Absolutely fantastic and warm hospitality from Fernando during our stay. He went out of the way to cater to our needs to enjoy Cinque Terre and at Arriana Hill house. We loved the tranquil and the view of La Spezia. With our heartfelt wishes.

My wife and me stayed in Arianna in a mid October 14 as a base for our invasion to Cinque Terra. As it was already mentioned, the road to the hotel is pretty challenging for less experiences drivers, especially when it is raining and in the darkness (unfortunately it was raining during our visit). But when you reach the hotel,... More

This was our second visit to Arianna Hill House. It was just as wonderful the 2nd time around. Alessia and Fernando were just as gracious. The rooms were comfortable and well maintained. We will definitely stay there again in the future when we return to Italy.

Very nice place to stay, great views. The steep, winding road (about 2km) to reach the hotel is a challenge, especially when it is dark. Owner Fernando is very friendly and helpful. Nice, clean and comfortable rooms and bathroom. Ideal place to visit Cinque Terre. You can take the boat or train in La Spezia and there are also some... More

As other reviewers have described, the hotel is up a very steep and winding road with multiple flights of steps after you reach the parking deck. For us, the magnificent view and surrounding area was worth the challenge to get there, but beware if you are not fit enough to carry your luggage up the steep flights. The host, Fernando... More

you should be aware that finding the property is via an extremely winding & very, very steep road & not for the faint hearted. The steps up to the property outside from the car park are also steep. Our room was again up further stairs making it a real task to take our luggage upstairs. the facilities are very basic,... More

This is a great place to establish a base for exploring Cinque Terre and Portovenere. Being mid-October, it was the beginning of their off-season. For 2 of the 3 nights we were there, we were the only guests (the Shelley room is wonderful with great views of the water), yet Fernando, the owner, who lives off-property, came in early each...

We stayed four nights and found everything just right. Fernando was extremely helpful and Alessia gave us a warm welcome. We would have liked to have been able to make a cup of tea at the end of the day but this wasn't possible. Not all rooms have a fridge but there was no problem using the fridge in the... More
