We stayed at the Il Boma between July 25th to 29h. It is a wonderful location on the main street in Riomaggiore. Maddy welcomed us and gave us all the information regarding the room, restaurants nearby, suggested hikes, etc. The room was very clean and had everything we needed. We highly recommend the Il Boma!

It's the second time I stay at this B&B and love it. The owners are very sweet, gave useful tips on the restaurants and things to do. the location is perfect, close to the station and parking area. Would definitely go back a third time.

This B & B was a great find. It was spotlessly clean, and in a very convenient location. We were able to walk there from the train, and it was located on the main drag. The proprietor was very congenial and made sure we had everything we needed. She also brought fresh croissants every morning for our breakfast, and kept... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at il Boma for three nights at the end of April 2015. Our host was incredibly helpful, giving us an introduction to the area, explaining different walks that we could try, and giving us maps and recommendations of local restaurants. We decided to opt for the breakfast option which I would highly recommend - freshly... More

We had the "yellow room" at Il Boma for two nights at the end of June and enjoyed our stay. I do want to warn people that based on the reviews I thought all the rooms have an attached bathroom and AC but this is not the case. The Yellow Room has a bathroom down the hall (it is private... More

I was lucky enough to book a three night stay for early July back in April and was not disappointed (tip: get in early). I had the yellow room, with the separate bathroom, as the other two rooms were taken, and found it to be perfect for me travelling solo. Two people might find the yellow room a bit tight... More

We stayed at Il Boma for three nights during our time in the 5 Terre and loved it. Maddy is a most gracious host who, from the moment we booked, filled us in on very useful information about our stay in the 5 Terre. The room was small but comfortable with all we needed and more. Fresh croissants, yogurt, juice... More

My husband & I were referred to il Boma from a family member. Once we booked our stay in the Blue Room with Maddy, she emailed us a bunch of information about Cinque Terre. She was so helpful in assisting us with train information, hiking trails, etc. The room was very clean & location was great. Maddy delivered fresh baked... More

Very personalised, friendly service. Host met us at the station, and took us up to our rooms. Apartment was spacious, clean and well furnished. The views were spectacular. Worth the steps we had to climb to get there. Host ran us through the town's facilities. Will definitely come back.
