Excellent Hotel - perfect rooms, beautiful gardens, best concierge and stuff. You really have to read history of this place in order to feel it. We booked exclusive junior suite and had a lake view. Had a chance to enjoy pool and rent a boat for a few hours and cruse lake Como - curtsy of Villa d'Este. Breakfast was...

Treat yourself, even for one day as my husband and I did, you will remember it for the rest of your life..I felt like a Queen, better than a Queen, staying in this magnificent yet low key Hotel/Villa.

After reading many reviews from people and magazines, looking at photos from this place and surroundings for several years, finally the day arrived that I booked a 3 nights stay for part of a trip in Europe to celebrate our 7 years wedding anniversary in mid June. When I book a hotel I always try to stay at "Leading Hotels...

We have just returned from a sensational stay at Villa D'Este. Having already stayed at Casta Diva the experience was like chalk and cheese. Everything at Villa D'Este was just perfection. It's as if time has stood still in this Grand Dame of Italy and at breakfast one morning I told my husband that it reminded me of childhood holidays...

What does the fictional PBS television series Crawley family have in common with Villa D' Este? Well, they could have come to this estate for their holiday and feel very comfortable in the surroundings, formality and richness of hotel and staff. What makes a great experience at this hotel are the people who support this grand operation. Words can't express...

We stayed for several days at Villa D'Este and it was truly a wonderful experience. The location is perfect, on the western shore of Lake Como in Cernobbio. Its grounds extend up the mountain, including these fascinating gardens, sculptures, and a man made replica of Roman ruins made by the original owner's wife to keep her General husband amused. It's...

If you are willing to splurge a bit to enjoy lunch in a superb setting, I recommend the terrace at Villa d'Este. The service is very professional albeit a bit brusque and the food is very good. At the end of your meal, you receive lovely petit fours to enjoy with your coffee and they bring out fresh cotton candy...

Perfect places still exist in this world. I don't think that you can find better place on the lake Como; it is superb, but cosy and lovely. Rare combination. One of the best places to enjoy nature and hospitality.

Villa d'Este is a very special place, far more than a hotel. Every view and every turn has a special surprise. Everything was so perfect, it's difficult to express. Villa d'Este also has an understated elegance in it decor.
