This is one of those extraordinary places that you pay for but you get the full value for that outlay. Beautiful and extraordinarily well run. I would definitely recommend to couples and families alike.

Although we visited for only for a lazy lunch we were absolutely enchanted. Too much to praise - from the meticulously maintained property to the awesome food to the fabulous wines to the superbly turned out staff to the perfectly manicured locations - and yet it would not be enough! It was indeed enchanting to experience Villa d'Este first hand... More

Sublime hotel, once in a lifetime experience. More than you could ever wish for! Luxurious rooms, scrupulously clean, wonderful turndown service. Food was glorious, breakfast was comprehensive and without fault. Ultra expensive. You get what you pay for and this establishment was exceptional.

Attended a wine symposium at the end of the season at this amazing hotel. I had read about this place before attending and it exceeded my high expectations. Service, room quality, food, location etc. were all first rate. Breakfasts were fantastic. We had banquet meals (260 people plus) every night and the food was the finest for such a large... More

This was the second time I've been fortunate enough to visit Villa D'Este for a business conference. After the first visit, I said on a FB post that if I've seen a more beautiful view in my life then I can't remember it. Having visited again this week, I think that comment still stands. Luckily, I haven't had the 'pleasure'... More

After visiting Como for many years,every time we were in Milan on business, now that we do not work anymore we decided to go and stay at this hotel for a weekend while in Italy.

Despite the cost we found our stay here quite marvellous. Total comfort with a magnificent room overlooking the lake. A good choice of restaurants. Gentle animation.Good cocktails. Great swimming with choice of indoor,floating or in the lake! We'll be back - bank manager permitting!

Arrived there about 9 days ago, a trip to Como with friends, and as soon as we arrived i felt i was leaving a dream... All because of the extraordinary scenery, the peace, the green beauty around, the awsome paladium architecture od the villa d'este, and the blue reflections of como lake touching the greenery... We all stayed speachless.... This... More

This was one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed in. The bar/lounge at night was great for watching and meeting people from all over the world. October is a great time to go to Lake Como - less crowded, cooler weather, better service.
