It was a fantastic experience dealing with Enrica Basso. We visited her property in September and couldn't ask for more. Although the rooms were quite basic, all the basic amenities were in place and the place was centrally located in Vernazza, just a hundred metres from the Vernazza railway station and right in the middle of the action on the main street. For the incredibly low fare Enrica charged us, this was a very nice value-for-money stay at Cinque Terre and I would wholeheartedly recommend memo's room to anyone considering staying here. One can't really fault that the accommodation was basic because most of the times we would be out exploring Cinque Terre and what its 5 towns have to offer. Perhaps the only grouse with Memo's room is they have no elevator, so if you are an international tourist with a wee bit of luggage, be prepared to lug your heavy luggage 2 storeys up and down :) This will be the case with most houses in Cinque Terre, so cannot really call it a flaw, just something you should be prepared for :)
Enrica was very professional and helpful, guiding me all the way from Bologna after we had made a mistaken booking on the train route. Full marks to her for her help.
