The peace and quiet. The view of the village. Staff and especially the owner were very friendly.
Friendliness, helpfulness and hospitality of staff, Stunning view of lemon grove and the sea from breakfast terrace
Unaware of steep climb on a rocky path to get there with heavy luggage
Modern, clean and tidy. The village of Monterosso ala Mare is also great and makes a fantastic base for exploring the Cinque Terre.
The hotel/guest house is nice and contempary however the steep path and steps to hotel would make it unsuitable to anyone with limited mobility. The rooms were also smaller than I would have liked. The above are minor criticisms though and overall it is a nice place to stay.
The warm hospitality of the hosts was extremely memorable. They provided wonderful dinner recommendations and assisted with train timetables etc. The rooms were lovely and modern and very clean.
Future guests should be aware that there is a steep series of steps to reach the hotel, however the climb is well worth the effort.
I liked the setting, the view, the modern decor, the lovely breakfast on the terrace, and the very friendly and hospitable staff.
