We had a great room with a balcony in the front of the Hotel, overlooking the lake. There was a hotel swimming pool but we preferred to just swim in the lake (Como). Buffet breakfast was good without being exceptional. We travelled in a group; some of the group had quite small rooms so it would be advisable to request... More

A second visit to both Varenna and the recently renovated Royal Victoria with lake view rooms affording one of the best views imaginable. Having stayed in a standard lake view room previously this time opted for one of their junior suites which was very spacious with large balcony, and facilities one would expect from a four star hotel. The Gourmet... More

We had a superior double room with lake view. A very nice room with comfortable beds and a nice big shower. The balcony had a small table and two chairs. Although we didn't use it loads, it was very nice when we did. The room was kept tidy and we had fresh towels every day. We were offered free WiFi... More

A well positioned, beautifully appointed hotel in Varenna on Lake Como. The staff are very professional yet warm and friendly. We had a lovely room overlooking the lake and I would say this is a must, if you have come all the way to experience the lake. The only small draw back is that the bed was a little hard... More

Spectacular hotel with gourgeous view of the lake with a beautiful pool. Excellent service. Special thanks to Barbara and Alex for all their help. Varenna quiet town with great restaurants. Small supermarket near with good fruit. Highly recommend.

The Hotel Royal Victoria has the most amazing views, for the misty dawn to the shimmering dusk. We stayed for three nights, eating breakfast and dinner in the restaurant and always seated with the most amazing view over the lake to Bellagio and beyond. The rooms were modern, the food outstanding and the staff very attentive. I highly recommend this... More

We stayed in the Royal Victoria for two nights in Spring, the hotel is really lovely and we had a beautiful room with a view over the town square which was great. Its interesting to watch the comings and goings in the square and its a good option if you don't want to pay the extra fee for a a... More

What a great find. This was a lovely, quiet, traditional style hotel with magnificent views of the lake and mountains. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. The food & wine was very good. The terracing was elegant and well maintained with a choice of a small pool or a dip in the lake itself. The square had local bars... More

We visited at the end of May for 3 nights. We booked a Lakeview room and the one given us was located on the same floor as the lobby down a partitioned off corridor - so no lobby noise. When we opened the window shutters of our room it was a wow moment - such a spectacular view and a... More

Had a wonderful stay with the team at this wonderful property in Varenna.
