“Amazing Italian Experience”
Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

We really enjoyed our stay at Il Nido and will miss the stunning sea views from the breakfast room and terraces. We particularly enjoyed the delicious array of foods at breakfast, fruits, cereals, pastries, and cold cuts. The staff were very friendly and always on hand to help- particularly Cinzia in the breakfast room. The hotel also features it's own small private beach with a terrace set into the cliff face overlooking the sea. The hotel is well located, just a short walk into the small village of Tellaro or a bus ride to Lerici where you can get a boat to the Cinque Terre. Florence is also accessible by car. There are also some nice restaurants within walking distance of the hotel in particular La Caletta where we indulged in our passion for great pasta and seafood. Would love to return next year!

The best place to stay when visiting Cinque Terre, close to the touristic places to visit but very quiet, great atmosphere, very nice people, we come since 10-12 years and have always enjoyed it so much.

We absolutely loved this place! Our family of 4 was across the street in Il Nido 2, on the bottom floor, without a view, but our room was air conditioned, nicely decorated, large and clean. Did not bother us a bit that we didn't have a view from our room. We spent most of our time at the beach.

The location of this small quaint village was away from the busier villages of Lerici, La Spezia, and Cinque Terre region. It did take some time to travel to the Cinque Terre region by taxi, bus and train, but coming back to our quiet village was just what we needed.

Everyone at the front desk staff and beach bar were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was amazing and the best we had in 3 weeks of our travels and ... it was FREE! Loved the small private beach with kayaks and small rock cliffs for our boys to jump from.

The town of Tellaro is a short walk to amazing Italian seafood, shops and markets. Only stayed 3 nights and wished we would have stayed for a week. Would love to come back someday.

Room Tip: Book early to reserve a room with a view. Travelers of two or less will stay in the main part of th...

Loved our stay at Il Nido. Fantastic area, great views and nice serviceminded staff.
This is a place for true relaxation. The rooms are simple (NIDO2) but fully functional (you dont go here to spend time on the room). Breakfast and snackbar works fine and there is a short walk into Tellaro where you find some nice restaurants.
Tellaro is not a high end vacation resort but a lovely, relaxed and truely Italien village where you get the chance to experience really good italian seafood and some nice views.

Can't recommend this hotel high enough. We are a family of five that stayed here for 2 nights on our summer vacation. Wish we could have stayed longer. The views are outstanding. The beach is perfect. The staff literally jumped any time we asked for anything (thank you Fabrizio!). We enjoyed walking into Tellaro and eating authentic italian food on the square. I'm so glad we found this hotel. My family was thanking me (slam dunk!).

I have mixed feelings about Il Nido. We booked a double room with panoramic view and terrace and we got both...sort of. The panoramic view was only available from the terrace which was adjacent to a ladies toilet. I thought €160 a night B&B a bit strong and the room only just about met the description on the booking confirmation. The room was clean but basic, no frills. The hotel is in two parts either side of the road. The older part is on the cliff accessed down a lot of steep steps. On checking in, when I asked if someone could help us with our cases from our car parked up the slope in the hotel car park across and along the road after our long drive from Pisa, I was told in no uncertain terms that this is a 3 star hotel signor hence we don't provide that service. Sorry I asked and thanks for the warm welcome. With Italy's unemployment rate so high, carrying guests' cases along the road and down the many steep stone steps to the hotel's reception could provide a great opportunity for an out of work weightlifter to be gainfully employed. This is a hotel not a backpacker's lodge.

The breakfast is OK but nothing to get excited about. Get ready to take your place in the queue for the coffee machine. Wi fi is charged for and only available in the small lounge next to reception.

My conclusion on Il Nido is that with some more thought, care and amore it could be wonderful, as is it's a case of unfulfilled potential. And if you have a bad back and heavy cases...

Lerici and San Terenzo are charming former fishing villages sadly now completely overrun with cars. In the words of Joni Mitchell 'They paved paradise and put up a parking lot' on the hillside just outside the villages and you have to take the free bus from the massive hilltop car park down into the villages.

BUT...the village of Tellaro is lovely and when in this area don't miss the boat trip from Lerici to the Cinque Terre villages and back. That is truly amazing.

Room Tip: Make sure on booking you make sure exactly what sort of room you are getting.

We stayed at Hotel Il Nido from May 8 to May 11, 2013, in a sea-view triple room on the top floor of the building across the street from the reception. The room itself was rather small for a triple room, but it had a giant terrace overlooking the bay (there were even sun-beds and tables on the terrace). The bathroom was not large, but it had a window and was brand-new and well-equipped. The hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating. The hotel has its own little private beach, and the steps leading down to it are very picturesque. The breakfast was plentiful and tasty; there was even a self-service machine to make fresh orange juice (which we made quite a use of - imagine those Italian sweet blood oranges!). The only issues with this property for us were its location (from Lerici, it was a 30-minute hike, on a narrow and busy highway, with no sidewalks, or a 10-minute bus or cab ride (note that the bus and cab service was irregular and unreliable)) and unavailability of the internet in the room (the internet was only available at the reception area, for an additional cost).

Room Tip: For such a beautiful location, a sea-view is must!
