“Love that hotel”
Reviewed 2 April 2008

We went back to Monterosso in march 2008 for the first time since the euro was the currency of choice. Our destination, La Spiaggia hotel, for saturday 22 march which was a very special day, plus a few more days to enjoy the Cinque Terre.

Many times we had made this journey since the hotel was a one star pensione on the beach and we used to trudge up the long marble staircase with our heavy luggage. What wonderful surprise to find a modern hotel with an elevator and to be so warmly welccomed by Andrea Poggi and his family.

A cozy room at the top with a stylish Italian bathroom was assigned and after that we all enjoyed a glass of wine in the sunshine beside the Ligurian sea. In the old days it would have been a glass of grappa and THEN you got the key.

Andrea Poggi can recommend wonder ful places to see as wells as to eat whether it is around the corner, or under the bridge or delicious tender Ravioli in Pignone or excellent donkey stew at the Gufo Nero in Ghemme on the way Malpensa Airport.

We were so happy to see Andrea again and will return because we know we will always be well looked after at La Spiaggia by the wonderful Andrea Poggi and his friendly staff.

After stepping off the train in Monterrosso without accomodation, my wife and I walked into the La Spiaggia due to the great location. The staff were really helpful in finding us a room with double bed, private bathroom and and small terrace window with a small view of the ocean. Overall the room wasn't deluxe, having trouble with small ants whenever food was left out, but what do you expect when on a budget without pre booked accomodation. What made up for this was the fantastic views and location. They did have other rooms that were booked heavily facing the ocean and outdoor terrace that i would recommend.

Brought my husband for his 40th birthday last year, and we just loved it, we had a very clean, modern and bright beach facing apartment. The hotel on my request had organised a bottle of prosecco on arrival which was fab, Andree is a wonderful Italian man and we had no problems what so ever with him or any of his staff, we have been to Monterosso a number of times so are very self sufficient and know how to get around. Love the hotel and will be back. P.S. It was a nice surprise to get a Post Card from Andre while he was on his Chirstmas Holidays in Florida!!!!??

We choose this hotel because of the good reviews on this site and we were not disappointed at all. The best views ever especially early in the morning. The friendliness of the owner made our day every morning and the romantic atmosphere of the village and the harbour were both unforgettable. Simple but clean rooms nice public areas and Mr. Poggi in action trying to keep everyone happy and pleased.
Thank you Mr Poggi once again for your friendliness and hospitality.

Our stay at the La Spiaggia as part of our Northern Italy Honeymoon was an absolute highlight of our trip.
We literally stumbled upon Monterosse by choosing to get off at the next station on route to La Spezia, and it was the best stroke of good fortune. A fellow traveller directed us to this hotel, and all of our experience there was great. The highlight of the hotel is its owner Andrea. After getting settled in an excellent room (people constantly talk about the small size of most Italian Hotel Rooms, but if you're going to travel here get used to it). The hotel was recently renovated and the rooms are excellent, with flat screen LCD TV's and excellent bathroom. We were invited to the bar for a drink on Andrea (you must try his home made Sambuca) and were entertained for a good hour with some of Andrea's tales. Andrea will not only provide recommendations for restaurants in Monterosso, but also for any other cities that you will be travelling to you, and all were great. Be sure to take advantage of this and enjoy your stay in possibly the greatest stretch of towns in Italy.

Truth be told, we contacted La Spiaggia because so many of the other hotels were sold out. As it turned out, we had a fabulous stay at La Spiaggia. As always, it's the people who make a difference and Mr. Poggi and his staff are A#1! Our room was tiny, a European example of using every square inch to the max. But it was very clean and comfortable and we weren't in our room very much other than to sleep and shower. Our room overlooked the beach and the sea. The first night we went to a restaurant I had read about in the NY Times. Mr. Poggi made the reservation as we requested, but I could tell he wasn't all that excited about it. We should have gone with one of his recommendations - we ended up spending more money than we had to , the meal was just OK, and the service not very good. The next night, we went to one of Mr. Poggi's highly recommended restaurants and it was great: fabulous food at a reasonable price. All in all we just loved Cinque Terre. From there we went back to the Milan Airport and again, took Mr. Poggi's recommendation and instead of spending our last evening having dinner at the Crowne Plaza at the airport, we went to the wonderful little town of Arona and had a most memorable evening. Our thanks to Mr Poggi and his staff for helping to make our trip so special.

Due to the popularity of Cinque Terra we had a hard time obtaining a hotel confirmation. I called La Spiaggia and was able to get a confirmation for a room with a shared bath down the hall. I was expecting to share with one other room and so agreed. We shared with several rooms. This was not going to work for us. Mr. Poggi was very accommodating and arranged for us to have a room in the main hotel. It saved our trip. The staff is so very nice and helpful. Mr. Poggi loves to laugh and joke. He also knows where good yet not overly expensive restaurants are. His recommendations were excellent and the staff made the reservations for us. We had a wonderful time for the 5 nights we were there. I would go back in a heartbeat and stay at La Spiaggia again. As I sip my wine and enjoy my pesto I remember our wonderful visit.
