I stayed here for one night on business in July 2012. My room was tiny - barely enough space to walk around the bed, although it did have a stunning view of the beach and promenade. The bathroom was so small that you could not sit straight on the toilet seat because the shower unit was in the way. I am not over tall, so how anyone over 5ft 8 tall is supposed to cope I have no idea. The room was badly in need of a lick of paint and the doors were yellowed with age. However, it was clean and the bed was rock hard (a positive for me). Unusually for Italy, the air conditioning was pretty powerful, which is just as well as it was 90 degrees outside.
The breakfast (served on the 6th floor) was sufficient, although the room was very hot when we were there, which certainly did not encourage anyone to linger.
When we arrived there was only one man who seemed to be on duty for all roles. He was receptionits, barman, parking attendant and meetings organiser. And he was on reception again when we left the following day. A little understaffed was my overriding impression of the place.
As a place to stay on business it was definitely not a place I would return to. As a very basic holiday hotel, the best thing to recommend this is its location right on the water in Lerici. However, don't expect any frills and if you expect to spend any time in your room, find somewhere with more space and a few more home comforts
