This is a tricky review for me to write, as typically I like to analyse each aspect of a property from the rooms to the restaurant, from the spa to the service, yet if I were to do this in this instance I would draw the wrong conclusion as this is somewhere that is so much more than the sum...

This is unquestionably one of the best hotels in the world, an amazing history, beautiful location on the lake and wonderful and stylish rooms and gardens. Have been here a few times and never tire of it, beautiful and relaxing with either a wine or espresso sitting in the gardens by the lake. Came to Milan for a business trade... More

I had an amazing time staying at the Villa D'Estte. Everything was perfect about this hotel. It is a sporting club with a pool, tennis courts, gym, and sauna. The property is beautiful and extremely well maintained. The location is perfect. The walk into town (Cernobbio) is short. The walk to the ferry to lake como/bellagio/tremezzo is short as well....

I have stayed in some great hotels and this rates highly amongst them for service, views, locations and amenities but it is in my opinion, very much over priced - probably because of the nature of the spending holidays makers!! The week we stayed here the room rate was twice the cost of the similarly rated hotel we stayed the... More

What a fantastic location on Lake Como. Hotel of highest quality and staff and amenities first class. Snacks and meals whilst on the high side cost wise were still value for money. Eat at the Verandah Resturant and food and wines were excellent. Great spot for a romantic interlude. Will need to come back.

Spent a beautiful day sipping champagne in the gardens of this magnificent hotel. The ambience, service were exceptional. Only sad thing is this hotel closes from November to March. It's expensive, but like everything, you get what you pay for! Can't wait to go back.

This places is AMAZING you'll truly believe you're in heaven. First, the staff received is super nicely, then our room view was spectacular, sightseeing Lago di Como. Food was great, pool area great and we were lucky the weather was perfectly sunny. Not too hot not too cold, just perfect. Worth every penny.

I am OCD and well travelled but think Villa needs a little polishing not an overhaul .It is a true ancient Villa so one must be realistic .Pure class does come at a price but I didn't think this was not in line with the experience.This is an experience! I liked it better than the Metropole Monaco and Trianon etc... More

First thought after reading all the glowing reviews of Villa d'Este was to simply say "ditto." It is a true luxury hotel in every way--definitely in a class above five-star. The hotel is elegant and charming--a duke's palace turned into a world-class resort. The location is sublime--on the shores of particularly lovely stretch of Lake Como. And Lake Como ranks... More
