Quiet Elegancefrom blondeinabmw
Bettina and Edigo are wonderful hosts. An earlier poster commented perfectly that they are helpful without being "overly familiar". Staff is at your beck and call - but only when and if you want them.
The room itself was smallish - I wouldn't want to have giant suitcases - but it is quite sufficient. The bathroom is newly remodeled with sleek iridiscent glass tile and a very large shower. I'm embarassed to admit that my husband and I couldn't quite figure out the bed linens. Our bed was made with a bottom sheet and two down duvets on top. We assume they were intended to be used as individual personal duvets, but I'm still not 100% certain. That was certainly our problem and nothing to do with the hotel itself - just a funny aside I thought I may mention.
The restaurant at Albergo Milano is fantastic. If they had been open both nights of our stay, we would have eaten there twice! But, as it was, they were only open once. The menu was a refreshing, creative take on Italian classics. The carrot soup was divine! A fantastic gourmet meal at a most modest price.
Varenna is the perfect setting for this perfect hotel - both are quiet, sleepy and unbelievably romantic.
Serenity Personified!from A TripAdvisor Member
A delightful stay in a nicely upgraded cozy 8-room hotel with a great staff. Owners 'Egy' & Bettina, and Maria, are excellent hosts. Try to have their wonderful dinner at least once during your stay (or, perish the thought, if you are staying elsewhere - book this dinner for an evening!).
Varenna is one of those special places for us - quiet and beautiful with easy access to many other venues close by. Look forward to a return visit here!

My favourite little hotelfrom Quevin
We stayed for one night in mid-March and I was really sorry to leave. Despite the unusually cool weather in March, I would have been happy to hang-out for several more days. The town is pretty and the hotel's location is ideal.
We were greeted warmly by Bettina and all of needs were met with ease. The star of the show is the lakeview and you should definitely book a room with a terrace or balcony.
I have already told all of my friends about this place. We will definitely be back!
on Lake Comofrom A TripAdvisor Member
We were greeted by the owner, who was very friendly. She brought us up to our room and showed us around. It was a very nice room. Modern new furniture, light and airy, and a spacious bathroom. The bed was very comfortable. We had a side room which the terrace overlooked the lake and the gardens.
We made dinner reservations at the hotel restaurant when we booked our room. I am really glad we did. The meal and the atmosphere were excellent. We had a gourmet meal on the terrace overlooking Lake Como and the sun set. The meal, prepaired by the owner, was one of the best. A meal prepared with only fresh ingredients, a bottle of Prosecco, and a warm Italian sunset over Lake Como; we felt like we were dropped into "Shangri La". Actually, we booked dinner reservations for the next night also.
They do have a cat, Sashimi, who has the run of the hotel. He visited us in our room one evening. If that is a problem, they will do their best to keep him away.
We highly reccommend the Albergo Milano to anyone traveling to Varenna. We look forward to returning there in the near future.
Worth every penny.from shannon50
Top Local Tips for Varenna
Local Ferries Get a ferry day pass for just 10 euros and take a full day to explore each of the major towns (mennagio, bellagio, and varenna) at your own pace. This place is one of the most beautiful in Italy - closest place in beauty is Amalfi.
Varenna Chose Varenna because there was a railway station within walking distance of Hotel. Plus ferry station within walking distance of hotel. Easy access to other villages and towns without hiring a car.Hotel has good restaurant but near to other restaurants and bars so there is a good choice not the place for night life or shopping but get on the boat to Bellagio. Ideal spot, ideal hotel.
Transfer from / to Milan airports Just make the taxi reservation from / to Milan airports with the hotel desk in order to avoid price surprise from Milan taxi drivers.
