This is an excellent B&B located on the main street in Riomaggiore. The rooms are big enough that the self made breakfast at the small breakfast nook in the room works very well. There is also a fridge in the room. The hostess, Madalena is very knowledgeable about the local area and speaks very good English ( she is from... More

We traveled for several weeks around Europe and as a result we had many different accommodations throughout our stay. This was one of our favorite places. The price was great for what we received. The room (Wisteria) was very clean, which I am quite picky about! It is a room right along the main street and has a balcony. With... More

We had such a perfect stay in Riomaggiore and at lovely il Boma. A personal and cute B&B right in the heart of the village. The owner made us feel really welcome, really appreciated it! We would truly recommend Riomaggiore and il Boma when in Cinque Terre!

IlBoMa is a great place to stay. Central location and very affordable. Maddy was very good about keeping in contact and helping us find the place. We stayed in the yellow room. Breaksfast was simple but good. I'm a light sleeper and we never heard anyone else and we slept great. Cute view from the window. Bathroom was separate from... More

We spent three delightful nights at Maddy's BB. It is located within easy walking distance of the train station and centrally located for restaurants, the laundromat, ferry terminal, beach and much more! Cinque Terre is absolutely delightful and Riomaggiire is such an historic gem to stay at. While we were a little overwhelmed by the number of tourists each day,... More

We loved il Boma. It is located in the middle of the town with access to everything you would need. The parking was convenient and affordable. Be sure to downsize your luggage for this place though because it is a lot of stairs to the place. The room looked just as the pictures. Maddy was a great host and showed... More

My wife and stayed at il Boma for three nights and really enjoyed our stay. The location was perfect, right in the middle of town, and the room was very nice. I would recommend il Boma to anyone travelling to the Cinque Terre.

Even before we arrived Maddy emailed us directions to the B&B. The instructions were clear and we found it easily. We had the 3rd floor and the steps weren't too bad. Our first impression of the room was very favourable... clean, bright and roomy. We also had a small balcony that had a couple of clothesline which came in handy... More

We stayed for two nights at Il Boma. The room was spacious and well appointed. And Maddy was very helpful. Our favorite part was people watching out the window on the main street. Lots to see! It is also located above a small laundry mat, which was very convenient as we were running low on clean clothes. And Maddy's advice... More

What can I say, this place was AMAZING! We got a room with huge windows, breathtaking views of the water, a nice breeze and an extremely clean room. Breathtaking doesn't even cover it. Also, the owner is very sweet and helpful (she gave us a little tour/background on the area while we were on the way in) and she was... More
