You'll love Vareena. Hotel is lovely. Restaurant is great, including the breakfast. We got two free wifi accounts for two rooms with eight devices. Not ideal but after the hotel cost wasn't wanting to spend more on wifi.

We recently stayed 4 nights at the Hotel Royal Victoria. The hotel and rooms are beautiful. Many with sweeping views of Lake Como. The location is great and easy to drive to. Our issues were services or lack there of. When we reserved our Junior Suite paying nearly $500 per night, we expected a top notch hotel and with good... More

I just returned from 3 lovely weeks at Royal Victoria, and it was so great to be back at this hotel. I discovered this lovely hotel last August ( 2013) and had one of the most relaxing vacations ever. This year was no different. I was originally going to stay for 2 weeks but decided to extend my visit. I... More

Beautiful hotel with a gorgeous room. Wifi was great as was the breakfast. Quick walk to restaurants and the ferry which takes you all around Lake Como. Excellent bathroom and shower. Lots of outlets for electronic items. We would stay here again.

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

Dear guest, we're afraid about your review. The beddings are not of poor quality, the mattress are brand new, changed with the new restauration, maybe they're only different from yours. All bathrooms are also new and have all necessary. 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
