“VERY near to the train station”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

Which was good for us with a lot of luggage and a sprained ankle. And ear muffles. Vernazza is a small and lovely village so everything is nearby. The room was clean, but small with an even smaller bathroom. We accidentally left a few things behind, sun glasses, credit cards and a shirt, which were picked up three days later by a truly honest and helpful Australian couple, who sent it on to us. Wonder why the cleaning staff didn't notice them?? The hostess not very communicative (language barrier?).
We were recommended to have breakfast at Blue Marlin, just down the street which we think was a good option.

Conveniently located to the bus stop and train station. Our room faced the back so we had no issues with noise that other people complained about (room 3). That being said the room was small and the bathroom even smaller. The problem with the bathroom was that given its size the shower curtain invariably either pushed out from the wall and thus flooded the floor or clung next to you. The air conditioner was great--quiet and if you wanted to really chill down the room it did thus quickly. Would not spend 10 euro for breakfast--orange juice from a box that had way too much sugar in it.

The accommodation was clean but very small and close to trains which made it noisy . The hosts were not very good on communications on walks and other essential tourist information. The breakfast was ok

We stayed for three nights here, and the location is really great. As vernazza is really a tourist attraction and busy, this accommodation is just on the other side of the train station, where hardly anyone is!

But the rooms are a bit noisy, as you hear the train the whole night, and the churchbells (which is very near) start at 7am. We did not have a lot of contact with the staff, apart from checking in and checking out.

Also the maid starts cleaning early (for us), around 8am you can hear the vacuum cleaner throughout the building.

Generally ok, but not the best placed we've stayed during our trip trough Italy.

Stayed here two nights. Pensione sorisso is a very nice place to stay in Vernazza. As almost any place in town,it's a bit close to the train station and therefore a bit noisy, even at night. However, the staff is very friendly, the rooms are clean,and the bathrooms modern looking and cute. Very much recommend this place.

This boutique hotel is located a short walk from the train station, close to the Main Street in town, and the entrance to the trail to Corneglia. We enjoyed our stay here very much. It is very much a pensione, but very well appointed. Our room overlooked the hills, and the church bells tolling the hours added to the charm. We had no complaints, but travelers looking for "extras" may not be drawn here. Coffee is available in the morning, but excellent breakfasts are available in town, esp. at the nearby Blue Marlin. The hotel is near the station, and train roll through at all hours. This may not suit others; we were not bothered by it.

Room Tip: Be sure to request an "en suite" bathroom, if you do not wish to share facilities in the h...

We stayed 2 nights in this place (against Rick Steve's advice). The main reason was the close proximity to the train station and our phobia of stairs that the other rooms better view required. Paid 70 Euro for a double with shared bathroom. There was a basin with water in the room, so that made the trips to the bathroom less. Also, we only had to share the bathroom among only 2 other rooms on the same floor. The bathroom was clean, and the hot water was thunderous. Minus points are there's no lift, and the room is pretty small. Furniture's out of date. I thinks there wifi at the cafe/reception area, but there's definitely no wifi reception in the room. Tips, if you are using this place as a base to the other towns, pls buy in advance some train tickets as the ticket counter opens only after 8am.
