If you want amazing views of Lake Como and a comfortable stay then Eromo Guadio is the perfect place to stay. Yes the rooms are basic but they're comfortable and once you step on to the balcony and look at the view, you don't care what your room looks like. We stayed in the top part of the hotel in... More

I would have given the hotel 2,5 out of 5, but that is not possible here on TA. In general: The rooms are smallish but clean with a good bed. The bathroom is okay but with a very small shower-cabin. The balconies have a great view on Lake Como. The airconditioning only has on on/off button so you cannot adjust... More

Although Eremo Gaudio looks a bit tired and dated, it is definitely worth staying in for the views alone. We had booked through a well known third party booking site and once checked in, quickly realized that our "full lake view room" (no. 12) was not in fact one with a small private balcony as shown in the pictures, but...

Perched on side of hill with expansive Lake Como views. Easy walking distance from Varenna however unless fit if you have suitcases might want to catch taxi up to Hotel. About 10 minute walk to centre of town and 15 minutes to railway station. Breakfast provided with restaurant and bar. Majority of rooms are in main building with a number... More

This was the highlight of our trip to Milan and a slice of heaven. Rooms were very clean and large (although a little sparse and with somewhat outdated furnishing). The hotel is perched on the steep hillside and offers amazing views of Lake Como, Varenna and the surroundings from all over - from the rooms, from its indoor-and-outdoor restaurant terrace... More

Someone posted that the B&B is exactly as pictured and it is but even better. The 2 tables on the terrace as well as the terrace are larger than pictured. We enjoyed our wine and juice on the terrace. Folks needs to know that there is not lift and you do have to haul your bags up 2 flights. Also... More

A very unique hotel. Once a hermitage,then an orphanage the buildings are perched up the side of a steep hillside. Spectacular views. It is a mini journey to our topmost room. First ascent in outdoor elevator(funicular) to scenic landing, then next similar elevator(shorter ride) higher up to building where you proceed to a regular elevator to the top floor where... More

We were very lucky to get one of the rooms on the same floor as reception with a huge balcony and the most spectacular view. The rooms were clean, the staff were friendly and accommodating. The walk up the hill is not too bad( and worth it for views). I loved the quirky split of this hotel with half of... More

The rooms in the "chapel"building are worth requesting - the views from up there are just amazing. There is also a large deck area where a bottle of wine can be quietly enjoyed watching the sun go down. The reception staff are good but nothing exceptional. The restaurant food was average and the views are great but it lacks atmosphere.... More

This hotel is quite an experience! It is in a former monastery, orphanage. There are several levels. If possible, stay in the upper building. It takes two funiculars and one elevator to get to your room. So needless to say, you have an eye-popper view. It is literally stunning to watch the sunset over the lake. The rooms are comfortable...
