Hotel monte Codeno is a simple and fairly basic hotel located in Varenna, a short walk to the train station and ferries. The rooms were comfortable without being luxurious. However, it was perfect for my budget. Each room contains a television, cupboard, safe and desk. The bathroom was clean and well-stocked. The only downside is that the road below can... More

Positives: Close to ferry and train station. Negatives: No view at all. While reception in at road level entrance is 100 metres up a cobbled stone donkey path on the second floor. No elevator. Hallways are small with echoes so you wake up when the first person closes their room door. Room too small for suitcases. Bathroom terrible, no where... More

This hotel is an affordable and comfortable place to stay on Lake Como. It has great access to climb onto a boat and see the lake and it's a beautiful place to walk around a sample the many places to eat and views to see. The rooms were clean, relatively large in size and beds were comfortable. Thank you for... More

The staff were very helpful and accomodating given our late check in. The hotel, whilst not modern, was extremely well presented and spotlessly clean. Would stay here again. This was a great late night find when all you want to do is fall into bed after a long day of travelling. Breakfast was included and it was simple, tasty and... More

Marco and his mom Lydia and their helpers make every effort to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. From morning coffee to the evening lakeside meal I wasn't disappointed, The bed was in fact the most comfortable of our 23 day stay in Italy and that includes my bed at my moms house in Naples. Centrally located in Varenna and... More

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
