This is your typical small town Italian Hotel. I can't rate it by big city standards, the price was very good, much cheaper than than the Cinque Terre region. The rooms were spacious and clean, although they had that musty "old hotel " smell and were NOT modern. The balcony was very small. The WIFI only worked properly in the... More

As others mentioned this place is all about the location. The views are great and the swimming are is awesome. Service is great but the rooms are in need of a huge update. They are 3* at best. Toiletries are 2* and shower is terrible. Also odd is that the hotel rents chairs, on a yearly basis, to non guests.... More

Hotel location good, outside pool area very good. Hotel rooms tired and very dated in need of a good revamp. A bit pricey for what they are offering in terms of rooms. Monica on reception very informative and helpful.

We caught up with some friends from Fort Lauderdale who were visiting Liguria. The staff was more than helpful and Monica 1 and Monica 2 are great to accomodate and help. The pool area is superb. The restaurant recommendation to Angolo 48 worked out well. The proximity of the train station made it easy to visit Cinqueterre and Genova without... More

Reasonable value hotel very close to railway station and right on the beach. Great pool and ocean position. Two Monica's on reception were excellent ambassadors for hotel. Room on level one overlooking beach had great aspect. Continental breakfast was adequate. Bathroom was somewhat small with tiny shower but had good bathroom amenities. Room and balcony needed to be a bit... More

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The staff were really friendly and the two Monica's on reception were so helpful and welcoming. The hotel was in an ideal location with the train station, bus stop and pier for catching boats all within a few minutes walk. We loved the sunbathing area and had a huge terrace off our... More

Stayed here for four nights at the beginning of May. Two ladies 60 plus. As mentioned before the two Monica's we're amazing as we're the rest of the staff. We had already experienced the extreme helpfulness of Monica one on the phone,because we booked direct with the hotel. Wonderful wonderful views,excellent location not to far from town and the ferries.... More

While the view is superb, the room is small yet comfortable for the sea view room with large veranda. The bathroom is small and the shower a bit confing. The biggest dissapointment came on our last night when we had reserved in the restaurant we thought was associated with the hotel. The menu is only served for 2 persons for... More
