This place is awesome. I booked it for a vacation in August due to reviews from this website and it was the cheapest place I could find in Cinque Terre at the time @ 120 euros/night. It is peaceful and serene, located at the very top of the hill in Riomaggiore.
That is the one of two downsides to this location. The hill is not very large by CA standards, but it is steep! Of course we were there in August when it was humid, so it made walking up the hill with luggage pure torture, and I run approximately 12 miles a week. There is a shuttle bus that will pick you up at the bottom of the hill, for I think 1.5 euros, and it is worth it if you have bags. Otherwise, you should be good.
The other downside is the showers are TINY. I am 5'2" and it was tight for me. My boyfriend that is 6'3" could barely fit!
In order to book, go to the website and e-mail Enrico, the hotel owner. His English is excellent and he's a great person. Each room comes with a semi-private terrace and breakfast is available in the lobby every morning. Enrico is a fabulous host and will give you great advice on what to do when you are there, if you need it.
The rooms are clean and modern, and again the terrace is awesome. We used our terrace every night, drinking local wine and smoking cigars, while we were there. Not to mention, this terrace is where my fiancee proposed. The perfect place! I can't wait to go back!
