We liked the location. That was about it. The woman at checkin and check out was trying to bully everyone into paying with cash, pretending her machine wouldn’t work. For future, it does work. We just waited her out and she made it work. There were no supplies in the bathroom. No shampoo etc. Also no A/C. Also the bed was really uncomfortable and the rooms (there are only 4, inside an old apartment building, it’s more of an Airbnb/hostel than a hotel) the rooms are right above a restaurant and are less than 100 feet from the train track. The train runs until at least 1:30am and toots a horn at all hours. There’s always also garbage pick up truck right outside out window working at 2:00am. This is the first bad review I have ever written, but this place just really needs to renovate, get some A/C and quit scamming people into using the atm when they CAN use their credit cards. If location is your only requirement than this place is for you. It’s steps away from the ocean and shops and restaurants. But we were disappointed and hardly slept for the 3 nights we were here. I’ve stayed in much nicer Airbnb’s and hotels for €95/night. Hopes this helps future travelers to Monterosso make the right decision themselves. We love Monterosso and will be back one day.
