NiRia
Ranked #6 of 11 Hotels in Riomaggiore
Reviewed 5 July 2013

You will not want to leave NiRia! From the moment you arrive until your departure, you will be well taken care of. The hosts- a mother and her son, make you feel at home and practically spoil you. She carried my suitcase down the stairs, make us coffee after our arrival, brought us plates for our sandwiches- all in the first few hours we were there. The view from their terrace is stunning! Our room was very nice- comfortable bed, plenty of space, clean, and lovely bathroom. It was so peaceful to stay here, and easy to take the little bus to/from Manarola, just down the hill. We enjoyed a great hike from the nearby church in Volestra to Corniglia. We had to leave before breakfast time on our departure day, and she got up early and made us a breakfast cake, and served us coffee too. NiRia was definitely the highlight of our trip. You will love the beauty of Cinque Terre and this B&B.

I stayed three nights at Niria, it was truly a wonderful experience. This is hands down one of the best places I have ever stayed in my travels. The hosts are so kind and welcoming, making this family owned B and B a comforting place to stay when you are far from home. I was able to get a ride from Mattia from the train station, as my train arrived late, as well as reservations for dinner at a nearby restaurant. Franca and Andre (the hosts) took extra care in helping me plan my hikes for the day. My room was cleaned every day and special touches (such as putting my socks on the radiator to dry) made me feel so happy and welcome! The property itself is very quiet and beautiful, my room was decorated cutely and was immaculate.

The location also makes it easy to access the other villages in the area and several hiking trails begin very close by. NiRia is especially perfect if you are looking for a quiet place to stay, away from the crowded tourist parts of the area.

I loved this place and will return if I am lucky enough to travel to Cinque Terre again in the future!

Spent 2 nights here and couldn't have been happier. We decided not to stay seaside in Manarola and took the handy shuttle bus to Volastra instead. The trip from Florence by train was manageable, -we left around 8am and arrived at NiRia around 2:30 pm.

NiRia reconfirmed our arrival by email a few days before. Our room "Poggio" was immaculate with fresh paint, gorgeous bath, and nicely decorated.

Breakfast was way beyond our expectations- ocean view outdoor seating with linens and silver- freshly baked crostata and foccacia. The breakfast area overlooks the owners' lovely herb and vegetable garden.

We received the kindest and most gracious service during our stay- we will definitely be back!

The previous reviewers have summed up our experience perfectly. A warm welcome and pick up in Manarola from Mattia helped us feel at home. The rooms are nice (ask for il Marre) and beds are god. Lots of info on places to eat and hikes is available. Terrace and garden have older full view of the sea. Feels very comfortable and lots of good choices at breakfast. Perfect quiet spot to relax and access the hiking trails.
Grazie!

Room Tip: Ask for il Marre

We stayed at NiRia for 3 nights and we were so glad we chose this friendly B&B in the quiet village of Volastra. Our hostess couldn't do enough to make our stay very comfortable. The accommodation was exceptionally clean and well appointed. The bed was comfortable and there was a kitchen and fridge which we could use. We started all our walks from this village and caught the bus up from Manarola each afternoon (E1.50 and worth every cent!). The damp smell that others refer to we found is characteristic of the Cinque Terre Villages and did not affect our enjoyment of NiRia. Highlights: sunsets from the terrace, extra espressos offered by our hosts, the "doggie bags" supplied for all the home baked treats we couldn't finish at breakfast and the wonderful warm smiles of our hostess.

If you like fresh, homemade cakes for breakfast, this is the place for you. In fine weather, service is on an airy terrace, with fine views of the sea, 1000' below. Coffee is excellent, and plentiful, accompanied by the smiling faces of your hosts. Spare food may be packed into the poly bag provided. You have access to the impeccably cleaned rooms throughout the day, the village is near to the beautiful hillside trails, and the nearby takeaway, but sit-in restaurant, (not the one where you can get a discount), provides home-cooked Italian food, served by locals.

Franca, Andrea & Mattia all work hard to ensure your visit to the Cinque Terre is great. Franca makes yummy homemade pastries and fantastic cappuccino for breakfast. Mattia speaks good english and is very helpful. The rooms were very clean and the bathrooms are new and in perfect working condition. The new little restaurant in Volastra, arcobaleno is very good and modestly priced. If you come home later than the last bus, Mattia doesn't mind picking you up in Manarola with a little advance notice. We had no problem with their method of reservation: send a credit card number in parts to 2 different email addresses. Overall a very good value with warm Italian hospitality.
