This functional hotel was in a very handy spot to the La Spezia station for our day trip to the Cinque Terre, and excellent value for money. The staff (particularly Sara) were very helpful and efficient, the breakfast was one of the best we've had in an Italian hotel during our extended travels, with home-made cakes and breads and the room was newly decorated. However I wouldn't want to stay here for any more than overnight, and would not recommend it for anyone who is larger than average in height or weight or has mobility issues: The entire bathroom is the size of a small toilet, there is no lift, and our double was actually two singles pushed together, which moved apart with too much movement. This wasn't a problem for us relatively fit middle-aged couple, but could be for others. The rooms were also very close together and not completely sound-proof so this should also be kept in mind for those who are light sleepers. The management and staff are trying very hard, but the hotel is an old one that no amount of redecoration can make bigger or more modern.
