This was our 2nd time at the Eremo and we love it. It's a quirky, unique hotel, about a 5 minute walk from town. It is on a hillside, right on the lake, spread over about 6 floors. There is a glorious terrace on the 4th floor that is fantastic. You take a Unique funicular/little train to get to the... More

Apparently first customer of the season. Upgraded to balcony room and wasn't disappointed. Yes rooms are basic but expcted based previous reviews. Only thing would have changed was the weather... Good walks closeby around hotel to castle and fiumelatte and friendly staff. Recommend

Don't miss this place when visiting Lake Como. The rooms were simple and clean and the service very good. But the view is unmatched. The hotel is way up a hill and may not work for seniors, but well worth the hike for everyone else. Next time we will try to book the building displayed in their advertising, but even... More

We stayed in the Tremezzo Suite for three nights during mid September and I can endorse the previous reviews of this hotel regarding it's outlook. The view was quite amazing, as the sun emerged, tinting the mountains in pink. as it slowly highlighted the colours of Varenna's multi hued buildings, laying out below us. While the room and furnishings were... More

Our family of four stayed at this hotel for three nights and we had a lovely time. The hotel was a little difficult to find, we drove to Varenna, but the views sure made up for the time lost. Originally we were staying two nights but then decided to stay three since we were getting there earlier than expected. We... More

The location of the Hotel is gorgeous, lying above lake Como with a great view. Everything else would have even been poor for half the price. We were visiting quite late in the season. The hotel seemed to be on the brink of hibernation. The room was mediocre, but not bad. During the night a strong wind did arise which... More

My wife and I had the pleasure of nesting in this wonderful little hotel last month and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. For starters, the views are breathtaking. The staff was equally impressive: knowledgeable, friendly, professional and attentive. You can tell this hotel is managed by someone who genuinely cares about the welfare of their guests. We...

We booked this hotel hoping that an upper level room would be available by the time we arrived but our lower level room was very comfortable with a fabulous view of Lake Como so we were quite content with it. Most remarkable was the staff. We arived much later than expected because of flight delays, missed connections, lost luggage...you know...the... More

We spent three wonderful days at Eremo Gaudio in the quiet and splendid village of Varenna during September. It was our second visit and we again loved the spectacular views from the hotel over the lake with the Swiss Alps in the distance. For those who are pondering which room to book, the views from both levels are superb. On... More

This hotel is amazing! The view of Lake Como is gorgeous. A short walk from the heart of Varenna, Hotel Eremo Gaudio is peaceful and quiet. The staff is very gracious and accommodating. Most rooms are accessed by way of a funicular or two as the hotel is perched high up on a very steep hill. This only adds to... More
