“Avoid this place”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

We were passing by and we stayed one night in this hotel. The hotel is outside the center of Varazze, but in a beautiful location. The receptionist was not just interested in our arrival, the hotel room was stuffy tube. We decided to keep the goods in bags for hygiene reasons. The bathroom was absolutely terrible and the air conditioner was loud. Breakfast was pure because almost everything was packaged in plastic. Find another hotel if you are traveling around here.

Really enjoyed my stay here as the staff were more than helpful by organising pick ups for me and my girlfriend. They cleaned our room everyday and were very friendly. The food was outstanding and the lady who worked in the restaurant and on reception had excellent choice in wine. Thank you for our stay, although it was short we really enjoyed it. Thanks again!

The receptionist is an older guy who would swear under his nose anytime you asked for something, the woman who worked with him walked about the house and into your room with a cigerette in her hand. Dirty hallways and tableclothes.

95 Euro for a night in such place is a ripoff !

Very dated hotel was my first and lasting impression.
The staff were helpful but did not come across as very friendly. This however may have just been their Italian custom.
The double room was ok, but the whole hotel is in need of updating.
The hotel has car parking and secured by an electric controlled gate access and this was good peace of mind with our vehicle parked up over night.

We pre-booked a double room well in advance but we were given a smallish double room what felt like the back of the hotel next to a family with screaming kids.

The hotel website advertises access to the beach across the road, but when we went over to look there was a locked gate preventing us from going down to the beach. I went to ask for the key but was told the hotel doesn't keep the key for the gate. A little bit confused I was.

My view on this hotel is that the room cost should have been about 50 to 60% of what we paid.

I do not know where to start with this review. What an dreadful hotel. The staff member who greeted us(she worked the bar restaurant and front desk) had the demeanour of not wanting to be there((she appeared down trodden). She never smiled, the owner/manager was very strange. The Wi-Fi did not work unless you were in the reception area. The room itself was not very clean I found long hair strands in the shower and in the bed. The entrance to the hotel has the breakfast area on the left as you go in, with the cereals, cups and cutlery on display, so everyone who walks in goes past them, not very hygienic. There is a separate restaurant seating area but this was not used maybe because we were off season?...There is a TV above the door to this seating area which was on very loud. There is also a large screen projected onto the wall also on very loud, it was football night and the other guests mainly consisted of construction workers.The pizzas are fresh and the only good thing I found to say about this hotel. The breakfast was sinister and the bar poorly stocked.
The room was cold and noisy and I got very little sleep.
Having read some of the other reviews of this hotel I would agree this is somewhere to stay as a last resort. As we were leaving I spoke some French to the manager/owner and he seemed to warm a little. To little to late.....
Maybe this hotel is better in the summer??????
It was cheap to stay here but a thoroughly unpleasant experience.....
Poor Hospitality. Noisy. Cold(it was April).

We stayed one night at the Hotel Puntabella. It is in a nice location with views over the Mediterranean on one side. However, groups of young people congregated in the street at night until the wee hours. Very difficult to sleep with the windows open, which we needed since we couldn't get even the fans to work.
Perhaps on the other side it would be quiet.
The restaurant was good for dinner and breakfast.
