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

My wife and I were touring with a group and staying at this hotel. We were the first of our group to arrive. We got the top floor room with a wonderful large terrace. When I mean top, this hotel was on the side of a mountain. The view from the terrace looked across Lake Como towards Bellagio. The view... More

After reading reviews of this property, I wasn't expecting much at all beyond a place to sleep. The stay clearly exceeded my expectations. The views - as every other review clearly articulate - are fantastic. Watching the sun rise and slowly reveal the beauty of the lake is an experience you don't want to miss. Clearly a fantastic view.

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
