We stayed five days with Francesca and Franco this season, and it couldn't have been better. Our room was clean & quiet, air con was never needed, with a lovely view of the sea in the distance. Note... Vernazza is located on very steep hills, so don't come here with overweight luggage and then complain about the stairs. Nearly all...

We stayed four nights in the FRANCA room, located just off of Piazza Marconi (main piazza) on a back alley. The Franca room was small, but comfortable with A/C, reliable Wi-Fi and updated fixtures. This room did not have a view, but we weren't in the room for very long anyway. Overall, this was a good value for the location...

Our fantastic 2 night stay in Room 1 in the Franca Maria Rooms is something we will never forget. It's in a perfect position - as you are in the zone, but above the crowds to see & observe all that goes with this quaint village, and you can retreat or rejoin in, as often as you want - as...

Great room. Cold aircon and super strong wifi Lots of steps, worth the exercise because of the pizza and beer you'll enjoy. Cash only ( cash is king in Vernazza) Go to the website and find the map to the main hq the guy will take you to your room from there. Big bathroom , English channels... Minute walk from...

Renting the Begain room was as easy as two emails. I was able to pick the room of my choice about four months before our arrival. Cash is king in Vernazza and this purveyor was no exception. The trade off was what I thought to be a tremendous bargain given the location and the quality of the room. We had...

We booked five nights here in Vernazza. I knew that they utilised rooms around the village, but I guess I did not expect to cart two large suitcases all the way from the train down to the waterfront where their reception is located, and then all the way back up the hill to the station again and then along a...

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....
