We have visited Italy several times, but we had never stayed at Lake Como. We picked this spot to end our trip and were not disappointed. The rooms were simple but clean. The view from the balcony was incredible. We had what I would consider one of the less desirable rooms on the lower level below check in/out, but that... More

Eremo Gaudio is a very good hotel perched on the side of a mountain in Varenna and overlooking Lake Como. The rooms are adequate, clean and with good facilities. The staff, especially the lovely receptionist and the rather jolly barman, were very helpful. The main attraction about this place is the stunning view. There is good access for disabled people...

I chose Eremo Gaudio on the basis of the pictures I had seen online. What we got was even better than the pictures - this hotel must have one of the best outlooks in northern Italy. Before I get back to the views, I'll tell you about the hotel: • The rooms and facilities are modern, spacious, comfortable and relaxing.... More

We stayed one night in the hotel. The views from the hotel are absolutely stunning; however, the smaller rooms with the balcony were a bit disappointing. There wasn't any privacy on the balcony (rooms just below the check-in level) because they were side-by-side with only 1-2m separating each. The room furnishings definitely need to be updated, but for the rate... More

This is a 2-star establishment masquerading as a 3-star, charging 4-star prices simply for the view... Which whilst admittedly amazing , does not make up for the very basic rooms, old thin towels, insects all over the room and air-conditioning that only works 20% of the time.... I. The summer heat , this is unworkable, at night the rooms are... More

The positives: Fabulous views, immaculately clean room throughout our stay, decent bed and linen, powerful shower, fresh towels every day, wide range of foods at the breakfast buffet, terrace to our room, plenty of parking space, a short walk from town, helpful and friendly staff. However, our room on level 2 was stark, lacking in charm and was furnished with... More

We were on the 6th floor and had a jaw-dropping view of Lake Como. It was incredible and worth every dollar! We were able to sit out on the patio at night and enjoy looking at the city lights reflect on the water. The rooms were clean. The bathroom and shower were excellent. The bed could have been more comfortable,... More

This place exemplifies the bad advice that comes out of Tripadvisor. People actually LIKE this place! And we listened to them and booked it! Where were they staying? Not the same hotel I was in. Apparently, the owner is the cheapest man in Varenna. Our bed was so bad, two springs were sticking up through the mattress, poking me in... More

We chose this hotel based on previous reviews and were not disappointed. The rooms are simple but extremely clean, but the views of lake Como are magnificent. This is a quaint unpretencious looking place but it has a very special feel and with all of the rooms having this fabulous lake view, with balconies and terraces, it is definately a... More
