Vernazza is a true jewel but finding a place to stay isn't easy. The rooms that Tonino Basso rents out are immaculate and well worth your visit. The owner, Tonino Basso, is a true joy and meets you when you get off the train in Vernazza to show you the room. The rooms are modern, clean, and less than a 2 minute walk to the train station and the hiking trails, and less than a 5 minute walk to the marina.

Found this B&B through the Routard guide book, and I decided to take it mainly because the rooms looked clean, modern and it has a free internet access. The location however is a bonus that I did not expect. Vernazza is the most magical village in the Cinque Terre, the B&B is a walking distance from the train station and the marina, located in a calm area, next to a Il Pirata, a place that serves breakfast and sicilian pastries. Tonino was very friendly and seriously, what more can you ask?

This is a great spot to stay in Vernazza. It is at the top of the hill on the opposite end of the town from the harbor, less than 5 minutes from the train. Tonino is great and available if needed. The rooms are on the small side, but incredibly clean, they do a great job. If you happen to have enough people to rent all 4 rooms (my family had 3 of them), all the better. They share a hallway with its own locked door, so you can pretty much turn the hallway into a big hang out. Some of the rooms are better than others, I particularly recommend the room that has the terrace overlooking the town road.

Here's why we liked being up there: it's quiet, pretty, and right above Il Pirata, the best place in town for breakfast and laughs. But the best part is the stroll you will take from your room to the harbor (where all the life is). It's barely 10 minutes if you're moving really slow, and you get to pass everything- townspeople, shops, eateries, kids, pets, and everything else. For my money, it's one of the most charming strolls you will make anywhere. I loved taking that walk over and over just to breathe in the magic of Vernazza.

We arrived at the Cinque Terra after a long long day's travel and was met at the station by Tonino. You could not find a more friendly person if you tried. We were escorted to the outskirts of Vernazza and Tonino shows us to the rooms. My wife and I are on our honeymoon and whilst it was not the most private of places it was a great stay.

The rooms are lovely and clean and Tonino cleans them everyday. He advised however that he would clean them at 10am everyday but over the five nights we stayed there he came earlier and earlier every day so that by the last day he was rocking up at 8 am. Also the walls are practically paper thin so don't expect to not hear what is going on next door. Additionally, the towls are the thinnest i have ever encountered in any hotel.

Security wise there is no safe in the room but the entire floor is locked so its ok and we felt very safe leaving our valuables there. Otherwise I would recommend this place very highly.

Buit on the plus side considering that Vernazza is probably the busiest of all the towns it is a superb location. For breakfast head downstairs to Il Piratte to Massimo and his brother who made awesome baked goods for breakfast. It's probably the best place in Vernazza for breakfast, avoid it for dinner!

Our son's wedding was in Vernazza. We stayed at Tonino's and loved the accommodations. The beds were super comfortable. The rooms were very clean. And Tonino was so nice to us. His rooms are at the quiet end of town and situated right next to Il Pirata, where you can get a wonderful breakfast every morning. This building also has a small elevator which is not an easy amenity to find in Italy. The train to nearby towns is a short walk from Tonino's, as is the shopping and restaurants, swimming and the gelato in Vernazza. We had a delightful stay in Vernazza as did our wedding guests.

This was our favorite stop on our trip! We arrived via train and followed Tonino's directions to go to his friend's shop right by the train station. His friends, who had a wonderful little shop with local food, wine, etc. called Tonino and he came to meet us in less than 5 mins. He was very friendly and showed us to our rooms with were in a residential apartment building (nicer than it sounds) in town just up the hill. Vernazza is amazingly beautiful and the people were so friendly and warm. We would go back in a heartbeat. We stayed there over Easter and it was a unique experience to see how the town celebrated, decorating the town, a parade and a religious ceremony just outside the church right by the water.

The rooms were clean, convenient and cozy! Vernazza has limited accommodation options but we were pleasantly surprised by Tonino's. It was a no frills place but was close to the town center, the trail and had all the comforts we needed for this leg of our trip. Tonino leaves you with a key to the floor and a separate key for your room. Each room has private, clean bathrooms and a laptop set up with internet access.

Tips:
-Hike between the 5 towns in Cinque Terre, enjoy the exercise, the views and explore each town with its unique character and amazing food!
-Have a cannoli and cappuccino downstairs in the restaurant, the owners are twin guys from sicily and have a loyal following.
