Varenna Day 3
Don’t worry, we made it to dinner at Ristorante Il Camenetto and back! The owner, Rosella, who speaks almost no English, collected us promptly at 7.30pm and drove us up the winding road to the tiny village where their family restaurant is located. It’s a homey place, with an open fireplace, brick bar and …
Heading to Varenna
Last night, as we were leaving Il Pirata restaurant after dinner, we bumped into the American couple we'd had dinner with the night before. Jacqueline West is a costume designer (who has been nominated for an academy award – we googled her!), and her husband James, who is a script writer. We chatted again and …
Ciao family and friends,
We are here in lovely Varenna at the Albergo Milano. The air is crisp and cool, the trees are showing slight tinges of orange, fall is coming to the Lake Como area!
We left Monterosso this morning...the waves were crashing, the air was cool and breezy and skies were overcast. We have been here 5 times and never …
We left Avignon station at 8.45am and with three trains and one subway connection we finally arrived at Varenna at 9.00pm.We are more easterly now so nights are closing earlier.The trip was long but interesting, observing changing rainfall areas and district wealth.Some towns looked very poor and run down. We entered foothill country after leaving …
We woke this morning to overcast skies and a good chance of rain. No breakfast on the terrace this morning, everyone was in the cheerful breakfast area. Breakfast is included here, yahoo for unlimited cups of really good coffee. Yogurt, fruit, cereal, boiled eggs, as well as cheeses, salami and assorted breads were all available. Certainly not a …

Great little hotel! A lot of stairs but the view and service is exceptional. This is our third time here and we love every minute of it!

Historical Traveler Reviews Albergo Milano Hotel & Apartments Varenna
My sister and I had the very fortunate opportunity to stay at this hotel while in Varenna. Operated by a local couple, the hotel couldn't have been more perfect. We stayed in a room with a terrace and the extra money was well spent. Walking out every morning you could see the sun coming up over the mountains and shining on the lake.
This was the fourth (and last) place that we stayed on our honeymoon.
What a fantastic place!
The food - well it could not be faulted! Dinner overlooking the Lake, but with no passers by looking in - serenity at it's best!
Bettina and Egidio are the most wonderful hosts, and we cannot wait to see them again. They treat you like old friends.
We wish them every success!

La Dolce Vita
Our family of seven stayed 3 nights in July 2005. We loved this place. The owners are great. The food was especially good. The views of the lake just can't be described. We wished we could have stayed longer. Next time we will.
Charming place,friendly and helpful owners.Stayed 1 night in lake front room in May 2005,and very pleased with it.
My husband and I have just returned from a lovely stay at Hotel Milano. The setting is spectacular and we were charmed by the location after being a bit surprised by how hidden it is. The rooms are lovely and very nicely decorated after being newly refurbished.
The owner chief is wonderful, I practically licked my plate clean each night we had dinner there. He was very accomadating to our needs. The breakfast is hearty and all meals are served in the beautiful lake front setting.
We would happily recommend this hotel.
Is this albergo del duca? if so this is a great place to stay!
If this is the same hotel as Albergo del Duca in Como, Italy then it is a great place to stay.
It's an affordable hotel that has been recently renovated. The room and bathroom were very clean and the people working there were very courteous and helpful.
I highly recommend staying here if you are going to Como. If you do, you have to try the pizza downstairs!
My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at this small hotel the beginning of September. This was our first trip to Italy. I reserved one of the famous terrace rooms 6 months in advance. We were not disappointed. Our terrace wea as big as our room and overlooked the lake. We spent each night after diiner watching the gogeorgous sun set and all the lake activity wind down.
Charming but noisy
It's a delightful hotel and the rooms with a view are fantastic. However, the hotel is noisy inside, and there is a lot of clatter and banging in the morning. We woke up very early on both nights we were there.
Lake Como Hotel with no class
The view was fabulous, the town was incredible. The hotel was OK. But, the owners were very very rude, They hated Americans. I cant believe Rick Steves recommended this place. Lake Como was the most beautiful place we have been too in the world, too bad about the hatefulness and unhelpfulness of the Swiss owners.
