Warm cozy room and good breakfasts. Also, restaurant served excellent meals.
Excellent location, charming ambiance and warm hospitality,
Great location, right on the water, friendly staff, and very beautiful rooms.
Exceptional service and old world charm. Ideal location to town center, train station and ferries. Hotel owner Laura is molta simpatico. I still dream about Varenna and Hotel Olivedo!
Wished I had booked a longer stay.
I thought this was a great hotel.. It is walking distance from the train station in Varenna. I had a superior room with a lake view and balcony. The room was a good size, large comfortable bed, large washroom with shower.It also had a good size wardrobe, bureau,safe, end tables and chairs. It was very clean and tastefully decorated with antiques which gave it a nice character. Wonderful staff. Very helpful and professional.
Occasionally, there was the smell of cigarette smoke (I am a non-smoker).
Spacious rooms and very relaxing atmosphere. Located right next to the dock so a great location to ferry over to other cities. We had lunch there when we checked in and it was delicious. Loved the balcony room.
What a wonderful hotel. Slightly in a time warp but extremely refreshing as it doesn't fit into a chain mould. Wonderful reception from the owner and the most fabulous location on Lake Como. Friendly welcome lovely dinner and the whole place s full of character. If you don't like old Italy you shouldn't be here anyway.
You can forgive everything that isn't perfect because it isn't supposed to be
Location near Train Station and Ferry pier
- Bedroom runned down (needs updating) - Bed too high - Hotel deducted an amount through my credit card although we arrive in the afternoon. We prefer to pay in cash!
Great host, location, great view.
No stand up shower
Laura was totally charming and we loved staying at Hotel Olivedo. It was very convenient to the ferry and many good restaurants. Have stayed in Varenna previously and really couldn't wait to come back. We were not disappointed.
Located in front of the port and lake view. Very clean room and nice furnishings. Spacious bathroom and good quality accessories. Comfortable bed . Lake view room is very impressive.
Often lost internet connection.
Location near train station Location near ferries Location near cafes and other restaurants. Location near the Passerella and gardens. Location on the lake. The Olivedo Family
Hard to complain when the location and the hotel and staff were so fantastic. I f I had to complain about anything it would be the hard mattress, but we would stay here again and again.
Our room was huge with two windows facing the lake, with a tiny balcony. Very nice period furnishings. Updated bathroom. it was right at the ferry dock for easy trips to other small towns on the lake. Good selection for breakfast.
The menu selections were a bit limited and over priced.
Olde world charm -like stepping back to the 30's with modern conveniences. Staff were charming and obliging. Location is sensational.
Our stay at the Hotel Olivedo was truly magical from the moment we arrived. The location is superior, the view fantastic! We had a lake view room with a balcony and double glazed windows so we were not awakened by the ferry and the location was very convenient for the lake boats and ferry. We loved the vintage furniture and grand dining room. The bathroom was large and modern and very clean. The food was wonderful, we ate dinner in the dining room all four nights that we stayed there. Laura and her staff will take good care of you!
There wasn't anything we didn't like.
The location was great. Food was excellent, both breakfast and dinner.
We were on the top floor, could not see out the windows since it was too high. The shower was terrible. No enclosure and no curtain. The shower head was on a flex hose, but so low, you had to sit in the tub to shower. Water got all over the floor. The owner was not very hospitable. If you stay here, request a room with a balcony and full shower.
We took a room facing the lake and the car jetty situated away from the main hotel building. It was spacious and very quaint in its design but cosy at the same time. Loved it! The lady owner was also very hospitable and friendly. The railway station was a short walking distance from the hotel down a slope.
As it was situated near the car jetty, it was a bit noisy in the morning. The hotel room was also just above a cafe and although the noise level in the evening was acceptable to us, I am not sure if it will be bad during the high peak season. We were there in late Sept. Another thing to take note of is the proximity of the hotel to the railway station. The cab fare up the slope to the station which took less than a minute cost us €8!
Stunning location, very friendly and helpful staff.
I stayed at the hotel for four nights, I've been taken cared off well. The convenient location (next to the ferry) is also a plus.
location was great
Good size room with nice paintings and period furnishings..beautiful views of lake and mountains. Easy to find and easy access to ferry travel on the lake.....tho very limited schedule to Varenna beginning in October. Secure tho expensive parking. Laura very much in charge and most helpful usually. Llovely interior architectural features. Fun to "people watch" from balcony or outside seating. Lovely, short walk to central Varenna
Elevator risky, someone stuck in it while we were there. Also tiny. Breakfast adequate....dinner very good quality but expensive. Laura cooled after first couple of days....was told that happens when you donot eat there every night. Bathroom big enough for one....tub/shower design very difficult.
Laura….greeted us by name when we stepped out of the taxi. She has so much character….Just loved her personality. The hotel is perfectly located to the ferry and train station. The views from our hotel room were breath taking. I really felt a part of this beautiful town.
The staff was very friendly and the location across from the ferries was nice.
We were very disappointed with our room. It was our 30th anniversary and we requested a room with a view. We got an attic 4th floor room with a view if you lay flat on the floor or or stepped up onto a bench to look out a window. Bathroom was a tub with hand held shower. Typical Italian breakfast but dinner at restaurant was just okay.
Beautiful classic old hotel on the harbor by the ferries. Excellent restaurant.
lousy Wi-Fi only works in the downstairs dining room. Mediocre breakfast compared to other hotels in Italy
Staff were friendly and helpful at all times. We had a lovely spacious room with an ensuite and our roomed openned onto a terrace which had a great view of the lake. Wi-fi was free, rooms were clean. The Hotel is positioned near the ferry wharf, excellent location.
