B&B Piazza Italia
Ranked #4 of 34 Sestri Levante B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

I had read all the glowing reviews but was still surprised at how lovely this B&B is. I think this may be the best accommodation I've ever stayed in, including some pricey ones. The furnishings /style/design/quality were beautiful-there was care and flair in every element. Alessandro was also a very helpful and kind but unobtrusive host. Location is also great and sestri levante is a great base for the area. You won't regret staying here!

Like many of the reviews you would read, this B&B run by Alessandro is nothing short of being beautifully furnished. He definitely has exquisite taste and has done is great job is providing sufficient amenities in his B&B. I never usually trust the pictures on the website, but I swear that the place looks exactly like the pictures on the website - no touch up!

Location: Slightly less than 200m walk from the train station. Extremely convenient if Sestri Levante is your base to sightsee all the other towns along the coast. It is near the main road, but the area is safe and quiet. It is less than 100m from the seaside boardwalk, so you can easily take a walk / run and have a great view. It is also not a far walk from the main town centre (about 5 mins) and you will be able to hit all the restaurants/cafes/shops.

Security: The B&B is housed in the basement of a building but no worries as there is direct access to the B&B and there are secured gates and grills around. Generally the area is safe despite being closely located to the train station.

Rooms: The room we had was tastefully done and smells nice. It is a nice size and we were able to manouvere around despite having 2 large suitcases in the room. There are windows to the room and you can hang dry some clothes when there is sun.

Amenities: Bathrobes, bedroom slippers, hairdryer, soap... were provided.

Food: Delish! Ale's mama bakes some pretty mean pastry and I normally help myself to 2 pieces. YUM! The kitchen is very well equipped with a fabulous coffee machine and you have more than 10 different types of teas to choose from. There is a great selection of cereals, fruits, yoghurt, etc and you can help yourself to anything in the well stocked refrigerator (including milk, juice, wine, etc).

Alessandro is a wonderful host. He speaks rather good English and was able to provide tips to places to visit (even when it rains). His Mama speaks only Italian but a very lovely lady.

We'll be back...

Stayed at Piazza Italia for 2 nights to see Cinque Terre, found the B&B easily using the map provided on the website (if you type the address into google it sends you somewhere else so definitely use the one provided by Alessandro!)

We were greeted and showed around the B&B, the breakfast is more than generous and Alessandro is a perfect host, giving us all the information we asked for, insisted on carrying our luggage and made us feel very welcome! Didn't spend a lot of time in Sestri Levante but we did go for dinner on the first night to a restaurant recommended by Alessandro and the food was fabulous! It's a fairly sleepy little place but in a perfect spot for visiting Cinque Terre, only 30 mins away by train and the train station is within walking distance as is the beach and nearby shops!

Would definitely go back, only wish we'd had longer to stay! The rooms were spotlessly clean and the coffee is excellent!! Alessandro has definitely earnt his high rating on TripAdvisor!

My boyfriend and I stayed at Piazza Italia last week and had such an amazing time!
First of all; Sestri Levante is a really cute little town with some really nice restaurants och wine bars, beautiful beaches and amazing surrounding sceneries.

Secondly; our stay at Piazza Italia made the stay in Sestri Levante even more memorable. The host Alessandro was such a warm and helpful person, with a great eye for interior design with a personal touch. The breakfasts that he served in the mornings were way beyond all expectations and belonged at a five star hotel.

Thank you Alessandro for your kindness and letting us stay in your “home”!

It totally exceeded our expectations! Sestri Levante itself is a heaven on earth - and while staying in this B&B you literaly get your own place there! Warmest welcoming from Alessandro, such a cosy and perfectly clean place, your own set of keys - so you are free to come and go when you like, kitchen with water, coffee (Lavazza!!!:)), and perfect breakfast to have! Anything you might need - Alessandro is there to help, so that was totally like having our own place in this beautiful seaside for 5 days! Don't forget to ask Alessandro for restaurant recomendations - he knows it all! The sea is around the corner! Just want to come back ASAP! So be carefull - you will be planning your next visit there even before you leave!
