“Perfect location in pretty village”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2011

This hotel is ideal if you want to stay in Manarola-it provides a decent and cosy base but do not expect luxury modern facilities. It has everything you need and is a perfect base for exploring the Cinque Terre but as a hotel itself is a little dated.

The entrance is almost hidden and unassuming. The hotel is right by the water, and there are many, many restaurants on the street as well as little shops were we had a good time. The staff were very helpful. There is a restaurant on site, as well as the breakfast which was good and varied. It was a good location to go from village to village and I just can't say enough good things. We loved it and would return there any time. Staff were very helpful.

We (four female friends who are celebrating a big ' 0' birthday year) stayed from 11th to 15th October and loved our rooms above the street and waterfront. Very special location with great breakfasts and very helpful staff. We loved our walks along the trails and through the other villages but Manarola was our favourite town, especially after discovering the Cantina Dello Sio Bramante two doors up the street from Marina Piccola..
We are back home in Tas, Aust and wondering how Manarola is coping after the rain and mud slides. Please reply. Jenny

A friend and I stayed at this hotel a couple of weeks ago. The hotel is quaint and very clean. As with most Eurpean hotels, the rooms are small but our room was roomy enough for the two of us for overnight. Breakfast was included in the price of the room and had a very good selection. The staff were very accommodating. The only issue we had with the room is that there were tiny little ants running around on the floor of the rooms and those guys bit.

The staff was very helpful, friendly and accommodating to us. We arrived around 8 P.M. and the person at the desk (can't remember his name) helped carry our luggage to the room. We had a nice clean room with ocean view and big window. The breakfast was great and even though we arrived a little late, they brought some of the food back out without having to ask and made fresh coffee for us. Manarola was my favorite place on this trip around Italy and the hotel was perfect for us. We hiked the upper trail from Manarola to Corniglia one day then took the train to Monterrsso the next day and hiked to Vernazza and again to Cornigila then took the train back to manarola. Marina Piccola is a charming place to stay in the Cinque Terre

The Hotel Marina Piccola is in a perfect location in the picturebook Cinque Terre town of Manarola. It is on both the main street and the waterfront. We had ocean view rooms, which provided amazing views, but they were a bit loud since they are right above the hotel restaurant. We would not choose ocean view rooms if we ever have the chance to go back. The rooms were clean and comfortable with nice bathrooms. Breakfast was very good, and the restaurant is also very good for dinner, with the best views in Manarola. The one most important tip is to pack light...it is a very long and steep walk to the hotel from the town parking lot, with no driving in most of the town (and it is also a fairly long walk from the train station). The staff is very pleasant, though they don't speak very much English. The Cinque Terre was our favorite place in Italy!

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights recently. we loved the town and scenic location of the hotel near the sea. we had lunch outside in the restaurant and the food was great.

the people that work the desk are not the friendliest. there is noone to help you get your bags up to your room so we had to lug them up 3 flights of stairs.

the worst is the noise late at night from the little bar 2 doors down. 2 AM and rude smokers are outside chatting like its the middle of the day. We kept the windows and shutters to our terrace open to enjoy the nice breeze and perfect temperature. Big mistake since the rude people outside kept us awake until I yelled downt at them to shut up !
Great setting ruined by drunk smokers....
I can not recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: find another place in town
