Reviewed 24 July 2014

We stayed in room 3, for 3 nights near the end of our 3 month, family European tour with our nine year old daughter. Lovely to be met at the station and given a hand with our luggage! It is in a good location - close to restaurants, shops, station, but also has a good view over the harbour. Nice decor and one of the better bathrooms on our travels! Had some minor issues getting onto the wifi, but once sorted it was great. We would happily stay here again if in Riomaggiore for a few days.

Stayed: June 2014, travelled with family

Perfect location with a beautiful sea view, in the centre of Riomaggiore, a walking distance from railway station. Very nice and clean apartment. Sandro was very kind during the check in and check out, he meet us at the parking located far away from the Alla Marina and help us with a luggage, as well as during our stay.

Room Tip: pick the room with terrace, or with a sea view

We just returned from a 3 week Italy vacation, and stayed at Alla Marina for 3 nights. We thought that the apartment was extremely clean, had a large bathroom, and a beautiful view from the window. At night, we left the window open and could hear the waves crashing against the shore. It is situated in the main portion of Riomaggiore The apartment is also well stocked with juice, water, and assorted pastries for breakfast or a light snack. Upon arrival, Andrea met us at the train station and helped us bring our bags to our room, which was helpful. Andrea also helped us bring our bags to the train station upon our arrival, which again was helpful. We have only one suggestion, and that is a supply closet that houses towels, soap, etc. as we ran out of some items, and the property managers are not at their desks at night. Overall, we would happily stay at this apartment again.

Andrea, one of the proprietors, was kind enough to meet us at the station and help us with our bags (lots of steps and narrow streets) to get to Alla Marina. We were very pleased with the spotless and nicely outfitted room. Alla Marina is situated right in the heart of the action; the sea, the main street of the village and very charming restaurants are all within steps; the train station and ferry dock are easy 5 minute walks. Alla Marina is not really a hotel; more of a small guest house with comfortable rooms (light breakfast provisions are provided in your room) and very friendly proprietors who are available in the mornings, but there is no front desk per se. We stayed here for 4 nights and used Riomaggiore as a base for day trips in the area; glad we did!

We just returned from a 3 week trip to Italy and 4 nights were spent in Riomaggiore.
There were 4 of us staying at this Alla Marina apartment and found it extremely comfortable, in a perfect location, and with beautiful views of which we could not get enough. Andrea (on of the property managers) met us at the train and assisted us with our bags walking us to the apartment and giving us a brief tour of the area. He and his brother Sandro were outstanding hosts and were frequently offering to change sheets, towels, clean the apt, etc... We thoroughly enjoyed our visit, would highly recommend it and fully intend to return to this same apartment.

The best thing is that one of the staff met us at the train station and helped us with our luggage. When we left, another staff helped us with luggage and sent us off at the train station. This was a great help as both my husband and I had shoulder pain. Moreover, a staff went to check for us if the ferry was running when we waited at the hotel. It saved us a lot of walking up and down the stairs as I had an injured ankle.
The hotel itself is quite basic, not the luxurious type. However, it does have everything we needed, including milk, juice, coffee, tea, cereal and packaged croissants in our room.
The only drawback is that the window of the room is facing 3 walls closed to one another, thus it can be hot. Moreover, the window is closed to the stairs that lead to the beach. The stairs are shared by many other visitors in the same building and nearby buildings, thus it was noisy at night.

Room Tip: it may be worthwhile to pay extra 20 euros for the room with sea view - more airy.

Thank you very much for your review. For us, it is really important improve our work with any type of suggestions. It is true that our cheaper room, "Room 1", has no sea view but in this room there are double glassed windows in the room and in the private bathroom.There is air conditioned and you can decided by yourself degrees of your room. We have also put in the walls of this room a double plate of "rock wool" to improve the sound proofing of this room, our "Room 1". Kind Regards Sandro Pasini, one of the owners of "Alla Marina"

My wife, 23 year old daughter and I stayed here for several days in September 2013 and had a fabulous time. We would recommend this location for sure. It is steps away from the ocean and literally on top of nice restaurants. The view from the deck is amazing!
