We decided to wind down our vacation in Italy with a stay in Varenna on Lake Como. After researching hotels in Varenna we chose the Hotel du Lac and are so glad we did. First, Varenna is an absolutely charming town set on the beautiful Lake Como surrounded by the Italian Alps. Then add the beautiful and comfortable setting of...

We had too small single rooms, which I nick-named the 'tiny tim' rooms but they were nice with a good-size modern tiled bathroom and the beds were twins. My only complaint on the rooms was I made it very clear when making my reservations that they had a small refrigerator...the did not!! I was told they did! The front desk...

as others have noted - the hotel is in an amazing spot - right on Lake Como. Our room was fairly small, but very clean, and in very good condition. It had a private terrace (vine-covered) with a view of the lake. The hotel staff was excellent. Vera was there most of the time and could not have been nicer....

Hotel du Lac was in the most beautiful spot in Varenna. It was convenient to the best sights and restaurants. Its breakfast veranda had a gorgeous view of the lake. Our room was very clean, quiet, and comfortable.

As other reviewer's have mentioned, be sure you get the correct hotel, the one in Varenna. Our room was of average size but centered on the lake with a balcony and two small chairs. I would highly recommend getting a room with a Lakeview. The housekeeping was immaculate and the staff incredibly helpful at every turn. The cost, under €200,...

First, there are four Hotel du Lacs on the lake. Be sure to go to the right one... I thought I reserved the one in Bellagio, only to discover at check in and a tight drive down the tourist filled street that we were a car ferry ride to the other shore. While the one in Bellagio may be great,...

Lovely hotel with an enchanting terrace right in the lake. We had a converted boathouse as a room located just outside the hotel down some steps leading to the lake .... Really quaint . Friendly staff And very close to promenade walk and other restaurants . Loved it and had a chilled out holiday

I would not hesitate to recommend Hotel du Lac. It is located right on the lake, with great views from the lovely wide terrace where breakfast and evening drinks are served. They also serve lunch every day. Our room was spacious, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Our bathroom wasn't large, but was adequate and had plenty of space for toiletries....

This hotel has a magnificent location facing south out of Varenna. Most hotels face straight out across the lake towards Menaggio. Which, is not a bad view! But the Hotel du Lac in Varenna faces straight down the lake looking down both the arm of Lake Como towards Como and the arm towards Lecco, with the peninsula that has Bellagio...

My wife and I stayed 8 nights mid August in this gorgeous Hotel. We booked one of their larger rooms (# 12) with a great Terrace overlooking Lake Como. The hotel serves Breakfast and Lunch, as well as Evening Cocktails. The Breakfast was fine (I would call it pedestrian - your typical "Continental Breakfast" featuring assorted Pastries, Cornetti, cheese, meats...

“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.”
