Had wonderful view from our 3rd floor window. The staff most helpful with recommendations for good restaurants and maps. Proximity to railway station was excellent.
The shower was a bit small.
Easy access to the station and a good breakfast
Limited tv options
The purpose of our stay here - easy access to Cinque de Terre - was fully served. The hotel was well situated, and the staff helpful. the breakfast was very nice - wide variety.
There was some ambiguity about what was included in the breakfast, and what one had to pay extra for, if anything.
