All the other reviewers have got it right. This small intimate hotel provides the genuine 5 star experience that other hotels strive for but often don't achieve. The room was simply beautiful, the bed deliciously comfy, the breakfasts superbly fresh and inviting, but even more importantly than all of this, Matteo and Anna are simply wonderful hosts (and their staff are also lovely). It's the small but important touches that make them such great hosts..we arrived at the hotel a little before our room was ready so Matteo stowed our luggage, led us out to the gorgeous terrace and offered complimentary coffees while we waited for our room. When we went to reception to purchase a bottle of wine to drink we asked Anna her opinion on the two bottles we were considering. Not only did she give her opinion but she promptly gave us a tasting of each to assist us in our choice. These guys really do understand that travellers sometimes like being looked after!! We have now been on the road for 3 months and we've stayed in many hotels on this trip. This was our best experience!
Oh, and just like others have noted the location is fabulous. We will return to Monterosso and we will only stay at the Villa Steno.
