Inn Giovanni Rooms - Manarola, Riomaggiore

1 star Inn Riomaggiore

Via Ettore Cozzani 22 Manarola - Riomaggiore

Price starting from 155.00

Located in the historical center of Manarola, Giovanni Rooms is perfectly placed in the town's main plaza, just steps away from the historic church. With superb views of the surrounding vineyards, hills, the sea, and Manarola's colorful houses, Giovanni Rooms is an ideal Cinque Terre destination.

Amenities include free wireless Internet access and a welcoming hallway with a crystal table, large mirror, satellite TV, and sofa. A refrigerator is located in the main hall, as well as coffee/tea facilities and satellite TV. Rooms include 2 double bedrooms, a complete kitchen, and a bathroom with shower and hair dryer.

The property also features 2 balconies on either side of the house. The smaller one offers overwhelming views of the town, the sea, and the surrounding hills. The larger rear balcony is where guests can enjoy breakfast or dinner while watching the sun set over the vineyards and people passing along the trails to Corniglia.

Manarola, pretty famous by itself, becomes more famous during the Christmas period, due to a large nativity scene that an old fisherman of the village built in a big field on the hill. From Giovanni Rooms, guests will have a privileged view of this nativity scene with brightly lit, evangelic figures standing tall in the Manarola night.

The marina of Manarola is within walking distance, while the central church plaza is a tranquil place to enjoy the beauty of the town and the grand scenic views.

Upon advance request, Giovanni Rooms can organize transfers to nearby cities and the airport. For guests wanting to reach Manarola from La Spezia without a train, a coastal road transfer is available via Litoranea.

We stayed in several B&Bs during our 11 days in Italy. This one cost the most, and was the worst. There is NO air conditioning despite what the advertising says. There were ants everywhere. Only 2 rolls of toilet paper and 4 paper thin towels were provided for 3 people 3 days.

Giovanni called us to arrange arrival, there was a note on the door and keys in the rooms(Manarola is a sleepy town). The rooms were brand new, excellently furnished with high quality lighting, plumbing fixtures, and furniture. It was very small, but the space was well used. It had a beautiful view overlooking Manarola and the sea. It was a hike up to the main square at the top of the hill, but the view was the better for it. We admittedly had a lot of stuff but it was a hike up there, not for the faint of heart. There was no elevator but we were only 1 floor up, not too bad. We requested a crib in advance and it was provided for us.

Stayed at Manarola with myself and 3 friends for 2 nights. Wished we had booked for three. Giovanni was there to meet us and assist with our luggage. The apartment is up 33 steep stairs and of course we had "over packed"! We were on our own getting it back down but that was accomplished fairly easily. The view from the room is absolutely breath taking. The kitchen was well equipped and the bedrooms roomy. We even had maid service which we did not expect. There is a bell tower near by that rings 7 times at 7 am and then another 33 times so if you get testy with this kind of noise that would be the only reason not to stay. We all thought it added to our stay. Even the steep uphill climb to the apt location is well worth it! Would definitely stay there again!

We enjoyed our stay at Giovanni's rooms--it was well worth the hike to the top of the hill! As this is not a hotel but rather flats in an apartment building be prepared to be flexible. Our guest room had been recently renovated with new state of the art bath room. The furnishings were simple, but stylish and clean. The view from our room was lovely!

This was a fantastic place that exceeded expectations. Giovonni was very welcoming, although we almost missed him because we didn't have email giving us last minute instructions on how to meet. The view is spectacular, the town wonderful with great stores and markets. We were here two days, and ended up preparing most of meals at room. It had everything we needed. Cleanliness was exceptional. I have no complaints and would highly recommend. Its hilly and has many stairs, so would be difficult for people with limited mobility. Most people should be able to handle
