We had a wonderful time at this charming hotel in a perfect location on Lake Como. The hotel and room were spotless, with an updated bathroom and great shower. We were in Room 25, which was a corner room with king bed with virtually a panoramic view (views on 2 sides) and a small balcony (big enough for 2 to...

We stayed here for 3 nights and this is an excellent hotel in an excellent location right on the lakde. Most of the rooms have private balconies on the lake. The included breakfast was very good. They have a fantastic bar where they provide free snacks. A great location to unwind after a day of touring around. The hotel is...

We first discovered this charming hotel on a boat trip from Cernobbio a couple of years ago. Coming across it by chance, we enjoyed a cold beer and a simple plate of pasta one lunchtime and vowed to return to enjoy the wonderful peace and quiet and view south down the lake. We stayed for ten days last summer and...

We spent 3 nights at Hotel du Lac starting on Sept 11. We loved the hotel and its location on the water, and we loved Varenna. We were so glad we stayed at Hotel du Lac over any other hotel in Varenna. The hotel staff service was excellent, our room was large ($245E, superior lake view room) with beautiful views,...

Our room was right on the water with a lovely deck. The breakfast was wonderful with a great assortment of cheeses and meats. The weather was very rainy when we were there, so it was nice to have a bar area to sit and another sitting room with a fire place ....that should have had the fire going? Close to...

Great spot. Clean, well run .You pay a good price but that seems the norm around the Italian Lakes. Very spacious rooms and a magnificent lakeside outlook, close to both passenger and car ferries(no problem for pedestrians to use these).Housekeeping exemplary. No restaurant in the hotel at night but very good choices in town. Waiting staff appeared a bit casual...

This is a great hotel. It is clean and comfortable with beautiful views. Of course, that is not too uncommon on Lake Como but what makes this standout for me is the excellent Customer Service. Everyone at the hotel was so accommodating and welcoming. The front desk staff was particularly helpful especially Guido who worked to coordinate a drive into...

We didn't stay here, but I've been told I should still add my experience here as a review. I wanted to take the time to comment on the excellent service we received from their staff. On October 12th, we stopped by the hotel for a drink on their patio (wonderful view, great drinks and free snacks as a bonus). During...

Quaint, comfortable hotel perched on the shore of Lake Como. Rooms are well-priced, very comfortable, well-furnished and the breakfast is excellent. The room we had included a terrace that looked west on the beautiful lake; scenery is incomparable. Varenna is extremely quiet and we can confirm Rick Steve's account that there's little to do here except relax (the hotel is...

I am innately suspicious of reviews that offer nothing more than glassy eyed, hyperbolic praise as I always assume that they tend not to offer the keenest scrutiny. However, I cannot summon up anything other than this for HdL - we had an absolutely perfect stay in glorious weather. My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights and were...

“We asked for a lake view, but did not get a full lake view. I think you need to be in the main part of the hotel for the best view.”
