We were able to check in early, to a nice room only a very short (1min) walk from the train station.
Best to ask for rooms away from the lift, but otherwise great. The breakfast was great with a wide variety on offer.
They had just upgraded the wifi which maybe why ours was bad, but they thanked us for letting them know so they could fix it. It's room by room connections.
Very handy for exploring the Cinque Terre without having lift suitcases up stairs...
