Good Value in MonterossoPosted Oct 21, 2013 on Hotels.com
While our stay started out a bit shaky -- there was a miscommunication about how we were going to get in to our room -- but it all worked out. Our room was clean and well cared-for. The downside to staying at their second location is that it is a 15+-minute walk to the main location for breakfast and it is literally 177 steps up and down to our room. We're not wimpy people, but it did get tiring. On the upside, the housekeeper is wonderful and kept our room super tidy. And the owner is absolutely charming; any annoyances we had quickly dissolved after meeting her. All in all it worked out fine and was a great value.

Great B&BPosted Oct 3, 2013 on Hotels.com
Great location, close to the beach, restaurants and a very short walk to the train station. Cherry was a wonderful host who made us feel at home. The breakfast had quite the variety and Cherry's omelettes were very good! Room was spacious and very clean.

Nice hotel and charming staff.Posted Sep 18, 2013
Hotel owner warm and helpful. The room was well kept. Only problem was the stairs, me being pregnant and having a toddler. But to be fair I was forewarned by the owner but there was limited availability in the area. The breakfast was a little trek but it certainly made up for it. Freshly made eggs and there were many options. It was a good value for the stay.

The good points: The room and bathroom was OK, breakfast itself was OK. Now the bits you should listen to carefully: The rooms are up 176 stairs, without a lift. On arrival they pick you up in a taxi and take you up a long winding back road to the top of the stack of tiered apartment blocks. It is 1.5 kms down this road (avoiding the stairs) to the front! It took us 30 minutes to walk to breakfast some 2.5 kms away in the old town in another of her properties. I can not recommend this B&B at all. We did not get to meet the hostess 'Cherry', she was always at one of her other sets of rental properties.

Room in town at breakfast locationPosted Jun 5, 2013 on Hotels.com
This is not a "hotel" but an accumluation of rooms owned by one person with a central place to eat breakfast in town. We were taken to our room by cab (no way to get your suitcase up approx 150 steps). The room was very shabby and older, no view, and a 15 minute walk from town which is where the breakfast was served. The disappointment on our face motivated the employee to call the owner and a room in town "opened up". Fortunately, it was convenient as a well as newly remodeled. I wouldn't stay again.

Close to train stationPosted May 28, 2013 on Hotels.com
Very quaint, a bit of a walk for breakfast but well worth it. Breakfast was wonderful, outside terrace with lots of atmosphere. Hostess made us feel very welcome. Lots of stairs when walking from town the short way, but a free taxi was provided from train to hotel and no steps to climb when dropped off at the upper driveway.

Great Hotel and friendly staffPosted May 25, 2013 on Hotels.com
We had a great time in Monterosso and a lot of that was thanks to how nice Cherry (the owner) was and the way were treated at the hotel. It was well run and we're given a lot of hints as to nice places to eat and things to do. She was even kind enough to drive out to meet us with her daughter after we had a problem getting back into our rooms and arranged for us to eat at a friends restaurant just before it opened up for the evening. The only issue we found with the hotel was the distance and the steps between the rooms on the hillside and the breakfast area, a walk of about 15-20 minutes. Its no barrier if you intend to leave the hotel for the day after you leave for breakfast but if you are an older visitor or want to return to your room frequently I'd imagine you've have some problems. However there are some rooms in the lower town (Old Monterosso) that you can arrange to stay in if you do think you'd have problems
