There are only a few things that have not been said about the Villa d'Este and its beauty. It is a remarkable place, one of the few spots on the world where perfection is driven to the utmost, and to the very detail. It is not just the landscape of lake Como that is enchanted, it is the way, the...

This hotel is not the musty old place I remembered. We had a spectacular room with a view.....hike through the gardens is delightful....tennis, beautiful pool bobbing on the lake....all wonderful...delicious breakfast....My only complaint is that the restaurant is very stuffy, requiring jacket and tie.....and the menu for outside and in is very much the same and very heavy. Other than...

The floating pool is awesome. We rented...

My husband and I took a day trip to Lake como from Milan. We had heard how beautiful that place is but I didn't realize it would be that magical , and Villa d'Este played a huge part in that! We took a private Vaporetto ( don't pay more than 45 euro) to Villa d'Este . It's breathtaking seeing coming...

The Villa has been on my wish list for well over 10 years - and it did not disappoint. The location is simply "exquisite". Its nestled in a small cove, with the property right on the water, overlooking Lake Como. The staff were professional, and extraordinarily attentive. Rooms were big, clean and I loved the pressed linen sheets. The highlight...

We had a really wonderful lunch at the Villa d'Este on Easter Monday. The hotel is everything you would expect based on its reputation. We were greeted at the gate and once it was established we had a room reservation we were welcomed in! The hotel is immaculate and the setting impressive. Lunch itself was as you would expect from...

We had been to the hotel many years ago but were pleased to see some upgrades. Everyone was very welcoming and helpful. The breakfast buffet was one of the best. I do feel the grille room could have a better menu. Such as more informal choices for dinner. The sheets could be upgraded to a better quality and so can...
