The hotel is small and simple with very helpful, friendly staff. I liked the building because of its thick walls and very high ceilings. The view out the window was beautiful with the sea in the far distance. We had the set dinner-menu twice, both times quite good, especially the tirami su.

We stayed here in early July 2012. At arrival (by car) we were given good information about how to visit Cinque Terre. I guess this is the main reason why people stay at this hotel. The hotel was easy to find when you arrive by car, and there were good parking facilities, although the exit from the property onto the... More

Our friends had stayed there last year and recommended it but the local train station, Riva Trigoso, and Italian trains can cause problems. We came by train from Aosta via Milan and, having been forewarned, caught a taxi from Sestri Levante for 13 Euro. This B&B was our first introduction to Italian B&Bs with their many stairs and the hassle... More

Great Italian little place with English speaking owner who can give tips on what to do, where to go. The location is perfect for exploring Cinque Terre. Rooms are big and clean

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay at Locanda del Borgo. The room was very large and spotlessly clean. Marcello welcomed us warmly and provided us with all the information that we needed for the area. Breakfast each day was excellent. We didn't have dinner in the dining room - but it looked lovely. We found Sestri Levante to be... More

It was a nice B&B place but we had difficulty getting there in the first place. It's close to a local train station (forgot the name), but not the major Sestri Levante stop. We got lost and thanks to the staff of a restaurant near the main train station, we managed to reach the B&B owner by phone and he... More

Thanks for your review Wendy, and I hope that you have a good trip to Venice! I use this occasion to clarify the train directions to us and to the Cinque Terre national park. Sestri Levante has two train station: the “central main” for the Express/Intercity trains and the “Riva Trigoso” station for the local trains on the Cinque Terre... More

Barbara and Marcello treated us like one of the family. They went above and beyond for us. Locanda del Borgo is located a short walk from the train station that takes you to the Chinque Terre, Santa Margherita Liqure and Portofino. A great location. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. So were the baths. The best part of the... More

We did not manage to find the time to write a review but have been meaning to for the last 6 months, having seen the latest review we now feel the need to defend this hotel. This is small and very family run but this simply adds to the appeal. The management (Marcello and Barbara) really make this hotel and... More

We booked our stay here well in advance. We found the websites and advertising very misleading. There was nowhere to eat locally, so any meals required were accessible only by car. The room we were shown was sparse, the bed was draped with a net curtain that was covered in dust! At reception we were met by a very dis-interested... More

This is an unusual review in my opinion. As you wrote, “We did not end up staying at the property”. You haven’t spent the night here, but I want to answer, never mind. About the restaurant: we offer our regional menu of the day. If you don't like it, from this season we offer also a bar service with some... More
