I had the pleasure of being treated to three nights at this magnificent, iconic hotel. It is truly one of the most amazing places one could stay. The grounds are impeccable, the rooms are all awesome and each one is different to the other. We had a suite overlooking the picturesque Lake Como (home to many a household name). All... More

We were there for 3 nights and we ate breakfast and dinner in the hotel for 3 nights. The room was spacious and service was very attentive. The meals served in the hotel were excellent. I would not normally eat in the hotel as I find the food soulless, but I felt the passion of the chef in the dishes... More

We have been staying here for more than eight years. We simply never tire of its ageless elegance, superb location and facilities and that old fashion personal service that welcomes you back by name and shows you to your favourite suite and dining table and remembers your favourite dishes and how you like them served. The views are gorgeous and... More

This is exquisite Italian countryside charm and wealth. This hotel is spectacular and worth the splurge even for one night with it's lake front setting and Renaissance architecture. The pearl of the Italian Renaissance garden is the amazing mosaic tile work and water fountains with sweeping views onto the lake. It's a joy for the senses and easy to gasp... More

Villa d’Este on Lake Como defies description in a review such as this as its location, ambience quality and sheer indulgence cannot be overstated! The lake is breathtaking but then so is the building itself, this is true opulence. We visited about 18 months ago for about a fifth time such is the draw of this Hotel. Just to sample... More

As Fabulous as ever. My fifth visit in as many years and I am already looking forward to the next year. If you want to live in the lap of luxury for a few days, go no further. They will pamper you with the personalised and warm service. I don't know any other place where an elegant dining of 250-280... More
