We booked a sea view room which had nice views from the window. The room was small with a very compact bathroom and shower. Beds were fairly comfortable but you could hear other clients in the hotel.

Nice and clean hotel, with excellent service and beautiful breakfast. Recommend this hotel, when staying in Recco. The town itself, have had a hammer during WW2, and therefore, it hasn't a historical centre as such.

The Gnomes stayed in 102 on September 2nd for 1 night. The room was spacious and immaculately presented. The beds are very comfortable. Breakfast was included in our room rate and offered a very good and wide selection.

We were looking for an affordable place closed to Portofino and ended up in Recco. We were very disappointed by the dirty coastal waters and the village in general! I would not recommend it to anybody

Dear guest, we are sorry that you are not left happy with our town. Sure, it's a very simple country, it does not have the charm of Portofino, but when you say it's all dirty you tell the fake. We, however, recommend to all readers of tripadvisor to come and visit us: for those seeking a quiet and relaxing holiday...

Most helpful staff. Views are spectacular from breakfast area and balcony. Rooms are very well kept. Parking is available. If you want a place that is walking distance that is close to shopping and restaurants, this is the place for you. Good value for price. If I ever get the chance to go back, this would be the place.
