A short walk up the hill in the new part of Monteresso this hotel is perfect. We had arranged for our luggage to be delivered by a porter but could have managed no trouble at all from the point where our coach dropped us off. Clean and with a comfortable bed. Very friendly, efficient staff, who checked in our large group with no bother at all even though we were a bit late arriving. We had a balcony which looked over the gardens and pool. We had booked dinner the first night, a set menu, and this was very nice. Breakfasts were good too. We really enjoyed doing the trail from the Monterosso end. Plenty of lovely places to eat nearby and don't forget to walk through the tunnel to the old part of town.

Room Tip: We were a group of 15 and I am sure everyone was happy with their room.

Spent two nights at this hotel recently. Hotel is in a great location, quiet with beautiful gardens. Room was very clean with a nice balcony. Easy to walk to both the new and old town. Hotel has a friendly, welcoming feel. Monterosso is a great place to stay in exploring the five towns, easy access to the train, restaurants and walking trails. Hotel offers free parking on site. Dinner can be taken at the hotel for a very reasonable price. Staff was professional and helpful. Highly recommend.

This hotel is hidden in the quiet part of town away from all the tourist & car traffic and set up on a bit of a hill, as is everything in Cinque Terre. In amongst nice gardens is a cool pool & a nice courtyard with a few tables & chairs.
The room we had was on 3rd floor and had a balcony from which you could catch the sea view & shutters to roll down to block out the sun or light at night. Room was quite large and bed firm but OK. Bathroom was small & shower space tiny, big letdown was the sachets of shampoo = bring your own!!
Interesting option was the half board which includes breakfast & dinner. We had a group so that was on each night, they all loved the salad bar and the fresh fruit, rest of the meal was a bit hit and miss, but at €15 you can't go far wrong. Found breakfast each day to be excellent with FRESH and I mean fresh bread plus plenty of other selections of cereals, yoghurt, fruit & hard boiled eggs - no American breakfast in this part of the world.
Staff were all excellent both at reception and breakfast/dinner and extremely efficient
Big advantage was proximity to railway station and 2min to the beach, where there was part paid & part free. All in all a great place to base yourself for doing the Cinque Terre.

This is a great place to stay in Monterosso, it is in a very quiet area, having stayed in the old town previously (which is beautiful) but you had the sounds of trains coming through your room all night. Villa Adriana is the place to stay if you want peace and quiet, impeccably clean rooms, a beautiful garden, a great pool and delightful staff. They offer a wonderful reasonably priced meal every night which had the best salad bar ever. I can highly recommend Villa Adriana.

Looking recently refurbished and kept immaculately clean we spent a very pleasant 4 nights here. Furnishings are basic but not cheap. Very comfortable firm bed and nice crisp sheets. Most of the towels were new appearing, white and plush with the name of the hotel. Wall mounted liquid soap/ shampoo dispenser.....bring your own soap bar / conditioner. Decent size safe (not laptop size/ no outlet). Good quiet AC wired so windows must be shut....but the sound of the waves in the distance was lovely too and it was relatively quiet. Wi Fi pretty good and included. While there was a 2 prong outlet in the first bathroom I had to borrow a 3 prong adapter when we moved to the second.

There are 2 buildings and most rooms have a small balcony although a couple have wrap around terraces. Most rooms do not have much of a view but we were VERY fortunate to have #34 for the first 3 nights, THE room with a relatively private small balcony, bathroom with a window and THE view. Note this was just luck (or were we so charming?) and, I believe, the price is the same regardless of the view or if there is a balcony/ view. The rate is relatively high but considering what options are locally you do get quality for your euro.

Nice clean but cold pool with 8 or 10 loungers, some on a separate level, get full sun 1/2 day. Pool towels at reception (you can take them to beach). Discount card upon request for one of the beach clubs and 95% of the beach is set up so you pay.

At 15e for 4 course dinner (salad station with a hot hors d'oeuvre or two, a choice of one of 3 first course and one of 3 mains (fish, meat or cheese dish) and dessert or fruit was an amazing bargain. Other than having to stand on line for the 1st course, the service was superb. Every dish tasty and lovingly prepared. With house wine 10 e and others not much more, cocktail/ martini at 2.50 e we dined here nightly and thoroughly satisfied. You can't get a main in a 5 Terra restaurant for less than 12 e but of course you do get to sit in a romantic piazza or by the sea.

Breakfast was fair with some fresh fruit and home baked goods....don't come expecting a full American breakfast.

Surprisingly, there is a little chapel between the 2 buildings with mass at 8 AM for those inclined.

Groups do stay here but weren't an issue.

Reception, Simonetta in particular, were great and very responsive to every email.

Oh..and that driveway is NOT that steep. Considering all the hills in the 5 towns and that most come to hike here anyway what's the big deal???

And did I comment about how clean this place is?

It is difficult to find a good place in chinque terre that is comfortable and well located. However I recommend Villa Adriana. The room was clean, have balcony(no ocean view) regular breakfast,and free parking. The staff was nice and ready always to help you. The hotel is 5 min walking distance from the old town of Monterroso. You need to claim a little hill before getting to the lobby. Not to bad if you have light bags. There is a cleaner close to hotel and they bring your clothes back to the hotel.

We stayed at Hotel Villa Adriana for 3 nights in September. My husband and I went to this resort for our 30th wedding anniversary. Through Tripadvisor, we found that Monterosso was one of the best towns to stay at in Cinque Terre. The reviews were correct!!!!! We went to each town and we loved Monterosso the best, so it was nice to make Villa Adriana our home base. It is 5 minutes from the train station. The hotel is like a little villa. The only problem is the steep hill to get to reception when you have luggage, but a good work out when you are eating within the town. They gave us a nice room with a beautiful room when I told them about our anniversary. The room was big and clean. Bathroom was large and clean. Breakfast was included and a had a decent amount of food. The staff was very friendly, helpful and informative. I would definitely stay at this hotel again when I return to Cinque Tere.
