Oyster Hotel Review

Hotel Miramare Sestri Levante


A sophisticated, modern hotel with a cozy feel and magnificent sea views

High vaulted ceilings and colorful stained glass adorns the small, modern lobby, which has a few antique patterned chairs for seating. There are plenty of relaxed places for guests to unwind throughout the hotel, including the elegant Bellavista Room, which has a contemporary white rug over hardwood floors with white couches and a fireplace creating a cozy ambience. Arched windows make the space bright and there is vibrant classic art on the walls. Floor-to-ceiling windows in the polished Restaurant Baia del Silenzio offer excellent sea views while the contemporary Karma Bar is crisp white-and-dark-wood space, with twinkling track lighting over a dark bar topped with tan marble. A glass ceiling and glass walls encompass the panoramic terrace, which has marvelous water views as well as an outdoor wicker seating area. Guests here are mostly couples, though a few families pass through as well.

Piazza Sant’Antonio and Galleria Rizzi, a villa turned art gallery, take five minutes to reach on foot. Lavagna, a charming, neighboring town with a bustling port, takes about 10 minutes to reach by car, while the north end of the Cinque Terre is about an hour away by car. Santa Margherita Ligure is a 20- to 25-minute drive and is home to Santa Margherita Ligure Castle. Genoa is a 45-minute drive from the hotel.
