This is our third stay at the Albergo Barbara, which is a spartan hotel. The furnishings are simple, the beds are average, the shower and hot water are good, the linens are nice (I especially like their "Nido di Ape" honeycomb towels), and everything is very clean. The location and view, if you get a harborview room, are spectacular. The... More

Rooms are clean, check in staffs are polite and kind. There will be a environmental related fees at €1 per person per night. Although the rooms are shared bathroom, but bathrooms are clean. The only thing needed to improve is the hot water is not stable. And it's not family friendly as it has no lift and the hotel is... More

Albergo Barbara wasn't our first choice but we were glad we managed to get a room here due to other hotel rooms being unavailable due to the summer peak period. As many have mentioned, there's lots of climbing to do, however once we reached our room, it was worth the effort. We had reserved the double room with sea and... More

The best thing about this hotel is the view. Albergo Barbara id right on the harbor! Wonderful, but be ready for 83 , sometimes lighted stairs, and then a spiral staircase of about 20 more stairs, with a rope handrail to the top floor. The room was clean and the en suite bath fine, but no air conditioning,one small, uncomfortable... More

This Albergo is located right on the main square in an older building. With that location however come stairs - actually everything is in the Cinque Terre is up and down - but you need to be prepared. The rooms are up 83 stairs (I counted) including a narrow spiral staircase at the top, there is no elevator. Not a... More

This was just located in front of the harbor of Vernazza. So, very good location.. Very lively. Good restaurants are just downstairs. The only problem was that there was no elevator. And, it was located at 3/4th floor. There should be some rooms with good view of harbor. But, not the one we took (so lower price). Just one thing... More

Mid range hotel with basic facilities, but outstanding location on the main square in Vernazza. We took some fabulous photos from our window! Plenty of restaurants down in the square to choose from, however our favourite was Il Pirata, up behind the railway station. Because of it's outstanding location on the square, it was sometimes noisy at night, with restaurant... More

We had room 8, and the view was fantastic! The room was clean and comfortable as much as could be - the shower was actually the best we had experienced on our trip so far (previously stayed in London and Paris). The girl at the reception was nice although not overly helpful with recommendations, directions, etc. overall we really enjoyed... More

My review is about CUSTOMER SERVICE. We stayed there for 1 night. We could have booked one more but the "attitude" of this character was a major turn off. We had reservations and were not able to arrive early during the day. Although we called in advance to let them know that we were going to check in late that... More

I'm not sure why some people bashed this place. The view was phenomenal and both Giuseppe and Patricia were very helpful to us. Our room was also cleaned frequently and bathroom was always refilled if need be. As far as the stairs go, go exercise you lazy Americans!!!
