This quaint b&b is a 5 minute walk away from Varenna town centre and was a perfect base for us during a 3 day stay in Varenna. The train station and ferry pier for jaunts across to Bellagio and Menaggio are both a few minutes walk away, and whilst the owners speak very little English, they were very accommodating.

We are staying at this charming B&B right now and we could not be more delighted with our choice. We chose the B&B Il Bolentino because of its proximity to the train station (we didn't want to lug our heavy cases too far) but we didn't expect it to be so convienent to everything. It is close to the ferry... More

A good B and B in a great location. Very close to the Lake and within easy walking distance of the restaurants and cafes and the ferry. The hostess was welcoming. We were cycling and were able to leave the bikes undercover. The room was very comfortable, as was the bed. Great bathroom with plenty of toiletries and a good... More

Very helpful and pleasant hosts Renata and Antonio, convenient location very close to the train station and to the center of Varenna, cozy room, modern bathroom with a state-of-the art shower and various toiletries, reliable WiFi, delicious breakfast, and great price. You'll get super value for the price. Cash only - the... More

Very easy to walk to Bolentino from train station, and Antonio was waiting at front gate to let us in. Room comfortable---we had the one with the private bathroom, a large bed, and bunkbeds. Good aircon and wifi, too. Breakfast was generous--with delicious croissant, cold cereal, bread, juice, yoghurt, and more. I hadn't realized that payment was in cash, but... More

Just a short stroll down the hill from the train station in the village of Varenna is the perfectly located Bed & Breakfast, "Il Bolentino.". It is in just the right place to be a home base from which to explore the villages around Lake Como. When you arrive at Il Bolentino, Renata and her husband, Antonio, greet you with... More

Great little B&B, which is a side room of the host's main house. Well sized clean room, with great wifi, aircon and large ensuite. Renata was a lovely host, and we enjoyed breakfast each morning in their garden. The B&B doesn't have a lake view, but that didn't bother us. A very easy 4min downhill walk from the train station,...

We stayed here for two nights, and we had a great stay. Renata and Antonio went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The room was clean with a very comfortable bed and ensuite bathroom. One evening we were wandering through town in search of a dinner spot, many were closed, and Renata saw us looking around and... More

When I travel, I love the feeling of being a "temporary local." B&B Il Bolentino made me feel that way immediately. The proprietors are amazingly friendly and hospitable. While they don't speak any English, between my "Sp-Italian" (my rusty Spanish allows me to understand slow speech and read a little), my daughter's rusty Italian, and Google Translate, we got along...

Firstly be aware that Varenna Esino train station is a small station and you may miss getting off at the station, especially at night like we nearly did, if you do not speak Italian to ask other train passengers or listen very carefully to the announcement (in Italian) that you have arrived as the signage can get tricky to spot...
