I stayed here once on business together with a colleague last October and in February with my family. The hotel restaurant offers some original and superbly-cooked dishes in a friendly, intimate atmosphere. Both rooms I have stayed in were clean, quiet and decorated to a high standard, with superb views. Breakfast is simple but of excellent quality too! There is... More

We stayed in Varese as a base for attending the Italian GP in September of this year. The hotel is located outside of Varese itself, but a superb location with views to die for. The Hotel is clean and well maintained and the owner is extremely hospitable. The rooms are cosy, clean and very well maintained. We chose to dine... More

Sacra Monte di Varese is a small village perched atop a mountain within a forested area. Hotel Colonne sits on the edge of the village and the mountain, so has fantastic views over Varese and the forests. We stayed 4 nights and loved our time there. The breakfasts were an incredibly good start to our days - organic and locally... More

A 3 night stay with our partners was planned as part of a longer 'boys' motorbike tour of Europe. What a find this place was. Its quirky to say the least, but the staff are warm and welcoming. Mama was an absolute delight and nothing was too much trouble for her. Silvio is a Michelin starred chef, needless to say... More

A Sat nav was useful for finding this hotel we found, as it is up a windy mountain road outside town. It is however signposted. The last few hundred metres are a narrow cobbled street. There is car parking at the side of the hotel, and if that is full when you arrive, there is also an underground park. We... More

Hotel Colonne is one of my favorite hotels. Silvio is so nice and helpful, he is ready to do anything for his guests. Breakfast is delicious!! Mama is a sweet older woman who makes sure you have everything you could want. When I went at the end of July there were small bowls of fresh finely cut fruit, absolutely fantastic.There... More

We re-visited Varese but because we'd left booking to the last minute we could only get a room for one night. This time we had room 4 which was simply beautiful. We stayed on Monday and hadn't realised the restaurant was closed but were greeted by the delightful lady who helps run the hotel and who is so kind and... More

The location of the hotel is fabulous with amazing views over Varese and part of the lake. The hotel is situated about 25 minutes out of Varese up winding narrow roads. Don't let this put you off it is worth the journey. The hotel is comfortable and has an excellent restaurant. The staff are very friendly and there is parking... More

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Colonne while we supported the Great Britain rowing team at the Under 23 World Championships in Varese. We had been let down by another hotel, which we'd booked months ago and who then cancelled our booking less than two weeks before we arrived. We are really grateful to them - without this... More
