A one star hotel here means that there is a communal bathroom and shower room (I only saw one and my guidebook says there are 10 rooms - yeesh). And hotel is a pretty strong word - there's a German lady who lives here who rents out rooms, I think, so it's a little bit like staying at Grandma's. It was also I think 70 euro a night for a double which is insane anywhere else in the world, but this is in Santa Margherita Ligure, which is pretty damn expensive (of course, we were travelling last minute too).
That being said, we had a positive experience overall. The lady is really nice and unobtrusive. The beds are extremely comfortable and everything is perfectly clean. It's near a hospital but there is no noise from there and it's very close to the beach and the center of town. This is a tiny operation, so you'd definitely have to call to reserve a room, but for us it worked very well.
PS - she will also provide breakfast for a fee, if you ask her.
