We stayed in Le Rocce (Room #8, I believe) and loved the apartment! The unique layout and design fit with the charm of Vernazza and the cleanliness and service were wonderful, not to mention a great location - just a few steps off of the main square but very quiet at night. During our stay there was a large storm... More

We stayed for our 30th Anniversary and had a great time. Giovanni was very nice and arrived promptly to escort us to our room. The view from room 2 is like a postcard. Great restaurants nearby are reasonably priced. If you can only do one hike I recommend taking the train to Monterossa and hiking back to Vernazza. When you... More

We paid premium price and got a terrible room next to nosiy alley looking at a brick wall! Then they wanted cash. There is no reception just a door that is locked with a buzzer, at first no one came , we had no idea what to do or where to go. Finally someone walked up and then lead us... More

Enjoy authentic Vernazza with room from Franca Maria Rooms. We've stayed in a Franca Maria room every summer for 6 years and are always pleased. The location is unbeatable, especially room 1! Their price is exceptionally reasonable, the rooms are well appointed and CLEAN, and the family that runs Franca Maria rooms are simply wonderful. Bravo to Giovanni for finding... More

This place is all about location. Room 1 is right above a restaurant in the main square down by the water. If you are looking for a five star hotel, you probably won't find one in Cinque Terre. However, this place was exactly what I envisioned when I was looking at their website prior to booking the trip (and that... More

To begin, communication was excellent with the owners (who were a delight). We stayed in Cessa Doia (Room #1), which was a quick walk from the train station. We had a little issue with our arrival time due to full trains, but the owners were very accommodating and understanding. The room location is amazing with a window that opened up... More

Hi all, I booked the rooms of franca Maria for two nights 10 days before traveling there and had to cancel two days after receiving the reservation voucher because my companion had an accident. After many emails and calls, they don't want to reimburse at least part of the price for the rooms (250 € for both nights). They are... More

We had a great stay in Vernazza! We stayed in room two, and as i have read in other reviews, it was quite loud at night, but we had a positive attitude about it and just laughed when we could hear small children out late at night, or church bells at 7am every morning. The location was amazing, sitting in... More

Vernazza is the place to stay in the Cinque Terra if you want to hike, as it is only in this town that the trails are open since in the landslide to hike to both adjacent towns of Monterrosa and Corniglia. And in Vernazza, Franca Maria has great rooms. Like many places in the Cinque Terra, it is not one... More

We got off the train in Vernazza and had to navigate some huge crowds to find ourselves before the blank door of Francamaria Rooms. After I pushed the button on the intercom, we waited a few minutes before the proprietor led us to our room and provided our keys. He proved to be very helpful and always available by intercom...
