Highlights

Small and unpretentious, this gem of a hotel is in a prime position on the shores of Lake Como.

The lack of big hotels and its position mid-lake make Varenna one of the best base for lake Como, in addition there is also a rail station with direct trains to Milan.

The small size of the hotel allows for personal attention and lots of local recommendations.

Overview

The Albergo Milano is housed in a traditional early 20th century lakeside building in the heart of Varenna and with picture-postcard views of Lake Como. Painted in warm shades of ochre, mustard and sienna red, and set amidst a sea of terracotta-tiled roofs, the hotel is an excellent choice for anyone seeking authenticity and a fairly informal atmosphere.

Rooms

Original features blend with contemporary style and facilities in the rooms. The main hotel bedrooms are located on two floors and feature terraces or balconies, while additional rooms are available in the Casa Rossa, a sister building just 50m from the hotel. There is also the option of staying in an apartment, the perfect option for families or groups of friends.

Dining

The restaurant La Vista has glorious views of the lake through the large windows and from the terrace, where dinner is served during the summer. The restaurant offers an à la carte menu with regional and national dishes in addition to vegetarian options. A terrace bar is open throughout the day and evening.

 

There are plenty of restaurants close by if you prefer to dine out.

Location

Smaller than its grander neighbour of Bellagio, the village of Varenna has a slightly more authentic feel than other Como resorts and has a pretty waterfront and a tiny stone beach.

 

In practical terms, it is very conveniently located on the lake, with direct trains to Milan, and is connected to other towns and villages on the lake by regular car and passenger ferries.
