My husband & I really enjoyed this hotel. Our room had a lovely balcony overlooking the gorgeous pool and the town Varenna across Lake Como. It was enjoyable to listen to the band playing in the evenings by the pool. Our room was very clean and had excellent bedding. The breakfast buffet was very good and had many choices. This hotel was in walking distance to Villa Carlotta, so great location. We took the boat to visit other towns on the lake. It rained but we were prepared with poncho's and umbrellas. Lake Como is beautiful in all weather conditions! We hope to return to this hotel in the future!

One of the nicest places we have stayed in Italy. Very close to the Swiss border and the town of Lugano. Facilities were excellent. Staff very helpful and friendly. The grounds were manicured. The spa and the indoor pool were excellent. Outdoor pools were "open" but not heated so too cold to try them. The breakfast was more than the common fare found at the usual European hotels. In fact, the breakfast and the dining rooms were one of the highlights. Room was really a villa with large living area, separate bedroom, dining area and kitchen complete with all the pots, pans, plates and utensils needed to cook a large Italian meal (including strainers, serving bowls, cork screws and different size wine glasses. The town of Porlezza has four grocery stores in or around the area so we cooked most of our meals. We did not try the Resort's restaurant. And there were also many smaller and unique restaurants to explore along the coast highway. Fitness area overlooks Lake Lugano, as did the balcony of our room. This Resort is highly recommended, even for a small family as there are many separate supervised activities for children. One heads up: It is not really close to Malpensa. It took 3 hours plus to get there along SS340, which can be a one lane road, behind buses at times. The road follows Lake Como, then makes a sharp left thru some tunnels towards Lake Lugano, where the Resort is located. We left for Malpensa on a Sunday very early in the morning and made it there within 2 hours

Superficially an ideally situated place but noisy. Hotel front desk over assertive and aggressive in contrast to charming and helpful room staff. A demand for payment upon entry was most surprising as the hotel held credit card particulars beforehand. The hotel senior staff might benefit from 'charm school'. It is a hotel that but for its noise problem has the potential to excel.

We arrived via Auto from Malapensa (Milan) airport. They had ample parking for us & were very pleasant upon our arrival. We found the room extraordinarily clean & ample room. The A/C worked fine & the bed was very comfortable.
The breakfast was included & most delicious with great variety.
The first evening we ate at the hotel & we have traveled around the world & could honestly rate the food a 4 1/2 out of 5.
The location of the hotel was excellent as the water transportation was less then 75 yards from the hotel. We used the water transportation for two days out of our 5 days & found it reasonable in price & we got to some great locations like Bellagio, Varena. Lenno, Villa De Este (Cernobbio).
We also were very pleased with the location, as we could walk to at least 6 good restaurants within 3 city blocks or less.

"A delightful, eccentric hotel in a beautiful spot"
The Olivedo is a small, somewhat eccentric, hotel right opposite the ferry station. The room had period furniture, all in excellent condition, and absolutely stunning views of Lake Como on two sides. We were well looked after by Laura and her staff for the three nights we were there and there was always someone to help. It is excellently situated, less than five minutes' walk from the station and with all of Varenna within easy walking distance. I loved it and will definitely try and return.
