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

Spent three days here in June, it was great weather and a good time to visit. The staff are very friendly and helpful, giving us maps and information on which of the other villages and hiking paths could be accessed. Included a simple but good breakfast each morning, and we had our own patio for some drinks in the late... More

Enrico the owner is incredibly helpful upon arrival and with recommending which walks are the best, his English is also fantastic. We also had a carspot reserved for us which was a huge plus. The rooms are clean and the hotel is only a very short walk from restaurants and bars. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend... More

All the other good reviews below are still true. The hotel is very convenient with secure parking as close to the old town as possible and a reasonable walk to restaurants, the train, or boats. The manager is extremely helpful and friendly and speaks excellent English with a lovely accent. As someone else below mentioned, he gave us the recommendation... More

I stayed in this hotel with my wife and kids for 2 nights and we enjoyed the hospitality of the staff. The manager Enrico was just awesome. Friendly to the kids and looking into details. Speaks good English too. Hotel is small and modestly furnished but is very clean. Breakfast was good. Hotel is strategically located on the way to... More

We loved this plain little hotel in the Cinque Terra region of Italy. It is not fancy, but our room was really large by European standards, with a large, if plain, bath. It was spotlessly clean. There are some stairs to the terrace level where our room was located (Enrico, the really charming innkeeper, says the stairs are free, and... More

This place was exactly what we needed. We rented a car to drive from Milan to Florence via Cinqueterre and needed a well located place to stay in Cinqueterre with parking included, since cars are forbidden in town. Locanda del Sole is located in Riomaggiore, one if the 5 towns of the Cinqueterre and has its own parking. It is... More

We stayed at Locanda del Sole for four nights to enable us to explore the beautiful Cinque Terre coast line. It really didn't disappoint. Although the hotel is situated at the top of the main street leading down to the harbour of Riomaggiore, it's not a long walk and at least the climb keeps you energised! The free car parking...

Top spot in every way!! -If arriving by train, be prepared to go up!! This position is worth the effort, and Enrico was most gracious lugging our packs up the steps to the top room. The room is small but very clean and adequate, and the beds were very comfortable. Perhaps the only draw-back (especially for Australians used to having... More

Hotel del Sole is a small, family-ran place. Located near the center of Riomaggiore, it is still close enough to the main Cinque Terre Road to have parking spots for customer cars - a rarity in this region. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Enrico gave us a good overview of the town and things to do. The breakfast... More
