The view from our balcony of Lake Como. The staff. The short walk each day from town.
Wi fi could be stronger.
Wonderful view, Alex at the desk was helpful and friendly. Room was basic but clean (although we had a cricket share our room- yes he did manage to keep us up most of the night, despite our frantic search).
Outstanding view, private terrace, delightful staff
Location is up a hill. Don't try to walk it from the train station!
This was a nice hotel with and with its elevation, there is a nice view. The breakfast was wonderful. Loved the coffee!
The walk to the town center is not too far and all down hill. That means the walk back is very uphill. Unfortunately, there was thunder, lightening, and POURED.
- Location was great - Quite - Breakfast included - Free Parking - Amazing vistas and views of lake and mountains.
- Hard bed. Even by European standards, it was pretty hard.
The location is spectacular!!! Views from the room were breathtaking! Although the views from the upper level rooms may be more dramatic, we found the view of the lake from the lower level rooms to be equally beautiful. The rooms are clean and comfy... no frills. Breakfast was good.The staff was warm, friendly and helpful. We totally enjoyed our stay!
The room was clean and comfortable, the breakfast was delicious,and the staff was helpful.
Climbing up the hill with our luggage was hard.
The views from our Balcony over Lake Como and off to Bellagio, Friendly Staff, Good breakfast, parking, proximity to Varenna and far more relaxing than staying in Bellagio. Varennas Ferrys also made visiting other towns around the lake a breeze.
Having to leave.
A great value for the price. Wonderful location. Very romantic.
The view of Lake Como from the hotel room with balcony was very nice.
The setting is breathtaking and the views from the hotel are astounding. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. I look forward to visiting again in the future
The view, the staff, nice breakfast, spotless room, pieceful and quiet setting a short walk from the town center.
Our second visit and we enjoyed this hotel very much. It is situated on a hillside overlooking Lake Como and Varenna and the hills and snow covered peaks. We had a lovely room with a balcony overlooking the lake. All rooms have views! Breakfast is great served in the dining room overlooking the lake...spectacular view and excellent food...cereals, yogurt, meat, cheese, eggs, rolls, bread, cakes and croissants. We walked to the town in ten minutes but anyone with mobility issues should be aware of the uphill climb to the hotel. If you come by car, there is free parking. The staff is very kind and helpful and we highly recommend this hotel.
I've never reviewed anything in my life before but this is so amazing
Very interesting place to stay. Wonderful view from all rooms. Food was better than some have said. Staff was very helpful.
I was glad we could unplug the room fragrance.
The view of the lake from our room was breathtaking, the balcony large. It was so quiet at night as the hotel was away from any thoroughfare. We loved the walk down to the gorgeous town of Varenna and all the alleyways winding through. The cafes on the lake were super. The self-drive funicular from the bottom to the top half of the hotel was a brilliant bonus-what fun! Breakfast was fine, we didn't try the eve. meal as we like going out for food. After visiting other towns along Como we decided we were in the best place and loved our unusual hotel. Parking was plentiful and free.
After a meal in the town in the evening, the walk uphill was trying for older folk. Some used taxis and we parked in the parking garage at the bottom and picked the car up on the way back. A minor problem, and it wouldn't stop us coming back.
The view The quietness
Air quality/smell in the entrance to the room building
We were in the Belaggio room with private balcony and had a fantastic view of the lake and the town. There were 2 chairs but needs a small table, but we commandeered the bathroom stool for the job. The bed was comfy and there were extra pillows. The weather was unseasonably cool and we left the balcony doors open at night, it was great to wake up to the view from the bed. Some reviews I read said the coffee wasn't good, but I was happy with the selection, they had decaffeinated options, and it tasted good to me.
The bathroom was tight.
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.
