Rina Rooms
Ranked #28 of 39 Vernazza B&B and Inns
Reviewed 21 June 2014

Don't let the three stars put you off if you are in Vernazza with a backpack and plan to hike your tail off in the Cinque Terra for a couple of days. The benefits are an easy location, comfortable and relatively clean space, good shower, and easy pre-booking on the internet. If you are looking for easy access, personal touch and a good breakfast move on down the trail. We never saw Rina or anybody for three days. We arrived later in the evening after battling a train strike all day, tired and hungry - in the rain. With two roller bags on cobblestone we walked about 100 yards down into town then turned right at the 'trailhead' for Monterosso, walked up maybe 20 steps with a turn to the left - Rina Rooms door on the left - pushed the button, door opened, walked up twelve steps to the first terrace, went through another door, up twelve steps to the three Rina Rooms for let, saw our name on the door with a key, opened the door and walked up twelve steps to our space. Laid on the bed and died. Then saw the crass note that said, 'leave 200 Euros here in cash' and the processed garbage for breakfast. Oh well, it still worked as a place to sleep and to take a shower.

This was our second time to the Cinque Terra (2007) and it was so sad to see the dysfunction as compared to the first time. Seaside trails washed out, nearly completely ineffective park management (par for the course in Italy - apparently yet another government thief wrecked the finances and is now living on a yacht in Greece). Townfolk were still hurting from the 2011 mudslide. Everybody and everything was so tired. Don't pay any attention to the trial closure south to Corniglia - just no one to take your money at the trailhead - the trail was lovely and relatively uncrowded because of the trail closed sign. The trail from Vernazza to Monterosso was like a two-mountain highway choked with RV's - narrow and super crowded. But, the views are spectacular! Still worth it, but it could be SO MUCH BETTER.

Like most places in Vernazza, this one is up a lot of stairs, but was easy to access, near the station, and we were met by the owner even though our train arrived late. This B & B is plainly, but comfortably furnished, with a little kitchen and a lounge room for our use only, so we had plenty of room. There was a rooftop patio for us to use, with a small view of the harbour. The only downside for the price was the breakfast, which was all composed of very refined packaged breads, toast, cereals, with no fresh fruit, meat, cheese or juice so we ate in the village instead.

During our two-day stay at Rina Rooms, we quickly discovered a mold stench coming from the bathroom that was so strong it filled our entire room. We were unable to find any staff members after checking in, so there was nothing we could do. While the bed was comfortable, there was no type of service or breakfast at this "Bed and Breakfast." We changed our reservation months in advance and upon showing up we were charged an additional, unannounced fee. We were also forced to pay entirely in cash. Rina Rooms did not feel like a legitimate establishment. I would recommend spending a few extra bucks to stay elsewhere.

Room Tip: Book elsewhere

Vernazza is a very expensive town and Rina Rooms was a bargain! We stayed in a room that had an entrance with a table ready for breakfast and bathroom.
The place is pretty close to the train station and, more importantly, you don't have to climb stairs to reach it!
The only flaw would be the furniture which is very grandma style.
Owners are very nice and helpful.

We added Vernazza to our itinerary in the very last minute and realised it was difficult to find a decently priced hotel during summer.

Out of all the places we stayed in italy, this had the largest room. Our room was actually more of a suite. It had a hall with sofa and tv where all you can eat cold breakfast along with coffee was set up even before we checked in.Had a fridge where they kept, milk and yogurt.

The bedroom was very cute with windows opening to surrounding alleys. I would say this is the most authentic place we have stayed it, almost felt like our own:) For ~60euro a night in peak season its a steal.

The stairs that lead to the trails to monteross and corniglia were right at the b&b. 2 mins walk to the harbour and railway stattion.

Thanks Elisabetta for a lovely three night stay and for going the extra mile for us. Such a friendly reception, and a chance to meet some lovely Vernazza locals. Lovely comfortable beds, and a lovely sitting area for our five-person party. Bathroom is newly renovated and ensuite style.This place is perfect for couples, families or friends who just need a place to sleep and relax at the end of the day. Honestly, you won't be spending much time there, the cinque terre is stunning!

Had a rest in August, 2013. Very convenient located between the station and a beach. really clean number and bathroom. We were lucky that to us got also a drawing room with a teapot, a coffee-machine, the refrigerator and flakes. The free breakfast is modest, but very opportunely. Our number on photos I didn't find, an exit to a roof too didn't see.
