Terrible staff - extremely rude and unhelpful. Terrible shower facilities - after every shower, the entire bathroom floor was flooded with water.

Great location right in the heart of Riomaggiore. Great 2 for 1 drinks at the bar attached for hotel guests.


If you are hoping for a good customer service, avoid La Zorza! I actually have changed my opinion on Italian people due to their staff. Very unfriendly, unwelcoming and cold, especially the ladies serving breakfast. Never seen a smile on their faces. Running a bar and hotel at the same time has definitely cost the customer service. No reception area, so to check in and order breakfast guests had to queue up with other tourists coming just for a drink. Very disappointed!

This is a hotel, really, with a friendly staff and hip vibe, as other reviewers have noted, but I am middle aged and traveling alone and felt at home. The rooms are comfortable with all amenities, good sound-proof windows if you want to shut out the street chatter and bar noise. Breakfast is standard European. It is the nearest lodging to train station, just 3 up to the right after exiting tunnel into town. I sat with a drink a pitied those dragging cases up steep hill past me.

We were two girls (25) traveling and it was the perfect location for us. The hotel bar is the place to be in the evening, you can meet lots of tourists and locals. The bar staff is amazing too! Only thing is that if you don't want to be in the bar and you are close (our room was right next to the bar) it gets very noisy. Apart from that good stay!!


Fantastic stay. The breakfast was exceptional and the bar was a fun spot to hang out after a long day of hiking. The bathroom flooded often during showers, but it drained quickly. Because our room shared a wall with the bar, music was audible into the early hours of the night. Overall, a fantastic stay for a young couple. Would return in a heartbeat!
