We stayed here for 1 night whilst visiting the Cinque Terra - should have stayed more. We had a little trouble finding it, with only a small sign on the building wall amongst many other signs, and right opposite the busy markets. The building appears a little old from the outside and when going into the building foyer and lifts you start to think you made a mistake coming here. But when going through the door to the B&B what a tremendous surprise!! Ultra modern!! Our room, on a corner of the building was very large, spacious, had a queen bed and another day bed, beautiful bathroom, large windows opening up to the markets, and when shut nearly soundproof. Everything fantastic! The fridge had a sign "help yourself - everything in the fridge is complimentary", with 2 fruit juices, water and snacks. Only place in Italy with that! Only place in Italy where we could watch TV in English also. We had a great night, with takeaway kebabs watching English TV till midnight. Breakfast was great, and we met Crystal, the owner's little dog sitting in her handbag on a stool - we nearly dog-napped her. The lady owner was very friendly and helpful with parking the car and catching the train to the Cinque Terra. We had a great time, and wished we could have stayed longer. Dont miss it if going to the Cinque Terra.
