We were met by John (the owner) at the train station. A quick call upon our arrival and he was there in minutes to haul our bags up the many stairs where La Mala is located. Because of the location, the views from La Mala are breath-taking. There is a shared veranda (by all the guests) overlooking the Mediterranean. We... More

This place is fabulous! Gianni helped us (mother and daughter with way too much luggage) both coming and going. The room was small, but so clean and new. We would stay there again in a heart beat! We visited all the five towns and Vernazza is the best! There is a fabulous gelateria near by with cinnamon gelato to die... More

Loved our stay at La Mala -- beautiful, clean rooms with comfy bed and nice bathroom, plus a great view overlooking the sea from the common balcony. Gianni was kind enough to meet us at the train station and help with our luggage, plus recommend restaurants and make reservations. He could not have been nicer. Bring cash (15% more to... More

We stayed in room 31 for 5 nights, where we spent much of the time in the minimal, whitewashed room, just staring out the window at the beautiful blue sea below. Vernazza is a stunning town and this small hotel is wonderful. The town itself, filled with tourists during the day, becomes calm and serene in the mornings and evenings... More

La mala is amazing! This 4 suite hotel is located in the most beautiful village in cinque terre, vernazza. Located on the cliffs, your views could not be better. The rooms are bright, well kept, clean, and beautiful. The bed was very comfortable and sleeping to the sounds of waves crashing against the bluffs was relaxing and wonderful. If you... More

This B&B helped us with the luggages once we got out from the train at Vernazza station. That helped heaps as there were steps to walk up to the hotel. This B&B is centrally located in the town. We had the room overlooking the magnificent ocean view. The room was simple and neat. The wifi was working well in the... More

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
