I am much overdue in writing this review. My husband and I enjoyed a great weekend in Vernazza in September 2014, sandwiched between a week in Tuscany and a week in Sicily, we wanted a few days to hike and enjoy the outdoors. La Mala provided perfect accommodations for our Cinque Terra hiking getaway. A wonderful guest house, beautifully renovated,... More

We rented two rooms: one room was facing the house next door with a view on the neighboring home - that is, no view at all unless you looked at at angle. Unfortunately this room cost the same price as the larger one overlooking the village. This bnb is a cross between a boutique hotel/apartment and an bnb - only... More

I really wish I could just live here! Gian is the best host I've ever encountered! He met us at the train station and then walked us to the apartment. Unfortunately, we could only stay in Vernazza for 2 nights, but we are already planning out next trip back to Vernazza and we're definitely going to stay at Gian's place... More

Ahhhh La Mala!.. My partner and I stayed in room 19 in September when we visited Vernazza and the Cinque Terre and we loved it! Gianni came to get our bags from the train station when we arrived and gave us a talking tour of the town on the way to the hotel. He settled us in and recommended some... More

We stayed at La Mala for 3 nites in sept. We booked room # 31. My husband , who is in the hotel business, describes it best as : simple, clean, zen, minimalist but very very comfortable! The view from Room 31 is worth booking a year in advance. You will not regret choosing La Mala. And by the way,me... More

We stayed in Room 19, which has views of the town as well as the harbor and square. The B&B is very quiet and the terrace overlooking the sea is a great place to relax and enjoy a glass of wine. This is a very nice place to stay in Vernazza.

Wonderful, quaint little place. I highly recommend it! First, it is in a great location, and in the great town of Vernazza. A reservation is a must. And while you are making a reservation for this place, be sure to make a reservation for dinner at Belforte. La Mala is small, white, simple, and a little reminiscent of Santorini, of... More

Stayed here for three nights with my husband from Sept 13. We had to take the cheapest room as when we booked the others had been taken. The room was very clean & styled beautifully but very small. Having access to the gorgeous balcony overlooking the Mediteranean is much needed, especially for the smaller 2 rooms. The balcony, I agree... More

This is a quaint boutique hotel (just 4 rooms) located in the heart of Vernazza. John met us at the train station to help carry our luggage and walk us to La Mala. We stayed in room 20, which had a peek a boo view of the sea. The room is small but very efficient and very clean. It was... More

The view from the communal balcony at La Mala is perhaps one of the most beautiful in Vernazza! Both nights we stayed at La Mala, we enjoyed sitting on the balcony with a glass of wine admiring the cliffs, the castle nearby, and the sea below. The location was great, and the service even better (including John who, after we... More
