We arived in Monterosso and it was raining. The Palme is very close to the train station so we only had a short walk which was vey good. It is not in the "Old town" which you get to via a tunnel.
We were greeted promptly and asked for our passports, I handed them over and they were retained. In every other hotel we used in Italy the information that was required was collected and passports were returned immediately. We did get them back later that evening.
The lady on in the evening, I think her name was either Emma or Emily, was very helpful and had suggestions for the next day. Unfortunately there had recently been a landslide which hurt several walkers and after the rain of the previous few days the walking trails were all closed.
We ended up catching a boat from Monterosso to Riomaggiore and then catching the train back between each village.
The villages are very picturesque and my youngest son was particularly impressed by the boats being parked on trolleys along the streets and the boat lift.
The hotel breakfast was plentiful but beware of taking anything from the breakfst room. There are warning signs against doing this placed in the elevator.
The room was very basic and we couldn't open the bathroom door fully. The bathroom was compact to say the least and the shower cabinet the smallest I've ever seen. I think if you were weary after trekking all day the shower would have been a disappointment.
