This boutique hotel sits at the top of Monterosso cliffs and enjoys a spectacular view of the the gulf; location is excellent: quiet but just a few hundred meters from the village center where you can find bar, restaurants and markets. Staff is very friendly, polite and professional. The Junior suite was fully equipped with usual amenities (wi-fi, bar, TV)... More

Hotel Porto Roca is worth every penny! The staff are extremely friendly and accommodating. From the moment we arrived to the last minute they went out of their way to ensure our happiness. At no charge a taxi picked us up at the train station and saved us the walk up a slightly steep hill with our luggage. We needed... More

There are a few things you expect from a 4-star hotel, like having a properly prepared bathroom upon check-in. This is not what we got when we arrived in our room....no toilet paper or complimentary toiletries. The bin and toilet brush were perched precariously on top of the closed toilet lid. Quite disgraceful considering the exorbitant room charge. Also, the... More

If you are looking for a great place to stay and you can afford it, this is it. Great hotel, room with patio with spectacular view over Monte Rosso. Friendly staff, great swimming pool, good breakfirst, short distanse to Cinque Terre. Highly recommend!

The Cinque Terre is not the hidden gem it once was, but its still one of the most beautiful places we have ever visited. This is not an area filled with luxury hotels, you should come here for the stunning beauty of nature. Bring your hiking boots, and be prepared for a pretty serious hike. If your not in good...

We had been in Italy for ten days by the time we stayed here. We LOVED the location and the view. We stayed in an upper level room overlooking the sea. It was worth every penny. Watched the sunset every evening and it was very private on our balcony. Cinque Terre is stunning so this hotel (although up a hike... More

Breakfast was served in a diningroom looking towards Monterosso . The breakfast was first class.We never had dinner here so cannot comment on this. The... More

Cinque Terra and especially Monterosso was fabulous! It was our favourite place in Italy. We stayed at the Porto Roca for three nights as part of a tour so I can't speak for the value of the hotel but I can say we loved staying there. Outside of it being at the top of a steep hill (part of the... More

This hotel is very nice - clean with mostly friendly staff (the exception was a very surly hotel taxi driver). As other reviewers have noted, the only way in and out of the hotel is via a very steep, curvy walkway that is too narrow for most vehicles. The views are beautiful and the hotel common areas and grounds are... More
