Travel Blogs from Monterosso
Friday 30 May 2014 – Good news was that dinner last night was very enjoyable at a family operated restaurant up the hill from our hotel. Even better news was that we returned to our hotel taking a different route and passed by a Laundromat that was open and just waiting to be used. Karen was very excited; Malcolm was a little confused about …
Finally a sleep in!! After yesterday's walk across the Cinque Terra everyone was a little tuckered, except for Kate who decided to go for a 50 minute run.
Today was planned to be nothing more than lying on the beach, 'Rancho Relaxo' style.
At 9am we headed to the section of umbrellas that appealed to us the most, which of course are all …
Up early to met the girls for brekky at 7.30 to prep for our coastal trail walk.
The trails run between the 5 villages, and are both gruelling and spectacular, but due to land slips and maintenance only the first two legs between Monterosso and Vernazza, and then on to Corniglia were open, which was disappointing.
The first leg to Vernazza …
Leisurely start to the day, as Kate, Maddy & Sal just wanted to be lazy and have a late breakfast........NOT! Meet at 7.30 for a run thru the streets of Monterosso in the humidity and the rain. Yep, it started to rain the moment we headed off. Now normally Rachael and I run for 30-40 minutes then hit the showers, do you reckon that's what …
Actually had to set the alarm for 8am this morning after our rocking night at Sigur Ros.
Grabbed the bikes for a quick ride in to town to grab a coffee and a couple of last minute purchases, then back to the apartment, pack and head to the train station.
Fortunately we only to catch 2 trains to get from Lucca to Monterosso in the Cinque …

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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
