Hotel Villa Argentina
Ranked #8 of 11 Hotels in Riomaggiore
Reviewed 6 November 2011

The staff at Villa Argentina were great. Stayed for 3 nights and was pleasantly surprised by the condition of the room and stunned by the view (mind you, you deserve a treat after making it up the hill from the train station / port). Breakfast was excellent and the coffee good enough to have seconds...

The Cinque Terre area is not for the faint hearted. if you don't like hills then you'll need to stay further down the coast.

Room Tip: Ask for the top floor

We caught the train from La Spezia, walked through the tunnel with murals and caught the electric bus (1.50 euros I think) up the very very very steep 'road' right to the door of the hotel (instructions thanks to our agent!). Friendly staff and a nice twin room with balcony looking out to the water. Lovely buffet breakfast and I would recommend picking up fresh fruit, veges, cheese, salami, bread and wine from one of the many local shops to eat and drink while sitting on your balcony listening to the church bells and watching the sun slowly setting. Magical.

Room Tip: With balcony and on the road (sea) side.

Stayed 2 days, it was nice but for too many stairs (we stayed in the apartment, not the hotel).
Breakfast was fine.

Stayed 5 days and had a very positive experience. No expections of a 3 star hotel but extremely surprised by friendly and helpful staff (albeit little English), the clean tidy room and hotel generally and especially the exceptional breakfasts incl home made jams. Doesn't get much better than sitting at our own small balcony, listening to church bells and with views of the village below, vineyards and sea on horizon. The hotel is at top of the village and we then had 52 stairs to our room, so perhaps a challenge to some travellers however we are 70 yrs and enjoyed the fitness regime. Good training for walking Cinque Terre which we did it in one day.

Hotel was nice.
Room was large and clean.
(We requested a seaview and it was good).
Breakfast buffet was fine.
Only problem was Riomaggiore village.
Village is small.
Not many restaurants.
Streets smell of urine.
Seems to be a working mans village, not a tourist village.
I enjoyed Monterosso al Mare and Vernazza villages much more.

Room Tip: Pay in cash and get a discount.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights. We could have stayed in the Cinque Terre for another night, but would not have wanted to at this hotel. This hotel had no air conditioning and a very loud fan. Our room was clean, but crowded. The shared outdoor terrace was nice and our room had amazing views of the town and mediterranean. The staff was not friendly and only recommended the restaurants that they have a partnership with...not restaurants that they would choose to eat at. The breakfast was average...nothing special.

On the positive, my favorite city of the 5 was riomaggiore. It was quaint and you could easily walk to manarola for dinner should you choose.

If you have a family or want to go to the beach for a day I would recommend staying in monterosso or vernazza as they are the two cities with beaches (rocks...not sand!)

Very compact twin room, excellent continental breakfast, a 15 minute uphill walk from the train station so be prepared if you have to walk with luggage, staff not overly friendly, nice public balcony to enjoy the views
