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...

This place is family run with a huge bedroom and sitting area with shutters that open out to a gorgeous view of Lake Como. The bathroom was huge and very nice.

My husband and I stayed in this hotel in September. We paid €190 for a double room with lake view. What we got was a tawdry room with ramshackle furniture and the hardest bed we've ever slept in. The noisy and polluting ferry terminal is right outside the front door( this alone must mean the prices should be reduced) ....

This wonderfully situated hotel in the old style is just across the street from the ferry landing and just a short walk from the train station. And while it has possibly the world's smallest elevator, the rooms have old world charm. We had a corner room on the top floor overlooking the lake. What a lovely view and so nice...

We stayed in the annex which had a beautiful view and was quite roomy and comfortable. The location was great, near the ferry and train station and only a short walk to downtown Varenna. The staff was very accommodating throughout our stay, beginning with our late check in time. We would definitely stay here again if we visit Lake Como...
