This is the second review I'm writing for il Boma. I was lucky enough to come to Cinque Terre two years in a row, and I knew right away that I would book a room with il Boma. My fiance and I stayed in the Blu room which had a beautiful balcony that we could sit on and take in... More

I stayed in the Blu Room which overlooks the main street of the little town. It was a beautiful room with my own bathroom, the room was stocked with delicious treats, yoghurt and fruit each day and hot croissants are delivered daily for breakfast. The balcony overlooks the main street of the little village and was wonderful to sit out... More

We had a private room and a large private bathroom down the hall. It was great to wake up and open the windows to hear the sounds of the street. At night, with the windows closed, it was quiet. The bed was comfortable. It's a little walk up the hill, from the train station (about 10 min.) and then up... More

Very helpful and welcoming owner! Maddy is available and it was very nice of her to offer us a bottle of homemade limoncello upon our departure! The homemade croissants for breakfast were also really nice. Nothing fancy or luxurious, but clean, efficient and very conveniently located.

My wife and I stayed at Il Boma for two nights, 5/31 - 6/1/15. It is an extremely small - 3 rooms only - B&B in the very center of Riomaggiore. Our stay there was delightful. Maddy is an extremely cordial hostess. Even before we actually checked in (we arrived mid-morning) she provided us with maps and loads of useful... More

The owners are super nice people, the janitor is also very nice and friendly. Centrally located, easy to find, clean, cute and reasonably priced. From there you can go to the hikes or stay in the center of town, or go to the pebble beach. Laundromat next door, clothes line to dry your clothes outside your window if you are... More

From the moment Maddie showed us to the parking spot to showing us our room, she was just perfect and so hospitable. Room lovely and clean with a small fridge in it. Bathroom large. Beautiful view. Fresh croissants for breakfast left in a wicker basket outside room with everything you could wish for in the fridge. Tea and coffee making... More

Last year we had a great stay with Maddy and Franco at Il BoMa B&B in Riomaggiore; we would recommend anyone to stay there. When returning this year with our grown up children we were happy to learn we could rent the Gabri apparment; a fully equipped 5 bed two room panoramic view appartment. You reach Gabri throug the stairs,... More

Great location on the main steel in Riomaggiore . Easy access from the train station, nice walk actually . Maddy does a great job. Rooms are clean and quiet. Open the window and do listen to life in the small village. Expect to hear the church bells each morning at 7:00. Part of the charm, you will want to get... More

Spent 3 nights here in May 2015. Maddy very helpful before and during our stay. So glad we stayed here after visiting the other towns. A short uphill walk from the train station which we managed to do with 2 very heavy suitcases. Our room had the external bathroom. bathroom was huge and the room is cosy. The room was... More
