Hotel Carla enjoys a peaceful position in the charming maratime village of Levanto, only 400 metres from the sea and within walking distance of the Levanto railway station which provides a quick link to the stunning Cinque Terre. It provides an excellent base for exploring this breathtaking location. Managed personally by the owners, this warm and friendly property features a fine air-conditioned restaurant, bar, banquet facilities, cosy reading lounge and complimentary wireless Internet access. Guestrooms are all comfortable and brightly-lit; most were fully refurbished in 2004 and many feature a private balcony.
Yes the Lady in reception was extremely helpful and pleasant
No Air Conditions is a disaster for any time in July / Aug. Also no parking available beside the hotel.
Hotel staff and services
It would be nice to use the roof on the hotel for relaxing
It was within a short walk to the train station which connected to Cinque Centa
The room was very small, there were no case facilities, the cramped conditions make only a very short stay possible. Parking is on the street, which although safe made unloading & loading a car very difficult as the street was on a hill with the hotel at the bottom
Very small (I'm talking about my shoulders touching the sides of the shower at all times no matter what direction I turned kind of small). Though it was a cheaper hotel for the area, it was simply too small to use well. Mainly just the bathroom though... The bedroom was small, but workable.
The breakfast was delicious and had good variety, particularly including fresh fruit, eggs and good coffee. Staff were friendly and helpful.
The rooms did not have any electrical sockets, which made it difficult to charge mobile phones, cameras etc. Secondly, the insulation is not particularly good so we had a lot of noise late at night due from the streets and nearby elevator.
