Travelled with my girlfriend this April and had a very nice stay. The room was superb. It is a little different in that the room was not connected to the building where breakfast and reception are, but the receptionist who was very friendly walked us to the room and the rooms are very warm and pleasant. Great breakfast. The only... More

We stayed in one of the separate rooms, 5 minutes walk from main reception and breakfast room. Room was nice and clean with balony overlooking the sea (shame for some building in front of it). Personnel was friendly and useul with information: nice idea to provide small snacks in the building away from the main one. We could park our... More

we stayed here recently and stayed at the main hotel. they have other rooms around town which makes it interesting if you book a room. our room was nice and clean. breakfast was very nice, the cappuccino hot and tasty. Monterosso is one of the few towns you can drive to in Cinque Terra. next time we will probably train... More

Torrential storm and flooding closed all the restaurants in town. The owners of this property organized on short notice to create in the hotel an incredible meal for those guests unable to leave the property for dinner. Didn't miss anything...... from linen tablecloths, wine glasses, gourmet and delicious meal and incredible service. The wait staff and chefs were brought in... More

We enjoyed everything about our stay at this small and lovely hotel. Our room was very modern but small, but was ground floor with its own patio which made up for the small room. The staff were so welcoming and helpful, and the location is quiet, yet half a block from the beach - perfect! We met the owners and... More

I opted for the apartment off the property because it offered a parking space, which was wonderful. The staff were so pleasant and accomdating, but the apartment is advertised for 4 ppl and I'm so glad it was only my husband and me because the apt was very small and offered very little privacy. The breakfast room was lovely and... More

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
