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...

We arrived in Vernazza and followed directions as per email confirmation, all smooth, a gentleman came down, took us to the room and then asked to come over with our passports and pay for the room once we had settled in - nice. So we went over later and fixed up all the paperwork & paid and then we didn't... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night after a long hike from monterosso. The reservation spot is in the piazza by the water. There is a door that sits next to a busy pizza place. Ring bell and Giovanni will greet you. We were booked in the Lina room but due to problems they changed us to 6b.... More

We stayed for two nights in April and our budget couldn't stretch to a sea view room. The room we ended up with was very well positioned, just a few moments walk up some stairs from the main square. However the only window opened onto a narrow alley and there was very little natural light. The room was ok, the... More

So there is a range of reviews on this place and I can understand both sides. We arrived in town around noon and selected FrancaMaria by chance as we looked at the signs around Vernazza offering rooms. There was space in town as many rooms were available. I believe the price was high based on guidebooks and the time of... More
