“Excellent B&B in Riomaggiore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2011

Excellent position not too far up the hill which is good if you have a lot of luggage. The room was clean and had everything we needed. We had a room which overlooked the street which was really lovely. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was good. Riomaggiore is quieter than some of the other towns and I highly recommend staying here. Its very easy to catch the train and visit the other towns. There are also some very nice restaurants very close to Hotel Zorza.

As mentioned by others the location is a big plus. It is very close to the train station, the marina and the Via Dell 'Amore. We stayed in a very comfortable 1 bedroom apartment with a big patio overlooking the town. One big advantage for those who drive into town as we did is that there is parking at the top of the hill, Tell the people at the gate that you are staying at the hotel and they give you a 20 minute pass to drive the car down to drop off your baggage.

The staff is very attentive. Guido in particular had a great attitude and was extremely helpful. Breakfast is nicely done in a cute area on the ground floor.

The only down side is the noise in the evening from the Bar Centrale. We enjoy sleeping with the windows open but had to shut the windows in order to get any sleep.

Other than that we very much enjoyed our stay and definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: Ask for the 1 bedroom apartment with the patio.

I would highly recommend this hotel! The location was perfect, right down the tunnel from the train station, and not too far up the hill. Very modern amenities and great breakfast. Very friendly staff!

Great location in Riomaggiore. Old building with many stairs, no elevator. Staff helpful, room would be overpriced in any other location, but probably on par for Cinque Terre. Deserves the 2 star rating.

Room Tip: Price is negotiable in off or shoulder season.

We stayed two nights here. Very casual and great staff. This place has internet and close to several restaurants. The room was bigger than expected and it even had a refridgerator to store snacks or wine. Not too far from a gelato place up the street. Close to the train station and the staff help to carry your bags up! At night the office/breakfast room turns into a coffee/wine shop. Lovely place to escape everyday life.

We stayed two nights and found it very comfortable, much better than expected. The lay-out of the hotel (being in what appears to be an old apartment building?) is a bit unusual but our room was large and clean, the bathroom was clean and modern, the beds were comfortable, we had a cute little balcony and most importantly - air con! The breakfast was adequate, they have internet/PC facilities and it's very close to the tunnel which leads to the train station - about a 30 second walk to the tunnel from the hotel and then about a 2 minute walk through the tunnel to the station. Would definitely stay here again. We drove - if you drive, be sure to call ahead and arrange parking with the hotel. It was a bit confusing figuring out the parking situation - as you can't really drive in the town and there are a couple of barriers to navigate - but it was fine in the end.
P.S. The restaurant La Grotta, two doors down, is excellent.

My partner and I stayed here for two nights in July after Albergo Barbara (in Vernazza) unexpectedly canceled our reservation. Considering this was the only Cinque Terre hotel that still had vacancies I was a little concerned about how it would turn out. It was a bit expensive, but, altogether, was quite a lovely choice. The room was clean and spacious and very close to the train station. Also, the staff was very friendly and even watched our bags for us after we checked out so we could do some more hiking! Breakfast was delicious too! They do have free wi-fi, but because of the set up of the hotel (main office is in one building and the rooms are scattered about in other buildings) you may not be able to get access in your room. Riomaggiore was a nice town too, and not as congested with tourists as Vernazza or Monterosso.
