We stayed here for 4 nights recently and it was pretty good.
The room and bathroom are large, comfy and spotlessly clean, but the walls are paper thin and you can hear everything that is going on in the room next to you, I suffered 3 nights of the man next door loudly snoring all night and when he wasn't snoring he was in the loo making all sorts of unpleasant sounds.
Breakfast was pleasant with a variety of choices except the coffee which was so strong it could have stopped your heart.
Antonella and her husband Guiseppie were pleasant people.
There were a few negatives (1) No tea/coffee making faciliies in the room. (2) This place also doubles as a local bar and the locals use it a lot and they tend to be very noisy and they stop talking and stare at you when you walk into the room making one feel really uncomfortable, on the last morning there were a couple of young lads making a lot of noise and being very silly, with burping and other noises. With the locals walking in and out at all hours it's impossilble to have sleep in or have a nice quite breakfast. (3) The floors are tiled and you can hear every clank and clunk, plus the cleaners started whirling away with their vacumn cleaners very early. (4) On the last morning Antonella was not on breakfast duty and the woman who was only offered xsants to the Italian guest which made us feel really uncomfortable and unwanted.
As I said this place was comfy and spotlessly clean,but a bit pricey for it's location. I wouldn't stay here again as it is too far away from all the action and the bus stops running at 1945, so you can't do anything. Also watch out as one of the bus driver is a very rude, obnoxious, unpleasant man who yelled at us when we got on the bus early in Manarola.
