My wife and I enjoyed a cozy and comfortable room with a view of Lake Como in early April. The staff was very friendly and gave us a great advice during our two-night stay. We were disappointed that their restaurant wasn't open for the season (we missed it by a week), but they recommended two excellent alternatives that we loved....

Hotel du Lac kept coming up as the best or one of the best places to stay in Varenna, and it offered rooms with a view of Lake Como. What wonderful views they were. And what a lovely hotel. From the beginning of our experience with the hotel, from trading e-mails with Valeria, whom we did get to meet, to...

We have stayed at Varenna several times before but never at the Hotel Du Lac. Tucked away down a narrow alley it is a gem of a hotel. Helpful staff, great service and clean and spacious rooms with superb lake views. We visited in early April and it wasn't busy so they upgraded us free of charge to a lake...

We stayed here for 4 nights and it was perfect for us. We booked a room with a balcony overlooking the lake - and it was a good choice. Waking up each morning to the view across the lake was a great way to start the day. The room was exceptionally quiet and comfortable. The breakfast room (breakfast was included)...

Charming smaller hotel, just off the beaten path, comfortable rooms and an unbelievable view. Very nice helpful staff. Would stay there again anytime. Very good breakfast. Great place to have a glass of wine on their large patio. Wish we had stayed longer than two nights.

We had tried to reserve at the Royal Victoria which a friend had just returned from staying at , but they were booked. Hotel Du Lac was our second choice, but if I were to return (which I hope to) I would stay at Hotel Du Lac again!! We were greeted by the friendly professional front desk staff when we...

This hotel is situated in a perfect spot on Lake Como. From its terrace where they serve breakfast in the morning and drinks in the evening, it is hard to find a better view. If you are lucky and get the right room your view will be similarly outstanding. We unfortunately were not so lucky. We stayed in an annex...

We stumbled across this hotel completely by chance when looking for somewhere to lunch - and what a find. The secluded terrace is the perfect place to dine al fresco with only one waiter, a few scattered tables and the lake for company. The kitchen keeps things simple, fresh and light, just what you want in the land of wine...

“Ask for room with a view. Most have them... but not all. Higher is better. We were on 5th floor.”
