My wife and I spent three nights at Villa d'Este in a beautiful suite overlooking Lake Como. Everything about the hotel was wonderful. The staff was extremely attentive to our every need. About the only disappointment was that we were so busy we did not eat at any of the restaurants except for breakfast. It is definately a place to... More

The moment you arrive you realize that your fellow guests have something in common: a taste for the good things in life, hopefully accompanied by a reasonably well padded wallet. Americans are well represented but you will also find an interesting combination of Europeans and other difficult to ascertain nationalities. Take into consideration that this is not a hotel for...

We stayed for three nights and ate in the main dining room one night. This hotel has a long standing reputation as a 5 star experience. We have stayed on many similarly rated hotels, in many difference cities and countries. The Villa D'Este compares poorly to most. It is very expensive and you should expect much more. The dining room... More

Service impeccable but as soon as I noted the $30.00 minestrone soup as an appetizer I knew I had to put all thoughts of cost behind me and... More

Set in beautifully landscaped grounds right by the lake this iconic hotel is justifiably world famous. The hotel itself comprises tow buildings and our suite was a corner one in the Queens Building which had perfect views of the lake and the surrounding mountains. The furnishings and fixtures are traditional in style and very beautiful. We had dinner in the... More

I was very much impressed during our stay at Villa d'Este. This hotel is simply gorgeous with fantastic ambiance that makes you feel like you are staying in a palace. The service was equally impressive while the food in the restaurant was among the best meals I've tried. The price is expensive, but I think it is to some extend... More

If you want to visit one of the 8 wonders of the world, head here once in your life! The scenery of Lake Como is unlike any other on earth. We have been everywhere and nature has its showcase on Lake Como. Villa D' Este is by far the finest hotel, arguably in all of Italy. The elegance is beyond... More

The Hotel exudes class and sophistication. But for the price many guests like myself, will find the cost for any meal here is not up to standards. This establishment is gorgeous, the service top notch, but to be price pointing meals alongside Michelin stared restaurants is a disappointment. It's a satisfactory experience but many dishes as a let down. They... More
