“The best hotel on the planet!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

Settled there with some friends for 4 days. Everything is top! Lake Como is already a patented trademark, is a guarantee! Go there and stroll around Bellagio and every beauties of this Lake. Dont miss to spend a night at Harry's Bar restaurant close to the hotel. The owner is a gentleman who knows lots on our country (Brazil) and speaks brazilian portugues very very well.

This is a true gem from its gorgeous rooms with every conceivable amenity to its stunning location and suburb service. The restaurants are fabulous and the location is breathtaking. This is true sophistication and glamour that harkens back to another era. Its floating pool, gorgeous fireworks display over the water, piano entertainment contribute to what is an unparalleled experience.

We just returned from another lovely stay and it was as perfect as ever. The renovation of the rooms in the Queen's Pavalion are exquisit! The staff are kind, helpful and attentive and the whole experience makes one feel like the most important person who ever checked in to a hotel that entertains the high and powerful from around the world. A magical hotel in one of the most magical places in the world

Room Tip: The rooms on the lake in the pavilion are quiet and romantic- even for a couple married forty plus y...

I have visited Villa d'Este as a media rep for 2013 Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este and was really impressed by the hotel itself, the gardens and views over lake and mountains. It was all a perfect combination. Will definitely return to the hotel as a guest.

Without question or doubt, the most fabulous lunch I have ever eaten. Setting and gardens overlooking Lake Como are breathtaking - none compare once you've seen this! Hotel is without fault, opulent and grand. Food was delicious, varied and creative. Wonderful experience for anyone. We ate inside due to the weather and it was still a wonderful experience - but book to eat on the terrace if you have the choice. Definitely make time to look around the gardens if visiting for lunch/dinner.

Room Tip: we did not stay unfortunately but ask for room overlooking lake

The grounds and facilities here are truly amazing. Flawless service and fantastic amenities. Loved their breakfast, and the restaurant for dinner was amazing as well. Spent many a pleasant hour on the patio looking over the lake. Our room was spacious and quiet, and extremely well appointed. Top notch service from the minute we pulled up to the gate. Easy walk to the water taxi stop, and we walked into town one evening for a great dinner also. Really first class all the way.

We spent three nights on (Room 156) overlooking mosaic garden - what a beautiful old world hotel - extremely spacious, grandly decorated rooms. Brilliant service - breakfast buffet comprehensive, drinks on terrace very special. Unfortunately very wet while we were there, however the beauty of the area still shone through!!!! This is a MUST visit region. The Villa is a short not steep 5 minute walk into a very quaint village - shopping, restaurants etc , 10-15 minutes by car to Como.
