This hotel was pretty awesome, although a little pricey. The furnishings were not quite as lush as many of the hotels we stayed in at the same price range, but the location is pretty perfect. It sits right on the beach in Monterosso al Mare. It is the "new" section of town, but the old town is just a 10 minute walk up the road and there is a LOT going on at this end. Sometimes that was good and sometimes that was bad (like if you are really tired). We had a second floor balcony room with a wonderful view, which we spent a lot of time on. No air conditioning, but if you leave the balcony doors open all day and night, you can get a great ocean breeze. There was also a fan provided. The bathroom was pretty small- not a shower you want to try and shave your legs in. The hotel's service was outstanding- the best customer service we saw in Italy! Both Ella and Andrea, the owner, were particularly helpful and accommodating. They would bend over backwards to make your stay perfect, recommend places to eat in and out of town, or whatever you could possibly need. My one and only complaint is that it can get quite noisy at night. There are people out late at the restaurants and bars just a story below and since we had the window open (we had to in that heat), we heard their drunken banter until at least 1 or 2 in the morning. It might be better if you are on the third or fourth story and would be much more quiet (but no view) if you had a room facing the back. Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel. You can pay for wifi or beach towels.
