They have many different apartments, pictures when booking seem to show the combination of the best elements of them all, but don't expect to find it all in your apartment. We had an apartment on the 1st floor, Via Belvedere 215, absolutely astonishing view, unfortunately one of the big windows with shades was broken and could not be opened, so...

We travelled throughout Italy for 2 weeks in June and Arpaiu was our last stop. We were greeted by a woman over an intercom, whom I assume was the inn keeper, but we never actually met her. For that matter, we did not see a single person during our stay. We were buzzed in, told to leave our money on...

Absolutely wonderful view, great location and adequate services. The host was friendly and accommodating. The apartment could do with some work and the furnishings could be refreshed. You would then expect to pay more but that would be more fitting for its location. Some attention to detail is also required in the cleaning.

This place is all about the location. Fantastic views! A bit of a climb from the train station but well worth it. The Mia room has the best views. I would stay here again if I go back to the Cinque Terre.

Highlight of our Italian two vacation, was spending two night in Manarola at Arpaiu. It sits right on the cliff of the harbor. Fresh ocean air for the lungs and soul. Windows open out on to the ocean. Slept with Windows wide open. Comfortable beds. Best night sleep! Enjoy the view sitting upstairs on community balcony. Each room has a...

Stayed here with my family for two nights in the middle of October 2016. The weather was absolutely perfect during our stay and the views from our open bedroom windows and the huge deck had to be the best views in the entire country. We ended up having 3 of the 4 rooms during our stay and were able to...

This is our 2nd visit to Arpaiu, returning to the Mea room for the sound and view of the sea. We had the common outdoor terrace to urselves (3 lounge chairs, 3 tables for 2). Our nightly rate of €100/night could not be beat! This is a clean but basic "room for rent" place, no breakfast, extra charge for change...

We stayed for 3 nights in Manarola and Arpaiu was the perfect spot for us. The room and ensuite were large and spotlessly clean. The view from our bedroom window was breathtaking. We also had use of a communal sitting area and deck that we made use of on numerous occasions. Highly recommended.

Absolutely stunning views from a fantastic Seaview room. A perfect spot for a getaway in Cinque Terre. With very clean and modern furnishings it is a gem. The website had easy to follow directions after a short train ride from La Spezia. Just purchase a €4 train ticket from the tabbacco shop will get you there. Depending on how long...
