Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Villa Accini Monterosso
We stayed at the Hotel Villa Accini for 4 nights and had a wonderful time. The rooms are large and clean, and the location is great. Breakfast was fantastic - especially out on the terrace. The staff were friendly and recommended some great restaurants - Maxi (at the bottom of the drive) and Il Pirata. We hope to return to the Cinque Terre and Hotel Villa Accini will be top of our list!
Highlight of our trip
We stayed for three nights at this wonderful hotel. The rooms were spotless and the washrooms were large. The staff was very helpful and considerate. We arrived at 11:45 PM and they stayed open until we found a place to eat supper, as we had been on the train all day.
The breakfasts were excellent. It was like staying at our grandparent's house. We would definitely stay again. Monterosso is a beautiful town and we think the best of the five towns.
This is a great hotel, and we'd definitely stay here again. The gardens are beautiful! Breakfast was my favorite part of the day, in the beautiful breakfast room with a vase of fresh-cut roses from the garden on each table.
Accini is excellent!
Booking easy and efficient.
Distance from railway station very convenient.
Very friendly staff.

Bedroom spacious with excellent bathroom facilities.
Everything very clean, very friendly, very efficient.

We stayed at Hotel Villa Accini for two nights in September, 2004. We really loved the hotel because of the fantastic location, clean bathroom, adequate room size, nice breakfast, parking included and very nice and friendly service. The price was very reasonable too. Also, no noise from the train disturbed our sleep.
By the way, if you're going to do the 5 town hike, take the train to Riomaggiore in the morning (around 10 am) and hike back to Monterosso al Mare. In this direction, you can warm up, as the trail is easy the first hour. The last two segments are challenging but definitely not dangerous as I've read somewhere. It's a great hike! Take water (you can buy more on the way) and food for lunch unless you want to eat in one of the restaurants. Take lots of pics & enjoy!
Nice stay, would stay again.
Room was spacious and fine. Water pressure was good in shower (no bath). Location was great, very easy to get to from the train unlike many other nightmare options with lots of steps or long walks. Breakfast was good, great espresso but no eggs. Staff very friendly and we were fine despite speaking little italian (and they spoke just the minimum english). Definately a family-run hotel. Go to Je Pirata restaurant nearby and have their lasagne primo course. Amazing!!
Stayed here Sept 24 & 25. This was quite the suprise. I expected a small home with little in the way of extras. However once we managed all our luggage up their driveway in the rain, we were to suprised to see they had an elevator! Rooms are pretty bare, not too many homey touches but it is very well kept. Rooms had a mini bar and bathroom tolietries. Customized windows that keep the noise out, which is nice since the train is close. A nice addition is that you can park here and not pay for the car lot. Breakfast could be improved.
The best place we stayed on our 4 week tour of Europe!
We discovered Cinque Terre along with many other American tourists and were charmed. We loved the five villages and believe we made the best choice staying in Monterosso. This village seemed to have the most restaurants and shops. Villa Accini was darling--an old Italian Villa on set on a hillside. The floors were marble and the bathrooms totally modern with all the amenities. Our breakfast was great and I fell in love with Cappucino here. They made me a decaf one every morning. We especially loved the terrace where I read the Bible every morninga and we had wine and appetizers in the evening before dinner. Villa Accini has its own parking which is a plus in Cinque Terre! We spent 160 E per night including breakfast and parking. English is not spoken very well here but we were able to communicate. Eat at the hotel on the old side of the village on top of the hill. I can't remember the name of it but the view was wonderful and it was fun to walk up to it. Prices were the same as in town and the food was delicious. Getting to Monterosso was an adventure as we took the long, windy road out of La Spezia. Stop in La Spezia and get good directions that will take you mostly highway unless you want the hour long, curvy, in one place a one-way road, experience.
Loved the Villa Accini
If you're looking for a place to stay in the Cinque Terre (highly recommended for any trip to Northern Italy), we would definitely recommend the Hotel Villa Accini (website www.hotelvillaaccini.it) in Monterosso. This 3 star hotel is located just 100m from the beach, and is an easy 150m walk from the railways station. The rooms are clean, well maintained and very comfortable and the staff are friendly and helpful.
Nice attractive well run hotel
We had a nice stay at Villa Accini. The hotel is located about one block up from the beach in the new section of Monterosso. The staff was polite and helpful. The hotel was clean and well maintained. Reservations can be made over the internet.

Today we booked a day trip out of Cinque Terre, the five lands or five towns. It was a tour of 13 people, mostly Americans but with a couple of Brits too. We had a bit of a mix up at the hotel as we'd asked for a taxi but they had misunderstood so we were the annoying couple that turn up with only 2 minutes to spare until the bus leaves. It's a 2 hour journey to the Mediterranean coast from Florence so we ...
... t able to visit my usual Panino shop. I probably could have exited the secure area and then re-entered, but my train would be departing soon so I didn’t want to take a chance on getting stuck outside due to a long queue or whatever. I managed to find some pre-made sandwiches at Hudson News, and bought a ham & cheese Panini and a bottle of ice tea for lunch, so that will have to do.
I found my train easily on Track 16 and when I boarded I ...
... of the route had tape stuck over it and "closed" written on it. The writing looked really old and worn. We ignored it because this being a major tourist hike, they would have said something about it being closed. We stopped for a brief orange juice break at a cafe on the cliffs between Vernazza and Corniglia and had pesto again for lunch. This time, on some pasta I had never heard of. Lovely. It was fairly hot by this stage ...
Today is our day off. So Daiva and I are headed to the cinque Terre coastline for the day. I had no intention of visiting here originally, but as the opportunity has presented itself and I recall several people at work speaking about it, I've decided to join Diva today. The images online do look amazing!
Cinque Terre, which means five lands, is combined of five small coastal villages, Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola ...
... looked to be in for a great night. We hopd off the train and called into a vine bar near the train station where we soon became attached to a group of women from Sweden who were here to celebrate one of the party's 60th birthday. They introduced me to Jeigermeister - mmmm....quite nice, and invited us to the actual party on October 14th. Offering free accommodation and meals. Pity we can't take them u.p on it. The earliest night of our trip. Home by 8.15pm and feeling very ...
