Within 2 minutes (if that) walking distance of the train station in Vernazza you probably couldn't find a hotel better location. The rooms are basic but reasonable considering how expensive this part of Italy is. Shops, restaurants and bars are all nearby with little walking required. The beds were comfortable and everything very clean. If you're staying here we recommend...

We stayed in Pensione Sorriso for 2 nights. The hosts were very kind and helpful, and made everything easy for us. The only complaints we have are the expensive breakfast that we didn't take (10€ each!), and the fact that we didn't have the soap and shampoo refilled (which was quite annoying since it's the sea side and you practically...

The convenient location, pleasant room and superb staff made our time at Pensione Sorriso an enjoyable one. Literally a stones throw from the train station. Verbally itself was a lovely, quiet place to stay in Cinque Terre. We didn't actually sample the food or drink from the restaurant so unable to comment on that. Didn't seem to be a kitchen...

Booked for two nights, stayed for one!!! It was awful. The walls were paper thin, no creature comforts and drunks in the corridors the noise on the streets below just echoed round our room. Vernazza was packed with thousands of holiday makers and at night they yelled and carried on making it impossible to sleep. The final straw was when...

I was there with my wife for 3 nights. A small room with the basic facilities, not bad really and good air conditioned for the hard summer. You must speak Italian if you want to talk with the lady who runs the place, Graziella. She is not the friendliest person so does not make feel confidence the customers, mainly she...

We really enjoyed our stay at Pensione Sorriso in Vernazza. The room was clean and nice, and our window was heading away from the railway so as long as we kept our windows closed by night, we weren't bothered by the train at all. The hosts were very welcoming, and the breakfast was beautifully served. The location is also perfect,...

The hostel is well located a few steps from the train station and close to the main street. We had a very warm welcome. The room was spacious, clean, neat, and tidy. Breakfast was delicious. It is a very quiet hostel, we spent 3 nights it was perfect. Thank you

Walking up from the sea and rail station, the hotel fits nicely in a spot for a peaceful sleep. The proprietor was very friendly, the rooms small, the bathroom smaller, no a/c, but comfy beds. Close to the Cinque Terre trail and a simple walk to the sea, makes this spot perfect for staying in Vernazza.

This is my first one-star rating in all the years I've been on TripAdvisor. The day I was supposed to arrive there were train strikes in Italy. After boarding multiple Trenitalia trains all day long and having them delayed and then finally cancelled, I had no way to arrive in Vernazza. I called the staff to explain the situation, as...
