Hotel Villa Cipressi is located in the wonderful spot on lake Como. I have made a reservation through Booking.com and asked for a double room with the view of the lake. I asked the hotel to confirm if they have that type of the room available. I did not get any response. I have found their direct email address and... More

We made our reservation through booking.com and received a great rate and a room with quite a view of Lake Como. The location is at the end of the town and we loved it! Treat yourself to a dinner at restaurant. The breakfast included everything you need to start your day. The staff was friendly and helpful and spoke wonderful... More

This was a lovely and peaceful place to spend our first nights in Italy. My husband and I enjoyed everything, the view of the lake from our room, the restaurant, and the gardens. A bit of a walk from the train station, but well worth it. The room was comfortable, and the lounge area was pleasant. What a wonderful place... More

Stayed here on a recent trip to Lago di Como and absolutely loved it. Perfect location at the lake shore, beautiful setting, lovely gardens, comfortable rooms, gracious service. We had a room overlooking the lake and we enjoyed the serene vistas in the morning when the fog lifts up to unveil the mountains and the beautiful sunsets in the evenings.... More

We stayed at Villa Cipressi in August. The building and gardens were magnificent and our room overlooked the beautiful lake and Alps. Our room was very clean, quiet and adequate. For breakfast you had the option of either eating in the dining room or out on the balcony, with a reasonable variety. The gardens, set along the shoreline are absolutely... More

We arrived in Varenna by Train at around noon on October 1st. An absolutely beautiful and peaceful place. The hotel was in a lovely spot overlooking the Italian & Swiss Alps across Lake Como. We could look across the lake as the sun set while sipping our wine on the patio; In the morning we would wake to the quiet... More

My husband and I loved our stay here and were lucky enough to get a room with a lake view. The room was bright, cozy and immaculately clean. Davio was especially pleasant and friendly. It was a delight to explore the hotel and the grounds. I also loved waking to the sound of the church bells! We had breakfast on... More

My friend and I (2 older women with mobility problems) took the ferry from Como to Varenna, which was a great way to see part of Lake Como. We called the hotel and ask them to send a taxi to the ferry dock as it is a long climb up the hill to the hotel. It is a lovely spot... More

As you enter the hotel from the street you are immediately impressed with the grandeur of this ancient building. With parts dating back to the 14th century you are sure to be impressed by the beautiful stonework, fountains, statuary and most especially the majestic gardens overlooking Lake Como. We originally booked the standard room with lake view and found it... More

This beautiful Villa Hotel is right on Lake Como and is surrounded by amazing gardens! Staff was very helpful and accomodating, lovely breakfast room and adjacent patio was a great place to start the day. The buffet selection was very good, only minor improvement would be hand crafted coffee/cappuccino drinks as the hotel has a machine for these. WiFi was... More
