This hotel and its grounds covers the top of a peninsula near the center of Sestri Levante. There are not excellent sea views from most rooms of the main part of the hotel, but there are incredible views from the grounds, including the pool area. There is a cute outdoor seating area for breakfast and for cocktails.
The rooms are big but a bit dreary, however, the bathrooms are very nice. The air conditioning is by far the best and most powerful a/c I've ever experienced in Europe! The hotel has a van and will pick you up and drop you at the train station. The hotel is close to Sestri Levante town center but not that close to the train station.
Another time we wanted a ride to the train station (for a day trip to Portofino), they did not want to take us in the van and instead called a taxi. There is also a taxi stand outside the train station.
There are lots of restaurants along the harbor in Sestri and an easy walk from the hotel. Sestri, like Santa Margherita and other towns along the coast, are beautiful, but there is not that much to do other than look at the views.
