We enjoyed three nights at this hotel. We had a junior suite. The room was spacious and had a nice balcony. The only warning is that the shower stall is very small and some larger people might not be able to get into the shower. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet and our table on the terrace. The hotel location was... More

As part of a Backroads hiking tour we really enjoyed the style and service at this hotel. Breakfasts were very good and the room sizes were generous, not the usual European cramped quarters. Everything in the hotel seems to have come from a well-to-do family home so the atmosphere is inviting. We would happily stay there again if in the... More

Located away from the sea inside the city. The room was updated period piece with its own walk in closet and an easy to use safe for valuables. Atmosphere homey and pleasant with moderate breakfast buffet. Although, located off the the well trod path, there was street noise. Sleep was ok.Would not be my first choice in SM but would... More

If I was to believe what I read on Trip Advisor, I would not have stayed at Hotel Jolanda. My husband and I were both pleasantly surprised. We had a lovelly clean room with a great shower. The staff are very friendly. The buffet breakfast is adequate, again with staff making sure your needs were met. We even had dinner... More

I stayed at the Hotel Jolanda in early May. My husband is disabled and after 6 years of being a full time carer I was taking a 'Respite' holiday. I found the hotel perfect for my requirements. The staff were very kind. There was a good range of food for breakfast. My room was a good size for a single... More

Lovely hotel for the 3star rating, good selection at breakfast, walking distance to beach and ferries, great small restaurants close by. Front desk was helpful with trains and hiking options to Cinque de Terre area. Only complaint was taxi ride back to train station seemed unreasonably high, and front desk agent made the call for taxi driver.

It was an OK hotel, But I wouldn't recommended for more then 2 nights. It was old, not very clean and with very thin walls! We could hear the upstairs guests every... More

We stayed At this hotel for six nights. It was very centrally located to train station, restaurants and the harbor. The room was an ok size, you can't expect big rooms in Italy. My only complaint is that the room was too warm at night.The breakfast was a very nice buffet. I agree with the reader that said it was... More

This is a 1920s-1930s Art Deco hotel. I found the décor overpowering, but my wife liked it. To judge for yourself, look at the visitors' pictures on this site. Good beds in a smallish room (but rooms are small in Italy) and good bathroom. Breakfast was sometimes rather crowded indoors, due to cooler weather, but the restaurant had closed (for... More
