Would definately return, very good value for money. Ample car parking-. We stayed here as a base for visiting the area. Our room was quite adequate and we were lucky to have a terrace where we could have pre dinner nibbles and drinks before wandering of to eat at one of the many well priced restaurants. Staff were very pleasant... More

Stayed there for wedding and had balcony and sea view room. It had drawbacks in that slightly Fawlty Towers feel ( every time you used the wall plug you hit your head on the TV shelf , the shower had a razor sharp high rim which tripped you up a couple of times) but the view, position and friendliness of...

We stayed in Hotel Elena for 1 night starting our trip visiting Liguria. The hotel is clean, staff friendly and we enjoyed the view from our balcony and the breakfast on the terrace. The hotel is very easy to find and there is a parking on place. While you are in Recco you must taste the famous Focaccia, its delicious!... More

Modest hotel but great located and the view is wonderful. The negative points are: water pressure very low, noisy and the staff is not very profesional specially for the breakfast. I will not stay another time at this hotel.

Recco has nothing to detain the visitor and can be safely ignored but the location of Hotel Elena makes up for it. A "find" for those seeking a relaxing modest hotel to explore the Portofino peninsula. On arrival (by car) the priority is to secure a parking place. The hotel has two car parks, one at street level next to... More

Parking in front of the hotel and free private beach in the back. If possible, ask for room on 2nd floor for the view. Breakfast was... More

My choice of Hotel Elena was idaeal. Despite the fact that Recco is not pretty town Hotel Elena is a good place to arrive by a car ( a parking lot is a big plus) and visit other towns by boat or bus. Rooms are simple but the view recompenses everything. A tasty breakfast in the teracce is very relaxed.... More

We chose this hotel based on Tripadvisor reviews, seeking a place from which Cinque Terre is readily assessible, and were not disappointed. The Cinque Terre villages themselves were heaving with people, whereas Recco was distant enough (a bit less than an hour by train) to be relatively quiet. The hotel has good facilities and very helpful staff, also a limited... More
