“Not bad.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014 via mobile

Average for everything but the town was great and we weren't in the hotel much. The internet was not very stable. The staff seemed a little rude but always helped when asked. Location is great. They would not allow us to take their towels to the beach but they did offer us some other towels for a 10euro deposit.

Hotel Palme is ideally situated in the small village of Monterosso, not far from the train station and from the sea. The place is welcoming, personnel is helpful and smiling. The breakfast buffet is huge and quite varied and is what you need, should you want to hike all morning in the paths all around Monterosso and you’ll need it!

On the downside, the room, albeit comfy and clean, is small for the price paid, the walls are not very thick so that the loud tourists in the nearby rooms are heard pretty clear. The bathroom is minuscule especially if you’re over average height and I don’t know why they put extremely viscous soaps and shower gels but it’s annoying to wash yourself several times to get rid of the always-slippery feeling you get from it.

All in all, a good place to stay if you need a buffet and a clean room, just disappointed by the noise and the bathroom.

Outstanding location - quiet but not too far out or up the hills; nice clean hotel. Hair dryers are useless. Hot water went out after a rain storm though. Given the early checkout times, they should have been working to fix it first thing in the morning. It would have been reasonable if the staff had been honest about the time needed to fix the problem.

A great place to stay in Monterossa. Very handy to the railway station (5-6min level walk) and the beach just 50m away.
The hotel is not a Hyatt, Hilton type hotel and does not set out to be one. It is a typical Italian/European hotel with clean comfortable rooms. The hotel management and staff are very pleasant and helpful. The breakfast has a good selection which should suit most tastes.
There are lots of cafes/restaurants nearby and even more in the old town which is about a 20min walk along the waterfront.
The hotel is set back from the road. The front area is a stoned courtyard set out with tables and chairs. A nice place to relax and have a wine - together with a good selection of complimentary nibbles!
I our view Monterossa is the pick of the villages to stay in as it has the best selection of restaurants and shopping and a big plus it is basically flat which make getting around easy. The other villages are smaller and have quite steep streets. We were very happy that our travel agent booked us into Hotel Palme and would love to go back and spend more time there.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are cooler as they do not get direct sun. While it wasn't a problem when we we...

This Hotel is a great place to stay in Monterossa al Mare .... It's in the newer part of town, but you can drag your bags from the railway station (easiest way to get there). It is about 50meters from the beach and many great cafes and restaurants, and only a short walk through the tunnel to the old town, the magnificent church and the start of the walk to Vernazza.
The hotel provides a fantastic buffet breakfast and really friendly cocktail bar in the foyer - very nice to relax (catch up on emails with free wifi) and mingle with other guests.
The only odd thing was a fridge was in our room, but were told any alcohol in the fridge would be confiscated .... Really minor issue tho.
I have recommended a couple of people stay there and would definitely stay there again myself - great value.
We stayed in June 2013 (bit tardy with the review!)

I chose to stay at Monterosso during my 2-day visit at the Cinque Terre out of last-minute decision, and I was pleased that it worked out quite well.
I arrived at Monterosso in a night train, but the hotel was only short (and flat) walk away from the train station. The hotel has an elevator which is a plus for those carrying luggages.
The room was clean, tidy, and has many international channels (including Bloomberg TV) that made me almost feel at home.
I departed the hotel very early in the morning to catch the 6:50am train to Milan, and the hotel packed a small breakfast to-go. It was a nice thing for them to do for someone who's often on the road. Overall I'd recommend this hotel for travelers to the Cinque Terre.

Hotel Palme was such a great place to stay for my weekend in Cinque Terre. It was very affordable from a student standpoint, but would be a nice place for any family to stay as well. The staff were kind and inviting, and the place was clean, comfortable and accomodating. It's a 5 minute walk from both the train station and the beach, and there are tons of little shops and restaurants around to help you enjoy your time in Monterrosso al Mare. The breakfast was great too! I'd definitely recommend this place.
