Villa d'Este is a grand old Hotel that everybody should be lucky enough to enjoy. The location, grounds, rooms, service and food is all top of its class. At dusk on the lakefront patio we had wonderful drinks listening to the most amazing piano....brought my lady to tears.

First, the property is amazing and the fine dining restaurant is vey good, but not superb. However, if you prefer extreme formal dining and staff constantly pouring a tad more wine, then you will love the service. Much of the setting for drinks and dinner is set to see who is dining and not turned out the windows for the... More

My third time there and I always hate leaving. Classic old school european luxury. Everything is top notch from the suites to the food. Awesome location, just over the border from Lugano and set on beautiful Lake Como. During our stay, Billy Joel was there and put on an impromptu piano playing concert for a group of us. Rent a...

This really is one of the best hotels in the world and it has prices to match. It seemed that a good 80% of the guests were either wealthy Americans or people on seminars spending their company's money. However, if you can run to the cost, even for a special weekend, you will be well rewarded. We had a fantastic... More

We are a well travelled couple who like to indulge in the best luxury hotels around the world.

As an experienced traveler, well acquainted with the pros and cons of much hyped luxury hotels, I was very torn as to whether I should splurge for a stay at Lake Como's much heralded Villa d'Este, or opt for a less expensive option "up the lake" with similarly positive reviews. I'm delighted to say that I chose Villa d'Este, and... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in a lovely suite. I planned our entire trip around to be here on the 4th of July. The property boost a lovely formal soiree with cocktails, live music and dancing, a multi course dinner, a ballet, fire works and more. We were unfortunate that mother nature did not allow all of this to... More

We booked in for a week into a junior suite with a "full frontal" lake view but stayed 5 night/6 days because of poor weather. From the moment we arrived we were greeted by Mossimo the GM who appeared to be everywhere and who together with his team looked after us like Maharajahs (Think Udaivillas by Oberoi). Think Great Gatsby/Hampton's... More

Everything about this hotel exudes old style class. The setting, the buildings, the decor, the bars, the dinning rooms, the bedrooms, the suites, the staff........and the food, as the locals say..Madonna!!
