Would highly recommend this great hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff. Great location on a hill overlooking the town and ocean. Really good breakfast. Good base for exploring CT with good restaurant options nearby.

This is a long overdue review. We stayed at Villa Steno earlier this year in May and have been meaning to write this review but haven’t got around to writing it. Our first visit to this lovely hotel was in 2013 and when we decided to visit Cinque Terre the second time, choosing the same hotel was a no brainer!... More

The room was clean and tidy with a comfortable bed, functional bathroom and private balcony with a view of the ocean. The villa is in the old town just a short walk from the beach. It is up a few...

From the moment we arrived, my daughter and I experienced nothing but first rate treatment at Hotel Villa Steno. The evening desk attendant, Anna, arranged for taxi pick-up at the train station, which we greatly appreciated. Our room was immaculately clean and had a lovely balcony with a fabulous view. The spacious room was nicely appointed and, above all, incredibly... More

My husband and I recently spent three nights at the beautiful Hotel Villa Steno. It is situated high on a cliff that over looks the sea and the town below. We had a lovely table right off of our room with an incredible view of the water and the town of Monterosso below. The proprietors and staff here are simply... More

Loved Hotel Villa Steno! Everyone was warm, charming and helpful. Special shout out to Rikki who we tried to take home with us. The rooms were beautiful, with an incredible view of the ocean. Breakfast was yummy. Can't wait to return.

This is a lovely hotel with amazing views, very comfortable and up to date, and with personalized attention and service from the owners. We had a large room (actually 2 rooms, an entry room with a desk and single bed, and a bedroom with a queen size bed) with 2 terraces. Everything was clean and modern. The breakfast was wonderful...
