First we weren't expecting much as its 2 stars. Just cleanliness. Each day the towels were changed and bed made. The bathroom has a horrible smell coming from it. There was no aircon which was fine as the fan was enough. The lady we met on our arriving day was an older lady and very rude. Our booking said breakfast... More

We stayed here because there was absolutely nothing left. After arrived my friend as I were greeted extremely rudely by the owner, then taken up flights of stairs to a room with only a fan and a horrible smell. When I asked about breakfast as it was meant to be included in our stay she said no breakfast it's 10... More

2 stars for how clean the room was. Otherwise we will not return or recommend. Breakfast was ten euro EACH the cappuccino was the best part, otherwise the selection was scarce considering how much it cost the two of us. Yogurt and full pieces of fruit down the street are only €3.00 + €1.50 for a cappuccino. Train was loud... More

This is a budget hotel and for us we were hoping for a little better. We stayed 3 nights. Rooms were clean and serviced every day. We had ensuite Bathroom which was very small with limited space for toiletry storage. The bidet is a waste of space in our opinion. No bar fridge, tea/coffee facilities. Trains are noisy although we... More

We booked two rooms at Pensione Sorriso. Francesca was so kind and welcoming! Our rooms were comfortable, clean and neat. One room (#25?) backed to the Vernazzola river, that allowed a delightful sound of water when the windows were open. This pensione was perfect for access to the beach activities, hiking, the train, and bus connections to San Bernadino and... More

Had a really pleasant three nights in Pensione Sorriso. Room was clean and the staff was extremely friendly. Really good breakfast! Only con was shared bathroom, but the bathroom itself was really clean and spacious so after all it wasn't that bad. I highly recommend Pensione Sorriso!

This is a wonderful hotel that we stayed at a number of years ago before the flooding in Vernazza. I don't know what their status is now. Their rooms are very comfortable. They also serve a wonderful breakfast that includes a variety of fruits, yogurts, meats and cheeses and wonderful cappacinos. They pensione is located above the train station but... More

I have only recently started to post on Tripadvisor, and was curious to look back at some places we had stayed. I was surprised at some of the negative postings about this wonderful inn. My wife and I were there to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary and had a wonderful stay. Yes the rooms were on the smaller side, but... More

Stayed here on a weekend visit to Cinque Terre! Very clean and very friendly. Located right next to the Varnazza train station and the hiking trail that connects Vernazza with Corniglia. Great restaurants close by. Train was a bit noisy but nothing we couldn't handle. Would definitely stay here again.

Francesca was delightful and very accommodating. I had taken 4 trains to get there and we had a break in the rain, so as soon as I checked in I took off for the town. The room was on the second floor over looking a garden. Once I got back to the room I noticed a strong smell of mildew.... More
