Hotel Alla is located in the town of Monterosso in the Fegina district just about 100 m from the sea, and around 500 metres from the train station and approx. 1 km down to the old town centro storico.
The hotel has an entrance with a garden with a fountain, and also a garden to the rear with shady palms and pine trees. There are tables and chairs below the palms where you can take a bit of shade.

Inside you will find a spacious hall with a bar, a lift and a lounge area with TV. There is also an extra TV room with an internet point and free Wi-Fi (free) in the reception area. In the breakfast room, breakfast is served buffet style. Please note that the hotel's standard is by no means flashy, but a middle class hotel with a good location in the Cinque Terre National Park.
The hotel offers free parking with approx. 20 spaces which cannot be pre-booked, but there is usually room for everyone. Should you be unlucky and not to find space on arrival, you can choose the pay parking on the street or in the large car park by the sea (about 150 m away) and look again for a space the next day.
There is no restaurant on site but there are several restaurants in the local district of Fegina and even more in Monterosso's old town. The hotel has discount agreements with some places and you can ask at reception for further information. The hotel also has an agreement with a lido where you can rent umbrella and two sun loungers - which you book directly on site. Fees apply for use of the tennis court, located approx. 200 metres from the hotel.
When we book a hotel we are more than willing to pay extra for having a balcony - which we also booked this time.
But we got a room without a balcony and a normal window - the only window was in the ceiling.
So we paid for something we did not get.
