Eremo Gaudio, you surpassed my expectations! We stayed here two nights in early October during our honeymoon. We took the advice of some of the other reviewers and caught a taxi to the hotel (12 Euros). If you pack light (carry on sized luggage), it will be fairly easy to walk from the train station...if you are in good health.
Our room was located on the lower section of the hotel. The room was clean and looked fairly new/renovated. The view from our room was absolutely breathtaking! However, i highly recommend taking the funicular up to the top section of the hotel. The view up there is even better!
Breakfast was served in the dining area of the lower section. You get a selection of breads, jams, yogurts, hard-boiled eggs, and a really cool Nespresso coffee machine! Man, i need to get one of those...
The downside of Eremo Gaudio is its location and thin walls. Its located about a 20 minute walk from the dock. However, the walk is fairly scenic and is worth the views you get from your room. Keep in mind, this hotel has thin walls and we were able to hear our neighbors TV. The solution to this is to not forget your earplugs! Just give the hotel a shot if you want a romantic getaway.
