My wife and I traveled with two other couples in Oct. 2010 and La Baia was one of many highlights of our trip. We called Maristella when we arrived and she quickly came over to let us into our rooms and provide us with info and tips on the town and the area. The rooms are clean and efficient, not really old or quaintly charming like you might expect from the building itself, but the balconies provide beautiful views of the town and the sea. Some rooms were smaller but the Marco Polo suite was large enough for six of us to gather and enjoy snacks and drinks on the balcony. Be aware that you will have to walk a ways with luggage (the elevator was out when we arrived) but the walkway overlooks the sea so how bad can it be? This isn't really a hotel but actually the home where Maristella was born split up into rooms and suites. So there's no front desk or manager on site. Riomaggiore is a great base for seeing the Cinque Terre but if you want a regular hotel just steps from the train or a beach you may prefer Montorosso.
