We have been here before and were glad when we found out our friends arranged their wedding at the villa d'este in June 2013 , we stayed in a suite overlooking the lake and the kids had individual beds. The wedding was unforgettable and the ceremony was carried out in front of the long steps, the wedding dinner was perfect...

Villa d'Este is a wonderful place to experience old-world Italy. Surrounded by history this gorgeous old hotel was very romantic for my husband and me to spend a weekend. We took a walk around the beautiful gardens and found many spots to take photos. The service is top-notch and the food is excellent. Personally I would have preferred to see...

Isn't it nice to arrive at a property where everything is juuuuust perfecto ?? - This is where "Villa Deluxe" ( Villa D"Este) in beautiful down town Lake Como fits in for sure. From the moment that you drive into this breathtaking property, it is evident that the magnificent gardens and grounds have been manicured for decades with all the...

We strolled the fabulous grounds and gardens, descreetly snooped around the classic buildings soaking in the history and grace. Oh... If those walls could talk! Then settled in for a long and decadent lunch. It's not 'just' an afternoon repast. Rather, it's theater dressed as a 5 star meal. Pricey? Quite. Worth the price of entry? Without question; it's an...

We loved our stay at Villa d'Este for our 2 year anniversary. I think "old world charm and elegance" is the best way to describe this beautiful hotel. The customer service was by far the best we experienced in Europe. We were personally shown to our room and were lucky enough to be upgraded to the junior suite on arrival...

My husband and I visited Villa D’Este in October for our honeymoon. It is a truly exquisite property and exceeded all expectations. What sets Villa D’Este apart from so many other world class hotels is the incredible attention to detail and exceptional service. From the minute you arrive, staff will personally greet you and will make sure that your every...

The hotel is situated on a beautiful lake. It has a free floating pool. The grounds are right out of a movie. You can take a boat ride around the lake and ssee the homes of the famous and affluent. The hotel is close to Switerland making a day trip to Lugano very easy.

This place is amazing. It's classic Italian style and opulence. The facility is an old classic hotel in a good way. Beautiful and spotless. The grounds are spectacular. The service is exactly what you'd expect… perfect. And the view… it's basically like visiting a post card. Everywhere you look is amazing. I didn't want for anything while staying there. The...

I have been coming to the hotel for a few years-every time there is a new discovery. Absolutely a top class luxury hotel in every sense of the word where you would not get disappointed ever. The hotel is grand, the view, ambiance are super. Food is expensive but you are affluent, right?! Service is professionally at its best-anywhere. But...

We booked the Villa Malakoff, which is on the grounds of the Villa d'Este resort, for ourselves and another couple. It was easily the most incredible place we have ever stayed. The resort itself is so beautiful, with grounds that look like something from the movies! Our check-in experience was very easy and welcoming. The villa sits at the top...
