“Basic but clean.”
Reviewed 23 September 2012

We had a room overlooking the harbour and beyond, not a bad view. The room was very spacious with lots of drawer and wardrobe space, and the bathroom was very nice with a really good shower. However, the hotel could really do with a lick of paint and updating, but in view of Italy's financial climate this may not be possible. The two girls who ran it both spoke English, but we found it handy to know some Italian words and phrases at times, both in the hotel and the town. The bar service wasn't good unfortunately, it was very difficult to get a beer or a glass of red wine sometimes. The pool was cleaned everyday both in and around it. Lavagna is central, if you have a car, for travelling both up the coast as far as Portofino (very expensive but pretty) and down the other way to Moneglia. We found the Italian people very friendly as always. There is a wonderful restaurant, at the end of the road in which the hotel is situated, called Il Timone, the food is superb and the staff very helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: ask for a balcony room at the end of the corridor overlooking the harbour.

Stayed here for a business trip.

Nice clean hotel, if a bit basic. However, excellent value at 60 Euros for a double room. Great if travelling on a budget.

Only complaints are; no wi-fi (which could be a boon) and the breakfast is simply toast and a few cakes.

Has one of those semi manual elevators - make sure you don't get a room next to it!

My room was at the back and opened to the marina. Nice balcony, which is shared with 2 other rooms.Shower was a bit broken - had to hold the shower head as the bracket was broken.

No air conditioning!

All the signs are in Italian, so if there's a fire or something, it could be an issue.

Lunch and dinner last only half an hour (if my Italian is anything to go by).

Room Tip: Back room away from the elevator

If you want to spend your holiday in possibly the most run-down miserable town (if u can call it that) then visit the armpit of Italy - Lavagna!!!

The only thing worse than terrible service, un-believably poor social skills of most people who reside there and the horrific excuse for sea views is the beyond limited choice of hotels.

I was there on business with my partner and believe me when i say we stayed in two supposed 3 star hotels while our yacht was stuck in their doomed boat yard for 3 weeks. Both of the hotels had broken showers, no air con or fans, and seemed to only really cater for the over 75's or mildly insane.

The only shining asset to either of the hotels was their beyond overworked front of house staff who upheld whatever credability these establishments once had. Ladies you are way too overqualified and wasted in jobs like this save yourself and get out.

Really people if you wanna visit Italy DO NOT GO HERE!!!!! It leaves you spiritually depressed for days after!!!

P.S No-One speaks a word of English - the most used language in the world!!!
