In this hotel, the motto should be "you get what you get and you don't get upset" Really, No idea on how the management think when it comes to customer satisfaction. I know a lot of the readers would reply by the need of lowering service expectations when you take a trip to Italy and book a standard room in... More

We loved the spectacular view of Lake Come from the patio just outside of our room which made our stay at this hotel extremely enjoyable. The breakfast area, also having a spectacular view of the lake was also a very nice amenity. Though is was somewhat of a walk from the hotel to town, we didn't mind that as it... More

Amazing views, easy access to town. Rooms were clean and no frills. Breakfast was not the best but you can get basics (hard boiled eggs, crackers and nutella), I would recommend skipping the beverages - none tasted quite right. As every other review says - the views the views the views! You wont regret staying here, but if you found... More

Eventhough we were on the "lower level", this hotel offered absolutely stunning views. Our room, though somewhat outdated, was clean and very adequate. Breakfast was served on the terrasse and offered everything we needed, and again that stunning view. Coming from the south, the hotel is somewhat difficult to find, though it is less than 5 minutes walk from the... More

Would anyone consider going to Lake Como and getting a room with no view? I would not. That is why I chose Eremo Gaudio. It has the most spectacular views of the lake possible. From the reception area, we rode two funiculars and then took an elevator to get to our room. From that perspective, the views of the lake... More

Due to last minute travel plans, we had to change reservations in Bellagio and picked this hotel by complete luck. We absolutely loved the three nights we spent in the Teodolinda Suite. As other reviewers have noted the views are incomparable. We spent many pleasant hours sitting on that balcony enjoying the scenery. If there is a better view on... More

We reserved our three days at Eremo Gaudio because we knew we'd have a car with us (the hotel has parking) and because of what we'd read about the views. The hotel is indeed up a one-lane road with one hair pin turn, but not unusual for Italy, and fine if you're careful. Walking into Vernazza from the hotel took... More

I booked this place not realizing how amazing it would be. It is built right on the side of a cliff. You need to take two funiculars to get to your room. It is fun and well worth it. It is the best kept secret of Italy if you are looking for a unique place to stay. Rooms are basic... More

Spent 3 nights at this hotel in mid September and have to say we never ever expected such a spectacular vista. We had a large suite in the upper building with a lovely spacious terrace - great place to enjoy the sunset over a glass of wine. Most rooms are smaller than the one we had but there isn't a... More
