The hotel and rooms are perched on the side of a mountain overlooking Lake Como. The views are breathtaking! The views from the hotel restaurant are also fantastic but the quality of the food was lacking. Eat somewhere else. This is not a luxury hotel and it takes some walking to get to the town center, but it was a... More

Wow! What a treat! The hotel is a little walk out and up the hill from the main town but the view is just phenomenal! When we arrived we were asked if we wanted to upgrade our room for one in the top building - it was only ten extra euros and is the best money I have ever spent.... More

We broke up our Como trip and stayed 2 nights in Varenna for a hillside stay and 3 nights in Menaggio, lakeside and in the mix. This hotel is perfect if you want an uninterrupted view of the lake with decent height, you can see so much more. We stayed in the suite, which had a huge balcony and was... More

This hotel has a great view-- this is true. When we arrived we were initially disappointed when we did not get a room at the top level and were loudly reminded by one staff person that we had only booked a standard room; the furnicular was broken for two of the three days when we were there so we ended...

This hotel has a world class view which we could enjoy from our two (!) balconies. Even if our room was fresh, there was a smell in the hallway that wasn't that fresh. Also the bed gave both my wife and I a hurting back. Ok breakfast, but not great. The best part of the hotel was the view and... More

This could be a spectacular hotel but it has some serious flaws...the views are stunning but the rooms are very basic and our room was damp...it is run more like a hostel and that includes the food...Wi-Fi was very unreliable...however the staff were good and this was our second visit and we will probably return but hope the various feedback...

The hotel can boast of the best views of Lake Como BUT- There is no pool. You stand a very good chance of your car being blocked in and there is no chance of identifying who the culprit is. That's if you are lucky enough to get a parking space. The breakfast is indifferent. If starts at 8 and make... More

This hotel is far from everything... It was close to a couple of our hikes but going to dinner and exploring it was not centrally located . T Highly recommend a taxi from the boat or train if you have luggage. Rooms on main floor had nice views and large terrace. rooms up the funicular were spacious and the views... More

Without doubt, the view we had from the spacious balcony of the theolinda suite is in the top ten (and probably top 5) vistas of any hotel I have visited in over 35 years of international travel. I say this despite thunderstorms rolling through the area for our entire visit. Truly breathtaking. The common terrace of the upper building is... More

Varenna is not the cheapest place to stay, from that point of view, this is an excellent choice. The rooms are clean, very clean, and the staff is kind. The restaurant is a good alternative to those in Varenna especially because you don't have to walk back to the hotel. The hotel is divided in two building separated by funicular.... More
