For the price, the room is a good deal. It is sparsely decorated but clean with slate floors and bathroom. There is a little balcony with a nice hill view. Breakfast was typical with baked goods and yogurt though I was disappointed to see that much of the fruit was rotten. The real problem is that the hotel is very... More

We unfortunately be affected by a lack of water for a limit time period due to an idraulic accident in Arcola. It did not caused by the hotel staff but it even changed... More

I stayed there in July 2010, on my wy to Florence, chose it as a stop for one night, as it was near to the sea, in a beautiful place. This small hilltop village was really enchanting and the hotel was lovely, very nice, clean, tranquil. The sea was ca 2 km away, there was a bus going to the... More

Arrived after a long drive from Switzerland to be given a large room with balcony overlooking deep wooded valley and views of local village. Great start. Clean and tidy with decent ensuite and shower. Hotel is trying hard to be 'boutiqueish' with bright bold colours in profusion - yellows, reds, lime greens. It sort of works. Some parking and easy...

Experience beautiful. The receptionist was very polite and friendly with us. The hotel is colorful, clean and cheap. The Italian breakfast was varied: bread, pastries, cakes, creakers, cookies, biscuits, fruit, many kinds of tea, coffee, cappuccino, yogurt, butter, cheese etc. The young and friendly staff informed us about all the cities to visit in the area.

Well, the facilities are in an awful state...the owners sould renew them. Our room was dirty, and we had to call the staff to clean it. The cleanliness of a hotel is its biggest assest, in my opinion... The breakfeast was very limited and the quality and freshness of the pastry was bellow average. I wouldn't recommend anyone to book... More

Spacious. Great bathroom. Good breakfast with good variety. Ample parking if you're driving (use Waze iPad app to navigate). Try to get a room with a balcony. The hotel is close to the beach by car. Stay here for a vist to the Cinque Terre; take the ferry from Lerici.

For us location is everything. We were only five minutes from the big parking space between Lerici and San Terenzo, and after a long day at the market and the lively beach, we enjoyed the calm and serenity of this small hill town called Cerri. Ten minutes away we found great shopping and delicious restaurants in the beautiful ancient city... More

Wanted to use this hotel as a base to explore the region. The hotel is very basic and location is not the best, compared with other hotels and B&B in the near by villages. Breakfast was terrible, with all processed food and nothing fresh, not fruit or bread. The humidity was very high and there was mold everywhere. Could hear... More

Dear customer, we are very surprised that you have paid more than € 75,00 per night to stay at our hotel. The low-season tariff of the hotel is € 55,00 to have a double room. You might have reserved the hotel by an agency, which have earned more than necessary on your reservation. We have checked all the reservation from... More
