My husband and I stayed here this past summer and we had a wonderful time. The hotel was beautiful and perfectly maintained. The view from the roof is spectacular!! The staff is what made the visit so special, though. They were always ready with an idea of where to eat, how to get somewhere, and ideas of things to do.... More

We spent a week at the Vis a Vis while on a tour. We loved the hotel! Others have mentioned the small room and bathroom but we found both perfectly fine for a European hotel. There was enough room to move comfortably around the bed on all sides. There was a sizable closet with plenty of hangers on either side... More

This was our second time at this hotel and it was the highlight of our trip. You can't get a better view of the sea from any hotel. Sestri Levante is an undiscovered gem and this hotel, the palace. our room was a bit small but the patio was like a second room. We spent little time in the room... More

I returned to this wonderful hotel in August 2013 and stayed 4 days. The rooms are somewhat small but quite clean and comfortable. Internet is free and at speed of DSL. The staff are helpful, polite, caring and almost like your family. The restaurant has one of the best food selections I have had. The view is breathtaking. There is... More

Spent 1 night in this hotel. Excellent views on city and sea, nice staff, bit overpriced. Very romantic stay. Located on the top ofthe hill. Better to book before. Full on weekends. We were lucky to get last room for one night

My wife and I stayed at the Vis a Vis Hotel May 5th thru May 12th of this year. We were part of tour group visiting the Italian Riviera, and we thought the tour company made an excellent choice for a hotel. We arrived at the hotel late on a rainy Sunday afternoon totally exhausted from the flights to Italy.... More

This was my second stay within 3 weeks and have booked again for next month as it is such a beautiful hotel with utterly charming receptionists and restaurant and pool staff who cannot do enough for you. This is in addition to it being one of the most beautiful locations for a hotel anywhere. It's easy to get to (5mins... More

Recently spent three glorious days and nights in this stunning hotel. The views from our bedroom and the restaurant make you not want to leave the hotel. The pool was fantastic as was the service from a very attentive Maitre D. Would definately recommend this hotel to anyone visiting nearby Cinque Terre or Portofino.

The view from the roof garden and the swimming pool are fantastic...looking at the Silence Bay (Baia del Silenzio). Simply stunning. And don't forget to eat at Portobello, that is run by the same family of the hotel!
