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. A real jewel in the crown for the area. the most exceptional thing about this hotel apart from the wonderful place of Varenna and the wonderful location of the hotel was the staff. Staff make any hotel and these guys were keen to help with everything we... More

Excellent hotel and staff. Clean, elegant and historically beautiful. Had to wake up early and the local bars were not open yet for a cafe, asked for one downstairs near the restaurant area and presented with a €4 bill for a typical €1.20-1.50 cappuchino. Wow, that put a sour taste on an otherwise pleasant visit.

The hotel itself is very nice and perhaps one of the best in Varenna. rooms were ok, a little small but nice view of the lake, location good etc. There were some serious annoyances though: Firstly, we paid a pretty high price because it had a pool a great terrace, a nice restaurant and a spectacular view. We checked in... More

Dear Guest, We're afraid if you disliked some aspects of your stay by us. We always try to do the best to welcome all our guests at best. We don't know what happened during your check out, the bills are always ready in the early morning, maybe there were an inconvience. Very sorry for that! More

This hotel has so much character on the outside and inside, but the renovations recently made were outstanding. The hotel kept its integrity, which a lot of renovations fail to produce. We stayed in a balcony-view room and had a patio where we could enjoy coffee in the morning and wine in the afternoon/evening. We also went to the local... More

Only 5 minutes from the train station. We stayed in a Lake View room with the large balcony. It was absolutely beautiful (although adding a bath to the bathroom would be a nice touch). The bed was comfortable and the room a decent size for European standards. The hotel staff were nice and the breakfast was pretty good, it could... More

Just returned from 4 nights having attended a family wedding. Hotel is in excellent condition , rooms clean , breakfast excellent and the views from the bedrooms / swimming pool area/ restaurant are breath taking - I cannot think of a better view anywhere on Lake Como. Easy walk to Ferry ( 10 mins ) and plenty of decent restaurants... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel in late May. Overall, the hotel was a wonderful place to stay while exploring Vareena and Lake Como. The view from our room was breathtaking. The restaurant, bar and common areas were extremely well appointed and took full advantage of the hotel's commanding position on the lake. The rooms were updated and... More
