We stayed in Ca'de Baran recently and couldn't complain about a thing!
The directions to get there were simple, and the room was very basic but comfortable, adequate and extremely clean. The location is very central, right in the main street, not far from the harbour, so no walking up millions of stairs!!! Manarola is a great place to stay in the Cinque Terre as it is a small village that can't have too many tourists ; ) it is central and the main walk between the towns (via del amore) is at its doorstep! You can jump on a train or catch a ferry from there to the other towns. The restaurants are lovely and reasonable prices and there are some nice little places to swim but no beach. You get a good look at local village life with the boats going in and out and locals about, not like some of the other more touristy towns.
The family run business has a pottery shop below the rooms, and they are all friendly. The rooms are great value for money, clean, good air con, but dont have a kitchenette, they are quite small, but we were hardly in them.
The only downer is the occasional train noise, it didn't bother us too much as after all the walking we slept like babies! Warning: the walk from Montorosso to Vernazza is a steep 2 hr walk as is the walk from Vernazza to Corniglia. Check first before you take off as some tracks are closed, when we were there the Corniglia to Manarola track was closed.
