I'm torn about reviewing this hotel as 'poor' as I quite enjoyed my stay here. The reason for the 'poor' rating is because it's 3 star guest house at best, but with a 4 star hotel price tag. The rooms are very, very small and don't appear to have been updated in any way since the 70's. One day someone... More

There's no chandeliers and polished marble, but our stay at the Hotel Baia was memorable for other reasons. For an old hotel built in 1911 this place is more like an old guesthouse - Fawlty Towers style. Our adjoining rooms were small, but clean, with basic fittings and appointments. The view from the window and balcony over the beach and... More

Location was perfect! We stepped off the train & walked 200 meters to the hotel. Beach is right across the street. Our room was small & plain...but the beds were comfy, the shower was great, and we had an amazing view of the beach & ocean. Limited plug-ins for charging electronics. Since we spent very little time in our room,... More

The Hotel Baia in Monterossa al Mare is a very nice, clean hotel. Although the rooms are very plain, you are clearly paying for the location.....across the street from the beach and the sea. The only negative is that the elevator can only be used for handicapped, and suitcases.

Hotel is simple but clean, excellent cleaning by the maids. The location is the best, just on the main street in Monterosso, 20 m from the beach, close to many good restaurants and pizzerias, bakery's and bars, also very close to the railway station. On the down side, no elevator, the breakfast could have had a little more to offer.... More

My friends and I made a reservation at this hotel mostly drawn by the location and reviews. We were given a room with no view, even though we requested a view and have received confirmation about this by Katy. However, the front desk girl, a blond young girl, was sweet and helpful. We stayed there two nights but we didn't... More

We stayed for one night only as a quick beach break from our holiday in Tuscany. We did have some complications in booking the hotel and found it amazing that they insisted we emailed our credit card information. As this hotel had such a great location and a room for 4 of us (2 young boys) we had little choice... More

This is a 3 star hotel and you should set your expectations around that. The location is unbeatable. Right across from the beach, a mere 20 meters from the local bakery and Restaurant Miky, and maybe 100 meters from the train station. Very convenient. We had 2 rooms (not sea view), one for us and one for the kids. Yes,... More

Great location just minutes from the train station and right on the beach in Monterosso. However, that was the only perl. For 160 euros a night our room was old, very basic, very small, and did not had a view. There was a large patio, but it was shared and faced the back so it was not somewhere anyone would... More

Rooms super small. Rude owner and reception. No client attention at all. Very, very, very expensive for the level of the service, infrastructure, size of rooms/beds (compared to European standards, not American) And, again, terrible service and rudeness. Definitely a very bad choice that ruined the whole beginning of our stay in Cinque Terre...
