If you're looking for a staid, characterless, soulless 4/5 star hotel this is not your place! This is an authentic, characterful little Italian hotel in a great location within a great village. The host and her staff are very welcoming and efficient. The rooms are relatively basic, but tastefully decorated, ours was air-conditioned, and the bathroom was large. This is... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Villa Torretta. We were in room #8 and it was lovely. I would have to say and this is not just for the Villa but air conditioning throughout Italy on our vacation is NOT what we are used to in the US. :-) The room was large with a large bathroom/shower area. We... More

It is probably hard to wrong at any hotel in Varenna on Lake Como, which is stunningly beautiful. Villa Torretta, part of Hotel Olivedo, was amazing. We had a large room with a fireplace and an eating area, a large bathroom, and a balcony that overlooked the garden and the lake. I have read reviews complaining about noise so close... More

Loved the location of this hotel, and we stayed in the separate small cottage with a lovely view. The breakfast was good, and the staff person, a man, was very helpful. However, the woman that checked us in was not into customer service; we were told at checkin that the wifi was broken, and would be fixed soon, then a... More

We were looking for a place to stay in Varenna and chanced upon this Villa and its sister Hotel Olivedo. Charmed by its old world grandeur, we went ahead to book, but could only get the Hotel because the Villa was full. Correspondence with the owner Laura was pleasant and prompt. But as we would have preferred the Villa because... More

We had a lovely time at this villa. We were in room 5, with a terrace that overlooked the water. It felt like our own private villa!! Wifi worked well the first night, signal decreased as more people checked in on Saturday night but this wasn't so important to us as we were looking to relax. I see why people... More

The location is great. Most of the rooms are with wonderful view and adequately furnished . But we did not like the hotel. The reason is the Staff and the owner. They should understand that , for visitors what makes a stay comfortable is actually the Staff and the owner. I think for 180euro per night we can really expect... More

This could have been a better stay than it was. Our room was beautiful with lake views but it was smoky. We were given another room nearby which was fine but this one couldn't get wifi so we had to walk to a nearby sitting room to communicate with family....not perfect on one of our few wet nights. Location was... More

I stayed at the Villa Torretta for 4 nights in September, 2015. Varenna is a charming village, well-positioned for exploring Lake Como, but hotel rooms are somewhat limited -- especially in the mid-priced range. The Villa Torretta is essentially a bed & breakfast that is separate from, but quite close to, the Hotel Olivedo (where an adequate breakfast is served).... More
