“Very nice room with bathroom”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

We were expecting to have the room in a small hotel but it was actually in a sort of private flat in a residencial building. However the room was big, very nice with a nice bathroom and a quality design and decoration.

Breakfast is all packed in the room so it's nothing fresh like bread or croissant, this was a bit disappointed for the price but knowing that it's so touristy, this the price to pay i'm afraid.

Gianni was very nice and welcoming. We loved it at the end, it's very close to the train station (1mn) so perfect for planning your arrival/departure.

The bed was excellent and we slept really well.

Affittacamere Ilda

We stayed here for two nights in early September while exploring the Cinque Terre. Gianni met us at the train station, is very friendly and was a great help the two nights we stayed. He lives in one of the neighbouring towns (can’t remember which) and is quick to respond to his emails if you have questions.

We chose this apartment based on the TA reviews, location and price. As mentioned the room is only a short walk uphill (~75m) from the train station and outside of the main part of Riomaggiore. It is only a few minutes walk through the tunnel to the main town. We had considered staying in La Spezia while exploring the Cinque Terre but glad we didn’t. It was nice having a short train / ferry ride back to our room after two hot days. We preferred this area just outside the main town as well.

The room itself is small, clean comes with a small fridge and had a view of the courtyard. The shower and bathroom are also small but not uncomfortable and the room was cleaned daily. Breakfast consisted of packaged pastries and a rather confusing in room coffee machine. The building was quiet and safe. We would gladly stay here again. The only disappointment was no wifi.

We were so sad to leave Riomaggiore and our beautiful room. We had the best time!! Ilda and Gianna could not have been better hosts. Our rooms were spotless, comfortable and we were treated daily with champagne or lovely biscuits. Our fridge was stocked with complimentary things like cheese, yoghurt, fresh milk, juice and water. The coffee machines in each room were also a treated. The bathroom was the best of our travels. The room is literally 100 metres from the train station with no stairs to get there. We will be back and will be booking the same room! Ilda even left us with a beautiful lemon soap from
Cinque Terre. I forgot to mention, we borrowed the hiking sticks available from the room and they were invaluable!

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights in July and thought it was fine. It is very close to the train station and is great value for your money. Our room was very clean and nice and the bathroom was big. If you don't mind simple and want a good value I would recommend this place.

I booked this B&B for two nights based on the TA reviews. However after staying there, I have to wonder if it is the same place.
The entrance to the building is dark with an unpleasant dank smell. Our room, while spotlessly clean, was very small. We didn't have the room with the terrace, but that was fine. Looking out, our only view was of the courtyard. It was full of tools, paint and generally a mess. I would think they would tidy it up so we had some sort of outlook. However my biggest disappointment was the bathroom. We were not supplied with towling but with pique cotton sheeting. I have never stayed in a place where we get baby sheets as towels. It was very difficult to get dry. Worst of all was the shower cubicle.It was so small, we had to shower with the door open, and we are not huge people. No way a large person would fit in there.m

We were asked for the money in cash after the first night, and no receipt was offered. I had to ask for it.

The packeted breakfast was disappointing. I saw at least two bakeries with fresh goods. Surely we could have been offered something fresh, after all it is meant to be a bed and breakfast! For all this We paid 80euros a night.

Cannot recommend.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for four night from March 18 through the 22. We chose this based on a combination of price (great value) and reading other reviews that it's right by the train station. Get off the train, roll your luggage, and 3 minutes later, you're there. A nice surprise was we had a bottle of wine in the room waiting for us!

As others had mentioned, the English is minimal on behalf of the owner but he is a very warm, friendly guy. (For instance, it was raining when we got there and he gave us some umbrellas.) Highly recommended!

My boyfriend and I stayed there for three nights to explore Cinque Terre. It's two minutes away from the train station which saves one from dragging and carrying luggage uphill or up any stairs. The room we stayed in was very nice and clean. Breakfast was nice with croissants and toast with Nutella, jam, fruit and coffee and tea facilities in the room. Nice bathroom with shower gel and towels. Totally recommend the place.
