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

We stayed at this hotel for two nights, and absolutely loved Varenna. The hotel had a great location near the boat dock and train station, and was an easy walk to all of the sights in this small town. The room was very simple, but it was clean and comfortable. What was very nice here was the service. We really... More

This is a nice modern hotel with all the conveniences very close to the train station and an easy walk to the city center. The food was also excellent and I highly recommend it. The staff of this family owned hotel was extremely friendly and courteous. A pleasure to stay here.

I have stayed here in the past, it is now under new ownership and it is a vast improvement. This is a family run B&B and the level of concern for a comfortable and pleasant stay is apparent. The greeting and registration process was as if you were coming to a relatives home for the first time. This is not... More

Don't know how this place rates 4 stars as it is very basic and old. Convenient to train station and harbour. Had a bit of trouble with the wifi but Marco very quickly sorted it out for us. We weren't inspired to try the restaurant.

We traveled to Italy September 23 and our first stop was Vareena. The hotel room was a bit noisy since it faced on the main road but the cooler fall nights allowed us to close the window and cut down the sound. We were so exhausted we barely noticed the noise the first night anyway! The room was nice and... More

We had a great time staying here in Varenna. The staff was very nice, the rooms were clean, and the breakfast was GREAT!! The breakfast had great choices, including homemade jams. The staff was very helpful with whatever we needed. Also, the chef/owner is a world renowned chef! There are awards, newspaper articles, and pictures of him cooking all over... More

Very unprofessional staff, super rude...we were welcome by a very moody lady with a yelling baby in her arms (super unprofessional). Looks like it's owned by a family with lots of internal problems since they were all yelling at each other. The breakfast was maybe the worst I have eaten in Italy. Super low quality food... old bread, bad quality... More
