The views alone are breathtaking! This hotel is everything you'd imagine Lake Como should be. We didn't stay here, but we enjoyed a drink and walked around the grounds. The staff was super friendly. Next time we're on Lake Como, we'll return

This hotel really lived up to it's reputation!! Upon arrival we were given a beautiful one bedroom suite with amazing view of the lake. It was my daughter's birthday and not only did they deliver a beautiful dessert amenity, but also an expensive bottle of rose champagne along with it! Our room was lovely, and the landscaping and grounds of... More

Although this is a stunning location and grounds, we were slightly underwhelmed with the service. The staff was a bit arrogant and we didn't get the feeling that they would bend over backwards for us (which we expect from a hotel of this reputation and price). The room was tiny, with hardly enough space for our luggage. The views are... More

A wonderful hotel right on the lakeside. Beautiful interior décor and gardens. Very nice floating pool area on the lake. Several excellent retaurants with a great selection of the italian cuisine and a winelist to go with that. Impeccable service.

Since we had been told by many friends and our travel agent how fabulous the Villa D'este is, my expectations were high and I was concerned I would be disappointed. This hotel surpassed all my expectations. The facility itself is magnificent. To truly appreciate the hotel you need to walk the entire grounds and read the history so you understand... More

Great food, great setting, great rooms, great staff. While the process, of course, match all this, no doubt the world could use a few more establishments like this. Looks like the new generation will keep up the flame!

Words cannot describe the elegance of this hotel. It's was such a privilege to be able to stay here over the summer. The setting of Villa D'Este is unforgettable - set against Lake Como with impeccable views of the lake and a large amount of gardens itself - there's a lot to uncover during your stay. The hotel offers lots... More

You would think that if a hotel would ever be pretentious, this would be it - that's not the case. The staff here are the friendliest and most professional without being overbearing. The food is also magnificent. We just had breakfast here but it was the best I've every had. The omelettes were so fluffy and delicate, same with the... More
