“You can find somewhere else”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2012

Less said about this place the better
At one stage I honestly lay on my squeaky steel frame bed, looked at the ceiling of my sparsely furnished room and thought, "This must be what it's like to be in prison."
Along with being poorly furnished, there was a tv that had an upside down image, a common toilet in a room that also served as a laundry/cleaning room, and a common shower that leaked all over the floor
But wait, there's more
I was woken one night by shouting and a woman screaming from the apartment complex outside of my window, and then there was silence
I felt for sure I was overhearing a murder!
Luckily I was exhausted from walking the Cinque Terre and fell asleep easily
The only thing this establishment has going for it is the fact that you can park easily on the street (a novelty in Italy) and it is very close to the centre of town
What it hasn't got going for it is reasonable room rates
Oh,and the manager wanted payment in cash when I checked out to avoid paying tax, which meant I had to walk down the street to find a teller machine
