“Great place.”
Reviewed September 25, 2011

We stayed three nights at Locanda del Papa and really enjoyed our stay. David was a great host and the place has a lovely relaxed atmosphere.
Our room was pretty and a good size with a small but completely adequate bathroom with a good shower.
Breakfast was basic but tasty - fresh breads, with homemade jams with juice and good, fresh coffee.
The location would be difficuly if you don't have a car but is otherwise a lovely and peaceful retreat. The local tratoria (walking distance) is very good and means you can have a glass or two over dinner.
Would definately stay again.

Locanda del papa has a great location, it's a very nice house with an even better terrace, our bedroom was very nice, but we both agreed that David, the owner, is the factor that makes this place very very good. He's very positive, full of humor and warmth, gives great and helpful tips where to go and serves a very decent breakfast. Thank you David : you ARE a great host! The trattoria on 5 min. walk is excellent by the way.

We recently spent 2 enjoyable nights at Locanda del Papa, and had a great experience there with David. The breakfasts were the best we had in Italy (among the highlights were amazing fresh croissants and bread, with homemade fig jam that David's father made from the trees on their farm), and eating it on the terrace with a view of the surrounding green hills was a great way to start the day.

I have been to Cinque Terre twice now, the first time staying in Manarola, and the second time here. It was really nice to be able to retreat from the touristy craziness of the villages to this tranquil oasis, while still having easy access to all that Cinque Terre has to offer.

David was a great host, and our room was clean and comfortable. We would definitely recommend Locanda del Papa!

We have stayed here twice & both times exceeded our expectations. Amazing place, very good to explore Cinque Terre. David & Papa will go out of their way to really make you feel as part of their Italian family! Don't miss dinner if Papa is cooking!! 5* breakfast. Amazing house!

I can't say enough about our host David, just the nicest guy. His suggestions for dinner and hiking were spot on. His father's homemade pie alone is worth the visit, not to mention the homemade apple and kiwi marmalades at breakfast, and he even presses his own olive oil! It was nice to be served individually, rather than the standard stale buffet breakfasts we received elsewhere. The location is quiet and the atmosphere is homey. It's a great kick off spot for exploring Cinque Terre - there's a trail at the end of the driveway that we followed all the way to Monarola and were able to take the train to all of the towns and back to La Spezia.

We stayed in Locanda del Papa in April. David was great and responsive to our emails. The facilities/rooms are very basic but the host makes up for it with his attention and help. He went out of his way to help us when we had car issues.
