We enjoyed our stay at Villa d'Este very much. However, the maitre d' at the Verranda Restaurant needs to polish his attitude towards new guests. He selected our lunch table in the back after he scanned our well dressed party from top to bottom. Then followed a service which was not up to the reputation and prices of this so... More

Everything about this unique Grande Dame hotel is perfect. We were blessed yet again with wonderful weather. Service, room, staff and food were all up to the usual standard of perfection that Villa d'Este aspires to, and succeeds in achieving. My 11th visit

Even though George Clooney has a home on Lake Como, Villa de Este would be an upgrade for him. Unbelievable views are afforded from the picturesque grounds that provide the ability to hike trails or get lost in the serene gardens. The rooms offer spacious modernized bathrooms, ample bedrooms that open up to 5 star scenery from the balcony. This... More

I was here last year and it was again perfect! The room, the view, the garden, the food and the services are of a very high standard. Even if it rains you will have a perfect stay although if it is very cloudy you will miss the mountain view and the view over the lake

An amazing hotel. The staff were helpful and very accommodating in every way. Breakfasts were gourmet and the grounds to walk around in were picturesque. The scenery can not be more storybook. Everything was perfect. Enjoy your experience.

A taste of "Heaven"- for a special treat this is the closest to perfection that I have ever experienced. The hotel itself is comparable to staying in a noble's grand villa in the most idealic setting imaginable. The views of the lake are lovely which offer a respite from our uncertain world. It is difficult to leave the charm of... More
