This was not my first stay at the Villa d'Este, and hopefully it will not be my last. On my first visit, the Villa d'Este was the finest hotel I had ever stayed at. On my last visit, it was still the finest hotel I have ever stayed at, and I have stayed at some very fine hotels all over...

Villa d'Este is truly a magical place, even the drive through the town is lovely. We only stayed for one night this time but enjoyed every single moment of it! We were lucky enough this time to have a lake view junior suite, the views were stunning, I could have sat looking out at the Lake all day! The room...

The costs are not for the faint of heart, it is the most expensive hotel on our trip, but boy do you get treated like a king for the money. The facility is well maintained and the grounds are constantly being primped. Views of the "ruins", gardens, and lake are spectacular. The food is fabulous, both beautifully arranged and delicious....

I spent weeks researching hotels around lake como. Since this was our first trip there, i wanted to choose something special. Boy am i glad i chose this one! The grounds of the hotel are STUNNING! It sits right on the lake, with a huge garden at the back of the hotel. Our kids had an amazing time playing there....

It had been a ghastly journey, with discomforts, delays and cancellations. So arriving at Villa d'Este, more dead than alive, was an intense experience. To begin with, mostly relief at actually being there. The door opened onto a corner room flooded with light, the super-traditional furnishings and huge bed seemed just a backdrop to the real action, which was the...

Went a few years back and can't get the entire experience out of my mind. It's top dollar but worth it. The gardens and outdoor eating areas and pool unreal. Caution this is an old hotel with antique furnishings so if you don't like old world charm it's not for you.

The magnificent grandiose exterior of the Villa d'Este sits perfectly at the foot of the mountains beside the magical lake Como. The marble interior seems to vibrate with excitement the classic drapes and grandiose marble stair case must have been the backdrop to many a glamouous society party and they positively be on you to have a martini in the...

We spent half of our one year anniversary and 30th birthday celebration at Villa d'Este. We had heard about the property for quite awhile, so had incredibly high expectations. We were not let down. The hotel and surrounding grounds are spectacular, and the service was impeccable. The rooms are beautifully appointed to match the historic decor of the grand hotel....

If there is a hotel you have to stay in whilst on Lake Como than this is it. It is loaded with history. The queen's pavilion was built for queen Victoria's visit, this gives you a sense of how important this hotel is. In summer, having a candlelight dinner with a chilled glass of white wine by the lake is...
