Villa d'Este became a Grand Hotel in 1873. It is a complex of two beautiful palaces: The Cardinal Building and Queen's Pavilion. The 152 rooms, equipped with every comfort, are all differently and elegantly furnished with antiques, paintings and vintage prints, silks, brocades, velvets of rare preciousness and luxurious marble bathrooms. Terraces, balconies and large windows take in the magnificent views of Como Lake which, along with Villa d'Este's park and gardens, is the main protagonist of the beauty that surrounds guests.
