    This hotel has it all! Great location, amazing staff. The breakfast was so delicious. Best hotel we stayed at while in Italy! I would highly recommend it to anyone!

    Very good 8.0
    Great location and a lovely old hotel. We booked at very late notice so probably and understandably got one of the least attractive rooms immediately above the main entry doors, which was a bit noisy and not private if blinds were open, but otherwise my wife and I had a lovely stay

    Very nice hotel, with caring staff and a great view, kids loved the pool and the lake... very nice breakfast buffet, and the restaurant had delicious food also for dinner.

    If you drive there, beware of parking garage...
    Great location, property, and service. Split system AC in rooms; not so much in restaurant or common areas. If you drive there and rent parking space, BEWARE! The spaces are in a (relatively) nearby underground garage. The spaces are walled cubicles and if you have a normal (US sized) car, it is nearly impossible to park it. We severely damaged the right side of our car trying to get in even though one of us was watching for clearance at the time.

    Lovely hotel in a quiet location
    We had a very enjoyable stay at the Hotel Royal Victoria. Our room was very clean and comfortable and the staff were highly accommodating. Our lake view room had an amazing vista to look at every morning and evening - I could have just sat there all day! We only had breakfast one day, but it’s a very nice spread of food to start your day out. Varenna is a great location for a visit to the lake, with a lot of great restaurants nearby and easy access to the boats that transport you around the lake. If you’re walking from the boat, you will at some point have to deal with some stairs, so take note, though the hotel can arrange a shuttle. Also, there was a wedding at the hotel every night of our stay so you may not have access to the bar or restaurant if that’s the case during your stay. Overall, I rate this hotel very highly if you want a nice hotel in a spot that’s not overcrowded with tourists yet convenient.

    Highly recommend
    Charming hotel right in the main square of the village of Varenna. Try to get a room overlooking Lake Como - the view is amazing. Great modern bathroom with rainfall shower with amazing water pressure. But might be a tight fit for larger people. Mattress and pillows a bit on the hard side - my only complaint. Staff is friendly and helpful.
