Due Gemelli
Ranked #9 of 11 Hotels in Riomaggiore
Reviewed May 23, 2013

The rooms had a nice view but had a very strong disinfectant smell that was in the bedding and could not be gotten rid of. I think I was allergic to the strong smell and got a terrible headache and was unable to sleep.

We didn’t want to stay in one of the 5 towns so this was the perfect place close by. You need to have a car as this is 5 minutes’ drive from Riomaggiore. (I never saw the bus even there is one)

The good thing about this place was our terrace room (that was as big as the room itself) with just amazing view. The room is no luxury accommodation but clean and simple. No fridge in the room though. The staff was amazingly helpful and ready to do whatever you asked them for.

Only negative thing about the terrace was the neighbors next door, coming in very late at night and the walls are paper thin and they slam doors and stayed outside on the terrace drinking and chatting until late night.

Restaurant is very good and you have the same amazing view from there. We would defiantly come back here, absolutely recommend it.

Our family had a great stay at Due Gemelli. The staff treated us like family and you have an amazing view of the Mediterranean Sea. The restaurant was excellent as well. It's a perfect spot to explore Cinque Terre.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room with a terrace.

If you are travelling with a car then this is an amazing place to stay. Lots of parking. It is situated on top off the cliff a few kilometres from Riomaggiore. Our room was great, free wifi, some English channels on the tv. But the best part was having a terrace in front of our room looking straight out to sea. We bought a bottle of wine from the restaurant and had a picnic on our terrace as the sun set. Magic. The next day it started to rain and a storm developed by the afternoon. It was the best possible place for this to happen. I sat in the restaurant of the hotel with a glass of wine and caught up with emails and postcards to friends and family and was entertained by the uninterrupted sight of the storm over the ocean. The staff here are friendly and very helpful and they put up with my pathetic attempts at speaking Italian. If you have a car and you are visiting Cinque Terre I highly recommend you stay here.

Stayed there for 3 nights, and loved it. Definitely need a car though since it is a good 5 km of windy roads from Riomaggiore. Staff super friendly and helpful, and the food is very good! Nice and quiet, with amazing views on the ocean. We recommend!

We stayed there for three nights in September. Since we had a car, so we decided to stay outside the town instead of fighting for parking. You can catch infrequent yet adequate bus to Riomaggiore, so it is not that inconvenient. Place is quiet and our room was at the top with a open balcony. Room was simple but very clean. View was spectacular! Breakfast was very nice and included in the price. After seeing the congestion at Reiomaggiore, we were glad we picked this place. Staff was very friendly and provided good information around the area. The last bus leaving Riomaggiore is 7:45pm, so schedule your visit accordingly.

We also find a nice day hiking trail down to the ocean. This is not for the unfit, though. You will need steady shoes. The trail starts at the nearby Borgo di Campi (would not recommend that hotel to those who carries a lot luggage), follow the trail, passing many vineyards and camps, and eventually winds almost vertically down to the ocean. When you get to the ocean, there are several swimming holes with great ocean view and no one bothers you. Great experience!. It took us 45min to go down and 1hr to get back. Primitive trail so be extremely careful! If you like hiking and have the time, put on your swimming suit and you will enjoy the hike and the swim!

If you want to stay in the heart of one of the cities, this hotel is not for you. It's located outside of the main cities. This hotel worked for us. We drove to town and needed a place to park our car, which they provided. We were able to easily drive to each of the Cinque Terre cities.
The lobby of the hotel has been upgraded. The staff is friendly and there is a restaurant on-site. The view is phenomenal. We got wine from the restaurant and stared at the ocean. The problem is the room. It is clean, but very much looks like a Motel 6 room.

Room Tip: I'm not sure if all of the rooms had the view we did, so make sure to ask for a room with a view...
