Hotel Villa Argentina dominates the antique village of Riomaggiore .The small e quaint hotel has most its room heated with view of the sea and small sunny terrace ,all of which included private satellite TV, safe and ceiling fans.

Receptionist who wears glasses too arrogant. after 6 hours of travel she treated me very badly because I said I didn't have a sign indicating the hotel. the sign hidden behind an overgrown wall. reception closes 8 PM. the rooms you can hear people screaming and bed walking. remembering that the reception is closed at 8PM. who to complain to? poor coffee, cake and iced fruit, bread of just one kind. hot orange juice car space 25 euros, car on the street with no private area and no sign saying it belongs to the hotel. we arrived one day and the place was occupied. who to complain ???? reception closes at 8 PM place so depressing that I didn't even take a picture

After much thought, we chose Hotel Villa Argentina and we were not disappointed. It is everything you read on their website and more. The friendly staff including Guilia, Lucca and Janelle welcomed us like family. Before booking we confirmed our room (#3) had a balcony overlooking the village and a beautiful panoramic view it is. The first couple days the breeze was cool enough but after that, the quiet, efficient A/C unit was a blessing on the warmer days. WiFi was adequate but occasionally fluctuated. The breakfast buffet is very good and features more than enough offerings to get the day started with boiled eggs, sliced meats and cheeses, quiche, pastries, breads, cereals, fresh cut and whole fruits. Cappuccinos and café au laits are awesome. Fruit juice was nice but missed having orange juice. Once you arrive, there’s no need to use the car so it is left in a private garage 5 minutes walk from the hotel for 25E/night. Another 5 minute walk to the public elevator drops you out about midway into the village saving a lot of steps down from and back up to the hotel. If you’re looking for a very nice hotel with balcony overlooking the village, I highly recommend Hotel Villa Argentina.

We travel in October to avoid the crowd in high season. But still This hotel is too expensive for its quality. We arrived at noon (very early) and were assigned the worst room on top floor facing the cliff, damp and dark. No elevator, we have to walk many steps every time. The room is so small that it is almost impossible to move around. The mattress is the cheapest mattress I have ever slept on. I have terrible hip and back pain the next morning. We have to leave the next day because we can’t sleep in this room anymore . ( we booked for 2 nights) they charged us for half rate for the cancellation fee. For anyone who wants to travel to cinque terre, my advise is to stay at hotel in the nearest town and take train to visit the terre it will be cheaper and easier. ( we paid 25 euro for the parking just to stay at this hotel on top of euro 150 a night for the room). Not worth it.

My sister & I arrived at the hotel mid afternoon & got the best service we've had since holidaying in different parts if Italy. The friendly, welcoming staff carried our cases into the hotel foyer & within minutes offered us a cold drink of either water or beer. I noticed they did packed lunches & asked if they could make a few sandwiches as we hadn't eaten since breakfast. Our bags were carried down the steps to the spacious apartment & a short time later delicious sandwiches, fruit, sweet slice & drinks arrived on a tray. We have a lovely balcony with a great view & even an outdoor clothes line. Great location to down town and the friendliest staff ever this hotel is fantastic 😊

I stayed at the Villa Argentina in October 2018 for two nights. I almost fainted going up hill with my suitcase but the view from there was magnificent. Check in was quick and we were even offered some snacks. The room was OK. everything we needed and the breakfast was very good. my daughter forgot her coat and the staff were super helpful and assisted us in having it shipped to my home country.

We highly recommend this hotel. Our family of 4 stayed here in July. The hotel has basic facilities (similar to most hotels in the area), but is fairly spacious and clean and has the best views in Riomaggiore! It was lovely sitting on the balcony of our room drinking local wine in the evening. The hotel is located at the top of the town (a huge hill) so is probably not ideal if you cannot manage a hill or if you have a lot of luggage. There is a lift from the centre of town but we still had to walk up several flights of stairs to our room. Hill aside, it wasn’t too far to walk to the restaurant strip or train station. The pic here is the view from our room.

Without a doubt the best thing about this hotel is the fantastic views down over the village of Riomaggiore and out to the sea and the excellent sunsets. But be aware, the standard rooms don’t have this view and are tucked back in the hotel without much natural light. There is about 15 euros a night difference in the two types of room and I know what I’d prefer. The ones with sea views have a lovely little balcony where you can also get your washing dry if you so desire. The next best thing is Janelfi, one of the staff, who is the loveliest, most helpful person who made my stay really special. She is the epitome of good service and sorted several issues for me with courtesy and care. Breakfast is a pretty comprehensive spread with lots of choices - continental but much to choose from. It is served from 8-10 - late by my standards but typical in Italy. The rooms are not big and the bathrooms, to be fair, are tiny. Getting into the shower is a bit of a squeeze and there’s not much room to bend down to pick up your shampoo or similar. But, in my experience they are clean and that’s important. There’s a bidet in the bathrooms. Wifi is free and excellent - fast and stable. I came by train so had to walk up from the station but the public elevator outside the church makes this easier, cutting about half the climb and the time to the hotel. As far as I can see this is highest hotel on the hill. If you’re in a car, there’s parking outside. Thanks to the team.

We have just finished a 3 night stay at Villa Argentina. The location is excellent, although you do finish on a hill unless you take the lift from the church. Staff here at the hotel are excellent and obliging. Where it falls down is in the rooms. I can live with the fact they are small, but it is very noisy. By that I meant, if you are anywhere below the top floor, you will hear, every ablution, every flush, every dropped item, every conversation. For this reason we would not return. I agree with a previous reviewer about the breakfasts, the offering is only adequate and do not match the promotional photos. Lastly if you expect a room with a view, then make sure you or your agent specifies it, otherwise you will be facing the hill side like us. If you are a large person, good luck having a shower.

We recently stayed at one of the apartments they offer. The apartment was a nice size but the bathroom needed some work. It had some black mold in the shower and the shower curtain needed to be changed 5 visits before us...yuk! The rooms where cleaning otherwise. Be ready to take a hike up the hill to the front desk. There is a local city shuttle that can take you up...may be worth waiting for it. The breakfast was not as amazing as everyone says. It was unimpressive and we ended up opting to just get breakfast in town for the week. 4 things I ask management to improve on... scrub the showers and remove mold, change shower curtain after each customer, provide cleaning service at least every other day, and offer assistance with luggage. The stairs are steep and if I want young I'd definitely have issues trying to carry my luggage up and down that. If those 4 things are fixed then I'd stay again.
