Albergo del Sole is located in a small, picturesque square some 10/15 minute walk from the train station. Adjacent to the hotel is a small coffee shop/bar and there's another opposite the nearby church. The church has a very loud set of bells! The service was excellent and the people were very helpful. The rooms were not especially spacious or...

Rick Steves states in his tour guide that this hotel has no hint of a lake view but, Rick was wrong!!!! Our room #5 on the 3rd floor did in fact have a lake view as well as the two rooms on the side of us. It isn't a full view but a partial. The room was spotlessly clean, the...

We stayed here for only one night with our 2 children. We stayed in room 7 on the 3rd floor. We had a view of the lake. There was a pull out double sofa and 2 single beds. For Italy b&b standards, this room was quite large. We enjoyed dinner, breakfast and lunch here. It's very conveniently located in the...

My husband and I stayed here for two nights and it was right in the center of Varenna and just a short walking distance to the trains and to the ferries which connected you to the other places on Lake Como. The managers of the hotel were very friendly and accommodating and we had a very comfortable and clean room....

My wife and I enjoyed our recent stay at Albergo del Sole in Varenna, Italy. As many before have mentioned it is well located in this compact town. They operate a restaurant which we did not try except for breakfast which was included. We had room #2 (Trieste?) which is a clean, comfortable double. The staff we interacted with including...

We enjoyed our stay at this small hotel located on the main square in Varenna. There is a restaurant in the back and an outside eating area in the front---which was great sitting in the evening with some wine. A very good breakfast was included. Our room was small and no air conditioning but was very clean. You could actually...

We spent 2 nights at this hotel. Lake Como is everything everyone has always said---it is beautiful and delightful. We enjoyed our visit even though it rained all day one day. We still saw a lot of the lake and visited most of the towns in the central lake region. Varenna is a very lovely town, with a beautiful lake...

A lovely hotel, very comfortable and well located. But what made it so special was their kind help during a stressful time: My husband and I arrived for a four-day stay, but he became very ill and had to go to the emergency room in Lecca. Not only did Enzo and the very thoughtful Flora help us find a dentist,...

We arrived hot and exhausted after our walk from the train station and were immediately brought a cool glass of water. Everyone was very warm and welcoming.
