We spent 2 nights staying at La Poesia last week and had a wonderful time. Nicolette was absolutely delightful. Such a friendly and warm host that also served up a delicious breakfast. The only slightly negative comment we would have is that the room is quite small but given how much there is to do in the area (unless it's...

We arrive in Monterosso by train and immediately Nicoletta was waiting for us (we did not expect anyone there). She greeted us and had a taxi waiting to take us to our place. There was no added cost for this. Upon arrival she told us to get settled and meet her in the courtyard for a snack. She had laid...

The previous reviews have said all there is to say. Nicolletta is a very sweet lady who does the job right. From her super clean, modern accommodations to her delicious breakfasts she has found a niche in this beautiful little village. If you can stay here you will not be disappointed.

Don't hesitate to book here. It is in a perfect location. SO glad we stayed here over Vernazza which was too crowded. We were greeted by a very hospitable Nicoletta who very kindly arranged a taxi to get us in the pouring rain from the train station. (Luckily the rain cleared up for our stay.) The room is delightful and...

If you are heading to the Cinque Terre then you absolutely must stay in La Poesia In Montorooso. In all our travels we have never had such wonderful and delightful service like we received here.

They only have a few rooms but...if you get one, you won. Nicoletta is the quintessential B and B owner. She totally gets it. The place is well located...near everything but not noisy. We were welcomed with a 'snack' of pizzas, quiches, a bottle of wine, fruit...and delicious desserts. The rooms are immaculate. The towels are what you would find...

If you are staying in Monterosso, La Poesia is perfect. The owner Nicoletta makes you feel like family and is always available to help. She picked us up from the station, made dinner reservations for us, made sure anything we needed was attended to, and she always did it with a smile. The breakfast is excellent, the rooms are spacious...

Guys, you've read all the reviews and keep hearing about how wonderful Nicoletta is, right? It's all true. My husband and I started our Italian honeymoon with a visit to Cinque Terre and she made it such an enjoyable experience. From coordinating parking, taxis, and dinner reservations, she handled everything. The breakfasts on the rooftop patio amongst the lemon trees...

We stayed at La Poesia for 4 nights in July. Our room was small but clean, comfortable although the bed was rather hard. The AC worked great which was a plus since it was close to 95 degrees, (good AC isn't always the case in Europe). Nicoletta was a wonderful hostess who had a taxi pick us up and drop...

The owner Nicholetta is amazing! Felt at home instantly. Free wifi in the rooms, airconditioner was great. Breakfast was out of this world!! Rooms are small but wasn't an issue for us on our honeymoon. Will absolutely be going here again. Loved Monterosso and this hotel!
