We loved our visit at this B&B. Maddy was so helpful and gave us great advice on the area, hiking and things to do. The croissants waiting for us each morning were great incentive to wake up! I loved finding out what was inside them for filling. The room was very cool at night and had a beautiful breeze! The... More

Highly recommend il Boma in Cinque in Riomaggiore. More than simply a place to stay, the hosts went above and beyond to assist and make sure we were OK. Fantastic location with spacious rooms, private bathroom, fresh croissants every morning and even a laundromat next door. Couldn't be happier with the whole experience and wish we could have stayed longer!

We stayed 2 nights recently at il boma b&b! On arrival Maddy greeted us with fantastic information giving us a map and explaining all relevant sites/treks that we can do! The room was spacious and super clean. The breakfast was basic but perfect. Although our bathroom wasn't in our room this didn't bother us at all! Biggest plus with this... More

Ciao Ulla, Just read your review for the room you rented for your recent visit to the 5 Terre. As noted in all of our correspondence and noted by you in your review this room is not part of our B&B and therefore breakfast is not offered to clients staying there.

We have booked the cheapest room (70 €/night ) and we were surprised to find that our room was not in the b&b, it was a friend's room, so we feel more in an airbnb than in a B&B. It was clean and quiet but : - No breakfast - No wifi - No daily cleaning and the bed is... More

My wife and I stayed in this B&B after driving to Riomaggiore from Rome. The B&B provides limited parking for a small fee which was important for us. Our first impression of the B&B was from a relative of the owner who helped us locate the hotel and than helped me find (and negotiate!) the parking location. He was very... More

This B & B is 3 flights up, so if you are not up to that, don't book it! We had to pay in cash, which was a little inconvenient but not a big deal. When we arrived the owner launched into a long string of do's and don'ts which were largely lost on us as we were exhausted from... More

Clean, affordable accommodation with friendly, informative staff. The location was central but don't bring big or heavy luggage because you'll need to walk up 3 flights of stairs. Amazing coffee machine in room, with selection of snacks/biscuits; greatly appreciated the real milk instead of powdered fat substitute. The only negative was our particular room did not have an ensuite, so... More
