Just a wonderful stay. Welcoming and friendly. The young man and his mother were great hosts. Very helpful. Ferry just a walk away. The Walk of Love very romantic and Varenna is a cozy village.

Excellent experience
Historical building with unique character and with modern amenities (WiFi, AC, elevator, soundproof windows), spacious, immaculate, comfortable beds, lovely views, close to the train station. Friendly and helpful staff. Very good restaurant. A lovely experience. I would love to come back and stay at this hotel again, and I strongly recommend it.

Wonderful family owned Hotel - fabulous location!
This family owned Hotel is located perfectly in front of the ferry service, making it convenient to train, shops and restaurants. The service is wonderful!!! Everyone was so helpful and welcoming, from the morning breakfast service with delicious cappuccino's and eggs to the reception service. While I found the bed too hard for my comfort (this is a personal preference), the location, friendly staff / family and service more than makes up for it. I can't wait to return.

Fun stay in Varenna!
Perfect location - close to the train station and across from the ferry. Gracious hosts and terrific breakfast. The view of Lake Como from our room was amazing! A short stroll along the water to get to the restaurants and shops in town. The only negative was that the a/c could be a bit colder (or install ceiling fans in the rooms.) our family had a fantastic time there!

Fair 4.0
Bring your own bedding
This place is in an excellent location (as long as you can stand the sound of loud ferry noises—it’s practically on top of the ferry station). The hotel is family run, and apart from feeling a bit like I was scolded by my mom a few time during the stay (curfew, not closing my shutters, etc.), it was was fine...with the exception of the son. He loves to say he is the owner, but if you press him on policy or service standards, he says, “I didn’t do it, it’s not my fault.” He’s like a petulant, spoiled child. Bed and bedding are comical. The single pillow is paper thin, the sheets are incredibly starchy, and the “comforter” seems like it’s been around for decades. The mattress will remind you of summer camp. Parking is €20/day. WiFi is TERRIBLE. Water views are amazing. Breakfast staff was delightful.

Very good 8.0
The breakfast offering is quite limited.
The hotel is a short distance walking from train station and very close to the pier, so it is very convenient. However, it is a bit troublesome for travellers with large luggages to get up to the room.
