“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

We re-visited Varese but because we'd left booking to the last minute we could only get a room for one night. This time we had room 4 which was simply beautiful. We stayed on Monday and hadn't realised the restaurant was closed but were greeted by the delightful lady who helps run the hotel and who is so kind and attentive. Breakfast was perfect with great attention to detail and before leaving we were given a bag containing gifts of pasta. This hotel is quite spectacular with its views and the service it gives. Well worth a visit - you'll be sad to leave!

The location of the hotel is fabulous with amazing views over Varese and part of the lake. The hotel is situated about 25 minutes out of Varese up winding narrow roads. Don't let this put you off it is worth the journey. The hotel is comfortable and has an excellent restaurant. The staff are very friendly and there is parking at the hotel. I would recommend this hotel and would definitely stay again, but do not feel this is a 4 star hotel, more 3 star.

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Colonne while we supported the Great Britain rowing team at the Under 23 World Championships in Varese. We had been let down by another hotel, which we'd booked months ago and who then cancelled our booking less than two weeks before we arrived. We are really grateful to them - without this we wouldn't have discovered the Colonne.

From the moment we arrived we were welcomed as friends in this small, delightful hotel perched high above the bustling town of Varese and the nearby lake.The rooms are simply but stylishly furnished and with a view to die for. The service is quiet, courteous and friendly and the food is exceptional.We dined at the Colonne 4 nights out of 5 and enjoyed every meal and every glass from their long and varied list of Italian regional wines.

News must be getting out because many other families of rowers were there too. Everyone enjoyed the calm oasis above the heat and noise of the town. The village too is an amazing historical treasure with hidden paths, ancient houses and other unexpected delights. For anyone who enjoys peace, tranquility, good food and good company, this is the place for you.

We will definitely return to the Hotel Colonne.

Room Tip: All rooms have a view down to Lago Varese. The rooms on the upper floor have the best view.

We stayed one night at Colonne. The staff is very friendly and the food was excellent. The room was spacy and comfortable, the bathroom is modern and clean. Lovely view to the valley. The road up to the hotel is narrow.

Hotel Colonne has not only a breathtaking view, outstanding food, but before and foremost an exceptional service attitude towards clients. Silvio and his staff do their utmost to solve any problem when necessary. They do not only what is expected as part of a good service but also the unexpected as, for example, giving you a nice send off gift upon leave.

Room Tip: We stayed in room # 4.

This hotel had the wow factor from start to finish - view, location, service, food. Highly recommend for those who want to experience Italy away from the hustle and bustle. After arriving from Perth Australia to say we were tired was an understatement. We quickly forgot as we navigated from the airport through the town and up the windy roads of Varese. Service was unbeatable, rooms were clean and comfortable with an enchanting decor. Highly recommend.
