My girlfriend and I checked in on a Thursday. When we got there the owner barely spoke English so we had difficulty understanding her. She said something about us changing rooms after one night, but we weren't sure. I double checked hostel world and saw nothing about is switching rooms. We had three nights booked in double bed privates with... More

We didnt end up staying here. We canceled at 9am on the 10th for our reservation of 10am on the 13th. (Over 72 hours) however the woman on the phone was extremely rude, told us we would be charged for the night anyway because it was too late. We remained polite and calm explaining the hours. She hung up on... More

Amazing location a 1 minute walk from the train station! It didn't bother us but be aware the train you can hear from your room. Nice balcony that we were attached too. Wasn't too busy we had the shared bathroom all to ourselves. I would suggest eating breakfast out. We ate breakfast at a great little bar around the corner... More

Everything went pretty well. Very nice people there, very nice city. It's less then 5 mimutes from the sea, less than 2 form the train station. There was no bathroom inside the room, but it was right outside the door, and it was always nice and clean. No train noises at night for me :)

First we weren't expecting much as its 2 stars. Just cleanliness. Each day the towels were changed and bed made. The bathroom has a horrible smell coming from it. There was no aircon which was fine as the fan was enough. The lady we met on our arriving day was an older lady and very rude. Our booking said breakfast... More

We stayed here because there was absolutely nothing left. After arrived my friend as I were greeted extremely rudely by the owner, then taken up flights of stairs to a room with only a fan and a horrible smell. When I asked about breakfast as it was meant to be included in our stay she said no breakfast it's 10... More

2 stars for how clean the room was. Otherwise we will not return or recommend. Breakfast was ten euro EACH the cappuccino was the best part, otherwise the selection was scarce considering how much it cost the two of us. Yogurt and full pieces of fruit down the street are only €3.00 + €1.50 for a cappuccino. Train was loud... More

This is a budget hotel and for us we were hoping for a little better. We stayed 3 nights. Rooms were clean and serviced every day. We had ensuite Bathroom which was very small with limited space for toiletry storage. The bidet is a waste of space in our opinion. No bar fridge, tea/coffee facilities. Trains are noisy although we... More

We booked two rooms at Pensione Sorriso. Francesca was so kind and welcoming! Our rooms were comfortable, clean and neat. One room (#25?) backed to the Vernazzola river, that allowed a delightful sound of water when the windows were open. This pensione was perfect for access to the beach activities, hiking, the train, and bus connections to San Bernadino and... More

Had a really pleasant three nights in Pensione Sorriso. Room was clean and the staff was extremely friendly. Really good breakfast! Only con was shared bathroom, but the bathroom itself was really clean and spacious so after all it wasn't that bad. I highly recommend Pensione Sorriso!
