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

I had heard so much about this property, and on my first stay there, I was completely impressed. The Villa D'Este is one of the finest hotel resorts in the world--it is flawless. The Concierge, housekeeping staff, and Front Desk personnel are top notch. This hotel is a finely oiled machine of excellence. Everywhere you look, the Villa D'Este is... More

I took my wife to the Villa D'Este as part of her 50th Birthday Celebrations. I have to say that it was an almost spiritual experience. We had a room with a Lake View, and believe me you can get immersed for hours just taking in the scenery. The Hotel and its Gardens are simply magnificent. Also it seems that... More

We recently returned from our first stay at Villa D'Este. This is truly a world class property! Our third floor lake view suite in the Cardinal's building was spacious, beautifully decorated, and afforded the perfect view of the lake. Dinner at the Grill allowed us to dine in a sophisticated setting with perfect service. My greatest praise is reserved for... More
