“Poor value in Vernazza”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

Our room with Ivo Basso was slightly larger then double bed in the room. Bathroom was OK. Up several flights of stairs. Only good thing for free wi-fi. Ivo was pleasant and helpful. Very poor value. The room had a window overlooking the main street but there was a balcony.

My boyfriend and I stayed in one of Ivo's room for two nights in November. We had read from Rick Steve's travel books that Ivo has good prices and is super friendly. Rick was not wrong!

When we arrived in Vernazza we were greeted by Ivo and his cousin. While Ivo had another appointment, his cousin took us to the room and checked us in. The whole town is sweet and charming, as are the people that live there. We were there during the off season so I think we got to see more of the town's people out and about.

We stayed in the single bedroom. The room was moderately sized and had everything we needed. There is no TV, but you don't really need one for entertainment. The town is the entertainment! Bathroom was well kept. We loved the giant dresser in the room because we were able to fit our whole suitcases in there, which left more room for us to spread out.

Everything in Vernazza was so laid back and charming. We loved the restaurants that we tried. Make sure to taste the pesto, since the Cinque Terre is the birth place of pesto!

TIP: If you enjoy hiking (and you're in decent shape) we recommend the hike from Vernazza to Montorosso. It was stunningly beautiful! Because it was the off season we didn't see a single hiker on the trail. The hike takes roughly two hours. Most beautiful pictures we took in Italy!

My husband and I recently stayed in Vernazza prior to eloping and loved every minute of it. Ivo was so friendly and the room was clean and welcoming. Vernazza is a beautiful place, not to be missed, so too is Ivo's hospitality. We loved it there and would recommend staying there to any of our friends. Best suited for couples, this is a quaint and comfortable place to stay while enjoying one of the most beautiful places we have ever visited. I would definitely go back, and plan to! Grazie Mille Ivo!

My husband and I loved our time in Vernazza. Ivo met us at the train station and the room was as described. It wasn't huge, but had everything we needed, including a little fridge which he had kindly left some water and beer for us!

There were plenty of stairs, but Cinque Terre has lots of stairs everywhere, so it didn't bother us much - great way to work off the pasta!

We didn't noticed any of the street noise that others mentioned, but we were there in mid-October, so maybe the streets were quieter in shoulder season?

The room was great, I recommend you stay here. And more so, stay in Vernazza. It has recovered from the flood last year and was our favourite of the 5 towns in CInque Terre.

We found the location just perfect, a short walk to the sea one way and a short walk to the train station the other way. The trail through town connecting hiking paths to Corniglia and Monterosso passes within 50 feet of the front door. The stairway to our room was daunting, but having a bird's eye view of the center of town was worth it. We were very comfortable in the room. Everything was modern, worked well and was clean. Ivo is a great host. We had very helpful email communication with him months before the trip. Ivo's help and welcome at arrival, his advice on local highlights, our comfortable stay, flexibility on some details and assistance at departure made it more like a visit to family than a commercial room rental transaction. We would recommend staying here to get a great feel for Vernazza, Cinque Terre and the friendly people that live there. DG/JG

Everything about the room and Ivo was as we had heard. Due to a one day train strike our arrival time fluctuated and each time I called Ivo he said not to worry he would meet us and everything would be fine. Yes, it was more than fine. He met us at the train and he carried my suitcase up the steep (65) steps. The room is the perfect place to watch what happens in the town from early morning until late at night. At times there was a bit of street noise but we slept fine. The room is small but has all the necessary requirements for sleeping, bathing, and then seeing the beautiful area. I especially enjoyed Tuesday morning watching the little street market and hanging my clothes on the clotheline under my window. I felt like a local!

We really enjoyed our stay (4 nights) in Ivo's room in Vernazza. He met us with Telma (his dog) as promised at the train station and was a great host. Gave us a few tips and pointers on the area restaurants etc. The room was spotless and very centrally located. The only negatives (minor) is the 5th floor walk-up and the street noise until about 11:00 at night. We just stayed up until 11:00 and that cured it!
I highly recommend Ivo's rooms and the price could not be beat!!

Room Tip: Some street noise
