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.

My husband and I began our Italian vacation at Royal Victoria and we could not have had a better place to stay. The views were fabulous as well as the food at the hotel restaurant. The staff was very helpful, informative and friendly.

My husband and I enjoyed a four night stay in the Royal Victoria. Our room on the top floor had a nice little balcony with a stunning view of Lake Como. The room was cheery, the bed was large and comfortable, and the bathroom was modern and roomy. The staff was friendly and accommodating...and spoke English very well. The breakfast,... More

Just back from a 3 night stay in this hotel. Paid extra for a lake view room, which I would definitely recommend. View is fantastic. Staff are friendly and helpful, hotel is nicely decorated. The garden area is well kept and the pool is nice but it's not heated so a shock to the system when you jump in, Even... More

This hotel was wonderful. Situated in a charming piazza, it includes nice grounds in back with a small swimming pool, lovely tables under an arbor for an afternoon aperative and even a small beach on the amazingly beautiful lake. Our room (110) was small but about the normal size for Europe. It had a small Juliet balcony with one of... More

We booked this hotel for 6 nights with 2 rooms and lake views. We were not disappointed. The rooms were first class, the food for breakfast and dinner was excellent quality and plenty of it. However my rating goes to the staff for their excellent attention to detail and the helpfulness. Our luggage was lost and they could not do... More

We would highly recommend this hotel. Both Varenna and the hotel are well placed to reach Bellagio, Menaggio & Lenno. The service we received from all the Staff was excellent (particularly in the Restaurant from Livio, Lorenzo & the rest of their team), we were staying half-board for 7 nights and the food was excellent, not one bad meal.
