We enjoyed our time here very much and this hotel delivered on what it promised. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, the rooms were comfortable but not large, and the views were breathtaking. Breakfasts were very good -- and you could not beat the view. The front desk staff were very helpful in finding us a boating option that... More

My wife and I recently stayed at this hotel and we loved it. It is a decent walk to the hotel from the train station but the views provide a wonderful distraction. The hotel was clean and comfortable and the staff was very friendly. Breakfast was a fantastic experience - the food was great and the view while sitting on... More

Varenna Dock is a lovely area to spend a couple of hours. Some interesting small shops, particularly il Pozzo for its array of stone necklaces, trinkets and larger stones for collectors. We finally chose to eat Lunch at the du Lac taking advantage of their small terrace adjacent to the lake, a little quieter that the other options that were... More

We checked it out for dinner but it doesn't serve food at that time so we got drinks. We were given chips, peanuts, a cookie and fresh olives with our drinks! A great way to relax in a nice, classy environment until your dinner reservations is ready.

Located in the heart of Varenna, with great lake views. Our room was large and clean. Staff was very helpful. They helped us make restaurant reservations. Also, try lunch on their terrace. Food was good and the view is spectacular. Breakfast was good. Their was good selection to chose from. The only knock was that there was limited staff in... More

The hotel has a splendid position on the lake and this is the reason it is high on TA rankings. The hotel itself would not rate so high without the view. So you need to make sure you have a room with a terrace or balcony overlooking the lake to take advantage of its plus point and if they cannot... More

This is a sweet little botique hotel situated right on Lake Como. We accessed the hotel from the street above and had to get to the front door through stairs located outside. I do believe you can get down through the parking area where there is an elevator if you have heavy luggage. Service was welcoming and pleasant. The view... More

Santorini in Greece is at this level. We were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary and the venue couldn't have been more perfect . Five wonderful nights - the staff was friendly at all times and attentive as well. We traveled to all the other locations around the lake and by far Varenna is special.

Such a surprise -- we wandered in and had the best lunch ever, sitting on the terrace overlooking the lake. The food was superb and the service very attentive. We would return tomorrow, if we could. The weather was beautiful so everyone was sitting outside, but the interior dining room looked really lovely, too.

Splurged slightly on our last stop in Italy and booked the room with a waterview and balcony. Well worth the extra euros to sit on the balcony at night and enjoy the lights of Lake Como. This hotel has a wonderful balcony bar and happy hour - one of the best on Lake Como per the locals. There were no... More
