2 nights. Thought the staff was nice until it came time to check-out - she tried to charge me additional for breakfast, even though she said it was included. She also said breakfast was available until 10am. But after I checked out, while waiting for my train, I made the mistake of getting another glass of juice and a small... More

I rate this hotel stay a 5 simply because it is exactly what we expected: a basic, clean, convenient, and yes, rather noisy room. It was also our cheapest of 8 hotels in Europe, and we didn't have to sacrifice. It's a 5-minute walk down from the train station. Our room was large and comfortable, and the large bathroom was...

It's basic & no frills. However, it was pleasant and clean. It was also about half the price of any hotel we could find. If you want to stay in Varenna and don't need to be pampered, this place will work just fine. We did not have any trouble with reservations or with management as mentioned in some other reviews.

Beretta is a basic hotel with free wifi and some noise and maintenance problems. The hotel is ran as a backdrop to a bar and a newsstand, with few rooms with and without a bathroom. My room without bathroom had a sink and a bidet. Linen was clean, towels and soap were supplied. Shades worked properly. The room had a... More

This place is about 5 minutes from the train station, the travel agency is right next door, and it's about 2 minutes from the lake, so you won't have any problems getting around. The rooms are basic and small, but adequate. The main downside if the wifi, which you need to get a password for using an Italian cell phone,... More

my wife and I were on a driving holiday in Italy. By chance we drove past Hotel Beretta with the intention of going to Switzerland. When I stopped at the STOP sign opposite the Hotel I suggested to my wife that we should perhaps see if we could get a room for the night. One night turned to three and... More

I think that the other reviews before mine have given a good idea of the pros and cons for this place. It is not the romantic experience that some pricier Varenna hotels offer, but it is a good value at a very convenient location to the train station, and certain rooms offer excellent value. We arrived early in the day... More

Another great Lake Como hotel. I stayed here for a couple of nights and enjoyed it very much. Varenna is a beautiful town, and the Albergo Beretta is a very inexpensive place with an extremely friendly staff. I would definitely stay here again. Located near the ferry, and close to most of the city.

We found this place through Rick Steves. We had reservations but when we showed up our room was not available. The choice was to stay in a very tiny room with no bath, or a much larger room with a bath. They would not discount the price of the larger room, even though it was their fault our room wasn't...
