This property is like a haven in the madness of Monterosso. Arriving we were overwhelmed by the August crowds. The train station is chaotic and crowded. Nicoletta was our saviour! Arriving on her bicycle to meet us! The property has a lovely tranquil terrace. Rooms are small but adequate. Not luxurious but comfortable and practical. There is also a small... More

This is my third visit to Monterosso and I can say that I returned because of the beauty of the Cinque Terre villages, but the real reason is to stay with Nicoletta at La Poesia. Nicoletta is a true hostess, making myself and friends feel welcomed and comfortable. I traveled with a large group and Nicoletta went out of her... More

Nicolette the owner is so good at her job. She arranged to pick us up from the station, and welcomed us with a bottle of Prosecco and a few bites to eat whilst we sat in the lovely terrace and filled in the normal hotel paperwork. The room was clean but dated and small however we were never in as... More

If you read other reviews you will notice that Nicoletta greets you at the train station and has a taxi waiting for you. It is by far the best service we experienced in Italy. She pays for the taxi too. The rooms are immaculate, on the small side but very duable with king size beds. The shower/bathroom is a nice... More

We stayed in the Giglio Rosso Suite while at La Poesia and it was delightful. A great size and spotlessly clean but what really made our stay here was not only the beautiful setting of Monterosso, but the charming welcome from Nicoletta. We were met and taken by taxi to the hotel, welcomed warmly with her local recommendations and a... More

We arrived at Monterosso station and were met by Nicoletta. She had arranged a cab to take us to la Poesia. She cycled ahead. She was very friendly and gave us a charming welcome. La Poesia, at €190 a night is pretty disappointing and our room was even more so, though there is a very pleasant terrace, where breakfast was... More

We spent 2 nights staying at La Poesia last week and had a wonderful time. Nicolette was absolutely delightful. Such a friendly and warm host that also served up a delicious breakfast. The only slightly negative comment we would have is that the room is quite small but given how much there is to do in the area (unless it's... More

We arrive in Monterosso by train and immediately Nicoletta was waiting for us (we did not expect anyone there). She greeted us and had a taxi waiting to take us to our place. There was no added cost for this. Upon arrival she told us to get settled and meet her in the courtyard for a snack. She had laid... More

The previous reviews have said all there is to say. Nicolletta is a very sweet lady who does the job right. From her super clean, modern accommodations to her delicious breakfasts she has found a niche in this beautiful little village. If you can stay here you will not be disappointed.

Don't hesitate to book here. It is in a perfect location. SO glad we stayed here over Vernazza which was too crowded. We were greeted by a very hospitable Nicoletta who very kindly arranged a taxi to get us in the pouring rain from the train station. (Luckily the rain cleared up for our stay.) The room is delightful and... More
