This is my 3rd stay at this hotel. I always look forward to returning here. I stayed for 12 days and i have already booked my stay for next summer! It is an old- school renovated hotel dating back to the 1800's, in a stunning setting right on Largo di Como. Staff are warm helpful people. My room is immaculate.... More

Perfect place to stay if you are looking for relax. Nice village, beautiful views and a perfect place to stay. Ask for a lake views room. Wifi didn't work properly but in this place maybe it was better.

The Royal Victoria is a fine old establishment on the banks of Lake Como in Varenna. It has a fantastic lakeside restaurant at the back and a grill that spills out onto the picture-postcard town square to the front. We opted for the pizzas with a local wine recommended by our charming waitress, Federica. Just: Wow! The Food was simple,... More

We spent a very enjoyable week at the Royal Victoria. The hotel is in a glorious location overlooking the lake; we had an amazing view from our balcony. Our room was clean and pleasant - although the decor was oddly dark; it would have been much nicer in a lighter colour - with a well equipped bathroom. (One minor annoyance... More

Great location and views especially from lake-view rooms (though you have to pay for parking 200 yards away). Helpful, friendly staff, excellent food. But no wardrobes in any of the recently-renovated (and quite expensive) rooms?!

My wife and I booked this hotel at the very last minute, after having arrived at our reserved room and finding it well below great. The Royal Victoria was able to accommodate us at a great rate (1 November 2014), in a room that had a terrace looking out upon the lake. My wife and I sat in awe of... More

We stayed here for a 30th birthday trip, and we couldn't have enjoyed it more. Varenna is a great town - we preferred it to Bellagio and Menaggio - and the hotel is in a great location within that. The hotel itself is classic old Italy, very charming, romantic and perfect setting on the lake; our balcony had a fantastic... More

The hotel is ideally situated and the lake view room is a must. The room is convenient but a little pricy for its size. The bathroom is rather small too and there is no space for a cosmetic bag. The dinner was fine and the swimming pool environment is beautiful. Service is professional but could be slightly warmer at the... More

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.
