Hotel Palme
Ranked #16 of 20 Hotels in Monterosso al Mare
Reviewed November 3, 2013

Chose this hotel because of proximity to railway station & beach. However, photo made it look as though hotel was right on beach. Pleasant rooms but more expensive than the other 9 places we stayed while travelling in Italy. Good breakfast but as others have said, annoying notices re not taking food away, or using the bar fridges - they must have had issues with tourists. However, glad we went there - I cancelled other places which were in the old town & would have needed a taxi to get there. Pleasant town & good weather in October.

This hotel is easy to get to if you are driving and the only plus is the parking.
Unfortunately I was here once before with a tour group. I should have known better for this second time, but since I was driving I felt I may not have a better option? But I know there are better ones now.
It is on the far north side of Monterosso and a bit of a walk to the old town. But not a big deal. The problem I have with the Hotel Palme is that it looked like and felt like a college dormitory. Our room was dusty, with hairs still on the floor from previous occupants. I recleaned the room myself. Signs posted in the room and breakfast area with rules- made it feel unwelcoming and more like a dorm. The furnishings are cheap and institutional looking. This is not close to a 4 star place! Really it is about a 2 star…really.
The room was okay in size and our large balcony helped with drying out washed or wet clothes.
The women at the bar and the one working the front desk were nice.
Breakfast was good.
The place really needs an overhaul. Remodel and clean this hotel. . The owners show their face from time to time and rarely crack a smile.

We are on a Rick Steves Tour. This hotel was a letdown from our first two which we really enjoyed. Although near the beach, it does not overlook the ocean. It is clean and well managed, The staff was very nice and helpful. The small bar area and the breakfast were above average, but the rooms are less than desirable. Tile floors are nice for the staff since easier to clean, but remind me of a Spring Break beach hotel in the States. The bath is tiny like many in Europe. There are no amenities, not even bar soap in our room. I would look for a different hotel in Monterosso if I came again.

Room Tip: Go for Floor 3 and rooms from 301 to 308

Good hotel in a great location. Staff were nice and helpful. Some good inside and out common areas to relax if it rains. Price was fair and rooms were clean and quiet. Lots of Australians staying there which was not ideal when you are an Australian trying to forget about home for a while....

I had a room at Hotel Palme when I went to Monterosso with a friend for the weekend. Our 2 other friends who came for the day wanted to drop their bags off in our room while they were on the beach. The hotel staff accused us of trying to fit 4 people in a 2 person room. We explained to them that it wasn't the case and they were here for the day but continued to be very difficult and extremely rude. When we came back at night they had entered our room and gone through our stuff without any reason. When we went downstairs with our bags to tell them we were uncomfortable and going to leave they told us we had to pay the 150 euros for the room or they would call the police. We had not touched the room besides our bags being in there during the day. Overall awful experience and made us feel really uncomfortable on a trip we were really looking forward to. Wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

Location to the beach and railway station was superb. Reception staff were very friendly and helpful. We also loved the front area - very spacious and a great place to start the day after breakfast or to finish the evening - very relaxing! Only negatives were no wifi in rooms (only public areas), no coffee making facilities in room (wife is a coffee addict) and an offensive sign in the room that if you use their bar fridge - your drinks will be confiscated. Maybe only minor things that are negative but they all add up from being a great place to stay to a good place to stay. We could have stayed 30 metres up the road for 30 euros per night less but they didn't have a bar fridge to keep out wine cool. That's how important some little things are to some people.

We stayed for a week in Hotel Palme and had a lovely time. The room was comfortable and the AC was a nice break from the heat, the staff was really friendly and helped us call restaurants for reservations, and overall the location was terrific! The one thing I wish they offererd was Wifi in the hotel, as I did have work to do while we were there and my only option was to go to the lobby. Would have been nice to do work from our room's balcony. :)
