Baia is one of only hotels in the Cinque Terre right across from beach with tables beachside for drinks. Parking is diagonally across street which allows you to drop off luggage fairly close without lugging it a few blocks. This is huge!! Train station is a few doors down which is wonderful for getting around the Cinque Terre. Hotel itself is clean and many rooms have views. Our room looked to the side and was large compared to other rooms we booked on our trip. Breakfast eating area is very pleasant and looks out across street to beach. Staff is very nice but yes...older lady at front desk can seem brusque but is just a character and with a sense of humor if you make a little effort. And yes...if you are on third floor there are 65 steps to climb, because third floor is really fourth floor and rooms have 12' ceilings. But reviews complaining about a weak blow dryer...my 5 star hotel in Carcassone was punier...and small rooms that are not clean are simply not true. Baia is run by an Italian mama who melts when her granddaughter comes in and younger hotel staff/family are very friendly. My cell phone wouldn't work because of steep cliffs...I suppose some would even blame that on the hotel...but it is the Cinque Terre for heaven's sake! If you want to come to the Cinque Terre, be prepared for steep hills and historic buildings stacked into the hillsides.
