We had two nights here and it was a great hotel from which to explore the beautiful Cinque Terre. It's at the top of the village, so up a steep hill but also a bit quieter. Our room was very clean and the owners were very friendly and helpful. They also provided an excellent gluten-free breakfast for my wife. I... More

My fiancé and I visited Riomaggiore for two nights and stayed in Locanda del Sole. We were extremely pleased with our visit. Our room was surprisingly large and spacious and was also very clean. The room had great air conditioning, all the necessary amenities and also had a mini bar/fridge. While the hotel is a bit of a walk/hike uphill... More

Room was clean and spacious with a nice terrace (Note - no view of sea). Enrico the manager was outstanding in the lead up to our stay and also during. Breakfast is included in the cost of the room and it was amazing. Enrico makes a great cappuccino! Whilst it is located on the top of the hill in Riomaggiore,... More

We chose this hotel for the ease of parking, but the helpfulness, and friendly attitude of the owners made it exceptional. The breakfast had the best croissants we have had yet on this trip and Enrico was so warm and friendly it was a treat to stay here. He showed us videos of the big flood in Vernazza in 2011... More

The Locanda del Sole (or Hotel del Sole) is run by a very nice husband and wife, and they are very helpful with all kinds of suggestions. It is a great place if you are arriving by car, since parking in Cinque Terre is very limited. Strongly recommend. We stayed as a family of four in two rooms. Reasonable rates... More

The accommodations were great, but the reason this hotel deserves an excellent rating is because Enrico and his wife go out of their way to make sure their guests are enjoying their stay. My girlfriend and I stayed here during our month-long trip across Europe, and this was our favorite place to stay because of the outstanding hospitality. Every time... More

This was our 3rd visit to the Cinque Terre and we were so pleased that this time we choose the Locanda del Sole hotel to stay at. Enrico our host was charming, he spoke very good English and was extremely helpful during our stay. Our room was great, large, it had a fridge, a rarity in Europe and we had... More

Enrico and his wife, the owners of this boutique hotel, made our stay unforgettable. Within 24 hours of booking the hotel, I received an e-mail from Enrico of how to get to the hotel, a detailed map, and his contact details in case we needed help upon arrival. Once we arrived, they greeted us beyond pleasantly and provided us with... More

This hotel is located on the main street in Riomaggiore up the hill and is well located for access to the train station (about a ten minute walk). Upon arrival, for our room, there was an ascent of about 40 steps that we had to do with luggage but Enrico, the host, very kindly helps you with that. He speaks... More

We had a very friendly greeting. Our room was older style, small but clean. Breakfast continental style was good. We would have been happy with our stay but found our room to be very noisy hearing people talking next door. We requested another room which there were none but am sure all rooms would be the same. We therefore only... More
