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
Excellent views from our balacony, great location in main square of Varenna. Lots of choice at breakdfast.
Bit noisy in the morning - we could hear noise from the kitchen in our room.
Village location, close to train, some not,all staff, georgous views.
Dining room and foyer was dated.
The location was great, the hotel appears to have been recently renovated and the majority of the staff were friendly and helpful.
At check-in we were greeted by an extremely nasty female member of the hotel staff. She insisted on my taking a second room for my daughter and said that it was not possible to have an additional adult stay in the room for a fee. Seeing that I was quite upset with the treatment, my daughter and her uncle who was also staying at the hotel, went down to the front desk with her laptop and showed the manager that the website clearly stated the option for a third adult to stay in the room for a fee. The manager responded by offering her a discount on the second room. I was very proud of my daughter taking the initiative to resolve the issue, however I have all intentions of disputing any charges that would be above and beyond the regular room charge with a third person.
Great hotel. Great location. Lovely room, which was immaculately clean and well-appointed. Attentive and friendly restaurant and house-keeping staff.
I don't think I've ever met such unfriendly reception staff. One of them actually rolled her eyes when we asked for help. It was enough to put me off ever going back despite the hotel's good points.
Location fantastic - views of lake superb and great to walk out onto the piazza. Staff very friendly and helpful
Poor internet quality and difficulty continually logging in. No kettle able to be provided for the room despite my requesting in advance- other italian hotels did this.
Lake view room with large bathroom with shower large enough for two and two sinks. Nice view of the lake at breakfast. Convenient location.
Queen bed was two twin beds pushed together so there was a gap in the middle.
We had a 1st floor lake view room with a juliett balcony(all the other lake view rooms were occupied and this was all they had left for upgrade). Clean room- great view- right at the main square close to everything. Front desk was ready to help with anything you need. Also good resteraunt at hotel grill- great gelato and pizza!
Breakfast could have supplied fresher fruit- it appeared that they kept refrigerating the fruit and putting it out for breakfast- bananas were brown- plums and grapes were tasteless. Eggs and bread was good.
Lovely hotel on the water in a picturesque village. Good staff. Nicely renovated rooms Reasonable breakfast
Very poor wi-fi - too slow when it was available and frequently dropped out. Would not provide iron and ironing board to guests. Lack of tea making facilities in rooms.
There HOTEL has a old world charm with modern amenities, very clean rooms amd comfortable bed. Magic position overlooking the lake, warm and friendly staff, great breakfast and the al-a-carte dining was excellent with good choices each evening, also had dinner in the grill restaurant and enjoyed the meal also. Verenna is a lovely place to stay on the Lake Como, easy to get to all the other places of interest on the lake by ferry. Highly recommend the hotel and its location.
We had to leave after a six day stay.
The Royal Victoria is in an ideal spot directly on the lake in Varenna, easily the most charming town in the region. The lake view rooms offer breathtaking views.
The staff at the desk was at times unfriendly and the room was adequate but sparse, and lacking in real comfort.
Lake view Clean modern room Breakfast buffet
Small room and no drawer space to put clothes
The room was lovley
location. Beautiful rooms. Amazing view. Lovely, lovely staff who could not be more helpful. Nice restaurant, great breakfast included and also a lovely place to eat in the evening.
It's pricey, but places on Como generally are - worth the money.
An excellent hotel in a great location with very good staff
The dining room is excellent but is seriously let down by the standard of the food. Who ever heard of an Italian cook who made very poor pasta!
Location and updated bathrooms. Decor and wonderful breakfast and dining room.
The wait staff for our evening dinner and breakfast the next morning we're terrific! The rain head shower, towels, amenities in the bath were of excellent quality. The view with the balcony, delightful! Great location right in the heart of Varenna, an easy walk from the train station.
We had some difficulty with the A/C, but once we reported the problem it was addressed and fixed immediately.
The reception staff were fiendly, helpful and welcoming. Location and room was wonderful and I would highly recommend this hotel.
The bar staffs service was slow and the attitude was un-friendly.
The peacefulness of the hotel
Wonderfully appointed and located Hotel in likely the best village on Lake Como (IMHO).
At such a small cost, wifi should be part of room rate in this day and age.
My new husband and I were here on our honeymoon, and it couldn't have been more ideal - a wonderful room overlooking Lake Como set on a tiny cobbled square. The staff were great, the decor tasteful, the food lovely and the setting sublime.
Not real orange juice at breakfast, but a small niggle in the scheme of things.
The view is breathtaking
Location; Dinner exceptionally good for a hotel; very nicely renovated
