“Sea views”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

The hotel was just a few minutes walk from the station, sea and restaurants.The room was a bit small and the shower was designed for skinny people only but we had great views of the hills and found the whole place clean and comfortable. The staff were lovely, friendly and helpful. We enjoyed sitting in the courtyard with a fountain.

It's a little hike up the Main Street t the hostel and it has a beautiful view of Manarola town. The host and its chef were very friendly and kind to us. It's a dorm style hostel, so the minimum is 6 in a dorm and they are separated by females/males. Their bathroom stalls are clean but tiny, and the showers are timed but warm water. They also have dinner available downstairs, very good food and as mentioned, they are great hosts. My only complaint is the church bells, since I am not an early bird. They ring from 7am, every half hour, even with the windows closed, they are pretty audible. Each town in Cinque terre has a similar church near by, so I imagine each town hostel is awakened similarly.

We completely enjoyed our stay at the Hotel 5 Terre! The staff was so nice and helpful, and even let us extend our time in the room with no extra charge. The room was small but very clean--the bathroom was recently remodeled and very clean and fresh. We would recommend this hotel for a great location and service in Cinque Terre.

A friend recommended this hotel. Great location (in a town that is arguably the best of the "five lands") and great hotel--a block from the beach, an easy 5-minute walk from the train, and very good restaurants nearby. Nice lobby and staff, with two cats guarding the lobby. Outside patios on two levels. Breakfasts are excellent Italian style, with a machine that makes various good coffees.
When we arrived, we were given one of the best rooms (#207, but #307 should also be excellent), a SE corner room (perhaps just because we asked). It had a partial sea view. Most other rooms would probably not have a sea view. Hotel seemed not full, perhaps because Rick Steves stopped sending his tour groups there--a mistake! (Our theory is that our smallish room had a bathroom with a smallish shower--no tub--and there was a 4-inch step-up in the middle of it, perhaps a safety concern.)
It's about a 10-15 minute walk through the nice, short tunnel (check the side tunnel also) to the old town, and another good restaurant there. (For restaurant suggestions, check my reviews to follow.) Wine lovers should also find Enotec 5 Terre on the main street.

This hotel has the friendliest, most obliging staff. We chose this as flat walk from Monteresso railway station . It was convenient, great breakfast, excellent WiFi in lobby area. It was spotlessly clean and had its own charm . Our room had a water glimpse but we had paid a very reasonable rate. Hotel recommended places for dinner , both good.
It was an ideal place to stay for exploring Cinque Terre. Highly recommended

Room Tip: Ask for room at front on higher floor

Our 5 days at the Hotel 5 Terre were extremely enjoyable. Our nice very quiet room with balcony and even a bit of a sea view (mostly blocked by a magnificent palm tree so I just focused on the beauty of the tree) was excellent. I chose Monterosso and the Hotel 5 Cinque (near beach & train station) since it was the largest of the 5 towns and we could go for long walks along the seafront/beach in the evening after spending the day visiting the other smaller towns. But it was Maria and Domenico who run the hotel and are so friendly and accommodating who made our stay so enjoyable and we feel are our new best friends. Great breakfast too in large beautiful breakfast room.

Room Tip: Higher room with beautiful palm tree view!

The staff of this hotel made us feel a home. It had a very warm feeling and very obliging staff. Close to many of the sites that this area is famous for. Breakfast had a variety of fruits and a good selection of cereals.
