The hotel was wonderful and the staff were great. The hotel was too far away from e main shops and harbour in Varenna but a beautiful view from the rooms.

OK Room with a Great View

Considering the price, the breakfast was marginal and the bed was uncomfortable. The view however was incredible! The hotel is a 10 min walk ( uphill )from Varenna.

Fantastisk utsikt!

Du bor på detta ställe för utsikten, den är helt underbar. Tar bara 5 min att promenera in till Varenna, så läget är bra. Trevlig personal, helt okej frukost. Rena rum.

Cons: signs to the hotel
Nice views and within walking distance to everything in Varenna.If arriving by car,hotel is on the south end of Varenna,just past the parking garage.Look out for the signs they come up quickly.Cheaper to eat there than in town and staff was very helpful.

Stay in Varenna and stay at the Eremo Gaudio

Thrilling drive to hotel. It overlooks Varenna and is up a very steep paved road. We stayed in the lower hotel and had a terrace off our room which overlooked Lake Como. The patio for breakfast overlooked the Lake as well. The breakfast was very good. They also had drinks available throughout the day and evening. The room was very comfortable and actually had a few channels in English which we appreciated though we didn't come to Italy to watch TV. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We were able to take the funicular to the upper hotel and see the Lake from the upper terrace. The ride on the funicular was interesting, a little scary, and gave fantastic views. We were close to everything including the ferry and water taxis. It was a great stay.

Great room with an amazing view

Our stay was fantastic. Varenna is so beautiful it is probably difficult to have a bad stay anywhere. We arrived late in the evening and were able to check-in and get to our room just fine. The room and the bathroom were clean, yet basic though they had everything we could have wanted. We were on the lowest floor which was not supposed to have the best views, but our view was still incredible over the lake and of the mountains across the way. Breakfast was delicious, and had a good amount of choices for everyone. They had an enclosed or open balcony for breakfast with great views (or you could sit inside). This hotel is away from town and probably a 15 minute walk (with uphill). Or I think you can get a taxi. One thing I would ask about, however, is the funicular and the upper building. The person at the desk never mentioned this when we checked in and we did not find out we could go up there for a look until we checked out. We had to run and catch a train so we unfortunately missed it.

We had a room with a fabulous view of Lake Como! Room size was good, but the bathroom a bit tight. Linens crisp. Staff very friendly and helpful. Close walk to town. It was the first time I ever had to take two funiculars and an elevator to get to my room high on the hill, but oh so worth it!!! I would highly recommend this hotel, given you do not have mobility issues.

Great historical stay

Very cool hotel. Walk up the hill from town was not bad at all and the two elevators up the hillside jus added to the adventure. Front desk service was always helpful. The view is unbelievable. Would definitely stay again

Pros: tolle Aussicht
Zimmer in sehr schöner Lage, mit Balkon und Blick auf den See. Sehr netter Service. Abendessen und Frühstück: kleine Karte, kleine Auswahl, aber sehr gut
