If you want to feel like you won the lottery, stay at La Mala. While it may be pricier than other places in Vernazza, it's worth the guarantee of perfection. La Mala is everything you imagine when you dream of that perfect spot in Cinque Terre. The rooms are simple but chic. They are well maintained and spotless. Even the...

The moment we were met at the railway station by the delightful Gian, we knew that there would be something amazing waiting for us at the top of the 100 steps.... You must stay in Room 31 to experience the magic of La Mala , we only had 2 nights there but could have stayed a lifetime.... The view, the...

We stayed for two nights in room 31 in March. The room is absolutely lovely with clean whites everywhere and a spectacular view of the sea. The room was spotless, spacious and welcoming. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom large, modern and pristine. This is likely the nicest place to stay in Vernazza...modern, clean and spacious. We also felt...

My husband and I just returned from a two-night stay at La Mala and my only complaint is that it wasn't nearly long enough! The views, ambience and hospitality were truly amazing. Just one word of warning: this isn't the place for those unable to climb stairs! Those who can, though, are in for a treat. I can't wait to...

We have to agree with every positive comment already mentioned. Room 31 on the second floor facing the Sea was magical. I would also say that "Giamba" and his mother are gems. Take the time to listen to their suggestions and recommendations. One of our best evenings was dinner arranged by "Giamba" at Trattoria Dal Billy in the neighboring Manarola....

Just spent two days here in the off season, in Room 31, to which the proprietor was nice enough to upgrade us because no one else was in the hotel. It's a gorgeous room, with white appointments and warm wooden floors, and two wide windows that look out over the sea. The place is small, just a few rooms, all...

Spent two nights with my Wife to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary in La Mala Vernazza. We stayed in the top room with an amazing view of the sea and fort. The room itself was very stylish and comfortable and breakfast is served in one of the quaint little cafes on the harbour. Many thanks to all the staff for making...

We stayed at La Mala in room 26 for 3 nights recently. Just like many others have stated, La Mala is a top place to stay. Our very heavy suitcases were carried up the stairs and we were given all the information about our room and the village.. Views were just amazing from the terrace. Would not hesitate in recommending...

Incredible location with a amazing view over the sea. We had room number 31. When we woke up, and looked outside of the window...it was breath taking. I asked the ultimate question and...she had no chance to say no :-)
