Maria Capellini Rooms
Ranked #2 of 39 Vernazza B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 30, 2011

The cozy room is a small apartment, clean as can be, Maria and Giacomo are the best hosts Giacomo helps you with your luggage and explains all you need to know. Be aware the trip to the room is quite a few steps up with no lift but once your arrive its worth the effort.
It has a 3/4 kitchen (no stove), all the em entities you need in a kitchen, rather small bath room.

We tried to book with Maria but she was full for our dates. She kindly took our reservation for a room that her friend Barbara rents out to vacationers. We were very excited to find sweet Barbara waiting for us at the train station, she took us to the room which was close...very close to the train station, and very clean and nice.
No regrets at all, in fact it was fun to get to talk with her on arrival and upon leaving. The room was nice and we had a great visit.
Train noise is probably a factor anywhere in Vernazza, so that is something to consider.

We stayed here for 4 nights in April 2011. We stayed in two apartments - one on the square and one on the fourth floor. The location is excellent - very close to everything notably the walkways to the other villages. The units are a good size and comfortable. Bathroom in the 4th floor apartment was only adequate. The hosts were absolutely delightful and most welcoming. Vernazza is a great place to stay to see the Cinque Terre which is fabulous. Getting in and out by car is tricky as the roads are narrow and the parking well away from the town but the arrangements for getting into town are fairly simple and the place is well worth it.

The Charming room was indeed charming, as are Giacomo and Maria. We had 4 nights there in June.

We booked several months before arriving and our emails were always promptly answered. We texted them from the train on our way to Vernazza, and were greeted by Giacomo as we approached the property.

The room was well decorated, clean and comfortable.

My wife and I just finished a 2 night stay at the "cozy studio" (Maria Capellini Rooms) in Vernazza. The room was exactly what we were looking for in the Cinque Terre. We were right on the main little piazza, and we felt like we were living like the locals.

As for the specifics, the apartment was quite big, with a kitchen area, a comfortable bed, plenty of windows, and a ceiling fan. The room was always cool, so there was no problem there. The washroom was fine as well. The only thing the room lacked that might have been nice was wireless internet, but Vernazza does have a couple of internet cafes on the main street if you want to keep in touch.

Finally, the best part: Giacomo and Maria. As others have mentioned, they are wonderful hosts, very friendly. Giacomo was especially informative and went above and beyond getting train times for our departure to Nice. He also hauled one of our heavy suitcases up several flights of narrow, steep stairs upon arrival. He was just great.

Like others have said, try to book Giacomo and Maria's other "charming room" if you have mobility issues, because apparently there aren't as many stairs (if any at all). But for us it was no problem. Do not hesitate to book a room here if travelling to the Cinque Terre. We loved it.

Excellent location in a delightful town. Very comfortable room with thoughtful decorating. We were met in la piazza by a smiling Giacomo and that set the tone for our time in Cinque Terre.

We stayed in the Charming Room right on the water which was an excellently convenient location without any steps. Plus the gelateria next door was superb. Highly recommend this accommodation if you're staying anywhere at Cinque Terre.

My husband and 10 year old son just had the priveledge of staying at Maria's room that is adjacent to the square. The accomodation was great value for the price we paid for our two nights stay in Vernazza. My experience with Giacomo's and Maria's welcoming hospitality echoes all the other glowing reviews. I would also like to add that Giacomo was particlarly helpful at assisiting us cancel our hire car when we couldn't reach the hire office on our mobile and he left several messagess for us in Italian using his own phone and he also helped us check out the train timetables so that we could continue our trip easily. Two of our favourites dishes from our trip to Italy were experienced in Vernazza. One was the pesto served on fresh pasta and the other the fresh anchovies that we ordered from each of the menus of the restaurants that back onto the door that leads from Maria's place to the square. The convenience, friendliness and wonderful experiences we had at Vernazza will make for a return visit to Maria's Rooms. One recommendation I would have is to check which room you have rented beforehand if you have mobility issues, there are about four flights of stairs that the super fit Septagenarian Giacomo tackles with a suitcase! However, some may find it challenging. I noticed that some other reviews have mentioned a ground floor alternative.
