Look forward to seeing TiTi and family again!
We missed our train stop and they came to pick us up in the next city at 10:30 at night which saved us from waiting for the last train. The staff/owners/chef/waitresses were all extremely kind and helpful. Our room was in the annex building facing the water. It was well equipped, clean and spacious. The morning breakfast was really good. We had cappuccino, espresso, fresh/dried fruit, several cereals, yogurt, breads/jellies, pastries, meat, juices(very good), and eggs and bacon if you wanted. They had a full bar and outside restaurant as well. They are located close to the ferry and the train station is a 15 minute walk. This is an old historic hotel that will enchant you with the old furniture, pictures, architecture....just lovely.

Great Stay in Varenna
The staff were super helpful. Our backpacks were stolen on our way there, and when some good samaritans found them and called the hotel to track us down, the staff was super helpful in arranging details to meet them. They also helped us find charging cords, including raiding their lost and found, too. Location is also nice as its not in the heart of varenna, but super close. Great breakfast, (eggs and bacon!) plus pastries, great fresh fruit, and coffee. Ask for room in Annex with Lake view. It has amazing private patio (like 10 feet x 30 feet!)

A charming gem, great location
Everything was top notch. We were asked to change rooms which was a bit of an inconvenience. But that in no way detracted from our enjoyment. The staff was wonderful and we liked the food in your restaurant very much. A minor problem: we were charged two 5 Euro cover charges when we ate dinner there our first night and did not realize the error til later. 5 euro is rather high in my experience 2 or 3 euro per person is customary. And we were billed that amount twice. So 10 euro cover charge: too much! Other than that, our visit was wonderful and I would definitely recommend Hotel Olivedo to friends and family.
