This hotel was out of the way for traveling daily to the Cinque Terre. No shuttle service offered during our stay. Walking was dangerous and taxi's expensive. Rooms were extra small, not very clean and noisy. The personnel and food were lackluster.

This hotel is at the top of the hills and did not offer any shuttle service in early October. The room was very basic and didn't even provide a rug or mat in the bathroom. The bathroom was so tiny you had to sit sideways on the toilet and you hit the shower faucet if you turned around in the... More

On my recent trip to Cinque Terre we booked at this small hotel. It is a distance from the city of Monterosso which turned out to be an advantage. The crowds and noise in the city were too much and this place was very quiet.Part of the charm was the young proprietors of the hotel and their staff who made... More

This charming hotel is located up in the hills outside of the town Monterosso. It is charming, very clean and peaceful. One can sit outside and just enjoy being there. The owners and staff are very friendly, helpful and accommodating. They have frequent shuttles which take you to town from which you can get the boat or train to surrounding... More

This hotel makes for a very interesting review. At times i was a little put off by the somewhat brusque manner of one of the staff - i only recall seeing a total of three people on the staff - but i came to realize that while their attentiveness was not sugar coated, it was certainly adequate. Furthermore, i really... More

The staff is excellent and the rooms comfortable. Great breakfast service. We were at the beach when they offered lunch and dinner so we didn't get to try it but I'm sure it was good. They provide an hourly lift back and forth from the beach. Very quiet at night. WiFi service is offered but we found that it didn't... More

We stayed for only one night, but it was a lovely place to be. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There was a great outside patio where we had lunch from their restaurant and a wonderful breakfast in the inside dining room the following morning. Their shuttle back and forth to town was on time and very helpful. Our... More

My sister and I stayed for three nights and loved every minute of our stay. The family that owns this property is the sweetest and nicest family that we met in Italy. Definitely make sure that you strike up conversation with the staff. LOCATION: This hotel is off the beaten path and is NOT by the sea. It is on... More

This is a B&B tucked away on top of the hill in Monterosso, the riviera town in Cinque terre. If you like staying away in a quiet place from all the craziness of the beach life,this is your stay. A few things we liked about this hotel are: it was not crowded, you felt like you are in someone's home,... More

Well located in the historic area of Monerosso, the largest town on the Cinque Terre trail, the hotel has a great patio bar/breakfast area overlooking a charming stone street. Our room was in an unattached, convenient annex. Breakfast was very complete and included fresh fruits and home made pastries. The reception staff was helpful in offering the best traditional places... More
