La Poesia is an absolute gem in Monterosso al Mare! This quaint 4-bedroom B & B provides a delightful local experience. The owner, Nicolette is amazing. She met us at the train station on her bike and arranged a taxi to the B & B, the home where she grew up. Her warm, genuine and accommodating demeanor is so refreshing....

During holiday in October we arrived in Monterosso expecting off season rates and ease of booking, only to land at train station with the town packed. With help from the great information center near train station, we were fortunate to get linked to this great, small inn. Our hostess came on her bike to greet us and arranged a cab...

La Poesia is a very cute place that is sort of expensive for what you get, though the price may have been competitive - I just don't know. We had a tiny room with a good-sized bathroom. The location is good and Nicoletta, the proprietor, is delightful. She symbolized the Monterosso experience for us - folksy, authentic, fun. Breakfast was...

Nicoletta did everything to enjoy our stay. This B&B is high level and in a quiet street, close to the center. Rooms are confortable and when the weather is fine you can have your breakfast on a terrace.

This 4 room bed and breakfast is perfectly located a block or 2 from the restaurant center and beach in Monterossa. The breakfast is beyond belief and served in the quaint courtyard. The proprietess, Nicholetta, is as charming as the accommodations. She was born in the house and treats it as her her home and the guests as her personal...

Nicoletta very accommodating, 15 min from train station, good location and close to the middle of town and restaurants. Shower small, room size small, typical B&B, no staff on premises after cleaning so need to advise arrival time, no English TV channels, mattress not real comfortable, amenities like soap n shampoo. Small TV. Good breakfast with omelette, WiFi limited. Nice...

This property is like a haven in the madness of Monterosso. Arriving we were overwhelmed by the August crowds. The train station is chaotic and crowded. Nicoletta was our saviour! Arriving on her bicycle to meet us! The property has a lovely tranquil terrace. Rooms are small but adequate. Not luxurious but comfortable and practical. There is also a small...

This is my third visit to Monterosso and I can say that I returned because of the beauty of the Cinque Terre villages, but the real reason is to stay with Nicoletta at La Poesia. Nicoletta is a true hostess, making myself and friends feel welcomed and comfortable. I traveled with a large group and Nicoletta went out of her...

Nicolette the owner is so good at her job. She arranged to pick us up from the station, and welcomed us with a bottle of Prosecco and a few bites to eat whilst we sat in the lovely terrace and filled in the normal hotel paperwork. The room was clean but dated and small however we were never in as...

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...
