This was our first visit and it was spectacular. The hotel and gardens are beautiful, the service is exceptional and Lake Como is an extraordinary setting. We happen to be tennis players and the red clay courts are immaculately maintained and offer views of the Lake. Heaven. Breathtaking. We rented a car and the hotel parking was convenient…and free! Our only criticism as boring old people is that the music at the gorgeous, lakeside Bar Canova did not end until midnight and hence our 10:00 bedtime had to be delayed. We had a junior suite on the 2nd floor which was great and had a terrace overlooking the lake but it was vulnerable to the otherwise lovely music!

We didn't have a booking for dinner, but we drove there and asked for a table, I'm sure it's due to Covid travel restrictions that the place could offer us a table without an advance booking. As always the place had great atmosphere, nice Bellini, beautiful views of Lake Como and tasty food. We were with our little son and they gave him coloring book and crayons to keep him busy while we waited for our food. Very attentive and professional service. We always love to go back to Villa d este.

Villa D’Este, one of the best hotels on Lake Como, but does the service live up to expectation ? Well my answer is unfortunately no. I arrived last night for an aperitivo with my boyfriend and when we got there we had to wait 10 minutes for our table that we reserved (understandable because we did arrive 5 min late due to parking). However, when we were seated the waiters were incredibly rude to us. Both myself and my boyfriend have worked in 5 star hotels so we are from the industry and we have never experienced anything like this before. The waiters took 10 minutes to write our order down, 20 min to bring us our drinks and 45 minutes to bring the snacks. Awful awful service which is such a pity. We also noticed that the people behind us too were getting a bad service so it was not just us.

Room Tip: Villa D’Este does judge on how you dress and depending on how fancy you go the better service you...

overall pretty good. rooms are a bit dated but I guess that's the traditional nature of the hotel. great location on the lake. bit annoying that kids can't swim in the big pool, even if accompanied by an adult. pros good internet. fast room service. powerful air conditioning. cons bed (mattress and pillows) not comfortable.
