    • Older travelers
      7.0

      The location and pool were good.

      Hotel did not seem really customer focused and did not reflect the rating on 4 stars. Based on service actual rating should be a decent 3.

    • Couple
      6.2

      Quite expensive in regard to services they provide. Breakfast was not what one would expect from a 4-star hotel, even if it is in Italy.

    • Family with children
      7.0

      Very helpful member of staff on front desk who did a lot of phoning around for us. In general the staff were very friendly and great with our four month old daughter. The lake view from our room was great and the room itself very spacious.

      I would say it was a little pricey, but I suppose that's what you should expect in peak season with a lake view

    • Group of friends
      4.2

      location

      Unhelpful staff. Difficult to understand the four stars ranking. Charitably a three stars hotel. Unimaginative (balcony without a view unless standing up, plastic chairs, no privacy from neighboring rooms), old, poorly maintained (broken plastic wall-clock, cigarette marks) room design, poor amenities.

    • Older travelers
      7.8

      Great location, lakefront in Varenna. Good atmosphere in an old hotel and a bonus is the pool.

      Smokers were allowed to smoke in the outside breakfast area, making it too unpleasant for non smokers to enjoy that area, or anywhere inside near the open doors!

    • Older travelers
      5.4

      Location

      No lunch service, no umbralla's at pool

    • Group of friends

      The wonderful view

      The lady at the restaurant was extremely unfriendly, somthing I havenever before expereinced. This was so bad that I am debating whether we will ever come back.

    • Older travelers
      7.4

      We loved the access to the lovely, quiet town of Varenna and the views of the Lake from the room were amazing. The pool area looked really nice but 2 days of rain kept us from enjoying it. The desk staff were very helpful.

      The room itself is rather blah and the bathroom is quite basic. But open up the shutters and be amazed by a fabulous view.

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      The staff was delightful and very helpful in all things. We had a balconey and lake view and it was beautiful and very relaxing. Every morning and evening just to sit and watch the lake and the world go by either on our balconey or down by the pool was a peaceful way to enjoy the beautiful Italian lake. We met people from all over the world and enjoyed getting to know them and we all relaxed and enjoyed the Hotel Royal Victoria.

    • Older travelers
      7.4

      The views and the location were wonderful. The hotel is nice but a little be ruin down.

      Some of the guess were very noisy. The restaurant was in a great place but foot was not exceptional and too expensive for the quality.

      Location, staff, breakfast, view

      The only thing is that the shower was a bit tight (small) but everything worked.

    • Older travelers
      4.6

      Location over-looking Lake Como is fabulous. But this is not a four star hotel.

      Hotel decor and facilities don't live up to location.

    • Older travelers
      8.2

      Very nice, very comfortable. Convenient with cafe. Rooms are a bit small but we did have a king size bed. The balcony is too small for chairs but has a great view of lake. I would stay there again.

    • Family with children
      8.2

      A very central location, and we were upgraded to a room with a lake view which was excellent

    • Single
      8.2

      Staying in a room with a balcony overlooking Lake Como.

      The hotel staff was reticent to recommend restaurants aside from their own.
