The room, the bed, the bathroom were great. The service, the dinners, the friendly owners, who were very helpful with advice and flexible re. checking out time. A very charming village with good restaurants is three minutes away. Location is very central to everything, and two minutes from the motorway entrance. We drove to Levanto (15 min.) and left the...

we did check in very last minute early evening. The owners accommodated us the best they could for late arrivals, but it was rather chaotic. The rooms are basic and dated but very comfortable and clean. Easy to find off the main highway and restaurant on site (we were too late unfortunately) Lovely garden and seating area A little over...

This is a family run hotel with friendly welcoming staff. We were in 'bungalow' accommodation at the rear of the hotel building. This appears to be new and is well appointed and clean. The only reservations being that 1. soundproofing between the units is none existent and Italian TV first hand is not for the weak hearted, through a wall... More

Local B&B with excellent people. Not many though, but attitude is always great. Installations are basic but clean, Wifi provided at no extra cost. Located very close to Cinque Terre towns and only 5 minutes from train station to Rio Maggiore.

We were here for 2 nights as a base for a full day of exploring Cinque Terre. (It's about 20 minutes away). Hotel is new and very clean. The couple who own it are lovely and friendly people who were very helpful and welcoming. They speak English and various other languages too I believe.

We knew we'd be getting into the Cinque Terre area at night. We didn't want to try to find parking or a hotel on the dark winding roads. Luckily, I found the Sonno d'Autore online and booked it. It's right off the A-12 and easy to find. We parked our car and went into the restaurant/hotel reception. We found it... More

We booked this hotel when we couldn't find a hotel at short notice in Cinque Terre that we believed we would be happy staying at. It turned out to be a very good choice: the rooms were new, spotlessly clean and had a very fresh feel. The bed was extremely comfortable. The room and bathroom were nicely furnished. There was...

We visited hotel "Sonno d'Autore" literally "by accident". We had a car accident on our way from Genova to Tuscany and our car was towed away to the mechanic in Borghetto Vara. My mobile phone did not work, we did not speak a word in Italian and we were far away from our destination. Luckily we found this charming, small... More
