The Royal Victoria is located in a very cute little town, in the center of it. Rooms with lake view are 40 euros more expensive, but really worth it for the view, but also a little bit because the other side is closer to the church bells... The building itself is historic and beautiful. The restaurant is a little outdated... More

Dear guest, It has been a pleasure to welcome you. We're are glad to know you enjoyed your stay. The balconies on the second floor are 110cm high because of security reasons. Since our building is an historical location, we modify them to let our guests see the lake as the Superintendence for Architectural and Landscape Heritage of Milan allowed... More

Stayed at Royal Victoria with my wife in april 2015. Not a lot of visitors at that time of the year, was calm and nice. The hotel has a wonderful garden that we enjoyed a lot, the view is beyond fantastic. The breakfast was nice and the staff were helpful. Parking were arranged in a parking house nearby. The atmosphere... More

Stayed in this hotel for 2 days, got the room with the great view on Como. Rooms are well equipped and modern! That's not a common thing in hotels around the lake. The only thing it misses is bath. Breakfast is amazing! Original tasty latte and variety of ham made me completely happy. What is really amazing about this hotel... More

The Royal Victoria is a grand old hotel perfectly situated on the town square in Varenna and offering magnificent views of Lake Como. And the staff is equally impressive. After leaving the hotel and returning home I discovered I had not only left my computer cord in the room, I had also left a sweater at the restaurant where we... More

A short visit by family to consider wedding venues for next year was spent in this delightful little hotel on the shores of Lake Como. The accommodation was basic but very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The staff were very hospitable and the welcome was terrific. The bistro restaurant was excellent and there is a more gourmet style restaurant which we... More

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.

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.
