This hotel is an adorable mom and pop kind of place. The owner, Elizabeth goes out of her way to make sure have everything you need and feel comfortable. Full disclosure: It is a little tricky to find and requires climbing stairs but it is worth it. Spend little bit of extra money and stay in the suite for a view you won't want to get out of bed for. The train is conveniently located as well. Stay anywhere else and you'll be sorry!
We loved this hotel--from the pleasant and helpful staff, to the delicious breakfast by the sea, the comfortable room, and the beautiful landscape. Our room had a beautiful view of the water and we could here the sounds of the waves lapping up on shore. Only wish we could've stayed longer.

Stayed at La Spezia one night so we could day trip to Cinque Terra. Had enough time to visit the resort and beach area of La Ricci (only about 15 mins away). The hotel is only a few blocks from the shopping district and some of the higher rated restaurants. The breakfast buffet was very good. Lots of variety and an awesome self serve espresso machine. The hotel can park your car for 20 euro or if you can find a blue spot you can park overnight by buying the ticket after 8pm.

We had an excellent stay at the Hotel Firenze. Our room had a great view with a balcony and it was a great spot for a drink in the evening. Our room was clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent each morning.

That us "old" as in the 60's...in a good way! The NYT article I read that recommended the hotel in the first place said it was a place that looked like you'd see James Bond by the pool at in 1973 and that was pretty close to the truth. Fantastic views and service and the location has to be seen to be believed. It really is like out of a movie. Didn't get a chance to try the restaurant for anything other than breakfast (which was good) but we plan on coming back here as soon as we can.
I could not be happier with my stay at Hotel Punta Mesco. From the first moment, the hotel staff was incredibly warm, welcoming and accommodating. Our train arrived in Monterosso at 10AM and check-in is at 2pm. However, we were able to leave our bags at the hotel and use the facilities on the main floor to change and go to the beach. When we arrived back from the beach, the staff had already put our luggage in the room for us. They provided suggestions and help when needed and the hotel is literally a 4 minute walk from the train station. It could not have been more convenient. They told us how to get the Cinque Terre Park Pass for hiking as well. Upon check-out, we again left our luggage at the hotel, went for a hike and even spent the afternoon at the beach. Our train was later in the evening, so after the beach we were able to shower and get ready for dinner before departing. Again, the hotel could not have been nicer or more accommodating. Will definitely recommend to friends! Also, ask for a cappuccino at breakfast -- so delicious.

We wanted to be neaer the Cinque Terra and regretted not staying in one of the charming towns.
BUT we changed our mind as soon as we reached MY ONE. It was charming, the front desk staff VERY nice, very helpful.
We very much enjoyed the room - it had an extra room with a courtyard that was simply amazing. i cannot recall the room number but our stay was Sept 24 and 25
