Steep climb, beautiful view!”

The spectacular view from the patio made the steep climb to get there worthwhile. Our host was unable to secure a porter for our bags when we arrived, so graciously assisted us himself and prearranged a porter for our departure.
Curtains where the main bed was were thin and let all outside light in - blackout curtains or shades in that area would be a nice addition.

Riomaggiore magic”

Excellent location, with a generous terrace overlooking the street and port. The facilities were better than we were expecting, the photos do not do the apartment justice. The little kitchen was great!
We loved everything. The steps are nuts and getting into the apartment was like a rabbit warren. We were challenged by our very large and heavy cases, because this was a small part of a month-long trip, so unavoidable, but a bit difficult. It is no fault of the accommodation and all part of the charm. We knew it would be tricky!

Disappointing”

location and view
there wasn’t a stable hot water stream in the shower, it went on and off. the apartment was dirty, hair in the shower and dusty floor. we had only one toilet paper roll and asked for another one, the owner brought only the day after. he didn’t make up our bad or changed the towels, just took the garbage. the internet is very bad and kept disconnecting. I don’t recommend staying there.

Perfect location in a perfect village, straight out of Disney's 'Luca' without the sea monsters.”

The view from the room was unbelievable; right over the harbour. We could not have asked for better. Our host Roberto did everything he could to make our experience a good one, including adjusting his schedule to meet us when we had delayed and missed trains. The room was on two floors with a double bed on one floor and a surprisingly comfortable pull-out sofa bed on the other. We've marked the location of the flat in red in the attached photos. One of the photos also shows the path up to the flat.
Very minor thing - no curtains on the bedroom window. We used a bedspread to block the morning light. You can see the bedspread in one of the photos from the outside :-) There are also MANY, MANY steps all through Cinque Terre. This is not a criticism of the flat at all, it's just that travelers need to be prepared. There are probably about 100 steps between the train station and the flat. If you have mobility issues or only have a massive suitcase, maybe consider somewhere flatter.

the excellent location (apart from all the steps you need to carry your luggage up and down, but it was worth it once we got there) and the large terrace overlooking the sea and town below

Beautiful Views, beautiful city.”

Were were met in town by the ferry, our host was friendly and gracious. Everything was as expected and the views were magnificent. We couldn't have been closer to the see. The room was small, about the size of a standard hotel room, the bathroom was a decent size and the balcony was sufficiently large enough to lounge. The balcony faces north, so while you don't get the sunset view, you are able to sit out on the balcony into the evening.
The Stairs. Now while I say this - if you are coming to Riomaggiore you are going to do stairs. The question isn't so much if, it is more "how many". We stayed (two couples) in two different locations in Riomaggiore and this location had the least amount of stairs for a penthouse apartment. Do not bring large luggage. Not only are there stairs, they are not easily done with even small bags. We re-packed into backpacks and a small portable duffle we brought and that was very helpful. I saw some people struggling through the streets with their large wheeled and small wheeled carry-ons. If you are not prepared to hump your bags up four or five flights of stairs or more - don't bring them. From the boat you are looking at 3 or flights of stairs up and then back down to get to the port. You then have 3 flights up to get to the house. Then inside you have 2 tight flights up to your room. From the Train, you are a 5 minute walk (depending on where you are coming from - you might have 2 flights of stairs to go over the train tracks). Then 4 flights of stairs down to the port - then up. There is also a route from the train station along the coast which has many more stairs for the adventure seekers.

A dream come true!”

this is the best location possible in Riomaggiore, right next the sea. If you don’t feel like going out for dinner, you can buy local products and wine in near by stores and have dinner on the balcony, and you’ll still be able to feel the great vibe this place has. The apartment is walking distance from the train station, and the amazing host Roberto will pick you up there (you can’t really find the entrance to the apartment if it’s your first time there). I would definitely (and probably will) stay there in the future.
Not much to say here, but my suggestion would be adding a coffee machine and some small device to heat up food, as you do feel tempted to have dinner on the balcony.

Cinque Terre was atmospheric, colourful, wonderful.”

The location was wonderful: right by, and overlooking, the little port. The apartment had two levels with a balcony on which we could dine while watching the sunset. Being right by the sea meant that you could hear the waves at night once the dining crowds below had quietened. It had all the right atmosphere.
Getting to the apartment was a bit tough if you've got large luggage because of the steps up but the host was kind enough to arrange for a porter when we departed.
