We have stayed at Varenna several times before but never at the Hotel Du Lac. Tucked away down a narrow alley it is a gem of a hotel. Helpful staff, great service and clean and spacious rooms with superb lake views. We visited in early April and it wasn't busy so they upgraded us free of charge to a lake...

We stayed here for 4 nights and it was perfect for us. We booked a room with a balcony overlooking the lake - and it was a good choice. Waking up each morning to the view across the lake was a great way to start the day. The room was exceptionally quiet and comfortable. The breakfast room (breakfast was included)...

Charming smaller hotel, just off the beaten path, comfortable rooms and an unbelievable view. Very nice helpful staff. Would stay there again anytime. Very good breakfast. Great place to have a glass of wine on their large patio. Wish we had stayed longer than two nights.

We had tried to reserve at the Royal Victoria which a friend had just returned from staying at , but they were booked. Hotel Du Lac was our second choice, but if I were to return (which I hope to) I would stay at Hotel Du Lac again!! We were greeted by the friendly professional front desk staff when we...

This hotel is situated in a perfect spot on Lake Como. From its terrace where they serve breakfast in the morning and drinks in the evening, it is hard to find a better view. If you are lucky and get the right room your view will be similarly outstanding. We unfortunately were not so lucky. We stayed in an annex...

We stumbled across this hotel completely by chance when looking for somewhere to lunch - and what a find. The secluded terrace is the perfect place to dine al fresco with only one waiter, a few scattered tables and the lake for company. The kitchen keeps things simple, fresh and light, just what you want in the land of wine...

Varenna is a delightful small village on Lake Como and has many advantages First,It is one a train line and this is a positive if one is prepared not to hire a car.Second,Varenna is quiet and the Hotel du Lac hangs over the LakeFinally it is a pleasant stroll from the hotel to the ferry terminal.

Stayed here two nights in mid-October. The hotel is something of an architectural hodgepodge with one "wing" at different heights and with a different staircase than the other. Certainly qualifies as a "Quirky" hotel (one of the questions asked in the reviews) but great staff, lovely view over the lake, and am ambience which is to die for. The hotel...

Varenna is a small town with an amazing location. Hotel du Lac is right on Lake Como and we were fortunate to have a large terrace right on the water. The front desk reception was extremely welcoming and helpful. Our room was wonderful as was the breakfast. I would highly recommend Hotel du lac and hope to return one day.

This is the second time I have been to Varenna and I believe I have found the best place to stay. We had a room with a balcony and to hear the water lapping at night whilst going to sleep was so restful. The location is perfect and the balcony overlooking the lake where you can have a beautiful breakfast,...

“If you arrive by train, take a taxi to the hotel...so much easier than navigating the steps and cobblestones, as you find your way.”

“We asked for a lake view, but did not get a full lake view. I think you need to be in the main part of the hotel for the best view.”
