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.

... scape. We followed the lead of our seatmate and stood outside the cubby to watch the Mediterranean coast go by. I mentioned to MIchael that it looked like Laguna Beach, which prompted a young girl next to us to ask where we were from. She was from Irvine CA playing softball for Torino. She's been here for a season or two, was given an apartment and car by the team, and her team one a large championship recently. She told us all the places she's travelled, and was with ...

... who was the owner of the apartment we were renting and he took us up many stairs through little alleyways to our doorstep. Our apartment was three stories and we had a view of the city from the balcony on the top floor. We went to a little restaurant to grab some breakfast and then took a train to the beach. The water was so blue and crystal clear once you swam out past the shore. We laid out all day on the beach ...

The next town Corniglia cannot be completely walked, as part of it is closed due to landslides. They suggest you catch the train and then a bus. We caught the train but then walked up this steep hill as there wasn’t a bus in sight. The boys sampled some wild blackberries on the way up. This town is very high up, and can’t be accessed by the ferry. It is on a rocky promontory ...
