I chose the hotel because of its location overlooking the Bay of Silence and the swimming pool, and we weren't disappointed. We had a good welcome at Reception, who continued to provide excellent service throughout the trip, including providing return travel to the railway station for our early departure. We had a room with a "garden view" on the 4th... More

I travelled down from Switzerland to stay for 3 nights before i had to return to Australia. This family run hotel is absolutely lovely. I couldn't recommend it highly enough. I had a Sea View room on level 3 and it was spectacular. Very Clean, beautifully furnished and equipped with everything you need. THE POOL are surrounding areas are divine... More

My husband, my youngest son and I spent 4 fabulous nights here. Our room was very spacious and clean with a fabulous balcony over looking the Baia del Silence, or Bay of Silence. It was recommended to us by our travel agent. A daily breakfast buffet was included in our room fee and had plenty of options for anyone's taste.... More

We spent 3 days and 2 nights here. We loved our stay. This was by far our best experience on a 22 day trip to Europe. The location was outstanding, right on the shore of the Mediterranean. The setting and view alone set this hotel apart! The service was outstanding. They took care of our needs from the moment we... More

This is a lovely place, on the gorgeous little Baia del Silenzio (“Bay of Silence”) of Sestri Levante – a quiet little bay with lovely colored buildings, small beaches, and a few boats. The hotel is run by very nice people, and service is excellent. They serve a great breakfast (fresh fruits, meats, cheese, fresh-squeezed orange juice, yogurts, cereals, delicious... More

The moment we arrived, we were served on-the-house cocktails to ease our day of travel. Our room was super clean and I still have the complimentary flip flops included in our room! Junior Suite included two FULL baths! Turn down and cleaning service was very prompt and perfect. We were staying during the Republic Day Holiday, so the beaches were... More

We loved this hotel even though I am not giving it the highest rating. The downgrade is due to the fact that the wifi did not work for us inside the hotel. We didn't mention this to the staff until we were leaving but I'm not sure what they could have done anyway. We also were disappointed with our "garden... More

We loved this hotel. It is a top notch family run hotel with excellent staff and service. We drove there in our classic Alfa convertible and was concerned about parking, however no need to be as It was driven to their private lock up garage a few minutes away by the owner of the hotel and returned whenever we needed...
