“Outstanding rooftop location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2012

Amazing view, wonderful place to stay! Newly renovated, beautifully appointed, breathtaking view, can't think of anything that was missing, except maybe an elevator. There were a lot of stairs!

We were travelling on honeymoon and decided to stay in the Raggio di Luna apartment . We were so glad we did!
Barbara who greeted us was very welcoming and helpful. She showed us to the apartment which was just perfect for the two of us.
We opted to pay the small amount extra for use of the kitchen which was outside and up some small stairs in our courtyard. It was worth paying the extra just to do a load of washing. I had high hopes of cooking a meal but didn't get that far!
The view from the terrace and balcony was amazing.. Straight down the cliff to the sea.
When we arrived and went into our bedroom there were rose petals scattered on the bed- very cute.
The small windows had ocean views and with the windows open we could hear the sound of the waves crashing below which was lovely.
Would stay here again if we're lucky enough to go back :)

Me and my wife stayed in the 'Sapore di Sol' for 2 nights and had a wonderful stay. The room was fresh, clean, decorated tastefully and has a sensational view. It is very well located only a short stroll down-hill to the main street of Manarola where there are a number of excellent restaurants and alimentari. Barbara was extremely helpful with the booking and check-in process. Highly recommended!

This was a great spot for a few days of relaxation. The room was superb with beautiful views across the sea. We even were given some easter eggs on arrival. The room has a small fridge and a balcony where you can enjoy a drink and take in the view. It is a 2 minute walk down to the main street and less than a 5 minute stroll to the train station. Barbara the owner was super friendly and helpful. We loved this place and highly recommend it.

Our room at Alla Porta Rossa was 'Sapore di Sol'. The view was amazing. Most hotels in Italy are tiny, and this was no exception. The room was well equipped with a small fridge, coffee-making facilities, tiny easter eggs and suprisingly good toiletries. The bed was super comfortable and we slept well. The room was spotlessly clean and made up each day.

Manarola is (in my opinion) the best of the five villages to stay in. It has excellent food and has retained its charm. It's the start of the Via del Amore walk. The path to Corniglia was closed when we went, so we caught the train instead.

I'd stay here again, definitely.

We stayed in the Creme Caramel for 5 nights which gave us ample time to walk the trails, visit the towns and have a fair share of relaxing. Sitting on the deck with a good local wine and watching the sun go down over the Mediterranean is about as good as it gets. The room was large enough for the two of us and seemed to have all we required. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to come back one day.

Our tiny room was shockingly small when we first arrived. My wife and I had been to Italy several times before, so we know that European hotels can be small and short on amenities. However, there was barely enough room for us and the bed in this room! The bathroom was tiny as well, with no room for anything except the basics. The view was splendid though and thank goodness for the air conditioning. It was noisy at night, with loud Italian pop music from one of the upstairs rooms and trains rolling by at the near by station, so we used our ear plugs. The manager Barbara was very friendly. No breakfast was provided. The location was nice - just come expecting to climb alot of stairs.
