Nicoletta was very friendly and such a good cook! Her omelettes are awesome. The room was nice and we enjoyed the terrace one evening as well. Nicoletta was very knowledgable and gave us the train schedule and suggested itineraries and places to eat which all turned out great! Thanks much to her. I recommend this B&B if staying in Monterosso.

We just wanted to comment on how amazing Nicoletta, the owner of this property is. SHE is what makes the place special. She was waiting for us at the train station for our arrival and arranged a taxi to take us to her place (which isn't too far away in the center of town) - this was so appreciated after... More

Our hostess at this lovely and quaint B&B is delightful and she totally made the experience special for me. She is a dynamo!! The B&B has been totally renovated and updated, as this is the home where our hostess Nicoretta was born...as was her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Nicoretta knows EVERYONE in Monterossa, and will direct you to the best... More

Old towns with minimal choice of up to date hotels. This is a 4 room B&B but the owner makes you feel like you are the most important guest she ever had. Parking is a problem in Monterosso and the only parking garage is outside the vehicle access area. We got the last space and it was just after lunch... More

Our stay with Nicoletta at La Poesia was truly delightful. From the moment we exited the Train Station to find a taxi, arranged by Nicoletta, until our departure, our hostess did everything she could to make our stay in Monterosso the best it could be. Upon arrival at La Poesia, Nicoletta provided us snacks and Prosecco while she gave us... More

My husband I stayed for two nights while visiting Cinque Terre. We came in by train and NIcoletta came and picked us up from the train station. She then offered us snacks, baked goods, and something to drink. It was very sweet of her. The room was small but very clean. We could open our windows and see the quiet... More

Nicoletti, the owner, is a doll. Bent over backwards to be so kind to us. We got the very last parking place in the garage and she helped us drag our luggage through the tiny streets. She served us refreshments as soon as we collapsed on her terrace...and her breakfasts was really good. The rooms are dark, the A/C noisy,... More

Stayed in the 'Giglio Rosso' suite which was beautiful. The room was large, bright, clean, quiet and we'll air conditioned as was the bathroom. The owner, Nicoletta, and her mother were born in this room. She was so kind and gracious-even gave us a parting gift. Breakfast was delicious/home made omelets along with anything and everything else imaginable. Only minor... More

A lovely little spot with a charming and friendly hostess. The rooms are a tad small, but you're not going to be sitting in your room in Monterosso, are you? There's a beautiful back garden where breakfast is served, and it's available for guests any time. Breakfast was delightful!
