A last minute decision to go to Bonassola limited our lodging alternatives. But I'm glad we found this pensione because it would have been a shame to miss Bonassola. In fact, there were no rooms avaialble by the time we got there. The service from check-in/ check out, room cleaning and breakfast was great. The staff was happy to chat... More

This is no Four Seasons, but it is a practical and cozy establishment and an excellent value for the money. Here is exactly what it is: **Incredibly clean and tidy. They practically scrub the walls here. The bedsheets are crisp and the Pensione is dry (even when the weather outside is humid), the bathrooms are stocked with new soap, the... More

The hotel was quite nice, I booked a single room, and I honestly think it was the nicest single room I stayed in. The folks at the hotel were incredibly friendly and recommended me some wonderful other places to visit (like Porto Venere) and recommended how to get there. They also helped me find other bank machines when none of... More

....it would be a 5 star review. It's not luxury, it's not Michelin, it's not a historic or cultural landmark, BUT it's sooo cozy, it's driven by the women in the family in a very kind way, it's really good food, it's picturesque in its own way. If it wasn't for that god d... train. Not so bad on the... More

We were quite annoyed by two things: 1. the smell, and 2. being misled about the size of the room. There appears to be something wrong with the water trap in the showers, as our bathroom filled up with an awful sewage smell that spilled into the rest of the room if the door was left open. Very uncomfortable, but... More

You can't get much closer to the train station and this can be a problem if you are a light sleeper. When the train comes into or just by the station, you can hear it as if it is right outside and in fact, it is. The hotel provides earplugs, but we always bring our own. It is unnerving until...

We just returned home to Switzerland from a five day stay in Bonasolla and is was just wonderful. Good hotel, clean and very friendly owners. Authentic style and beautiful breakfast room and great location next to the station and a few steps away from the beach and restaurants. Wifi not just in the hotel but on the terrace as well....

We stayed at this hotel by accident. We were suppose to have gotten off the train at riomaggiore but due to a combination of unfortunate incidents we got off at bonassola. And it was 11pm. As such there was no trains back the other way. After enduring for an hour we managed to get the owner out of her bed... More

The pension is great located just near the train line and station. The pension provide you earplugs, but i recommend not to use them because you can feel the train passing at 5.00 in the morning, because the train is an integrated part of Cinque Terres zone. It's the only way of travel and the fastest one.

We used this hotel as a base while hiking the "Chinque Terre". We found it a charming place to stay with very friendly and helpful staff. The breakfast was plentiful and good. The room was comfortable and wifi was available throughout. The location was perfect as a base because it was located in a much quieter little town and only... More
