We found Varenna to be an excellent location to base our visit to Lake Como. The hotel is a small establishment on a square with a lift. We arrived by train and did not need a car. While on a map, it looks like it is not far from the train station, I would not advise walking it. I did;... More

This hotel was up a little bit from the lake front area but I had a single room with a view of the lake itself. The staff was friendly and it came with a very nice breakfast in the morning. The bed was nice and the room met my needs. The walls are a little thin but I didn't notice... More

My family traveled to Varenna in mid June and we had a lovely stay. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the wireless service was good. We loved the breakfast. The gentleman that served us was so friendly and helpful and made certain we had our fill of wonderful ham, cheese, fruit and pastries. We walked from the train station... More

Central location in Varenna, friendly and helpful staff, large breakfast, room was cleaned well everyday, reasonably priced. I stayed 3 nights and was very happy overall. My bed was quite small but it was comfortable.

In the very heart of the town on a nice piazza by the church. Close to everything. Charming old house. We had the suite, which was spacious with a nice lake view (but not big windows). Breakfast was bigger and better than expected. Lunch on the terrace was very nice, try the pizza with bresaola! We even had dinner there,... More

Pros: Good location right in the heart of the Varenna centre, wide variety of breakfast, resto serves delicious food at a reasonable price, reliable wifi, and excellent service. Will recommend and will definitely go back there again! Cons: A bit of a walk from the ferry station but if you go by the lake route, the view is stunning!

One of the best hotel experiences e have ever had! My wife and I stayed for two days just before busy season. The owner/chef did everything possible to make our stay amazing. Quiet during the day and the restaurant was lively at night. We will be back!!!

Albergo del Sole is located in a small, picturesque square some 10/15 minute walk from the train station. Adjacent to the hotel is a small coffee shop/bar and there's another opposite the nearby church. The church has a very loud set of bells! The service was excellent and the people were very helpful. The rooms were not especially spacious or... More

Rick Steves states in his tour guide that this hotel has no hint of a lake view but, Rick was wrong!!!! Our room #5 on the 3rd floor did in fact have a lake view as well as the two rooms on the side of us. It isn't a full view but a partial. The room was spotlessly clean, the... More
