My husband & I stayed here for two nights in August 2013 and it was the best accommodation we experienced on our two week Italy trip. I browsed the website and emailed Barbara about the dates I was interested in. At the time, there were only two Trip Advisor reviews, so I was a little hesitant about just booking a room by email. However, after exchanging several emails with Barbara, I was confident in my decision! The reservation was just made through email and no money is owed until arrival (and the cost is very reasonable.) A few days before arrival I notified Barbara when we would be arriving for check-in. Barbara gives great instructions on how to get to the location, which is right at the center of Riomaggiore. The location is the best part about this place.
There are many steep steps to climb to get up to check-in and to the rooms, so be aware of that when packing for your trip. We each had full-size suitcases, and I definitely would not have been able to carry the luggage up myself. Luckily my husband was able to.
The rooms are located right above the Bar Centrale, which has great food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and has amazing drinks for anytime of the day or for a nightcap. And it is just a quick walk back up to the room!
Overall, we were very happy with our entire stay. The room was very clean & cleaned daily. There were plenty of clean towels and there was air conditioning. I highly recommend staying at ViaDeiBanchi! I encourage those who are hesitant (like I was) reserving a room that is NOT a hotel and reserving just through email. It was a great experience and I would definitely stay here again!
