Despite the cost we found our stay here quite marvellous. Total comfort with a magnificent room overlooking the lake. A good choice of restaurants. Gentle animation.Good cocktails. Great swimming with choice of indoor,floating or in the lake! We'll be back - bank manager permitting!

Arrived there about 9 days ago, a trip to Como with friends, and as soon as we arrived i felt i was leaving a dream... All because of the extraordinary scenery, the peace, the green beauty around, the awsome paladium architecture od the villa d'este, and the blue reflections of como lake touching the greenery... We all stayed speachless.... This...

This was one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed in. The bar/lounge at night was great for watching and meeting people from all over the world. October is a great time to go to Lake Como - less crowded, cooler weather, better service.

We enjoyed our stay at Villa d'Este very much. However, the maitre d' at the Verranda Restaurant needs to polish his attitude towards new guests. He selected our lunch table in the back after he scanned our well dressed party from top to bottom. Then followed a service which was not up to the reputation and prices of this so...

Everything about this unique Grande Dame hotel is perfect. We were blessed yet again with wonderful weather. Service, room, staff and food were all up to the usual standard of perfection that Villa d'Este aspires to, and succeeds in achieving. My 11th visit

Even though George Clooney has a home on Lake Como, Villa de Este would be an upgrade for him. Unbelievable views are afforded from the picturesque grounds that provide the ability to hike trails or get lost in the serene gardens. The rooms offer spacious modernized bathrooms, ample bedrooms that open up to 5 star scenery from the balcony. This...

I was here last year and it was again perfect! The room, the view, the garden, the food and the services are of a very high standard. Even if it rains you will have a perfect stay although if it is very cloudy you will miss the mountain view and the view over the lake

Spent 6 days for 10 year anniversary trip + brought along 4-year old son (spent another 3 nights at the newly opened Le Sereno hotel on the other side of the lake). We've vacationed internationally 3-4 times/year for nearly 15 years and stayed in luxury hotels on virtually every continent. They've all had their pros/cons but I can sum up...
