2023 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best
Cross the antique threshold and you'll enter a small world of emotions. The passion for life, beautiful things and hospitality can be felt, it lingers in every corner of the enchanting B&B where antique and modern blend with harmony, creating an ambiance rich with charm. Throughout the alleys, taverns and ancient shops of Massa's historic centre, IL CUORE Bed and Breakfast is a leap in the past, a place where you will feel welcomed and cuddled and where you will rediscover the pleasure of the conviviality of past times. Nothing is casual, everything is specifically wanted and created by Daniela and Roberto who lovingly selected the decors, furnishings and the many small things that make IL CUORE unique. Let the rocking horses, the old bird cages, the hearts and candles, the Murano glass chandeliers, the sweet and melodic music and the scent of orange blossoms that float in every ambient surprise and enchant you. Every corner is a surprise! The natural and warm tones of the fabrics, the refined elegance of the living room, the intimate atmosphere of the breakfast room, the fragrance of the apple cake that Beata prepares every morning, the light in the garden that enhances the white scented blossoms will make your stay unforgettable, a real revitalization of the body and mind. In the massage room you can enjoy the pleasure of a Shatsu, Reiki or Craniosacral massage among candles and relaxing music. B&B provides bicycles, free of charge, which our guests can use to discover the sweet hills, and reach the seaside, a free and carefree way to visit the nearby areas. If you happen to have a pet with you, IL CUORE and Trilli, our small Maltese terrier, who is the real queen of the house, will welcome you with pleasure. Il Cuore B&B, character and personality in Massa's historical heart.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Property's Favourite Review
One of the loveliest places I’ve stayed in Italy. The breakfast is the best - homemade cakes, tarts, fresh bread, eggs, ham, cheese, fruit, yoghurt and more. All quality products. The dining area is so relaxing and the garden is beautiful. The place felt like home. The beds, linens of quality and the rooms very quiet. Best of all was Babba the cutest little dog who greets you every morning with joy. The B&b is near so many good restaurants and beautiful piazzas. Easy to reach the Cinque Terre by ferry in the summer months as well. I highly recommend! Thank you Daniela and Baeta for being such great hosts!

We booked directly without any issues. The B&B is in the old part of Massa, minutes from Piazza Aranci and Piazza Mercurio but nice and quiet. The church bells in the morning were heart warming. The room was spacious with a king size bed, a good wardrobe, a chest of drawers, a settee and a table with two chairs. The ensuite was excellent. Everything was clean and towels/sheets were changed every 3 days. We remained 10 nights. Our room was on the second floor, at the top. There are marble stairs and no lift which was not a problem for us. Breakfast was served in the garden or inside. Nice and home made cakes, but one can have eggs, cheese and ham. We liked the espresso. There is no parking in the property but we always found free parking a couple of minutes away. Il Cuore will organise your entry permit for the historical part of the town at no charge. The owner, signora Daniela, and the housekeeper, signora Beata, were always helpful and professional. We will definitely return as it was a very enjoyable stay.

Nice cosy hotel with two lovely ladies taking care of your stay and making sure everything is fine for you. Our room was big, so enough space for luggage and moving around. The bed was comfy, slept well. Bathroom big and well equipped with all you need. Overall we had a very pleasant stay. Parking situation - there are some public spaces available for parking around, not directly at the hotel, but if you have a big car- maybe not optimal due to some narrow streets.

Quaint and cozy bed and breakfast with excellent service from start to finish. The rooms are decorated in a lovely manner. The staff is very friendly, attentive and accommodating. My Italian is not so good so it was relief that they do speak English here. Breakfast is served in a lovely garden every morning, the food is delicious and the amenities are plentiful. I would recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone staying in Massa, Pietra Santa or the surrounding areas. Will definitely come back here next time I visit!

We are a group of walkers from Australia. We stayed at this wonderful BnB for 2 nights. Beata and Daniela were great hosts- welcoming, full of information, patient with our Italian language deficiencies, helpful with all our requests and good company. The accommodation in an old house and lovely garden was spacious and comfortable. We were very close to the centre just off the Piazza Mercurio and there were numerous restaurants nearby. A great place to stay!

We spent 6 nights at this wonderful place in Massa, a city which we didnt know much about but managed to surprise us for the best every evening. The B&B is literally a gem from every possible aspects. Both hosts, Beate and Daniela are the most friendly hosts you can find. They help you with anything you need, from parking, beach places to restaurants. They prepare a delicious breakfast with fresh cakes every morning. They even cooked lactose free cakes every morning to account for my intolerances. I found it exceptional as it is quite rare. The B&B is very well located. You can easily park the car 5 minutes walking distance away from the B&B. The hosts helped us with it and it was not a struggle at all. The room is perfectly clean and the service exceptional. We can only highly recommend it and will definitely return.

I’ve spent few days in this B and B and I really felt like I was at home. The staff was really kind and available and the rooms were very clean and chic which made me stay very comfortable; the cakes that they prepare every morning are something delicious and the garden were breakfast is served its something magical. I’ve had an amazing time at cuore and I’m looking forward to come there soon again!

From the moment we arrived until we left we had such a wonderful experience at this amazing place. The room and bathroom were extremely clean and comfortable and ensured that we could rest well while while spending a few days in Massa. The breakfast was delicious and the selection was amazing. This property is located directly in the centre of Massa so the main town square is only about a 2 minute walk from the property. All Covid -19 measures such as mask wearing, extra cleaning , breakfast buffet being served only by staff were followed and enforced which I value highly. The host and staff were very friendly caring people and we really appreciate the super early breakfast they provided us outside of normal breakfast hours. It definitely helped the early start to our long journey home. I recommend anyone wishing to stay in the Massa area or if you are breaking up a long road trip trip to and from the south of Italy to stay at this amazing B&B II Cuore. I would like to thank the staff and host for making our stay so enjoyable. We definitely will return.
