Wonderful Hosts at Locanda Il Maestrale - Giovanni & Stefania were friendly and responsive. Loved staying in ‘Old Town’! Easy 10 minute walk from the train station. Perfect location for exploring Cinque Terre & the Riviera Towns. Close to the beaches - 5 min walk. (Hosts provided a beach bag with beach towels). Lots of restaurants and shops right outside your door. Stayed in the Manarola room. Very clean with comfortable king size bed. Great shower with lots of hot water and excellent water pressure. Fridge stocked with water - no charge (tap water is drinkable in Italy but nice to have the bottles for day trips). Juice/beer also stocked in fridge with prices as per menu. Daily maid service included clean towels as needed. (Thanks Connie)! Fabulous rooftop terrace where we had breakfast every morning (with fresh squeezed orange juice)! Stefania & Giovanni also put out complimentary daily afternoon fruit, snacks & coffee/tea. We had access to the roof top terrace at any time and enjoyed our evenings up there with a bottle of wine. Giovanni helped us get the Cinque Terre train & trekking pass ($16 euro per person for one day) for unlimited train rides & trekking. The cars also gets you free access to the toilets at the train stations. We did the hike from Monterosso Al Mar to Vernazza. Spectacular views during this 1 hr 15 min walk. We did this on a Saturday, it was busy on the trails and insanely busy on the trains. Recommend getting an early start to avoid the crush of tourists. Loved visiting all the towns of Cinque Terre. Corniglia is up higher from the ocean. The weather was very hot so we took the free shuttle immediately after you get off the train (or alternatively you can take the steep 25 minute walk up to the town). We did a beautiful late afternoon sunset hike to the top of the hill in Monterosso and saw the church of San Francesco. Castle ruins and a cemetery. The views were incredible.
The property is family owned but don’t let that bother you, cause wow they really know how to look after guests.
The location, service and breakfast were terrific
It was a little expensive for a one night stay
Location was great within the old town. Staff was wonderful. Very nice and helpful. The room was beautiful. Breakfast was good. Decent variety. Eggs were available in addition to the standard fare of breads, meats, fruits and yogurt, etc. great cappuccinos! (Capuccini)
Mattress on the bed was a bit uncomfortable. Maybe it just needs an extra pad for comfort. There was a bit of building noise but nothing that kept us awake.
Excellent staff, great location.
With a stay at Locanda Il Maestrale in Monterosso al Mare (Borgo Antico), you'll be within a 5-minute walk of Monterosso Beach and Cinque Terre Marine Protected Area. Featured amenities include a computer station, luggage storage, and coffee/tea in a common area.
