Laura, the owner was a superb host
Staff and venue were brilliant
The staff was very helpful and efficient, the room big and bathroom comfortable. Would go back for a longer stay.
Wonderful stay at Hotel Olivedo! The staff was so friendly they treated us like close friends they are so friendly! The Hotel itself is so romantic, the view is impeccable and the room and hotel in general is great Very clean and well serviced ! We will definitely visit the hotel and varenna again in the near future!
Everything was great.
Hotel is ideally situated next to the ferry wharf and overlooks the lake - we had a picture perfect view from our room which was clean, spacious and well-appointment.
The staff/owners could not have been nicer
Friendly staff, warm welcome all you would hope for on Holiday.
From our Hostess Laura's welcome greeting to old world charm of hotel to food to location, loved it all.
the lady who ran the hotel was absolutely wonderful, very welcoming and her staff very friendly. I had a great break there. place was really lovely to stay at. first view getting off the ferry was amazing and it lived up to its photo. kind regards, Marian from Sydney.
This hotel is set up for couples, not for families. We needed to book 2 rooms which was expensive. The heating was switched off over night and and the hot water was not switched on in the morning so we had cold showers at 7:30 am. Hotel manager initially denied that this was the case even though two rooms on different floors left the hot water taps running for ten minutes. Eventually they admitted that the hot water is switched off! No compensation offered. Nice hotel but felt that they were trying to save money and still charge premium rates. Disappointing customer service.
Great hotel with nice views of the lake. Average breakfast.
The hotel is located in a fantastic building with the most beautiful view over the lake. Perfect if you want to spend a peaceful time. Laura, the owner was very friendly and we felt like at home, we even were invited to have lunch with her and her mother on Christmas Day!
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.
Wished I had booked a longer stay.
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!
Occasionally, there was the smell of cigarette smoke (I am a non-smoker).
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.
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.
You can forgive everything that isn't perfect because it isn't supposed to be
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.
- 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!
Location near Train Station and Ferry pier
No stand up shower
Great host, location, great view.
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.
Often lost internet connection.
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.
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.
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
The menu selections were a bit limited and over priced.
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.
Olde world charm -like stepping back to the 30's with modern conveniences. Staff were charming and obliging. Location is sensational.
