Vernazza is a different kind of place and so is the Franca Maria Rooms. This is not a hotel - it is separate rooms in different places, so there is no room service or service desk. In fact, the owner, who is very nice, is hard to get a hold of because he is always busy. I had a room...

We were originally taken to a very small room(closet) about half way up the hill between the beach and the train station and at the end of a convoluted alleyway. We knew the town was laid out on a hillside but were not interested in lugging our suitcases and ourselves up so many small steps if we didn't have to....

This was the best place we stayed. Very charming and plenty of room for 5 of us. There was no air conditioning but it wasn't needed because the brick walls kept it cool. It was tucked in, just off the main street and just seconds from the harbor. You didn't have to climb up a hill to get here, either....

We booked the room Cessa Doia which looks out upon Piazza Marconi, you will be hard pressed to find a more beautiful location on the planet!

We rented their Cessa Doia room right on the main plaza for two nights. This room does have a great view, does not take a lot of effort to get to, can accommodate up to four guests (with a futon) and it is located right in the center of all the action. The WIFI service does not work unless you...

The room we stayed in was in a great location and the bed was comfortable. That exhausts all the good things I have to say about it. The room was small (which we are used to having travelled extensively in Europe, especially Italy where we were in the middle of a 10 week trip to the country) and too pricey...

This was such a great room and looked right onto the square. It was crazy close to everything! Vernazza is an expensive place to stay but this room was quite reasonable compared to some and was extremely clean and beautifully kept. Coffee, tea and bar fridge in room.

This was one of the most charming places we stayed. Our large, newly renovated room had a window which overlooked the Piazza, Church, boats and water. Every morning we could look out and see the locals getting ready for a full day, drinking coffee, talking and enjoying one another. Of the 5 villages in the Cinque Terre region, I feel...

Vernazza is not very big, but this location was great; 5 minutes from the train station, tucked right behind the square so quieter in that regard, and 1 minute from square and sea. The accommodations were clean and exactly as the pictures posted. Included free wi-fi which is ideal, and we had air conditioning in our room which came in...
