We chose this for the proximity to the train station which we were grateful for after a long day. Check in was very easy, and our mid-sized SUV fit snugly in the underground reserved parking.
The 4th floor superior double room was clean, the bed very comfortable, and had a mountain view. The medium sized room also had a safe, desk, two sitting chairs, and refrigerator. The 8 euro wi-fi charge is for 24 hrs of actual use (log on/log off and it lasted us three days). Bathroom is the euro style with small shower stall but plenty of pressure and very hot water if desired.
The breakfast was a nice surprise! Nice table settings, mountain view, ample pastry, cheese, meat selections, cappuccino, espresso, or American coffee. The attendant was friendly, smiled a lot, spoke English and attentive.
The desk clerk was helpful in assisting with train and bus schedules, (5 euros roundtrip bus fare to Porto Venere or Lerici). His restaurant recommendation, Osteria della Corte, was great!
We paid 218 euros for two nights and thought it was well worth it for the amenities, cleanliness, and location. We are returning in April and will stay here again.
