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

Other reviewers have reminded us that this is a PENSIONE not a 3-Star hotel. True to that I'll refrain from complaining about the material pleasures I missed. Instead I'll say that the host (Francesca) is wonderfully helpful and energetic. She helped us a lot with information and suggestions. Our room (#7) is on the second story facing the street below....

Didn't how what to expect, but I didn't expect much. This place is not the Ritz, but I have been pleasantly surprised. The lady in the reception area is very nice and helpful but short on English. The room is a very comfortable size with air conditioning and a toilet and shower. The shower is crowded for one person, but... More

Which was good for us with a lot of luggage and a sprained ankle. And ear muffles. Vernazza is a small and lovely village so everything is nearby. The room was clean, but small with an even smaller bathroom. We accidentally left a few things behind, sun glasses, credit cards and a shirt, which were picked up three days later... More

Conveniently located to the bus stop and train station. Our room faced the back so we had no issues with noise that other people complained about (room 3). That being said the room was small and the bathroom even smaller. The problem with the bathroom was that given its size the shower curtain invariably either pushed out from the wall... More
