This hotel is all about the view. Como may be the most beautiful scenery in Italy and the view from the upper rooms is so spectacular that it is hard to leave the room and start the day. Of course in order to get this view it is high up the mountain side which means you drive or walk up... More

The good - we stayed in a room know as Bellagio on the upper level for 3 nights; the view from the balcony was spectacular. The room and in fact all of the hotel was clean. The bathroom was rather compact and would be difficult for large people eg the back of your legs touch the toilet while using the... More

I loved this place, its very simple, but the view is breath taking and the staff was wonderful. I hope we return one day and it stays the same. Someone on trip advisor uploaded pictures of a bathroom in a bad condition, I never saw this.

Pros: This hotel is, by light years, the most scenic in the area. Perched on the side of a mountain overlooking Lake Como, it offers ridiculous vistas from hotel rooms, balconies, stairs, and pretty much everywhere you look. We had the worst room on the lower level and we still woke up to a panoramic view of Como every morning.... More

We would agree with others who have said this hotel needs a facelift and new management. Believe they are riding on being discovered by travel writers like Rick Steves, and are not putting forth the effort they should to make guests comfortable, given their prices. The hotel is a converted orphanage and feels like it. The rooms are stark and... More

As the pictures and other reviews of this hotel suggest, this hotel has absolutely amazing views of Lake Como. That fact alone made it a nice place to stay, in my opinion. My husband and I stayed here for a few nights in the "Tremezzo" room, which was about 135 euro/night (mid-range for the Eremo Gaudio). We were disappointed that... More

This hotel is so unique as it is built on the side of a steep hill and you take two outside elevators/sort of tram like, up the steep hill to you room located in the top building. You can stay in the lower one the but the top is best. The room was large and the view from my window/balcony... More

My wife and I recently spent 5 nights at Eremo Gaudio in Varenna. I have to say that my impressions of the hotel are mixed. As others have said, the views are fantastic from the hotel. The staff was wonderful as well. They helped to guide us to some truly terrific restaurants and things to do while in Varenna. The... More

Although the hotel was a little bit of a hike on the edge of town, the views from the room balconies and hotel terrace were incredible. The staff was very helpful answering our questions, and even called a restaurant to make reservations for us. The breakfast had a greater variety than some of the other places we had stayed in...
