Nothing was bad about our stay at Hotel Carla. The only negative was that we had to leave and return home to the United States. We were happy it was our last destination before we returned home. It was the perfect ending to a lovely vacation!
The hotel itself has been completely renovated on the interior with beautiful comtemporary furnishings, sleek modern amenities, and a dining area for breakfast and dinner that is comparable to many five star hotels. And let's talk breakfast which is buffet style included in the stay. The breakfast is served with fine dishes and fresh linen and an attentive staff that will do their best to meet your every wish. Some of the items included are croissants, rolls, cereals, select salami, ham, fresh cheese, fruit, yogurt, fruit juices, hot chocolate, coffee, pastries, cakes, and more. We have been to many bed and breakfasts, but this one is one of the best. We loved that the hotel is set in the middle of the charming town of Levanto, conveniently located within walking distance from the train station and 15 minutes from the boat taxi. Both train and boat will have you in the famous Cinque Terre before you know it. We preferred being able to go to the touristy towns when we wanted, yet could get away from the hustle and bustle when we wanted to as well. And finally, the owner of the hotel was the kindest and most gracious person. He was very hands on and made sure we were well taken care of from beginning to end. We had a series of misfortune before we arrived and he immediately provided a respite and haven for us. It was the peace and solace we needed from our weary travel. He went way above and beyond in assisting and helping us. For that we will always be grateful.
