I have stayed at Gianni Franzi twice, once in fall and once in summer. the location above the harbor is ideal. they have three large outdoor public spaces. One is used for breakfast and wine tastings and the other two are for guests to relax. the views over the water from the two that overlook the sea are spectacular. getting... More

A month in Italy and my ONLY bad accommodation review.... Had it not been for the outstanding views from the 2 decks overlooking the ocean at Tratorria Gianni Franzi, I would have given this place a "terrible" rating. From their website, on the history of the tratorria,"Before WWII the Trattoria della Stella was the property of a local character known... More

Stairs....first word...if you can't carry your own luggage you either packed too much or need to find another place to stay. The value, charm and excitment we felt when we opened our room's shutter to the hillside view was magical. I finally felt like I was "in" Italy. Our room had no air but had a fan and two large...

If you aren't in good shape, do not book a room. You literally climb up 100 steps to the hotel then even more up a winding staircase to reach your room. I was huffing and puffing. The view made it all worth it!! Breakfast was the best I'd had in Europe. Pastries, meats, cheeses, yogurt, coffee and tea. My em... More

We loved our room at the top of the B&B. While it was a bit of a climb to get to the room, it was worth it. The room had character. There was an outlook open to all guests on the cliffs that was a great place to relax. Breakfast overlooking the water was beautiful and the food was good... More

We weren't that impressed with the ensuite we had. Although it was fairly clean, it felt a bit old and dated. The wifi was only available on the top floor, making it a bit difficult when you needed wifi in the room. The best part about the hotel is the seaview from both the breakfast deck and the cliff terrace.... More

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
