This is a gorgeous hotel, set high above the town of Sestri Levante, with wrap-around views of the ocean, hills, and town. The staff is fantastic and the service, amazing. However, because space is at a premium, our room was very small--a little too small for comfort. This is a problem along the Italian Riviera and in any hotel there.... More

Stayed here in May. The hotel is lovely and overlooks the Bay. My room was exceptionally clean and every day it was serviced. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I give Cinzia a huge thank you for all her help and the kindness on my visit. I recommend this hotel if you're in the region of Sestri Levante. It's... More

The views really are wonderful and the upstairs terrace, bar and pool are lovely. We had a suite, which had 2 balconies (morning and afternoon sun) and a bit more space. The furnishings were awful though (smelly yellow curtains and bed spreads) and the room stank of cigarettes when we first arrived. The bathroom was a bit small really. We... More

This hotel is wonderful! The views are breathtaking and the service and food excellent. There is a beautiful pool and terrace with a bar, a lovely lounge area and the dining room is fantastic. We could walk to the sea and the shops and train station.

My friend Stefania and I booked few days before with the idea to treat ourselves to a fabulous weekend on the riviera. The hotel features everything you wish. The view from the top terrace (swimming pool + restaurant) is breathtaking. The only thing that I think could be improved is the absence of a small private beach on the bay... More

My wife and I stayed here in May 2015. This hotel has 380 degree views of the Baia de Silencio and the Sea and the surrounding countryside. The staff is very cordial and goes out of their way to make sure you are 100% satisfied. This is a warm and inviting hotel that has its own elevator to the street... More

Vis a Vis boasts the most beautiful 360 degree panaramic view of this beautiful town between Portofino and Cinque Terra. Not only are the views superb, but the service efficient and friendly and the rooms clean and modern. I especially enjoyed the steam room, heat pool and jacuzzi which was a superb way to end off a hiking trail whic... More

The picture does not do the Vis-à-Vis Hotel justice. It is set high up above the town, with 360° views in the 5th floor restaurant and 4th floor bar of the Ligurian Sea, the red-tiled roofs, the pastel-colored houses, the abundant greenery. One accesses it from the Via del Chiusa, walking through what looks like a neon lit tunnel the... More
