The location is quite a hike up many stairs, but the views you get make it well worth it. The rooms are nice and clean. You feel like you are truly living the local life. Breakfast in the morning was delicious on the roof top terrace.

This is the best place you can stay at in Cinque Terre, without doubt! Francesco, his wife and his mother are very friendly hosts. They served us the most delicious breakfast in the most beautiful patio. Expect 5 star service including welcome Lemoncello, beach towels, umbrella, books etc. The window in the room that opens to the sky is heavenly.

We loved the location of this place. We stayed at the Il Timoneloreto. It had 2 small flights of stairs. It was not the one with a roof top breakfast. It was located in the center of the old town. It was clean and comfy. There were lovely restaurants close to this place. The owner gave good recommendations on places... More

My husband and I agreed - this was our favorite place we stayed on our honeymoon! We stayed at the Il Timone Lerta property. Francesco was extremely helpful in orienting us when we arrived. The rooms were clean and beds were very comfortable. Breakfast was great with amazing views! I couldn't recommend more.

My husband and I stayed at this sweet B & B and had a fantastic time. The rooms are very clean and the breakfast was made to order on the roof top balcony. It is up on the hill so you have wonderful views of Monterosso. We met some locals who have lived there their entire lives and had a... More

Spent 3 nights in this heavenly B&B. Breakfast served on the rooftop patio was one of my favorite vacation (3 weeks) experiences. The first time walking up the 106 steps was "alarming" but from then on.....exhilarating. Room was very roomy and our view from the room was of the hills full of lemon trees and life. Would return in a... More

We stayed in Il Timone Lerta (also in Monterosso/same owner - different property). It is a beautiful B&B at the top of an extra 100+ step climb - the views were worth every step! Francesco is the owner and was so welcoming, along with Frederika who, together with Francesco's mother, served the most amazing breakfasts each morning out on the... More

You get everything you could ever want from a Cinque Terre hotel - great service, wonderful, quiet and clean room, great location and beautiful views! My husband and I arrived in Monterosso (which by the way, we highly recommend as your home base for any visit to the Cinque Terre) and met Francesco at the Fast Bar which is on... More

I think this was the cleanest and best maintained B&B/Hotel we ever stayed at. You could see how every attention to detail was considered in the furnishing, bathrooms and common areas. The breakfast was on the Terrace overlooking Monterroso and cooked to order by Francesca's wonderful family. We had just left a 4 star hotel prior to coming here and... More

We originally planned to stay for two nights, but the experience was just so overwhelming that we booked an additional night. Francesco, the host is a very pleasant, hard-working, accommodating young man. After meeting him at the Fast bar, he escorted us to our room in such a leisurely fashion so as to give us pointers on what to see... More
