“this is a great place to stay”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

I really recomend this hotel and Monterosso as a great home base for a Cinque Terre vacation. I would stay at least 3 nights and if you want to relax a bit, four nights. It takes awhile to get to any location in Cinque Terre, so give yourself plenty of time to relax. You might read that the bathrooms are small, they are, but not in away that ruins your stay, it is more just funny. The staff is very attentive and they keep the hotel spotless. There are a few langue moments, so brush up on some of your simple Itallian words so you can help out. Enjoy the feel of being in an Italian hotel run by Italians, not a fake American style hotel. You can walk to the beach in two minutes. Turn to the right at the end of the block for the free beach in the shadow of the old "gigantic" statue carved into the beach rock. It only takes 8 minutes to walk from the train station and everyone does it. Don't bother with a taxi when you arrive. The breakfast buffet is very nice and fills you up for your daily adventure. this is a charming fun place to stay. Fee wi-fi in the bar and lounge area. Hint: if you are on the first floor you can get wi-fi in your room. But turn it off and enjoy the beauty.

Room Tip: first floor gets wi-fi access

Excellently located. Private parking place which is unique in the area, friendly staff, cosy rooms. Family hotel, we recommend it for a few days as starting point for Cinque Terre. Hiking trails take more time than indicated and are not so easy as you expect.

Firstly the owners are lovely, very helpful and gave us a warm family welcome. Could not fault them at all. Breakfast wasn't great, but may suite many others. We were hoping for a bit of old Italian hospitality that I believe comes from most places on the area, but it sadly just felt a bit outdated rather than old world charm. The location was probably our biggest disappointment. The area felt like a caravan park, and for us, it was our least favourite area of the region. The airconditioning stopped working on the last night, and the fan didn't really offer that much relief. I think hotel 5 terre would be fine with for families, but not really for a young couple.

This is a very nice hotel in a good location, close to the beach in the new part of Monterosso and an easy walk from the train station. Staff were very nice and very helpful. Rooms are comfortable, spotlessly clean and nicely furnished. Breakfast was great. Our only criticism is that there were no tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms and if we wanted a cup of tea, we had to pay 2 euros in the bar. Otherwise, highly recommended.

Superb service. Helpful staff. Very little English from the staff but communication is not hard. Several British and American tourist stayed here during our stay. Conveniently located to the train station.

(Third block, heading west from the train station)
