La Branda affittacamere
Ranked #59 of 154 La Spezia B&B and Inns
Reviewed 8 October 2012

This hotel is very close to the train station, which is only 8 minutes from Riomaggiore, one of the 5 terre marvels.
The description of the hotel says "free parking". Not true! You park in the street so it is free for the night but not for the day... Moreover, I was not very confident in the neighborhood (train station area is never pleasant).
Comfortable room and bed. Nice bathroom.
You have to take the breakfast in a bar down the building, but it was closed (one bar closed on mandays, the other closed first week of august).

This B&B was situated in an apartment within an old mansion (having known better days), across the street from the station.It was more the standard of an reasonable Back-packers! The entrance hallway was very cluttered with furniture, there was no communal sitting area (just a converted apartment with all rooms let out) and breakfast (coffee + a brioche) was taken outside at a nearby coffee house-- most inadequate.The room which faced the noisey street, was very basic with unattractive decor. The ensuite was elementary, needing updating.The bedroom interior was poorly light making reading dificult.The furniture was poor quality.Other than when I arrived, I did not see or have communication with the managers for the entire 4 day stay. If I needed any information had to go to the train station information. On arrival the meet and greet was dificult due to poor english communication.It was very disconcerting not having a referral person on the premises or close by. I did not encounter any other guests during my time there. It was clean and I made my own bed each day-- towels were changed.
A good stepping off point for Cinque Terra. From that perspective it was convenient.would not recommend and most certainly would not return.

Room Tip: recoomend and internal room away from street noise.

I've arrived there with the hide impression that it would be a just like a hostel with the old spirit...It really appeared to be a delightful older mansion, opposite the train station and not far from the centre of La Spezia.
I stayed at La Branda B&B on November 2011 while I got stuck in La Spezia for more than 3 days because of flooding in Genova, and found it to be absolutely gorgeous.
The rooms were very clean and well kept, nicely decorated and very comfortable. The bathroom was equipped with a modern shower. A very nice bed gave me much needed tranquility. I didn't see rates much lower anywhere in the city including such quality, care and friendly atmosphere.
The staff was absolutely great and hospitable. Giulia and her father, two charming managers, made excellent recommendations places to see, they even made my reservations and called for my taxis, they really became a helping hand during the stay. I would wholeheartedly recommend La Branda B&B to anyone travelling to the area and for a quiet get away.
La Branda B&B helped make my misadventure long stay because of the flooding of Genova a memorable experience!!! Thanks Giulia!!!

We arrived at the train station and the place is literally across the street. We were a little unsure about the arrangement until we met the owner. She was so nice informative, kind and funny. The rooms were spacious and very clean. It was the perfect location for cinque terre and a quarter of the price. It was also close to the main drag.. About a block away. It delivered exactly what was advrtised and expected. Nice surprise.
