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.
Breakfast lovely and the breakfast room & staff charming.
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.

... room rate. It has so many options, not so much hot stuff ( bacon, eggs and beans) but lots of fruits, pastries, pancakes, breads, cheeses, cold cuts, cereals, yoghurts, mini donuts even (yip just had to try one). My personal favourites were rockmelon (I ate plates of this - very healthy) pancakes, pancakes and more pancakes, then cakes and cuppa tea. Seems weird to have cakes and slices for breakfast but I just figure it's breakfast and morning tea in one ...
... my face. We bought a packed of chips and came back to the room. The chips are no more, but we are also showered and a bit more comfortable now. It wasn't a very hot day - just 24° - but the terrain on this walk is up and down the whole way. It is not that tough of a walk, but it's no walk in the park either. All up we would have walked for a good five hours. We are hep joking a drink of that cheap Baileys substitute we bought duty free now in the room. ...
We got off at Manarola and looked around again - great views and great respect for those living their. Both Riomaggiore and Manarola have virtually no flat space so children who live there can't play footy, ride bikes or scooters, play sports etc etc. What a different way of life.
Next back on the train and got off again at Vernazza. Apparently this is the most well known town on Cinque Terre. It was sooooo busy with ...
... to the harbour - the water was pretty choppy, so decided to do the train again instead! On arrival at Riomagorie, we headed to the harbour as we'd been too tired yesterday. This harbour was smaller than the one at Vernazza, but charming just the same! We managed to take some photos just before the first boat arrived with more tourists! Next thing on our list was to walk the Amore' track! After climbing 20 steps we realised that this path was still closed due to the ...
... before heading to the cape of the town for a view. Took the train to Monterosso. Walked around a little there. Had a gelato by the beach. The old town didn't look nice so we stuck to the cape with St Fracis's statue before training south to Riomaggiore, southernmost of the five. A few photos from up high by the old fort before the final train of the day back to Manarola. Photos of the sunset. Had the sea bass tagliatelle from the same ...
