“A Room with a View”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

We had the pleasure of staying for two nights in October. Varenna was the first stop in a two week tour of Northern Italy and we could not have been more pleased to have started our trip at this lovely property. Due to a late bus from the airport to the Milan train station we missed our anticipated train and were not able to arrive until 9:30 in the evening. After calling the property to inform them of this they graciously accommodated us for a late dinner which was absolutely wonderful. We highly recommend having dinner here if you can. The staff was warm and welcoming and very helpful in answering any questions we had during our stay.

We stayed in Room 5 with a small balcony. The view is the star here, waking up to a first row view of Lake Como with the mountains in the background was breathtaking. I highly recommend enjoying a glass of wine while taking in the natural beauty and the charm of Varenna around you. The room was simple but comfortable. The proprietors have done an excellent job of renovating the property, updating where necessary (compact, but modern bathroom, great shower) while respecting the character that makes the house unique. Unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate for breakfasting on their terrace, but the dining room takes full advantage of the stunning views to enjoy while planning your day over great coffee and good food.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Albergo Milano as well as Varenna itself. Highly recommended as a home base to enjoy the beauty of the area and let your pulse slow.

Room Tip: Splurge for a room with a view, you'll be glad you did.

Loved this boutique B&B! It was even nicer in person than on the website, which is rare...I feel like it's usually the reverse. Everyone was very nice and accommodating. We stayed in the Casa Rossa with a lake view that I felt was an excellent value. The room was clean, comfy and the bathroom was beautiful, as well as the view!! It was a great location in Varenna, and I would most definitely go back.

Room Tip: I didn't mind staying out of the main hotel part in the Casa Rossa...I thought it was quiet and...

Stayed in one of the Cassa apartments. It was great. Plenty of room, small kitchen, nice bathroom. Short walk to the main hotel where breakfast is served each morning. The view from the hotel is awesome. The food at the hotel restaurant was also fantastic.I would recommend the fixed price menu 3 coarse dinner..several selections to choose from. Staff very friendly and helpful. If going to Lake Como stay here in the small town of Varenna.Great area to explore the lake from.

Nice place with clean small rooms. Our partial lake view room was exactly that. Updated bathroom. Wifi in room iffy. Nice couple runs this but it wasn't as good as expected, especially for the price.. Very difficult to get to unless walking in Italy. First time in 15 years of traveling by car in Italy to small towns that I could drive up to, or even close to,the hotel. No help for luggage. No parking. Breakfast was typical for small Italian inn. Nice to eat on the terrace in good weather.

We stayed in the Casa Rossa apartment and booked the honeymoon package. Even though the weather wasn't perfect we fell in love with Varenna. The apartment had a beatiful terrace and the staff truly makes you feel at home. They are very helpful and friendly, and our room as very clean and seem to genuinely care that you enjoy your stay. Their restaurant was also the best meal we had during our stay, although their are many great eats in Varenna. While Bellagio may get most of the attention, Varenna felt much more authentic and staying at a place like this makes it that much more enjoyable. Even if you are unable to stay at the hotel or the Casa Rossa, I highly recommend trying their restaurant to get a feel of what they have to offer.

this was a beautiful place/location. We had a wonderfully relaxing time after 2 weeks of travel through Italy on our 15 year anniversary. Highly recommend - great staff, excellent service and beautiful location.

Loved loved this hotel , very clean, friendly staff , ready to help you with dinner bookings or excursions. Our balcony overlooked lake Como & the alps, it snowed in the alps when we were there so we had a added bonus snowcapped mountains , awesome !! Great breakfast ,their dinning area overlooking the lake. The only downside ,no lift ,very challenging going up those stairs with a heavy suitcase , but we will stay there again , planning to go back in 2015 to celebrate our 15th. Wedding Anniversary , the awesome views from the balcony is so worth it.
