I recently stayed one night at the Villa Argentina with my boyfriend. We were traveling with another couple. It's definitely good to note that this hotel is quite hike to get to from the train station especially with large bags. They gave us two rooms at the villa, and ours was quite small had one window with a view into... More

This hotel is on top of a hill with great views of Riomaggiore and the sea, but it does mean a steep climb at the end of a long day hiking the Cinque Terre. Even worse if like us you were on the 3rd floor (no lift). You then try to have a shower and get barely a trickle of... More

Decent option for the area. We chose this hotel because of the view and parking option. The hotel has access to a nearby garage, which is a luxury in the area. Considering the options, this is a great choice if you want to be in Riomaggiore. It is a real hotel with a decent breakfast included as well as wifi.... More

I recently stayed two lovely nights at the Villa Argentina with 3 other people. We each had the cheaper, single rooms, but they had all the amenities and comfort we needed to hike the cinque terre, come home to relax, and then go out for a lovely dinner. My "planned room" apparently had a water leak, so they gave me... More

Hotel Villa Argentina is on a hill overlooking the ocean in Riomaggiore. This offers beautiful views from your room (if your room faces correctly), but also requires quite a hike up a steep hill. This is especially difficult if you have suitcases, and the city doesn’t have many cabs. With this said, the actual rooms are comfortable, but not very... More

This hotel is in a great location at the top of the main 'hill' in town. It gives a great view of the town and the water as you are looking from above (and a nice uphill walk after you have had a leisurely dinner by the water). The rooms were clean, free wifi, the breakfast was amazing with delicious,... More

i went here early summer of 2014 the location isn't too far from the train station of riomaggiore but for those who are carrying heavy luggage, beware, it is a steep road to reach the hotel but then once you have reached the hotel, a promising view will await you :D i rented the villa which way a few steps...

We arrived for a short getaway from the chaos of the major tourists sites. The rooms and bathrooms are small, but perfect for a short stay. Whilst the views are simply stunning; the hike up the hill with luggage was horrendous ( use the bus...about €2). The staff at the hotel were very friendly and offered advice about trains and...

I have read plenty of reviews regarding this property and am not impressed with the state of the room. The door fittings are loose, cobwebs can be seen on the walls, floor was not cleaned properly, shower head holder was broken/ loose and the hot water takes forever. The ceiling fan in the room emits sounds of a freight train... More

We had a wonderful week in the most beautiful location. The hotel was perfectly located with views over the picturesque Old Town. The staff were unfailingly helpful and friendly offering superb service. The Victoria Cocktail Bar was the best place to begin the evening on the terrace overlooking the sea. Our room was so clean and perfect for a week's... More
