I really loved this place, it was like a little apartment, very cozy, clean and great for couples (very romantic). You have to call them or email them in advance and let them know what it will be your arrival time to make sure someone is there for you. I emailed them until I got there and in 5 min someone was there to check in so it was not a big deal.
Actually I only can complimet this hotel,-personally to me, everything was perfect from the minute when i was taken and driven to hotel..Wonderful enviroment, relaxing atmosphere, briliant and helpful staff, luxorious dinners at reastaurant and richness of breakfest. I simply had the best possible time during my short vacation!
We initially booked for two nights and enjoyed it so much we stayed for five. The room and bathroom were boht large and well appointed with a large balcony that looked over the town. Levanto is the next stop from Cinque Terre with all the train connections etc. and the hotel is a 10 min walk from the train station. Our GPS got completely confused trying to find the hotel once we got to Levanto, but a quick phone call and the hotel staff gave us easy directions. The GPS was trying to use roads that are walking tracks - something up with the maps, even putting in the longitude and lattitude did not help.
Incredibly friendly and accommodating staff. We were blown away by how they bent over backwards to accommodate us, especially with the shuttle rides. Good alternative to staying in cinque terre...just a 6 minute train ride to Monterossa.
This was a little gem and the star of our month in Italy. We stayed in many hotels but this was the best and superb value for money. Big clean rooms most with balconies, small walk to train station so easy to do Cinque Terre, parking, wifi and pool with awesome "emotional shower" and sauna etc. Great after a long walk. Bfast was also superb - didn't want to leave! Only warning is that if you want to walk from Levanto to hotel you have to go up a few steps as up a little, but normally you are there for the walks and views anyway!
Very enjoyable 3 days spent in the region. Hotel was a little difficult to find even using GPS which was not quite accurate. However vista and views worth the effort. Breakfasts well catered for including gluten and dairy food intolerances. Best in this regard in the entire trip. Friendly front office staff. Walk to train downhill easy but return after full day a little tiring. Did not get chance tobtry out "emotional showers" in spa complex.
Great service and best cost / benefit.
Beautiful view. Lovely place with friendly family service. It's a little tricky to find.
Run by accounting, water not hot enough no tissues not 4 star 3.5
The location and the friendliness of the staff
The breakfast was excellent and the staff very helpful
Nice hotel, very peaceful, wonderful scenery. No restaurant!!! We had a room for us and one for our children so were charged double by the hotel transport when only one person was paying double the bill!!
Excellent hotel, very good service, nice and helpful staff, lovely terrace with fantastic view :-)
The two brothers from Rome and the gentleman from Rapallo at the desk couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. Rooms were very clean, breakfasts good and views and property very pleasing. It was great to have a garage as well. Mattress was rock hard.
Large comfortable room, friendly staff, good breakfast Quite a long way up the hill, but pleasant view when you get there.
View from hotel was spectacular. Staff was very friendly and helpful (we didn't speak the native language).
Fantastic location Wonderful views Very clean and spacious Friendly staff Shuttle service to local beach and town only five euro return No restuarant
the location was very central to city centre and train station The room was very small and no storage facility in the bathroom ie: shelving for toilet bags etc.
Privacy 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.
Hotel staff and services It would be nice to use the roof on the hotel for relaxing
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.
very modern facilities lack of wireless in rooms
Excellent staff, service and meals Nothing
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.
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
Great Location, Great staff who were very helpful. Breakfast was wonderful. The location is great for a visit to the Cinque Terre however the city of Levanto is nice as well to visit. Room was nice and had a privat balcony. I would definately stay here again.
The breakfasts were fantastic Everything was great don't change anything loved the wiFi free
Location was great. Walking distance to the train and about a block off the beach. I felt the staff wasn't exceptionally friendly. Our first impression was that the reception was rude. It was very expensive and we felt like we were a bother to them.
Clean large room, location is close to beach, hiking, and shopping, and breakfast is amazing! US rates online did not match hotel charges in Euros
Beautiful ocean view, great location, so close to train station, easy walking distance to all the sites in Montorusso Hotel staff spoke very little english, not friendly but not rude.
Hotel very friendly, superb location right on sea front. Rooms clean and comfortable and we loved our balcony and wonderful sea view
Location was great. Very clean. Comfortable bed. View overlooking sea.
We really liked the location of the hotel. We were out of the hustle and bustle but in walking distance to everything.
not much Poor value for the cost. Place is dark and depressing matching the attitude of the staff.front desk is unwelcoming. If you want to walk up a lot of stairs,choose this place, they have a lift,but you basically can't use it unless you are pregnant. This was the worst hotel of our otherwise delightful trip.
Execellent view and the food at the resturant was very good. The beds where extremely uncomfortable (Hard!)
The cottage was great and had a small kitchen with all the supplies to make meals for yourself. The restaurant at the top was very good and served a nice dinner and breakfast. The views were amazing! We packed small bags from our large suitcases to take down to the cottage as the stairs made it impossible to take heavy bags up or down.Don't let this deter this hotel it was worth the stay.
It was probably exactly what I expected. Be prepared for the steps! Do not try to lug all your bags down. We put what we needed for the night into a couple plastic bags and took those to the room. But the view is incredible and that is why we stayed there. Location was particularly good for backpackers, hikers and students traveling. This is not a place for anyone with mobility problems. The kitchen faucet did not work. Everything was very clean. Bathroom far better than I would have expected.
The views were outstanding!! Can't get any better than up on a cliff overlooking the sea. A totally unobstructed view! It was magnificent!! Very quiet and secluded. We stayed in one of the apartments on the property, and while spacious, it was down an incredibly long succession of steps! We are both in really good shape, but carrying our huge bags down, and then up, those steps was difficult to say the least. And they did not even offer to help, of course. The only staff member there at check in was a very disinterested woman. I never saw anyone in the restaurant. There were literally about 20 cats roaming the grounds. Couldn't get heater to work in room. Nobody around when we wanted to check out. Very, very difficult to find. I can't imagine finding this place in the dark when there is no one out to give directions.
The views from the terrace were exceptional. The good news ends here. The room itself was disgusting. The ceilings were low, the lighting was poor, there was no light, the shower was broken, the AC didn't work, and there was no terrace with a view as advertised.
The view The steps down
The view was spectacular. The breakfast was terrific. The free shuttle bus was very helpful.
The quiet after a busy day and the obliging staff, also the view from the balcony at the front of the room none to speak of
Room was spacious, bright and clean with an excellent view of the sea and coastline. Good shuttle service from town. My wife didn't care for the uphill walk from the town if we missed the shuttle.
The view over Montorosso and the bay is spectacular! The shuttle up and down the mountain side ran only once every hour. We had to keep an eye on the time, otherwise we might have to wait an hour at the hotel or an hour in town to catch the shuttle.
The hotel was very clean and a beautiful location, although we booked late and had a room without a view. If we would have been on the view side we would have enjoyed the stay much more. Overall this was very nice. The breakfast is good, the service is solid. The location isn't bad even though you need the shuttle to at least return from Monterossa, but you could walk down the hill if you are in between shuttle times. We were sorry not to have a view room, but the only challenge was finding it. It would have been helpful to know that this is located in the "new town" of Monterrosa, not the old. We drove down to the old town first which has no parking and no one to really help you. The "TI" is just a kiosk and doesn't provide any help.
Excellent location, for the price I would have expected a larger room with more updated features.
The location was spectacular and the hotel staff was very accomodating and helpful.
The location of this hotel is ideal. There is designated space on a private beach for convenience. Close walk to eating spots and is at the entrance of the Cinque terra trail going southeast. There is a complimentary shuttle from the train station to the hotel that we didnt know about until we reached the hotel via a long uphill trail. Please advise make use of the complimentary car service so you dont have to drag your bags up the steep hill. Our stay was lovely and wished we could stay longer!!
Hotel is located at excellent sea-view place. Staff have good hospitality.
Service outstanding, views incredible,access to the Cinque Terra park was perfect!
Quiet, beautiful views of beach and shoreline, convenient for walking to Monterossa Old Town area and for hiking Cinque Terre trail to Vernazza. Felt the meal charges were somewhat high for quality.
We found all the staff at the hotel to be extremely courteous, helpful, and pleasant-natured; we particularly enjoyed the restaurant staff. Our room was small but comfortable and very clean. The main reason we had chosen the hotel was the promise of phenomenal views-- and we were not disappointed (we had a double room with a sea view). We had a couple of evening meals at the hotel's restaurant, and both were scrumptious. When we arrived in Monterosso by train we had to wait half an hour for our pre-booked taxi to arrive to take us to the hotel. However, that wasn't the hotel's fault. We would have appreciated coffee/tea making facilities in our room. A better functioning hair dryer would be good. But these are all minor points. Overall we were thrilled with our stay at this hotel.
the staff was exceptional, and the location was spectacular.
The view of the sea and Monterosso was great. Very easy to hear the people in the next room.
Best location, superb views of the bay and ocean. Excellent restaurant. Relaxed atmosphere. Staff very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended - ask for sea view room No, we had a superior double room with a balcony. Superb views and the dining experience is probably the best in town.
Very good breakfast, helpful staff, Overlooking the railway line, Access road to parking is very steep and difficult,only suitable for small cars.
The building is beautiful, the personnel efficient and nice very small television with poor reception
A quiet and nice hotel to stay at. A very good breakfast makes a good start to the day
it is off the beaten path so it is quiet. you can hear the train but the noise is not bad. you can sit outside and read on nice lawn chairs. ocean is 2 blocks away. laundry facility one block away. quiet. a few blocks from the beach. walk up a short hill to get to the front door of the hotel, if you have heavy bags to carry it would be difficult. The hotel is being up dated. Some of the hotel is a 2 star not a 3 star. should be finished soon. Breakfast is good. Train station is walkable-about 4 blocks
It was a quiet hotel with a nice staff. The room and bath were a good size, the complimentary breakfast was very nice. It was set up on a hill in a garden setting with a fountain out front. The air conditioning was a bit weak, the first two evenings were very warm and it was uncomfortable sleeping. The tile floor in the bedroom was a bit dirty.
Picturesque site and location convenient to train station.
It was a very comfortable place to be
the breakfast was amazing and the servcie was excellent.
Access to the glorious cinque terra.
I found the staff very very helpful, the facilities were very modern and clean. The assortment for breakfast was fresh and plentiful. The walk up the hill from the gate.
The room was spacious and clean, the breakfast spread was tasty, and the location was wonderful. I would highly recommend staying here!
The hotel was fantastic - our room was clean and air-conditioned, staff was very nice and accommodating and breakfast was awesome! The hotel is in the city center, but is a bit hard to find. Other than that no problems whatsoever
Nice short drive to Levanto. Next to hotel is an excellent restaurant.
Lovely location beside a running stream. Fresh air and great base for Cinque Terre holiday. Room had a musty, moldy smell from bathroom which we mentioned to staff for future travellers.
Quiet, peaceful location, not far from the sea. Excellent adjoining restaurant with multilingual maitre d'. The hotel name could be displayed more visibly from the road. We went straight past it and had to ask 3 times before we eventually found it.
The owners and staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms are immaculately fitted out and prepared, the breakfast is great, there is a free shuttle to and from Levanto each day to the rail or boat terminus(you can also buy your Cinque Terre Pass at the hotel to avoid the crowds at the railway station). Free car parking on site. The associated restaurant next door serves perfect Italian food and wine with great service (and menu advice) at reasonable prices. One of the best experiences of our Italian holiday.
We had a "junior suite" which was large, well designed interior with a terrace overlooking the mountains. The facillities are excellent and sometimes need explination: so hypermodern (minimum and maximum roomtemperature are computercontrolled from frontdesk, in the room is the manual thermostate).The restaurant is close by, so you can fully enjoy the marvellous wine collection. We suggested to the owner to put noice absorbers under the chairs because of the beautifully tiled floors. It will improve the comfort.
A very nice and new hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. Around 10-15mins drive to train station for visiting Cinque Terre is OK for visitors travelling with cars.
the design, attentiveness of the owners, quiet and pleasant place, about 4 km from levanto where there's a local train to cinque terre. only pay tv
The staff were fantastic (husband & wife team) and very welcoming. The hotel is new and the rooms are spacious and very chic - breakfast was nice and the restaurant next door (run by the husband and owned by the wife's father) was excellent. The hotel setting is very tranquil and peaceful yet close to Cinque Terre and Levanto.
the position in the forest very quiet and very comfortable room.
The staff were great . The restaurant was excellent, very good value for the money. Hotel is located 15 minutes from the main station to take the train to go to the 5 Terre which is very convenient (cheap taxi shuttle is organised as well)
The hotel room was spotless. It was very quiet at night which was great. It was a few streets away from the main street, which was nice tooIt was as expected - a very simple, clean, quiet room with its own bathroom. They provided towels.
Location, room size, cleanliness, comfort. Noisy - can hear between the walls.
Service was great. Accommodations for our late arrival was handled with ease. We had a beautiful balcony overlooking Vernazza.
