    Superb

    Family run and "Mom" spoke perfect English and helped you with whatever you needed. She arranged train tickets for customers and gave excellent suggestions of things to do. Everyone was warm and friendly and "Dad" was an outstanding chef. Breakfast was the very generous, low cost and high quality .

    The bathroom was very tiny and had a bidet which was unnecessary and placed so that you had to climb over it to use the stool. I am short and using the stool required putting my feet into the shower. Removing the bidet would remedy that!

    Marina and the entire Castelli family were warm and gracious. The chef prepares delicious meals! We enjoyed the family atmosphere and the warm hospitality making our stay in Varenna very enjoyable! Enjoy the "Rick"Steves" fixed-price meal!

    Family owned and run hotel. Very helpful personnel and good value for money. Hotel was very well located, about 10 minutes walk from railway station and about 5 minutes walk from ferry.

    Very good

    The staff was extremely helpful and the location was within walking distance of the ferry and train.

    The bathroom had quite a bit of mold in the shower and on the curtain. The room facing the street was noisy.

    Superb

    The owners / staff were wonderful people - very helpful and kind. Marina's English is very good. The hotel facilities were good but dated, about what you would expect for this type of hotel. Everything was clean, there was lots of hot water, the wifi worked well, the bed was good, and the hotel restaurant had great food. The location was convenient to the waterfront, restaurants, and the ferry dock.

    Steps - there's no lift in the hotel. Noise - it's on the main street and there is noise. This is a small town so it's not like constant traffic, just the occasional truck or motorbike (starting at 6:00).

    Superb

    A small hotel where the owners are always there. The owners and the rest of the staff are very friendly and efficient. Not luxury but very clean perfectly adequate accommodations. Highly recommended.

    1) No service for keeping luggage in the hotel because the reception is close between 14:00 and 17:00!!! "Family management" is not a reason not to have this kind of service, otherwise they should precise this condition on the booking website. After checking out at 11:00, we had to catch a train back to Milan at 16:35. We could leave our luggage at the hotel until only 14:00 because there was no staff at the hotel from 14:00 to 17:00! So we had to come back to pick up our luggage around 13:45 (instead of 16:00 as initially planned)...and our weekend in Varenna was ended (we were travelling throughout Italy so our luggage was quite big...impossible to drag it with us for visitting Varenna and other cities...) 2) There is a discotheque not far from the hotel which made noise until 2:30 am. That was annoying.

    Nothing - exept location

    I really did not like the staff. Lucia in the reception should find herself another job. She should learn to give service and make guests feel welcome. I did not se her smile at all. I will never ever recomend this hotel to anyone!

    Exceptional

    The owners were very accomodating and pleasant. A great value for the money. Would stay here again.

    That some of the hotel guests were rude by standing in the hallways late at night talking. That isn't the fault of the hotel but rather the people who were staying there.

    Superb

    Service was friendly and prompt. Varenna is small but I found everyone to be very friendly and the (included) breakfast and the dinner were both very nice.

    The bed was very small (bunk-bed size) and it blocked the ability of the chifferobe doors to completely open. The safe was inside the chifferobe so it was hard to see in (luckily, I travel with a flashlight). I thought it was fine for two nights stay, in a town that is full of travellers/tourists, at this time of year.

    Good

    Location was good, very close to both Lake Como and the train station. Room was ok -previous reviews said it was functional and basic and I think we'd agree with that. Our toilet was leaking when we first arrived and that was sorted pretty quickly which was great.

    Staff quite abrupt and not particularly helpful: as if the B&B was an afterthought. Breakfast not great -bread pretty stale on our last day.

    Good food and very close to lake shoreline with the ferry dock nearby and other shopping areas nearby.

    There is no good view of the lake.

    Good

    Nice location, but there are lots of hotels in Varenna that do not show up on bookings.com nor on other sites I have tried

    Quite expensive and check-out is at 10:30 :(
