“Comfortable and friendly”
Reviewed 19 October 2013

This was my second visit to "La Spiaggia". The proprietor, Andrea, remembered me (after 10 plus years!) and was just as helpful in suggesting itineraries and restaurants as on my previous visit. Although the room (try to get an ocean view) was a bit small, it was clean and comfortable for us. What makes this a great place to stay is its convenient location (close to train station) and the charm of Andrea and his staff. I'm sure that we'll re-visit Andrea in the future.

This hotel is located in the new town, right across the road from the beach. Make sure you get a room facing the sea though as the other side is pretty ordinary - not much of a garden view as they say! The family is beautiful and will do anything for you - all you need to do is ask! We felt the rooms were pretty average though - compared to what we had stayed in for the rest of the trips. Great shower though! The walls were pretty thin however, we could hear the guy next door snoring in his sleep!

The best thing about this hotel is the amazing location. Beautiful views of the beach and promenade in front of the hotel. Monterosso is also a very "user friendly" town to walk around compared to the other Cinque Terre towns. It is very flat and has many bars and cafes all within easy walking distance. We had initially booked a room with terrace and balcony but we had to change our travel dates and so we had to compromise and have a smaller room with sea view for two nights and then change to the original balcony room for our last night. We were very disappointed in the smaller room. Although it had a lovely view it was extremely small, very hard for two people to walk around the end of the bed and to manoevouring the room at the same time. The bathroom had no outside ventilation and had a faint odour most of the time. We were surprised that this room was the same price as the large balcony room which was excellent. Unfortunately on our last day the weather was very stormy so we were unable to take advantage of the wonderful balcony, however, the room was large and spacious and the bathroom large and well ventilated. This room also had adequate window coverings making it dark in the morning which the smaller room did not. If staying at this hotel I would make sure you booked the large corner balcony room particularly as it is the same price as less spacious and well equipped rooms. Breakfast was only just adequate. Also be aware that the hotel office does not open until 8.30 am so if you need to book out earlier you will need to do it the night before. Francesa was very friendly and helpful, recommending restaurants and helping us to sort out our train tickets and timetables.

Room Tip: Choose a large corner balcony room, Room 23 was great.

Dear Lorraine,
very much indeed I thank you for the nice letter you posted about your stay.
As I told previous writers we have not put the prices up since 2007 and we are trying not to do so in the future. That's why rooms the all of them have the same price.
In fact the one who books earlier the better room will get.
I read that you have been very disappointed in the smaller room, but we've done our best to find you a room overlooking the sea and we couldn't do anything else.
All our rooms they have shutters just to make it dark in the morning, perhaps you didn't notice them in the smaller room.
Referring to breakfast you can read dozens of comments on TA saying that our breakfast is fantastic.
Thanking you a lot,
Hope to see you again soon,
Andrea

The owner was very hands on with his guests giving some great advice on where to dine, drink and hike. He even had a good recommendation for dinner in Venice as well - our next stop after Monterosso. The room was worth the price although we really didn't stay in the room much. Breakfast was good... a pretty standard italian breakfast offering. The location was perfect! Just a couple steps across the street to the beach. They charged (over charged) for beach towels though so best to bring your own if possible.

Room Tip: It's not a hilton, no reason to chose a more expensive room over a basic one. it's the beach...

6 of us stayed for two nights in late September and found La Spiaggia and its owners delightful.Everything was top notch, and the car and attention of the staff was unbelievable. I forgot my camera battery charger and when I inquired they found it and mailed it back to me in the US!
The restaurant advice was all very good,the hotels wine just fine!

Hotel La Spiaggia is a beautiful building right on the beach. Francesca was so helpful when we arrived, greeting us with a glass of wine and a map. She explained the hiking trails, various restaurant recommendations, etc. We knew going into our stay that we would be changing rooms after our first 2 nights (from an A/C room to a non-A/C room). Both rooms were beautiful with views of the ocean, but our room with a large balcony and no A/C was worth the switch! Maria (the owner's daughter) was also very helpful throughout our stay. Both her and Francesca were so sweet, friendly and great resources! While the hotel itself and Cinque Terre were both beautiful, we were sad to leave the people as well! Note: La Spiaggia is at the far north end of Cinque Terre, something to keep in mind if you are travelling town to town (which is easy by train and a beautiful hike!).

We just spent 3 nights here and hated to leave. We paid for ocean view rooms which were well worth the little extra cost as we had a small balcony with chairs with the most amazing view. The location is ideal - just a short walk from the train station and within easy walking distance to Old Town. The owner and his family were wonderful - he is quite a character!! Not too impressed with their breakfast but there were lots of options for a cheap breakfast in town. Internet connection is sparse and very frustrating. I had a bad experience upon arrival - my wallet was stolen at the train station. I have read lots of warnings about pick pockets and thought I was being very careful carrying a cross-body bag, but it didn't save me from being robbed. The gypsies pushed their way onto the train as we were trying to get off, and while I was struggling with my small suitcase, a woman unzipped my purse and stole my wallet. The owner, Andrea was so kind when he heard what happened that he even offered to lend me some cash. Unbelievable. I recommend this hotel for the location, the view and the owner!!

Room Tip: Definitely worth the extra charge for ocean view rooms at the front on the top floor.
