This place is great if you want to get away from the busy crowds of Monterosso. This is a mountain setting with peaceful surroundings and mountain views. There are shuttles that run to and from town to this hotel and usually run every 30 to 45 mins. Easy and reliable. The food is great at the restaurant and the staff... More

When you are on a mountain, the word 'hotel' is hard to define. Mon Alto is in perfect location. Drive south, you can head to the 5 terres with some mountain rally (Don't drift). Drive North, you can reach Monterosso downtown and up. When Jonathan tells you downtown parking is full, trust him. Mon Alto has free shuttle to downtown... More

I found the hotel and the hospitality of the people attending it, to be very nice, given that I was travelling on my own. They made every effort to make me comfortable, and to help me know where I could get to various locations. I found their food and generosity very satisfying. Thank you for a nice visit.

Fab little place that we stumbled across by accident, lovely clean room with a great view. Extremely friendly and helpful staff too. They have a shuttle service which runs to and from the town. Great price too compared to the main town.

The site / trip advisor pics are a bit misleading (it's cute, but not THAT cute). It's pretty far up in the hills, which would be fine if there was some trade off w/ proximity to the beach & restaurants, but there's not. Yes, there's a shuttle (a local taxi service van) but it comes and goes at very odd... More

We recently stayed here for our honeymoon as a base for visiting the area. The location is at the top of the hill away from the busy centre and the shuttle service was good. The hotel itself was very quiet and relaxing. The breakfast was really disappointing in terms of offering with some dry cakes with plenty of flies, some... More

I reserved this hotel online as a base for our four day visit to Monterosso. The hotel is a hostel like facility a good distance outside of the actual town of Monterosso. If you are actually hoping to see Monterosso or have access to the other towns, this is definitely not the place to stay. The shuttle schedule was a... More
