This is my first one-star rating in all the years I've been on TripAdvisor. The day I was supposed to arrive there were train strikes in Italy. After boarding multiple Trenitalia trains all day long and having them delayed and then finally cancelled, I had no way to arrive in Vernazza. I called the staff to explain the situation, as...

We stayed here one night on our Cinque Terre walking tour. We were warmly welcomed on our arrival and given helpful local advice. The room, while fairly basic and small was very comfortable, and the terrace and garden were lovely. Our tour arranges for our bags to be ported from town to town, and that all worked perfectly. Breakfast was... More

Place run by mother Graziella, daughter Francesca & husband Aldo. As I spoke Italian, Graziella was friendly & did enjoy a chat. Didn't meet Francesca but spoke to her on phone as there was a misunderstanding as to whether or not breakfast was included. Our travel agent kindly sorted it out and so it was included but I do feel... More

This is a pensione.small room, no frills,reception closes at 7 pm. Its a... More

I booked a private room, and it was very nice. It felt like a hotel, but for the price of a hostel. The shared bathroom was nice, the room was cleaned well and often, and the common areas were bright and sunny. It's a 2 minute walk from the train into Vernazza, and a 5 minute walk to the water.

My wife and I spent 4 nights at Pensione Sorriso from July 23-26, 2015. The central location in Vernazza is perhaps the best thing going for this hotel. The rail station is very near, and all of the restaurants, shops and bars are within walking distance. The a/c worked just fine, and there was a window in our room that... More

I think the appeal of Vernazza (Cinque terra) is not about WI-Fi and fancy TVs. The place is the epitome of quaint. Being that you must take the train in, the fact that it's 20 feet from the train stop is invaluable with luggage. We really enjoyed our stay, clean, good location, affordable. I was happy.

We stayed for 2 nights. Didn't expect a lot as it is only 2 stars. They weren't joking when they said it was a short walk from the station- we could hear people talking on the platform that's how close we were. The trains were also VERY!!! noisy all day and night as is the town clock that stops at... More

My girlfriend and I checked in on a Thursday. When we got there the owner barely spoke English so we had difficulty understanding her. She said something about us changing rooms after one night, but we weren't sure. I double checked hostel world and saw nothing about is switching rooms. We had three nights booked in double bed privates with... More
