We were walking in Cinque Terre at the end of this August.
Marina Piccola, our base for three nights, was booked well in advance. Actually we had been recommended another hotel in Manarola but they could not accept payment by a credit card that's why we chose Marina Piccola. This was a mistake. It did look good on their website. The hotel is overlooking the harbour and the staff at the hotel was very proud that they could give us a room with a sea view. When we had arrived we realized that the place where the hotel is situated is the busiest, noisiest and the most crowded spot in the town. Then we were seen to the room - with a sea view, but just above the restaurant! When we got there we realised that there was no space even for one suitcase while we had two. The room was so tiny!
We could not stay. We searched around and were happy to book all three nights at the hotel initially recommended to us - on the hill, away from the noise and crowd, with spacious bedrooms, garden where we had our breakfast, and even cheaper!
The staff of Marina Piccola was rude and arrogant dealing with this situation.
Not very pleasant experience at all.
