I got attracted to it while I was looking for hotel to stay in Como, a laseside village near Milan.this is a place where aristocrats from Europe and America come and stay. To see and to be seen I suppose. 400 years old hotel. Amazing location on the lake Como. Great food. Excellent tastefull decor. Floating pool. Amazing service. Go there with fashionable dresses. Everybody else will be wearing theirs. Villa D'Eeste...it is an experience.

Perfect location, perfect accommodation, perfect service and the rest is just what anyone should expect from the De Lux Hotel. Excellent staff attitude everywhere and to everybody, the nicest ever met guests of the hotel. Rooms facing the lake give you additional chance to savour the panorama of the Lake. The Villa is the stop-point for the celebrities of all kinds. A lot of events like wedding and birthday parties take place there.

Room Tip: Corner Top Junior Suite is very comfortable with a spacious "cloak-room". Refrain from boo...

Very beautiful, full service, food delicious, view gorgeous, rooms beautiful, unfortunately too many guests filled with themselves. Cannot fault the hotel with that. Played tennis, took the walk up to the fort, travelled around the lake, very relaxing.

What a great place to indulge. We selected to do lunch at this beautifully setting. The starters were inviting and very well presented and a sign of things to come. We chose the smoked Angas beef. Cooked to perfection and carved at the table accompanied with the freshest of vegetables and a sauce that truely complimented the beef. To follow I selected the "brownie". I was amazed that a dish that is so often carelessly put together was presented so well with a delightful balance in the richness of this dish.

We found the staff professional and attentive without being intrusive.

We all deserve to be spoilt from time to time. Villa d'Este is the place o indulge.

This is a truly remarkable hotel and the best in this region - Lake Como.
It is magnificent hotel located in a spectacular setting.
The service is the best you will ever see - and ranks as one of the best in the world
The concierge services are better than Four Seasons and Ritz Carlton. We had George as our lead concierge and he is the best in the business.
The restaurants have a wonderful ambience and service. The food is consistently outstanding. I recommend trying all of them - each is different and special.
We used the hotel for all our excursions and I recommend that is the best and most convenient way if you don't mind the price. Their arrangements were perfect including airport pickup to all our boating and dinning experiences.
The property offers almost everything that you would want for a relaxing and pampered vacation.
The pool, the gym (now air-conditioned) and the spa are all great.
The gardens and the short hikes/jogging around the hotel are all fun to do without losing your exercise routine during your vacation.
Having seen many great hotels in the world I am surprised that it has not made it to one of the best hotels lists in the world. It is by a wide margin.
We even got to watch fireworks on the lake one night - that is was an unexpected surprise - perked us up after an unexpected rain shower.
In summary this is one of the great hotels of the world with a remarkable history, location, food, extraordinary service and they will do everything to make you happy.

Room Tip: The lake view rooms of course!

One of the great hotels with service and quality reputation that is well deserved. There must be an army of people behind the scenes that makes everything appear seamless and perfect. For example you never smell food cooking or see laundry or food deliveries. You're never disturbed in your room by service workers. Bed linen is real linen and changed every day. Yes, wildly expensive for some things (€120 blow dry, boat hire 5 times the price of the village) but otherwise you get what you pay for. Beautiful.

We ended our 2 weeks of vacationing in Italy by spending 3 days vacationing with the Italians in the true lap of luxury. What a spectacular contrast this hotel provided for us road weary travelers. The service is amazing.
The setting is just stunning, and we could hardly pull ourselves away from the pool set IN the lake.
The hotel arranged a boat tour to Bellagio that was delightful. Don't miss it. The drinks and dominos at sunset were enhanced by the gentleman playing piano in a tuxedo outside. Just
delightful in every way.
The only comment I have is regarding the actual food. It's expensive which is to be expected. However, for the price some of the lunch items were not that good.
