Hopefully an aberationPosted Oct 10, 2014 on Hotels.com
Can't remember name of room, but on first floor on the left. Nice room with a nice view of the town. Bed was comfortable. BUT the reek coming from the bathroom could be absolutely overpowering. The shower leaked, pooling water near the toilet; the sink took forever to drain. Left a note about it when we left and haven't heard anything although it's been a week. There is no one on premises at all--even at check in you press a button that is connected to the owner's cell phone and he buzzes you into the building remotely. Plus, payment is in cash that you leave in an envelope in the room when you leave. Frankly, I think this is fine, but with the bathroom situation it would've been nice to have someone around to ask about it. And promised free bottled water never materialized.

A taste of Chinque TerraPosted Sep 16, 2014 on Hotels.com
Touring many of the sites of Italy. Heard that Cinque Terra was a must see. That proved to be a fact. Spent some time in Manarola. Giovanni Rooms are located high in the city near the church. The view of the town and ocean did not disappoint. Emails from the owner made the rooms easy to find as did his meeting us in the church yard. Clean well maintained and comfortable it was a great place - near a nice local bistro for dinner and or lunch. Would stay there again in the future.

Désagréments: Paiement en cash seulement :(Posted May 3, 2014 on Hotels.com
Bel appart fonctionnel et très bien situé avec une très belle vue. Point très désagréable et irritant: Ne pas savoir à l'avance que le paiement doit se faire EN ARGENT COMPTANT SEULEMENT et constaté sur les lieux que les Guichets Automatiques Banco Agricole ne fonctionnent pas pour les gens du Canada. Ce sont les seuls guichets retrouvés au Cinque Terre. Vu les complications, nous avons contacté le proprio par courriel pour prendre arrangements et payer par Visa mais il a refusé catégoriquement en nous faisant croire que ma carte Visa ne fonctionnait pas !!! ... ( ma carte VISA était fonctionnelle et je l'ai utilisé pendant les 3 semaines de mon voyage en Italie - SANS PROBLEMES)... !!! Prendre note que nous n'avons jamais rencontré le proprio en personne durant nos 3 nuits. Il nous a écrit que de toute facon, la méthode de paiement était cash et qu'il nous laissait jusqu'au check-out pour essayer d'autres guichets et laisser l'argent dans la chambre à notre départ au check-out (autrement dit: se débrouiller pour trouver l'argent... ) Je n'ai pas apprécié ce fonctionnement qui m'a stressé et m'a causé des frais supplémentaires (intérêts quotidiens) car j'ai du faire des retraits d'argent (avance de fonds) sur ma carte de crédit. Autres points négatifs: Notre chambre n'avait pas de rideaux le premier soir et notre cafetière ne fonctionnait pas mais ceci a été réglé pour nos 2 autres nuits, avec une note à la femme de chambre. Merci.

Perfect room in Cinque TerrePosted Apr 17, 2014
Pros: We liked Manarola, the smallest of the towns, and the fact that our hotel was near the top of the hill, away from the hustle and bustle of tourists.
Cons: We did not have any soap at the start, and only one roll of t.p., but both probs were easily remedied.
Location: Hiking. Browsing shops. Trains to other 4 villages. Good food.
Giovanni was easy to reach by phone, and very responsive. He fixed a shower leak promptly. He spoke good english, gave good directions, and was knowledgable about the area. The view from our window looked down through he town toward the marina, and everything was in walking distance. The head of the Lavostra trail from Manarola to Corniglia started just across the street. It was a challenging walk for us (we're in our 50's), but well worth the beautiful views. The whole area is really a magical place.

Modernité et lieu préservéPosted Feb 19, 2014
Une très belle vue sur un village pittoresque. Chambre confortable et bien équipée (beaucoup de prises de courant bien placées, climatisation réversible). Le village étant interdit aux voitures et très en pente, le parking est loin et nécessite une marche pour transporter les bagages. Prévoir des bagages légers et avec des roulettes.

beautiful room overlooking the water!Posted Oct 30, 2013
Pros: Everything was new and our room overlooked the water
Cons: communication with the owner. Luckily I had an international calling plan so I could let me know that we had arrived.
Location: hike, swim, shop, EAT!!!
What a lovely place to stay! Manarola is small and there weren't a lot of options as it really is a residential town. The owner met us when we got there and took us up to our newly renovated room. Our window overlooked the street on route to the water as well as the water. It was GREAT! We could see all the pastel buildings and the crystal blue water! Everything was new in the room and bathroom. Just know ahead of time that you must pay in cash- they don't take credit cards. There is an ATM in town if you need one as many of the vendors there only take cash. Of course the town is simply beautiful. My husband and I walked up a hill and watched the sun set over the water and the sky turned MAGNIFICENT colors. Anyway, I would highly recommend this little inn!

Fabulous Room with a ViewPosted Sep 11, 2013 on Hotels.com
We stayed at Giovanni Rooms at the end of August and couldn't have chosen a better place. It's located in Manarola which was one of my favourite villages in Cinque Terre. The view was absolutely breathtaking. Yes, you do have to walk up a very steep hill and some stairs to get to the apartment but once you're there it's worth it. Giovanni was extremely helpful and met us as soon as we arrived. He carried out luggage up for us which was great as the room is at the top of some steep stairs. The room itself was very clean and had a comfortable bed. It looks like it has been recently redone as all the facilities are fairly new. There is wifi and a fridge available, as well as a kettle for making coffee and some wine glasses. The only downside for the whole weekend was the number of ants, however there was a cleaner who came every day who got rid of them for us. Giovanni also very kindly kept our bags for us on the last day as we were only leaving later in the afternoon. If we ever come back to Cinque Terre I'll definitely stay here and recommend it to all my friends.

Fantastic location, but...Posted Jul 9, 2013
Pros: fantastic location: Manarola in Cinque Terre Internet OK
Cons: could have used curtains on windows Got a call: put cash on the bed when leaving. However, with some negotiation, able to leave credit card to pay.
Location: Walk the whole area at different times of day with camera in hand. Stunning
Significant hike down to hotel from legal parking in this beautiful seaside town. A few problems with keys. Modern room and bath; third floor walkup.

다른 것은 어느정도 만족한데 위치를 찾기가 어려웠다. 골목 안에 있어서 하숙집 찾는 느낌. 낮에 숙소에 도착하면 문제가 없으나 밤에는 주위의 도움 없이 숙소를 찾기는 거의 불가능함. 조식 포함되어 있지 않음.
