I have read some other reviews complaining about the lack of service and uncleanliness which I think is ridiculous. We paid 60 euro a night for a private ensuite room (and quite a large room!) in VERNAZZA, where it is difficult to find reasonably priced hotels and is the favourite among many travellers of the Cinque Terre, and we had...

I went to Cinque Terre in June this year and stayed in Vernazza during my 2 days there. I have to say that Vernazza is one of the most beautiful villages among them! I was so lucky to be able to book a room in this hotel. As I travelled alone there are not many good choices in the whole... More

This restaurant had terrific food. We ate inside because it was raining but I would highly recommend eating outside because you can view the harbor. The only negative note is that after lunch we walked around for an hour. By then the rain had stopped so we sat down outside and wanted to order coffee. They refused to let us... More

My wife & I stayed there for 3 days in September 2013. When we checked in we were offered 10% discount for guests, in their adjoining restaurant . We took up the offer on the first night. When we were seated I told the waiter we were staying in their hotel. I paid the bill (for an overpriced & ordinary... More

Of all of the 5 towns in the cinque terre, we loved Vernazza the most by far! We were really glad we stayed there. We went to the hotel bar and said we were checking in. At that point, a bartender walked us up some never ending stairs to our building. If you stay here, dont bring a rolly suitcase,... More

There may be no finer location in Vernazza than one of the balcony rooms at Gianni Franzi. The beds squeak, no breakfast, staff indifferent, repairs needed in many areas. I would stay there again as the outside terrace is a once in a lifetime experience of the Med but do not expect ANYTHING from the staff. The lights went out... More

We visited the hotel last month due to a review of the Slow Food book "Osterie d' Italia. We have usually been very fortunate with this book's recommendations. This one however, was completely off the mark. The pension (this is not a restaurant) is in the middle of nowhere with a nice view. The review in the Slow Food book... More

Great location if you want to stay in one of the quieter areas of Cinque Terra.. Perfect area right by the water. Breakfast was very nice on a lovely terrace with a great view. Does have a lot of stairs but we found most things in Europe do. Only negative is I think the staff are very busy and it... More

There are lots of stairs to climb and it's tricky with a heavy suitcase but it's worth the effort to get the views from the room. Rooms are spartan. Please put a kettle and some cups in there for the Brits to make themselves a cuppa! Bathroom looked refurbished and everything worked. Not a lot of space for clothes and... More

In the heart of Vernazza, beautiful little village and nice hotel with cozy rooms each with their distinct view of the Ligurian sea. Clean private bath with our room and a nice breakfast including croissants, yogurt, cereal, cappuccino etc,.right on the edge of the sea. Two minute stroll to the beach and a nice corner spot for a glass of... More
