We knew we had a climb ahead of us when we got off the train in Riomaggiore, and it sure was! Locanda del Sole is almost at the top, far edge of town. Great view from up there, and you see everything that's going on in town as you go to and fro. As long as you're ready for it,... More

Location is spot on. Close enough for the restaurants, station/port and trails yet just up the hill enough to deter the majority of tourists. Very welcoming and a lovely place to stay. Be warned that a lot of the local restaurants don't work on Mediterranean time - the first night we turned up for food at closing time, most seem... More

We stayed here for five nights in September. We were driving so found the car parking invaluable. Our room was on the top floor which was a few more stairs, but we enjoyed our view and many glasses of good CT white on the private terrace. Enrico is an excellent host, helpful in every way and full of local tips.... More

I stayed here some time ago with my girlfriend. For the price, it is a nice little spot. Comfortable beds, air conditioned, and the room we stayed in had a large shared balcony, with glimpses of the sea. We had a nice evening one night with a German couple enjoying some wine. The rooms are simple. But the get the... More

From the train station it's a 10-15 minute hike up the main (almost only) Riomaggiore street to Locanda del Sole, and the rooms are on two terraces even higher up the hill above the hotel office. Our reward for this climbing was a pleasant room with also a sizable patio. And while the views may not be the breathtaking ones... More

Nice hotel at the top of the town. The drive by car to the hotel wasn't as bad as some made it out to be. There was a private parking lot at the hotel which is a huge advantage since it is very hard to find parking in the town. Enrico was a wonderful host, very cheerful and helpful with... More

After a very steep climb from the train station, I was relieved to be met by Enrico at the front gate of this charming B&B. I recommend the bus for the faint hearted! It wasn't so much the venue that we found so amazing, as the owner - Enrico! He couldn't have been more helpful and cheerful and it felt... More

Enrico was a wonderful host and he has a nice hotel. The rooms were clean and well appointed. We stayed 2 days and were happy with our choice. Note that while the hotel is within walking distance, it is mostly up a STEEP hill. If you have lots of luggage, you might want to take the local bus or a... More

My husband suffers from a cardiac condition that requires a hospital visit to sort out. While staying in Riomaggiore at this wonderful hotel, we had an unexpected occurence of this problem. After discussing it with our host he organised for his wife to take us to the nearest town in their car so we could attend the hospital there. He... More

My adult daughter and I stayed here for 4 nights in May. The hotel is clean, beds abit soft, but the owner Enrico is a delightful man, who went out of his way to help us. Even when it appeared that there may have been a train strike on the day we were leaving, he offered to drive us to... More
