A simple, clean room with a good modern bathroom. The room is small but entirely adequate for a night or two. Fantastic view of the lake from the window and from the roof terrace. A friendly welcome from the owner. Varenna is lovely, but packed with tourists in September so

What a lovely surprise... a door in the wall, then in and up to our beautiful room with a stunning view on Lake Como. Stefano our host is charming and he made us feel very welcome. Fio and Gio is as central as you can get, on the main square. Two beautiful churches, cafe’s,

Last minute decision to visit the middle section of Lake Como. The reviews sounded good. Booked a room and exchanged messages with the management about arrival time. Arrived early and had to wait about an hour for someone to let us in. They showed us to a dingy looking room and

Frank, we accept any kind of reviews, positive or negative ones, it's enough they are honest. Your review is not honest! We exchanged messages about arrival time because, as we said, we could be there when you arrived, you indicated 17.30 and arrived TWO HOURS in advance, did not tell us you were there and now you complain that we arrived ONLY ON HOUR IN ADVANCE, about the indicated time?! You did not like the room you booked, even if on the website you used you find different pictures (taken in the apartment, so exactly what you found when you arrived; if you find it dingy, you could know it when you booked!) and where you can read "Rooms (...) Each shares a bathroom equipped with free toiletries.", but you say you discovered only when you arrived that you had to share the bathroom... should we comment your words? Last thing, we almost found you sneaking away about one hour after your arrival, probably if we did not meet you on the stairs we didn't even have the chance to know you were leaving, but in any case we did what possible to avoid you the penalty you have to pay for leaving the hotel; it's the only thing now we are sorry about, we complain with ourselves that we preferred not to addebit you with total price. Please, next time try to be honest and say what really happens, don't leave a feedback for a place where you did not even stay!
