Staff is very unhelpful with guests. They don't take any insentive to hep locate the rooms, instruct with the use of the funicular and any other guest amenities or tourist info. Air conditioner stopped working in the morning and seems to be an on-going issue. It appears that staff are not interested in working there. Views of the lake and... More

Varenna is located approximately 50 minutes train from the Milan Central Station. A 15 minute walk from Varenna station but an uphill. Taxi costs 12 Euros but if you have baggage then you will need it. Hotel location is fantastic, right on top of the hill overlooking the lake. The rooms are located even further up (we were on the...

What a view! That is really what sets this hotel apart. The hotel has two parts: the lower section which houses the reception and ~20 rooms, and an upper section which is accessed through a long glass-enclosed sloping elevator. Because we were a family of 4 and wanted 2 adjoining rooms, we chose to stay in the lower building, but... More

One of the best stays we had in Europe, this wonderful 3 star hotel is an absolute gem and we would highly recommend to anyone. Located just a short stroll from the centre of Varenna on the side of a hill with the most spectacular views of Lake Como. We booked a superior double room with balcony and they placed... More

The hotel view was amazing, probably the best you will find, however the hotel was a 15 minute walk from the main town up steep hills or you could take a cab for 10 euros. Once you reached the hotel you had to take two funiculars up a cliff depending where you room was located. The lift was extremely hot... More

Just a short five minute walk from the heart of Varenna, this amazing B&B is a perfect choice for your stay in the Lake Como area. The staff is wonderful, the hilltop location is amazing -- what a view! -- and the two funiculars needed to access the rooms are a hoot. Be sure and include this great venue in... More

We stayed on the top floor of this former monastery, and the view was incredible. To get to our room we took two trams and an elevator, so you may want to organize your luggage so you only need one bag. Front desk service at the hotel was good, they helped with our ongoing reservations. Service and food in the... More

I would give a 4.5 - the views are unbelievable! I think you'd be challenged to find a better view anywhere in Italy, or beyond. The room we stayed in was up 2 funiculars, so we were quite high of the lake, which was amazing! The hotel has a beautiful terrace on that level, which was nice to relax on... More

This hotel and town were one of my favorites on our entire trip across Europe in July of 2014! It is the hardest hotel to get to in the town since it is at the very top of the town, but when we arrived and looked out over Lake Como, it was apparent why people made the effort to come... More
