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.

... the same. Monica tells us that yesterday's top temperature of 39° was still 33° when we were walking in the evening. No wonder we are sapped and I have heat rash down my legs!!! Today is cooler she says... 37°C! It's not yet that hot as we walk back to Roma Termini station. On the concourse, befuddled tourists mix with locals on a mission, gorgeous young things with the longest of legs in ...
... brick path was a bit cooler due to the vegetation.
Riomaggiore had big, beautiful beaches, with deep turquoise water. After my hike, I took off my shoes and walked along the beach in the water. I thought the water would cool me off, but it was so warm! Much of the beach was washed gravel, but in the water, the sand, very coarse and grainy, sparkled unlike any beach I've ever seen. There was some kind of rock or mineral there that made the beach look ...
... We begin at Monterosso and make our way down the coast line. It is very beautiful.
Was the biggest and had the best beaches to swim at, main because it had a beach. It was refreshingly cold to swim in and really weird to stand in stones instead of sand. The water was a beautiful blue colour and the sand on the beach a grey-ish colour. There was lots of little markets and restaurants here. I loved the ...
... us a bit about the cliffs and villages we were passing, but others on the boat had just as much to share about which trails they had hiked and what they had enjoyed. We docked in Manarola where a restaurant was ready for us and we were served a meal completely of seafood. It consisted of many small tastes of lots of different things, some of which I am sure that many of us had not ever had before. It was delicious and fun...more wine was served and ...
... spiral staircase to the rooms. Imagine the changes the older man has seen in this small community - from grapes, winemaking, fishing, only contact by sea or super steep climb to the rough road; to tourism, National Park and World Heritage status, bus to the town, 10 trains and 5 ferries a day. Imagine living/working in the house your great grandfather lived and worked in! Crazy.
Listen very carefully to nice hotel managers ...
