We have just enjoyed a two night stay in this fabulous accommodation. It was clean, roomy and of a high standard. Tea and coffee facilities provided, with welcomed, efficient air conditioning. The location was fabulous with the town of Manarola at your doorstep. The attention and service provided by Simone was exceptional from booking restaurants, suggesting walks and activities, nothing was a problem. He even went out of his way to post some forgotten keys onto us which got us out of a very awkward situation. Nothing was too much trouble. I recommend Afficatamere San Giorgio and Manarola as a perfect place to stay and would return in a heartbeat. I would also highly recommend a sunset drink at Simone's bar, Nessun Dorma where I took my absolute favourite photo.

This review applies to Giorgio 2, the apartment for rent through Affittacamera San Giorgio starting Spring 2014. We stayed three nights in July 2014, and our lodging played a major role in how much we enjoyed our Cinque Terre experience -- of our eight destinations in Italy, Manarola was my favorite!

The apartment itself is very comfortable for two -- ample queen-size bed and spacious closets in the bedroom, a balcony equipped with a table and chairs, a practically-equipped kitchen, and even a loft area with a small bed, which could serve as additional lodging, primarily suited for kids. We liked that the (free) WiFi was fast.

But the real charm of Giorgio 2 is its location. Its perch above the single thoroughfare that winds down through Manarola provides fabulous views from its balcony, in one direction the quaint harbor and views of the Mediterranean along the Cinque Terre coast, and in the other direction the higher reaches of the village and its surrounding vineyards and olive groves. During our stay the balcony afforded a view of the sunset over the Mediterranean, but this will depend on the time of year you visit.

Customer service was fabulous: Simone arranged for his assistant Clara to meet us promptly at Piazza Papa Innocenzo IV (at S. Lorenzo church), where we unloaded our luggage, and she escorted us to the apartment, even helping lug our bags. Be prepared to handle your own luggage to reach the apartment, but then that seems to be the rule for all lodging in Manarola.

Considering the fabulous views, we felt like we got good value for the price. I also liked that we could pay with credit card. Most other apartment rentals in Manarola require payment in cash, which is a potential hassle, given that the one and only ATM in the village was out of service the entire three days we were there. Note that guests are responsible for their own breakfast, but it's a short walk to reach multiple breakfast establishments on the main thoroughfare.

My only recommendation might be to bring your own pillow if you are particular about pillow firmness. We each had a pillow that was overly stuffed, so sleeping was less comfortable than it could have been (although being able to hear waves break throughout the night makes up for a lot of imperfections!). I suggested to Simone to provide a choice of pillows -- not sure if he will follow up on that advice.

A newly renovated place, and the room was perfect, nice and clean. And the location in top! just a few minutes from the Water.
Simone, the manager, was really serviceminded and helpful.
He also has a small bar with a beautiful view of Manarola - perfect place for sunset drinks.

Room Tip: view of the street Or choose San Giorgio 1, which is a small Apartment a bit higher up, but with a...

We stayed in Cinque Terre for 3 nights, and made one of the best decisions to use Manarola as a base. San Giorgio is in an extremely convenient location as it is just outside the tunnel from the train station. Simone and Clara were both friendly and excellent in providing us with tips on what to do in Manarola and around Cinque Terre as well.

A few points:
- Whilst you do not have to worry about lugging your bags up any hilly terrain, note, however, that the B&B and rooms are up a few flights of stairs.
- There is no breakfast included in the stay, but there is a cafe right next door where you can enjoy a discount if you're staying in San Giorgio.
- The rooms are basic, but are very comfortable and clean. There is only shower gel provided, so if you're particular about hair upkeep, make sure to bring your own shampoo and conditioner.
- Make sure to check out the Gelateria 5Terre for THE best gelato (it's only a few shops away from the B&B) and head out to Nessun Dorma for AMAZING cocktails and smashing views of the iconic Manarola skyline.

We stayed 4 nights in the top floor suite with the huge view deck - everything was first class. The location is just outside the tunnel from the train station - no steps or hills to climb. Downstairs is a grocery with everything you need. This suite was set up with a kettle, toaster, small fridge etc. so you could have breakfast in or wine and cheese later. There were two air conditioners - one for the bedroom and one for the living room with the hide-a-bed couch which is king-size and extremely comfortable. Three doors up is the best homemade ice cream and you are very close to lots of great seafood restaurants. The management was terrific - even calling Venice for us to see about a lost stuffed dog. It was a real treat to stay here!

Room Tip: The top floor suite was more money but well worth it.

This is an excellent place to stay, with extraordinarily helpful staff and the perfect location (right in the middle of town, but before you have to drag your bags up the hill). The rooms are spacious, modern and clean. There is no breakfast, but that was made clear before we booked and there were plenty of breakfast options in town

Spent two nights in this very centrally located accommodation. As you come through tunnel from train it is to the right of café and shop in front of you. No need to walk up steep path to other places. Rooms modern, comfortable and clean. Tea and coffee in room.Fridge provided. Breakfast at café next door (discount if staying at guesthouse). Lovely place to sit and watch world go by. Nice little shops and post office up the street and more shops down towards the water.
Very nice helpful hosts. Many nearby restaurants and cafes. A short walk to the water and wonderful view. Walk to the top of the town for views. We had balcony in room 105.
We had three flight of stairs- no lift provided!
