Considering the town is very small, and this hotel is very close to the train station, it's definitely a good find. I stayed here 2 nights because my only objective was to stay long enough to hike the Cinque Terre. As I said, being right near the train station (up a VERY steep hill, but still close, nonetheless) and close to good eateries was a big plus for me. Also, the free breakfast was decent considering it is free. I'm not sure if they are in all rooms, but my room at least had a mini-fridge as well.
The hotel itself is rather average. The wifi is kind of weird - you have to go get a new password every 24 hours from the front desk to connect each time, which isn't a HUGE deal but could be annoying to some. Also, I almost flooded the bathroom when taking a shower - it was very difficult to keep the water going down the drain and it ended up going all over the bathroom and even into the bedroom a little. They must have also been repainting the stairway or something because I always got an overwhelming whiff of paint while walking up/down the stairs to/from my room.
Considering the average hotel and average breakfast, however, I still rate this "Very good" because it was a comfortable bed, clean room and an absolutely FABULOUS location - I didn't see many other options this close to the water, and it was a great value considering the location. If your priorities are space and accommodating staff, and other "nice hotel" characteristics, this hotel is probably not for you. But if you're mainly going here for access to the Cinque Terre, then I'd say it's a good choice!
