Visited Lake Como with a friend for 5 days. The hotel was stunning with antique-lined hallways and gorgeous pieces of art. Flawless grounds, a crazy view and impeccable service. We spent a good amount of our time in Lake Como just roaming around the grounds and taking it all in. Take a tour of the lake via water, visit the... More

This is a beautiful hotel situated right on the lake with of course, superb views. The accommodation is split between the main hotel and a smaller, but no less opulent building to the side. Our room was upgraded to a junior suite and had two balconies with views over the gardens, marina, outdoor pool and lake - quite perfect. There... More

I've been fortunate enough to have been visiting Villa d'Este since 1977 and have lost count on how many times - certainly no fewer than 20. For me it is the finest hotel in the world that I have been to and in the last 50 years have been to a great many. As its Managing Director, Danilo Zucchetti, said... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. It is a charming hotel with amazing views of largo como in a lovely town of Cernnobio. Rooms: The rooms were very luxurious and remarkably spacious. We had a partial view of the lake and the gardens. I would recommend a room with a patio facing the lake for remarkable sunrise and sunset views.... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here and we both fell in love with the place. I had wanted to stay here for many years, and it definitely lived up to my expectations. The room was very elegant, with high ceiling, and a stunning marble bathroom, with windows that overlook the lake. The bedroom also had an excellent view of the... More

5 Star hotels are 5 Star hotels. But the Villa d'Este is more than that. It's an unforgettable experience. The grounds are beautiful. If you can navigate lots of steps, you have got to spend an hour walking through the gardens. Wherever you turn, you have a great view of Lake Como. Having tea on the back verandah in front... More

It is the most expensive hotel you will ever go to. (I paid 1,300 dollars a night) but what a place. Just gorgeous gardens and I had a priceless view. One night we bought several things from a gastronomia ( in nearby Como) and sat on our balcony for dinner. Better than any restaurant view for sure. What a great... More

My husband and I went for dinner at the Veranda restaurant this evening. We were staying at another hotel and had asked our hotel to make a dinner reservation for us. From the start we were made to feel like we were extras on a b-grade film set; unsure of where to sit for pre-dinner drinks, no wait staff really... More
