We had the most lovely stay at Pensione Sorriso in September 2011. We were afforded very gracious hospitality at the front reception desk. We arrived without a reservation and were so fortunate to take what I think was the last room in Vernazza. Our room, which we now wonder about, had a lovely placement up some steps from the breakfast...

I stayed here one night in Vernazza and walked into there in the AM to book that night. My room was up alot of stairs, clean with a very clean shared bathroom. The shower is three feet off the floor on a wooden platform but the place was spotless, but this is not for the disabled or can't climb traveler....

We have stayed in hotels that are rated more stars than this hotel, so we were skeptical. However after seeing the rooms, and the facilities, we were extremely surprised that this hotel is not rated higher. The room and shared bathroom was extremely clean, the included breakfast was amazing, and the staff courteous! We will definitely stay there agin the...

This great message gives me the chance to explain why we are just 1 star (annex fontana vecchia) and 2 stars (main building and DIP.2 ,just in front of the main building). The main reason is that we don't offer all the rooms with private bathroom.13 rooms have private bathroom and 6 rooms (3 rooms in the main building and...

A hundred yards from train station in beautiful Vernazza. If you are lugging too much luggage this is perfect place to go to in Cinque Terra and Vernazza is the most charming of the five towns. Air cond available, free breakfast good (especially the cappucino), free wifi available if you ask. A bit pricey but worth the convenience.

We stayed at the Pensione Sorriso on a friend's recommendation and were pleased it was close to the train station.We opted for a room with a private bath at the top in the front. However, the noise from the playground across the street and the station precluded opening the balcony windows until after midnight. The bath was so tiny the...

The hotel is next to the train tracks, less than a minute perhaps. Trains run ALL NIGHT. This is the worst night sleep I got in all of Italy. The bed are very tiny and the rooms are cramped.

Overall a very quaint and charming pension in the lovely town of Vernazza. Not alot of options for pensions here, but Sorriso was good value. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were small and the bathroom even smaller, but to be expected. Breakfast was great and the internet is free and lightning fast. Overall an enjoyable experience,...
