The owner of the hotel is very friendly. Her son works at the restaurant by the beach on Lake Como and you get a great deal for beach access. The breakfast was delicious every morning. Close to delicious restaurants and shops.

Excellent value, especially half-board. Very friendly staff but limited English. Clean, simple room. Fast, free internet. Handy for ferry terminal and train station. Inclusive breakfast very good with excellent coffee. Half board dinner with a good choice of two courses included drinks and coffee.

Me and my wife visited Lake Como on Easter weekend in 2015. The hotel is at an excellent location considering its proximity to Ferry as well as Varenna Train Station ( approx 5-8 mins by walk ). The room is nice and clean with all basic amenities. Its WiFi service was just awesome. Had no issues to play Youtube either... More

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...
