I have experienced 3 different places to stay in Cinque Terre-2 in Riomaggiore and one in Manarola. This was THE BEST by far!! Mostly due to Enrico and Dorothy the owners. I was actually staying at a place half way down the hill and he took me and my luggage to the place. In the morning he allowed me to join in the breakfast with my friends. He parked the car for us, hauled up their suitcases, gave us a map of the town which he highligted for us, and called the boat ferry to make sure the boats were running before we went. He could not do enough for us! The terrace was lovely. The breakfast included meat, yogurt, cereal, croissant, lots of spreads, cofee, cuppocino, oj, milk etc. It is at the top of the hill accross from public parking. If you have to roll your luggage up the hill to get to it it''s better if you have luggage with 4 wheels instead of 2-that way you can push it instead of pulling. There are 2 slight landings going up the hill to rest if need be. The room was very spacious, clean, and had a tub which many do not. It was cheaper than the hotel I stayed in which I did not find as nice or accomodating. Both AC and heat worked just fine. The refridgerator was tiny but stocked. My place down the street was noisy due to location next to a bar. This place was quiet. There is a restroom right by the reception area. I cannot say enough good about this place! We are planning to return and stay for a week there! We were there September 13, 2012 and it was still pretty busy. You could tell the service people were ready for the tourists to leave so running into Enrico was an absolute breath of fresh air.
