We decided to stay at Riomaggiore - in fact it doesn't matter which town you pick because you are going to walk around them all and the trains are frequent and quick and cheap
wherever you stay you need to be by the coast / railway rather than up in the hills (which are too far to walk, and having a car at 5Tere is a bad idea - parking is difficult, driving is not great, it's just not designed for cars)
Great view from our apartment! Right over the harbour.
Small balcony had room for 2 people, and that fab view - morning sun not evening sun
You can sit at the harbour in evening if you want more sun
we were literally one minute from the main street, but it was high enough to be quiet, but you can hear the sea during the night - nice!
One star docked for the cheap fittings, it felt generally plasticky, (typical Italy really), only one wine glass (though we probably could have asked at their office on the high street)
but there was a cooker and fridge
Proper double bed rather than two singles pushed together - important when you're on holiday!
You have to pay in cash, but you can do this at any point during your stay
Hot water and electricity unlimited, charging of iphones etc all fine
No wifi for internet but there was a cafe jsut up the street we used where it was free
Overall good value for 90 Euros a night for the two of us
