La Poesia is a very cute place that is sort of expensive for what you get, though the price may have been competitive - I just don't know. We had a tiny room with a good-sized bathroom. The location is good and Nicoletta, the proprietor, is delightful. She symbolized the Monterosso experience for us - folksy, authentic, fun. Breakfast was... More

Nicoletta did everything to enjoy our stay. This B&B is high level and in a quiet street, close to the center. Rooms are confortable and when the weather is fine you can have your breakfast on a terrace.

This 4 room bed and breakfast is perfectly located a block or 2 from the restaurant center and beach in Monterossa. The breakfast is beyond belief and served in the quaint courtyard. The proprietess, Nicholetta, is as charming as the accommodations. She was born in the house and treats it as her her home and the guests as her personal... More

Nicoletta very accommodating, 15 min from train station, good location and close to the middle of town and restaurants. Shower small, room size small, typical B&B, no staff on premises after cleaning so need to advise arrival time, no English TV channels, mattress not real comfortable, amenities like soap n shampoo. Small TV. Good breakfast with omelette, WiFi limited. Nice... More

This property is like a haven in the madness of Monterosso. Arriving we were overwhelmed by the August crowds. The train station is chaotic and crowded. Nicoletta was our saviour! Arriving on her bicycle to meet us! The property has a lovely tranquil terrace. Rooms are small but adequate. Not luxurious but comfortable and practical. There is also a small... More

This is my third visit to Monterosso and I can say that I returned because of the beauty of the Cinque Terre villages, but the real reason is to stay with Nicoletta at La Poesia. Nicoletta is a true hostess, making myself and friends feel welcomed and comfortable. I traveled with a large group and Nicoletta went out of her... More

Nicolette the owner is so good at her job.

If you read other reviews you will notice that Nicoletta greets you at the train station and has a taxi waiting for you. It is by far the best service we experienced in Italy. She pays for the taxi too. The rooms are immaculate, on the small side but very duable with king size beds. The shower/bathroom is a nice... More

We stayed in the Giglio Rosso Suite while at La Poesia and it was delightful.

We arrived at Monterosso station and were met by Nicoletta. She had arranged a cab to take us to la Poesia. She cycled ahead. She was very friendly and gave us a charming welcome.
