We surprised to find out our B&B has the same No. 57 as our own house back to shanghai.. :) a nice coincidence...
However I won't recommend this B&B.. (only Bed no breakfast as many B&B here). The lady landlord was very friendly though.. quite respectful and no intrude at all.. her place locates a little up on the hill, about 30 narrow steps to climb.. and then once enter the building... 3 more floors to climb.. it was a bit killing coz we were carrying 2 big suitcases.. She doesn't speak english well.. It wasn't very easy for us to communicate.. the price was not as what Manuel's nephew said to us, 60euros for double the same as their guesthouse.. but only a little more was 65 euros per night.. the lady didn't bother to give us back the change of our 200 note paid for 3 nights stay.. but the flat itself was spotless and spacious... our bed room overlooking the hush yard with lemon trees on the hillside.. she offered us to use the kitchen and all the tableware.. it was very nice of her.. we did one night dining at home with some fresh local products and limocelo.. :D one thing bothers me a little bit was the shower place.. I have looong hair so I always hate electrical water heating.. no shower curtain above the bath-tub makes the water spilled all over the washroom during my shower.. the shower head was hand-hold style, no where to hang on the wall... afterall, the shower was like a battle for me..
there was a small super market at the corner right downstair of our B&B.. only opened a few hours each day.. it's a nice to place to get some fresh local products for a picnic or casa dining ..
I found out about this apartment on line and was happy to hear that it's vacant during the time we were going to spend in Monterosso al Mare.
The apartment is a small studio (15sm) with a kitchenette and a very small bathroom with a shower.
It's located in the historic part of the town, 5 min walking distance to the pier, restaurants and a train station.
The apartment is located in an old building on the second floor (the third American floor) with no elevator. All the equipment is new, the kitchen and bathroom are clean and very nice.
It's a perfect accommodation for a young couple who doesn't look for luxury, but a nice place in a good price.
We paid 60 Euro per night, all included: electricity, linen, towels
Very good location.
AC, TV, Fridge,
Quiet, facing the courtyard.
The kitchen is fully equipped.
The apartment is located just off the delightful old piazza in Monterosso al Mare.
It has a dining area, a well-equipped kitchen,a bathroom,a balcony and two bedrooms.
The apartment is ideal for a family.
It is close to the beach and to all the activities in the village!
Hotels in Monterosso are expensive, there's no getting around it, but Euro 135 ($162.00) for this place is overdoing it. The rooms and hotel in general are rather sterile and lack character, although they do have cable TV and AC. The bathrooms are TINY. Seriously, if you're over 5' 11" tall you'll have to sit sideways on the toilet. Pasquale also has the dubious honor of serving the worst breakfast we found in Italy. Maybe at about Euro 70-90, this might be a good deal, but you're better to save your money and stay in Vernazza.
All rooms do have a sea view and they give you your own set of keys to come and go with.
On our trips to the Cinque Terre, we have chosen to stay in Vernazza, as opposed to Monterosso - here are details of where we stayed.
Albergo Barbara is located on the town square overlooking the harbour. Our room had amazing views (see photo) and was clean and roomy, with shared bathroom.
There are several flights of stairs up to the hotel, but the friendly owners will help with your bags if necessary.
No breakfast, though plenty of cafes nearby.
Great views from most of the rooms, particularly rooms 7/8/9 which have amazing views of the harbour.
The smaller attic rooms 2/3/4 also have a view of the harbour through the small windows, and are a lot cheaper.
In peak season, most hotels in Monterosso are expensive and sold out. But almost everyone living there has a room to be rented. When you arrive, just ask to shop owners, taxi drivers, etc and you will likely find an accomodation at reasonable prices. If you're a girl, local guys will be more than happy to help you, then it's up to you ;-)
Locanda Il Maestrale is a 6 room inn located on Via Roma, the main road in Monterosso's old town. It has 3 doubles, 1 single and two suites. It offers breakfast on a spectacular terrace that arches over Via Roma. It has only been open 2 years, reconstucted from a sixth century palace. Rooms are fresh and offer air conditioning for those hot months. Wonderful place to stay!
Rooms are clean and furnishings new. Suites have frescoed ceilings. Each room has a/c, hair dryer, minibar, tv, private bath. Wonderful flowered terrace looking over the historic center.
Although camping is vietato or "Forbidden" on the beaches in Monterosso, that didn't stop us. We made a lovely little campsite under one of the restaurant decks and used beach chairs for cover from nosy beachcombers.
Can't get any cheaper than sleeping on the beach!
