I really enjoyed this hotel above a bar.Only one employee spoke English, but she was able to solve a double booking issue my friends and I were concerned about. The four of us stayed two to a room for three nights. The rooms were unremarkable, but the we enjoyed the ambiance of the bar where locals gathered for cards and... More

Hotel Beretta was quiet and cool, with a great locals bar as the downstairs (populated by elderly people gambling). Included breakfast is served here, including pastry, espresso, and yogurt. We requested the terrace and it had a beautiful view if the town and the lake. The room is big enough, with a sink and a bidet and shared bath down... More

Clean, friendly, helpful. room with a view of the lake at no extra cost. Hotel is above a local Italian bar so great coffee for breakfast. Great location near train station and boat. Varenna is a gorgeous little village. With the trains and boats really easy to explore the whole lake and to go to Milan if you wish. Really... More

We dropped in here after getting off the train and decided to have a nice cool beer before tackling the hill to the apartment. The lady behind the bar only spoke Italian. No problem with that. When in Rome etcetera. Could she pull a pint and a half of beer? No she couldn't. After several attempts she gave me half... More

We had a really pleasant stay in this hotel. The room was huge, well furnished and had a big balcony with lake view. Everything was very clean and the breakfast basic but good, with really good coffee. The location is also perfect as it is a few meters from the boats and the centre of varenna. Generally in this area... More

There was nothing great about the hotel besides the location. The room was extremely basic as was the breakfast. No one was really welcoming or rude. To them, we were just paying customers. We paid, they gave us the key and that was that. I don't need pomp and circumstance at a hotel but it just didn't feel welcoming.

This hotel is a step above a hostel, and it's a real bargain given the location. Rooms overlook the lake in beautiful and quiet Varenna. The rooms and bathroom are kept fairly clean, though they smelled of strong cleaning products. Despite the great deal and phenomenal location, I wouldn't return. Aside from the girl who checked us in, staff were... More

I stayed here for only 1 day and it was the best decision I made when planning the trip. Its a 5 min walk from the train station, there is an info office next door and the port where the ferries leave from is a 5 min walk as well. There are a lot of beautiful things to see, like... More

We stayed here as it was the cheapest hotel close to Varenna. The location was good, about 5 minutes from central Varenna by foot. However, that was about the extent of the positives. The room - although non-smoking - absolutely stunk of smoke. We were on the first floor directly above the bar which proved to be very noisy as... More
