True Dolce Vita experience in this very nice and small boutique hotel. Amazingly nice staff, all of them. Very well mannered yet not pretentious at all. Just what I love. The location is absolutely gorgeous, over looking the bay of Silence. Staired Terrace and swimming pool, just above the sea. All very boutique hotel size, so you do feel at...

If you are looking for something that goes beyond the emotion generated by the food, this is the place. To start with, even a sandwich will be great here considering that Helvetia has by far the best view in Sestri! Sercice is great and food is good..i just discovered that they will start serving dinner as well since summer 2017,...

What a marvelous hotel this is! Service, Rooms, Pools, Food. It has been a long time like we felt like walking around in a James Bond movie. We still think with great pleasure of the 2 days we spend at the hotel. When staying there, also walk along the beach to the other side of the Baia del Silenzio and...

From the moment we arrive the staff welcomed us and made us feel comfortable. They were very helpful with questions, suggestions and directions, with offers of beverages and suggestions for lunch. The fabulous owners and staff all spoke great English which made reservations and recommendations very easy. Valet parking was well worth it as the local streets are very narrow....

Charming hotel overlooking the Bay of Silence. The rooms are a little on the small side but that's to be expected being nestled into the hillside. The staff were very helpful and the breakfast was excellent and varied. Two pools with plenty of outdoor space. We found the noise from within the hotel was a bit loud especially the people...

Just came back from this beautiful seaside hotel. It has awesome views of Harbor and you shaped community. The service is excellent the food was delicious the atmosphere very relaxing. If you plan on attending Chinqua terra this is the place to stay. It is only a quick train or ferry ride to the five towns.

This lovely hotel is terrific... (once you finally get to it). Charming staff... lovely rooms and a very cool patio for toddies overlooking the bay. Breakfast was fabulous as well. Lots of interesting things that Americans would never imagine for breakfast... Just large enough to have nice amenities, but certainly not too large.

Wonderful luxury. Ideal location on Sestri Levante's Baia Silencia. Quiet, cheerful professional staff. Exquisite furnishings. To top it off, an infinity pool with a view of the bay to die for. 5 stars.

This is the secret place for a calm and relaxing holiday that we don't really want to tell people about! The friendly and helpful management and staff cannot be faulted. The location is ideal for a quiet get-away.

My wife and I were blessed to stay at this fine hotel for our 30th anniversary. We were immediately greeted by the owner Alessandro and his wife Marcella. They could not have been more loving nor more helpful. This hotel was once his grandfather's mountain top mansion overlooking the harbor at Sestri Levante. The views are absolutely spectacular. The attention...
