Il Boma is like a scene out of a movie. The rooms are super clean and spacious and located in the heart of Riomaggiore. That allows easy access to the train, water taxi harbor, and hiking trails. The markets, restaurants ,and a laundramat are an easy walk away (but hang the wet cloths on the line outside your window----you'll feel... More

Il Boma is perfectly situated on the main street of Riomaggiore. Close to everything, yet quiet and relaxing. This, combined with a very friendly and helpful host made our stay just perfect. I wold recommend Il Boma to everyone going to Cinque Terre !

A great place to stay in Cinque Terre (In Riomaggiore, the first village on the train from La Spezia). Very easy and quick to get to the other villages using the train. Very cleanly, and couldn't ask for a more friendly host. Very accommodating.

Il Boma is a jewel of the Cinque Terre area. Located on the main street of Riomaggiore, it allows easy access to the ocean, hiking trails, and exploration of narrow streets and winding stairs. The owners anticipate your needs, and even give you the chance to hang your clothes to dry "Italian style" - right outside your window. Breakfast in... More

Il Boma is a wonderful base from which to explore the Cinque Terre region. It's in the heart of Riomaggiorre, a quick walk from the marina and the train station. We stayed in the Blue room which was impeccably clean, modern, comfortable, very reasonably priced, with ample storage room and even a little balcony. There was air con and even... More

My family of 6 and I had a wonderful stay at Il Boma in July 2014. Maddy is a lovely host, providing helpful information. We stayed in all 3 rooms. 2 of the rooms were spacious and had air conditioning. The third room was smaller, but Maddy had been upfront about that when we made our reservation and it worked... More

We had a fantastic experience at Il Boma! We knew we had picked the right place to stay from the first email we received from Maddy. She provided information about Cinque Terre that one just cannot find online. Maddy is very attentive, a great host who made us feel at home with the convenience of our own privacy. We slept... More
