Hotel Villa Balbi has nice grounds and looks good as you drive up. The suite our parents had in the older section of the hotel was so tired and musty they had to relocate to a very small regular room in the new part. Our...More

We stayed here for a week on a B&B basis. The hotel is made up of the original building (in which our room was located) and a more modern extension. The extension has been well disguised so that it didn't detract from the great surroundings....More

Built around a several hundred year old grand villa this hotel pretty much has it all. The location just across the street from the beach front and the back bordering the old town couldn't be better. The room was VERY nice and large. The bed...More

About
Description
Grand Hotel Villa Balbi is an old aristocratic XVII century villa; it stands on the seafront of Sestri Levante, a few yards only from the beautiful sea of the Gulf of Tigullio, between Portofino and More Cinqueterre. Converted in 1947 into an elegant Hotel, Villa Balbi has elegante and rich interiors, made precious by rare and valuable antique furnishings, tapestries, pictures, precious marble, beautiful parquet and finely finished ceilings. The Balbi palace, once the mansion of noble, aristocratic families, site of historical events and abode of famous men and women, still keeps all its charm today. A quiet and very comfortable Hotel, with careful and professional service. With its own pool, private beach, restaurant and parking area is the ideal location to spend a relaxing holiday. Less
