It has a good location and must have been a lovely hotel in its day. The hotel is old and dated.It was expensive and yet the carpets need to be replaced,the hairdrier was brocken,bed linen was a bit shabby.
The location was great and the view from our room could not have been better.
Staying in a room with a balcony overlooking Lake Como. The hotel staff was reticent to recommend restaurants aside from their own.
Varenna is a beautiful place and hotel location is perfect This is the most overpriced hotel we ever stayed in. Poor service, hotel facilities and our room, very limited breakfast were not worth the money we payed.
Beautiful view of lake and mountains. The hotel felt old but very luxurious. The room and bathroom were huge and very comfortable. Parking was scarce.
Breakfast was good, yet served in a room away from the spectacular lake view which was a bit puzzling since that view is what they promote on their website as a selling feature. Bed was very hard and pillows thin and hard - I was glad we were only booked for 1 night on it. Given the star rating of the hotel, the bathroom toiletries & paper supplies were very cheap compared to other similarly rated hotels we stayed in this same trip.
The location and the view of the hotel was fascinating. The city of Varenna is a really nice place. The stuff of the hotel were very nice and friendly (especially the receptionist). The room was poor and old furnished, equiped (e.g. old TV set), however it was clean and the common areas of the hotel was beautiful. Because of the quality of the room we think the hotel does not reach the 4 stars.
Location,fantastic view from the room,friendly and clean Room was gloomy,bathroom was small and shower was tiny.breakfast fruits were not ripe.
A great position, get a lake facing view
The view from our room and location It is old and needs major updates, parking is difficult
amazing meals served in a wonderful dinning room quite out of the way if you do not have a car
The staff, facilities and view were all excellent. The location is by a busy road, so expect traffic noise all day & night.
very friendly staff it was a bit basic but ofr 1 night it served its purpose well
great family cooking , superb atmosphere, great location, we'll go back
The staff, the food and the location.
free parking and clean rooms There is nothing in the immediate environment other than a view of the lake from across the street. Our room faced a trailer park which was right next to our balcony and windows. There is nowhere to go to by foot so you don't get that holiday feeling.
friendly staff thought our room had a view of lake como
The most beautiful location near the Lake Como.
The staff member who spoke English was very helpful. Nice room and excellent dining room/food. Directly across street from the lake. Most sight-seeing available after taking buses from hotel.
Friendly family run hotel, food was great Kind of remote......as far as things to do in the evening
The staff was absolutely wonderful. Helped with planning our days and activities. Breakfast buffet was good, room clean and comfortable.Great value for the money. Location within 30 min walk of everything in town, good restaurant across the street, nice lakeside walk just a few hundred feet away. No complaints at all.
The Hotel was very clean and tidy with great facilities - Swimming Pool and Gym. It was also close to the water taxi dock and a number of great restaurants.If you get a chance you must visit 'Ristorante da Mario' the food is great and the service very entertaining! It's a shame that the hotel didn't serve an evening meal as the walk to the restaurants along a road without footpaths was a bit tricky. There was a bar on site but the lights were always off and it wasn't very inviting
Lovely view, poolside terrace was very nice and comfortable right on the water's edge. Great breakfast. Staff was helpful. Valsolda is a lovely and colorful town, and the promenade is enjoyable with the amazing views. There is a hike to the town from the hotel. Directions to hotel were not easy to follow. It would help if they explained that you should get off at the 2nd bus stop. Due to the location of the hotel access to other towns is limited by boat because of less frequent stops in Valsolda.
The room was perfect for the price. Great view. Very clean. Slept like a baby. The breakfast was typical Eurpean coffee and croissants...but very good. Be prepared to not find much dining in the area. The entire lake has a very laid back attitude about work days/hours.
Good value for money. Building is properly renovated, gorgeous lake views. We failed to find good place for dining around.
It was a simple hotel with basic ammenities. The tv was too small for quite a big room. We had 2 twin beds offered and it was difficult to sleep for a couple which had already requested a double bed. Breakfast was fine and service was great. The terrace is nice but the lounge chairs are not so comfortable. They should do more for the terrace. On the website, the hotel also offered free internet service on specific locations like the lobby area. However, this is not entire free. It's only free for 20 mins and the rest is chargable then. This is a misleading information and I don't think it's fair for those that are planning on working on their laptop over the weekend.
Very good location and relaxing atmosphere. Very small bathroom, actually too small
We've stayed in the Hotel Regina for 3 night. There was a room with see view. The location and view from the room is very beautiful. The staff was were helpful. The was an small problem with wi fi connection in the room. The view
The view of the lake from our room and the cleaniness of our room. No.
The room we had had just recently been re-furbished so everything was still brand new. Also - the continental breakfast was really good. Our room had a beautiful balcony, with a beautiful view across the bay to the village - except we could not take pictures or fully appreciate the balcony because the view was marred by an enormous crane right next to us, due to renovations happening on the property next to the hotel.
The person at the check-in was very friendly, knowledgable and helpful. The breakfast buffet in the morning was incredibly good. Free Wifi did not work in the hotel room, but worked in the reception area.
A nice simple clean hotel, modern large rooms, helpful staff. Well positioned for a five minute walk to Gravedona centre (there's no restaurant at the hotel, at least in the low season, but a couple of good places on the waterfront). Like many hotels around the lake it is right on the lakeside road, which is busy pretty much all night. Gravedona has a very different feel to the resorts on the southern end of the lake - less plush, more relaxed.
We liked everything about the place! It was like a resort in many ways, but smaller, offering the marvellous personal touch of the managers. The hotel was truly classy. Clean, ...gorgeous, in its furnishings, spacious,...truly tasteful and beautiful. While there were many wonderful things about the Hotel La Villa, the couple who manage it are first class, genuine professionals of hospitality. they made every thing come to life for a lovely holiday time. No.
Supernice breakfast buffet, very friendly family-owned hotel, quiet part of the Como lake, very nice and spacious room with lake-side view (no street noise problem), nice pool
The hotel had about 8 rooms total. Very charming and on the water. Each room has an excellent view. You need to reserve parking. Loved the charm and would definitely stay here again. Walking distance to everything. Excellent restaurant. No loved this hotel.
Fantastic views of Lago Como and an amazing garden terrace. This hotel really is a great spot and I imagine a great wedding venue too. The room I was in could use a few updates - especially the bed, which wasn't a double as much as it was 2 singles pushed together. It felt like 2 lumpy, single mattresses from an old futon. But other than that, great.
Lovely hotel and friendly staff. Breakfast was great and we eat out on the terrace. Unfortunately the dogs barking non-stop nearby spoiled the peace and tranquility, and it became very irritating after a while. Otherwise a great small hotel.
Absolutely a great hotel to stay at Lake Como. The hotel shows authenticity and prepares great food, mainly from their own grounds or local suppliers. The staff were all really helpfull. I would recommend it to everyone.
The Spa & the ease of hirng bikes You definitely need a car to get around
The room was beautifully clean, the food was wonderful and the staff were warm and friendly.
very very good small hotel!!
nature around, nice yard and pool, quiet resturant at hotel does not worth its prices.
Perfect location close to Lake Como. The owner Luigi and his family were lovely, so friendly and helpful. Food was great, all homemade and organic. The pool was nice and clean. The surroundings were beautiful. Our kids loved picking fresh boisenberries and raspberries out in the garden. Would definatelly stay here again!
Wonderfully calm atmosphere with view to the mountains (though not to the Lago di Como). Perfect facilities and cleanliness, very gentle and friendly staff. The food at the restaurant is excellent.
Good to excellent food. Beds were so - so. One runs a hotel and doesn't miss charging anything. Said wireless didn't work well at all. First when stepping out of the room I got connected to the wireless. So far all well, but their connection to the Internet got to be a mere joke. Too slow for any communication. It was not that much "slow life / food" as was perhaps claimed in their advertisement.
Friendly staff, quiet pool area, spa facilities. Within easy reach of Menaggio, Belaggio etc by car & within walking distance to Lake Como & lovely town Gravadona. Excellent for mountain walks. The small road leading into the hotel not very attractive.
