We stayed at La Mala on June 27th and 28th and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is centrally located in town and offers amazing scenic views from the balcony. It is very clean and well maintained. The hotel itself is simple and small - only 4 rooms and this quant B & B used to be a family home,... More

The view is amazing. The staff is very helpful (they even got a doctor to make a "house call" for us. The rooms are nice, bright and clean. They will help you with your luggage when you arrive at the train station. Just go to the information counter and have them call for you. They'll be there within 5 -... More

I think this is as close to heaven as you can find on earth! We had a room overlooking the ocean in the quaint rugged village of Vernazza. What a special time! La Mala is relatively simple yet beautifully appointed B and B - but a deeply soulful space which literally leaves one breathless every morning when you open the... More

This place was just the best! The deck was great overlooking the ocean, and the room on the harbor side looked on to the village. The place was impeccably clean and the owners were absolutely delightful. Breakfast vouchers for the restaurant on the square were provided. There are a lot of stairs to climb; but if you want a view... More

Simple, clean, and stylish white rooms. Convenient location. Wonderful host who greets you at the train station and shows you to the hotel. Will definitely recommend La Mala to friends/family visiting Vernazza in the future!

We were met at the train station on arrival with a warm friendly smile. There are a number of stairs to get to the room as the B&B is high on a hill overlooking the ocean. Our luggage was brought to the room for us. This is a big benefit, not all the hotels do this for their guests. The... More

Beautiful all white rooms with contemporary white decor and some with amazing views and a veranda perched high up on the cliff overlooking the Ligurian Sea. We stayed in 2 of the rooms during our 6 night stay. The whole place was immaculately maintained. Gian, the owner was very helpful, and assisted with carrying the luggage to and from the... More

Our host was incredibly helpful from the moment we arrived at the Vernazza train station, helping us with luggage and sharing wonderful recommendations from restaurants to hiking trails. He was there every morning to assist with the day, his local knowledge was extremely valuable as the hiking trails we took were not overly crowded and the views were amazing. We... More

I'm calling our room the elf tower because it was tiny and perched high in the air, looking across the village at the other (Italian-style) cliff dwellings. It was fascinating to watch life unfold in the apartments across the way. We even saw a wedding, with the couple tossing candy down into the street for the children - so charming!... More
