This place was great. Arrived in Riomaggiore with no accommodation booked (true backpacker style!), saw this place as we walked up the main street and asked them for a room. It was beautifully designed, big and in a great location. We also got wifi in our room. The best part would have to be our balcony, looked like the only room with one though, each afternoon we would sit outside drinking a glass of wine watching the village below us!

Room Tip: We stayed in number 114, apartment 2 - make sure you get this room for the fantastic balcony!

I found n booked this room from hostelworld.com. We stayed here for 2 nights for explore cinque terre. i love the simple design of the room, was clean, huge enough, especially the bath room! Our room is just located at left of the Riomaggiore main street. Near to all shops n restaurant but not noisy at night. If u come with a big luggage, this location very suit for u, is really near to the train station, about 5-8mins walk. The staff was very very friendly n helpful,v facing the train delay problem, but he is still there waiting us to check in even the office was close. Highly recommend!

We stayed two nights at La Dolce Vita, and it was perfect. Before arriving I had no idea that the room was at Riomaggiore main street, so it was a great surprise for me. Our room was great, huge, very clean and with a big balcony facing the street. it was really good having breakfast and dinner while watching the people going up and down Riomaggiore.
It is really different the way you fell the town if you stay in such a place or when you come for a day visit.
I really recommend staying here!

This family is incredible. They are helpful, warm, and kind. They even made us a coffee one night. Our room in particular was very, very high up- 114 stairs to be exact- so it is not for the short-winded. But the view was worth every step. We stayed for 6 nights and had a fridge to keep our groceries in. There is not any ac but the breeze from the ocean with an open window kept it pretty cool. We also had a private bathroom. All for only €50 a night. The location was perfect, too. It's on the main street and close to the train and the beach. I will definitely be revisiting...or at least sending them a Christmas card. Awesome place!

We stayed in La Dolce Vita for 2 nights as we explored Cinque Terre. We couldn't have been happier with our stay - our room was located right on the main street with a view of downtown Riomaggiore, and was very clean, spacious, quiet, recently renovated, and well decorated. Small fridge in the room to keep a few things cold if you needed to. The rooms at La Dolce Vita are scattered throughout town, and the central office is located on the main street of Riomaggiore, only a short 5-min walk from the train station. WiFi is only available in the area directly around the office, but that didn't bother us at all. Staff is very friendly, helpful, and accommodating. Would definitely stay here again!
