The Royal is located off the main square in Varenna and occupies a lakeside position with fantastic views to the rear. The common areas are lavishly appointed with rich leather furniture and high end panelling that makes you feel you have arrived at a hotel with more than 4 stars. The room we had was quite small by our standards... More

So when I was in Florence, looking for a place to sit at the very crowded but seriously awesome Mercado Centrale 2nd Floor Food Heaven, I ran into some American tourists who had just been in Varrena, Italy, which was my next destination. They suggested visiting the Royal Victorian Hotel for cocktails or dinner, so in true "word of mouth... More

This hotel is one of those classic family run type with plenty of marble, antique (or old) furniture, panoramic room balcony views, garden, veranda for breakfast etc. found most readily in traditional Italian tourist areas. The service is first rate, and unusually for us, on a whim we took half board. There are enough restaurants in Varenna to eat out... More

We stayed as a family (2 adults + a 4 year old) in early July. We booked Junior Suite 'Renzo' which large enough to accommodate a single bed in addition to a king bed. Beds were comfortable. Bathroom and shower were great. The suite also had a large free-standing bath. The room had air-conditioning, which was essential for the hot... More

We had a wonderful time in Varenna and our hotel provided a great backdrop for our weekend. Splurge on the lake view balcony rooms - where every morning your greeted by the lake and mountains. Breakfast was diverse and plentiful - particular care was given for those with gluten intolerance. We had dinner several times at the hotel and found... More

Highly recommended. Great location, attentive staff, bountiful breakfast, nice pool and has one of only 3 beaches in Varenna.Superb lakeside dining. Would return without question. As for Varenna - my wife and I took the ferry to many of the central lake villages and Varenna is the best. A quiet, romantic, scenic, pedestrian friendly base.

One of those rare places where you feel relaxed from the minute of arrival. The best location in Varenna, spotless appearance and service throughout the hotel. Amazing garden&pool area, restaurant, rooms - everything. This hotel is the best in town and the town itself great little spot for a relaxing classic Como break.

The family really enjoyed this stay at Royal Victoria. I am giving a 5 star review but in all honesty it should be about 4.5 stars, if I had that as an option. First the location is perfect. Varenna is a great jumping off point for Lake Como due to the fact it is available via rail from Milan, and... More

The Royal is a classic on the lake, beautiful rooms, excellent service and a stunning location. I feel sick while there and the staff happily arranged a visit to the local doctor. Our room was spacious with a balcony overlooking the lake all you could ask for and more.

My daughter and I just spent 4 wonderful days at the Royal Victoria Hotel in Varenna. We were heartbroken to have to leave. The hotel is beautiful with antique details throughout. The staff is extremely thoughtful and attentive. We had a huge terrace which faced the lake. The hotel has a lovely modern pool and access to a beach. Plentiful... More
