We stayed two nights in this hotel (but would not hesitate to stay longer) in May 2014. We arrived close to midnight, but nonetheless the reception manager was kind enough to show us to a free parking (about 500 meters away). The hotel is occupies an old building, but the interiors have been tastefully remodeled. The wi-fi was excellent. The... More

We stayed at 4 hotels around the lakes, and this one was the least pleasant we had in its category. The beddings were of poor quality, the mattress was very uncomfortable and gave us back pain for two days. The room was pretty small and extremely noisy, so was the A/C. The bathroom was small and unpractical. However, our room... More

In our first stop of a tour through Italy, it was wonderfully quiet. Our room was a double with a balcony lake view. The hotel has just undergone renovations and it shows with new doors, flooring and trim throughout. There are some minor flaws but over all it is a beautiful hotel with modern touches. As an energy conscious hotel... More

We chose Varenna for our holiday as this is the most scenic & quite places around Lake Como compared to Bellagio or Mennagio and this hotel best fitted our budget. It is beautifully located in the center of Varenna. Its a short walk up to the ferry terminal (~10 minutes) & all the restaurants in Varenna facing the lake .... More

We stayed at hotel Victoria for 5 nights. We were planning on 4 nights but my wife and daughter so enjoyed this area of Italy that I extended our stay to 5. Hotel is well located, and renovated within the last two years, I believe. After the first three nights, on my request, we were upgraded to a lakefront suite,... More

We found this Hotel and the city through the advice of one of our Italian colleagues. Both really exceeded our expectations. The hotel is really well-led, you can feel it. The staff are very courteous, from checking in to checking out, where the staff gave us bottles of water for our trip home, and a discount voucher for coming back.... More

We have just returned from an 11 day stay at the Royal Victoria Hotel in Varenna, Lake Como, our first visit to this lake. Varenna is a picture-postcard lakeside small village, with lovely side streets, lakeside walk and great views across the lake. In our view it is by far the prettiest of the mid Lake Como villages, but be... More

My wife and I have just returned from a 7 night stay, great location and nice room with lake view. Particularly appreciated the care and attention provided by Lavio and his team, can't praise them enough. Room was clean, we'll decorated but a bit small. Would have like coffee/tea making facilities in the room as one would expect of a... More

I booked lake como to celebrate my 40th birthday. As the lake has so many different places to stay you never really know until you arrive if the location and accommodation will be the right choice. Varenna and Royal Victoria are both totally amazing and exceeded my expectations. We had a top floor lake view room which if you can... More

Extremely nice hotel, we had room to the piazza but hotel has really nice terrace and backyard for enjoying views on the Lake Como. Service was good and our room was really modern and nicely renovated. We had dinner on both restaurants and food is great.
