A few people noted that there weren't really any nice hotels in Cinque Terre. Totally untrue.
My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights and we really loved this romantic hotel in Riomaggiore. David, the hotel manager (who looks a little like James Franco) was super friendly, helpful and accommodating. Upon entering this gated property we were first welcomed with a nice glass of local Cinque Terre white wine, which was very good and refreshing after our 3 hour train ride from Florence. Then to the room: it was a good size, had a patio overlooking the town, a small desk, fridge mini bar, safe, fresh flowers and nice sized bathroom with an interesting cylindrical shower. Most importantly the room was very clean and looked like it had been recently updated. On he wall next to the bed was a large window with shutters the open up to a gorgeous view of the colorful town on Riomaggiore.
And breakfast? Quite and impressive spread of pastries, juices, fruits and cereal. It was included with the price of the hotel. See the pictures.
Tip: be sure to email the hotel before your arrival and David will email you directions from the train station and provide a schedule for the shuttle which will take you up to the hotel for 3 euros. Trust me it's worth it because it saves you the pain of dragging your luggage on a 10 minute walk up a very steep hill (like 30 - 40 degree steep).
Overall we had a wonderfully relaxing stay at Cinque Terre Residence. And the entire staff makes you feel welcome. I highly reccommend staying here if you're in Riomaggiore. Check out the pics.
