Hotel Punta Mesco
Travel Blogs from Monterosso
We have our first free day, all day!! Weather is gorgeous, sunny, and warm. We have a great breakfast at the hotel: ham, yogurt, a chocolate croissant, coffee and juice.
In lieu of hiking the Cinque Terre, Anthony and I called it a day right away and rented 2 beach chairs and an umbrella just down the street from our hotel on the water. …
Another beautiful day… again! How lucky are we? Breakfast was disappointing again. We were told that they would start serving at 7:15am, so Anthony and I waited in our room until that time. When we came out, however, we learned that they brought it out early at around 6:30am, and there was practically nothing left! I had yogurt and bad coffee …
Bon giorno, Aaron here.
On Thursday we traveled from Rome to the Cinque Terre, which is a collection of five small coastal cities right on the Mediterranean Sea. Again, we lucked out with beautiful weather and we enjoyed strolling through the town of Monterosso after dark as well as having one of the better dinners we have had this entire …
Excellent breakfasts at the hotel to be greated by the rain and told that only the "Lovers way"
walk was open. So a mixture of walking and trains were the order of the day. Train to Vernazza, train to Riomaggiore, walked to Manarola ( Lovers way) then train to Corniglia for a failed geocache and then train back to Monterosso. The …
Leaving France is a dramatic event. A tunnel underneath Mt Blanc, leads straight to Italy. We
left in fog and clouds and through the other side we came out to sunshine and dramatic mountains - wonderful. We have never been through so many tunnels in one trip - every hill had to be gone through rather than around. It is freeway …

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Punta Mesco Monterosso
We spent three nights at this lovely hotel. It is conveniently located, very clean, nice size shower and bathroom, face basin large enough to wash and rinse laundry (we had a terrace outside to hang the laundry) and the best breakfast that we had. Breakfast consists of fruit, meat, yogurt, cereal, cheese, panetone bread, juices and cappucino, latte or espresso. You receive a 5% discount if you pay cash. The staff will make restaurant reservations for you. We experienced a torrential downpour one morning and there are umbrellas available for the guests to use at the front entrance. I would definitely stay here again.
Wonderful experience at the Punta Mesco!
The Hotel Punta Mesco was a wonderful experience. The location is convenient (albeit not on the beach)...only a 5 minute walk from the train station. The breakfast was nice - a bit more than we experienced elsewhere in Italy. We stayed in one of the apartments and had tons of room for only two people. Plenty of room to lay out luggage, etc... The bathroom was one of the nicest I've ever encountered in Europe. Beautiful tile; a shower you could actually move around in; hot water; great pressure; nice lighting. We couldn't have asked for anything more! We stayed five nights and enjoyed every minute of it!
Lovely clean rooms, within walking distance of the beach and the train station ( very manageable with luggage). Although close to the train the rooms were very quiet, the breakfast was good and the hotel management was very hospitable.
Nice Stay in Monterosso
We stayed at Punta Mesco for two nights in Sept, 04. Hotel was easy to find with free parking. Room was mid size, bed was fine, bath was okay. The first night some loud noisey unrespectfull guests came in around 1:00 and woke everyone up! Other quests were yelling "Quiet!". No clerk on duty at night, I would check to see if there is a contact at night in case of a problem like we had. We were tired so we got back to sleep. The next morning other quests were complaining. The noisey group was not there the next night and everything was quiet. Staff was nice, professional and helpfull. Breakfast was great. Nice reasonable priced place to stay in new section of town within walking distance of everything.
We stayed in Hotel Punta Mesco for 5 night. We have to say that it was more than we expected. We had a double room with a patio off the back.
The room was fairly big with a nice big bed and a very modern bathroom. The whole hotel was spotless. The staff spoke english and were very helpful. They even have a couple of bikes that you can borrow for the day. Just a couple blocks from the beach and the main strip. Close to the train station, and down the street from a very lovely restaurant "Mikys" . You have to try it!! Resverations a must.
Loved the Punta Mesco
We stayed at the Punta Mesco for two nights in Sept. Maybe it was just how much we loved the Cinque Terre, but we thought this little hotel was wonderful. The rooms were clean and modern, the breakfast was delicious, and the staff was so nice. We loved the location near the beach and Miky restaurant (you must try it!). We didn't want to leave the Cinque Terre!
We stayed at Punta Mesco for four nights toward the end of July. The staff were very pleasant, helpful and fluent in English.
Great hotel in the best of the 5 towns
This hotel is the perfect place to stay in Cinqueterra for those looking for a good hotel is a better location. Right near the beach and some restaurants but still a five minute walk to the center of town, it's a perfect quiet location while still being near anything that you could possibly need. The quaint decor and helpful staff perfectly compliment the most beautiful location of Monterosso. Enjoy!
We loved Monterosso and Cinque Terre. It was our such a nice change of pace after visiting Florence! If you like to relax by the ocean, bathe in the sunshine, get drenched in the vibrant warm colors of the Italian Riviera, browse neat local shops, eat fresh delicious seafood pasta, Cinque Terre is for you! All that aside, our room at the Hotel Punta Mesco was clean, but small and a bit suffocating because there was no window. There was a door leading out to the tiny terrace, but the view was a high brick wall. Needless to say, we didn't stay in the room much. We loved the staff though! The young gentlemen working there during breakfast were cheerful, friendly, and accommodating. They happily posed for photos with guests (Americans of course!) and gave us everything we asked for with a smile (very unusual in Italy)! One young man confessed that he's been in Monterosso all his life (20-something years) and would never want to leave! To summarize our experience there: great town, average hotel, but the outstanding staff made up for the dreariness of our small, windowless, viewless room!
This place is great
My wife and I stopped here for 3 nights during our recent trip throughout northern Italy. It was a welcome change from the business of Rome, Florence and Venice. We could relax on the beach (it's tiny, but it's a beach), hike the trails, and just sit with a bottle of wine and look out into the sea.
It was more touristy than we expected, but that didn't damper anything. We had a great time.
We stayed at the Hotel Punta Mesco, which is a terrific hotel. The rooms are large, new and clean. Definately recommended if your travelling to Cinque Terre.
