Perfect Home Base for Cinque Terre
Posted Oct 16, 2016
We loved this place!
First, Enrico is an amazing host. He speaks about six languages and works incredibly hard to help his guests with anything necessary to make the visit a success.
Second, you could not possibly have a better location for exploring the Cinque Terre. Riomaggiore is easy to reach by car or train, and once there you are right in the heart of the Cinque Terre with only very short hops to the other four villages quite easy by small local ferry or train. We met other travellers who booked hotels outside the Cinque Terre in resorts farther away, and at the end of a long day when they were waiting hours for long-haul ferries home they really regretted it. This hotel is perfectly located on the edge of Riomaggiore so you are part of the ancient village and an easy 5 minute walk to shops and excellent restaurants, but accessable by car and quiet at night.
And finally, the hotel is perfectly clean with all modern conveniences. We had rooms on the upper level that were exactly as advertised, including a spectacular ocean view from our terrace that looked exactly like the website. Heaven.
