its a pleasant place to stay. nicely decorated room and bathroom, fresh and clean. all necessities provided. warm and friendly hosts, very helpful. very close to the railway station and main street but still in the quieter part of town. wifi worked well only in the lobby, not in the rooms. buffet breakfast available but not included in room price....

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

I researched this accommodation and emailed several times before making a booking. I wasn't disappointed. We stayed in May 2013. My husband and I had a simple but beautiful double room with access to the garden and my mother had a small single room in the annexe which is directly across the street from the main building. Breakfast is basic... More

Good value, lots of places along the cinque terre are over priced, but this was about right. Basic accommodation, friendly staff, and clean. Didn't hear the train noise with the windows closed. One complaint is that is was hard to find even though it was right beside the train tracks. They need a sign, but I think they are working... More

We had an incredible stay at the Pensione in August 2011. Breakfast was out of this world. Room was very clean. Owner was most gracious and friendly. We'll forever have fond memories of sitting on the patio, overlooking Vernazza. Love, love, love and hopefully one day will come back.

We had the most lovely stay at Pensione Sorriso in September 2011. We were afforded very gracious hospitality at the front reception desk. We arrived without a reservation and were so fortunate to take what I think was the last room in Vernazza. Our room, which we now wonder about, had a lovely placement up some steps from the breakfast... More

I stayed here one night in Vernazza and walked into there in the AM to book that night. My room was up alot of stairs, clean with a very clean shared bathroom. The shower is three feet off the floor on a wooden platform but the place was spotless, but this is not for the disabled or can't climb traveler.... More

We have stayed in hotels that are rated more stars than this hotel, so we were skeptical. However after seeing the rooms, and the facilities, we were extremely surprised that this hotel is not rated higher. The room and shared bathroom was extremely clean, the included breakfast was amazing, and the staff courteous! We will definitely stay there agin the... More

This great message gives me the chance to explain why we are just 1 star (annex fontana vecchia) and 2 stars (main building and DIP.2 ,just in front of the main building). The main reason is that we don't offer all the rooms with private bathroom.13 rooms have private bathroom and 6 rooms (3 rooms in the main building and... More
