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...

What a pleasure to visit Varenna, Lake Como, Italy again. I have been twice in past years but did not have the ability to stay as long as I would have preferred. In May 2016, my two travel companions and I arrived in Varenna via train. Cannot explain that feeling of AHHHH when you get off the train, go through...

We stayed in the annex building at the suggestion of the manager. So glad as the room had both air conditioning and a wonderful full sun veranda all to ourselves, our books and a glass of wine. Overlooking the plaza and the ferry. Wonderful morning hikes and late afternoon walks. We had a car and had no problem with parking...

Great views of the lake. Friendly staff. Rooms are large and historic. It is a bit noisy with the arriving and departing ferries right outside. But the location cannot be beat. Directly on the lake and 3 minutes walk from the train station.

This is an older hotel with the most delightful staff. A bit quirky and shabby chic but it fits the ambience of this old beautiful area. We had dinner in the hotel and it was superb. The hotel is near both ferry stops which make it a perfect jumping off point for the other towns. Walk to town a breeze...

We were welcomed by Laura who was so excited to show us the Villa we were staying in. It was our honeymoon and we had a room in the Villa Torretta. It was everything I could have dreamed of. The room is beautifully decorated and the bathroom is huge with 2 double sinks and a great shower. The double doors...

Laura is lovely in a firm serious way! She was clear on arrival when payment was needed and I found this reassuring and funny! It was my husband's birthday and I had asked for a cake and wine to be in the room on our arrival(was going to pay for it) and despite email to say yes, it wasn't there!...
