The accommodation was clean but very small and close to trains which made it noisy . The hosts were not very good on communications on walks and other essential tourist information. The breakfast was ok

We stayed for three nights here, and the location is really great. As vernazza is really a tourist attraction and busy, this accommodation is just on the other side of the train station, where hardly anyone is! But the rooms are a bit noisy, as you hear the train the whole night, and the churchbells (which is very near) start... More

Stayed here two nights. Pensione sorisso is a very nice place to stay in Vernazza. As almost any place in town,it's a bit close to the train station and therefore a bit noisy, even at night. However, the staff is very friendly, the rooms are clean,and the bathrooms modern looking and cute. Very much recommend this place.

This boutique hotel is located a short walk from the train station, close to the Main Street in town, and the entrance to the trail to Corneglia. We enjoyed our stay here very much. It is very much a pensione, but very well appointed. Our room overlooked the hills, and the church bells tolling the hours added to the charm.... More

We stayed 2 nights in this place (against Rick Steve's advice). The main reason was the close proximity to the train station and our phobia of stairs that the other rooms better view required. Paid 70 Euro for a double with shared bathroom. There was a basin with water in the room, so that made the trips to the bathroom... More

Although Rick Steves wrote a bad review on this pensione, I suspect it hasn't been updated in some time. This place was great value for money, great location, great breakfast, and wonderful staff. I was pleasantly surprised with huge, bathroom towels that smelled like they were hung outside to dry, which they were. Fabulous remote operated air conditioner and fan,... More

Cinque Terre has become an odd place. It must have been the best spot on the planet to enjoy all the good of the simple slow life, but is now soaked with tourists from all far corners who only go there to tick off on the list "places you need to see before you die". So they take the train... More

We love this place. Francesca, Aldo and Graziella are helpful, generous and welcoming. It's noisy from the trains, but we want to help Vernazza return to its former self. So: Go! Climb the trail, experience the wonders that you can only find in Vernazza!

I rented a single room for 3 nights. The room was small and basic, but very clean. My room was cleaned each day with fresh towels delivered. There was no internet in the room, but the lobby had internet 24/7. I had read the reviews and packed ear plugs, so the trains going by did not bother me. I had... More
