We stayed at the il Boma for 2 nights the middle of October. We drove from Malpensa airport stopping along the way on the coast to enjoy the spectacular view. The weather was a little unsettled, thick fog rolled in and we got a little lost. Luckily we stopped the right person to ask directions, Roberto who runs a luggage... More

The Il BoMa is the best B&B we stayed at in Italy. Riomaggiore is ideal to experience the friendliness, quaintness, and laid back atmosphere of the villages, in our opinion, far nicer than Monterosso. Maddy is an ideal host, extremely accommodating and helpful. We loved the fresh croissants for breakfast each morning, and the gift of limoncello on our departure.... More

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
