Stayed here for four nights in April. Location is perfect The hotel reminds me of Cafe Renee in 'Allo 'Allo. The staff are very friendly and cheerful, the service is excellent we were on the top floor and there is no lift which is not a problem for us but others may find it too much.

This is a charming, family run hotel full of lovely antiques and right by the ferry port in Varenna. Our room had a dual aspect looking over the lake and north of the lake, and we couldn't get enough of the view. The location was excellent; a short walk down to the cafes and bars around the corner. Service was...

We watched a couple of travel YouTubes of Varenna and this place looked interesting so we booked for our trip to here. It was better than imagined. Comfy room, lovely decor and first class staff who attended our every need

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights as part of a 4 week holiday. It was recommended by friends who had stayed here the previous year. This is wonderful hotel, full of charm and character run by a local family - I believe that they are the 3rd generation owning and running the hotel. We had a room...

We had a room with lake view, it was great. Strongly recomend arriving from Bellagio by ferry. The approach to Varenna from the ferry at dusk when lights were reflecting on the lake, and church bells could be heard set an incredible ambience that carried through the stay.

Nice little Italian hotel right on the waterfront of Lake Como. Within walking distance of everything: restaurants, train station, shopping, post office. Access to the walking path is right out the front door.

You are paying for the view here, which is what we wanted so that worked for us. Very easy walk from the train, right next to the ferry and a short walk to restaurants. The room was clean and comfortable, can’t really ask for more than that.
