Booking.com Guest Review GuidelinesTo keep the rating score and review content relevant for your upcoming trip, we archive reviews older than 24 months.
Only a customer who has booked through Booking.com and stayed at the property in question can write a review. This allows us to verify that our reviews come from real guests like you. Who better to tell others about the free breakfast, friendly staff, or their comfortable room than someone who’s stayed at the property?
We want you to share your story, with both the good and the not-so-good. All we ask is that you follow a few simple guidelines.
We believe review contributions and property responses will highlight a wide range of opinions and experiences, which is critical in helping guests make informed decisions about where to stay.
Contributions to Booking.com are a reflection of the dedication of our guests and properties, so we treat them with the utmost respect.
Whether negative or positive, we'll post every comment in full and as quickly as possible, provided the guidelines are met. We'll also provide transparency over the status of submitted content.
We'll use the same guidelines and standards for all user-generated content, and for the property responses to that content.
We'll allow the contributions to speak for themselves, and we won’t be the judge of reality. Booking.com’s role is to be a feedback distributor for both guests and properties.
Guidelines and Standards for Reviews
These guidelines and standards aim to keep the content on Booking.com relevant and family-friendly, without limiting expression or strong opinions. They're also applicable regardless of the comment's tone.
Contributions should be travel related. The most helpful contributions are detailed and help others make better decisions. Please don’t include personal, political, ethical, or religious commentary. Promotional content will be removed and issues concerning Booking.com’s services should be routed to our Customer Service or Accommodation Service teams.
Contributions should be appropriate for a global audience. Please avoid using profanity or attempts to approximate profanity with creative spelling, in any language. Comments and media that include hate speech, discriminatory remarks, threats, sexually explicit remarks, violence, or the promotion of illegal activity are not permitted.
All content should be genuine and unique to the guest. Reviews are most valuable when they are original and unbiased. Your contribution should be yours. Booking.com property partners should not post on behalf of guests or offer incentives in exchange for reviews. Attempts to bring down the rating of a competitor by submitting a negative review will not be tolerated.
Respect the privacy of others. Booking.com will make an effort to obscure email addresses, telephone numbers, website addresses, social media accounts, and other similar details.
The opinions expressed in contributions are those of Booking.com customers and properties, and not of Booking.com. Booking.com does not accept responsibility or liability for any reviews or responses. Booking.com is a distributor (without any obligation to verify) and not a publisher of these comments and responses.

눉The location means that a taxi is needed to get there from the train. About 10 euro.
눇The hotel was a little out of the town and on a hill that provided quiet and spectalcular views.
August 28, 2016
눉That guests have to carry their luggage from the car park to the room via 67 steps and about 30 meters of walkway! Except for the limited check-in period, there is no staff on site.
눇The excellent view (but most places around Lake Como have a great view of the lake and surrounding scenery)
July 12, 2016
눉Be sure to arrive on the road down from gittana, not up from the lakefront, the road is a little steep and narrow and can be inconvenient when there's upcoming traffic.
눇Phenomenal sweeping views, very friendly staff, large rooms, quiet place, nice little self-service bar in the naturally cool grotto

눉Poor breakfast. The main road to the hotel was closed, yet no explanation was given. We had to find the other with a lot of difficulties.
눇Outstanding panoromic view. Clean, large rooms. Free, safe, private parking.

눉No fans or a/c and one has to keep shutters closed to keep bugs/mosquitoes out. A fan, even portable.. and a mosquito screen and a person could enjoy the great villa. We had to walk up to the restaurant which is incredibly great because we parked inside the gate and got locked in.no one there to let us out....
눇The view is amazing!!! the restaurant a few curves up from the villa is absolutely great.

눉No staff on the premises except for morning to set up for basic breakfast. Incredibly steep narrow road up the mountain to the premises.
눇The view was lovely of the lakes from high on the mountain. There was a beautiful little restaurant 10 minutes walk down the road.

눉It was a bit remote even with a car, so must drive everywhere, Varenna was about a 10 minute drive.
눇The views were amazing from the rooms. Angelina was very nice and accommodating. The room and bathroom were large and very clean.
