More about Hotel Pasquale
Hotel Pasquale - an excellent time!
We just returned from a 2 night stay in Hotel Pasquale Monterosso al Mare and can't stop talking about how lovely the staff was, the beautiful views and the great breakfasts. While the bathroom was tiny, it was not an issue and the kindness of the staff and beauty of the place were primary. We even had a bonus - a combo was playing in the piazza one night (everything from fox trots and polkas to Elvis) and the entire village came out to dance in the street. We opened the shutters to our room and listened to the music and the waves.
A heavenly hotel in a heavenly place
Everything about this hotel is great. The location is right on the beach. People are very friendly. Rooms are clean. We will never forget our stay at Hotel Pasquale.
Very hospitable hotel
We stayed 5 nights at the Hotel Pasquale in Monterosso. Our room had a lovely view over the sea, and was cleaned impeccably each day. The managers treated us as important guests and were very caring. We frequently enjoyed drinks out front and watched the crowds walk by. Breakfast was good. The noise of the trains did pervade at times, but they are close by wherever you may be in this delightful, historic town. Overall we were extremely happy with our stay.
Great Place by the Sea
We arrived at the Hotel Pasquale after driving down from Genova with friends. We arrived late and expected some complications. Instead, we were welcomed with open arms and great service. Our room was small, but comfortable, with a view to die for. The hotel is right out of an Agatha Christie mystery, and was part of the joy of our stay in Cinque Terre. The five towns are very small and have not changed in sixty to a hundred years. Hotel Pasquale fits right in with ambiance and culture. The walks between the towns are spectacular, but, with exception of the “Lover’s Walk”, are not for the faint of heart. For those who have no sense of adventure and are tightly bound to creature comforts, the Cinque Terre may not be for you. For everyone else, it is an experience well beyond description, and, by all means, Hotel Pasquale is one of the attractions.
have just returned from monetrosso, spent ten days at the hotel pasquale with my boyfriend and we were very sad to leave. we would both like to highly recommend this to anyone who appreciates the simple things in life. anyone who enjoys stepping away from it all, for a moment in time.
you must try the prawn ravioli at ciak restaurant in the old town and seafood linguini at belvedere restaurant, also in the old town - heaven on a plate. we ate and ate and ate... highly recommend!!!.
please so be careful when a menu states 'min. 2'. even if you order this one dish to share, you will be charged for two (this happened to us).
all in all, a magic stay. not one word of fault re hotel pasquale. felt like home, would love to return - if only in our dreams.
Awesome in Cinque Terre
The Hotel Pasquale is a diamond in the Cinque Terrre. Located in Monterosso, the best of the 5 towns, Hotel Pasquale is clean and neat with attentive staff. Rooms are spacious and have great sea views. We just visited Oct. 23-25, 2005 and wished we would have booked for longer. Our rate included a wonderful breakfast in Pasquale’s lovely dining room which faces the sea. Emanuela, Mark and the rest of the staff could not do enough to please us. The hotel is centrally located in the old section of Monterroso, with many great sites and restaurants a quick walk away. The hiking from Monterosso to the other towns is spectacular! Check out their web site and see for yourself at pasini.
A Beautiful Dream
A waterfront paradise the Hotel Pasquale puts you in the heart of the Cinque Terre. Located in Monterosso just a short walk from the train station, you will be amazed by the beauty of the view from your room (all rooms face the sea). Although it is located on the active beachfront your room will be clean, air conditioned, and quiet. Great resturants Ciak and Mikey (Serve some of the best food I have ever eaten anywhere, when at Mickey's (reservations recomended) try the "sardines in lemon sauce", and at Ciak don't miss the Scampi.) are located within walking distance of the hotel ask Marko, your host for directions.
The breakfast at the hotel is wonderful. It includes fresh espresso or cappicino or coffee whichever you desire. Also included is a crusant, an array of fresh fruits, yogerts and cereals. You will find it to be a great starter to a day of exploration. You can catch the boat to the other towns jusy yards from the front door. Before you go on the boat, don't forget to buy a full day pass card for trains, boats, and trails, it is the best deal and you will use all of it in one day.
If you are a hiker like my wife and I you can take the boat to the southern most city of Riomaggiore and walk the mountain paths back. Bring a bathing suit you will want to swim in the many natural bays you come across on the way. When you get tired stop for lunch in one of the towns. Later as the day passes to evening, just hop back on the boat or take the train home to your cool room to get ready for a great night out. Sit in front of the hotel on the patio and people watch. Have a glass of wine with other gests tell stories and relax before dinner.
The worst I can say about the Hotel Pasquale is that we could not stay long enough. This lovers paradise is booked up quickly, make your resorvations well in advance if you want to spend more than two nights. We where sad to leave and are already thinking about a return trip. The hotel staff are more then happy to please, many speak english, much to my relief. They work hard on every aspect of appearence from making sure the windows are spotless to cleaning the rooms promptly. At 135 Euro a night including breakfast it is a great deal.
If you are still not sure about where to stay trust me this is the place for you. If you have one romantic bone in your body stay her for a night and remember it for a lifetime.
Nice Hotel, great location
We stayed here for 5 nights in June. The hotel staff was very friendly and we enjoyed the fact that the hotel is located directly across the street from the beach. We had too much luggage, so we were grateful that the hotel was located right at the bottom of the hill so that we didn't have to walk as far from the train station. The rooms are basic and yes, the bathrooms are small, but we didn't mind because housekeeping did a great job keeping our room neat and tidy. (and with two teenage girls - that is no small feat!) We spent most of the time at the beach, so it was a great location from our point of view. Our only complaint was that we received quite a few mosquito bites while sleeping, but that was because we didn't shut the bathroom window at night. I wish they would have mentioned it when we checked in. Small price to pay for a relaxing and charming stay on the Italian Riviera!
Great Town-Great Hotel!
This hotel added to the enjoyment we found in Monterosso. Rooms were excellent, price was right and service was very good. This is family owned and operated. I would recommend a room above the first floor. We had Room #1. This gave us a view of city and sea, but there is a pathway that runs right in front of the window, thus it is difficult to enjoy the view without losing privacy. Don't let the presence of the train tracks worry you about losing sleep. With the windows closed and air conditioning on, the noise level (for us) was not a factor. We were served an excellent breakfast. I would advise the best time of the week to visit would be Sunday (afternoon) through about Thursday. The weekends are packed and noisy. We had visited several major cities, so our Sunday through Wednesday stay was very much what we needed at the time. This is the best town in the Cinque Terra.
great staff great hotel
Ideal location, perfect view of beach ocean and coastline In the old section with all the local charm you could imagine The high point of our visit, enhanced by Emanuela who was lovely and helpful...great advice on places to eat and how to get around. Right on the square,with enough activity to be interesting but quieted down for good night's sleep Exactly what we needed
Cinque Terre - Split stay between towns?
Another question -
We will be in the Qinque Terre for 3 nights. So far we have 2 nights booked at the Hotel Pasquale in Monterosso. Should we add a 3rd night at the same hotel, or spend it in another town. (We're thinking Vernazza).
RE: RE: Cinque Terre - Split stay between towns?
Hi - I'm brand new here and unsure where to ask this: I am 62 years old. My daughter and I are leaving for Italy in 10 days. While in Florence we want to make a day trip to Cinque Terre. My hesitation is that I am partially handicapped and cannot usually walk more than a city block before needing to sit down, sometimes not quite that far. Can you tell me if any of the five towns have the railroad station close enough to a cafe that I will have no problem getting off the train and to a comfortable place to sit and enjoy the magnificent view and atmosphere.
Thanks for any help you can provide -
