Le Ortensie Due
Ranked #6 of 7 Lierna B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 11, 2013

We have so far stayed at Le Ortensie 3 times and plan to stay there once again this year.
The bedrooms are comfortable and clean, the b&b itself is an excellent location, right next to the lake and near transportation/shops and good restaurants. It is also has less tourists, so it is lovely and quiet.
The owner of the b&b is very welcoming and lovely, she gave us any information we needed on arrival, and has surprised us with evening meals in the past, which was a lovely touch.
Needless to say, the breakfasts are fantastic.
All in all, this is easily the best b&b we have stayed at.

We(4 of us) have visited Lake Garda 3 times and loved it, but wanted to experience Lake Como. This lovely b/b situated in Lierna(between Lecco & Varenna) was just what we hoped it would be. The top balcony where breakfast could be taken had wonderful views of Lake Como, and the owners Emilia & Pietro were great hosts. The breakfast varied every day, and the evening meal that came as part of our deal was first class, the best rissoto I have ever eaten. Also included in our 5 day stay was a complimentary hop on hop off cruise on the lake, which we loved. Belaggio is a must and also Bergamo where we had a lovely lunch on our way to the airport at Milan. If you have the time take a ride on the Bernina Express to St Moritz, a lovely rail journey. We thoroughly recommend this guest house and the owners who could not have been more welcoming.

I recently stayed at Le Ortensie Due with my boyfriend for a weekend trip to Lake Como. The hotel is located in Lierna, which is between Lecco and Varenna along the lake. There is not much to do in Lierna itself, but there are a few restaurants and a place for swimming if you are not necessarily interested in sightseeing around the lake. If you are, it's easy enough to walk to the train station (10 minute walk) and take a 10 minute train ride to Varenna, from which you can access other famous Lake Como towns by ferry or water taxi. The house is gorgeous with a nice breakfast on the balcony overlooking some gardens and the lake - the owner speaks english, but occasionally it's hard to understand so it's definitely easier to stay here if you speak a little Italian. It's also important to remember to shut your blinds since even seemingly private areas of the backyard are actually public spaces. Overall I would recommend it!

My fiancé and me stayed att this place for four nights. The reason we chose this was mainly because of the many positive entries at this site. The location is really great, close to a beatiful beach and a pizzeria with a great view. The rooms are OK and the garden aswell. I have stayed at two other accomodations in the area of Lago di Como where I was very satisfied in particular with the service. But at this place service was not at it´s peak. The landlady was abscent at our arrival (we waited for almost half an hour before she eventually showed up), we did not get the room that we had reserved, and during our stay we experienced a "forgotten" breakfast. All these things might still have been OK if the landlady would have had a warm and caring attitude. But she had not.

We were traveling with another couple and needed a last minute place to stay on the Lake. I saw a sign for B&B and sstopped in. The hostess owner was sooo hospitable. She made us feel like family. The price was so reasonable and the rooms were clean & comfortable with a private bathroom, free wifi, too. Breakfast was a beautiful spread complete with bottomless coffee in her idyllic garden looking out to the lake. What a find! Close to great restaurants in Varenna.

This is a reasonably priced alternative near Varenna on Lake Como. This three room B&B is in the small lakeside village of Lierna just minutes from Varenna. The rooms are adequate and ours had a ensuite bathroom. The breakfast room and deck have a lakeview. Its only a short stroll to the village and its beach. The breakfast is very nice and varies each day. Your host Liu is very warm and helpful. Parking is provided.
