I want to start off by saying that the views are gorgeous! But first, you have to make it there. We knew ahead of time that we would not be able to park on-site, but we were unclear as to where to park. We figured that out. The hike to get to the place from the parking lot with all of your luggage is not easy. First, you go down cobblestone hills, then you go up and climb stairs, and then you have to climb a few flights of stairs inside before you are finally there. I am recovering from my fourth foot surgery (two on each foot) and was only three months out, so this was very hard for me. I knew there would be some climbing or walking but I didn't realize how hard it would be. I tried later to go down and explore the town, but made it down one flight of very steep, wide stairs and knew I couldn't go on. I was thankful for the nice patio and the views that I could enjoy from my room and also the deep jacuzzi, although that was also a challenge to get into as well! Overall, it was nice, but I don't recommend anyone with any medical issues to book this place.

Enrico didn't like that I gave push back about sending all of our sensitive personal info including passport photos over social media, so he canceled our reservation as we got on the train to Riomaggiore, leaving us without a place to stay.

Beautiful views, disappointing experience…the views are absolutely incredible. Unfortunately, the experience was not. We arrived and realized the key card did not work. Luckily, the housekeeper was still there and was able to let us into our room. She informed us that there would be workers painting outside our room the next day. This was the first time we learned of this work. The next morning, we woke up to loud construction and men on scaffolding right outside our window. Considering this was listed as a “luxury” stay, this was unacceptable. Our entire morning was interrupted and we had no privacy. When we reached out to management, we received a casual response. Overall, despite the view we would not recommend this location based on this experience.

Lovely but hilly town
Location in town was good. View was limited in our unit but was OK. Breakfast was wonderful & served to our room promptly at 8:30 each morning. Accommodations were a little tight but not at all uncomfortable. WiFi service was very good. Major inconvenience is lack of parking and need to manage luggage on steep streets and steps for long distances. Would not recommend this property to anyone with any mobility or cardiac issues.

Excellent location! However not at all organized and the hotel does not deserve all the credits for something that already exists (e.g. view). We asked for parking, they told us it's not available, fine. They told us to use public parking and walk 500m for the hotel ( high steps included). They told us not to worry as they have porter service and they gave us his number (didn't provide any help calling him). When we called him he said "Oh I don't work today" ( Friday!!!!) but i will come tomorrow. And when he came the next day he asked on spot for a fixed fee to help us. So no help for parking (only paid parking by driving on our own) , no arrangements for porter service and finally extra charge for his one way service fee. If bottom line is just a room, sorry but the price is really hight for no service at all.

Clean and new
Nice and clean room and premises. The only challenge is accessing it ... it’s a steep walk up of around 10 mins.
