Il BoMa: "Comfy, clean & close" Italy Hotel Tip by KB&MC

Italy Hotels: 384 reviews and 444 photos

We spent 5 days in Cinque Terre, basing ourselves in the gorgeous little village of Riomaggiore. We stayed at Il BoMa, and we highly recommend it.

They are very welcoming, and helpful. (Their restaurant tips were spot on). We stayed in the Blue Room - nice new mattress and lovely big and clean bathroom.
No it doesn't have a view of the sea, but who comes to Cinque Terre to sit in your room?!
Yes, it's on the main street but double glazing is a wonderous thing. (If it gets too warm, there is always the air-con).

Unique Qualities: It's on the main street, so after a day's hiking it's easy to pop back to your room and freshen up for a short walk to one of the great little restaurants.
We understand they can also help with car parking if you need it. (If you are driving you will because you'd be mad to drive around here - you'd miss too much for a start).

Address: Via Colombo, 99. Riomaggiore
Price Comparison: about average
Directions: Fromt he train station, turn right at the mural, take the tunnel into town. On the left is th main street - Via Colombo. It's up the hill a bit, just above the only butchers in town.
