We stayed here for two nights at the beginning of August. I struggled to find accommodation in Cinque Terre generally at the time of booking because of it being peak season. I therefore did not arrive at Anita with the highest expectations.
Upon arrival, we were greeted by an Italian man who spoke very little English. He showed us to an apartment which was about a five minute walk from the main building. We had not expected to be in an apartment. The apartment had no air conditioning and the fridge was turned off and contained some out of date bacon which was not pleasant. We were told at check in that we may have to change rooms on our second night.
Breakfast was ok and was better on the second morning. The fresh coffee was great and there was a selection of some fruit, bread, croissants cereal and boiled eggs.
After breakfast on our first day, we were told by Anita that we needed to move rooms. This was annoying as we had to pack everything and move to a different building again, even further from where we first we. The second room however was much better than the first, with air conditioning and a clean light room with a nice bathroom. We also had a great see view. If we had been put in this room to start with, my impression of this accommodation would have been much better,
This accommodation comprises a number of different rooms and apartments which Anita rents out from other people. Therefore, the accommodation is dotted all over town. One positive is that the main desk for check in is only 5 minutes walk from the train station.
Whilst staying here, we did the hike to the other 4 villages which was absolutely stunning, although a bit of a physical challenge - take lots of water!
Monterosso and Cinque Terre are amazing and I would strongly recommend a visit. However, I would look at other accommodation over this. Also, during our stay in 5 places in Italy, this was by far the worst accommodation we stayed in yet the most expensive!
