The Hotel Eremo Gaudio is located on a hillside on the outskirts of Varenna. The location lends itself to stunning views of Lake Como. We stayed in the Teodolinda suite which meant we had a room plus a very generous portico. At night after a day of sightseeing we returned to tranquility of this remarkable place and watched the sunset... More

I guess, after reading other reviews, that I should preface this review with the caveat that we are hikers. We decided to stay at this hotel for the views and the funicular (we enjoy trams, ski lifts, etc.). We were not disappointed. We did get a taxi to take us from the train station to the hotel when we arrived... More

The good : This hotel has a beautiful view over the lake. Our room (32) had a patio with a wonderful view and a lot of space for enjoying the vista. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom has a shower (but no tub.) The breakfast food is excellent with pastries, cereal, and cold cuts. The weekend dinner was... More

The view is breathtaking from the height of the hotel - however, that is all you get with this place. I had the room superior - top floor, with a patio out back. It's nice and quiet - there is a sitting area on floor four for all guests with good views of the lake and town below. The room... More

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...
