“Lovely Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Just returned from a 3 night stay at this lovely little hotel.
We chose it primarily as a base for exploring the Cinque terre and it is ideal for this.
Quite close to the railway station and well sign posted too. The hotel has recently been refurbished and everything looks new and very stylish. We were in room 204 and this had a balcony which was nice to sit out on. The room itself was fairly compact and the bed was quite hard, but we slept well. The air con worked well, as did the free wi-fi,there's a mini bar, very stylish shower room, the only negative would be the walls are not thick and we could here people talking in the next room.
The hotel is very clean and we found the staff to be all very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good. Levanto itself is a lovely small town and we found a couple of very good restaurants so didn't eat in the hotel, so can't comment on that. All in all a very good stay. We hope to return next year and wouldn't have any hesitation in recommending the Hotel Carla.

Lovely stay for a week in this hotel. Very modern and lovely balcony to use in sun. Comfortable beds and superb food at breakfast. Optional evening meals were excellent, especially if you have a large appetite. The staff were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. We would stay there again in that beautiful area.

Easy walking distance to the station and the town. Couldn't fault it.

Clean modern rooms with all amenities which worked ? Recently refurbished. Staff friendly, good breakfast and reasonable price through booking.com. Can't fault it. Also station short walk away? Good/excellent what more can I say
There was also ah goood trattoria in town I must say wring 200 characters is too long. Idon't know when I will be finished as I keep trying but apparently need to type some so I hope this will be enough soon as I can't think of anything else to say good good good not only good but excellent. I think I will write reviews for booking.com in future I feel sure I must have written 2000 characters by now. If not I think I will abort the report altogether although I do want to say what a nice hotel this was

We visited the Cinque Terre area of Italy in May and found Hotel Carla and Levanto to be a very satisfactory base for our three day stay. The hotel is on the edge of the retail area of town so an easy walk to stores/restaurants as well as an easy walk in the opposite direction through the neighborhood to reach the train station. (The station has a separate window with English speaking staff for the purchase of Cinque Terre tickets.) The front desk was always very friendly and helpful. We really appreciated their suggestion to visit Lucca on our "free" day. They guided us through each step of the trains we would need to get there as well as printing off the schedules. The breakfast was excellent with a nice selection and kept spotless - as everything seems to be - and stocked by two very attentive staff members. Even the housekeeper for our floor seemed to be ever present as well as ever pleasant. Hotel Carla is just a very relaxed, friendly boutique type hotel.

We stayed in this hotel in late June 2012. We found it on Trip Advisor, and are just so pleased with going with this choice. Valentina (receptionist/host) was exceptional at her job. She was not only good at her job, but so full on good advice on the area. My friend and I were so please with everything. The room, the breakfast, staff - everything. I could go on and on, but really go and find out for yourself. We would go back there today if we could. Levanto is just such a beautiful part of Cinque Terre. Thanks so much to Valentina and the whole of the staff. We hope to see you again. Flora and Vicki, Melbourne, Australia

We recently stayed at this hotel in May, 2012. We had trouble connecting to make reservations, based on Rick Steves' recommendations, due to the continued damage throughout the various towns in Cinque Terre. Thankfully, we found Hotel Carla on Trip Advisor. What a charming, modern and gracious hotel this is and the front desk staff were exceptional. They have a nice bar and outdoor terrace to sit and enjoy a Campari or a glass of wine. The rooms are nice and roomy. The beachfront is a close walk, good location and short walk to the train station. I would highly recommend this hotel. Although no structure parking, the hotel makes accommodations for your car, plus you really don't need it until you leave. Nice dining room, provides breakfast and if you want to also have dinner, you can make your reservation in the morning.

The Piazza also serves great burgers (if seeking something else), and we managed to hit a weekend market in the Levanto Piazza that had great items to add to the suitcase!!!

Again, not sure why the beds in Italy are all uncomfortable. No reflection on Hotel Carla - it just seemed to be our experience in all the hotels we stayed..........

Room Tip: Highly recommend a GPS system to drive around Italy......

We recently stayed at the Hotel Carla for three nights while visiting the Cinque Terre. From the moment we arrived, we had exceptional service. A lovely boutique hotel. They went out of their way to make sure we had a wonderful stay. We had a delicious dinner in their dinning room, the room was clean and well organized. Small but efficient....Very nice bath room. Enjoyed drinks in the afternoon in the bar. A computer was also available for the guests. The hotel is within walking distance to the train and the central part of the town. We did not have to get in the car the entire time we were there. We also enjoyed Levanto; they have a lovely beach and nice parks. I would highly recommend.
