I can understand that it is a 3 stars hotel, so you should not really expect much. But the truth to be told, 200 euro per night for this?! Had to stay at the premises of this hotel luckily for one night only because no other hotels were available. The weather was rather cold and the blankets were not provided....

We Stayed 3 days. Room was simple but OK. Location superb. Price was reasonable. Close to town high on a hill with spectacular views of Lake Como. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast met our modest expectations. About the same as prior 3 places we stayed on this trip. No complaints. WIFI was generally stable w a few interruptions. Biggest...

Do NOT walk from the train station with your luggage take a taxi. We decided to pay 10 euro extra and upgrade our room to move to the tower. It was well worth it! The only problem with staying here is it is a bit of a hike from the hotel to town. The rooms were clean and the staff...

This hotel provides some of the best views of lake Como in Varenna. The rooms are basic yet clean. The location is perfect and the staff are friendly. Food is only served in the evenings and if you have a problem with walking up steep hills to get to the hotel, then this one is not for you. All round,...

We booked this hotel for our first trip to Lake Como. It was absolutely fantastic with its view and service. We had a room with a large terrace which was nice and cosy. Little on the smaller side but the terrace made up for it. Breakfast on the terrace was lovely. Good selection. The castle Vezio is 25 min hike...

We stayed here for 4 nights and got a room on the 5th floor overlooking the terrace. The room was very basic but offered a stunning view over the lake. It was awesome to wake up every morning to the gorgeous view of Lake Como with fresh cool air! Breakfast was decent with standard fares. The 10 minute walk back...

We stayed here for five nights. The rooms are average but clean and neat. Sadly (and inexplicably, given its still the summer) the air con goes off in the night which meant getting up and opening doors, shutters etc. Also, a big negative is the breakfast - I didn't bother after the first day as it was sugary and artificial...

This place was the highlight of our 25 year anniversary. The reason it was special was the views from our private balcony. The location and views are perfect. There is a funicular that you can use your key to go up and down to the outside top of the mountain. We could have explored the hotel alone for a few...

The top rooms are quite good but those on the lower floors are terrible. Cramped and badly in need of updating. Breakfast is average at best. Staff are indifferent. Views are excellent but spoilt by the poor ambience. Avoid
