Hotel Argentina was an excellent choice.

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

Once we decided to go to Riomaggiore we arrange for a room @ Casa Venere(or something like that) from Florence. Well that was a mistake . Moving forward I contacted Mr Angelo @ Villa Argentina from the center of the town he immediately made us feel welcome and now at least I know that we have a room for the night. See it could get a little confusing we you first arrive @ Riomaggiore specially if you have a ton of luggage. When you arrive @ the train station that is not the center of town you have to go thru the tunnel and that takes you to it. There are a lot of places to rent but after 3 pm. I couldn`t reach anyone to help me find a room.

Villa Argentina told us that they will have room for the 3 of us @ 120 E (December09) I agree and started going up the hill. The hotel is SUPER CLEAN, they speak good english and the breakfast was really good as well. The rooms are kind of small but the view that we had allowed us to see the town , the Sea and the most beautiful and longest sunset ever. We ended up staying 3 nights and I will go back and stay there again and again. If dont feel like walking up the hill there are this green buses that will take you up and down for a small fee.

Unique Quality: Great views, super clean, nice staff, Hot towels racks, hot water, Great heating system, hearty breakfast , good capuccinos, safe. and small flat TV`s

Fantastic appartment!

Villa Argentina is a hotel, but it also rents out apartments, and I strongly recommend it.

We were two couples and got an apartment in the middle of summer holiday -05 the same day we called.

It was just great! It was more like a house. It had two floors. Downstairs it was a large kitchen and a livingroom with both sofa, TV and an eatingtable.

The kitchen had everything you might need, including a clothes-washing-machine. And it was large windows and an entrance to a little garden.

In the livingroom it was a great view, that was even better if you went out on the terrace. From here, you are at the top of Riomaggiore and are looking down on everything. A wonderful place to relax, read a book, drink wine and have a wonderful time.

Upstairs there were three bedrooms. Especially one of them was really huge. It was also a good and clean bathroom.

If you are going to Riomaggiore, do not think twice about trying to get this apartment.

Unique Quality: A fantastic view of Riomaggiore.

Directions: At the top of the city.

Best View in the City

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 31, 2002

A "modern" (compared to some penziones in the Cinque Terre) hotel. Helpful staff, friendly & with patience and a sense of humor. Food and wine stocked for guests, and there is light breakfast served in the morning.

Here is the link to the hotel's WEBSITE:

Hotel Villa Argentina

Unique Quality: Perched at the top of the ridge above Riomaggiore. It's about the view.
Most of the rooms in the hotel have a private little sunny terrace with one of the best views in the city. The view from my room (13) was an absolute knockout.
The rooms are simple, clean, and adequate, but the views are breathtaking.

Get ready for a long steep hike up the main street through town to the top of the ridge. But if you get one of the rooms with a view, it will be worth it.

BRING CASH - they do not accept credit cards.

UPDATE 2012 - It appears Villa Argentina now DOES ACCEPT SOME* CREDIT CARDs -
the website now says:
"Accepted cards - Visa, Maestro, CartaSi
The hotel reserves the right to pre-authorize credit cards prior to arrival."
There are still a significant amount of businesses in Riomaggiore that still do not. Have means to keep cash handy for restaurants and shopping.

Directions: From the station, just start walking up the hill. There is also a little bus that shuttles people between the top and bottom of town during the day.
