Second floor sea view room is spectacular. Views from your patio of all of Cinque Terra, although parking lot a bit in the way. Make sure you get a sea view particularly if you plan to stay more than one night. Not sure if I would stay here without it for more than a night, unless the room price was fantastic. The view and patio really make the place and you can spend a whole afternoon enjoying the patio with a glass of wine or two, some snacks and a good book. Hotel provides free taxi service up and down the hill about every hour, but if you are less patient like we were desiring to get started right away early in the day or to be back in your room after a long day hiking, you "take the hill" and it is quite a trek, particularly up (we did it 4x). The hotel, despite its name, is not luxurious. The rooms, while large, are pretty spartan and the beds were just ok. The bathroom was tiny but had plenty of hot water. There was a minifridge--stocked full --so you had to move their stuff out to get your stuff in. Breakfasts were great--in my view. No eggs or bacon, but not for us. We preferred the hot coffee latte, fresh yogurt, fresh fruit and hot steamy croissants. The staff was a little grouchy (except for the pretty young lady at breakfast with a big smile serving coffee and the two very helpful night staff who sent us up with a hot thermos of coffee and breakfast goodies because we were leaving so early in the morning--excellent service there). Staff was not persnickety about enforcing the rule about not taking away a breakfast item or two to eat later. Be aware you need to get the gate exit code and to walk down if you are leaving before 7 am. Lobby area also needs a bit of a renovation to really be a real bar. We'd stay here again, although I'll bring my own pillow next time.
