Hotel Du Lac has a special location on Lake Como with incredible views. Our room was large and decorated tastefully. The only complaint about the room was that the pillows were hard and made it difficult to sleep But we could see the lake from our bed so who wanted to sleep anyway! The staff all wore facemasks and the hotel was pristine and we felt safe about covid. The staff were over the top helpful and friendly. A shout out to Martin (who must never sleep), Tatiana and Susanna. They were there to help us with whatever we needed. We had originally booked with them for June 2020 but then covid hit and we had to postpone. They were easy to work with to cancel and then rebook and then rebook again. Nothing was too much trouble. We finally got to have the trip of our dreams and Hotel Du Lac made us feel pampered and cared about. We had a car so we used their car park which was nice. Driving across the piazza was not a problem but going under the little tunnel was a bit tight. A small car would be best.

After spending 7 nights in different places on Lake Como (Bellagio, Lenno and Varenna) we liked Varenna the best. This hotel is located perfectly, right on the lake and an easy walk to the key things in Varenna. Staff/service were excellent and the food/drinks were also top notch. Would definitely stay here again and highly recommend. Overall rate it 4.5 only because the rooms are a bit 'dated' and could be better for the price.

We had a fantastic time at this little Italian hotel right on the lakefront of Lake Como. The staff are so helpful and friendly - you can tell they are serving from the bottom of their hearts and going out of their ways to help you solve a problem. We were really blown away by their hospitality. Thank you to the front-desk (especially Tatiana, sorry if I got her name wrong) and the waiters in the restaurants. We had a lakeview room which was beautiful. Room has powerful air-conditioning keeping it cool, very clean and has everything you'd expect at a 4-star hotel. Breakfast on the terrace was probably the highlight of our day - the lake is so peaceful and calm in the morning. Varenna is a beautiful village, not too big and not too small. Highly recommend!

Stayed in 3 rooms as part of a wedding party. Unfortunately none of the rooms we were allocated had the better views (as per other reviews on here), but they were still lovely, clean, modern and spacious. However, the staff were excellent. From the reception staff who assisted with information about travel on the Ferries, to the breakfast staff who could not do enough to help us to the restaurant and terrace staff who served us and the wedding party guests, with nibbles, food and drink over a couple of days. To be met and served with a smile from the beginning of our stay to the finish was delightful. Would happily recommend to others and would stay there again when travelling to the region again.
