Hotel in posizione spettacolare sul lago

Posted 21-Jul-2015
Pros: La posizione e la vista
Cons: La colazione
Location: A due passi da Varenna. E' possibile fare gite sul lago, camminate in montagna, visitare le ville, ecc.
Purtroppo ho passato solo un week end. L'albergo è in una posizione meravigliosa e la vista è magnifica. E' un posto molto tranquillo e di charme.

Wonderful stay

Posted 13-Jul-2015
This place has one of the best views you can get anywhere in the area. Our room (in the upper section) was large, extremely clean, and really one of the most pleasant hotel/B&B experiences I had throughout Italy. The breakfast was great, and the staff OK but nothing above what I expect to be the standard. Definitely worth taking a cab to/from the train station with luggage. Air conditioning was a nice touch, but the breeze through the windows at night was refreshing and cool.

Pros: Great location, friendly staff.
Cons: Tea making facility in the room
Location: Fantastic couldn't be better.
We were supposed to stay for 2 days, however due to a family emergency we had to cancel the first night. The hotel staff were very understanding and wavered the charges for the first night. The staff were very helpful. The room was excellent overlooking the lake. We will certainly go back for a longer stay.

Fabulous view on Lake Como

Posted 30-Jun-2015
Hotel was a bit out of town on a road with an incline but no problem to get to and from. It was a very short walk into town. The hotel was quiet and the view was incredible. Our room had a balcony overlooking the lake and we had coffee in the morning/cocktail at night on our balcony. We would stay here again.

Varenna outstanding view and value

Posted 14-Jun-2015
Pros: the view and the funicular and terraces are great
Cons: Have lift in funicular go off when nobody is in it so that it will be cooler.
Location: Day trip to Bellagio, casual dining on waterfront.
This is our second time staying at the Eremo Gaudio, mostly because of the view of the lake and the Alps. The rooms are simple and clean and the breakfast is simple but adequate. We would stay there again and the stFf is very accommodating.

Quiet location with scenic view

Posted 09-Jun-2015
Pros: Quiet with scenic views. Excellent staff.
Cons: Restaurant food and funicular maintenance.
Location: Good eats in town. You have a shorter hike from the Hotel to Castello Di Vezio. There is the ruined castle to explore and a falconry show daily.
The Eremo Gaudio was a pleasant place. The location was quiet but with a price. A taxi is almost necessary for train travelers. It is a long way from the station, uphill on narrow roads with no pedestrian walkways. It's a shorter distance from the hotel to town, but also uphill coming back. The hotel restaurant serves unremarkable food and is closed Mondays. I was also concerned about the funiculars going up to the rooms. On more than one occasion they weren't working,ie the car didn't come or the door wouldn't open. There is a button to push per instructions, but it is inside the car. It doesn't help at all when you are outside the funicular! Is there an alternative to the funicular? I wasn't told of one. The above statements aside, I did enjoy my stay. The hotel staff was great. Housekeeping even made up my room while I was at breakfast. There is a great terrace for relaxing. All so peaceful.

So beautiful

Posted 08-Jun-2015
Beautiful hotel. I'd highly recommend it to anyone. No air conditioning in our room was the only con. Everything else was incredible!! Amazing views as well.

Fabulous view but not in town

Posted 02-Jun-2015
Great view but required two furniculars and an elevator to reach our room. The front desk person did not tell us about the second furnicular and elevator, and we thought we would have to climb the stairs the rest of the way - very disconcerting not to be given clear instructions.

Beautiful view

Posted 29-May-2015
Pros: The view was beautiful, the rooms were quiet and spacious. Everything was very clean and the bathroom was not dated.
Cons: The rooms could do with upgrading the televisions
Location: The location is lovely. Varenna is a quieter area of lake Como, perfect for relaxing and easy enough for day trips to other areas of the Lake.
The hotel staff were lovely and very accommodating. We were grateful to be shown to our room. The standard rooms are closer to reception and require no lifts but the superior rooms have spectacular views. Well worth the upgrade
