Having stayed in Italian hotels on and off for over 30years, this little gem was a real find! From the position of the hotel, right opposite it's own private beach, to the professionalism of the staff, even the rather lugubrious looking manager ordered a member of his staff to stand outside the hotel and keep a parking place free for...

We used Hotel Celeste as a cheap base to explore Sestri Levante and it's surrounding scenery. The hotel itself was very clean and very well looked after, if slightly dated in areas. The bar and restaurant area at the front of the hotel has great views over the (private) beach and the breakfast/food was very tasty. Very close to the... More

Good base for a walking holiday in Cinque Terre. On seafront, close to all local amenities and train station. Very friendly staff. Good food and good wine, reasonably priced. Bathroom quite cramped but well equipped

We drove from our daughter's home in southern France (Mouans-Sartoux) with the idea of spending two-three days visiting the Cinque Terre, the renowned five villages on Italy's Ligurian coast. Christine suggested that we not stay in one of the villages but in nearby Sestri Levante instead. We went first-class: two top floor rooms for six people with a view of... More

Stayed at this small hotel as part of a walking group. Very friendly and helpful staff. Food is good and location is ideal for exploring the area and the cinque terre. Rooms are rather basic and for some inexplicable reason, the single members off our group were given double beds and couples ended up with very narrow single beds. Not... More

An excellent location across from the beach and close to the town centre. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast first class. The room was large and clean. On our last night when we were out the staff came to clean our room and turn down the bed. What a pleasant surprise! Excellent service.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel in Sestri Levante for one week as members of a walking group. Great area for trekking and the hotel is very popular with walking organisations. We found the accomodation to be clean and comfortable, everything that we need was supplied. The owner and all the staff were very friendly and most helpful,... More

I've just got home from a week in Sestri, staying at the Celeste as part of an organised walking group, for which the hotel seems very popular. It faces the sea, and is only a few minutes' walk from the town centre. We stayed on a half board basis. Breakfast is buffet style, with a good choice, but very little... More

The place is charming and welcoming. I would recommend it without any doubt. The staff is very nice, the location is great, although not exactly in the center but very close. Great view on the sea from the rooms. The hotel has its private beach included in the price, very well maintained and equipped. Rooms are clean and nice. A... More
