Good choice if decided to stay in Varenna (which is rarely advisable). A very nice garden facing the lake. Lack of parking is a minus explained by topography of Varenna, although the large public garage is just few minutes away.

Dear Guest, We're glad you enjoyed your stay by us. The public garage, where we also have our own private garages, has been built to help tourists and local people parking since Varenna is a small village on a cliff. More

The hotel has a Pizzeria at the front of the hotel supplemented by a glass walled dining room in the square. The food and service here are excellent and the pizzas are the best in town. However the real gem is the main dining room in the basement of the main hotel. Ask for a window seat in the winter... More

Italian Restaurant right across the street served homestyled dishes. Loved loved this Hotel and great Varenna! A leisure walk took us to the ferry where we took to Mennagio and... More

Nice room our view of the lake, small beach and pool area was outstanding for our first 3 days in Italy. Breakfast was massive with fresh fruit, eggs, bacon, assorted meats and cheeses. We did not eat at the restaurant but the menu looked good. Ferry launch is a short down hill walk from the hotel. Many near by restaurants... More

Spent one night in a large lake view room. Beautiful patio. Raining but no worries, as it was covered with a roof. Ate two meals in the restaurant. Very good. If you like pizza, it has a great selection. Staff very professional but friendly. Great location. Easy access. Not having to climb stairs and more stairs like some places. Would... More

I suppose the ultimate endorsement for a hotel is whether a guest would stay there again. My answer is: "yes" Stayed there for 4 nights during 2nd week Oct15. What I like: - Location*. It is in central square and really close to 4 main Varenna sights: Chiesa di S. Giorgio, Chiesa di S. Giovanni Battista, Villa Monastero and Villa... More

Lovely cocktail and wine, the bar snacks were very generous and quite unexpected. The service was friendly but slow, I'm starting to think that perhaps that's an Italian thing. Great location in central Varenna and the views are superb. Enjoy!

You couldn't ask for a more centrally located hotel in Varenna. It's right off the main street and a quaint little stone church sits directly across from the front doors. The hotel is located right on the lake and even has a beautiful swimming pool. Too bad it was overcast, drizzling and a wee bit cold for our stay. The... More

From reading reviews of other writers, and our own experience, I would say only stay at this hotel if you can get the lake view, or if you don't mind street noise. The hotel is very nice and the location is good. However, we were on the church side of the hotel and had to keep our windows open for... More
