This hotel made me think of recreational places rich, (bored?), housewives would go to over the summer from the US and other places in Europe to get away from their (bored?) lives at home. But all in a good way. The hotel was fantastic! The views amazing! We booked a room with a balcony and were a bit disappointed at...

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights on the occasion of a wedding. Overall, it was a very good experience. Location: located on the top of a hill above Camogli (approx. 10 minutes by car), this place is a little tricky to reach due to a steep, curvy and narrow street. But it's definitely worth it! Once you get...

This is one of my absolute favorite spots in the world. The location is perfect and if you book a sea view room you will wake up each morning with a stunning view over the Liguerian Sea towards Genoa. From the roof of the old casino building you have in fact a view of the bay towards Genoa and on...

This hotel was a stop off point for us. We had not prebooked and arrived by motorcycle and pulled up outside reception to unload our lugguage and promptly told quite rudely to move it by the barman. The setting of the hotel is impressive on the top of the hillside overlooking the beautiful coast line. We had a room with...

Kulm is a spectacular property with very memorable views. Our accommodations were excellent with a balcony where we could sit and take in the coastline. Really nice. Another positive surprise was their wonderful dining room; sitting in front of open French doors, a cool breeze, city lights, fantastic service and food to match. Paolo the head waiter helped us to...

Stayed in this hotel for 4 night on a business matter. The first 2 nights were OK but on the third night it was friday and the hotel hosted a big company of visitors in their restaurant. The guys got drunk and became awfully noisy. We needed to get up early in the morning and it was already midnight so...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for three nights and I have to say I found it to be rather disappointing. The receptionist we christened 'Signora No', which was actually being very polite as she was really quite unhelpful. It's a big hotel and feels very impersonal, plus the bar snacks etc are a total rip off. That said it...

The room was quite small and the furniture looked quite old (also in style). The bathroom on the contrary was spacious and comfortable. The main disappointment is the swimming pool which is only indoor. We were there on a sunny week end in May and we spent an afternoon in the sunbeds in the garden, very quiet and with great...

Great view. Very mediocre rooms. Poor service and advice. But the WORST of all: being in Italy (country know for its good coffee and cappuccino) and for breakfast getting yourself a coffee or cappuccino out of a MACHINE, just like on highway restaurant!!! Couldn't just believe it!! I lived for 9 years in Italy and love the coffee and food,...
