Albergo Marina
Ranked #16 of 20 Hotels in Monterosso al Mare
Reviewed June 21, 2010

During a one month European vacation my wife and I visited Monterroso Al Mare. I had booked a hotel that I thought was too close to the rail line and finally looked at a Rick Steve's recommendation and found the Albergo Marina. I paid 30 Euros less for the Albergo. Our room was wonderful with fridge and safe. The hotel has WiFi and a computer that are free to use. At two in the afternoon they serve hors-d'oeuvres that include fruit, big shrimp, paiella, mussels, water, coffee, etc. This lasts until 6pm. For morning breakfast that is served on the lemon terrace, the chef will make omelets, crepes, waffles, eggs to order and they have all of the other normal fare including a great coffee machine that gives everything from Cafe Americano to Expresso. Add to all this that they have sporting equipment you can use for free. I went snorkling and had a wonderful time. I can't say enough good things about this hotel and its staff. Numero Uno

Wonderful B&B, great bang for the buck! Ernaldo was super friendly, his wife and daughter are great too. The breakfast and afternoon snack were wonderful. Tied for best room of the trip. Didn't have the views but made up for it with quality of the rooms. Lemon garden was great!

We stayed here for two nights in the middle of our trip to Italy. It was such a nice place and a beautiful place to be! We were there in April so the touristy season hadn't started up much. There weren't many other people there with us. The lemon garden was not open when we were there but we could walk out there and it seems like it would be pretty in the summer. The hotel staff was nice and friendly and the breakfast and lunch buffet were great! The room was pretty big by Italian standards so was the bathroom. It was quiet and comfortable too. It was great to be in the old part of the city. It felt like real Italy, not the touristy part. Albergo Marina is very close to the restaurants and shopping. A bit of a walk from the train station but very doable, even with suitcases.

We just returned from 4 nights in Monterosso and must say that this is a nice little Hotel. The owner ( Eraldo ) is the nicest man you will ever meet, the hotel is clean and the rooms are comfortable in the old part of Monterosso but close to everything. They have free luggage and 1 person pick up from the train station, afternoon snacks, cappuccino any time of day and as much as you want, a good breakfast with eggs if wanted ,made by Alessandro who is very nice and works hard. Eraldo recommende a nice Pizza place down the road which makes perfect pizzas and calzone and wont break the bank. It's very close to the beach where you can fo for drinks overlooking the sea, and they even give munchies with your drink. All in all a very good time in Monterosso, and if you go there say hello to Eraldo for me, from (Luigi from Canada).

Very rude American girl at the service desk. Our room and bathroom were full of black mold. I would never stay here again.

Great location, quiet, clean, staff friendly and very helpful. Stayed here 6 nights end of September. Three women travelling together - our room was generously sized, beds comfortable, buffet breakfast and afternoon snack satisfying.

Luggage service to and from the train station is a perk. Short distance, in fact, delightful walk, made much nicer by not lugging suitcases! Elevator, air conditioning, and internet access available. Guests are encouraged to write their own restaurant recommendations in a scrapbook in the lobby.

The Lemon Garden was not in full swing during our stay, yet still offers a delightful place to relax and enjoy the view.

For the budget conscious traveler, Albergo Marina offers great value.

Albergo Marina was a bit less than we hoped for, though there are not so many choices in Monterosso. The hotel was reasonably clean and the room was OK. It was reasonably priced. If we visit the Cinque Terre again, we would stay in Vernazza.
