What a dream this place is! We wanted a relaxing stay to get away from the crowds, eat good healthy food and walk and explore each town at our leisure. Staying in Mea on Manorola was even better then we imagined. We stayed 4 nights in the Mea room which was nicely decorated, clean and very comfortable. The B &... More

I stayed at the Apt Odina in Arpiau. Apparently,Arpiau has 10 rooms in 3 different buildings very closed to each other. My apt has a nice big window facing the sea. We can use the lounge with big balcony on the roof top of main building. Wifi is free and fast. We can buy coffee for 0.80euro. The way to... More

We stayed in Ondina studio, a self-contained apartment a few doors away from the main building. Manarola was our favourite place to stay at of the five villages. Pros: Ocean front view that's unbeatable Self-contained with kitchenette and fridge Friendly honest approachable owner and room service staff Safe in the room Cons: Location is physically-challenging. Not suitable for everyone Bed... More

Bottom line: This hotel is amazing, but keep in mind that it's a no-frills setup. The location makes this hotel. It is overlooking the ocean, with an amazing shared roof deck perfect for watching the sunset. We spent a good part of the evening on the roof deck drinking wine and looking out at the beautiful scenery. It is close... More

We booked ZIGUIELA room for our stay at Manarola, Cinque Terre for 2 nights in May 2014. What a lovely place. Sunset with a glass of wine - it's a must. Room is clean and perfect for 2. Strongly recommended.

Everyday we opened the shutters on our Ondina apartment, it took our breath away. The mornings looking down on the harbor - you could see the rocks on the bottom of the azure blue water. The brutal sun deterred us from opening the windows on some afternoons. We couldn't wait for the sunsets. We are spoiled and did slightly miss... More

We had a lovely 4 night break in Manarola, one night in Vandiris room rent also managed by Debra and 3 nights in Arpaiu. Vandiris had the most wonderful balcony and view but Arpaiu Mea Room was also lovely. The communal wifi/tea room and balcony upstairs was perfect and we had lovely sunsets with a glass of wine and pizza.... More

My love and I stayed here for two nights in june. We stayed in the Mea room, which is of pretty good sized room with a great view and a nice bathroom! There is no aircondition in the room, but it will get to an acceptable temperature if you keep the windows open at night. It has an amazing balcony... More

What sets this place apart, in my opinion, is the spectacular views from the deck. So easily the owners could have turned the space allocated to the guests into two more rooms and reap the profits but instead they have left it for the guests to share and enjoy. The view is breathtaking and it's hard to believe there is... More

We stayed here for 1 night and I wish we had been there for 2. It was perfect- we bought a bottle of white cinque terre wine and enjoyed the sunset on the terrace. We were the only two up there so it was perfect. We had the Mia room and loved having the window open to hear the crashing... More
