Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Margherita Monterosso
Great Hotel and stayed there by accident
We stayed at the Hotel Margherita for 4 nights and it was an excellent stay. The rooms were decent sized and very clean. Breakfast was above average for Italy and the owner Renato was very helpful with restaurant suggestions and information. The hotel is modern but not too modern with a good feel to the rooms and lobby area.
We were originally booked at Villa Accini but were glad to have changed to Hotel Margerita. The only downside is the marble floors are somewhat noisy but only if you have some loud neighbors.
I would definitely stay at Hotel Margherita again.
Loved this hotel
This hotel exceeded our expectations. We had been traveling in Italy for 3 weeks and this was such a pleasant surprise. There were not many reviews at the time so we were not too sure what to expect. We had a suite for 3 and it was perfect. The bathroom was beautiful, all greyish taupy tiles with sparkling white fixtures and a large shower and beautiful thick towels. Also loved the breakfast and we appreciated the elevator. We also thought the receptionist was very sweet and helpful.
Beautiful, clean and brand new
I love this hotel! It is brand new and located right on the main street of Old Town, Monterosso. This was great for me, as I could easily get lost walking through the small, endless, windy side streets.
The couple who owns the hotel are very friendly and speak English well. They were quite accomodating and made my stay enjoyable. I enjoyed my time here so much I extended my stay an additional night, and they had no problem booking me for an additional night on short notice.
Everything is new and clean and the rooms are beautiful.
I enjoyed the classy, wooden bar in the main atrium, open only for guests of the hotel. Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a relaxing and beautiful vacation in this charming hotel.
The real thing
I learned about this hotel via the internet. I was concerned that it may not be as good as it sounded. Boy, was I wrong. This place is the real deal! We traveled in Europe for 3 weeks in September 2006 and this was the best hotel we stayed in. The positive reviews are true. Hotel Margherita is new and very nice. It is rated a 3 star but deserves a 4 star rating in my opinion. I will definately stay there again and recommend it highly.
Very good option!
A good and clean hotel.
Good location, and good management.
Very nice and clean rooms.
Overall -an excellent choice, and I would defiantely stay at this hotel if I am going back to QT.
You can't go wrong if you stay in this beautiful hotel. I spent 4 days in the Hotel Margherita, in Monterosso, Cinque Terre and I had a great time. The owner, Renato, does everything to make your stay just perfect. He can tell you where to have a delicious meal, the best gelato in town and what to see in the area. A unforgettable trip. A must.
Amazing Hotel Accommodations and Service
Hotel Margherita is like finding a diamond in the rough. Cinque Terre is a beautiful place and this hotel made it even better! My boyfriend and I stayed here during our recent trip to Monterosso(Cinque Terre) and had a wonderful experience. The new hotel is in an excellent location, is extremely clean, had superb accommodations and a wonderful staff. I highly recommend it and can't say enough about this place. We will definitely be returning next year.
If you go, here are my recommendations:
Try to spend at least three days there
Stay at Hotel Margherita (as mentioned above)
Eat at Miky's (it's worth the wait)
Eat at the restaurant that's located on top of the hill (that has a shuttle to take you there - i can't remember the name but Rinato at Hotel Margherita knows....)
Great Modern and Sleek Hotel
A very spacious and brand new hotel, with modern decor. We stayed in a triple room for $160 Euros and it was huge, with a king bed and an extra queen bed in an alcove area. Extra large bathroom. Staff was very friendly. Also conveniently located close to the parking garage, which is a plus if you have a lot of luggage like we did.
Only downside is that our room did not have an ocean view, even though we had a nice garden view. Not sure if other rooms in the hotel have an ocean view. We forgot to ask.
If you love seafood, try the Anfora specialty dish at the Belvedere restaurant located underneath the train tracks. It's basically the very best fresh seafood (menu said fish, but dish included a whole lobster, mussels, squid, gigantic prawns and actually not much fish) cooked in a light stew in an earthenware pot called an anfora. Think bouillabaisse on steroids. Enough to fill up three to four hungry people at only $43 Euros for the entire dish.
Un excellent hôtel, tout neuf
Après avoir consulté les opinions des membres de Tripadvisor sur les hôtels de Monterosso, et ayant trouvé nos premiers choix complets, nous sommes tombés sur l'unique critique de l'hôtel Margherita, une critique dithyrambique par un déçu du 4 * Porto Roca. Malgré les photos peu flatteuses (à mon avis) trouvées sur le site de l'hôtel, nous avons réservé une grande chambre à 150 euros pour 4 nuits, et nous n'avons eu qu'à nous en féliciter. Tout était bien, le volume, le lit King Size, le service. La chambre comportait un balcon et 2 fenêtres, et la salle de bains (une salle de douche car c'est ce que nous préférons) une fenêtre. L'hôtel a ouvert il y a peu et tout est en parfait état. Sa situation est au "centre historique", il n'y a pas de vue mer, mais on est près de nombreux restaurants et de l'ambiance agréable du village. Le petit déjeuner buffet est varié et excellent, même les croissants sont feuilletés à la française, ce qui est rarissime en Italie. Bref nous le recommandons sans réserve.
Cela dit, 4 nuits à Monterosso, c'est un peu beaucoup. Les Cinque Terre se visitent en une journée. Le 2ème jour on peut faire la croisière à Porto Venere. Nous avons meublé la 3ème par un mini-voyage à Sta Margherita Ligure et Portofino. 2 jours suffisent. Dernier conseil: y aller en train et pas en voiture.
Great New 3 Star in Cinque Terre (Monterosso)
We initially booked the 4 star Porto Roco in Monterosso but b/c the only thing 4 star about the hotel was the view, we checked out after 1 night. Then we were lucky enough to find Hotel Margherita (72 via Roma) where we stayed 8 nights! The hotel just opened 2 weeks ago and is owned by a lovely couple from Monterosso. Overall, the hotel far exceeded our high expectations. Location: Perfect. A two minute walk from everything (Old Town) including all the restaurants & beach. Rooms: We stayed in two types of rooms: the suite for 150 euros & a standard room for 130. Both were great. As the hotel is brand new, everything is in perfect shape. We particularly enjoyed the proper king-size beds, awesome AC, reasonable mini bar, great towels, flat screen tv, balcony /terrace, & proper bathrooms with real showers. The rooms are very thoughtfully designed including individual built-in reading lamps on each side of the bed. The windows and balcony/terrace doors are all double paned so the outside noise stays there. Public Space: The lobby is very contemporary, comfortable & welcoming with plenty of smartly-designed chairs and sofas to hang out on, read, chat etc. Ceilings are high & the space wide open. There is also a lovely coffee/wine bar in the lobby where we had a glass of wine each night before bed (not a social scene, but a nice marble bar near the chairs/sofa for 3-4 people to sit). Free & excellent breakfast (included) is served every morning including: granola, parma ham, fresh fruit, bread, tarts, croissants, yogurt, juice/coffee, hard boiled eggs etc. Service: We could not have asked for more - even from a 4 star hotel. The owners and the staff go out of their way to help make your stay perfect in every way. They sent a taxi to the pharmacy for us to pick up medication, reserved tables for us at great restaurants (al pozzo was the best), & made us feel incredibly welcomed during our whole stay. After 8 days here, I can confidently say that you will not find nicer people people than those at the Hotel Margherita!

Set off early Tuesday morning for our train trip to Monterosso, really looking forward to getting there around lunch time as it looks like an amazing place, but our plans fell apart very quickly due to Regional strikes by train staff and trains had been cancelled. After much waiting in train stations, a bus and train ride we finally got to our …

The sky was threatening rain all day but luckily for us it waited until we were safely at Manarola. I would not like to be caught up the top when a storm hits - there is no shelter, and coming down is scary enough when its dry!
Manarola is my favourite town for the 5. I would recommend ...

Merano is primarily famous for its spa treatments. Apart from the ordinary stock standard treatments you can also border on the bizarre with one of the local specialities of the house, like a South Tyrolean sheep wool bath or a Hay bath. We would have loved to indulged, however we are still looking forward to a couple more months travelling and our budget is still stuck to us ...
... the tourist information offices around the country shut between 12 and 3pm so when you can't do anything else you can't even research things to do....it's bizzare! Most shops are open for three hours in the morning then reopen somewhere between 3 and 4.30pm until 6 - 7pm. Oh and have we mentioned before, we don't know where all the children are.....there's always a smattering of them and we did get to see school pick up time in Mandello (very tricky on tiny ...
