“Great base to visit Cinque Terre!!”
Reviewed 9 October 2013

My partner and I spent a couple of nights here in August 2013 whilst visiting the Cinque Terre. Sestri Levante is itself an ideal place to be based in to visit the Cinque Terre or other parts of Liguria such as Portofino or Santa Margherita Ligure. The hotel is not found in the best location (about 7 minute drive to the centre of town and the sea). However this means that it is very affordable and extremely peaceful. Access is also extremely easy thanks to the hotel's parking lot. The rooms were incredibly spacious and comfortable.
Also if you're a tennis player, make sure to bring your stuff as there's a tennis club just opposite the hotel entrance.

Reviewed 15 September 2013

The average rating is due to the permanent presence of mold everywhere. It seems that the area is benefiting by above average humidity all year around and the constructors did not put on the outside walls the proper impermeable paint. Thus, most of the outside walls are clearly wet and this is seen from everywhere. In the interiors you may find rooms with very little smell but also rooms with a strong mold smell. We were 2 couples, one of us change the room immediately but still not good. After 3 days all our clothes were smelling of mold. But more important is mold is awful by all means for the health. The dilemma comes when you see that is always booked, all the rooms are full and it seems to have a name in Sestri Levante. Additionally, I want to make clear that Vila Agnese has the best service, architecture and breakfast from what I saw in so many countries. All these recommends it as a must go hotel but...the mold!?!? Oh, and one important detail. The villa is very remote, close to highway. No chance to go on foot to Sestri Levante center especially in nights due to not very good neighborhood. We had a car and it was not a problem.

Dearest Guest,

First of all I would like to thank you for having shared your opinion with the Tripadvisor community, because it is through all comments and suggestions of our Guests, no matter whether positive or negative, that we can improve our service and hospitality.

Attention to details and personalized service are the foundations on which we have built, throughout all these 7 years, the success of the Villa Agnese.

Regarding the condition of your room, I wanted to answer you that it has been an unlucky occasion where we had a technical issue that we quickly and completely fixed.
What is more, we inform you that every year, during our winter closure, we renew and redecorate our rooms restructuring them both in the space, both in the furnishings.

I remain at your service and, with the hope to have back with us as future Guests, I ask you kindly to contact me personally to be able to give the best care and be able to take care of your stay.

We are looking forward to welcoming you again and we remain,

With our very best regards,

The Owner

What a fantastic hotel! a little bit out from the centre but could be walked in 20 minutes ,
however , all the more reason to explore the fabulous restaurants nearby and there were a few specifically Osteria Giotta which is superb
The hotel is beautiful, the pool is great , the staff friendly and very helpful and breakfast was fab !
could not fault this quiet oasis at all and would absolutely recommend it.
Would be more than happy to stay there again if we return to Sestri Levante

Room Tip: We had the suite and it was very comfortable and gave a bit more space to lounge in nice balcony ove...

What a charming, luxurious place this is. They are rightly proud of the facilities and the rooms. With a 3yr old we loved the pool and the spacious room with balcony. Breakfast (included) was excellent and set us off for a day at Cinque Terra, Portofino etc. Need a car to get into town but that was fine. One note, Il Torchio around the corner was the best pizza I have had.

The hotel has great rooms. Air conditioning did not work , but most guests did not even notice despite temperature not going below 25.5 C

Breakfast selection was one of the best ever. It was truly Italian ( unlike most places that cater German food for German tourists )

The pool was lovely as was common area.

The only downfall was the location - to get anywhere ( incl. dinner ) we had to drive.

I just returned form a short break in Sestri Levante and really enjoyed Villa Agnese. Perfectly situated around the pool and garden area the rooms are large and well decorated and offer all you need for a relaxing stay. The staff are excellent and always available for help on restaurant and information for public transport and other needs for a day out.
Breakfast in the garden is a pleasure with lots of choice, including bio products.
Travelling alone I felt very at ease here and would recommend to couples and small families too.

Room Tip: First floor rooms with balconies are my preference.

The hotel is as good as it looks on pictures, if not better. Our room was with a balcony, just overlooking the pool, and it was very comfortable. Receptionist was very helpful to recommend us restaurants, we always seek advice from a local's point of view. The price is slightly higher than alternatives you find in the web but when you are inside of the premises you will realise what you pay is worth for it. It was in late september and we didn't bring our swimming suits but the swimming pool looked very clean and attractive.

Room Tip: If you need a quiet stay it may be better to book a room at the first floor rather than ground floor...
