If you read other reviews you will notice that Nicoletta greets you at the train station and has a taxi waiting for you. It is by far the best service we experienced in Italy. She pays for the taxi too. The rooms are immaculate, on the small side but very duable with king size beds. The shower/bathroom is a nice...

We stayed in the Giglio Rosso Suite while at La Poesia and it was delightful. A great size and spotlessly clean but what really made our stay here was not only the beautiful setting of Monterosso, but the charming welcome from Nicoletta. We were met and taken by taxi to the hotel, welcomed warmly with her local recommendations and a...

We arrived at Monterosso station and were met by Nicoletta. She had arranged a cab to take us to la Poesia. She cycled ahead. She was very friendly and gave us a charming welcome. La Poesia, at €190 a night is pretty disappointing and our room was even more so, though there is a very pleasant terrace, where breakfast was...

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...
