If you are visiting Cinque Terre and are not sure which village to stay in, I would definitely recommend Monterosso al Mare and Hotel Pasquale. We only had two nights at Hotel Pasquale when visiting with friends and all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is only very small and three star but this is indicative of accommodation in Cinque Terre. Being a family run business it was very low key and relaxing. The rooms were of a good size (by European standards) clean and had a wonderful view of the ocean. There is nothing better than having your window open listening to the ocean and soaking up the wonderful views. Breakfast was included in our rate in a very relaxed atmosphere with plenty of choices. Nothing was too much trouble, even second cups of cappuccino or hot chocolate. When we were enquiring about train times to Portofino within seconds they were looking up the times for us. The Hotel is situated between the old and the new town and we walked with our cases from the train station without any trouble.
Being couples in our early 60's we selected Hotel Pasquale for its location. The location is fantastic, right in front of the beach area, on flat ground with no steps up into the heavens, which was very important to us. The Hotel is right in front of the boardwalk to the ferry departure point where you can take a ferry ride to visit the other villages or go just up the hill to start the walk to the next village. Everything is at your finger tips, including shops and restaurants. You can also sit out in front of the hotel at their table and chairs to have afternoon drinks with nibbles supplied to people watch and take in the fantastic views.
This was one of our favourite times in Italy and due to our tight schedule unfortunately could only stay two nights. I would certainly not hesitate to recommend Hotel Pasquale to anyone looking for clean, comfortable and relaxed accommodation............and don't forget the Location!!
