We stayed here for one night in mid-November, following a recommendation by a friend. We arrived quite late after a very long train journey from England in one day. Marco, whose English is excellent by the way, and his Mum & Dad, were very welcoming and extremely attentive. Dinner was delicious and the room was very comfortable. The family has... More

Booked this one with intentions to use as a base for exploration of the middle towns (Lake Como). Good choice, since modern-medieval Varenna is ( as the locals say ) the ''pearl'' of the middle passage, with larger Menagio and Bolagio worthy of the day ticket ferry zigzag. Even better choice, Montecodeno is run by young entrepreneur Marco, with industrious... More

We did not actually stay at the hotel but we did visit the beach club for an afternoon while in Varenna for the day. The staff were very friendly and the beach was clean and comfortable. The reason for my review is that while there, I left a pair of earrings on my beach chair. They were not expensive but... More

This was an excellent choice of a hotel for the Lake District. The location of the hotel is perfectly located in the city and a short convenient walking distant to the ferry. The service was excellent and we enjoyed the breakfast. The owners were very attentive and professional. Best city to stay in for the area as well. Beautiful, beautiful... More

We stayed at this hotel twice this year and have not been disappointed by the accommodation and the owners. They go out of their way to make you feel welcome - almost part of the family - and are genuinely sorry when you leave. The hotel is spotlessly clean and the buffet continental breakfast is superb. Rooms are large as... More

This hotel represented average value for money. The room was ok but we accepted it based on what we paid. Our particular bathroom however had an inadequate extractor fan. It was evident this had been the case for some time judging by some mould that had built up on the walls which wasn't pleasant. Breakfast was basic relative to other... More

Hotel Monte Condeno is good value for money and does not pretend to be something other than it is - a local, traditional hotel. Located close to the railway station and ferry terminal it is a family run hotel with a friendly family feel. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable, although a bit dated but this adds to the...

We only stayed for one night but had a very enjoyable time. As others have said, the hotel is pretty basic, however, it is clean and has everything you need and is very close to all the restaurants on the waterfront. The staff here are what make it special though, they are so warm, welcoming and friendly. The price is... More

We chose the Hotel Monte Codeno because it was recommended in Rick Steve's Italy book. We were not disappointed. I was traveling with my wife and two adult daughters. We stayed in two rooms. The rooms were very basic, but had everything you would need. The hotel staff was very friendly and helped us find a parking spot right in... More

This is a good average hotel, not a weak one. We stayed one night in the Monte Codeno having had a week in a Varenna apartment. It's not cheap - nothing in Varenna is - but it is cheaper than most other local hotels. It's down near the ferry terminal, so away from the most attractive part of the town,... More
