“Great place - Good value for money in a nice location”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

I really enjoyed staying at this hotel, I found the room large, with all the essentials and with aircon and a balcony (and a safe). It's decor was a bit outdated but it didn't bother me.
Price was reasonable, especially for high season and for a double room with balcony to be used as a single room.
Breakfast buffet was adequate, cheese, ham, coffee and croissants. Nothing to die for but great value altogether.
Location is OK if you have a car, or if you are prepared to take a bus. The hotel is located half way between the small town of Cavi and pictoresque Sestri Levante, only a couple of shops are walking distance, the above towns are 3-4 kms away. Further east or west on the coast are a host of resort towns like Cinque Terre, Riva, Deiva, Chiavari, Rapallo, Portofino, so plenty to visit on day trips.
Parking is defniitely OK on weekdays, a little more problematic on weekends but it can be resolved by parking a bit further away. The hotel has a 10 euro/night garage if you are happy to pay that.
There is a large lobby and a terrace that are both very inviting, the beach is a couple of minutes walk away.
Staff were friendly (not so much the senior waiter at the restaurant) and professional. I had to cancel early and had no problems.
I will definitely return to this place as it meets my needs of a rather anonymous place with all the comforts in a beautiful location for a reasonable price.

Hotel discreto, una grande camera, un prezzo ragionevole, staff cordiale (un po' meno al ristorante), posizione OK per auto o autobus, bella terrazza e lobby. Tornero' certamente.

I stayed at the hotel with my friends to attend a wedding. I liked cleaniliness and tidiness of the hotel. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The nearest train station is 10eur away by taxi or by bus (that runs once an hour).

What I did not like is very poor noise isolation! Once someone is walking or talking - you'll hear it all! Bear in mind in case you're very sensitive to such things.

They asked us to pay EUR 115 per night. For that price you get proximity to the sea (although the beach is crowded and not very nice), below average breakfast and very outdated style of the rooms (like 70's or 80's at max). The room however had a nice balcony, aircon and a fridge which is always a plus during hot summer days.

The breakfast was below average, only one piece of normal pastry per person (the rest was all sweet) and disgusting machine coffee. The staff, on the other hand, very nice and helpful. Wi-fi internet was free, however only worked in areas adjacent to the reception.

I have seen a couple of hotels like this in Italy already. Italians do not seem to mind this style of hotels, the hotel was full and some of the guests even had a full board, however I would expect a little bit nicer hotel for such price.

Overall impression: Average, but barely.
