Overall hygiene and cleanness of bathrooms.
Manager Marco speaks English and most helpful in all areas. Upgrade to room with panoramic glimpse. Courtesy coffees before very filling breakfast. Expensive but still the best value for money place in entire 'closed shop'village.
WiFi unstable. Marco promises to upgrade
Price was extremely reasonable for the Lake Como area
There was nothing I disliked but tourists who want a more upscale place and a large luxurious room should keep in mind that you get what you pay for.
The owners and their son were very attentive to whatever we needed. There is no view but you can't ask for a better location for convenience. Loved it!
Location Price Staff (spoke great english) Breakfast
Very friendly and helpful staff. Made us feel comfortable in every way. Dining was most excellent...great dishes, tasty home style and table service spot on. Made to feel welcome and would stay again!!
Parking is tough...but that appears to be Varenna.
Friendly staff and great location
The owner and staff were most kind and helpful and Varenna can't be beat.
The inconvenience of WiFi I am getting used to in Italy, except the big cities. Besides I didn't go here to set on a computer!
The hotel was very clean and comfortable. The staff went out of their way to make you feel at home.Nothing was too much trouble. We had an 18month old baby with us and had difficulty finding a shop that sold milk. They provided this for us for the duration of our stay at no extra cost. When we left we felt we were leaving our family behind.. You will not be disappointed if you stay here.
No tea and coffee facilities in room but the restaurant is only downstairs.
We were greeted in a friendly manner. The staff was very nice and spoke some English. Our room was in the back, away from the road and was very quiet. The hotel was a short walk from the train station. Good value.
Wi-fi connection was a little complicated.
The hotel is clean, comfortable and has a family feel to it. It is not top of the range and doesn't pretend to be. The staff are very helpful and friendly and the restaurant offers good quality meals at a reasonable price. The rooms are spacious and functional. It is located close to the railway station and ferry
A bit noisy during the day but double glazed windows cover this and the traffic ceases in early evening so sleep is not affected
Close to train station and ferry dock, very nice staff
Pillows were lumpy and hard, caused my husband neck pains for a few days.
short walk from railway station and short walk to the lake. Close to the Information Centre and the local cafe/newsagent.
very disappointed with the breakfast, fruit juice, croissants, breadrolls - no cereals nor fruit - on one morning when there were more than a handful of visitors, there were a few cakes.
Room was a good size and breakfast was quite good. Very good location but no views of lake. Staff was very friendly and acommodating.
Street was a bit noisy and not a good view...but only a two minute walk to a great view.
Fantastic and helpful staff. Good location.
Very spartan interior. Not exceedingly luxurious, but if you understand that from the get-go, it's fine.
The staff here was fantastic! It's a small family run business and you can tell they take pride in their work and customer service. The beds were pretty good for an Italian hotel. The windows opened for a wonderful breeze off the lake. The location was great. It was a close enough walk to/from the train station with our bags. It was also just straight up the hill from the harbor area. Nearby Gelateria riva is one of the most delicious gelaterias in Italy. Varenna is a great home base for a trip to lake como. It's a beautiful quiet little city.
This hotel was great. We only had a couple of small complaints. The shower was very small and the entrance in the back (needed to get to the rooms) is supposed to stay locked, which is great for security, but the lock sticks. It was difficult to open. Even with these small complaints we would still stay there again.
- Dirty washbasin in the bathroom and the actual room - neither was cleaned properly before my arrival or during my stay. - Paper-thin walls between the rooms. - Noise caused by a family that owns an apartment above the hotel. - Breakfast. There was a limited choice of food and whatever was provided was of a low-grade quality. - Internet practically didn't work in my room. They said that nearby mountains caused a problem. Interestingly, no mountains ever caused a problem in Turkey or Montenegro. During my 2 months of travel I stayed in a number of hotels and B&Bs. Some were better than others, of course. Hotel Montecodeno was the most expensive and the worst of them all.
The staff were very friendly and helpful.
Location within easy walking Eustace of sites we wanted to visit.
Ticked me off that you had to pay for wifi. We went to free wifi places instead.
The family went out of their way to extend a Happy Birthday to my niece, and presented her with a beautiful flowering plant at breakfast. Very sweet ladies at the front desk. The staff were very friendly and asked us to return again in the future.
Doors were locked so that one needed the key to leave the room, and also the door to the outside was locked, so God forbid there was a fire or an emergency and the key wasn't readily available. This was very concerning. Also, one of the twin beds was shot. My niece kindly used the bed, but it was awful and she woke up sore. Basically it had a huge dip in the mattress so one could not sleep comfortably on it.
Owners Lydia and son, Marco, were delightful and hospitable. Lydia's homemade lasagna for dinner was like no other. Location is easy walk from train station, and as a budget traveler, I could have asked for little more. The WiFi was sketchy, but it has been everywhere else in Italy for me, too.
Stairs only to rooms.
Hotel is good location and near the port, and not far from train station just 10 mins by walk.
no lift so, have to carry big and heavy luggage to the room.
Great staff. Friendly, helpful, accommodating. Plane room that was just fine for a few nights sleep. Close to the train station. Close to the ferry terminal. Located on the route to the castle ruins at the top of the hill.
Tight squeeze between the shower pan and toilet.
Nice location. Convenient to train station, water front shops and restaurants, lake boats
Staff had poor English, so we were mostly on our own. The English was so bad, that they didn't even tell us that we had a free breakfast included in our rate.
The service - friendliness and helpfulness of the staff
The pillows were a bit too firm
