We watched a couple of travel YouTubes of Varenna and this place looked interesting so we booked for our trip to here. It was better than imagined. Comfy room, lovely decor and first class staff who attended our every need

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights as part of a 4 week holiday. It was recommended by friends who had stayed here the previous year. This is wonderful hotel, full of charm and character run by a local family - I believe that they are the 3rd generation owning and running the hotel. We had a room...

We had a room with lake view, it was great. Strongly recomend arriving from Bellagio by ferry. The approach to Varenna from the ferry at dusk when lights were reflecting on the lake, and church bells could be heard set an incredible ambience that carried through the stay.

Nice little Italian hotel right on the waterfront of Lake Como. Within walking distance of everything: restaurants, train station, shopping, post office. Access to the walking path is right out the front door.

You are paying for the view here, which is what we wanted so that worked for us. Very easy walk from the train, right next to the ferry and a short walk to restaurants. The room was clean and comfortable, can’t really ask for more than that.

We loved this place. We a large room with a large wardrobe, dresser, desk, two chairs, and coffee table along with the bed. The décor was very old-fashioned -- kind of like visiting your grandmother. It was rather charming. The bathroom was more modern and beautiful marble. My husband loved the large wastebasket in the bathroom. Really! His pet peeve...

Fell in love with Lake Como and Vareena when we stayed here. We stayed for 2 nights and the hotel was just lovely. It felt like a home away from home. Our room had so much character and it was quite spacious. It was on the first floor and it had a little alcove that overlooked the lake. All the...
