I am not a picky person, and I have stayed in some pretty bad places, but at least they were cheap. This place was the worst, and expensive to boot. Where to begin? As another guest mentioned, you have to voice all complaints within 15 minutes of entering the premises. I wish I had known that ahead of time, although...

We had read reviews of La Casa di Venere, and so were not expecting too much, and were aware of having to visit the office in the main street of Riomaggiore to book in, and not go direct to the accommodation. All in all the 2 night stay went smoothly. The office is just a short walk from the wharf...

Now we are not choosy travellers. We travelled on a budget and as such were realistic with what our money would buy. However, this place definitely was not worth the money we paid. Basically, we stayed in what could be best described as someone's attic that was quickly furnished in order to make a quick buck out of the thriving...

The apartment is in a medieval building, so plenty of stairs. We were situated at the back of the building in a cavern-like apartment with only one small window. Furniture was modern, IKEA style. It cost more than our previous Albergo, which had plenty of space, a balcony, breakfast and helpful staff. It also cost more than our 4 star...

Back in April I was looking for where to stay in Riomaggiore. I inquired with a number of places including Casa di Venere. I must have needed to put a credit card number on their inquiry form, because EVEN THOUGH I NEVER HEARD BACK FROM THEM and wound up reserving and staying at Michielini Rooms (very nice) THEY CHARGED MY...

On arrival, we were told they did not take Visa and insisted we pay cash or stay elsewhere. This was less than convenient but we were willing to pay cash happily enough. The rooms were okay and location beautiful - Cinque Terre is hard to beat. A few weeks after we left they charged my Visa account and they have...

There is almost no correlation between this property in reality and as represented in their photos. Our room looked nothing like the photos: dingy, dark and in ill-repair...outlets hanging out of the wall, door on the rather strange shower falling off. As for the surroundings, you are in an alley so narrow you can touch the buildings on both sides....

We stayed at Casa di Venere for one night in early June. Thankfully it was just one night. Our room was spacious but it smelled horribly. It smelled like a cat had sprayed in there. It was so bad that we had to buy some air freshener at a nearby store. The management didn't seem too concerned when we told...

La Casa di Venere was interesting. When you get to Riomaggiore, you don't go to the hotel, you go to their office, which is on via Colombo, where they will great you (and hopefully have you're room...not us.. they lost our reservation, but gave us a better room, which was nice).

Fabulous place to stay, recently redecorated , a very comfortable place to stay. Our room was more spacious than many we stayed in in Italy. Lots of stairs and steep roads to climb up, along with everywhere else in Riomaggiore, this is what Riomaggiore is. We would have loved to have been able to stay longer, perhaps on the next...
