The property is in an excellent location with lots of character. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Our only criticism is that we specifically booked the annex rooms six months in advance but on arrival we were told these we unavailable. We were given 'superior' rooms but we were disappointed as they were not what we had booked. Our concerns were met with you have better rooms but this was not the case.

Luigi the manager was wonderful and really made us feel welcome and went out of his way to help us . The location of the hotel on the lake and the restaurant and cafe options and the wharf out the front to go to bellagio or other towns was wonderful. This was magical .

Convenient and Comfortable
Very comfortable little hotel with wonderful view from the balcony. Right opposite the ferry terminal so extremely convenient for exploring the lake. The windows have been upgraded with modern, double glazed windows that are really functional so when closed they block out any noise from the terminal while being very easy to open up to enjoy the view. It is a short work to the main part of the village of Varenna along a lovely path around the lake. Good WiFi Very good value for a 3-star hotel. Recommended.

Convenient location.
The hotel is located at the ferry terminal and near cafes and is a short walk from the railway station. Staff were very helpful and the room clean and a reasonable size. The lift goes to the 3rd floor so we had to use stairs to the 4th. The stairs were easily climbed. Being v in the roof space ceiling shapes were interesting with the biggest impact in the bathroom. No head room for the shower so sit in bath so you can get your head under the shower rose. More water pressure would have been handy. The breakfast was excellent, sitting outside looking over Lake Como. Our only gripe, the WiFi just didn't work. Supposedly someone was to fix it but in the two nights we were there it didn't happen.

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!
