I stayed in the single room, which I haven't seen discussed much. It is small, but not tiny. I've included some photos. There's a small wardrobe and a table by the window. The bathroom is decent sized. Note about the A/C: the hotel uses a centralized system, so you can't just set your room to whatever temperature you'd like. It...

We stayed here in a superior room with a lake view. The staff was wonderful and the location is great. it's a short walk to the ferry and there are some great places near by (we found a cheap but wonderful take out pizza place just a couple of blocks away) and the views are amazing. The room though was...

After being spoilt at Hotel Spadari in Milan it is an impossible act to follow however the position, cleanliness and professionalism of the staff here is excellent......the few days In Varenna at the Hotel Du Lac with the weather overcast does not brighten the spirit.....but coming back to the view and wonderful room is calming..tranquil.

We had a wonderful experience at this property. First of all, Varenna is the perfect base for a Como trip. It's right off the train (10 euro cab right from the Varenna train station), and very convenient for mid-lake day trips. The staff at this hotel are lovely. Very sweet and accomodating. The views from the breakfast room are also...

We had a wonderful time at this charming hotel in a perfect location on Lake Como. The hotel and room were spotless, with an updated bathroom and great shower. We were in Room 25, which was a corner room with king bed with virtually a panoramic view (views on 2 sides) and a small balcony (big enough for 2 to...

We stayed here for 3 nights and this is an excellent hotel in an excellent location right on the lakde. Most of the rooms have private balconies on the lake. The included breakfast was very good. They have a fantastic bar where they provide free snacks. A great location to unwind after a day of touring around. The hotel is...

We first discovered this charming hotel on a boat trip from Cernobbio a couple of years ago. Coming across it by chance, we enjoyed a cold beer and a simple plate of pasta one lunchtime and vowed to return to enjoy the wonderful peace and quiet and view south down the lake. We stayed for ten days last summer and...

We spent 3 nights at Hotel du Lac starting on Sept 11. We loved the hotel and its location on the water, and we loved Varenna. We were so glad we stayed at Hotel du Lac over any other hotel in Varenna. The hotel staff service was excellent, our room was large ($245E, superior lake view room) with beautiful views,...

Our room was right on the water with a lovely deck. The breakfast was wonderful with a great assortment of cheeses and meats. The weather was very rainy when we were there, so it was nice to have a bar area to sit and another sitting room with a fire place ....that should have had the fire going? Close to...

Great spot. Clean, well run .You pay a good price but that seems the norm around the Italian Lakes. Very spacious rooms and a magnificent lakeside outlook, close to both passenger and car ferries(no problem for pedestrians to use these).Housekeeping exemplary. No restaurant in the hotel at night but very good choices in town. Waiting staff appeared a bit casual...
