We switched rooms because they didn't have 2 nights available in any of the rooms that could be configured as twins. We had Da Franca the 1st night, which I believe is their newest room. Amazing what they can fit into such limited space. Bath fixtures, top notch and beautiful, my dream bathroom. Tiny room but we had plenty of... More

We stayed in Cinque Terra for 2 nights and absolutely loved this room! We were right on the plaza with a gorgeous view of the bell tower and the water! The room was comfortable and clean and much bigger than we expected. It had a small kitchenette with a sink, fridge and stove. Although we never used it because we... More

Vernazza was so lovely, small and quaint; love the area of Cinque Terre. Another unique place in Italy to experience. We were very pleased with our Da Dele room which we slept 5 for two nights. The room was clean, quirky and modern. Steps away from the main piazza. Revisiting the description of the room, it states there is a... More

We have stayed in other fine places in Vernazza - Camere Giuliano, Elizabetta's and La Mala - but we revisited this room because it is close to the harbor and overlooks the piazza. See the attached picture - the avocado green building, 2nd floor, window on the right. We highly recommend it. Keep in mind that these places are B&B's.... More

Two girlfriends and I just stayed in one of the rooms last night. The service was beyond efficient and the room was newly remodeled and immaculate. Highly recommend spending your money here! Ten stars!!

Great room - nicely updated, decorated. Franca Maria (a real person) very welcoming. Met me at the train station, and helped with my bags to the room. Vernazza is a wonderful town, and the "local experience" with the room up a narrow footpath (with steps) between the buildings added to the experience. But there was no view at all -... More

We went to reception and there was no answer. Finally got onto a man who rushed us to an unclean room with dirty sheets from previous guests. Not a friendly entrance to the start of an exciting trip. Room has a funny odour which is not relaxing and also floor has not been cleaned so moving on shortly.

Our stay in Franca Maria was very good. When you arrive into town via train, follow the 'main' street into the main harbor area called Piazza Marconi. Turn right and walk about 50 yards where you will see the Franca Maria sign. Press the buzzer and she will come down in about a minute. We stayed in the Da Dela... More

We stayed 4 nights in a room in Vernazza. We were met at the station and taken to a room close by with a balcony. We had requested an ocean view. This had no view at all. The room was nicely furnished and very clean. But... It was cold and damp and we were unable to control the heating. When... More
