Cinque Terre has never been a quiet place. Not even when I visited it for the first time 15 years ago. Even back then the hoards of crowds in the middle of the day can be overwhelming. That’s why the best thing to do when visiting Cinque Terre is to stay in one of the towns itself!
⭐️ Don’t have time to go through all of these different hotels on this list? No need to worry! The absolute best hotel with a view in Cinque Terre in my opinion is Il Sogno di Manarola by The First. It has about 564 stellar reviews so you can’t go wrong with it!⭐️
This way you can explore in the morning and evening when most of the day trippers have already left. During the day you can go swimming or simply relax and enjoy the view from your fabulous hotel.
The region of Cinque Terre consists of 5 towns: Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso al Mare. And to go from town to town you can either hike or take the train that connects all 5 of them.

The Best Hotels In Cinque Terre With A View
1. Il Rifugio sul mare
Riomaggiore is one of the best towns to stay during your holiday in Cinque Terre. And Il Rifugio sul mare comes with one of the absolute best views there is!
Overlooking the iconic buildings and marina of Riomaggiore and the ideal place to enjoy a glass of wine while watching the sunset.
A short walk down takes you into the heart of the marina where you can either enjoy an Italian gelato, share a pizza or try some of the local delicacies such as fried fish.
2. Crêuza de Mä
❤️ PERFECT FOR A ROMANTIC HOLIDAY BOOK WELL IN ADVANCE!
This charming house in Riomaggiore offers 4 rooms that all come with incredible views. Wether you want to admire the picturesque town of Riomaggiore, the splendid gardens or wake up to watch the sunrise over the sea. All of that is possible if you’re staying at Crêuza de Mä.
The owners also offer a pick up service from the train station, which is ideal cause there are a lot of stairs in Cinque Terre that you would otherwise have to conquer with your suitcase.
The house comes with several terraces from where you can admire all the different views and even has a jacuzzi. Sounds pretty perfect for a romantic getaway!
3. Il Sogno di Manarola by The First
⭐️ LUXURIOUS STAY TAYLOR MADE EXCURSIONS
Located in the heart of Cinque Terre, their iconic “Red House” will leave you breathless. This historic building is situated in the highest part of the village, between the cliffs and the glittering of the sea.
If you’re looking for a truly unique experience and you’re a fan of a more luxurious stay then Il Sogno di Manarola by The First is the best hotel for you! They offer in room breakfast, private boat excursions and rooms decorated with the highest care.
Staying at The First Luxury Hotel you can breathe a romantic and peaceful atmosphere, perfect for couples looking for a special place to celebrate unique events such as a honeymoon or an anniversary.
4. La Torretta Lodge
SUSTAINABLE TOURISM ⭐️ The best stay in Manarola
La Torretta Lodge in Manarola truly is a once in a lifetime experience. Offering an incredible view over the picturesque town and located inside of an ancient tower.
La Torretta is also the perfect place to stay if you don’t want to contribute to the short term rental industry that is currently going on in Cinque Terre. Cause did you know tat by now only 300 residents still live there. All of the other appartments are reserved for tourists. My guess is it won’t be long until Cinque Terre becomes more of a museum than an authentic Italian village.
There are 11 rooms in total, all offering their very own unique view. Their Classic Room is perfect if it’s just the two of you, if you’re traveling with small children I would suggest going for one of the bigger rooms.
5. Il Borgo dei Ricordi, Terre Marine
Corniglia is one of the least visited towns in Cinque Terre. Probably cause it’s located on a hill instead of by the seaside. But if you’re looking for a more quiet experience and a cheaper stay then this is the town for you.
Il Borgo dei Ricordi, Terre Marine has a lovely terrace that overlooks the town of Corniglia and its rolling hills. And good to know is that the train between the villages of Cinque Terre already starts running at 5am and only stops after midnight. So even when staying in Corniglia you can go for an evening sunset swim in one of the other towns.
6. Rossi Tramonti 1, Terremarine
🐶 Pets are allowed 🏡 FULLY EQUIPPED APPARTMENT
This fully equipped appartment comes with air conditions, a kitchen and even a laundry machine. Perfect if you’re staying for a longer time in Cinque Terre.
When booking your stay you can choose between different apartment. I would choose one that has a terrace with a view over the rolling hills and Monterosso in the background. That way you can watch the sunset from your very own private balcony.
💵 Best Price Quality
Vernazza is definitely one of the most beautiful towns in Cinque Terre and might even be my personal favorite. I think that if I would go back to Cinque Terre that I would try to book this apartment.
Cadidina offers a stunning view over the harbor of Vernazza and within 5 minutes walking you’ll find yourself at the centre of the historic town.
Go for a sunset swim or grab a drink at Bar Gianni Franzi. And in the morning hike up to one of the beautiful viewpoints over Vernazza.
8. The Sunset Suite Vernazza
🌅 The best view over Vernazza
While The Sunset Suite Vernazza might be on the more expensive side, it does come with one of the most spectacular views over the picturesque town of Vernazza.
All you have to do is grab a bottle of wine from the local store and a take away pizza and you’re all set for the most incredible sunset from your very own rooftop terrace.
Also, how perfect is it that you have your very own lounge chairs for during the day? When the streets are litteraly combusting with people you can simply relax.
9. Eremo della Maddalena
💦 Swimming pool with a view
The Eremo della Maddalena sleeps up to 10/12 people and is divided into two separate wings that are united by internal covered courtyard. Upon entering the main wing of the house there is a small living room with a fireplace that leads into the fully equipped country style kitchen. To the right there is a bedroom with a queen size bed and a bathroom. Downstairs there is a large living room.
It’s located high up in the hills above Monterosso al Mare, far away from the big crowds of Cinque Terre. But still close enough so you can explore the beautiful coastal towns at ease and in the early and later hours when all of the crowds are gone.
There’s a huge garden that you can explore and during the hottest hours of the day you can simply relax by the pool. A very unique experience when traveling to Cinque Terre!
10. Bea’s Apartment – The window to the sea
🏖 Perfect for a beach holiday
If you’re looking for an apartment that’s located right at the beachfront then Bea’s Apartment is the right fit for you.
Monterosso al Mare is the only town that has its own sandy beach so if that’s very important to you then this is the ideal place to stay for you.
The town itself is in my personal opinion less beautiful than the 4 others so the proximity of a sandy beach will be the deciding factor.
