We are a small, one-star hotel that aims to give great value and unique hospitality in its genre.

We do our best to make sure this is exactly your experience here.
Italo Calvino lived for a time in Sanremo and wrote about the atmosphere, places and characteristics in a perfectly unusual way making him a cornerstone of Ligurian culture.
And we love him so much that we want to celebrate his talent, bringing a small piece of his imagery into our rooms, together with that of other Ligurian poets.
