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

I stayed for a couple nights at the end of March. We stayed at the number 4 room and the room was absolutly perfect. Nice view to the lake, big bed, nice and clean bathroom, big sofa and a 22" TV. The room was at the 1st floor and it was very tranquil. The breakfast was very nice, cafe/juice, variety... 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

- basic clean 1-star hotel - working class locals hangout in lobby/bar which is nice to see the "real" culture - easy walk to/from train station with luggage. 5 minute walk to everything - I would stay here again in a second

I've been there at June. The room was small but nice and clean. There was wonderful view from the window. The place and the town is marvelous! And the hotel is situated just in 5 minutes walk from the lake Como. Only one flaw - the staff faintly speak English. Anyway it is cool and the price is quite reasonable.

My wife and i selected Albergo Beretta Hotel for the convenience of near the train station and ferry. We didn't have a car and were toting bags, so this worked out great. Other than the grumpy gentleman who is responsbile for breakfast, the rest of the staff were very friendly and welcoming. Not much if any English, but that didn't... More
