After researching for a convenient hotel to tour the Cinque Terre and Portofino, I found this little gem in Sestre Levante. Of all the hotels in this wonderful little town, we chose the Genova for it's room value, proximity to the rail station (1 block), appearance of cleanliness and the friendly email arrangements that I was able to make with the owner's son, who spoke very good English. We were not disappointed on any account! The included free breakfast was good, the location was convenient (1 block to ocean, 1 block to rail station) with plenty of eating places nearby within a short walking distance. We could see the ocean from our 2nd story room and we also enjoyed the rooftop terrace that also added a perfect view of the bay and the nearby surrounding mountains. Located approx. halfway between Portofino & The Cinque Terre makes this the perfect and affordable midway location to stay, avoiding the high room rates of Portofino and Cinque Terre. Also, don't miss the Bay of Silence that is also within a short walk.
We wish we could have stayed there a few more days to enjoy more of the Ligurian Coast.
