Absolutely stunning location on the banks of Lake Como in gorgeous, tiny Varenna. Our room had an incredible view of this magical lake and surroundings.

Varenna Sweet Home, hotel in Varenna

Super close to the train station. Literally next to the exit with just 1 min walk. It’s also a close walking distance to the pier to hop on the boat to other islands. The place is very nice, cozy and modern. Well cleaned. Sofa bed is very comfortable and big unlike other places. There’s snack (biscuits, macaron), tea and water to welcome us. There’s a microwave in the kitchen with all the kitchenware. Bathroom is well equipped with amenities. Water pressure is strong. The owner is also super nice and helpful. He stood in front of the place to make sure we find the place. When we msg him to ask something at night, he offered to come by to help and we’re very glad.

It was a perfect stay with free toiletries, hairdryer etc. and great breakfast! (honestly rare to see free breakfast provided so definitely a plus point)

Varenna Boulevard, hotel in Varenna

Varenna Boulevard is located in Varenna. Free WiFi is included throughout the property.

Location is superb - just a minute or two from the Varenna waterfront or the main square. I had 80 and 75 year old parents with me and they were able to enjoy the town without too much trouble (whereas many other accomodations are too far up the hill or too many steps). On more than one occasion when the weather turned I was able to quickly run up the steps from a waterside cafe to fetch my parents a cap or some sunscreen from the apartment and I'd be back sat down in a few minutes. Host has a wine shop next door and welcomed my family of 5 (one of us stayed elsewhere) with a lovely glass of white wine each. Very nice way to start our trip. Also provided us with a discount on some wine purchases which we enjoyed drinking during some movie nights in the apartment (they had Netflix and Amazon Prime!). Clean apartment and a nice view from one of the windows (can see the lake), while the others face down on the cobblestoned alleyway where you can watch the world go by. Good instructions beforehand on locating and accessing the property - I communicated with the host on WhatsApp a few days ahead of my arrival. In the end I was able to access the apartment using the keysafe without any trouble, but after dropping my stuff off I ended up meeting the host at his wineshop next door not too long after.

    Varenna is beautiful and we enjoyed it, but no taxis available you have to stay right in town otherwise have to walk steep hills back to your villa. Restaurants require reservations. Highly recommend Villa Monesterio for walking and outdoor cafe. Everything was very crowded on Saturday and the ferry from Villa Carlotta was over loaded with people if there had been any accident most people could not get out it was too over crowded.

    Ideal location for visiting other towns on the lake, Bellagio, Menaggio & Tremenzenno all a short distance away. Ferries are frequent & very punctual. One hour train ride into Milan, not that frequent so check the times.

    Don't miss Villa Monastero! Lovely gardens walking along the lakeside and tours inside were only offered on weekends. Check hours before going. A few restaurants within walking distance of the ferry. Bar Moto has spectacular views from the water.

    The views from Varenna are better than the more southerly locations. There are lovely walks and it’s easy to get to nearby towns. There are many eating places but not much opportunity to shop if self catering.

    We knew we were going off season (the hotel has only opened the week we visited in the 2nd week of March) Varenna is a pretty village with breathtakingly beautiful views. But off season there was nowhere open to get a drink or food after 9pm!

    Easy walk about town.

    Easy walk about town. Wear good walking shoes steps are steep and not always a handrail. Beautiful gardens and scenery. Easy hop on a ferry to go to the other towns. Hike up to the castle is 30 min. I would have felt more comfortable with a walking stick. Make sure to have water.

    Outstanding location in Varenna. Easy walkability to various places around town. Lake Como view from balcony where we had our wine nightcaps. This property is associated with the In Vinis Veritas wine bar just around the corner. We were delayed getting to town because of train issues. As we walked by, the wine bar owner called out my name (must have recognized me from passport) and had us stop for a splash of sparkling wine before walking us to the apartment. We felt so welcome, like being greeted by friends. Casa Giada is a special place.

    Ottilio responded immediately to our concerns. He asked his friend Lorenza to meet us at the parking lot and walked us down a minute to this complete & beautiful apartment. Lorenza gave us a thorough introduction to the apartment and Varenna. It has clothes washer, dishwasher, microwave, stove. Location is 1 minute from train station and parking, 5 minutes to lake and boats. Easy travel by boat to Bellagio and Menaggio. Home away from home! Proseco a welcome touch! Thank you Ottilio and Lorenza for a beautiful stay in Varenna!

    Hotel Olivedo is a gem. Right on the lake it is easy to walk to restaurants and shops. Watching the sunset was a plus, just outside our window. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast, which was included, was plentiful and delicious. The bed was extremely comfortable. The building is old, but all of the decor adds to the charm. We were very comfortable there. The restaurant was good and well situated right outside the ferry. Thank you we had a wonderful stay.

    This is the perfect location to stay in Varenna if travelling by train, it’s just a few minutes walk down hill from the train station. Giulia the host was very helpful, I was unwell during my stay and she fetched me pain killers. The rooms are cosy, wonderful comfy bed and spacious bathroom and great shower. The views from the balcony in the common area are gorgeous and where breakfast is served from - a wonderful stay and location for exploring Lake Como!

    The hotel and staff are fantastic. Partial Lake view balcony is nice and the view from the restaurant terrace is beautiful and the food good. If I go to Varenna again I will stay here. The office staff is extremely helpful and friendly...they heard rumor of a train strike the morning of our departure and not only advised us but helped create a travel plan to get us to Milan and on to Venice that solved or problem perfectly. I can't thank them enough.

    A beautiful apartment with a stunning panoramic view of the lake, we had several hotel stays on our trip & this was definitely our highlight. We were greeted punctually by the owner who showed us in & gave advice on restaurants, boat trips, taxis etc. A large comfortable apartment in the perfect place to explore Varenna. 2 min stroll down steps to cafes, restaurants & the view!

    We fall in love with this cute house near to Lake Como. It's a charming place with green door, huge bed and large terrace, where you can eat your breakfast with beautiful view. Also, we recommend the whole Varenna city, which is one of the prettiest towns on the lake. Contact with the host was very good, it turned out to be helpful. Grazie!

    Hotel Olivedo is in a great location; directly opposite the ferry terminal, and 10 minutes walk from the railway station. It is on the water and within walking distance to the main part of Varenna with restaurants and shops. They offer a good breakfast in their café which overlooks the water.

    Breakfast was enough to get you started for the day. The views were amazing which added to the whole experience of Lake Como and Varenna. The location was away from the main crowds but still had a lot of atmosphere with the buildings and facilities around. The lake view suite was ideal.
