Everything was good value for the price we paid. The staff were friendly and the breakfasts were good. The rooms were very clean and tidy and there was always hot water for showers and plenty of clean white towels. The only problems for me were the thin walls between rooms and even between floors and it would be lovely, being British, to have tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms.
I did not sleep until 5 am because there was so much noise coming from a pizza bar next door playing loud music and people making noise in the square.
It's such a shame because the staff are friendly, the view amazing and the room nice. I highly recommend the hotel invests in sound proof windows.
"Nice hotel with great views, staff, and location."
My wife and I stayed at this hotel during our trip to Italy for our 25th anniversary. What a find!! The purpose of our visit to this area was to visit Cinque Terre but it was difficult to find a hotel there and to get to a hotel with your luggage so we decided to stay in Lerici and take the ferry to Cinque Terre. We made the right move. This beautiful little hotel is tucked into the hillside overlooking the ocean with a short walk down to the beach. We also discovered a gem of a town called Tellaro. Only 10 or 15 minutes by foot from the hotel, Tellaro (to me) is just as beautiful as Cinque Terre without all of the tourists. Tellaro also has a nice beach and good reasonably priced restaurants. Of course we went to Cinque Terre which was easy to get to from the hotel. We took a bus, which stops every 30 minutes in front of the hotel, to the Lerici city center. The Lerici city center is on the harbor with many restaurants, shops, and other activities. The Ferry departs from Lerici to Cinque Terre. The ferry ride itself is worth doing. You traverse across the bay of poets past an old castle and to the villages of Cinque Terre. There were many great photo opportunities including photos of Cinque Terre from the ocean view point. All in all, I would recommend staying at this hotel to anyone interested in visiting Cinque Terre, Lerici, or Tellaro.

We read and heeded the prior reviews and in our experience (2 nights in mid July) the stay was much, much better than anticipated. Our room was simple and basic but very clean. Although we had no balcony we did have a great beach view.
The bathroom was nothing to rave about but was far better than many Italian bathrooms we have used. Breakfast, while not a high point of the stay, was quite adequate and the view from the 2nd floor breakfast room was magnificent and made one want to linger.
Easy walking along the Lerici-San Terenzo boardwalk area and beaches is a high point.
Bottom line for us: this is a semi-budget place that delivered a great stay for a reasonabl rate.

"wonderful small hotel, great location near beach"
fantastic view of Gulf of Poets from room balcony. Just over the road from a beautiful beach, safe for swimming. Roof Terrace for sunbathing
Its a family run hotel-staff really went the extra mile with restaurant recommendations, advice on excursions and assisting with return travel to Pisa Airport. Hotel peaceful and barely aware of other guests
Breakfast plentiful and satisfying
I would love to return- and I would highly recommend though would prefer to keep it a secret!
