We loved our room! It was a bit of a hike getting there, but what in Riomaggiore isn't? The staff was so friendly, and kept joking with us about the climb to the room. Once we got in the room, it was wonderful! It had a lot of character. It was a little on the small side, but it didn't really matter. It would be hard to stay there for more than 1 or 2 nights, because there is no place to unpack your stuff. This wasn't a problem for us though, because we were just there for the night with a backpack between the pair of us. Beds were soft, sheets clean, and there were plenty of clean towels. I highly recommend this hotel to any one who wants to stay there!

As others have said on this site, the actual rooms are not at the place in the centre of town where the office is. When you check in, the host will walk you up the street, up a bunch of stairs, up some more streets to his house. The rooms are part of a house/home...and you share a common living area and bathrooms. We did not have a view of the ocean from our room, although it seems some of the top floor ones might have somewhat of a view. But we didn't stay there for the view and the home was very comfortable and the host/hostess were very kind and helpful. They were very concerned that we were "happy" with the rooms...which we were. The bathrooms were very clean, the bedding was very clean and very comfortable...and the neighborhood was pleasant and safe. We could walk down to the train station and the town easily. The views from just outside the house were very lovely. Our room also opened up to a small back yard/orchard where there were fruit trees and jasmine and we enjoyed it immensely.
I was worried because I booked this hotel knowing there were some bad reviews. It was all I could find available. The room was perfectly fine. The bed spread was dated, but the room was clean and close to the train station. We arrived late because there was a train strike. I called ahead of time to let them know because I know the check-in is on the main street, and the room is down a side street. The check in location closes around 7:30, and we didn't arrive until 9:00. They hid the key for me, so when we arrived and I called them - they directed me to where the key was hidden. I'd definately stay here again. I loved Riomaggori!

I stayed in one of the apartment style rooms at Locanda Dalla Compagnia in Riomaggiore. I honestly don't know why people have given this place bad reviews because my stay was fantastic. The price was very reasonable and everything we could ask for was provided. If you are looking to stay in Riomaggiore, I'd highly recommend staying here and reserving one of the Standard Apartments.
"La locanda della compagnia" is located at the beginning of the village, and it faces a little typical square where you can …More
The owners of this hotel were great people. I originally chose this for a view, unfortunately because we had four people we were on the main street in an apartment. The apartment had everything you could need, a full kitchen, washer, three bedrooms, a pull out sofa. However, even though there is limited road access we were awakened by a lot of traffic in the morning, there was a music festival so I am sure there was extra traffic due to that but still it was noisy as the vehicles drove over the drainage grates. This town is VERY hilly, if you are not into hiking up and down hills don't stay here. We enjoyed our stay but would probably try a different town next time only for a different experience. The town has quant shops, co ops for groceries, it was very nice.
