We loved the quaintness of this property and the convenient location. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was fine. If you can’t walk up and down stairs then this is probably not the property for you. There is a very small lift to the third floor. (We were on 4th so had a few more stairs to climb with luggage.) We did fine. However, we were on the side where the wind was blowing from so we had a bit of a sleepless night. (No fault of the hotel) Weather was so bad that ferries didn’t cross all day. Disappointing, as our stay revolved around visiting Bellagio etc.

hotel room

Description of the standard hotel room isn't accurate. If you book a standard room plan on walking up 4 flights of stairs. The rooms have a small window near the floor so impossible to see out, thus the no view. The elevator is only for luggage and only goes to the 3rd floor so you will need to carry your luggage up a flight of stairs. 4th floor rooms (standard) ceiling is very low, great if you are short. Bathroom amenities aren't great, bring your own! The ferry is about 25 feet from hotel. Good for easy access but bad because of the noise. A lot of vehicle traffic, trucks etc and general people noise. Also NO black out drapes so room has a lot of street lights. My advice, book a superior room. The owner could be more pleasant.

Hotel Olivedo--charming!

Pros: Location, cleanliness, welcoming hostess.
Location: Varenna has several villas (Villa Monastero and Villa Cipressi) with beautiful gardens. Hike up to Castello di Vezio and La Fiumelatte.
We stayed at the Hotel Olivedo for 4 nights and found it very lovely with old-world charm. Our room was very large, comfortable, clean, with a terrace overlooking the harbor. The location is excellent--just a short walk from the train station and next to the passarella and ferry docks. Laura is a charming hostess and made us feel welcome. We ate at their restaurant which serves local dishes as well as other specialties, and we enjoyed it very much. Breakfasts were served on the front terrace and were substantial and tasty. Service was excellent. We highly recommend this hotel.
