We arrived with another couple for a weekend in Varenna. We were shown to adjoining rooms with fabulous balconies overlooking the lake...so no problem about one couple getting the better room! The rooms are not large, but very comfortable and well laid out. The furnishings are pleasant and it was spotlessly clean. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, supplying...

This is my second stay at Royal Victoria. I believe it's the best hotel in Varenna all round. The location is in the most charming corner of Varenna, close to a pretty bay where the Caffe Varenna and Il Molo Bar is. All the good eateries are within a 5-10 min walk. We were able to park our rental car...

Because we were in Lake Como during the off-season (mid-February!), almost everything was closed, but we did manage to book a lake view room with a large balcony. It was wonderful, and sitting on the balcony overlooking Lake Como was so relaxing. Room was large, bed was comfy, and the hotel staff were incredibly friendly and very helpful. The breakfast...

We had a great stay at the Royal Victoria. The service was friendly, thoughtful and helpful. Although our room is smaller than I imagined, it was probably not small for Europe and it was very clean and nice. The bathroom was modern and also very clean and nice. We had a window overlooking Lake Como which I highly recommend. We...

From the first welcome to the warm adieu the staff were very very welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble - we arrived having burst a tyre nearby - the staff made sure that we had the best service from the hire company and did much of this outside their shift time.The location is superb, everything is very clean. We ate...

We got the train from Milan centre railway to varenna. The hotel was a ten /15min walk. It was late at night and we were very excited! We checked in and had a lake view room. To die for breath taking. I'll never be able to describe the beauty. Everyone was so helpful and kind and amazing. Gorgeous break from...

The Royal Victoria is ideally located in the main square of the beautiful village of Varenna, facing the lake. It is a charming quite old hotel with large rooms. The downside of it is some equipemets are dated such as the mattress. But the view if you are lucky enough to have booked a room with a view is breathtaking....

I came across the Royal Victoria Hotel by chance when visiting Varenna. I really enjoyed the cup of cappuccino in the garden restaurant but was kind of disappointed about the small swimming pool in front of the hotel and more disappointed by the price of the hotel rooms.

Dear guest, We didn't understand if you only visited our bar or if you stayed here for the night. Our pool is not an olympic pool, but a pool to relax and short swimm. Length 10m, depth 1,40m, wide 4m it would be better to know why you think our rates are too high, just better to understand.

We stayed at Hotel Royal Victoria for 3 nights and it was lovely. The staff are so accommodating, friendly and helpful. The staff go above and beyond - even opening breakfast early for us on a day we had to leave early to catch a train, and allowing us to check out a bit later. The view from the balcony...

We had our annual summer holiday here in September 2016. From the moment we arrived I knew this hotel was going to be one of the best that we have ever stayed in.
