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!!!

Best location possible for the View from the Piazza to the water. However, the nightlife in the Piazza can keep you "involved" until the wee hours. The hotel is older, with many stairs to the rooms. We had a room with a private bath and our bath was clean, if small. These are things to be expected in Vernazza. This... More

Albergo Barbara made a perfect base point for our 4 nights in the Cinque Terre. Patricia, the owner, was very friendly, and the rate was quite reasonable. It's a pretty basic hotel but quite clean and you're not really in the Cinque Terre to hang out in your room. Note that the hotel is on the top floors of the... More

Vernazza was our favourite stop during our 2 weeks in Italy. We stayed at Albergo Barbara for 3 nights in the attic Room #2. Likes: The price (65 Euro per night) for private room and private bathroom, View of the harbor, top floor, Quiet, Very Clean! Cautions: Sloped attic ceiling (be careful walking in the middle of the night because... More

Enjoyed our stay AT Albergo Barbara! The staff were great and very helpful! Gave us a map of the trails to use and explained which were open and safe to hike! Very centrally located! We didn't have a room with a view but when they were cleaning a room we saw the view and it was beautiful! Our room was... More

We stayed in room 8 and definitely one of the best views in town but it comes with some inconvenience as part of the package . 63 stair steps to your room each time you leave . The noise from the plaza goes on until 2AM so if you are a light sleeper get use to ear plugs . The... More

Despite reading mixed reviews about Albergo Barbara, I greatly enjoyed my stay here. I booked a double room in the attic for 55 euros/night. I had room number three. The view alone would have been worth twice that. The rooms are pretty basic, but you have everything you need. Small wardrobe, sink with mirror, bed, and dresser. The rooms in... More

Very clean hotel . Pretty good value. The hotel is very spartan and very noisy. Rick Steve's recommends the hotel And is usually spot on in his recommendations. It is okay for the cinque terre but if you like a little luxury stay in a different hotel.

We checked into the apartment across the piazza from the main facility. It was clean and comfortable with a small kitchen and smaller bathroom. We knew there would be a lot of steps in Vernazza and that was ok with us. The apt was on the 5th floor overlooking the Ligurian Sea and the harbor. It even had a small... More
