Vernazza is amazing and the walks are incredible. Arranging the accommodation was easy and painless at short notice. In this accommodation we stayed in one room (Cessa Diora) our first night which overlooks the main square. Excellent view, reasonably quiet and great access to the town. Only a couple of stairs from the square to the room which was very...

Some of the low ratings here are silly. You are in Italy. Expect Italian as the language... That said, man we dealt with spoke passable English and was easy to deal with. Pay for the room up front, shown to the room, told to leave the key in the room when we leave. End of contact, other than daily maid...

ABSOLUTLY LOVED OUR ROOM! Beautiful and clean! Would stay there again for sure! Highly recommend! They were up a lot of stairs, which is typical for Europe and particularly Cinque Terre. Cinque Terre is very old world, and you must keep it in mind while traveling here. I would absolutely stay here again!

I recently stayed in Da Dele room with my family of four in Vernazza, and it was great! We had been travelling for two weeks at that point, and the room was fresh, clean and modern by Italian standards. In addition to having a pre-made pull out bed, the room also featured a quaint but functional outside laundry line with...

Vernazza is a unique location, beautiful views, charming warm residents and the wonderful sounds of the sea and the church bells. Our room was clean and comfortable, but it was the sights and sounds of Vernazza that made it even better. We overlooked the town center and had amazing views of the church and harbor. Our hosts were gracious, and...

We rented two rooms from Franca Maria and really enjoyed our stay. Our rooms were clean and located near the center square of Vernazza. The spaces were comfortable, tidy and not fancy.

We loved the little room we rented from this lady. Her husband checked us in on site after meeting us at the train station. The quaint room had two rock walls and three windows. While there was a balcony it really had no view but it was good to be able to step outside. The bed was comfy, the towels...

The beds were not comfortable at all, the language barrier is a great aspect to consider. We booked Ciapae room and got 3 double rooms which should be more expensive. The only response when trying to solve problems was "no understand", and a difficult landlady to differ from! The husband show unannounced up while 6 ladies occupied the 3 double...

We stayed in one of Francamaria's Camere (rooms) while hiking the Cinque Terre Trail. She was very accomodating and the room was great. We did not make a reservation ahead of time and just started asking for available rooms. Fortunately, Francamaria had two rooms still available, but neither were view rooms. The room we stayed in actually had two, King...

We had a fabulous view from our room in Vernazza. It was a great base to explore Cinque Terre. Our check in felt rushed and not very welcoming, with no extras that we got from other small hotels in Italy (maps, recommendations for places to eat etc). There is no breakfast. They only accept cash, even though they take your...
