We stayed in the property called Daria. When we got there, Francesco was very helpful and friendly. He spent time showing us on a map where we were and what were all the nice things to do at the other stops along the Cinque Terre. He was also happy to help us call people to make reservations, or to answer...

We booked our apartment with Riomaggiore Reservations and it turned out to be the beginning of an amazing few days in Cinque Terre. Amy and Francesco were very attentive, with Francesco going so far as alerting us to a Trenitalia strike the day we were travelling from Florence to Riomaggiore. It certainly helped to have the advance warning and we...

5 gold stars. Highly recommended. I went with my two children aged 14 and 17 and we had a fabulous and fun time due to following Francesco and Amy’s tips. Colombo House is very easy to get to from the railway station room (less than 5 mins walk with wheelie luggage) and our room was much better than expectations. We...

Francesco was fantastic with his recommendations. I definitely got the best of the Cinque Terre hiking in due to his insight. The room was a good size, clean, and quiet as I was at the back, away from the street. Be sure to take your own shampoo. A good value for money option, in a top location. Thank you Francesco.

The hosts had contacted me a month prior to my arrival with detailed directions, things to do and tips on getting around. On arrival, they were certainly warm and welcoming, and they seemed truly interested in what you have planned for the day. Really appreciated that they shared personal favourites and useful tips that you wouldn't find in a guidebook....

The room we got was clean and in a good spot. Just couple minutes from train station in the beginning of the main street. Room had Wi-Fi and it worked ok. The owners were great. Family run business and they really help you and care about you. There is really difficult to get a room if you haven't booked it...

Very friendly and helpful staff. The room was quiet and big, extra plus for fridge and table with two chairs. Riomaggiore is a lovely place and we were happy to get this room to a good price. We will definitely go back!

We were very happy with our stay. The room was very clean, bright and spacious. Location was perfect on the main street, just few minutes walk from the train station and the marina. Francesco gave us useful information about transportation, restaurants and hiking trails in the 5 terre. The day of departure he also helped us buy train tickets as...

I stayed for two nights over Easter with my two daughters at the Colombo guesthouse. The host, Francesco was very helpful and friendly. We arrived in torrential rain and was most relieved that the office was not far up the street from the pedestrian tunnel out of the train station. The triple room had very comfortable beds, tea making facilities...

“Ask about wifi before booking. Ask about a balcony. I don't think all the rooms have that.”

“Ask Francesco for a room at the back (quieter), or front (if you want a view of the main street) when booking.”

“Our room didn't have a view, so if you want a view you need to book directly with management rather than on-line hotel booking sites.”
