B&B “alla porta rossa “

“Alla Porta Rossa (At the Red Gate) is a green-designed
group of apartments and rooms in Manarola, one of the
magic villages of the Cinque Terre (the five havens)
in the heart of the National Park.

Come, relax and have a wonderful time living right on the sea
with all your daily comforts.

Alla Porta Rossa offers lovely rooms and apartments for your holidays in the sun at The Cinque Terre.”


Bed and Breakfast “da Baranin”

“We provide Bed and Breakfast accommodation in Manarola, in apartments and rooms with private bathroom and TV-sat, more we rent a big rubber boat (7 meters) for cruises along the coast of “5 Terre Sea Reserve” with guide.”

I have stayed there myself, and recommend it!

We rented an apartment at Da Baranin in Manarola. The accommodations themselves were beautiful — clean, streamlined, convenient. Andrea Somovigo, our host, was unobtrusive, very friendly (and put up with my bad Italian) and really helpful in telling us how to find trailheads. He was the best possible host. The view from our balcony and windows was spectacular with the sea in the distance and the bird-filled vineyards and olive groves.

“I was in Cinque Terre in June 2000, and stayed for four amazing days at La Torretta in Manarola. Gabriele, the proprietor, was incredibly sweet and helpful, and the place was clean, though not luxurious (but very affordable for my double room with private bath).

Definitely book in advance, since he is usually full. The email is Kimberly


“We stayed here for 4 nights at ‘La Torretta’ hotel which is an excellent hotel with fantastic views from all rooms. The hotel is about a 5minute walk up the village from the harbor and is situated next to the top Piazza with the main bell tower in it.

All rooms are very well furnished in a modern way but with furniture in keeping with the area. The staff are extremely helpful and speak good English.

We paid 68 Euros per night for a double with our own bathroom outside of the room which was also extremely clean and very well maintained.

If the budget permits, get a 90 euro double room as they have an even better view with their own bathroom.
Would recommend the hotel to anyone but if you think you can roll up and ask for a room this wont happen as they are booked for weeks in advance ( was there June 8th – June 11th ) We saw a lot of disappointed backpackers over the 4 days, so get in fast.”

Paul Sullivan wrote in 1998:

I went [to the Ostello “5 Terre”] on a night when I was exhausted, and they provided a very generous room for four, with its own large, first-class bathroom. I had a great sleep, all the facilities (and the view) were fine, but the rules and the competition to get in made it less attractive [for backpackers] than Mamma Rosa’s.

During colder weather it might have the edge, though.

Since they turned people away every day, it was a good place to find partners to share apartments.
