We stayed on lake como and were very happy to have chosen Varenna as our base. It is a smaller, quieter and more picturesque village than those other on the lakes. We visited Bellagio and found it very touristy. The ferry for all the villages leaves from here. Albergo del sole is very nice, situated over a restaurant in the...

Here only for two nights, but everything wonderful. Just a short taxi ride from the train station; located on a piazza across from a historic church whose lovely sounding bells will wake you each morning. Easy access to sites and the waterfront to the ferry service. Our room on the top floor was large, comfortable, a nice sitting area, large...

Great little hotel with Pizza restaurant. Room was very clean and quiet. Located right in the central upper square its position is ideal for exploring all the magical streets and ally ways of Varenna i would say it is probably the best value for money place in the town. Always busy in the summer!

My adult daughter and I stayed here and loved it. Rooms were small but clean. Quiet and very well located along the piazza in magical Varenna. Ask for a room off the Piazza as they are quieter. Francesco the owner is ever present, kind, and helpful. The hotel is very well located despite not having a view. Close to all...

We're a family of four-- kids ages 6 and 8-- and we loved Varenna and loved this hotel! Much more affordable than most that offer a lake-view, and we actually really liked being on Varenna's main square, the Piazza San Giorgio. The owner and staff were so, so nice and helpful... room was bright and clean, and we loved our...

A wonderful stay of 2-nights. The staff provided us with excellent service. The room was clean and modern. Breakfast was good with pastries, cheese, meat, juice & coffee. Varenna is a lovely lakeside village with access to passenger or auto ferry. This hotel/B&B is located in the main piazza. This is a great place to stay away from the tourist...

We stayed two nights in June in the "suite" The suite has two single beds pushed together to make one queen size bed and a pull out sofa that is fine for one or two smallish kids. The bathroom is clean and modern with a shower. The suite does have a view of the lake from the side. The church...

I stayed in a single room for the two nights 23 and 24/05/13. A simple but adequate room with good bathroom with shower, all extremely clean, as the rest of the hotel is, including the restaurant/pizzeria which is part of the business. The owners/staff are all polite, very friendly and helpful. The price is very good considering the proximity to...
