We stayed in the apartment. Spotlessly clean and had all facilities you would want including air conditioning for the searing heat. Unbelievably picturesque view from balcony. Homemade limoncello and canolis were among the extras delivered by our hosts, delicious. Good base for touring Cinque terre, the ferry and train are very near the apartment. Follow tripadvisor directions, Big enough for two for short stay. The website photos don't do this justice,

Wow this place lived up to and beyond our expectations. Paolo could not have been more helpful and the room is fabulous. View is astounding such an amazing place.we had to move from other accommodation and Paolo came and helped my husband with the bags. Lovely bottle of limoncello complimentary. Just be aware you do have to be fit to stay in rio Maggiore.

All I can do is add to all the other comments... yes it's a little bit hard to find but and you have to negotiate a few stairs but it's really worth the effort. A clean comfortable room, a fantastic view and wonderful hosts.

Impossible to find, but once you do it was fantastic. The apartment is in the middle of all those postcard pictures of vertical apartments on the cliffs. Cars not allowed in the village down to the harbor. There is a gate before you descend into town. At the gate get a pass to park in the parking garage. Now you walk down the steep cobblestone street to the small harbor. The only way I found the apartment was from a picture on Trip Advisor with an arrow in the picture pointing to the apartment. I went to the harbor and looked back for the location, and the arrow was right. Knock on the door. No one will answer. Walk up the stairs to the next apartment. An older woman who speaks no English, and yelled a lot in Italian answered the door. Little in the way of communication until she went and got an Excel Spreadsheet that had my name listed. A lot of smiles and yelling and she gave me the key. Nice apartment. Balcony was fantastic. Overlooked the sea and the harbor. Postcard pictures. Many of the streets are actually near vertical stone stairways. A grocer at the local grocery gave us ideas for cooking dinner in the apartment that night. Paulo came by late that evening to collect the room rent. All rather unusual, but it was an apartment, not a hotel or B&B. Unusual but completely fun stay.

Room Tip: Have the address on paper and stop at a restaurant at the harbor for directions. Apartment is up the...

We stayed in the room from June 14-16 and while we were slightly apprehensive the room turned out to be perfect and more then met our expectations. With the wonderful windows and location, we were really spoiled, it felt slightly removed from all the tourists but only a 5 minute walk to the main shops. The room many amenities such as AC, A clothesline, a fridge, etc... We can't imagine going back and not staying there. My husband and I have both travelled and were worried that this might have been too good to be true but it was great! Paolo was wonderful and gave us some home made limoncello and wine as well as a lemon tart. We would go back anytime and suggest it to all our friends.

Room Tip: No fitness centre but could not remove it.

After reading all the reviews on the apartment and the room, we decided to book both, for a couple and a single travelling together. We were not disappointed! The location, the rooms and the hosts were all just fantastic! Directly on the water, with a wonderful view over the ocean. Paulo couldn't have been more welcoming, helpful and friendly. The home baked lemon tart, still warm from the oven, was just amazing! As well as the tart, there was complimentary homemade Limoncello and wine. I would recommend La Scogliera very highly to anyone thinking of staying in Riomaggiore. If it's free, just book it, don't bother looking anywhere else!

A small narrow house and we had the two rooms on top of each other in this gem of a place. Great view over the harbour and best restaurant in Riomaggiore (book outside)
Really authentic and good value, and your own fridge with complementary wather is better than a hotel breakfast. Stayed only one night. Would have made a couple more.
Only drawback : Dangerous to swim in the sea due to rocks. Not chold friendly.
NB: No Air Condition, but good, though noisy fans. The italians build nice cold rooms, but in the hot season it is a shame that there are no AC in ths wonderful charming small hotel. We loved it anyway and the suroundings was also great. Romantic city, the best of the five !
