We were there just for a drink in the bar in the evening and I must see this is a "must see"! The place is really the most luxury you can imagine. The toilets are an experience in itself. The drinks were very expesive but worth while the experience.

This is a top Hôtel with top facilities. I didn't stay there but were invited for a wedding reception. Watching the sunset and the view was breathtaking. The food was just spot on with textures and flavours. The steak tartare melted in your mouth, the buffalo mozzarella was amazing, the pasta to die for. No fault in the food. If...

There are only a few things that have not been said about the Villa d'Este and its beauty. It is a remarkable place, one of the few spots on the world where perfection is driven to the utmost, and to the very detail. It is not just the landscape of lake Como that is enchanted, it is the way, the...

This hotel is not the musty old place I remembered. We had a spectacular room with a view.....hike through the gardens is delightful....tennis, beautiful pool bobbing on the lake....all wonderful...delicious breakfast....My only complaint is that the restaurant is very stuffy, requiring jacket and tie.....and the menu for outside and in is very much the same and very heavy. Other than...

The walk to the tennis courts and the view from courts is stunning. the entire property is Beautiful. You can walk town for dinner , which we did and the town is so quaint. The floating pool is awesome. We rented...

This is definitely a most beautiful place to stay for as long as your wallet permits. The staff is very professional and friendly and the building with the villa's gardens a real joy. Situated at walking distance near the picturesque Cernobio village, the resort gives you the opportunity to vary your enjoyment of this magical place. I should add though...

My husband and I took a day trip to Lake como from Milan. We had heard how beautiful that place is but I didn't realize it would be that magical , and Villa d'Este played a huge part in that! We took a private Vaporetto ( don't pay more than 45 euro) to Villa d'Este . It's breathtaking seeing coming...

The Villa has been on my wish list for well over 10 years - and it did not disappoint. The location is simply "exquisite". Its nestled in a small cove, with the property right on the water, overlooking Lake Como. The staff were professional, and extraordinarily attentive. Rooms were big, clean and I loved the pressed linen sheets. The highlight...

We had a really wonderful lunch at the Villa d'Este on Easter Monday. The hotel is everything you would expect based on its reputation. We were greeted at the gate and once it was established we had a room reservation we were welcomed in! The hotel is immaculate and the setting impressive. Lunch itself was as you would expect from...
