There is no doubt that the views from Porto Roca are outstanding but a hotel shouldn't just rely on that fact alone. As the only 4 star hotel on the Cinque Terre they have a monopoly which they trade on. The bathrooms need to be brought into the 21st century and the shower recess is so small only a very... More

This hotel is perched on top of one of the highest peaks in the village of Monterosso, which means the best views in town! The decor is dated but so is the rest of Monterosso, but the views you will get in the 'sea view' rooms Are absolutely breath-taking. Breakfast is everything you want in a brekky, and the wait...

I stayed here over a weekend in April 2013. The hotel is purchased in the cliffs with gorgeous ocean views. They have a buffet breakfast each morning with everything you could want. The rooms are clean with room service, friendly staff and a car will pick you up from the public parking area. The hotel is directly on the Blue... More

We stayed here last summer in a room overlooking the sea. Stunning views. Great balcony. Food here is beyond fantastic. It is right at the entrance to the hiking trails. Got lots of exercise walking up to the hotel every day since it is up a steep hill- works off some of the Italian cooking though. Very close to the... More

Great hotel, the best on Cinque Terre. I had a top floor room with a huge terrace. I was traveling alone so the size of the bedroom didn't really matter but I could have had a party with 20 people on the terrace. I could have sun or shade any time of the day out there. My view was spectacular!... More

Most of my reviews are long overdue--sorry. A hectic schedule never allowed the time for me to write reviews after travelling. But due to the fact that Trip Advisor has ALWAYS helped us with our itineraries, I’m finally making time. This hotel was recommended by our travel agent. We stayed hear 3 nights. We arrived by train after flying into... More

Read some mixed reviews on Trip Advisor, but booked anyway because view of the sea was one of our top criteria. They totally hit the mark with such a spectacular view and with beautiful sunsets as well. We requested top floor, where yes the rooms are smaller, but the terrace is huge and we were on the far end unit... More

A great location, fabulous pool area and perfect sunsets can't overcome terrible rooms, poor food and rates that are twice the price of any other Cinque Terre hotel. They say they are fully booked and have no need to upgrade their hotel. We left early and moved to a spectacular place at 110 euros less.

The hotel's location was spectacular. Reserve early, we tried twice to get in at the last moment and couldn't. The hotel is perched up high on a hill so the walk is vigorous. The staff was very accommodating. Wait staff superb. Food at the restaurant was very good, Restaurant Miki was the best meal we had. Cantina Miki very good... More

This hotel over looks the bay with wonderful views in every direction. The pool and gardens are relaxing. The restaurant is excellent. They even offer walking sticks to hike the village path. Lovely place.
