We had two days only to see Lake Como. We chose Varenna as we were rail travellers and this hotel was an easy taxi drive from the station for only a few Euros. You could walk it but it's uphill and we had cases to lug. (BTW the coffee shop at the action is fabulous). We had a room with... More

well, much of what has been written beforehand, we found to be true. The place is a little tired and in need of some loving attention, but to be honest it just about fitted our needs. The room was clean, bathroom as well, so no complaints. The bed wasn't the most comfortable in the world, and the pillows (if they... More

A slightly tired traditional hotel whose main asset is its proximity to the Paradiso ferry terminal. Contrary to what I read on the booking engine, it did not have parking facilities and I paid a fortune in the underground garage across the road. My room was old fashioned but clean, with a view over the lake and the fountain. The... More

A classic, smaller, but grand looking hotel, right on the lake, right at the fountain of the lake. We had a Junior suite with the lakeview, and the room itself is really nice and plenty spacious, with two balconies. The room itself seems to have been recently updated nicely, however, the bathroom got missed in the renovation and was a... More

We have stayed one weekend in this lovely hotel. It is older hotel, with weird, dated and a little creepy decor, but somehow it fits the place. The room was clean, not very big, but comfortable with dated furniture. The highlight was the terrace. As it was only room in the hotel which has it, we were lucky. Although many... More

The hotel is in a prime spot with a great restaurant downstairs . It has a bit of a Fawlty Towers feel about it as you are not allowed to enter from the front due to the dark nightclub on way through to reception so you have to walk around the building be wary that the nightclub goes to 5... More

located on the lakeside, just separated by the main road, the Victoria is one of these locations that have its glory behind them. Dusty velvet and carpets make the interior, combined with ancient Egyptian drawings and the like...

Hotel is very good located right by the lake and in walking distance to the city centre. Unfortunately the parking is only possible in a public garage (without any discount from the hotel and its 40 CHF a day!) or you have to find in front of the Hotel a spot but thats very hard and you have to make...

This hotel has lovely views over the lake and is not far from Lugano Paradiso station. The hotel is in the process of being updated and our junior suite had a large bathroom, a good sized double bed and a sofa bed that curled up a little at the end but our son found comfortable enough.
