I was rather excited about our stay at Villa D’Este - a famous, glamorous hotel on Lake Como. On the map it looked like the perfect staging point on our long drive back to the UK from Tuscany which swung the decision. We’d requested a lake view on the booking notes, but one closer inspection, it seemed we’d booked a... More

The place is awesome with a huge garden which goes well into the rocks where you can ascend old galleries used in medieval times to defend the place... the hotel is definitely a grand hotel with a excellent kitchen. You just have to know, that with the prices in the restaurant you pay for the ambiance. It's a very elegant... More

The location of the Villa d'Este sits the northern shore of Lake Como is unimprovable. The hotel itself is very, very grand, though beginning to fray at the edges. I appreciate that the charm of such a place is its historical grandeur, but I don't think this should stretch to stains on carpets, chipped paintwork, and a vaguely musty smell... More

Villa d'Este - old world elegance, trompe l'oeil finishes on columns, building facades, tongue-in-cheek sculptures, gorgeous grounds, With its reputation and prices, I was a bit concerned about possible pretentiousness, but instead found the staff to be friendly and extremely accommodating - genuinely wanting to make guests happy. We had a Jr. Suite on the top floor of the "new"... More

Upon arrival we were upgraded to a junior suite and the room was beautiful/spacious. We visited this area for two days and location is right on the water, where you can get a boat ride to all the other attractions in the area. Stay - the service provided by the staff was fantastic as they took care of everything, from... More

Villa d'Este is by far the most beautiful hotel we have ever stayed at. It is the epitome of elegance and grace. The setting along Lago di Como is unparalleled and the 25 acres of hotel grounds are meticulously maintained. On our first morning, we took one of the hotel's special hiking paths past the sporting club and found ourselves... More

Perfectly manicured and maintained. Rooms big and well cleaned. Linens in real linen a rarity nowadays. Bed comfortably cozy. Restaurant stil formal attire! Anachronistic! Gardens an pool spectacular. Bathrooms need un update. A real big shower with glass cabin. Internet working well but impossible to log in with Apple! Price exorbitant for what it is!

My husband and I stayed 3 nights at Villa D'Este in September. The grounds and the views are beautiful. Most of the staff is exceptional! It was a bonus to have television stations that were in English (many places we stay abroad either do not offer or do not have tv channels in English or they are only the news... More

Setting, incredibly beautiful. Service, impeccable. Price, gulp! Not really my sort of thing it is SO expensive but you truly get what you pay for with bells on. Amazing to have a lakeside dining experience of such quality. Still very Italian with just a touristy hint, that's all!
