My husband and I spent three nights here in October. We had the suite which was very comfortable and had a lovely view of the lake. The hotel is in a wonderful location for exploring Varenna and convenient to walk to the ferry. Enzo, Francesco and staff are very friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. The food was so...

We were hungry It was late. We stumbled on this place in a small piazza of a small hotel. We walked into the small hotel lobby which opened into a large eating area. They were very busy but the proprietor made room for us. The place was filled with locals. We had the most delicious pasta with fresh porcini 🍄... More

(((see photo))) A wonderful small hotel in a near perfect location in a beautiful village overlooking Lake Como. How much better can it get! Three nights at Albergo del Sole were not enough.

We found Varenna to be an excellent location to base our visit to Lake Como. The hotel is a small establishment on a square with a lift. We arrived by train and did not need a car. While on a map, it looks like it is not far from the train station, I would not advise walking it. I did;... More

This hotel was up a little bit from the lake front area but I had a single room with a view of the lake itself. The staff was friendly and it came with a very nice breakfast in the morning. The bed was nice and the room met my needs. The walls are a little thin but I didn't notice... More

My family traveled to Varenna in mid June and we had a lovely stay. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the wireless service was good. We loved the breakfast.

Central location in Varenna, friendly and helpful staff, large breakfast, room was cleaned well everyday, reasonably priced. I stayed 3 nights and was very happy overall. My bed was quite small but it was comfortable.

In the very heart of the town on a nice piazza by the church. Close to everything. Charming old house. We had the suite, which was spacious with a nice lake view (but not big windows). Breakfast was bigger and better than expected. Lunch on the terrace was very nice, try the pizza with bresaola! We even had dinner there,... More

Pros: Good location right in the heart of the Varenna centre, wide variety of breakfast, resto serves delicious food at a reasonable price, reliable wifi, and excellent service. Will recommend and will definitely go back there again! Cons: A bit of a walk from the ferry station but if you go by the lake route, the view is stunning!

One of the best hotel experiences e have ever had! My wife and I stayed for two days just before busy season. The owner/chef did everything possible to make our stay amazing. Quiet during the day and the restaurant was lively at night. We will be back!!!
