I was sorry we could not stay longer. We were having some issues with the trains the evening we were supposed to arrive. We called the hotel and they assured us that our room would be available and to call when we arrived. After a horrible train experience, we finally made it to Monterosso. To walk out of the train...

Unfortunately we only spent one night here, but this B & B is in a great location, less than a minute walk to the beach. Room was a bit small for 2 adults and a child, but that is the norm in Europe. Check in / out was quick an efficient. Good Breakfast.

Unfortunately, my wife and I were only able to stay here for one night during our honeymoon, but it was amazing! Our room was the Gigante, which is in a separate location from the hotel itself. It is a short walk from the lobby, and can be a bit tedious up multiple flights of stairs if you have a lot... More

Just a beautiful hotel with excellent service. We stayed one night in Carmeti and one night in the family apartment: the staff moved our belongings for us after the first night. Breakfast in the morning was lovely. When we checked out Sunday morning, we still wanted to spend our day at the beach. They let us leave our bags in... More

Our room, the Ca Gigante, was in a separate location from the inn. A bit up the hill with over 50 steps to reach it. In the winter or the rain, these steps and the locations would have been less than ideal. The room itself, however, was charming. Super soft sheets, great toiletries, sparkling clearn bathroom and a fabulous balcony... More

After constant reading we decided to center our home base in Monterosso .I chose this hotel because of its proximity to beaches ,travelers photos and nice emails from Claudia, who runs the nine unit hotel. Her quick responses to various questions was enlightening. We arrived late in the afternoon ,but they were awaiting our arrival. With a smile and quick... More

We stayed 3 nights in this beautiful little hotel and loved it. It was very quiet and the breakfast was sensational. We also loved the fact that there were cakes available all day for the guests - it was a lovely touch. The only thing to note is that Monterosso has an old part and new(ish) part of the town... More

We absolutely loved the B & B and the staff was exceptional. My husband and I stayed at the Gigante with our 7 year old and our 1 year old for 5 days. The photos are an accurate representation of the rooms and our accommodations suited our family's needs perfectly. The rooms are clean and well appointed. Anna and Claudia... More

We loved the locanda. Our enquiry about to get there from the station was answered promptly and made us feel confident about how we had to drag our bags from the station. It's only 5 mins away. Anna greeted us on arrival and explained the hotel facilities, the walks provided a train and boat timetable. We slept well and breakfast... More

We found the staff very welcoming and accommodating throughout our stay. After initial concerns about how noisy our room was (located adjacent to front door which automatically slammed when people enter/leave) we were promptly and pleasantly moved to another room which did not have the same problems. Once this happened we found all aspects go our stay to be excellent.... More
