I can't think of a better location than this place. It is minutes (100m) from the train station with no stairs to get there and close to the tourist office and Internet spot: good public WiFi down the street for 5 euros a day. The price of the room is reasonable for Cinque Terre standards as we got a double room for 75 euros.
You do not want to stay in the business side of town where the restaurants are and where travellers are awakened early by street noise: you just need to walk back from the restaurants in 5 mn.
There is absolutely everything you need in this place and it is not by chance, as Ilda worked for years in an upscale Bed and Breakfast in Manarola and she knows what it takes to make her guests happy, including air conditioning and international channels on the TV set. The room is quiet, spotless, comfortable, well heated (in April) and on arrival we were treated with white Pinot wine and lovely biscuits.
This is not a bed and breakfast but there is complimentary packaged croissants, milk, orange juice, yoghurt, all sorts of teas, jam, butter and bottled water in the small fridge. The espresso coffee machine in the room is fantastic.
The bed is very comfortable with extra pillows and blankets and while the bathroom is small the water pressure and water temperature make for a great shower.
Gianni, the owner is very friendly; he even drove us back to the car park when we checked out in the rain with all our bags.
