Honestly, there are not many choices when one travels with older kids to Europe. They either ask you to pay at least 50% extra or book an extra room. With weather reaching high 20s, air conditioning is an important feature for us. Large room with air con?? Expect to pay a lot in Europe.
We booked Hotel Du Lac in our first trip to Lake Como. We were promised a large room which sleeps 3 and a terrace overlooking the lake after agreeing to pay a large premium.
Upon arrival, we weren't disappointed with our room. It was clean and the view was priceless. The only problem is that the room and the bed was facing directly (straight
line) to the staircase and the floor had some cracks. There were minimum furniture in the terrace with dated furniture in the room. However, the room was very clean with good linen provided.
Service was good and receptionist very helpful. Location was excellent with walking distance to just about everywhere. However, breakfasts were sadly way below average with stale baked goods and limited choices. In fact, it was one of the worst breakfast in our last extended trip which involved 6 hotels.
The town Varenna was a gem. A very smart choice as a base when traveling around Lake Como area.
