If you are not afraid of heights, you should stay at the top bldg of the hotel. You have to take the funicular up and the view is spectacular. We stayed at the lower bldg. the room was clean and the view was ok. Once you been up to the top bldg any view below that is going to be... More

This review is a long time coming. My brother and I stayed here in the summer of 2012. To this day, I have fond memories of the hotel, the town Varenna, and the Lake Como. The view at the hotel was spectacular, both from the room overlooking the lake, the hotel grounds, and the top of the hotel after riding... More

My husband and I were lucky enough to stay on the very top floor of this hotel. We took a funicular up the mountain to the 6th floor which had a view that was spectacular. The patio was large and we enjoyed sitting up there viewing Lake Como. The room was quiet and we slept well. The food in the... More

Stayed here 5 nights and have never found it so difficult to review a hotel! Firstly there are 2 hotels - the lower where we stayed and an older (more expensive I presume) upper part which is 150m further up the mountain by private funicular. All rooms appear to have stunning views over the lakes. Good - good service ,... More

We had the Varenna room at the tip-top of the hotel. This hotel is fabulous and a totally unique experience but it is not in the main part of the town. We reached it by climbing up the hill to the hotel, climbing stairs to an outdoor funicular elevator to get to a second funicular elevator, then taking an indoor... More

We went there for the views and location and no one could be disappointed with them unless it was obstructed by clouds. Telephone wires from your room? Go to the main patio and don't go without a good camera. Quiet and romantic too.

My husband and I spent 4 nights here and absolutely loved it. We had a balcony that overlooked the lake, with the alps in the backkground. The views were awesome. The hotel is clean and simple. Nothing fancy. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. Breakfast is included and it's nothing to write home about, but adequate. The hotel is... More

The ad at hotels.com looks nice, but that's the upper building. The standard rooms are in a totally uncharming building below. The breakfast was the worst on our trip; everything wrapped in small plastic containers. No assosiation to great Italian food, and NO charm. Other hotels in same price-range have ber splendid, this sucks. The reception lady was nice, hence... More

We stayed here 13-14th April 2014 for two nights. We paid for a room with a view. This was the best decision we made during our entire 6 week holiday. The views from our room and balcony were unbelievable. The staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly. The receptionist during our stay was incredibly good and her help was greatly appreciated....

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
