Grande Albergo
Ranked #15 of 21 Hotels in Sestri Levante
Reviewed 25 June 2014

The hotel is very nice and the team is very welcoming. Near train station and in front of the beach. Has a swimming pool with a great view and it's restaurant is something very special! I feel in love by its hand made pasta and all the delicious food!
There is only one down point is my perspective in my whole experience: I was there with my 2 year old, which is very busy, and though the experience was great, I must say that maybe the hotel is not prepared to receive small children at this age more or less. I point specifically: shower is slippery, art pieces in the lobby without a protection or note to indicate they are pieces of art, bathroom doors with keys to lock inside (old style) and hard to unlock from the outside...
Another thing that one must watch out is that there is no indication (while doing the reservation) that the use of the Hotel beach (which is a private one) has additional costs to it.
Other than that, I felt very much home.
There is a play area for kids just behind the hotel. You can reach the main roads very easily. The city was marvelous and the hotel team very helpful.
Loved it! :)

Room Tip: The front room, facing the beach, have the main road passing by, so it can be noisy. The back rooms...

The hotel is directly opposite the promenade and beach and in the centre of the best part of the town. Traffic was not a problem as it often is in Ligurian Coastal towns. The hotel itself is understated in terms of decor. The rooms were good. Mine had a balcony to sit out on and watch the world go by. The hotel has free wifi, which is not that common on Italy. The staff were friendly and the breakfast fine. It is quiet a large hotel so beware coach parties.

Probably the best position in front of the sea and the promenade, right in front of their private beach, big private secure parking 2 steps from the hotel, good restaurant with a nice veranda overlooking a small garden, good breakfast, very nice cosy bar, very good service both in the restaurant and in the hotel in general. Rooms and public spaces in a quite good condition, rooms quite spacious, a swimming pool on the upper floor (we didnt use it). They have also a nice and cosy ballroom. During our stay there was a salsa-bachata dancing private event organized one evening, the guests of the hotel could also participate of course.
Sestri Levante has a good strategic location between the Cinque Terre and Portofino, so being based in Sestri Levante it is comfortable to visit these and many other fantastic places on Ligurian seaside by a ferry, train or car. Of course ferry is more recommended.

Room Tip: Of course the best rooms are with balconies with front sea view.

I arrived here with my family through another hotel in Sestri levante. The large family room offered was nice with all we needed. The restaurant (delfino) was amazing, every day we taste a different traditional dish and also PIZZA! Surprise!
The swimming-pool was closed, so I promised I'll be back soon, in summer! Thank you

We stayed at the hotel in April. Our room, while not facing the water,was very nice and clean. Hotel was beautiful, and close to so much within walking distance. Food and service was very good. A wide variety of items for breakfast was available. Bar staff were very friendly and drinks were very reasonably priced. Appetizer tray was included with the price of the drinks which was very much appreciated. Wished we could have stayed longer.

Am writing on behalf of my friends, Judy and Mark, who stayed here. This hotel is in a fantastic location, very central with a secure carpark for extra 30 euros per day. The rooms were beautifully decorated and very spacious. The staff were helpful and the breakfast was fresh and plentiful. One small drawback were the very thin towels, which were more like dish-cloths. They have a bar where we could have a coffee, and we were sorry to leave. Definitely could have stayed longer.

This nice hotel is located in the very center of Sestri Levante, which for me is one of the best places in the Liguria coast.
The hotel is nice, the room spacious and comfortable.
And it is so convenient to just walk put and being in the town center
They also have beach facilities, which is very good for families, especially if they have children.
And, last but not least, it does not have the indecent prices of lots of place nearby. It is very good quality for money.
The staff is warm, professional and friendly.
