When I started to inquire about rooms in Monterosso for our Sept. trip, I received many , "Sorry, we are full" replies. So when I received a positive response from Il Timone, I was so relieved, I didn't really pay much attention to it's location or the reviews. Well, I got lucky. Il Timone Lerta is a gem.

Just spent 5 nights at Il Timone Lerta and can not praise it enough. Yes, there is a walk up to the accommodation but it's worth it. Every single detail has been thought out here, from the provision of beach towels to the complimentary limoncello for guests to sample. The accommodation has been designed and decorated to a very high,... More

My mum and I just got back from 4 nights at Timone Lerta and we had the best time. The little hotel is excellently located at the top of Monterosso’s old town, so its very quiet and the views are fabulous. Well worth the steps up. The rooms are cute with comfy beds and a great shower, and they’re cleaned... More

Third time staying here in recent years. Exceptionally friendly service from Francesco's Mum and particularly Frederica in our B&B. Everything you would want is there, Wifi, their own mini-laptop if you don't have your own, Air Con, Satellite TV, comfortable beds, lovely breakfasts, clean rooms and excellent service, with rooms cleaned daily. Hence our tendency to return here every year.... More

My family and my finance traveled to Monterosso for 3 days last week. There were 5 of us and we stayed at the Loreto location in the old town section of Monterosso. We rented all 3 of their bedrooms at this location so had the whole place to ourselves. Every room has a tv, air conditioner, refrigerator, and had great... More

Il Timone is actually two different properties in Monterosso, Loreto and Lerta, both located in the old part of town but the former inland towards the road (above the post office) and the latter on the hillside overlooking the main plaza and close to the water. We spent one night at Loreto and two at Lerta. Loreto is essentially a... More

We were very surprised at this location and the friendliness of the staff. This was not a Bed and Breakfast but just the accommodations. We were just foot steps away from the Old part of Monterosso. We were able to do laundry and hang it up to dry. There was a small dorm size refrigerator and an instant coffee maker.... More

Easy to find. Francesco met us and gave us a quick tour, recommended excellent restaurants and things-to-do in the area. The room is on the second floor with a balcony overlooking the main street. The location was just north of the busy area, so it was quiet at night. The room was very comfortable with a small refrigerator, wifi, tv,... More

We stayed 3 nights at the Timone Lerta which is in the old part of Monterosso - we preferred this as it was smaller and more quirkier than the new part of town. Francesco, Frederica and his mother were wonderful hosts! Timone Lerta was spotless and modern with excellent air conditioning. The room was wonderful. It had a beautiful bathroom,... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Il Timone Loreto. We had a room with a balcony overlooking Via Roma street in Montorossa. The location is just a little bit away from the main center of town, and in a more residential district, so if you are looking to be in the middle of activity it might not be for you.... More
