The rooms are clean and well kept and comfortable. There is free parking available, but in summer there may not be enough space for all guests with cars. Breakfast was good; dependable wifi in the room and a good TV. The reception employees were friendly and helpful and the location is very convenient. The only problem was water from the... More

We stayed for one night during our recent vacation to Italy. Great service. Staff took good care of us from the moment we arrived. The hotel's carpark was full, but they found a nearby site. The family's hospitality is the strenght of the hotel. Room was clean and we had a good night sleep. Breakfast is not impressive, but the... More

Dear Mr. Joseph We are very happy that you have enjoyed our hospitality and the quality - price ratio. We agree with you that our garage can, sometimes, be difficult for cars more voluminous, but we are always available to help when maneuvering or even park the car ourselves. We take note of your suggestion to improve the wi fi... More

I am on my motorbike heading back from Rome to the UK. Wanted to stop at a seaside town before Vence tomorrow.

Rooms were from a good size, minibar included, we got rooms with view to the sea, very nice staff. Breakfast very simple, although you could order scrambled eggs, etc. Bed was very hard and internet very poor. Location very good, 100 meters from the sea. Overall a place I would come back for a short stay (3-4 days)

Dear Customer, Thank you for your compliments to our rooms for our staff and location. With regard to the breakfast will be even easier, but in our opinion well assorted: hot and cold drinks, homemade cakes, jams, local and fair trade products, ham and cheese, chocolate, honey, biscuits etc and - as you said - you can also order eggs...

Friendly staff, who tried their best to provide information about the town of Varazze. Restaurant menu was translated into English. Room was spacious, quiet and comfortable with proper air-conditioning. Seaside town of Varazze is beautiful with plenty beaches and opportunity for walking along the coast.
