We stayed in room 19 on our honeymoon and LOVED it. Gian was very quick to respond before our trip. We told him when our train was scheduled to arrive and he met us at the station to help us carry our bags. The room was pristine and beautifully decorated. The service was exceptional. Room 19 had a beautiful view... More

We were lucky enough to secure a last minute booking at this B&B when visiting the Cinque Terre. The hotel owner was extremely helpful and attentive. The hotel itself is located within the centre of Vernazza and benefits from beautiful views over the whole town. It was extremely modern, clean, comfortable and great value for money. 5 stars!

Very modern and clean room (room 19) with nice view from our window and gorgeous view of water from the shared terrace. Not a big room but you really don't want to stay in your room too much with such beautiful scenery. Quite a few stairs to get to it but Gian helped carry our bags. Would definitely stay there...

Like so many others we had a wonderful stay at LaMala in Vernazza. A beautiful B&B with great service and exceptionally clean rooms. Don't worry if you can't get one of the 2 rooms with views of the sea. We actually felt the other rooms were more private. A shared terrace overlooks the Mediterranean Sea that we made good use...

We had a wonderful stay at La Mala in Vernazza. This bed and breakfast was clean, comfortable, and very nice. The terrace was beautiful and offered amazing views! We loved sitting out there to listen and watch the waves. The owner was extremely kind and helpful. He met us at the train station and carried our bags up the stairs... More

We greatly enjoyed our stay at La Mala. We were in room 19, which was very nice with windows looking out onto the terrace. Gian was incredibly nice, letting me text him whenever we needed something (reservations, recommendations, etc). My favorite part of the stay was taking a cup of coffee out to the terrace in the cool mornings and... More

If you deciding where to stay in Cinque Terre, I would highly recommend La Mala in Vernazza. My wife and I love the exquisite design of the apartment by the owner, Gina. Importantly, the apartment is clean and well maintained. It has all the necessary amenities - secure door lock, aircon, TV, wifi and safe box. We appreciate the personalized... More

La Mala is a lovely clean, fresh Bed and Breakfast on the cliff top over looking the sea and castle. The view from our room is stunning and it is very relaxing listening to the waves below. I would only avoid this accommodation if you struggle with stairs as there are about 100 up to the room from the street.... More

Hi, I thoroughly recommend both Vernazza and La Mala - absolutely no need to look anywhere else for a special stay. The hotel is tastefully done and in a cute location. When you let the owner know which train you are on, he will wait for you at the station in a La Mala T-shirt/jacket to show you the way.... More

The 4 rooms in this B&B are bright and crisp and comfy! Two of the rooms have an ocean view that is stunning. Best of all, Gian, the owner, will meet you when you arrive and will happily carry your luggage up the several flights of steps that lead to the door. Book early.
