We stayed two nights in a room in the lower section, right next to the terrace bar. The noise was not an issue and a plus for us was that we could sit on our terrace and use the free wifi. Our room was very spartan but clean and comfortable. The view was just magnificent. Be prepared for a steep...

We stayed for 3 nights in September at the lower level. Unfortunately we never took the lift up to the upper level, I wished we had, as many of the reviewers here raved about it so much. Our room was very nice, a good value for what we paid. I really liked our room. It had had decent AC, a...

My husband and I stayed for 5 nights at the eremo gaudio in august, 2011. I have to say that we thoroughly enjoyed it. Talk about "a room with a view", it was the most beautiful and breathtaking place i have ever been. The hotel room, ours was a superior with lake views, was really comfortable with air con, fridge...

We stayed in the Teodelinda Suite in the top section of the hotel. The suite was basic, but large, cool and comfortable. The balcony was also large and would have benefited with sun lounges. The view was to die for. Standing on the terrace, gazing at the water and mountains beyond, listening to the church bells..... Makes life worth living!!...

My partner wanted to visit Italy for a short birthday break at rather short notice and originally looked at a hotel in Como but after a bit of consideration we thought that a mid lake location might be better and chose Varenna. We looked at various hotels but with only a couple of weeks notice most hotels with lake views...

Eremo Gaudio is a nice place to stay. Is has a wonderful view over the como lake and the service is excellent. The road up to the hotel is very narrow and steep and it's almost impossible to park your car, but the owner of the hotel usually parks your car when you arrive. The breakfast is boring and since...

We stayed here for one night in June 2011. In a 3 month tour of Europe this hotel had the best views. It is quirky in that you have to go up 2 funiculars and a lift to get to the rooms which gives you the great views but might get a bit annoying if you stayed a long time....

I took my two kids to stay at Eremo Gaudio for one night on the spur of the moment during our trip to Italy, and it turned out to be one of the highlights of the entire six weeks! The kids were in awe of the funicular and the terrace and of course, the spectacular views. I wasn't sure how...

We stayed here in June in the upper level of the hotel. After taking two funiculars halfway up the mountain, we arrived at the remodeled monastery portion of the hotel. The deck that protrudes from the hotel makes you feel like you are standing above the lake. The rooms were spacious with our own balcony that overlooked the lake. Spectacular....

The hotel is very unique with great views. We stayed in the lower building and the view from our window was still quite impressive. We did have a strange experience finding it though. We must have passed by the road up to the hotel 3 or 4 times, as there was a construction crew and a giant piece of machinery...
