With 10 simple rooms that let in lots of light, this small hotel right on the lake in Varenna is great for families who want a break from larger properties. Be aware that you’re close to the ferry terminal here, so there can be some related noise from that. But you can walk to everything in town and breakfast is included in the room rates.

After driving from Milan Malpensa we settled in our hotel and walked to the waterfront having dinner at Olivedo. The food was excellent and the waiter was very helpful and friendly. He explained the local cuisine, the fish in Lake Como and was sincerely interested in our background.
Thank you again to Enzo, the server in the café of Hotel Olivedo. Im not big into coffee but Enzo recommended this one and it did not dissapoint. His cappuccino is the beat Ive tasted in Italy! Thank you again!
