“Great location and value for money”
Reviewed September 28, 2010

Found this place on TripAdvisor recommendations - it was great, lovely breakfast on a balcony, clean rooms, handy to the beach, friendly staff. Small bathroom, but had everything we needed!

We stayed in Monterossa for a day and were so sad it was only one day. The Band B is a very short walk to the beach in the new part of town. Our room was quiet and very clean (the bathroom in ours was updated and fairly new). Our host did not speak much English, but has a big personality which makes you feel welcome and at home. The garden was beautiful with lemons, peaches, roses, etc. Our breakfast which overlooked the garden was traditionally Italian and quaint. We would definitely stay here again when we return. Grazie Senora for a wonderful stay.

I thought this was a great place and very reasonably priced. The mom didn't speak English but was adorable. Valerie answered emails very quickly. We didn't notice the sewer smell noted by other reviewers. We had two rooms. One had a private bathroom. The other one might have had to share a bathroom but the other bedroom was unoccupied. No big deal though even if they had had to share. The 4th room also has a private bathroom. The location was great - I was expecting that we would wish we had stayed in Old Town but we really didn't care. It's more congested there and I sort of liked getting out of the crowd and noise.

Hello,

I really cant understand all the complaints in here. When i travel to a foreign land, i don't expect that people there speak my language. Valerias english was excellent and her mother really tried to speak a slow italian so i could understand her. So maybe you guys out there learn a little bit italian before you travel. I am an avid traveller to Monterosso al mare and B&B Marisa was way the best offer i ever had – did you ever had to pay for a hotel in Monterosso al mare?. Plus i tried to book late for Easter and she offered me the only free room which was perfect for my needs: Clean, good bed and a nice bathroom. The Breakfest was great: Excellent coffe and all the rest was nice too. I just can recommend lovely Marisa and her beautyful Place. Ciao a tutti :-) Gregor from Germany
PS: Thanks for the fresh lemons and the lovely Canna flower which feels well here, thanks Valeria

We had a wonderful time here. Fresh, clean, comfortable rooms. We had our own private bathroom. Lovely family-run b&b, always helpful and friendly. Organising the booking was quick and easy and emails were always promptly answered. There was an assortment of food for breakfast including toast, brioches and fresh coffee and juice. The beach and main street were a 3 minute walk away, which meant you could escape the noise at night, but still close enough to enjoy shops and restaurants. Monterosso and the surrounding villages were absolutely stunning too.
I highly recommend Marisa B&B! We had an amazing time there!

Tiny bathroom which had an overbearing sewerage smell. Hand basin stuck into your shoulder while you sat on toilet. Hot pokey room filled with useless furniture. Open window didn't help but a small fan gave some relief. Floors sticky. Cigarette ash on kitchen benches and on floor in breakfast room. Juice, coffee/tea , toast with jams and nuttella okay for breakfast but that's all. No fresh fruit or yoghurt. Breakfast at 0900 hours didn't accommodate anyone wishing to sleep in or get up early to tackle the Cinque Terre walks.

We were four people looking desperately for 2 rooms in Cinque Terre. Everything seemed to be booked or not available for only 1 night. When reading the few existing reviews for Marisa B&B, I hesitated, because it didn´t seem very convincing. We didn´t have much choice and managed to book 2 rooms at Marisa.

Upon arrival, I was relieved. Valeria and Louisa welcomed us warmly. We had free parking in a garage just next to the house.

Valeria spoke excellent english but Louisa none. That didn´t bother us at all, we managed to express our wishes with basic italian or our hands.

The rooms were very big and spotless. There were tiny bathrooms in each of our rooms. The shower was clean and the water had good pressure.

Breakfast was good. Tea, coffee, orange juice, warm bread with jam, nutella or butter and small biscuits. Everything served with a smile on a small terrasse.

Marisa is situated very close to the beach and only a few minute walk to the old town of Monterrosso. That didn´t bother us at all! The walk is pleasant and the views are magnificent.

I would definately consider staying here again if I returned to Cinque Terre.

  • Liked — Clean, big rooms, good breakfast and nice staff. Close to the beach.
  • Disliked — View from room is onto the street.
