“Like sleeping inside a drum”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012

At first, we liked il Giglio -- it's clean, the manager was pleasant and helpful, the location off the main street seemed a plus. But later that night, we had second thoughts. The building is so resonant that every movement, conversation, or door-closing reverberated through our room. We listened to a lengthy German cell phone conversation in a nearby room, then were awakened by a group returning from late-night revelries, and were repeatedly startled by motorcycles, scooters, cars, and trucks climbing the hill outside. In the morning we were treated to the worst coffee we had in Italy, surely a crime in the land of wonderful cappuccinos.
I hate writing critical reviews, especially of a hotel under new management. But I don't see how they can correct the noise issue and it's a real problem, or was for us. Too bad -- it was a lousy end to a lovely time in Lerici and San Terenzo.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

While the rooms are quite plain and simple, the beauty of having our own balcony was such a bonus! We sat out in the evening, enjoying a bottle of wine, listening to the sounds of birds and the few people walking up the street.

We were only a few hundred meters from the ocean, along with shopping, restaurants and the best gelatto ever! (Try the gelatto sandwich at the place right on the corner!) We loved everything about the hotel and San Terenzo.

One note: most of the staff speak no English. However, the young owner's English is wonderful.

Room Tip: Ask for room #2. It has a big corner balcony. It does sleep 3, if you want.
