BED BUG ALERT!!! Do not stay here! My wife and I are covered in bites. if that's not enough there was no hot water and we are suspicious that the owners came into our room when we were gone. Supposedly Rick Steve's is removing this dirty dishonest place from his book next year.

We stayed at Room 8 and the view is amazing. The stairs is not as bad as what everybody was saying. It's on the third floor with 60 steps. You could hear everything happens on the street if there is any crowds, all of the restaurants close at 9:30pm when we were there. But the church bells quite early, we... More

This was one of our favorite places on our three week visit to Italy! Friends suggested we book at Albergo Barbara & we were not disappointed. The room was simple but very clean. We loved the view & leaning out the window to watch the happenings in the square. We had no issue with drunk & noisy people in the... More

We found this hotel on Rick Steve's Book on Italy. It was in a good location but the drunk people in the square carried on until 3 or 4 am and it was difficult to sleep. Then on Monday morning, the garbage trucks come very early and all you can hear is loud breaking glass. The sound carries right up... More

the location is fantastic - just above the main square of town. the room, as advertised, are very basic - bed, fan, closet - that's it. No A/C. also, be aware that it's 6 floors up without elevator - I guess this can be a problem for some

We stayed for 3 nights at Albergo Barbara in Vernazza. Got a tiny room under the roof, with its own bathroom and with a little window towards the harbour. Amazing view. Super-friendly staff, always happy to help. Everything is very clean and tidy. Extraordinary location in the main square, literally just meters away from the beach, restaurants and shops. All...

This room had an incredible view and great location- but lacked pretty much everything else. The room was in the attic and extremely hot with only one small ineffective fan. The bathroom was across the hall and it was 4000 degrees. If you opened the window to let air in, you looked on to someone's balcony. The wifi was awful... More

We stayed in one of the large double rooms with private bath. These rooms have a large window that opens up to the piazza below and overlooks the harbor, coastline and view of neighboring town Monterosso. The rooms and the building itself are pretty spare, if not spartan. The entry to the building is undergoing remodeling so it looks like... More

Albergo Barbara has always been my go-to place to stay in Vernazza. While it's been several years since I've been there (this website requires that I put in a date, but it's actually been a few years), I have fond memories and look forward to returning soon. Giuseppe and Patricia couldn't be nicer hosts and I make sure I book... More

Stayed here with my sister and daughter for two nights. First, yes, there are 4 flights of stairs!! No lift! You walk in on ground floor and you basically walk into a garage-type feeling. Then head up the 4 flights of not too steep stairs. It can be dark, so if you arrive at night, make sure to have a... More
