An amazing hotel. The staff were helpful and very accommodating in every way. Breakfasts were gourmet and the grounds to walk around in were picturesque. The scenery can not be more storybook. Everything was perfect. Enjoy your experience.

A taste of "Heaven"- for a special treat this is the closest to perfection that I have ever experienced. The hotel itself is comparable to staying in a noble's grand villa in the most idealic setting imaginable. The views of the lake are lovely which offer a respite from our uncertain world. It is difficult to leave the charm of...

The best hotel at Lake Como, actually at Cernobbio is by far the Villa d'Este Hotel...the gardens are magnificent and the view of the lake Como and sorrounds are awesome. The rooms are spacious and the service is excellent. There are three restaurants and bars where you can eat or have a cocktail. This hotel has a history to has...

I have wanted to stay here for years. We finally did for two nights in mid-Sept and were not disappointed. It really is stunning: the lobby, the restaurants, the gardens, the location, the staff, the prices! Everything is spotlessly clean, the old place is kept up lovingly. It is real understated elegance. We booked a room with a lake view...

We were torn between staying here and the Grand Hotel Tremezzo, so we split our time between the two hotels. The Villa d'Este is magnificent. We loved the Tremezzo, too, especially its proximity to everything and the wonderful food options nearby (oh, and also the spa/indoor pool), but the Villa d'Este remains unrivaled in terms of old world luxury and...

I was rather excited about our stay at Villa D’Este - a famous, glamorous hotel on Lake Como. On the map it looked like the perfect staging point on our long drive back to the UK from Tuscany which swung the decision. We’d requested a lake view on the booking notes, but one closer inspection, it seemed we’d booked a...

The place is awesome with a huge garden which goes well into the rocks where you can ascend old galleries used in medieval times to defend the place... the hotel is definitely a grand hotel with a excellent kitchen. You just have to know, that with the prices in the restaurant you pay for the ambiance. It's a very elegant...

The location of the Villa d'Este sits the northern shore of Lake Como is unimprovable. The hotel itself is very, very grand, though beginning to fray at the edges. I appreciate that the charm of such a place is its historical grandeur, but I don't think this should stretch to stains on carpets, chipped paintwork, and a vaguely musty smell...

Villa d'Este - old world elegance, trompe l'oeil finishes on columns, building facades, tongue-in-cheek sculptures, gorgeous grounds, With its reputation and prices, I was a bit concerned about possible pretentiousness, but instead found the staff to be friendly and extremely accommodating - genuinely wanting to make guests happy.
