Although it's been several years (travel choices on this site didn't go back to May 2013!) since we were here, it was a memorable and elegant beginning to our time in Italy. The weather was lovely--rainy early evening, fresh and sunny and gorgeous the next morning! Gelato tasted better eaten while strolling along Lago di Como. My sister, Lucia, was... More

The air conditioning worked like a champ, given the temps in the 90s, it was godsend. The location is gorgeous, the grounds are beautiful, the staff professional and attentive, and the room was quiet and comfortable. The downside, rooms are outfitted like a motel 6--cheap laminate flooring, plastic faux wood trim, Ikea-like furnishing. But the bed was comfortable and the... More

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
