This place is super convenient to La Spezia train station and it is a great base for exploring Cinque Terre. It's literally a stones throw away from the train station, just make sure you get off at Centrale. This is not a fancy hotel chain, but instead you're supporting some locals that are renting out rooms in two apartments. This may not meet some people's expectations for lodging, but it's a great low frill option for some travelers.
We went with the shared bath to save a few bucks and it was modern and super clean. There was a kitchen available, a washing machine, some living space, as well as a balcony. They weren't around to check in, but there was a note with a phone number and they were there in five minutes after calling. I felt like someone important with all the keys, there are three keys for doors and two for the elevator. There was no AC, but an oscillating fan was provided. Wifi didn't work at first, despite restarting the router, but it worked later.
The cafe below provides a pastry and a beverage for the second "b." It's not filling but very tasty, and that's an Italian breakfast anyway. We would stay there again.
