    Great views and amazing service

    We absolutely loved our stay here! The view was great and it was convenient to be so close to the harbor, but also near the train station. We also enjoyed the personal attention we received at each point of our visit. This hotel is one to return to!

    It is rare that an hotel can feel like your own home, but this wonderful hotel manages that supremely difficult feat. The delightful people who run the hotel are, each and all, warm, welcoming and incredibly efficient. Nothing was too difficult for them and their recommendations were superb. We had the most marvellous time on Lake Como but the main reason for that was the central comforting care of Hotel Olivedo. I have no complaints - the room was spacious and comfortable and offered wonderful Lake views; the in-house restaurant was quite exceptional, the food and wine exemplary. We celebrated a friend’s 50th there and the staff made it truly memorable. This is simply an absolute jewel - and I cannot wait to return.

    Loved staying at this hotel!

    Absolutely loved our stay here with the friendliest staff! It was very convenient with the boat docks just outside which gave us access to a lot of the other towns around Lake Como. Travel to the hotel was easy from Milan which was part of the reason we stayed in Varenna. Don't expect something super modern as they maintain a vintage vibe with nice views of the Lake from your bedroom (Superior room) and the service was sensational. Thank you very much Luigi and team!

    Happy Staff make Happy Guests!

    Hotel Olivedo was amazing! The rich historical building feels so much like "fancy Europe" when entering. The bed and shower were updated and comfortable without compromising the integrity of the classic beauty of the building. It is in front of the ferry stop, but it was NOT chaotic; it was actually nice to see people coming and going. We ate at the restaurant two nights. Both nights were absolutely fabulous! I loved the pumpkin gnocchi (not what I had expected and SO GOOD!). I have to say the staff makes this hotel top notch! I feel like we got to know the staff on a personal, friendly, and very inviting level. They were all so pleasant it just made our stay perfect. Absolutely would recommend!

    Warm Welcome and Great Breakfast

    The Staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome even though we were practically the only ones there. This is a great family run hotel right next to the main ferry so side trips are super easy. The staff even made us a to go breakfast because we had an early train the next day. A great hotel!

    Varenna comfort hotel

    Very comfortable hotel family owned and operated. Close to train station and water taxi. Very hospitable owners. Let us leave our luggage while we spent the night in St Moritz after the Bernina Express visit. Loved Varenna, Mennagio and Bellagio!
