Great hotel for exploring the Italian Riviera. Moneglia is a great base town with lots of charm and character without all the horrid crowds of the cinque terre. Overall a good hotel at a great price.

Pros: The hotel is a ~5min walk from the beach and ~10min from the train station. The rooms were small, but clean and functional. Our room had a gorgeous balcony overlooking the town which we made use of nightly. The staff was very friendly and was happy to offer us advice when asked or get us beach towels. The free breakfast was simple, but good. We went to the restaurant hotel for dinner one night and it was tasty, but portions were rather small.

Cons:
Our room was on the top floor opposite the front desk and we did not get reliable wifi. Wifi was available in the hallways and lobby and it may have only been our room with the issues. The room did not have screens which made us choose between a stuffy room and rampant mosquitos.

We are a young (26) couple who were on a backpacking trip in Europe. We were looking for a budget-friendly place close to Cinque Terre. This hotel had a very friendly host who offered us lots of great advice. It was a quick walk to the train station, where it did not cost any more than the train pass for the Cinque Terre cities. Most of the seaside trails were closed anyway, and only having one full day, we had to use the train anyway. We also discovered the Moneglia is a great town with a lot of character and friendly people. It also had a lovely sandy beach, which was a great surprise after the pebble beaches in Cinque Terre. Our room had a nice balcony, but did have a small water heater and thus tended to run out of hot water. The wi-fi worked in our room because we were on the second floor just above the front desk. The hallway noise is pretty loud in the rooms, but we were up early to hike anyway.

Room Tip: Stay in room 2, on the second floor just above the front desk, if you need wi-fi in the room like we did.

I found this hotel very cosy, and you felt very looked after. However, the real reason for going here isn't the hotel in itself. It's the place, Moneglia, that makes this one of my favourite holiday.

Moneglia is very different from the rest of the coast as it lacks international tourists; this is a beautiful sea town where the Italians go for their holiday. For me, this makes it ideal as you get much better value (and food!!) for for your money compared to places like Vernazza, and you can relax in a different way. (You can easily access the whole of Cinque Terre on frequent trains (with fantastic views of the coast as the rail is placed only a few meter from the sea), as well as getting from and to Pisa airport within an hour).

I didn't find this hotel expensive at all. In comparison with other hotels on the coast, Hotel Eva La Romantica is a bargain. We had a lovely room, with a private patio where we drank local wine and ate delicious cheese before going out for a meal at any of the local tavernas. (The Italians know how to do food!!)

I would very much recommend this hotel.

We're POL-ITA couple, and we were looking for an easy going hotel to stay with our 6 months old girl in. And the hotel was exactly what we hoped for. We will surely come back if we visit Moneglia again.
Moneglia itself is a great place to stay if you want to visit this part of Liguria – situated between 5terre and Portofino or Genova, and surely less crowded and offering better prices than any of them.
The hotel has perfect location - just a minute walk from the city centre, 5 min walk from the free beach, 15 min from the train station. The hotel is easily reachable by car, and has its own parking (though it takes 2 min climbing up the street to reach it from the hotel).
The room we stayed in was basic, quite small, with very narrow bathroom. But it had quite a big balcony. And was kept very clean.
The breakfast buffet was just perfect - simple but offering good choice of sweet and salty things. Warm things (eg. scrambled eggs) were offered if requested, the same goes for Italian coffee (instant one was available from the buffet). We have also eaten one dinner in the restaurant - not an overwhelming quality, but tasty.
Crib for our little one was ready upon our arrival (clean and in perfect shape, with linen provided), and high chair was waiting for us in the restaurant.
And the friendliness of the personnel easily made up for all the minor discomforts (have you ever had hotel owners jumping up from behind the reception desk to make your kid laugh? we did :-) )
Overall – we really do recommend it.

The hotel is placed in a beautiful area,with a private parking and very close to the seaside.
The rooms are absolutely small,in the bathroom even smaller and everything needs to be refurnished even the lightplaques!
There is NO air conditioning,so I don't understand why they declare it.
The breakfast was fast food breakfast.
