After a week on business in Switzerland I travelled down to Varenna. A fantastic experience. This hotel is perfectly located right on the lake with breathtaking views. The food in the gourmet restaurant is superb as is the service. I will definitely be back again!

We stayed for a long weekend over Easter. The hotel felt very quiet even though they were almost fully booked. Varenna itself was the busiest i've seen it. We didn't manage to get a lake view room, instead we had a view over the village square which we enjoyed just as much. The room looked recentley refurbished and was spotless,...

I spent one night at the Royal Victoria and my only regret was I couldn't stay longer. Beautiful hotel in an amazing location with an extremely friendly staff. The rooms were comfortable, simple with modern finishes. And the rain shower in the bathroom was wonderful. Spend a little more and get the lake view. It's worth every penny. Breakfast was...

As others have noted, it is worth paying more for a guaranteed lake view. We had a junior suite, and the vista is simply amazing. This fact alone overrides everything else, and we enjoyed our stay. We also found the hotel very quiet. Short walk to everywhere, including the ferry, but perhaps not practical to roll luggage to/from the train...

Dear guest, We thank you for your review. All suggestions are good for us always better to improve. Concerning smoking, all commom areas are strictly no smoking. It's very hard to prevent people smoking on the balconies. In all rooms there's the fire alarm and we also ask our smokers guests to be respectful of non-smokers, but we could not...

We stayed three nights and the service was very good and friendly. We had a room overlooking the lake which was very good. The service was very good. It was a short walk to the lake front and the cafes there were very good. We had dinner in the hotel and it was also good. We would go back.

This is a fantastic hotel! The service was incredible! We had a double room with lake view and a balcony which was absolutely beautiful. The view was amazing (definitely worth paying a little extra!)! Also the breakfast was good and location great. The Grill restaurant was the only one open during our stay but it was very nice also. There's...

Positives: 1. Superb room view overseeing the lake. 2. Good location: close to several good restaurants and cafes, and short walk to lake taxi jetty. 3. Most helpful front office and restaurant staff. 4. A good and fresh breakfast spread, cheer me up to start my day! Negative: 1. Comfort level of bed/pillow can be improved.

From arrival, the staff made us feel very welcome. Our room was very good....Make sure you ask for a room with a view of lake Como. Ours also had a balcony large enough to seat 4-5 people comfortably (some have balconies which do not have much space for sitting). The bathroom could have been a bit bigger but otherwise did...

We arrived with another couple for a weekend in Varenna. We were shown to adjoining rooms with fabulous balconies overlooking the lake...so no problem about one couple getting the better room! The rooms are not large, but very comfortable and well laid out. The furnishings are pleasant and it was spotlessly clean. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, supplying...

This is my second stay at Royal Victoria. I believe it's the best hotel in Varenna all round. The location is in the most charming corner of Varenna, close to a pretty bay where the Caffe Varenna and Il Molo Bar is. All the good eateries are within a 5-10 min walk. We were able to park our rental car...
