was recommended as well as requesting a lake view. We were not disappointed with these suggestions. The hotel is centrally located in the small village with easy walks to restaurants and the ferry to other places on Lake Como. The room was comfortable with... More

Stayed 6 nights in Aug 2014 for our best friend's wedding. The wedding reception was a dream. Most beautiful setting. From the tea light candles in the fountain to the glistening lake in the moonlight - it was perfect! Our room had a great view of the lake! We loved Davide on reception too. Breakfast was good! Hot chocolate was... More
