Located in Sestri Levante this hotel is halfway between Portofino and Cinque Terre. This hotel is truly grand, elegant, and yet affordable. Our rooms were large with vaulted ceilings, king size beds and large Modern baths. The views from our rooms overlooking the Bay of Silence were magnificent. The included breakfast buffet was extensive and located in a room with...

This short stay of one night was beyond all expectations: the location can't be more special: a castle on top of a hill on a peninsula overlooking the sea and a beautiful quiet park (with an old church and ancient ruins!). A lift takes you to the sea walk and in two minutes you are in the center of town...

We stayed in this hotel for our daughters wedding. Cannot put into words how fantastic a day it was. Just fairytale stuff. Hotel is old with lots of character. It's beautiful, spotless and what a position it's in, looking over the sea. Rooms were spacious and have everything you could need. The grounds were spectacular and we wish we had...

This old girl sits atop a bluff overlooking the port. It is an easy shot by car to Santa Margherita, Repallo, and Porto Fino. They have a shuttle service to take guests to the train which will bring you to each of the Cinque Terra towns. Sure beats the hike among them. The Hotel is in good shape for its...

Sadly we only had one night here as it is a magnificent place. The views are wonderful and buildings regal. The dining was amazing - dinner and breakfast. Our only complaint was that our air con wasn't working and reception just said there was nothing they could do - no options or solutions.

I was there in April. Beautiful location, the staff went out of their way to take care of me. I was robbed on the train and had nothing left! The staff helped me to recover. They let me use the only outgoing phone line to call American Express, the embassy, and others. I cannot say enough about all their kindness...

This is a four star hotel that has it all, location, history and ambiance. The castle is located on a commanding hill in the middle of peninsula and the dates back to 1089. The building are masterfully preserved and renovations to the rooms are superb. The property boasts a private park, restaurant, parking, convention center, and a natural pool. There...

We stayed two nights in the hotel. After going through a case to access the elevator to reach the hotel, it is three buildings at the top of the peninsular overlooking Sestri Levante and the Med. The hotel is short walk from town with many many shops of high quality to visit. The rooms were generous in size with thick...
