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.
