Beautiful location!! Restaurant was lovely. Restaurant staff was great. The woman checking us is was LESS than welcoming. I was not given a map, nor any information about how to get around or what was available. She pointed down the hill to where our room was and we were sent to find it. A little more direction would have been appreciated, even to help us find the silverware in the apartment. Hidden in a drawer as part of the table? Our room was comfortable, beautiful scenery. It was also very loud at night. There was something squeaking/scraping all night with the wind. The hotel is not close to town, however the bus stop is close. Free parking was a great deal for us. We enjoyed our time in this beautiful place. A few small changes in service could make this truly a wonderful place to be.

this is an incredible location...but that is all you get when you stay here. there is a shuttle bus that restricts the travel to town..5 times a day and it carries 17 passengers at a time...so if you are the 17th you need to wait 2 hrs for the next shuttle

Overall, view from hotel and location is magnificent; It's very excluded, quiet, but getting to and fro from town, if not travelling by car, can be a bit of a nightmare. The local bus is small and equipped to pick only 17 people. It runs about 8 times a day, at the intervals of about three hours approximately. On our first day, wanting to travel to town from the hotel, the bus arrived full, not being able to pick about ten to 12 people wanting to go to town from the hotel. A mere 4km to and fro town. Walking would lead you hating life.. Would take approximately two hours, whereas by bus it's about 15 minutes'ish. On this particular day however, some people who missed the bus had to be catching the train for the airport and couldn't wait three hours for the next bus. We all therefore went back to the hotel to complain and they took us all in their mini shuttle for free. So!? If you're staying here, I would recommend getting to and around by car. We were lucky with the bus in the consecutive days, being able to get on from the hotel's pick-up point. In other news, the hotel is like a bungalow, and the rooms are like single semi-detached houses, 200 steps down the reception. great view!, however, what we missed a lot is wifi. There is no wifi in any of the rooms. To get wifi, I believe it was 5 euros for 24 hours or two days, but could be used around the reception and bar area. it uses a username and code given at reception when you purchase. however, it only allows one device to access it at a time.. meaning, if you have a login for the wifi, you can't connect multiple devices to it using the login at the same time. One person uses it, once finished, logs out, and the other person has to wait about 5 to 10 mins to then be able to use the wifi. it was unreliable. we paid 10 euros for an internet connection for our stay of four nights. Having paid for this, we later regretted it as, upon having a full day's out touring or trekking, we didn't fancy sitt

The only reason I did not rate the overall stay as 10 is that there was a very bad smell in the (very basic) bathroom. I don't mind basic at all but they have to fix that sewage problem. I was also disappointed that on a Monday their restaurant was closed, and I was counting on having dinner there.

We travelled here in May 2013. Staff, location, and views are spectacular. I have to qualify this review however: I am not a picky traveller, and if the weather had been spectacular (as it normally is), I could have easily overlooked some of the disappointments. However, due to the fact that it rained the whole time, our cozy room became too small very fast, and the mildew/septic smell from the washroom was very disappointing. I cant comment on all the rooms, and like I said, if it had been sunny and +30C I probably would've remembered it differently. I will definitely give this hotel another chance next time I return, though.

This was our first time at Inn Il Borgo di Campi but it certainly won't be our last. We fell in love with the quaint place, the gorgeous views of the sea and the gardens. Wonderful place to restore and rejuvenate. Delicious meals at the restaurant and they were so welcoming, even when we came in very late at night.So lovely we had a hard time leaving to go explore the Cinque Terra cities and walks. Would love to come back and spend more time. Fabulous rooms overlooking the sea and gardens, with kitchen to prepare our own meals and then eat outside in our private garden. Highly recommend! Great staff too, fun to see our big luggage on the tram-there are many many stairs.

this is the type of hotel where you love the views and location but the service is really not that good... you have to pay for internet and cant get it in your room, must go up 200 stairs to the main area to use it, you have to pay for breakfast (6 euros) and it is really not worth it, the staff are less than helpful when it comes to commuting between the hotel and riomaggio which is 4km away... you really shouldnt book this place unless you have a car. my friend and i didnt have one and well, the owners were not helpful in figuring out transport to the town so we hitch hiked... but, in the end, if you are willing to forgo some of the first world amenities we take for granted in a hotel, the view is absolutely worth it and its very quite and peaceful.

We loved the staff and these 60 year olds didn't mind the stairs. Lighting along the stairs at night is good. The restaurant was ok - great views, but they don't know how to cook beef. Other options - there were a few - were fine and the desserts were great. The bus is a limiting factor but right across the street, but the staff was so helpful running off train schedules and points of interest. Generally the cats aren't a problem, but it's no fun to sit on a beautiful porch and compete with a cat for an expensive dinner. This is no where near Corniglia or Riomaggiore. There is a local cafe next door by the road that had a good deal on a sandwich lunch, but the music could sometimes be heard way down the mountain. Go outside - the views are wonderful but there was only one window out from our unit. They offered a cost-free cold gaseous water machine. I loved it. It was a really nice isolated, beautiful place, but I think I would have preferred a room in town.

Overall, we were disappointed with Borgo di Campi. When we arrived, it was a very hot day. We had to carry our own suitcases to our cottage. There was no other reason than that there was no one there to work the rail system. When we got into our cottage, it was so hot it was unbearable. The air was not working then nor did it work throughout our stay. A little bit of cold air came out of the conditioner but not enough to make a difference in our cottage. My husband slept outside on the balcony for the 5 nights so that my daughter and I could take the 2 beds in the living room closest to the door so we could get some air. We had a wonderful balcony, the highest at the hotel. But when we got there, it looked like a cyclone hit the place. Some of the chairs were broken and the umbrella ripped. After we told management, they replaced everything the very next day. There was no internet. You had to go close to the office (up the 300 steps), we were given 2 toilet paper rolls for the 5 days for the 3 of us. Towels were never replaced. We even had to make our own beds when we arrived. There are very few buses we could take to get into Riomaggiore and the last one was very early. Therefore, we could never be in any of the 5 towns later than 6 or so. We had a car parked across the street but if we drove to Riomaggiore it was expensive to leave it in the parking lot all day and the lot closed early evening and our car would be locked in there and we would have no way to get back to the hotel. So...we drove into La Spezia one night..it was wonderful and into Portovenere another night and that was great. For the money we paid per night, we just expected more...or at least what we read on the website. The TV didn't even work. There was no reception. The hotel is in a great location. I think more could be done to make the guests comfortable and happy.

It is unquestionable the beauty of the place. However, the room is small and very small window. I knew the number of steps to reach the quarter but it is only suitable for those with good physical preparation. Access to the village Riomaggiore is restricted to a few options of the green bus schedules. The information received on the tours were not enough and I discovered by myself the advantages of displacement and boat rides between the villages rather than the use of trains

Lovely place- having our own terrace was absolutely wonderful. Amazing views. Well- equipped kitchen, bright white bathroom/bed linen, everything was very clean. WIFI available at the office only, not in apartment. Free parking. The 200 steps are not bad at all, but you do not want to do this with heavy suit cases. Luggage train trolley was shut down by authorities. Easy drive by car to Riomaggiore - ample parking available there in parkade in July (23.00 euros per day or less if visiting for a shorter time).

Location, location, location! Yes, there are a lot of steps, but anywhere you stay in Cinque Terre will have tons of steps b/c many towns don't allow cars in and you would have to walk with your luggage to any place you stay. Here, however, you have BREATHTAKING views from almost every unit. We traveled with friends and had both the Gelsamino and Giuglio units. The Gelsamino unit was one bedroom (queen bed) with stunning views from its two windows across a bridge/deck from the rest of the unit which had 2 twins and the kitchenette area. The Giuglio unit was a studio with a queen and two twins and a separate garden area up a few steps. We stayed two nights and cooked in our units the second night (ate in Manarola the 1st night- delicious and free parking after 8PM, not so w/Riomaggiore). The Guiglio unit's kitchen was fine, but in Gelsamino, the stovetop shorted out and started smoking underneath the counter and the smell of a potential electrical fire was intense. The circuit breaker never tripped which was truly worrisome. We informed the night reception staff who spoke little English and didn't seem to understand the severity. The day staff at the front desk was immediately alarmed at the failure of the circuit breaker and got someone to get to it after we checked out. We didn't take the shuttle bus from the hotel as we heard it was not very frequent, so we just drove to Riomaggiore (and paid 23Euro for a day of parking in their garage which closes at 8PM- a steep price and other towns were cheaper to park in their surface lots which were unattended after 8PM). The hotel was truly in a gorgeous setting, even if the units themselves were a bit dated (clean, though, but the showers did cause floods with their poor design to contain the water). You had to thoroughly clean your kitchen area or risk a 20Euro fine. We were given the runaround with the internet and never got it to work there. But the unique setting and views are reasons to come back!

Il Borgo di Campi is fantastic: As other reviewers have noted: 1. This hotel is ideal if you have a car - bus transportation is limited, taxi service is unavailable, walking is next-to-impossible unless you are an experienced hiker. Reception does have a bus and train schedule - but your options are not extensive if you want to stay out late or go into the villages in the early morning. I also recommend calling before you arrive to get specifics of how to get to the Hotel - Google Maps will send you to the wrong place. 2. This hotel is good if you like climbing stairs - there are a lot of them... which means that you get far away from the road, and you will be living on a cliff overlooking some of the most beautiful coastline in the world. If you are in recovery from a knee-replacement surgery... look for another place to stay. If you're looking for a bellboy to grab your luggage while you sip your mimosa and take the elevator to your room - don't stay near 5 terre - go to a large city. HOWEVER, if you are interested in an amazing view in a charming cliff-side village with beautiful gardens... you will be rewarded for the stairs you climb. 3. A decent internet connection is (at the time of this review) ONLY available near the hotel office / restaurant - this is a LONG distance hike up the hill... there is zero internet access near the rooms. 4. The view is stunning. The area is beautiful, a paradise for hikers or people looking to lounge about and smell the see air. 5. Extremely dog-friendly place - most of the residents we saw (including ourselves) were traveling with their four-legged pals. 5. The restaurant is charming with very friendly staff. The breakfast was fairly standard and affordable. Overall - The room was nice, clean, quiet and affordable - we look forward to staying here again.

Beautiful setting for a very comfortable apartment. We were very pleasantly surprised that each apartment has a small garden with views directly of the ocean. Dramatic vistas to wake up to every day and to enjoy whenever in the apartment. The walk down to the apartment, and especially back up to the reception and restaurant is a bit long, but this allows for the apartments to be set beautifully on the mountainside. Very noteworthy as well is the restaurant, where the dishes served are prepared with great care and served by verynice waiters. Overall, an excellent choice for a stay in Cinque Terre.

We stayed in April which was outside the high season, using it as a base for a five day walking holiday in the Cinque Terrre. Il Borgo di Campi is located about 4km outside Riomaggiore so you will need a car if you don't want to be tied to the timetable of the green shuttle bus from the town. It is probably too far to walk for most people. We were greeted by a friendly receptionist who showed how to find the apartment. They are set into a steep hillside with impressive views of the coast. They are grouped in small standalone units with a rustic feel to them. The grounds are large and has the feeling of being in a large garden. Yes, there are many steps but there aren't many places in Cinque Terre that aren't steep and full of steps. We ate in the restaurant two nights and were very pleased with the quality and value.

It is definitely a long walk (200 steps) down to the apt. You need to be traveling light and be an avid walker - but that is why people go to Cinque Terre. We have kids and were staying a while so we had too much luggage. We were able to arrange to have it transported up by the small rail or we would have died. We were given a property that had leaks and not set up (no sheets provided -- by the way in Italy you often have to make up your own beds so don't be surprised). When we phoned up, after unpacking, we were assigned a new apt. This on was MUCH nicer, larger, better view and I do not understand why we weren't given it in the first place. We were paying for one of the larger properties so it wasn't a step up in price. We were off season and so it was quiet but not empty. Kitchen facilities are minimal but OK for breakfasts and a great view on patio if weather is good. I would NOT recommend this if you do not have a car. Transportation by bus is sporadic and the property is somewhat isolated. Do not go here if you are allergic to cats or hate them - there is a cat house on the property and you will see three or four wherever you are - they will be on your patio and will try to come in.

We had a marvelous time at this hotel ! We had an appartment with a spectaculor view on the ocean named "Papavero" ! Be aware... There was about 200 stairs from the reception to our appartment... But when you see the view, the effort is worth it. The staff were very nice and good people. Cinque Terre is a fantastic place ! Don't miss the "Amore walk" between Riomaggiore and Manarola. The only burden at that place is the shuttle; there's not enough bus; if you miss it, you're stuck there for about 2 or 2.5 hours until another shuttle passes... Plus, they are often late... You can't walk the distance between the hotel and Riomaggiore; it's too far so don't miss your bus because it's a long wait...Because there's A LOT of stairs, the manager should think about a way to bring down, and back up when we're leaving, our luggage to our room. This service is usually offered when you're on a cliff like at Positano.

This is the first time I stayed at Il Borgo. Each appartment has it's own terrace overlooking the sea - the views are amazing. However, beware! I asked for a two room appartment (sleeping 3) to share with my father, expecting there to be 2 bedrooms. There were indeed two rooms, but one was a bedroom (with the one bathroom en suite) and the other was the kitchenette / dining room / lounge. The facilities are fairly basic, but this is compensated for by an incredible setting, parking (!) that is available on the road immediately outside and flexibility to eat at the restaurant there or cook for yourself. I would certainly stay there again, but probably not on my honeymoon!

Amazing. The cottage is like something out of a fairy tale the way it is perched on the edge of the Mediterranean. Unfortunately, I didnt ask the name of the wonderful lady and her husband who run the place.. but they cooked the most amazing pasta for us when we arrived late in the evening. The restaurant was closed, but they still made us this lovely pasta that we will remember for a while. A couple of things about location: 1. Pack light if you arrive after 6pm. The walk to the bus station is not an easy one. You are going uphill for about 1km. Also you will have to carry your heavy suitcase up and down the stairs (about 150 stairs) to your cottage after you check in at the hotel. We left our heavy luggage in the lobby and just took smaller back packs down to the cottage. 2. When you get out of the train station in Riomaggiore, make sure you go through a tunnel to get to the town center. If you dont go through a tunnel, you are going the wrong way. We came out of the info kiosk and went straight up the road right outside the station. Do not do this! We walked for a while with heavy baggage before some kind souls gave us a ride in their car to the bus stop. If you go through the tunnel, the walk to the bus station is not that bad. If you get there earlier in the day, the bus stops closer to the station.

We chose one of the smaller units and although it was small it suited our needs adequately. The views were fantastic. The AC was noisy and it provided minimal cooling. A circulating fan would have been appreciated. The staff were very friendly and helpful, bus service to Riomaggiore was a little confusing but manageable.

First Time to Cinque Terre. 22 Aug 2009. Hotel located right off the road. Hotel is tiered down the side of the hillside. No one was there when we went to check in so we had a drink overlooking the fantastic views at a roadside bar that is less than 50 meters away. After our drink, we were able to check in. Lots of steps to room. They do have a mechanism to get your luggage down if need be. Room was adequate. Views out the the two small windows were exceptional. They do have terraces located around but there are some rooms with thier own terrace. Ours was not. Air conditioner is a must and ours did not function. It was clanking and was extremely load and not putting out sufficient air. Could not sleep with it on and to hot to sleep with it off. Told management and they said oh well. We'll get it taken care of. No credit or apology for the inconvience.

The surroundings of this property are unreal - simply stunning views. The host was very helpful, took care of our luggage as you have a pretty steep descent, something like 200 steps from the reception to the actual rooms. But we didn't have to drag our bags up and down those steps, they have a cable car and took care of it for us. The breakfast was very good and the view from the restaurant terrace is to die for!!!

Le site est exceptionnel, il faut donc y aller au moins une nuit pour profiter de la quiétude de l'endroit et jouir de la vue imprenable sur la mer. Pour le reste, la chambre "Althéa" dont nous avons héritée, était très sombre car la fenêtre est ridiculement petite donc il faut passer la tête dehors pour avoir une vue panoramique... Pour ce qui est de l'accueil du propriétaire, je le qualifierai du "strict minimum syndical"... Le soir, nous avons mangé au restaurant de l'hôtel,sur la terrasse qui surplombe la mer: le repas était correct sauf le dessert un tiramisu qui m'a énormément déçue car il n'était pas fait maison donc pas terrible du tout. Le serveur était très sympathique!

We arrived late. They were nice to wait for us. Was really surprised of the room. I booked 2 room apartment. It was actually one room + one living room with convertible beds and the room was very small. The name is Pervinca and cost 152euros a night. Dust rolling along the corner. More surprising that after long journey and late at night we have to make our own bed(they only left pile of sheets and pillow cases on the bed)! Luckily they looked clean. Toilet was very small and rusty with no ventilation. They had some little repare work to do in the village and they started quite early, so don't expect a good sleep. No croissant in the morning as they mention in the menu. The only positive point I would say is the nature and view that has nothing to do with the hotel. They just happened to be there to make money. But looks like accommodations in the whole 5 terre is like this.

Beautiful view!! Right on the cliff overlooking the ocean. Restaurant looked fantastic, although did not eat there as was ill on my stay. The staff were very friendly - the manager made me a tea to soothe my cough!! The room was spacious and you have lots of space to sit outside and take in the scenery. It is not very close to the village but the shuttle busses are okay and cheap. The view is worth it. It feels like you have the whole of the Med to yourself.

fuyez vite!!! je déconseille cet endroit à tous. si vous êtes véritablement dans un paysage de carte postale, il ne faut attendre des gérant de cet appart-hôtel aucun service, aucune gentillesse, aucune politesse et aucune hospitalité. j'avais réservé un appart pour trois personnes au prix de 117€ la nuitée(il s'agissait du tarif le plus élevé pour un appart de ce type). j'ai eu un appart certes mignon, mais sans terrasse(contrairement à presque tous les autres...), à côté du local technique, des poubelles et des assiettes de nourriture pour les nombreux chats. Mieux la climatisation fonctionne au bon vouloir du patron qui la 16 juillet 2009 sous 35° considérait qu'il ne faisait pas assez chaud...

Simply put, Borgo di Campi is the most beautiful hotel i have ever imagined. We stayed in a triple (with two people), so we had plenty of space. Our friends had a double, still plenty of space. There are convenient kitchens in each room and a balcony on the triples, making our social dinners the highlight of our trip. The house wine was great, the restaurant phenomenal, the staff wonderful, and the views stunning. The only drawback (double edged sword really) was that it was quite a hike up the road from Riomaggiore, so we had to catch the bus at spotty times and the last one at 6, or tough it up and walk about 4k uphill. On the flipside, we were secluded. All six of us can't wait to get back to the Cinque Terre, and Borgo made it so wonderful. I almost hate to give it the true review so we can be the only ones there, if everyone knew how great it was, it'd be swamped. I highly recommend it.

Fantastic place just outside the Riomaggiore. The views were wonderful and really enjoyed the dinners watching the sunsets! Early accounts commented that the shuttle service from Riomaggiore had the last bus at 6:30. When we arrived they had switched to the summer schedule with 3 additional bus after 6:30 with the last at around 11. Enjoy!

The house wine was excellent a definite must try. Unfortunately on our second night the next door neighbours were very loud until the early morning, which was very disruptive of the otherwise tranquil and beautiful venue. The steps with luggage are a work out in themselves though so be warned but they should not discourage you from staying here.

What an awesome place is the Cinque Terre and the position of this lodge highlights all the area has to offer. Incredible views, incredible old stone buildings, built down the cliff face. Had no problems with the stairs, even with creaky knees, there are plenty of landings to stop, and take in the view while recovering to attempt the next section. Wonderful food at the restaurant, one of the best meals we had in Italy. Friendly staff. Yes we had to make our beds, but as they say in Italy, Allora. Would recommend a stay here to anyone except the very infirm. The only point to offer is that they should sell Post Cards of their establishment looking up from the ocean. Would be a good seller, I'm sure. Thank you for your hospitality, Il Borgo di Campi.

Cinque Terre is one of the most beautiful spots on earth we think. Other tourists in the area seem very nice and talkative. The view of Il Borgo di Campi is fantastic and the price of the rooms okay, so we would surely want to stay there another time. The owners are nice and friendly although the staff in the restaurant seemed a bit ineffective and slow. We enjoyed our stay a lot, but must mention the bad smell from the toilet/bathroom. If we had to stay another night we would have asked for other rooms. Best regards Lisbeth Ingerslev

Walking up and down the many stairs – between the many cats – is finally effortless and the place is worth it. More frequent buses to Riomaggiore would have been better but nothing to do with the residence. A very pleasant stay.

Wonderful view from the terrasse of the restaurant but not so large from the room (depends of course of the room you receive and you will feel frustrated if you don't get the best ones in such surroundings). Do not wait for any help in carrying your luggage after the lift has brought them closer from your room, but not very close... Very bad smell from the bathroom. You have to do your bed yourself when you arrive. Riomaggiore is not the nicest village of the cinque terre, but is a good departure point for a walk from monterosso back to riomaggiore when taking a boat in the morning.

We really enjoyed our four days in Il Borgo di Campi. We arrived late, and had not read the small print to see that we had to check in before 8. The guy was annoyed but let us in. It was far to carry the suitcases to get to anf from the appartment, but once there it was worth it. I think the name of our appartment was Glacine. If I were to stay again? I think I would ask for it by name - not all the other one's had as nice or big, or well placed balcony... It's a bit of a distance to Riomaggiore, so I think you have to have a car, or be a proper hillwalker. We are not but we had a car, and all we wanted for the four days was a place to relax and enjoy the view and weather during the day, and for it to be close enough to pop into Riomaggiore to go for dinner in the evening. It was just th sort of place we wre looking for!

Gorgeous views, convenience of having a kitchenette and separate apartment. However, a few issues that we could plan for next time. The do-it-yourself cleaning is good in theory, except for it was obvious that the previous visitors skipped that step on their way out. We were only staying two nights, but we cleaned up with what we could find there. For a longer stay I would bring a few cleaning supplies like an all-purpose spray or something. The other issue we had was the centipedes. We came in one evening, turned on the lights, and there were four or five centipedes on the walls/ceiling. Creeped me out, and I'm a biology teacher. I love creepy crawlies. Just not in my bedroom. So we killed the ones we saw. Then we went to dinner, came back, turned on the lights and there were three more. So we slept with the lights on both nights to keep the centipedes in their hiding places. Next time I'd bring bug spray. But I'd still probably sleep with the lights on! The cats were cute and friendly, but the one-eyed cat was a bit creepy. The restaurant was great, we sat RIGHT on the edge of the balcony, which freaked me out a bit, as I am deathly scared of heights. After being here though and going up and down the stairs a few times, and drinking a bottle of limoncino on a terrace overlooking the Mediterranean, I got over my fear of heights a bit. By the way, the apartment we were in was the Papavero. Our area was fine, but we did notice the sewage odors that others have mentioned in other areas on the site. The luggage trolley worked well for us on arrival, but we had to do an early morning departure, so we had to carry it up the stairs ourselves. It was do-able, but I wouldn't recommend it!

I guess you all have seen pictures from Cinque Terre with amazing views over the sea and coastline. The reality is even better. Il Borgo di Campi is a small village clinging on to the steep slope 2-300 meters above the sea. The apartments are in different sizes and are all named after flowers. The view from the window could knock you down! On the furnished patio surrounded with small hedges of rosmary, you can watch the sunset and taste the local wine.Smashing!! It is very quiet. The staff is very nice and helpful. Next to the reception, there is an excellent restaurant. From the reception you have to walk down to the apartments; someone said it is some 270 steps! Nevermind, you can have your luggage transported on a small monorail up or down, so don´t worry. Since Il Borgo is situated 4 km east of Riomaggiore you should have a car, it makes things much easier. We can certainly recommend these apartments to people who wants a relaxed time off.

Der Blick von der Anlage ist tatsächlich so toll wie auf den Fotos und alles in allem ist es eine schöne Appartementanlage. Es gibt jedoch weit und breit keine Möglichkeit, entspannt baden zu gehen und die Appartements waren leider nicht wirklich sauber bei Ankunft.

We stayed in Riomaggiore for three nights and absolutely loved the area. The apartment was quite nice with two rooms and a view to die for and really had all you needed for a breakfast (including coffee maker) and light dining. There is restaurant and bar (200 steps -- I counted) above so you could always get a dinner (except Monday) if you didn't want to stay in town and try to walk back the apartment. The outdoor area for our apartment left much to be desired. Try to get an apartment with its own terrace for private sunset viewing. This isn't a place for you if you don't like cats. It is quite a way from the Riomaggiore center and the quickest way to get there is walking on a rather trecherous road. If you are real walker, stay a couple of days and after the tourist laden trip between the Cinque Terre, get the 6 euro map from the front office and take some of the walks at the top of the hill -- they are wonderful and less travelled by tourists. The trails are well marked and always lead to a lovely little town with a bar and/or restaurant en route.

Very poor communication on the shuttle service. We did not know the implication of such few times for the shuttle and that the last shuttle leaves at 6:30 p.m. from the TOP of the street and not at the bottom. More info needs to be give to the customers who need to use this service. We were stranded on night and the hotel owner was not happy to have to come and pick us up. The room had many small ants that kept biting us and no spray around available to us.

Although we did not have supper there, which we wish we did, because we wanted to do so much other things and had little time so we were not able to experience the food. The view from our window was incredible and the stairs to get to and from the room was what made it more real to fully appreciate the landscape and the incredible coast of the cinque terre. I would definitly return. We were there with two teenagers who loved it and also adored the cats and found that they never bothered us. They were especially in love with little 'cicchina' the little blind cat. The rooms were spacious and the sheets were crisp and clean and white. The luggage was a bit of a struggle but they assisted us with a trolley that lowered the baggage close to your location. You couldn't be where you were without some work in getting your luggage there. Well worth it.

Good quiet home base to explore Cinque Terre; we had a rental car, and found parking difficult in the towns. Suggestion: drive to either Riomaggiore or Manarola, then park and take the train to get to each village. The train is fast, and it puts you close to everything.

We had one of the downstairs rooms (can't remember the name). From the moment we walked in, the smell of cat urine was in the air, especially in the bedroom just outside the bathroom door. This was our only complaint but it was so bad that we couldn't wait to get out of the room each morning, and would never come back to your resort again. Such a shame as the location was so beautiful. Someone should keep the cats out of the rooms and scrub the floor with Clorox.

I gave this property and excellent rating because it really is a gem. The view is spectacular, the rooms are comfortable and spacious, the employees are helpful. There is also a very good restaurant with a nice waitress (amazing find in Italy!) on the property, that I would recommend. There were just two areas for improvement. The first is that the price on Venere was not the actual price; before I booked it, the property confirmed with me that the price for the room was actually 15 euros more per night. It was well worth it, so I was happy to pay it, but it would be better to get that straightened out with Venere.com ahead of time. The other problem was that the pictures on the property's website, which by and large were accurate, had one flaw when it came to our room ("Ibisco"). What appeared to be the view from our room was not the actual view. And, we expected to have a little private fenced in garden space off the room with an unobstructed view of the sea; we did not have this (there was a semi-private place to sit, but not with a view). Still, the view from our window was nice and there was plenty of common space on the property (benches and tables) where we could sit and enjoy unobstructed sea views. There are rooms on the property that have private seating areas with amazing views, but not our room. All in all, I would definitely stay there again, even if the only room available was the one in which we stayed.

We stayed here for 3 nights in mid May. The view from the apartments is absolutely gorgeous and we could not have asked for a quieter night of sleep. The only drawback is the distance from Riomaggiore. You can walk from the bottom of town to Il Borgo di Campi in about 1 hour all uphill. The shuttle bus run by the national park stops right by the entrance of the hotel, but there are only 4 buses per day with the last one leaving at 6:20 PM. The best thing to do is pick up a bus schedule from the national park office at the train station when you arrive. Other shuttle buses will get you near the hotel, but you will still have to walk about 2.5 Km which takes about 30 min. After the walk from town to the hotel the 200 stairs to and from the apartments were pretty negligible. The staff was very accomodating. After walking to the hotel for 30 minutes with our backpacks on our first day we found out the restaurant was booked for the night. The receptionist made arrangements for us to stay and eat at the restaurant when she recognized we were not up for walking all the way back to town. The meal was well worth the stay too - some of the best we had on our trip.

Yes, there are 200 steps. However, if you are reasonably fit and have carryon luggage...no problem. A little out of the mainstream of the Cinque Terre but that has its pluses. Bus service is good to Riomaggiore but means you must come back early (6 pm). Be prepared to eat in restaurant or cook for evening meal!
