Nice & clean. Good location - close to the beach and within a walking distance to the center. There is a bakery & a supermarket right across the street. A little noisy as it is on a busy street. The staff was pleasant - quick check in & check out.

Lovely stopover or a perfect getaway
The area is within 10 min walk from town centre. The receptionist was very helpful amd accomodating. A grocery store just across the street. Room was lovely, clean, airconditioned. Really enjoyed our stay on the way further into Italy.

Just about adequate
This was a last minute booking and my budget was small so my expectations were not very high. The hotel is a 20 minute walk from the centre of Sanremo. If, like me, you are unfortunate enough to get a room close to the adjacent petrol station, you might find your room is not dark enough for an undisturbed sleep. The room is basic but clean. My mattress was very hard. The free breakfast is adequate but only one cup of coffee offered! Overall, I am satisfied with my stay.

Very nice family-run hotel 5 mins walk from beach.
This was a very pleasant and enjoyable stay in a nice family-run hotel: the service was excellent and friendly and the ambience welcomingly individual. Hotel Rio is not a clone of the faceless chain hotels: it has individual decor and a very traditional feel, which I like immensely. The Hotel Rio is a short walk from the fantastic beaches in Sanremo, and also a 10-15 minute walk from the centre of the town, with its fabulous restaurants and amazing medieval historical sector. For me Sanremo is the perfect spot on the Riviera for both a beach holiday, for shopping, and for exploring a beautiful historical Italian city. Overall the Hotel Rio is a very well-priced and good value choice.

Would not stay again
Sanremo is beautiful. The owners and staff are friendly however the hotel needs major renovations. Having to pull an iron gate closed on our balcony , lock it , pull a metal roll shutter down and lock that too has much to be desired. The view of the gas station directly under the balcony and "women of the night" across the street also was not what we expected. People walking the hall ways at 2,3 & 4 in the morning was loud and a major disruption. I would reconsider booking this "hotel"

Clean and inexpensive
This is truly a 2 star -and not a 3 star- hotel. Everything is old and lacks charm. The shower is so small that I literally had to squeeze in. And I'm not THAT big. That said the proprietor is charming, and the place is clean. By the time I had paid for the Internet (EUR 10 for 24 hours online) and the extra for the dog (EUR 10/day), it was close to what I paid a day later for a real four star hotel in Imperia, just a few kilometers East. A lovely city also that said, less hectic than Sanremo.

More than Basic, and great location
I was at the hotel for business - not for summer vacation at the beach. If you require WiFi in your room to work during the day, make sure that you request one of those rooms; several do not have access to internet. The owner-managers are lovely and very helpful in every way. Certainly worth a return visit.
