Stayed here for 5 nights. The hotel is easy to find. 10 minutes walk from the station. The hotel is clean but a bit tired looking as you first walk in. The rooms seem to have been recently done up. We requested a lake view room. The view is incredible. Words cannot describe it. We've been all over the world... More

After considerable research for where to stay for our 3 nights at Lake Como, we chose Varenna and the Royal Victoria. Both were excellent choices. We chose to splurge in a lake-front room. The room itself was quite large but a little bare. However, nothing could have compared with the breathtaking view from our balcony. With only one morning of... More

My husband and I just spent 3 nights at Royal Victoria and all staff members were professional, friendly and helpful. As I have special dietary requirements (gluten free) they ensured I was able to eat all of my meals without any problems. There is a wide choice of menu items and the meals we both had were delicious. Compliments to... More

I stayed at Royal Victoria in late July 2013 after my reservation at a neighboring hotel was so disappointing. I then returned around August 7 for a second stay of about 9 days. Another great experience! I can't say enough good about the hotel and the staff 1. The staff- Barbara, Stephania, Francesca, Martin in the Grill, the casual restaurant-... More

We went to this restaurant tonight for dinner. We were the first guests to arrive and had lovely lake views. The restaurant was a bit bright and sterile however. It would be good to see to the lights dimmed and music played. It was very clean though. Another two guests arrived and were seated right next to us and one... More

I made a last minute booking for me and a friend at this lovely small hotel in the main square of Varenna. The staff were all great and the hotel is well organised and spotless. The breakfast was very good and the views to the lake peaceful. Nice pool. Highly recommend.

A lot of potential: Historic hotel in the lovely village of Varenna; own garden, swimming pool, and direct access to the lake, via a small (public) beach. But: -breakfast is messy and in a uninspired room (again, a lot of potential (great view), but so dull, such ugly colours). Staff is friendly, but inspired/unmotivated. Lack of table-cleaning after guests finished... More

We had changed our plans and traveled to Lake Como , booking this hotel by chance. It turned out to be the most perfect stay - a suite with a balcony and Lake view with all the modern conveniences. The breakfast was lovely, the staff extremely friendly and accomodating, and the free wifi a plus. This hotel is very grand... More

Overall a great stay. We booked for one night and ended up staying for two. We had one of the lake view rooms - quiet, spacious, recently renovated and clean. The receptionists were wonderfully helpful and friendly, and the restaurant downstairs was great for a quick, tasty late night meal (recommend the lasagne, which had lasagne sheets so thin they...
