We stayed in a large suite (I think room 7) for 3 days in mid June. We did not have a balcony, but the room had an ocean view, a large 7 foot bath tub in the bedroom, small kitchen and dining table, flat screen tv, and bathroom. We paid 180 euros per night. This included a very simple continental breakfast.
The best part about this room is the size and the view. Compared to other places we stayed in Italy this was a very large room. We enjoyed the big bathtub and the view, but the real place to relax was the breakfast terrace. Ultra quiet and serene, with beautiful views of the sea and the terraced vineyards that surround this cute little village.
This room was one of the more expensive ones throughout our trip to Italy (Lake Como & the Dolomites), but was a worthwhile splurge. It's hard to have a bad time in the Cinque Terre. My only complaint about this hotel is that the breakfast is probably the worst we had at any place we stayed. It was definitely on the small side and included lots of little pre-processed, pre-packaged items (cheese, spreads for the bread). Unlike most of the other places we stayed where breakfast included cereal as well as fresh cheese, coldcuts and bread there wasn't a sense of fresh foods being used. Understandably, these places are hard to stock but it seems like they could do much better on breakfast. They will make you a second cappuccino or hot chocolate, however!
Manarola is a good choice if you want peace and quiet. We tended to stay out late in other villages (Monterosso or Varnazza) and then come back to Manarola to sleep. For us it worked. If I were travelling alone, I would probably want to stay in one of the other two villages I mention above.
