In the heart of the 5 Terre Coast, Hotel Gianni Franzi offers en suite rooms just below Vernazza's Doria Castle. Its terraces offer stunning views of the Ligurian Sea and the village, and Wi-Fi is free in public areas.
Located in 3 buildings, all rooms at the Gianni Franzi have a simple décor and terracotta floors. Each includes a cooling fan and the private bathroom comes with a shower.
A few steps from the rooms location and by the village's main square, the property has a bar and restaurant offering local cuisine and national specialities.
the breakfast is included from 15 april to 15 october
Gorgeous setting and location in Vernazza. We only wish we could stay again during warmer months when the patio bar is open overlooking the ocean. Rooms are very comfortable with gorgeous views of the ocean. Restaurant downstairs is fantastic as well.
We will be back!
It is more like a hotel apartment than a real private apartment (a good thing). The studio apartment had everything we needed, a picturesque view of Vernazza, bathroom and double bed. Amazing view from the terrace where breakfast is served. A lot of stairs (~100) leading from the main square of Vernazza to the rooms, but it is really not as bad as it sounds in other reviews. Helpful and friendly staff. All in all, recommendable and perfect located for the price. Would stay there again.
The location was great, and the room was very nice. This is a hotel which I should have realized before I booked. We prefer the more typical airbnb experience.
Nice, clean, small room with access to a small terrace with a beautiful view (and wifi!). The breakfast was very good in another terrace a few meters from the building.
Very clean, nice room convenient to the center of town. I think the rooms are all a bit different so be sure to specify what you want ie balcony, size etc.
Our stay here was good. There were lots of stairs to climb, which is true everywhere in the Cinque Terre. However, our host allowed us to leave a bag which we didn't need in the downstairs area, which was very helpful. The bathroom was private, but down the hall - still ok. The view from our room as well as the terraces of the hotel was fantastic!!!
The booking was very simple and email communication was quick and well organised. the gianni franzi bar/restaurant was closed for their day off on the day we arrived (which we knew) so emanuele arranged for one of the staff to meet us at an agreed time in front of the bar. there was a note on the door with a number to call if needed and as organised simona was exactly on time and took us to a very spacious, spotless and nice room overlooking the village. the breakfast terrace is amazing with uninterrupted views to the ocean and cliffs. there is another spectacular cliff terrace in the building next to our room and a wifi area as well, which guests have access to. Eveything was excellent and we were especially impressed with how friendly and helpful emanuele and all the staff were. We had a great experience with gianni franzi rooms. Everyone knows there are steps in Verrnazza and we sure got used to them - more excuse to reward ourselves with a gelati or 6!
Truly loved and enjoyed my stay here! Here are just some of the reasons:
1.) Extremely clean
2.) Modern bathroom
3.) The view for breakfast in the top patio
4.) The breakfast was simple but assorted which included meat and cheese, yogurt, pastries, cereal, coffee etc.
The only two small gripes would be:
1.) They offered free wi-fi but we were never able to connect, may be the location
2.) There are TONS of stairs to get to your room!!
The room was updated and bigger than expected. Housekeeping cleaned the room daily.We had a lovely breakfast over looking the ocean every morning. The host and employees were friendly and helpful. Vernazza is a charming village with lots of shops and good restaurants. We ate at Gianni's restaurant (10% discount) the last night and had a very good experience. Highly recommend this place. When we come back we would book here again. There are LOTS of stairs ( 89 outdoor & 20 indoor steps to our room ). WORTH every step !!!
Nnice hotel. Amazing breakfast terrace. Clean rooms, good shower and bathroom, but many stairs to reach the room.
Vernazza is a heavenly place on earth.
