“Beautiful!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2013

With a lake view, what a view to wake up to!! Walls are somewhat thin, but fortunately had noisy neighbors only one night. Breakfast was wonderful. Varenna is unbelievably beautiful, even seeming as if it was just built to look old and perfect. The hotel garden is a must see.

I was keen to find a restaurant away from the immediate hot spots in Varenna. We happen to come across the Hotel Villa Cipressi just off the main square up on the hill. The hotel is very elegant and has beautiful lakeside gardens the terrace of which provide the setting for lunch. They offer a limited but very nice lunchtime menu and very good accompanying wine list. After lunch you can take the opportunity to wander around the beautiful gardens. So well worth a visit.

Sorry, didn't stay at the hotel--it looked wonderful . We were staying in Lezzeno and only spent the day in Varenne but it was lovely. The cypress were old growth that towered above us. Gardens beautifully planted and maintained. Breath-taking views. Charming boathouse. Hotel out of our price- range.

Villa Cipressi was our first stop on a three-week journey to Italy and Switzerland. We arrived at night and awoke to a view of Lake Como and Bellagio....so gorgeous! Ate at the Villa on the 2nd evening and the food was outstanding. The little town of Varenna was so fun...you could ramble along old paths and find yourself at a convent or near another equally charming village. Would have liked to stay longer and hope to return.

Room Tip: There is one room with a balcony...see if you can get it!

We loved the hotel's setting on the lake and the beautiful little town of Varenna, it was so romantic for our 20th anniversary. We were upgraded to a room with wonderful lake view. The room itself was dated but clean. The hotels garden was nice and lovely to stroll around. The breakfast was not so good compared to the price paid. But the staff were very nice and kind. The only thing was in Varenna there were no parking and we paid 20 euros/day for parking space :(

Room Tip: Lake view rooms are a must!

We spend almost an entire weekend at Lake Como staying two nights at the magnificent Villa Cipressi in the lovely village of Varenna. Leaving 3 kids behind we exploited the unique opportunity that a Monday business meeting in Bergamo offered, to live a couple of magical nights and days in this superb location. Villa Cipressi is a fantastic value for money hotel with stunning views of Lake Como, a marvellous garden, a great restaurant with delicious Italian cuisine and amazing staff. We drove in from Milan and wanted to do everything at late hours and were very lucky to find Davide the courteous and efficient night receptionist who gave us perfect advice for all the things we needed. The rooms are a bit old fashioned, but comfortable. Anyway, no-one in his right mind spends a lot of time there, besides sleeping, with so many things to see and so much great food, churces, boat rides, etc. Its simply unmissable and highly recommended. We are coming back !!!

We stayed two nights at this lovely hotel in May of 2013. We had a great corner room with a view of the lake, which was very spacious. The property, including the gardens, are well kept and the staff was very knowledgeable and courteous. We enjoyed our stay very much and found Varenna a quaint and quiet town, well worth visiting.
