The view The quietness
Air quality/smell in the entrance to the room building
Alexandra on reception was fantastic,very helpful and a joy to see whenever we passed through. Our first visit to an Italian lake and it was very special. The light over the lake changes regularly and no matter what the weather is it looks pretty good. The hotel is in a very peaceful location and the lift up the hill is fantastic. Loved it.
If you don't like to walk 10 minutes or so to town then this is not the place for you. If you happily walk so that you can awake in the mornings for a spectacular view of Lake Como, this is the place for you!
Room and bathroom were a bit small, but for the price, you expect it.
Best hotel ever
the view and location friendly staff
uncomfortable beds poor breakfast
view over the COMO lake
- breakfast - nothing "special" - very bad for people with (smaller) children.
Room was great with amazing views, I don't think a better view of the lake is possible.I stayed on the upper level accessible via elevators only. Room was very comfortable and the staff couldn't be more friendly and helpful. I will definately return.
The walk up from the village was strenuous in hot weather so older people should be aware of this, but taken slowly its fine.
Once you get over the drive up the narrow single track to the hotel the views are spectacular. All rooms with balconies have the same view. Friendly welcome on arrival. Going to the upper level on the funicular was a unique experience. Stayed one night which was enough, wouldn't have chosen this hotel for a week.
Room was basic. Had a room with a lake view and the view was the best thing about it. Bathroom was very small. No tea and coffee facilities or minibar. Had to bring bags to room ourselves. Dinner in the restaurant had a limited menu and pasta was undercooked. Again, beautiful 180* views in the restaurant. Breakfast was adequate but have had better breakfasts in Italy in similar hotels.
The balcany, wonderful view over the Comolake.
The room was nothing special and the A/C did not work so well.
Room with terrace overlooking the lake - beautiful views Free hotel parking Funicular lift up the mountainside Varenna is a cool town and a great base for visiting the mid-lake region, including Bellagio
No real restaurant - basically a snack bar (good breakfast though) Long climb from town to the lower level of the hotel (where the funicular starts) A few biting ants in the bedroom
A stunning location and a charming hotel.
Amazing views, great staff, sitting on the terrace drinking really good Italian wine then enjoying a fantastic dinner
If you don't like walking hills it is probably not the place to go as the property is up a steep hill. We had no problems with this as we were aware when we booked
Location, view, selectivity. Varenna is a quite but charming location and a great base for the rest of the lake.
Breakfast is adequate but nothing to shout about but this was a very minor issue really
Beautiful location, clean rooms, nice breakfast, nice staff. My second stay at this location. Take taxi from train station, its a fair distance.
They moved the breakfast and bar down to the low level. Used to be on the wonderful high stone terrace on upper building and was nice to be able to have a drink there with the view.
The 180 degree views from our balcony over Lake Como were spectacular. The staff were very friendly and accommodating and always helpful with suggestions of activities and travel options. Very nice and plentiful breakfast.
Nothing to not like.
The view was great, free parking and room satisfactory.
Breakfast was poor, juices not replaced and wifi did not work the whole four nights we were there.
Too far from everything. The food was of poor quality, either canned, frozen or per packaged. It was very hot when we stayed there and the air conditioning only runs from 12:00 24:00. So it cuts off in the middle of the night.
The hotel is in a lovely location. Our stay there was most enjoyable.
I cannot think of anything we did not like.
This is one of my favorite places in Italy. The view is incredible! You can take a funicular (2) up even higher with incredible rooms on the top. There is a lovely terrace as well. The staff is wonderful. If you are coming to Lake Como, this is the only hotel to stay. They also offer light dinners at a very reasonable cost...why go down into town as this hotel has the best view anyplace!
Nothing. Even tho it is up a steep road that looks difficult to drive, it really isn't. You might think you are a ways from town, but it only takes 10 minutes to walk into town. The location, views, and comfort of this hotel are totally worth it.
Easy walk to city center Fantastic views of Lake Como from both the main level of the hotel and especially the upper level rooms and terrace. Relaxing to have your morning coffee and breakfast overlooking the colors of the cities and Lake Como. Great panoramic view of the area which you could not see if you stayed in one of the hotels in the plaza of Varenna. Delightful hotel. When shopping in Varenna, visit " il Pozzo" a small shop along the waterfront and speak with the owner, Giorgio, delightful, engaging and very helpful.
This hotel is in a beautiful spot with killer views, and was very comfortable. The staff were helpful and friendly and all had much better English than we had Italian! For the money that it costs I do think they could have real juice and real coffee at breakfast . We have had much better on our trip from less expensive hotels. Otherwise everything else was good.
Coffee and juice.
Amazing View Very Peaceful and Quiet Great Staff Unbelievably Unique This is a fantastic hotel and would recommend it to anyone
The rooms are nothing special, but that's not the reason to stay here. This is all about the view
We loved the view from this cliff-hanging hotel. Varenna is a very beautiful town. There are ferry boats to take you all around the mid-section of Lake Como -- very beautiful.
As an older person, it was a little hard having to walk up and down the steep hill to the hotel each time we went out. If we drove, there was little parking except in the town garage.
fantastic view over Lake Como
The view was outstanding, the bed was comfortable and the staff were wonderful. We especially enjoyed speaking with Laura. She was so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.
