Great room. Cold aircon and super strong wifi Lots of steps, worth the exercise because of the pizza and beer you'll enjoy. Cash only ( cash is king in Vernazza) Go to the website and find the map to the main hq the guy will take you to your room from there. Big bathroom , English channels... Minute walk from... More

Renting the Begain room was as easy as two emails. I was able to pick the room of my choice about four months before our arrival. Cash is king in Vernazza and this purveyor was no exception. The trade off was what I thought to be a tremendous bargain given the location and the quality of the room. We had... More

We booked five nights here in Vernazza. I knew that they utilised rooms around the village, but I guess I did not expect to cart two large suitcases all the way from the train down to the waterfront where their reception is located, and then all the way back up the hill to the station again and then along a...

Vernazza is a different kind of place and so is the Franca Maria Rooms. This is not a hotel - it is separate rooms in different places, so there is no room service or service desk. In fact, the owner, who is very nice, is hard to get a hold of because he is always busy. I had a room... More

We were originally taken to a very small room(closet) about half way up the hill between the beach and the train station and at the end of a convoluted alleyway. We knew the town was laid out on a hillside but were not interested in lugging our suitcases and ourselves up so many small steps if we didn't have to.... More

This was the best place we stayed. Very charming and plenty of room for 5 of us. There was no air conditioning but it wasn't needed because the brick walls kept it cool. It was tucked in, just off the main street and just seconds from the harbor. You didn't have to climb up a hill to get here, either.... More

We booked the room Cessa Doia which looks out upon Piazza Marconi, you will be hard pressed to find a more beautiful location on the planet!

We rented their Cessa Doia room right on the main plaza for two nights. This room does have a great view, does not take a lot of effort to get to, can accommodate up to four guests (with a futon) and it is located right in the center of all the action. The WIFI service does not work unless you... More

The room we stayed in was in a great location and the bed was comfortable. That exhausts all the good things I have to say about it. The room was small (which we are used to having travelled extensively in Europe, especially Italy where we were in the middle of a 10 week trip to the country) and too pricey... More

This was such a great room and looked right onto the square. It was crazy close to everything! Vernazza is an expensive place to stay but this room was quite reasonable compared to some and was extremely clean and beautifully kept. Coffee, tea and bar fridge in room. We had this and another room (with another lady) as there were... More
