The location of this hotel is superb and it's even better if you splurge on a lake view. It's worth it.
It's not a heated pool but, hey, life is good.
The rooms were newly renovated & nicely decorated. It felt quiet & private. There was a breathtaking view from the room & a very comfortable terrace. It has numerous & spacious common areas. We enjoyed free hotel merchandise such as a reuseable shopping bag & slippers. We appreciated the poolside bar service, including a complimentary glass of champagne. It's easy to reach on foot from the train station, easy access on foot to the ferry & waterfront walk & there are variety of dining options in & around the hotel. Convenient shopping on same block as hotel to buy wine, beer, water & snacks, train tickets & caffe.
TVs were mounted a little bit too high on the wall so that when laying in bed, the angle creates a glare that makes it slightly difficult to see the screen. I love a waterfall showerhead, but it's mounted in a way so that your face practically touches the glass of the shower door. I also wish that the lake were accessible directly from the property. (Perhaps it is & I should've asked.) Although the hotel is directly on the lake, it appeared as if you would have to exit the hotel & access the lake from the public access point alongside the hotel to swim in the lake itself.
Upgraded to a lovely spacious room with a balcony overlooking Lake Como. Hugh bathroom - shower had great water pressure. Staff were helpful with making bookings / recommendations for meals. Also received a welcome drink on our first evening. Good selection if breakfast buffet items.
Wifi wasn't included. The wifi that we paid for was very weak and only worked in the hotel lobby (and not in the room).
We were absolutely thrilled to experience the gorgeous views and relaxation of Varenna and Lake Como from this hotel. We arrived here at the end of a two week trip through France and Italy, and everything about the hotel was just what we needed. The breakfast spread was fabulous - everything from eggs, fruits, salad, meats, juice, and even prosecco. Every aspect of our stay made us feel so welcome, from the cocktails and the service to the late night pizza made especially for us by the cafe the evening we arrived. A must stay if you're heading to Varenna!
Location is in principal plaza of town and just up the street from two beautiful villas. Hotel environs quiet at night but bustles with activity for much of the day. You can walk to every point in town in minutes. Hotel fronts on Lake Como affording great view of lake and surrounding towns including famed Bellagio which is great to visit and shop but too thronging with tourists. Stay in Ravenna! Hotel looks to be recently updated and it is noticeable. Sleep experience was entirely positive so long as you are prepared to be woken at 7:00 a.m. by church bells that seem to clang forever (they waken the whole town, I'm sure).
Hotel internet service is stupidly arcane and is charged for. Annoying but it works really well. My wife would have appreciated a set of wash cloths but like many hotels in Europe these are not provided.
The hotel is attractive,comfortable with responsive staff. It is extremely convenient for someone traveling by car. We stayed on the side with the square which could be noisy but the closed windows kept the room quiet.
The view of the Lake from the room is outstanding. The setting is relaxing, quiet and the room comfortable.
American pop music in the restaurant is incongruous with our expectations of Italy.
The chaise lounge, the bed, the toiletries and were of excellent quality. But that view. This was actually the best upgrade, largest room that we ever had in Europe. Spectacular. Even the updates to their pizzeria and cafe were really nice (food was good too!). I cannot express enough how much we loved our stay here, we actually wished we spent more time. Junior suite was definitely worth it.
Housekeeping is thorough but they are like bulls in a China shop at 2pm -- overturning everything. Also it was impossible to get a taxi when our train came, the cab stand was empty and we waited a long time before anyone came (practically until the next train came in, 20-30 minutes later). Although very close to the train station, we had very heavy bags. (See this isn't even a real criticism of the hotel!)
Clean, modern, spacious and comfortable. Great location. Beautiful view from front with old church or back with lake view. Wonderful pizza place on site with take away, where they actually hand toss the dough.
wifi is spotty
View was wonderful. Staff was warm, friendly and very helpful. Room was lovely with great rainshower. Location on the square was perfect. Breakfast great.
The location of this hotel is excellent and the facilities and services very nice. We were welcomed with a bottle of Prosecco which we enjoyed from the balcony.
Had to pay for parking
Pleasant staff in the dining room Good bistro restaurant
Wifi expensive and not a good signal No bar atmosphere the area is not up to standard
The setting on the lake with views in all directions is gorgeous. The staff was eager to please and always helpful.
Location, room size, amenities
Stuffy restaurant Maitre de
the hotel staff was great! professional and very friendly. Manuella, Stefania, Carlo and Livio. I work at the Ritz Carlton Grand Cayman. We are trained to provide the highest level of service to our guests. I felt the same leve of service was provided to me. Thank you! I had been traveling from Rome, NICe and barcelona. I finally had a place to kick my feet up and enjoy the views. My days there went to fast so I booked for 2 more days upon my return from NICE. I met nice friends at the hotel as well. An american, named Mary, who had stayed there before and also a british family. I cant wait until my next summer vacation. I will definetly go back and will stay longer. I will recomment to friends. I already have actually! oh and I love the body wash and shampoo... Great scent! grazie mille!
Whats not to like???
The terrasse/ garden is really nice and the location is overall very good.
Really bad value for money. We were with a little child and were given probably the worst room in the hotel - there was heating in summer, noise from the church right outside the window, bad smell, no light... Bad service. At breakfast we, four people, were asked to either sit in the room with the breakfast buffet (no windows, next to the food) or split on two tables of two people although there were 3 free large tables in the main area. The explanation was that these tables were reserved for lunch (at 9.30am!!)! Same in the bar for drinks in the evening - had to go look for a waiter somewhere inside the restaurant 2-3 times in the same evening, there was just no one to take our order, bring the check etc.
The room we reserved, Victoria room, was large with vasca. Very nice classical style with damasrose wall paper, Victorian furniture, terecotta tile floor. View from French window was so nice.

Cost of parking
The hotel room was simple but gorgeous and decorated in muted tones. But, after viewing several hotels with rooms that decorated with grandma's old furniture, I was happy that the Royal Victoria updated their rooms to have a stylish modern feel. The pool is also clean and fitted with nice chairs and they have a beautiful garden with contemporary furniture too. A good breakfast with hot and cold options completed our stay!
The only thing that made our stay a little less than perfect was the a/c unit as it is extremely loud. Not sure what can be done unless remove but we kept our door open to avoid and weather was nice enough to do it too.
Most satisfactory, as before.
Just a suggestion: It would be nice to have an anti-slip mat in the shower.
Amazing views Beautiful hotel
Air Con not working so quite uncomfortable sleep
The staff were very friendly and the hotel was excellently placed, with great convenience to the train/ferry's to experience the various towns of Lake Como/day trip to Milan. Varenna was a perfect place to return to after the bustle of the other cities. Would recommend to any couple looking for a romantic getaway.
Having to leave!!
The rooms were large with excellent en suite - a superb powerful shower, and considering our room was just opposite the church with its bells tolling up to 60 times (???) for some strange reason, the shutters and windows were very soundproof. Very friendly staff
We were very lucky with the weather but if we had had rain there is nowhere for guests to sit and relax apart from the reception area or our room
