I booked based on the Rick Steves recommendation and I was very disappointed. Vernazza streets were packed. It felt like a Disney attraction. Our very sparse room with double bed was up 72 steps - NO elevator! Tried to take a shower at 7:30 AM, but there was no hot water. View out the window was of ugly neighboring roofs....

Location is wonderful. Room was at the top of many, many stairs (the last segment wrapped around a rope for a handrail). The room was clean and the bathroom (private, but next door) was fine. Our bedroom and others on this floor opened onto a common room that had a wonderful (but very small) view of the harbor. The manager...

When booking, ask for a room with a harbour view. It is magnificent. Expect 3 flights of stairs, no elevator. Some stairs are uneven, and as the lights are not always on, you could find yourself negotiating those three flights in the dark. There are, 5 restaurants and 2 bars right below in the small plaza. While that is quaint...

We stayed here one night, working our way down Italy. Some lower rooms had a view of the harbor (my daughter stayed in one, very nice). We just had a smaller room up a very narrowing winding staircase, which was a little uncomfortable to walk with large backpacks, but the room was clean, bathroom was roomy. We appreciated the fan...

The window view of the habor from room 8 is magnificent. we could only get one night in this room and hotel. Not very friendly or helpful. We took backpacks to help with carrying our things up so many steps. The steps are a trade off for the view. No airconditioning but we had good breeze. No breakfast available. I...

Albergo Barbara is so much fun to stay at.There area lot of stairs, but we just keep stopping. If you brought a lot of luggage, you won't next time .The fellow travelers usually have a "hostel attitude" and just enjoy the clean safe environment and the wonderful view(or not) We met some very interesting people Giuseppe and Patricia are kind...

As a place to rest in between hiking this place is perfect - accessable and with the bare minimum of nessesities - nice clean rooms/private bathrooms. quaint with great views of the harbor/coast, fair value for money, and of course wifi.

This is our third stay at the Albergo Barbara, which is a spartan hotel. The furnishings are simple, the beds are average, the shower and hot water are good, the linens are nice (I especially like their "Nido di Ape" honeycomb towels), and everything is very clean. The location and view, if you get a harborview room, are spectacular. The...

Rooms are clean, check in staffs are polite and kind. There will be a environmental related fees at €1 per person per night. Although the rooms are shared bathroom, but bathrooms are clean. The only thing needed to improve is the hot water is not stable. And it's not family friendly as it has no lift and the hotel is...

Albergo Barbara wasn't our first choice but we were glad we managed to get a room here due to other hotel rooms being unavailable due to the summer peak period. As many have mentioned, there's lots of climbing to do, however once we reached our room, it was worth the effort. We had reserved the double room with sea and...
