“Do not go to this hotel”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2012

We spent two painful nights in this hotel in July 2011. We travel a lot around Europe, and I have a pretty good understanding what a 4 star hotel looks like. This was not even one star, unless you get a room from the upper floors. First we had a room on the second floor, which was... I can't describe it, I should have taken photos, but at that moment I just wanted to cry. The carpet and walls on the hallway were bad enough, dirty, smelly etc., but the room was worse. The carpet was filled with hair, dust balls and dirt for several cm. The pillows were impossibly old and bumpy, the beds did not have mattress pads at all and the linen were coarse to touch. I told my husband not to even start to unpack our bags and went back to the reception, shaking. We got a bit better room on the upper floor, but it was no four star either.
La Spezia is not a place worth sleeping in anyway, it's pretty much dead no matter which day you stay there. Try the smaller villages, maybe a two star bed&breakfast there won't ruin your trip like NH La Spezia did ours.

The NH is a good hotel, if you can get a good deal on a room it's a good place to stay. The rooms are a decent size, and some have nice views over the sea as ours did. The room lacked some ammenities, like a safe, which was disappointing. There is no parking provided, you must pay for public parking, which will cost you about 19EUR a day. The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is a little tired looking, and not quite what I would expect from NH. Their standards are usually a little higher. However it wasn't disappointing. You will find the rooms clean, and the hotel safe and close to all the ammenities. It's fine for a night or two, but I wouldn't recommend for longer stays. The breakfast in the morning was very good.

Room Tip: There are nice views of the sea, but at an angle only.

We stayed here for 3 nights. We were on the top floor overlooking the harbour. We dined at the hotel for dinner on the balcony each evening. The waiters were very attentive and we enjoyed our meals. Breakfast was fine and we headed out each day. The reception staff were always helpful and cheerful. The only thing we did not like was the 2 lifts, you were never sure if they would get you to your floor. Only small ,they really require updating for a hotel and for the tourists. La Spiza is a lovely town and of course Cinque Terre is a must to see on your travels. Keep up the good work.

Dear GUS079
many thanks for choosing NH HOTEL GROUP for your stay in La Spezia
La Spezia is the natural gate to 5 Terre villages. From her you can go by train in 10 minutes, or by boat with an amazing coast journey.
It is a pleasure that you agree our being " NATURAL HOST" as well as hte view from the room and our restaurant. It is a pleasure to read you enjoyed our summer restaurant service in the summer terrace where we use to serve our ANTIOX breakfast and dinner with an amazing view on the city garden and sea promenade.
Thanks and hope to see you again

Don't let the lobby fool you! Lobby/reception looks good but, if you're unlucky enough to get one of the rooms on the bottom floors, expect to put up with the smell of sewer and/or mold. Upper floors have apparently been updated but, until the bottom floors are completed, those rooms should not be rented out.

Staff not very knowledgeable about the area. Referred us to a restaurant that was closed (several are on Sundays) and didn't know the location or hours of laundromats (which are required when you're on a 24 day trip).

Room Tip: If you can't get an updated room, go somewhere else.

The room is clean but really needs renovation, breakfast is nice and the staff very kind and helpfull especialy at reception they even recomended agood seafood restautant (Bartely) .The price is too high for the room condition/

Room Tip: try eor a renovated room

It's an older hotel that's been remodeled. Clean rooms, fast Internet for a price. Overall it's a good stay close to the water.

This hotel was a major let down.After viewing it on line before departing it looked great,but that was once the renovations would be finished how it would look.Our room was a triple which you had to climb over the double bed to get into the single.Wall paper was hanging off the wall.It was so tiny the poter who brought our bags to our room wanted to know where to put our luggage as there was no room inside.Towels given were thread bear shocking for a a 4 star hotel.Staff were nice dinner and breakfast were the only good thing.We were in la spezia on sunday- Tuesday.Sunday and Monday almost all shop and resturants were closed so it was quite boring,if i ever went back to cinque terre i would not stay in la spezia monterosso is heaps better.
