We spent four wonderful days here at the beginning of our most recent European trip. The staff is great, the breakfasts and lunches were delicious, and the location is perfect. A perfect place
to get over jet lag. We flew into Milan and took a taxi to the hotel, which was definitly worth
the splurge. We had room 32, which had a small terrace overlooking the lake. The room was cozy, but the bed was quite comfortable.

This was the first hotel we stayed on a two week trip to Italy. A beautiful location with stunning views from the terrace where we ate breakfast and lunch . A very warm and welcoming staff that unfortunately was not not able to save us from the sewer smell coming from the drains in room number 1 . In addition the advertised balcony was only 2 feet wide so not really able to sit and enjoy the view. We met other guests that were happy with their rooms above the dining terrace so if you stay request one of these. Varenna is a lovely town on Lake Como and Hotel Du Lac is great option as long as you avoid room 1 .

We had a great, large room with a balcony and were very happy with the experience. Staff were extremely friendly an helpful. Hotel is in a reasonably private positon, but also very close to a large number of restaurants (Bar Milo our favourite).
Key advice: don't even think of walking from the railway station, it may look close but its not a pleasant experience if your wheeling suitcases behind you. Think very pronounced cobblestones and you' ll get the picture.

Room Tip: Room 12 was excellent.

We have the pleasure of visiting Varenna and the Lake Como area for 3 nights recently. We stayed at the Hotel du Lac because of the reviews and the beautiful location of the hotel. We were somewhat disappointed in the experience. The staff was helpful in any assistance and recommendations for dinner and ferry timetables. The breakfast was the worst we have had in our 3 weeks in Italy. It was ok but not what I was expecting from a hotel at this price point.
We stayed in room 1 which is located outside the main building. The smell of sewer from the shower was very strong. The shower doors had mould on them. We did ask for another room or any kind of help with the stench and got little in response . The cleaning staff did pour bleach down the shower drain on the second night. We had to cover the shower drain with a towel to keep the smell down.
I would still recommend this hotel but encourage anyone from staying in room 1!

Great service, quiet, beautiful views, super clean, nice amenities, fabulous breakfast, pretty bar with great hors d'oeuvres. We had room 30 with a partial lake view but the private terrace was stunning, very private and quiet. The sun hit it in the afternoon, keeping us warm. It was the perfect place to enjoy a bottle of wine. The beds are a little hard for my taste, so I gave it four stars for sleep quality.

Room Tip: Room 30 was the only one available when we booked two weeks prior to our stay. Don't be put off by the partial lake view. Yes, it was partial, but the privacy and quiet of our own terrace made up for it.
