“Would not recommend this place”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

Paid for ocean view room 4 months early and ended up with a room over the kitchen with no view. The lift was on one side and the stairwell on the other side. It was very noisy and the staff were less than accommodating. This place has so much potential but everything seemed backward. If you do not get an ocean view room, there is no point in staying at this hotel.

This was the third hotel in Monterosso that our travel agent attempted to book for us - the first was already booked and we did not like the second one that she suggested because you had to access it by climbing a very long flight of stone stairs, so we ended up here. I wish I could say that the third time was the charm, but it was not. On the positive side, the location is wonderful and the view beautiful. We really did not find taking the shuttle up and down the hill inconvenient and there is something to be said for not staying in the center of town and in a quieter location. As other reviewers have noted, however, the staff are not particularly friendly or helpful and are rather rule-bound and inflexible.

Stayed for three nights. The view makes up for other minor shortcomings. The shuttle gets to be a pain after awhile . The day staff is a bit curt. The buffet breakfast is average and they charge you extra for some items. The orange juice is Tang. This place is rules based. Today a couple took their breakfast outside. When another couple wanted to do the same thing and mentioned the other couple, they were told, "it isn't possible!" As we were leaving we saw the first couple quietly eating outside. It is very German that way.

My wife and I spent 3 nights (9/9 - 9/12/13). The hotel's location is excellent, high above Monterosso with great views down the coast. The hotel, rooms and grounds are immaculate. Both the breakfast staff and the food are very good. However, the front desk staff are not very friendly and seem to be bothered when you ask questions. The location is great but restaurants are in the village below. You have to wait for the complimentary taxi to take you down and then have to schedule your return based on the taxi schedule coming back. We had a car and opted to drive back/forth ourselves everyday but the the long, steep, very windy and very narrow road may be a challenge for some.

Great, world-class views from front-facing rooms. Good breakfast; tables assigned by room and always the same; breakfast staff was pleasant. Bell desk day staff were nice; night staff were a little nicer. Building was always clean and in very good shape. Pleasant grounds around building. Long, steep, twisting road to town is over 1km long. Nearest beach is 1.2km from hotel, down same road. Would not recommend walking up or down road to / from hotel. Vehicle traffic on this road, while limited, can come around corners quickly. Shuttle bus is regular and fills quickly (and competitively). The shuttle bus will make additional trips if necessary. Same shuttle occasionally serves other hotels despite Suisse Belvedere signage on shuttle. Mattresses were firm. Rules of hotel were typical and not imposing. Would definitively stay here again.

Room Tip: Front facing rooms have great views. Book early.

Outstanding view from the room balcony. For hiking the number 1 trail north to Levanto or on the hills round Monterosso, you can start walking straight from the hotell.
Nice clean rooms With AC and friendly staff.

Room Tip: Rooms with seaview is almost a must.

Hotel was worth the drive! Beautiful views, accommodating staff, didn't want to leave. Our room had a balcony that provided a view of Cinque Terre and the bay, however if you did not have a balcony room there were plenty of places set up to experience it. The place was clean and charming look forward to going back some day.

Room Tip: There is no restaurant at the site, however there is a shuttle that will take you to and from town...
