Monterrosso: Affittacamere Sull’Arco
Located about 10 minutes from the Monterroso train station, Sull’ Arco is quite an easy find considering the winding streets and little alleys of the Cinque Terre. Just off the main little street in the old town, it is a very steep climb to find the hotel on the first level. If you have a lot of luggage, do not try to bring it all up at once. Definitely a place that you need the light on your phone to direct you in the later hours of the day/night. This is the Cinque Terre though, the steepness of everything is standard.
Plenty of beautiful and quaint little shops within walking distance; yes, I did spend up large. A 2-minute walk into the old town and harbour. Cinque Terre is quite steep in most towns, however, Monterroso is considered as the flattest, so the hotel is not too steep a climb to find.
That said, what a lovely little place run by equally as lovely people. Greeted by the staff they were so quick to pour warmth and great hospitality upon you. Going so far as to walk you through your room and tell you about all the wonderful things to see/do/eat in Monterroso.
The room is simple but filled with everything you need for your stay. The bathroom was roomy, the bed comfortable enough and the room spacious. Definitely a great stay for a few nights in Monterroso.
Situated in an alley that houses a brilliant bakery and a lovely restaurant which serves great Aperitivo, meals and breakfast. I’m a coffee snob, being from Melbourne, but the cafe underneath Sull’Arco serves a great cappuccino in the mornings. The hotel itself does not do meals but there is ample coffee and tea facilities at reception coupled with biscuits and other such things.
Would definitely stay again. The hotel staff alone are just too lovely!
