Varenna is an extraoridinarily beautiful town by the breathtaking Lake Como and this hotel offers the best location to enjoy both. Our room (133) had its own small terrace where we sat and marvelled at one of the best views in the world. The hotel...is grand place, lots of architectural character but modern facilities. We slept well with our terrace... More

The best feature of this hotel was the meals and the restaurant staff. The accomodation was OK, but frankly we expected more for a 4 star venue. The hotel staff were slightly prickly - certainly not warm nor friendly - and we would have expected to get free WiFi. The rooms were again Ok but no more than that. By... More

We reserved for two nights during the chilly off-season as the online pictures/description make it seem very appealing and frankly it was one of the few hotels that remain open at this time of the year. We were given a room that faced Piazza S. Giorgio and found it to be very spacious, with recent updates in the room floor/furnishings... More

This is quite a nice hotel, but I can't rate it "very good". The location is fabulous, right on the water and also right on the main market square. We were lucky enough to arrive on a day there was a village festival, complete with food and wine stalls, a band and a Punch and Judy show, was fabulous. The... More

Dear Guest, We thank you for your review. It's always usefull for us to know our guests thoughts. We're afraid you think that the hotel public areas are a little musty and older feeling.

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

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
